Nice work there, just a couple of things.

 

Just watch bunching with your undersuit, there a bulge coming out on your right side chest to arm gap.

 

Your boots look very grey compared to the armor, did you paint/dye yourself, if so I'd suggest going over with another coat.

 

Thigh cover strips should not go all the way to the bottom, should stop above the lower ridge, same on the back, stop above the lower ridge.

With the shins the coverstrips go all the way up on the shin fronts, but on the back they should stop below the top ridge.

Did you need the extra size on your cover strips for room? If not they are a little big.

 

You may want to try bringing up your ab plate a little more, would give you a bit more room at the top of the thighs, make it easier to move about. 

 

You trimmed the AB plate buttons a little too far, not sure if your GML will pick up on that.

Holster looks very wrinkly, I would perhaps look for a stiffer one, again it's up to your GML.

 

Drop boxes should align with the end of the plastic belt, a dab of E6000 can stop them moving ;) 

 

You could take a little more out of the corners of the teeth

I would try to clean up some of your tube stripes, tooth picks are great for getting rid of any excess, also ideally the correct fall is Back  ////////// Front, but again not an issue for basic approval

If you want to make your black stripes a little straighter you can go over them with a permanent black marker ;) 

 

You could also get rid of the extra fabric on the belt, they also normally go right side over left but not a biggy for base approval

Belt could come up a bit but again not a base requirement.

 

All in all nice work and good luck with approval.

Thanks. I realized as we were taking pictures that the cover strips were long. I did paint my own boots and am not happy with how they look, and have better paint already in stock. The thigh covers are wide so they match front and back( I have big legs from years of bike riding).

 

Drop boxes are were they belong I think I missed saying anything to my wife who took the pictures.

 

I have a spare set of ab buttons as I thought they might be a little thin on the sides.

 

Thanks so much for the input.

Q might be able to advise better but should the number of tube strips match each side i.e.14 and 14?

They don’t need to match but shouldn’t deviate to the point that it’s obvious that there are more stripes on one side:salute:

You can also have 9 to 16 per side, form the CRL:

 

Tube stripes are medium blue, numbering between 9 and 16 per side with the curve bends extending backwards

A little opinion for your right forearms , I think you can trim it a little more to make it looks fit better , although is not a mandatory for basic approval

I agree with the forearm  trimming. A lot of the parts are a little too long. I figured on leaving material as apposed to needing to add it back. I'll add it to my to do list. Thanks.

Best attitude, easier to trim off than to add back on. Many of us find once we start trooping that areas can catch, rub and cause "armor bits" but I'm sure you'll find that out in the not too distant future ;)
