    I think maybe lower "your left" side chest just a tad, or raise the right to even them out. I think either way would work.Looks really great!

    Thanks Dynamic1I think I am on the same page as you about moving the left side down. Come on guys.....some more input, I am going to try and work on this later today.

    Mullreel - It looks great. Here are my humble suggestions:

    1. Agree with the lowering of your L side chest; it will also help close the gap with the ab plate.
    2. Move the "D Ring" holder up until it is flush next to the girth; I don't think you should be able to see the leather piece.
    3. Do you have plans of attaching your holsters to your thigh armor? If so, I think you might want to bring your L holster forward, just a bit.

    Like I said, those are just my opinions. By the way, that flightsuit and vest look great!! Congrats!! It's all come together really well.

    Bring both chest plates in and the left one down. Bring the diamond down to center in the opening of the two chest plates after they are moved. That should help balance it all out. Also bring up the d ring holder on the holsters so the holder touches the bottom of the girth belt as has been suggested. If you want to make the cod/girth/ammo belt/holsters/thighs all one piece look for a thread I started that shows how I did it.

    Flight suit legs were cut and button holed yesterday, all armor is attached.

    I attached the cod and thighs to the holsters. I am getting close.

    Still need to cut the JP holes in the leather vest and attach the clips to the jetpack. Hoping I can get it done this week. The 110+ degree heat (in the shade) really cuts down on the time I want to spend in the shop.

    I just saw you pics..(tells you how long it has been since I have been on.) one thing I noticed besides the chest plate, which sounds like you got figured out, is that your girth belt looks like it can be dropped down a bit more because I can still see the leather above the cylinder on the cod piece. Also you might want to raise up the pouches as well to have a bit more even amount of girth belt showing above and below the pouches. Otherwise it looks really nice!

    Some of the things you listed I have already done.....but I certainly appreciate the input. It is also nice to hear from someone who has successfully built Jango to reassure some of the things I have done. When I attached the cod and thighs to the holsters I moved the pieces around so that the girth belt would sit more properly. I also have another ammo belt that I am going to be using. It is a little lighter shade. I am going to cut it to fit me precisely so that it will sit a bit higher on the girth.

    One question for guys who have fitted out a leather vest.......did you reinforce the holes in the back or just cut them and leave the raw edges on the leather? I have thought about trying to stitch around the holes but my sewing skill are still in the learning process.

    I need to take some outside pics so that the colors will show up better. The heat has been made it hard to get motivated to go out with gear on.

    Thanks for the input

    I only have 2 slots cut in my leather vest for the JP straps. I didn't reinforce them and I am not having any problems with them.

    I did not reinforce the slots in the leather and have had no issues.

    Mullreel - It looks like you NAILED IT!! Congratulations!! Two VERY SMALL things that I think I noticed:

    1. Based on the reference pics you might want to consider blackening out the snaps on the boot armor; maybe a small piece of electrical/fabric tape.
    2. Did you add the silver on the sides of the boot soles? I couldn't completely tell in the pics, so you might have this done already.

    Again.....it looks AWESOME!!! I'm chomping at the bit to finish mine now. Congrats again.

    No silver on the boots yet, you spotted that one. The snaps I will probably just black out, maybe with the tape like you mention. The boots are kinda the last thing I am working on. I am trying to attach the boot armor better also. I originally put a snap on the toe ala the Seeker method but the snap came loose, so I will have to re do that.

    I am going to mask off the silver for the sides and put some R+B on them. I am hoping that MOW or Crow62 gets some boots going soon so that I can upgrade.


    Did you get that vest in the cargo hold? The price seemed really great.
  24. Aug 12, 2011, 9:41 AM - Re: My Jango WIP #74

    Haven't received a response yet regarding the vest I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Congratulations again on an AWESOME FINISH!!
