    Boots won't fit under armor

    I just wanted to update what I had written earlier -- imperial boots next wave actually starts this Friday 12 Oct.

    Boots won't fit under armor

    Imperial boots is another option, but they only do monthly runs. The next run should open around the start of November.

    Request 501st or Sandtrooper Section Access

    Hey everyone! I received 501st sandtrooper access back in July. However, when I was recently filling out the legion census, I noticed that MEPD wasn't listed as a detachment affiliation in my profile. Can this be updated, please? Thank you!

    Thanks for taking a look, Hausi! Of the two adjustments you mentioned, adjusting the chest armor is a lot easier, so I'll get working on that first. Shouldn't be too bad, might need to punch some new button holes in the elastic though.

    Weekend progress. Any notes before I start weathering? (I know I still have to put the cover pieces on the belt and the ab armor )

    And here's some proposed trimming highlights...um excuse the crotch photo hah. Looks like my butt plate is riding up b/c the back of the thighs are too tall

    Alright some updated photos. Sorry about the selfie style shots. No one else is home right now. Took the tops of the legs down about an inch. Tried to stay along the original molded edge, but that may not be needed after I trim more so that I can actually walk. Didn't like the annoying fraying on my belt, so I swapped in a new one. Thoughts and feedback?

    Thanks Charlie. Yeah I saw that thread from the other week. I'm still trimming and adjusting things. Working on the tops of the thighs right now. I will probably have a progress photo later today.

    Sooo yeah. It's been a while putting this thing together. I've been dormant, but not entirely asleep. Here's where I'm at -- feedback and guidance is appreciated Obviously the tops of the thighs need to be trimmed and I've just got them taped on, so they're wonkily rotated a bit in the back. I also haven't attached the crotch strap yet, so some parts are just flopping around. I assume I should start by just taking the top edge down an inch and see how that fits? Is there a standard for how much gap there can be between the ab armor and the thigh? Now, I'm not a big person, so the chest plate seems huge on me. I can try re-shaping it a bit with hot water/heat if you think that's a good idea. The biggest issue for me is the kidney armor/ab armor overlap. It's about 3/4" and covers the part the extends on the kidney, above the L-shaped cut-out. Where am I allowed to trim on the sides of the ab armor/kidney armor? Here's a detail shot: Thanks for all of your assistance.
