    With strap outside it looks more tailored...

    Just open it on the frontside , it opens just like a belt ;)
    A few other adjustment that I have done to make him more "movie accurate" are :
    - pull out his shirt sleeves out of his coat
    - also his shirt colar should be under the coat (on my pics they are still on the outside)

    Congrats Karim!
    The hat is a bit small...? Or you dont adjust it yet?

    The hat is a a good size , and unless you like it high on the head which I don't , then don't be afraid to push down , it's a matter of adjusting beads and bandana , and sometimes it will want to go back up but by pushing and twisting it can be done. Don't worry about strapping neck off , it won't happen , the fiberglass with rod goes up the neck of the silicone head . So push with confidence

    Thanks the advice on the belt Karim.
    Just interested - what reference are you using for the belt being on the outside?
    The belt is on the inside of the prototype but that may not be movie accurate. I like the idea of keeping everything inside the coat but then it does hide the scabbard. But then the belt on the outside makes the jacket look more tailored.

    But... where's the chest?blockquote>
    It is pretty big Lars - I don;t have the space inside my case but it's very nice and would look great aside him.

    Well the belt is on the outside on almost all the movie reference pics that I can find.
