UPDATE with more photos!


















Abdomen Detail:



Action Shot:



Fairly good neck seal and shoulder strap:




There are some things I noticed -

Need to trim the threads off the belt

Belt sitting a tad too low in the center

Forgot to paint the bracket screws on bottom of chest

Need to tighten up the belt - thighs now look a little low. The right one feels like it might need more trimming.

Chest looks wide, but I'm not sure it is, since it seems to conform to the ab, and the ab fits me well.

A dot of Velcro *should* do the trick on the belt, & I touched up the screws/rivets with white paint. I trimmed the right thigh a bit, and cinching up the garter should hold them a little higher.


But the shoulder bells bother me the way they match with the chest plate. Either I can avoid holding my arms so close to my body, or trim. But should I trim the bells, or the chest? If the chest, where? Or more importantly, where DON'T I trim?

Nice build, a couple of things you could tweak


Brow trim is a little wonky, looks like you have a tube tripe or tape under the front edge of the ear, teeth paint is a little wide

Traps lines are a little wobbly

Could trim your smaller ab plate a little, appears you over trimmed then applied a new plate for the larger ab plate, perhaps try to get rid of the join, abs paste or silicon.

Wouldn't hurt to bring your arms out a little for photos, they do appear tucked in. I wouldn't trim the bells until you troop and see what catches and how much movement you have.


Just note you do help your GML's job if you submit full length images using a blank backround / all same color ;) 



Remember these are just suggestions and ultimately the decision is up to your GML

gmrhodes, Thank you for the input! I redid the stripes, and they're a little better. I can't paint a straight line to save my life! Redid the brow a bit, and removed the offending wire tip poking out from the ear. Also took the paint down on the teeth:





I also reworked the ab plates:
