Very good looking kit.

2 things stuck out to me. 1, your blue bottle on the pack attached to the siphon looks really long, you might need to change it to something more accurate. 2, are your helmets stripes decals? They look very uniform, so make sure they are hand painted.

Other than that you have a really nice submission.

I agree with LoveMonkey, the bottom bottle is too long.

Hi Bradley,

good looking kit and your DLT looks ace as well. :)

I think the codpiece should rather have a rivet instead of a snap and you might also want to consider removing the rivet from the right side of your ab plate (the one right beside the snap)

I'm also not sure if the canvas pouch on your belt is approvable but might be wrong there, maybe that was only for SWAT. 

Good luck with your review!

Thanks gang. The bottle is long. I'm having trouble locating a short one. I can probably alter the long one. They are decals. I hand painted everything else. I guess I missed that in the crl.

I used a children vitamin bottle

The other goto for bottles is a computer monitor wipe tub, which seem to be a very similar size the world over from the threads I've seen on here.

Our local office supplies retailer has them here, not sure who the equivalent is over there?

You can use a computer monitor wipe bottle from Staples or even a large vitamin bottle.

Hi Bradley,

Great looking kit you have there. Other troops have pointed out some minor improvements and considering the pouch you're wearing on your belt, it needs to be black.

Your pack needs a white dial as well, but that's also an improvement. It won't be a show stopper..

And the filter, have you already tried to add more "ribbing" to it to make it look more like the real deal. Also the space between your upper trays and lower trays is too big. If you can fix that you'll have an awesome pack.

Here you can see what I mean :)

And good luck with your deployment!! :duim:

I removed the weird rogue rivet and filled hole with abs paste.  I painted the pouches to make them darker.  Someone mentioned they might be too light.

That is a male snap on the ab.  Do I need a different one?

Also, I am unclear on the visible "bracket strap" system under the cod.  I didn't see that on the crl for PO.  So i just need to replace the snap with a rivet?

Thank you sir.

Ok I think this is the last fix.  Replaced snap on cod piece with a split rivet.

Are these pics visible to everyone?  I'm still trying to see what's going on with photobucket.
