  3. Thanks so much for the paint store recommendation! I ended up taking a piece of ABS plastic to home depot and they just color matched it for me. Worked out perfectly for painting the screws and rivet heads! I also fixed the thigh ammo pack as requested.
  4. Forgot I had another question too. In regards to the thigh ammo pack, does the front middle bump need to align with the coverstrip?
  5. So I actually had a feeling that the paint color was off. I bought Humbrol gloss 22 that was cited on multiple reference/suggestion threads, and when you paint it on its MUCH whiter and matches the color of the armor. When it dries, it dries the color that you see. Am I doing something wrong? Or is there another paint that would do the trick?

I trimmed them up a bit because they seemed too big, and they fit much better now. Along the bottom edge (from edge to edge) it's roughly 12in total, with the measurement from the peak to the bottom edge is just over 5in...does this seem about right?
  10. Woo! Thanks all! I'll work towards that Centurion next, but I'm definitely taking a break for a bit lol. Thanks for all the help and suggestions!
  11. Thanks for the reply! Here are the requested photos that I was missing. Sniper Knee Thigh Ammo Rivet Ab Buttons Cod Piece/Butt Plate Lower Ear Screw In regards to the Hovi Mic Tip, I have this other wire mesh that I bought for the inside of the helmet. Would this work? I did essentially use the one provided by WTF, and I was under the assumption that it was approved even for Centurion status, but that's OK, easy fix anyway. Here are the two meshes as compar
