    Looking absolutely superb there Red - I am seriously jealous.

    As for the chest plans - I build my Ceta this week and will post some pics - if all goes well (and it should) I'll pm you with the plans before public release :thumb:

    Don't want to stop the momentum on this :cool:

    Regards

    Paul.

    I like it :thumb: - tighten it up a little, scan it in, and I'll take it :mrgreen: might re-size a little but would need to have it built to gauge it properly (no real dimensions to hand for this stuff - all just photo ref.).

    Cylon Chest Peices.

    Okay - almost done, just a few minor tweaks and then just the instructions :thumb:

    Phew - that was one serious PITA.

    Also build not as tight as I would have liked -wanted to try the hot glue gun, but got a Low Temp Glue Gun by accident :rolleyes: Not recommended.

    Yeah, the low temp glue guns won't cut it... lol.

    Sorry for the delay in building, been swamped with work and whatnot. Looks great, Jo!

    Hi Guys - Just a quick update.

    Done the tweaks to the kit, but am not entirely happy with the grille aperture or the grille itself. In addition I might try one a slightly different approach to the front corners.

    Pretty happy with the general breastplate itself - it also looks more accurate when it's on and is contoured to the shape of the chest.

    Just crazy ATM with other priorities so it might be end of April or later before I can get the next Ceta out - that said, if you're in a rush Red/Ekuth your welcome to have a copy of the currents plans as-is. Just let me know.

    Best Regards

    Paul.

    Glad you're back online Red and glad you got the lighting worked out. OK, now send me the suit and I'll cast it up and we'll make millions selling them online! :mrgreen::thumb::cool:
