Does anyone know if the buckles on the back of the shoulder straps are the same as the ones on the front?
Yeah they do look similar, I have found a few low quality pics with back buckles but you can't really see it that well. The ones with the backpack do look like they have a smaller extra loop. Thanks for the reference pics.View attachment 277888 View attachment 277889
They look the same to me given a limited set of images for ODST backs. If they're not the same, I'd say they're at least close enough to use the same buckle style for both front and back.
The part that might to be different is, in the back photo, there appears to be another loop(?) bit at the bottom. I'd have to find more reference photos of an ODST's back, preferably without the backpack (I actually don't have any of those atm). It may also be that the style I'm seeing on the backpack is different than the one's that go on the actual armor shoulder straps.
Anyone have a good reference photo of the back without a backpack?
Side note: The longer I look at that back photo the more assumptions I had disappear as false.
When I was in the initial planning I was going to make it functional like the butt pack on my Mollie, but then I decided since I'm building with plastic and probably can't reach it anyway why bother.Ok I missed the text in this post but in my OPINION the buttplate was honestly the worst piece of armor I had to build. more so because with how small it was I thought it would be easy
