Hi mates,

Do you know how to attach the armor, chest and back to the vest and the thigh, knees and shin to the flightsuit? I know that snaps are used on the chest and back but I don't know exactly where to put them. And the leg ones I don't know if they are attached with velcro or snaps. Also I don't really know how to attach the armor that goes in the boots.

Thank you very much for your help.

I would suggest reading through this thread


It was practically my bible when constructing my Jango.

The leg armor is attached with elastic straps that run through "buttonholes" sewn into the legs of the flight suit. Give me a minute, I'll find a photo in the gallery to show what I mean.

I never noticed that! Thanks for telling me! I thought it was only with velcro and snaps. So the leg armor goes with velcro, snaps and elastic bands for a very good fixing, right?

Personally, I have male snaps on the back of the armor plates, the female side of the snaps attached to webbing tabs sewn on to the ends of a piece of non-roll elastic. Once you get the strap placement and tension correct, there is no need for velcro. It's quite the process to put them on, but it looks great when you get them right.
