    Thank you! Now comes the struggle of figuring out how that's supposed to connect to my body.

    My Wolf Predator build has some useful info on backpack mounting.

    I shall give it a look-see. Hopefully it won't be a difficult task. I can't imagine it was harder than building this monster...

    This is the back plate I use to mount the backpack and medkit . The back pack and medkit slide over those hook in the back of the plate
    This video at around 10:50 show how I attach the straps for easy removal .

    I think on my YouTube channel i showed how I made it from a picture reference and added acrylic to be able to screw into a solid surface . Hope this gives you an idea on how to start .

    As for mounting it (weight depending) maybe have a look at rare earth magnets !

    Originally I was going to write this biomask off as a loss and scrap it...but now? I think I have something special. What do ya'll think?

    Is that weapon on the back right side of Ahab a staff or spear? Will you make that as well?

    It's a glaive/spear! I have it made already thankfully. It was one of my first pieces.

    Edit: I forgot to post this, but here is Ahab's belt/sash.

    Made of actual leather (I did the leather work myself) and foam belt buckle. Fur is realistic as well, but synthetic.

    I've officially taken this to a whole other level. I made a pouch that goes on my belt and conceals a portable speaker/subwoofer connected to my phone via bluetooth and gives me special effects!
