Big question; anyone think of a reason I can’t glue this, rather than rely on Velcro? I glued my ot tk arm’s stepping and have never had an issue taking them on or off or storing them inside the shins.

Thanks, I have a spare set of pouches if you don’t have one yet

Thanks Kenton, I really appreciate the offer. The Anovos armour is meant to come with pouches and I’m still holding out that it will ship eventually, so there may be another local trooper who could use these more than me? (If the anovos pouches are junk, or delays continue to the point where I eventually feel I have to jUmp suppliers I might try my luck and come back to you...). Thanks again.

Velcro added

Had to change the shoulder Velcro to be tabs. Lots of unpicking but it wasn’t quite long enough to use the Velcro on the sleeves.

I don’t have little arms but despite looking alright during construction the biceps feel a bit loose.

Also have to change the clips on the spats. I went with putting the snaps on top so I didn’t have to risk damaging the paint job but it looks a bit budget for my ocd levels.

Any reason as to why you didn`t end up gluing them?:)

Overwhelming response on Facebook, I can always go glue if I’m not happy with Velcro easier than the other way around.

Ahh gotcha! Thought that maybe you`ve gotten a PM or otherwise heard it wasn`t allowed for some reason - thanks:)

Because if you needed to repair something gluing them would make the repair process that much more involved. 2 cents

Getting closer to the exciting end of the build, and looking very good there Kenton, keep up the great work.

Beautiful.

 

Helpful suggestions: The cod could be trimmed down a bit and the leading edge of the thigh should cross the center of the thigh (though not sure there's much you can do about it without major work)

Thanks. First time I saw how big it was was in these photos. I have actually already chopped some of the top off, so now it will hopefully look better. Haven’t worn the new cod yet as this is harder to put on than ottk, but it looks more like the screen used hanging on a hanger now

Of course now I see the thighs need to rotate in a bit. Just a matter of sliding then on the belt. Have to train the wife better to spot stuff before taking photos

Best photo, but part of the front yoke popped out
