Just submitted the form, I mostly need a real flightsuit (and the code cylinders and com on the arm) and flak vest. I think I have everything else.

Incidentally, this means I have an old resin commpad that I will not be using. It's a little small for my arm (pretty steep curve on the base part for someone my size). It'll be cheap, if someone wants to buy it from me.


Iíve started a new document in the Google Drive Folder for extra parts that people have available, listed your resin commpad there. Hopefully thatíll make it easy for folks to connect on items and things wonít get lost in the thread!

Excellent! Iíll add you to the list of 3D printers!
Yes, WampaWear should be a good source for the flightsuit, an alternative Iím aware of is Pilot Bay. For the flak vests, you can also check with Pilot Bay or I understand that Darth Hair also sells them.
If anyone else knows of any other vendor options, please feel free to chime in!

The flightsuit and flak vest are what weíre starting with, so youíre in good company! Iíve added your harness to the list of extra pieces available!

Considering the fact that we have a local 501st guy who has been getting the runaround since May about a TIE kit, Iím definitely stay far away from PilotBay.

Oh dear. Sad

I'll see what other info I can find out about potential flak vest vendors. If you contact Darth Hair about it let me know how that goes!

Can I modify this flak jacket to meet standards? This is what I have currently and want to know if its worth spending the time changing it.

Just at a quick glance, it would require a lot of modding to meet the standards (for example: the section of narrower ribs should actually be flat with horizontal stitching detail). I'm also afraid that the judges would have a problem with the fabric type, I believe the one for sale on Amazon is cotton, correct?
Requirements are for ballistic nylon or similar.

My best recommendation would be to go into the Pilot section of the forums and ask if anyone has successfully modded that flak vest for approval before, and/or if anyone has any recommendations.

Welcome aboard!

All:
darthhair and his wife do flak vests, so you can reach out to him via pm if you're still looking for a flak vest vendor.

Joy will also be providing information on the vendor she got a flak vest from when she gets a chance.

For local folks, I should be able to help out with making the leg flare holders for dirt cheap. I believe that all I need is the top measurement around your boot (so it fits) and preferably, one of your flares because then I can make sure the loops are as tight as possible. (No but seriously... happy to help here. The 25 yard spool for the olive was cheaper than the 10 yard spool so I'm going to have like 24 yards more than I actually need.)
