    Llama's TD build

    So 4 troops down and I think I am really happy with how things are looking and wearing. I have my "move along" pack ordered and look forward to submitting for Police Officer. I would like to improve my helmet situation. It's difficult to get on because the tubes angle down and tend to ride on the chest armor. I can deal with the limited visibility but it's a pain to put the thing on. Anybody see anything that needs improvement ?

    return edge size for chest and ab plate.

    Hey Rob. I'm not positive on the return edge size, but I'd think 5-6 mm would be good. There is a great picture in the CRL thread in the PO section of the forum. Just measured screws in the kit I got from Trooper Bay, they are about 4 mm across. As for a backing plate I've heard people are using thin ABS strips and ABS paste to reenforce the return edge. Good luck with your replacement

    One of my favorite pics: I told you, that was the droid we were looking for.

    Well it’s official I am now TD12322. Now I need to go troop a few times and work on a pack for PO submission. Thank you everyone for your help and inspiration.

    Well I did it. Application to the Legion submitted, photos to the GML. Now we wait and look for droids in the sand.

    Sleepy Llamas thigh problem

    Quick test fit before final weathering. I'm happy with the thigh fix. And the back

    First time in the full kit. Felt nice. Still have a little weathering to do and a few tweaks. See anything that needs attention?

    Thank you everybody for the encouragement. Hoping to wrap this up soon and finally submit for approval.

    Sleepy Llamas thigh problem

    Spent some more time sanding, added a bit more putty, then more sanding. Hit it with a very ugly coat of gloss white. Pretty big improvement. Not pristine but enough.

    Thank You for the input, Hausi. Very appreciative. For now I'll be happy with basic, but PO is the goal. I have to do the same repair to do on the other leg. I'll practice my painting skills on that one. Steve
