  1. Ah fantastic, I'll definitely be making a pair of those. Thanks for sharing the diagram Sent from my H8216 using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks guys! Really appreciate the feedback This is the internal strapping view. I've got the split rivets on the left side, though have a few more snap closures on the right as I'd struggled a few times with the alignment of the front and back plates. I also have 2 additional ones from the butt to kidney plate (5 in total) to try and reduce the flaring.

  3. So, I've been working slowly on the build. Though got a little stuck on a few bits and wondered if anyone else has encountered similar issues or any comments? So, I've got a few things left. Sniper knee, drop boxes, shoulder straps, calf closure to name a few... Though I'm worried about the abdomen and butt situation. Though this is the current front view. The belt I have feels slightly too tight, which seems to be causing the ab shell to squeeze together and the butt to flare out. Is this the only reason, or do you think the sides could be trimmed? Also, the alignment of the top and bottom of the panel looks abit off? Last picture is showing the general size of the armour, and chest plate on top, with the belt hanging off slightly.
  4. Slowly working on the build and getting very much acquainted with E6000 and painters masking tape. Currently moving onto full body strapping and looking at getting the split rivets in, though with the Ab to Kidney plates being flush, the RS seems to have a slight lip of around 25mm on the Ab plate edge. Is this meant to be removed, or left depending on the size of the individual? I've marked the split rivet placement, though noticed lots of builds removing the lip/overhang where I've marked my rivet placements. Both Cricket's build and Peter's ANH RS Build have removed the slight lip, so I'm leaning towards removing it, just unsure if it's a required change on the RS?

  5. Thanks Christine and TheSwede! Christine's build WIP is amazing. I've been reading it back to back and looking forward to implementing some of the modifications. I'll have some more photos soon, but massive thanks to you both at this early stage.
  6. Thanks Cricket, I'll get the Spa going soon and get the strapping in. Thanks for the advice Is there meant to be a return edge around neck line on the chest plate?
  7. Hi All, I recently acquired an RS propmasters kit build and getting the general sizing going on. It's feeling a little large on the mid-section with the ab & kidney plates, but wondered what everyone's thoughts were? Height wise it feels ok (I'm 5'9), though maybe a little off the chest neck area to bring the chest up a few centimetres? Also, the butt plate, I'm guessing that needs hot water treatment to curve it inwards, as it's looking ridiculously large. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, and apologies in advance for the skinny running legs 45" angles on cover strips due to be cut in, bifurcated rivets inbound too.
