Looks better Garrett and glad I could help. Shoot me a message through FB if you have any questions.

...the hand plates kept slipping down. I’m thinking either Velcro or magnets to keep them in place on the back of the gloves...

 

 

Very good job Garrett...I'm enjoying your build...

And what about flexible hand guards? You will need them for centurion:laugh1:...

Thank you kindly! It’s been a fun learning experience, but I’m pretty eager to have it done so I can troop with it (even if it’s just walking around the neighborhood!).

 

Re: hand guards: No flexible for ESB :P

Haven’t got as much done this month as I was hoping. Health has limited me to 3-4 hours per week, but it’s better than nothing!

 

Got the thighs and shins in progress, and I’m measuring them up to final trim and assemble using the dimensions from the RS suit as a starting point.
 

How does this look size wise?

Note: shins will be a little low due to lack of boots.

 

I think the thighs are maybe a tiny bit too large at the top, and I definitely need to cut out the backs a little. Shins might be a tiny bit too large, but it’s hard to tell with the overlap since I haven’t trimmed the back at all yet.

 

Also, as you might have noticed, got the belt nearly done with help from my wife. Just needs a dab of glue to keep the drop box straps in place:

And, puppy (helmet is my wife’s btw)
