    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

    First pass at weathering, not horrible. Needs a little cleaning up, then another pass with the "oily grime" layer.

    Sleepy Llamas thigh problem

    Thank you. I used a ABS and acetone paste. I didn’t paint it but I did sand and polish it. A lot of sanding. Just finished up a first pass of weathering. More Pics to follow.

    Reposting here from my build thread for visibility. Here is a picture of disaster of a thigh. I measured and taped and did it again. I still managed to mess it up, the question is how bad. So the situation is I trimmed for width, then trimmed for length. As I did that I made them too tight. By a decent amount. I opened up the front as much as I could and added a shim which leaves me here. Any thoughts on if this is approvable? Any fixes? My plan is to try to source a replacement set of thighs at some point, but I would like to get this done soon. Thank you for looking Steve

    Been a while since I updated this. My Family was impacted by the Camp Fire in Paradise CA. My Mom and Sister lost their home in Magalia and my Grandma was trapped in her home. She has been tentatively identified , but we are still waiting for DNA confirmation. Needless to say I haven't done a lot of 501st related things lately. My Grandma has always been a fan of sci fi and the Star Wars universe. I think she would be proud that I finally finished this project. Anyhoo here is a picture of disaster of a thigh.

    Getting the final parts done. I've been afraid to start cutting on my thighs, so here goes nothing. Pic of the first test fitting/taping. Thanks for any input. Steve
