Another kit up today... No eye black unfortunately, as I have a bit of an eye infection :(
But i’ve included a lid-off kit from the other day..

What do you think?

Just a few points. They might say that there’s to much brown on the forehead. Not sure about the toes. Also not sure your arms are the right mix, from the back the brown looks a little short it’s normally more a 50/50 split with the grey but the judges will let you know and I’d try and avoid the “stilt bump” where the pouch pulls the suit into the leg. For submission you don’t need one to show the mouth opening or one with the arms up. If you’re happy to go for submission you’ll need one full length pic for each of the following front/back/left/right, then one with mask off so they can see its you. You’ll need close ups of the mask/bandolier/pouch/toes and finally an action pose for your profile after clearance. You have most of those already but will need the close ups. Regards Paul.

Just got a lovely email to say i’ve been cleared!

Over the moon with that, so huge thanks to Paul Smith, without whom i’d never have even started this build and answered all my questions and PMs without fail. And Dave Gilmore, whose WIP I studied endlessly and I pestered for advice. And anyone else who contributed!

Awesome :)
