But are you sure about the bottom of the chest? It seems like a Hero thing to me, and Stunt should have the return edge.

 

There are no requirements for a return edge on the bottom of the chest for Stunt or Hero.  In a lot of areas they add a thicker look to the armor, but in others they can be impractical and/or downright uncomfortable!  If you take a look at the screen used armor, (pics below) there are a LOT of places where it was removed completely, (shoulder bells, biceps, tops of the thighs, wrists, forearm openings, sides of the chest/back pieces), etc.  A few folks who have needed to cut them down significantly for sizing purposes have actually recreated them using a heat sealing iron for that thicker look, but to be honest it is a LOT of work.  Plus, heat sealing irons can destroy a perfectly good piece of armor very quickly if you are not adept at using one, so I for one say leave them off.  The tops/bottoms of the kidney, top of the posterior, tops of the calves and bottom of the thighs should be kept on, though (even if minimally) for the thicker look.

Wow. Great pictures. Gotcha! Thank you again! :)

 

Ok. Every time I take a picture the button panel seems to grow a cm. It looks well within the raised are from here, though! What say, all? Trim it down more? I know people sometimes get snagged for this on EIB apps.

I'm sure one of the DO team will chime in on this, but I think it looks good. Perhaps round off the edges just a bit, but I'll defer to those that make call on the higher levels.

Not edges. Corners, they're called corners.

Man, I'm beginning to not know what to do without your quick replies, Rat! :P

Cool. Rounding corners is easy enough. Seems to me the old suits had real sharp edges though. I mean, look at Luke's suit here.

And his button plate is cut pretty much to the raised part! Argh.

Hahahaha! Yeah I keep strange hours. Yeah the hard edges can be softened with some fine grit sandpaper, but I don't think it matters for the button plates. The only thing that I can say here is that you don't want too much extra on them. It really comes down to your GML and the DO team there. Like I said though it seems good to go.

Just remember Luke and Han's suits are deemed HERO versions so some characteristics on those may not fit a STUNT version ;)
