    Congrats! Who made those holsters if you don't mind me asking? They look pretty sweet.

    @DutchFett, as soon as there is more to show, I will come by

    @MandalorianWarrior87, I will have to ask since I bought them second hand. But they look nice and alreday weathered, even now the pistols are added

    First test fit of the parts I have so far.

    Front: harnas needs to be made smaller or replaced by a smaller one.

    Back:
    The jet pack contains a speaker to connect a sound system to. I will try my TK sound system on it, see how it goes.

    Another happy day!

    Today arrived jumpsuit, vest, upper armor, some darts for the gauntlets....

    Will post some pics later. Before that I will attach the upper armor to the vest via snaps.

    Already shipped to me are the gauntlets and pistols. Almost there....

    Yes, he did a amazing job on those. Look and feel is great and they are nicely weathered. All I need is to get a bucket....

    So far, so good.

    I have everything except for leg armor and bucket.
    Next to do is some modifications, most obvious the vest armor and attach the hoses on the gauntlets.

    Small update, I have been busy with work and stuff. Only two more weeks for the helmet to arrive.

    See pic below.
    Attached the leg armor, almost as it should be. Needs some small adjustments and the legs of the flight suit are going to be shortened.
    Put the first snap on the shoulder for the armor, now for the other 35....



    I hope to be ready in December to troop at the Dutch Space Expo.

    I have been working on the chest armor, as shown in the pics below. Thanks to the tutorial of Cruzer somewhere here on the forum I attached it with the snap. I also places a little piece of leather in the snap to prevent tearing of the vest. Now on to the harnas !

    Here a pic of how it attached the armor:


    And the result (pic not too clear sorry):
