    Well, the lid was done a year ago. The armor was only just started a year ago, and then we had a baby. So 6 months down the road and I'd not done any building at all. I then started and finished my Snow Clone helmet and then back to the Mando armor!

    I've been working on the armor now for about 4 weeks straight since picking it up again.

    I'm a full-time father to 4 great kids and when they're in school it means I have a lot of free time during the day after my "chores" are done.

    I do but the seller is in the UK. Just search for "webbing" and "snap buckles".

    Ok, the new boots came today. Much more comfortable for my wide feet!






    Gonna stitch in some velcro to my suit later for my leg plates(thigh and shin armor) and I'll be good to go next time!

    Congrats on finishing your armor... But you'll learn that you'll never finish the upgrading... You're going to find something new to replace or to add, but come on, that's the fun of this hobby...

    With more upgrades means more photos to post up on this thread along with events being attended to. So this thread is not going to be left at the bottom. We will still be seeing those great things to add on. LOL!

    Nice going skip, once I stop "doing a kyramud" and give myself projects to do, I might actually get some time to put my armour together and we can troop!

    That'd be sweet mate. I'm struggling to find a buddy or two so far as everyone's going to London at the end of November. I'd like to go along but it's too far too soon I'm afraid. I have too much on here for that one.

    Get your armor done!

    November this year is busy for me anyway, I am wrestling every weekend!

    I'm probably going to half inch your webbing idea, but have it under the t-shirt thingy!
