I finally got the modular pieces connected. Since I lost 10 lbs last year building my previous N7 armor, and 5 more lbs during the convention wearing it, the old armor started to slide down a lot and I kept having to pull pieces up. It was built for a bigger me, but I didn't expect to slim down as quickly as I did.
This new version is modular and can easily be resized without having to destroy the costume. Hopefully no more droppy pants McShepard this year.
In my original design I used lots of glue and plastic screws, but this year I am using metal screws to hold it together with very little glue used. I also used less styrene, and so far, weighs about 10 lbs less.

Thanks Shepard. Not only will it look cool, but hopefully feel cool if I can just figure out where to install these 80mm fans. Though it's looking like I have to buy smaller fans. (For some reason the smaller ones cost more!)
