Where are you these days with your costume anyways.. Still trooping!Nice to see you back at it. Was a big follower during you earlier build. My first scratch build years ago was all sintra. Make sure you have good ventilation or wear a respirator if you have one. It can put off some nasty fumes.
I wish I knew this exsited before I started hacking away blindlyThose cutout are on the original too, but as you mentioned the neck piece should curve upward and the fact that the collar did not overlap the backplate, the whole backplate sits lover, this is why the cutout is so visible.

Wait.... I got it.. the knee dart scene of course.
Taking away two things from this,
the first is yes they have the cylindrical dart and the cone/spike shaped one on the correct knee..
The second... another set of darts appear on the other side of the knee pad... which I cant see later on.. in any other scene which is odd..
