Hi All, well after months of work here are a few shots.
Of course after they were taken I noticed a few tweaks needing to be done.. such as thigh plates moved around on me which I have since added straps to both... and the ammo belt moved a bit too - working on a fix now as well.
What these pics don't show is all of the extra weathing and misting that was done.
I have a little more work to do on this, but overall this has been a satisfying process (eventhough frustrating at times).
Just wanted to share, as I gleaned many tutorials from the knowledge base here and wanted to say a big thank you as it made figuring things out a little easier.
