Thanks for confirming. Sorry to derail thread. A final point on chest armor: The DVV chest only is about 23" along top width. Don Post/Eller photos against brick wall looks to be about 21" wide but that is a really rough estimate based on standard brick dimensions and perspective. So I guess the DVV and probably yours are not undersized. Sorry again.

No need for sorry! I was very curious DVV armor and it looks pretty darn good from this photo! In your post here you are saying they estimate at different sizes but I'd bet they are the same. The DVV photo here looks like a great line up along its left shoulder too but accurate on the right as well. All very good.

I will measure at some point. And I hope to mold it at some point too but that will be months out at the soonest. (it took me over a year to just get it scanned even though the "scanners" were ready to go)

Maybe a new thread can start up as soon as I get more particulars posted and measure it up. One of the main things is to measure its distances front to back.

A little update. Haven't done much since I've been suffering from a stomach infection. Hasn't been a great couple of weeks. In the last few days I've been feeling better and started working on the scans again. I'll probably run the face mask through the fuse again as I may have set the resolution a bit lower than I would have been able to fuse it, so I'll take another stab at it. I also worked on the old print models, trying to fix them, and I think it turned out pretty great. Will need to run the ESB through the fuse again to see if I can get it just a bit better, so I won't be showing that off. Due to the new fuse I was able to set the mouth grill deeper in the mouth - more accurate - than I was able to do before, so that's a plus. Had to go back to the original grill models as I had butchered the ones I fixed previously and it was easier to start from scratch rather than trying to fix the mistakes I made.

First off is the DJ armor and helmet scans.

And next is the v2 ANH print model fixed and looking nice. :)
