If this patch is the sign of things to come, I'm feeling nervous. I was never going to use his patch as I was always certain I'd end up using other patches, but if the patches aren't going to be a close replica, what does that bode for the flightsuit. Right now, I'm feeling anxious that I have dropped almost $600.

Just serves to remind, that runs should not be financed until a realtive prototype has been provided. I bought blindly on this because I was so hopeful of finally having these suits happen....let's just hope I don't regret it.
The patches are not an indicator of what the suits will be. The research and development going into these is for the flight suit itself. The patches are an afterthought, I guarantee. Honestly, I'd prefer they weren't included in the first place.
Unfortunately in my opinion, the patches are not afterthought and for someone with no experiece of this seller, the patch is the first output of his proposed offering we have seen....And at this moment in time, I'm not impressed. I myself would have preferred if he didn't include them and focused on the suits.

Until we see the suits, we have no idea what the quality will be like and what the attention to detail of them are. All we have to judge him on right now is his patches and they are not a convincing product.

I hope to be proven wrong and the suits are amazing....But if he can't be bothered to get things right on the patch, who is to say that train of thought won't be present in the suits....And who can blame an investor (at this moment in time, people who have pre ordered or investors in this project) for having concerns based on initial progress.

Magnoli appears to be using either my old nametag font, or a similar one, the G should be thinner, with a bit of a stroke/serif to the right of the shorter vertical stroke on the right-hand-side of the letter, the cross-bar on the A should be lower, and the ends of the letters should be flat, rather than rounded (which is one of the suggestions it's my old font).

(You can just make out the configuration of the G in this screenshot, despite the continuity-error marshmallow staining):

You learn something new everyday. I always assumed all the white marks on them was the production team trying to simulate dry wall dust or something to that effect. It makes sense that they would be dirty from trying to navigate through a destroyed apartment complex and undoubtedly running up against things. Never dawned on me that it was just a continuity thing :lol:

We have the first good look at the prototype.
Apparently the leg hose connecter will be a different colour and the zippers will be bright brass as this was asked before.

It's 5am here so I'm a bit bleary eyed.
I'm sure others will notice things that I haven't.

The width of the velcro on the cuffs has also been pointed out over on the rpf.

Here's the latest for those who don't frequent the rpf.

The antique brass zippers were added after Indy used reference if a screen used suit in its current condition.
Now that they've seen the suits as they were at time of production with polished brass zippers, these will now be added to the production suits.

The cuff velcro is going to be rectified.

And the side pockets will be there.
After a bit on uncertainty whether these were actually pockets or just side entry, a pic of ZedR's screen used Stantz suit was provided to show that they are indeed pockets and not just side entry so those will be added as pockets to the suits, too.
