Nice job. For a scratch-build those look pretty good. Though you forgot the panel line that's near the left edge of the chestbox. Smile

Yeah, that pattern looks pretty good. Nice job.

One thing, though, is that the shoulder straps of the front and back pieces are separate. The shoulder straps of the back piece are thinner than the front, and they're layered over the front shoulder straps where they're stitched down.

And the width of the straps seems a bit too wide as well. Wink

Glad you like 'em. Smile If you'd like the accurate Omron relay instead of that stand-in I sent I can forward you a picture. It's an Omron MY4z relay. The accurate one has "OMRON" painted on the top in big black letters but those are getting hard to find because I don't think that they're made anymore. There are more modern MY4z relays, though, that would probably work fine and they're the same size, they just don't have "OMRON" painted on the top and instead have it engraved on the plastic case. Ebay has lots of that type. You could, if you wanted, probably paint the letters black with a paint pen or something, or just leave it as-is.

Also, that rectangular greeblie with the two small rectangles I sent... isn't actually accurate, which I didn't realize until later. Instead of that being a greeblie the rectangle with the small blue rectangles is actually just painted directly onto the chestbox.

I sent you the greeblie that goes in the big circle at the top, didn't I? The greeblie that looks like two cylinders stacked on top of each other, one smaller than the other, and the bottom has some square cuts around the edge?

Ack, it wasn't with them? Crap, I must have forgot it. I thought I counted everything but I guess somehow I still missed it. I can send one out this weekend if you'd like. Though it might be a tight fit in the hole cut there, it looks like the greeblie might be a little bit bigger than that opening (but I can't say that for certain).

Sure thing. Would you like me to check the dimensions, make sure it'll fit?
