A quick update. Sorry for the low res phone pics. I was just excited to share. I'll post some proper pics soon to get better feedback. Things left to do: Attach and paint ab buttons Attach thigh

Build Update:

I haven't had much time to post, but have made progress on the build. I've trimmed the edges of everything except for the shins. I'll post more images when I get a chance. One thing I wanted some opinions on is the right thigh piece. From looking at other images, LFL & RS builds included, I could see that the top front seam was misaligned due to the originals being that way. But since there was always the thigh battery pack fastened, I assumed the bottom seam edges were aligned. Well I found the image below yesterday on RS's facebook page and I'm now wondering if I should rip apart the front seam and reglue it so the bottom is misaligned too. The difference is about 10mm. Do you think I should redo it? Or will it be ok as I have it since it will be covered up. I wrapped the battery pack around the bottom & it looks like the alignment will not affect the end result..

I've been able to make some progress on my build. Did a quick test fit for the torso and thighs today. The biceps and forearms do not have the strapping yet, but just slipped them on.

 

I'll post better pics later in the week with specifics for feedback on edges, details etc.

I think the thighs look fine and the armour looks like a great fit too!

Fine if you don't want to walk, can you see the over and under lap, you need to be able to move

Yea it did feel tight along the back. I was wondering about how much space is good between the thighs and the torso.

 

It felt good on front along the top and at the knees, but the back was clashing.

 

Lowering them a little sounds good. It was awkward to walk heh. My wife said I looked like a constipated trooper. O.o

LOL some imperial laxatives may be needed. It really depends on your height as too how high the thighs sit but you really need a little room on the back, you can rotate the front a little too to if you wish.

I see what you mean.

 

I think the RS kidney plate is an inch or so longer then most other armour's making the butt plate an inch or so lower and giving you a bit of trouble.

 

Try not to lower thighs much as it will expose your groin area and could coarse trouble behind your knees .

Thanks : )

One question / comment, the hooks on the shins are very frustrating to unhook.. Is that typical? Should I widen the holes to help or will that cause them to pop out more easily?

 

I had an easier time with hooks like that in High School.. /wink ;)

I never unhook my shins. I just slide my foot in and out and let the elastic stretch as I do it. But I have slim legs and feet. So it might not work for you.
