Jaster's Republic Commando Project

I have started to post up a little bit of progress on my RC build, changed gears to Boss, Delta 038. Here's a pic of my neckseal, which was made by Darkspectre. I picked up my pistols and my DC-17m this weekend and am still waiting on my armor to show up.

Sweet dude! Looking forward to putting the squad together. Any ideas on the Cushmans now that you have them in hand? I am still staring at it like an old cow looking at a new gate. I haven't heard from Chris yet on a ship date, and I am still waiting to hear back from PA, have you had any progress reports from them? Don't let your beard get tangled in your neck seal...lol!

Ok, sorry for the slow responses, been working on the Cushmans and waiting for some parts to arrive. I'll be posting pics this weekend of the Cushman builds.

Well, looks like I never got around to posting pics of the Cushmans (putting electronics into them currently) :D . I finally got the email I've been waiting a o long time for yesterday. MY armor kit is pulled and ready to ship. I kind of feel like a kid at Christmas. I will be sure to post pics of everything when I get a little more progress on my end.

After test fitting a few pieces to myself, I've found that anyone under 230 lbs and 6 feet tall with any shoulder width under 50" is going to have a lot of trimming to do to one of these kits. Turns out that I don't have to really trim or shim anything on the kit. I'm finally a truly canon character, lol.

Soon, I need to talk to Steve about that speaker he used for his TK. I want to put a sound system in the backpack.

Duck said gander, lol .....

Actually, the goal is to have it done for MC3, but I'd love to have it done and approved before then. I need to figure out a few odds and ends with a few things, but it will go pretty easy.
