    Can u tell me Zoltan Tyrell is your armor CC or actual metal? From the first pics that u posted it is hard to tell. If CC, how did u achieve this look? Looking forward to seeing it completed.

    Sure. Its CC. Do you mean its difficult to tell because of the weathering or because the lighting is strange?

    If the weathering, i used humbrol enamel orange and a little satin black acrylic.
    Just used steel wool grade 0000 from start to finish. Nothing else to sand/polish it.

    Only a small update here. Got the Flightsuit from Bobamaker and also the Jacket.
    Managed to get a set of MR westars for a good price. These will serve me well for cirtain troops and use the Hyperfirm cruzer ones for others.

    Started putting the armor on and ran out of snaps.

    Oh and thanks Cruzer, got the gauntlets sorted.

    Another little update. Got all but Jetpack and Girth belt laid out now.
    When the rest arrive(including more snaps) I can build.

    In regards to the armor/ vest attachment. If you CA glue your snaps on the back of your armor first. Put a little rub-n-buff on the snaps you can place the armor on the vest and see the little cirles where you need to puch the holes. I recommend wearing the vest, or at least put a pillow in it before you mark your vest for holes. The armor will sit different on the vest while wearing it than it does when it's flat. I did mine while I wore it, in a mirror.

    Nick, looking very good buddy, that is a nice Jango set up. I guess you will be needing this very soon then buddy.

    and this to hold it on


    I have worked out the lower clip, which is removable if you don't want to use it.

    The anchor points have been installed inside to mount the other side of the clips. I just need to give it a final black wash to soften any recessed areas, mount the greeblies and then cut the holes for the harness. Will be with you before the week is out

    You sound surprised

    The harness, all in black does have seem to have a harder edge than the Boba one, even though they share the same design principals.

    Nick, can you give me your approx build/waist/girth I will then cut the straps to the appropriate length. PM if you don't want to post it and them jeans you have had for ages may be 32...........
