    So, turns out I made a little bit of an error - too many kill stripes and top of RF cap close to dome should match dome not rim, so here is the repainted dome and new kill stripes

    Sorry for the mega delayed response, unfortunately no progress only setbacks, I recently unpacked my kit to find the paint has cracked across the chest plates, I've surmised that its due to storage and the temperature of where I kept it, so looking like I will need to repaint them all.
    Additionally will be doing the back plate as it doesn't sit right as well as also paint issues.

    Gauntlets were fine if not a little bulky, but a friend of mine has offered to replace them with lighter 3D printed ones, so how could I refuse ;D
    Here is what we have done so far:

    Left Gauntlet minus missiles that will be transferred from old gauntlet


    Right gauntlet


    Source material for the change to right gauntlet

    [​IMG]
    As well as the ones for the change of connectors
    bvI1YtY.jpg

    And the connectors with piping
    1p1JEnc.jpg

    I'm planning on using that locate on the nodes protruding from the back of gauntlets, the pipes are silicone lighter and more flexible than braided so shouldn't hinder movement.

    Hope everything looks satisfactory and hope to bring progress in next post.

    So, turns out when you add a harness into the equation it really throws out your plates and reshaping seriously blisters the paintwork, so..... scrap collar and back plate, remake and strip back paint off remaining chest plates, this kit seems to want to test me *sigh*

    Without Jet Pack

    With jet pack

    Harness blocks to cover holes still need to be made and the strapping was adjusted while wearing it and caused gathering around the holes.

    I also seem to have developed a lean to the left somehow :rolleyes:
