Reach armor set

Had a decent amount of time to myself over the course of five weeks, and my job has me sitting around for eight hours at a time in a well ventilated area fixing machines that rarely break, so I had a lot of time to power through this. I'd say this has been worked on for about two months, give or take a week or so.

I think other than a few fixes it's about done. There were a few more lights, but we didn't turn them on (one failed, and without the symmetry it looked silly).

It's all pep and fiberglass/rondo, so mobility is practically nothing. Regretting not doing more out of foam, there's a few places that are structurally weak- if I could go back, I would've hardened more with fiberglass as opposed to rondo. This is my second armor set overall.
Since the photos were taken, I took off the annoying shoulder bits- the biceps seem a bit small, but that may just be me. I really don't know.

I feel no one has criticized this for its shortcomings. I have found a few and remedied them.
Here's some in between progress shots.

Belt is now one solid piece, and rides higher.

Assault rifle has muzzle brake, gas block, ammo counter and rackable charging handle.

My handplates are backwards. Now, they are not.

Gaps in the shoulder were, after this, filled with CQB and Recon plates.

My hair is really nice
