    I think im going to have to switch. Looks like you're gonna use the Fenn Shysa version too. But then again it would look pretty sweet if we all had it

    yeah I'm using the Fenn Shysa type... but I'm going to get rid of the backslash at the top of the eyes and thin out the corners a little bit

    hey just wanted to give a little heads up. Changing my thigh ammo and holster rigs over to actual hard plates. They'll mount similar to the ones shown on #5, with the ammo packs and holster mounted directly to the thigh plates. Also am strongly considering (due to cost and time) to combine both this and my SAS mando into one, really cool, totally awesome mando, since the 2 have basically the same skill set/function (special ops team ldr and TAC)

    yeah considered that... I think I'm going to go with the hard piece stuff just because I haven't seen it done yet and I think it'd be cool.

    this is probably the wrong thread to ask you this on, but oh well

    What were the names of the colors you used on my mando? It might make it a bit easier when looking for my mando

    thanks in advance

    you could use these pieces as a base for hard parts... Cut sintra to fit around the soft parts, then start glassin'

    he he yeah I thought so too, but the significant other disagrees! Soo... plan for now is to revert to the original color scheme of Green/Grey/Blue on the new armor design. However, been watching the SG-1 marathon on SyFy (big fan!) and I was thinking, ya know... I wanted something that would resemble the Air Force elite, without doing anything that would violate uniform policy... I'm thinking... green plates on a green flightsuit with black vest and web belt... I'm thinking... this change will keep in theme with my original plan... make my wifey happy and... shouldn't complicate things for Lev'ika with his sketch, since he won't have to change a think (because it's a B&W sketch), it will also allow me to maintain my original (and somewhat popular) color scheme... to a degree anyhow.

    Okay vode... here's the SITREP! I have...

    1. Chest/ab/collar plates done and painted
    2. A backplate (temporary) done and painted
    3. Material for combat suit and vest (grey ripstop nylon) (Can also use OD Flightsuit)
    4. Boots (going to use my issued sage green boots)
    5. black web belt and a dropleg hoster for the sidearm (may have to change this some)

    I still need:
    1. Buy'ce (A'den's working on it for me)
    2. Gauntlets (Designed... will wait to build until I get moved)
    3. Knee Plates
    4. Shin Plates
    5. Redo Shoulders
    6. Pouches for belt
    7. Rifle and Sidearm
    8. Visor/Light/Laser for buy'ce
    9. Accessories to go in pouches/on armor
    10. Sew up Vest and Combat Shirt/Pants

    As soon as I figure out why my computer is being stupid with my periphials I'll get some progress pics of the plates posted up.

    Okay vode, Here's the colored versions of Kal Waco V 3.5 (I think that's what I'm up to now! lol) One of these will be the final version, and it will be the version I stick with for a long, long time. I plan on being able to interchange the Green/Grey battlesuits as necessary (environmental factors). What I want to know from you guys is this... which buy'ce do you like best, which set up do you like best. I personally like the buy'ce on suit 1, with the blue patterns on the check and head, I don't know what color I will make the lense of the "tactical visor" yet tho, so which color... green or red for that? Let me know what you think. Right now I'm still open to suggestions/comments/ideas because I only have the chest plates done right now and the shoulder bells are about 90%, I do have to repair and repaint those.

    Kal Waco

    blue for the master color or for the lense? I thought about painting the actual visor blue... may still do that... but I don't know if blue would be a good color for the "tactical" lenses... it's not exactly a NV or IR looking lense color... could be UV I guess... that'd be interesting.

    BTW... found one of these for $10 at my local Base Exchange... I think it'll make a great Tri-shot for my gaunts. It even has a built-in targeting laser! Guess what I'm going to go pick up tomorrow after work (graduation)! lol BTW... just to share... passed my last qualifyer ride on Monday, so I'm now a fully qualified Air Battle Manager.
