What do you guys think of this? Don't quote me - but I believe it was modified based off suggestions of the RL.

The suit looks a little bit better but it's still not there. The leg pockets aren't right still, especially the upper right leg pockets, and the straps on the legs are way off. I'm iffy on the sleeve ribbing, too, it looks too puffy, but the ribbing would probably pass. Not sure why they quilted the butt, and with a different fabric at that... Looks like a diaper. The color of the suit also looks too bright. The collar isn't right, either, it should have the same ribbed material as the sleeves. It's also missing the adjustment strap on the back and the chestbox clip sleeve on the front.

While the suit looks a bit better and might be a little bit easier to fix up it would still require a fair bit of work.

The vest, on the other hand, is no where close to what it should be. Not to mention that ejection harness... Eesh.

On a positive note the chestbox looks passable if it was given a better paint job and had the straps removed and strap slots filled in. And had a green LED added to it.
