I have ordered the IDF Vest aswell just waiting on it to arrive. I have some old 58 pattern webbing aswell from my cadet days so will be using some of that.

Not decided on headgear yet, probably Be the helmet but still looking for a reasonable priced one

Boots and gaiters match colour, you've a roll pin for the belt, and the trousers should be OK.

The thought that occurred to me is the jacket. The standards - http://newsite.rebellegion.com/rebel-marine-scarif/ mention the stripes on the sleeves for the flak vest variant should be tan and the jacket coloured thus.
Standards wrote:Zip-up canvas jacket in khaki, brown, or dark blue with military style stand collar.
Tan stripes may not be visible as the jacket itself looks tan and not one of the listed colours so it may need a dye bath to darken it.
Happiness is a warm A280. Or A300. Even a Glie-44 at a pinch.

Been working away slowly on the vest modifications. Only got the area left to modify for the rebel transponder and I have to then dye and weather the vest after that.

Managed to get my 3D printer to cooperate long enough to make the rebel transponder. If I can get it to cooperate again I will make the helmet shield on it and purchase a M1 helmet (seen a few on Ebay)

Transponder looks a good print. Loads of references to show what the flak vest should look like too, in case you get stuck.

The jacket has some extra flaps, straps and ribbing that aren't explicit in the standard so it's untested ground. I'd be tempted to think about losing the more visible shoulder and collar straps. I couldn't predict if these would be flagged during clearance so they are a consideration as the vest and belt can hide stuff. Maybe the cuffs could be also tucked under the sleeve if they were felt they had to be masked.
