    Pictures look better! Just a curiosity about that deep bullet dent, I think that would have caused serious blunt force trauma to the abdomen, possibly the liver and probably incapacitating him, if not killing him. I also think that a armour with a dent that deep would be uncomfortable to wear. Sorry I apologize, no disrespect intended, just had to ask.

    Joe, you don't have to apologize. You asked perfectly sensible questions. And you're not the first. I cannot answer you about the medical point of view. You are surely more up to date in that quarter. I can only post a pic of the actual uniform that was used as reference. Maybe this can clear some doubts.

    thanks for supplying the pictures, I commented cause the dent in the bust looks a bit deep, maybe it is due to the light/camera effect. Anyway he would be lucky to be alive, had it not been there been a vest, most likely he would have been killed, especially considering the survivability rate during this time.

    Great job as usual, Steve! You came a long way.

    Pics are also good as others pointed out.

    I have to agree with J. Fenech. To me the bullet hole is too deep ... in fact, when I clicked on the post and the pictures came up I thought the hole was a position hole for some accessory still to be attached. Maybe the shadow is also enlarging the effect.

    Regards
    Noel

    Noel thanks. Yes I think that the hole is a tad deep but still, the shadow in it is enhancing the effect, in the wrong way I mean
