Buckle has been added to the belt armor. I had to adjust sizing to make it sit perfectly in the center for the Thermal Detonator to clip on correctly.
Next up is to strap the drop boxes and the clips correctly. This gets a little tricky as I had to wear the soft armor to make sure everything lines up correctly.
According to the CRL, the drop boxes had to sit just above arm’s length. The clips did not need to be fully functional. Strapping across them will give the illusion that the clips are functioning.
I ran the strapping through and pinned the locations where the straps would later be sewn or fastened when the final measurements were made.
Finished the mock up with test fitting to make sure everything lines up correctly. (with out chest armor)
How it looks with chest armor
Next up, finalizing belt armor and starting the chest armor strapping!
