Is your armor already painted? it's tough to see the flight suit due to the photo being too dark. What does the jetpack look like? Showing detail in the photos is key for getting assistance/input from everyone =)

Thanks for taking the time to read through. The armor is all painted; we're just waiting on Mike to finish up the gauntlets. The flight suit needs another round of weathering as there's a bit too much on it at the moment. Fortunately, it's washable. I've added more photos of the jet pack. here are some pictures of the flight suit.
