    Mar 25, 2007, 2:30 PM - BKBT armor on new vest #1

    I had SGB do a new vest to go with my new armor. I had some piping added to the edges. The new vest has been misted with SEM to get it a little darker. Let me know if it needs to go darker still. The armor was attached with line 20 snaps. Vest weathering to follow.

    My 1st vest on the left. FOR SALE BTW. New & improved shiny armor on my new vest: right



    AFTER SOME DARKENING WITH SEM:



    ORIGNIAL COLOR TO DARKER COLOR:


    I have MOW gauntlets and gloves I just wanted to show the vest.

    DARKER VEST:




    o







    I plan on applying for the Central Ca 501st when I'm finished with my upgrades.

    Yep. BKBT helmet. Shoulders are also BKBT, they came with the armor. Can't think of any names that I like.

    Im not a color expert, but from the pics of the real thing compared to your vest, I think its pretty dead on as far as color. I honestly dont think it needs to be darker, but thats from what I think.

    For my opinion the vest has to be darker.
    But that's my 2 cents.
    Nice Fett you are

    Upgrades done. One knee hasn't been strapped yet, and the MLC stubby is done but not hooked up yet.

    What did you find was the best way to attach the snaps to the armor?

    Also how did you weather the armor?

    Awesome suit BTW!!!
