The following is the last update on my build thread on Mercs. I figured since its nearly done I should post up here Cheers!
A few updated pics. Biggest issue to come up so far is the flight vest. I bought matching leotards and had one altered to have shorts and tshirt sleeves for the flightvest. I bought a large for the vest thinking it should be a little looser to fit the other underneath. Unfortunately now there is way too much material and I'm having to tuck it all in the back. One example of the problems this causes is the left shoulder in the first two pics. It's sagging because of excess material. (
I will either being doing a whole new flight vest or putting in some ties on the back like a corset to keep the vest tight and all the plates in place. Most of the plates are fine but the torso plate under the chest is super loose and irritates both me and my wife.
Either way here are the pics. I'll be knocking out the backpack, backplate and additional pouches this week and hopefully the electronics on the guantlets by next weekend.
