    Jan 13, 2013, 8:56 PM - My WIP #1

    Well I finally got up the testicular fortitude to start my WIP thread. I will be posting some pics within the next week due to me only working on it on the weekends(and not having too many parts). the bucket is almost done with the visor installed as well as the MQ-1. As soon as I get my rf light parts the rf will be done. The guants are almost done, just need to decide what to,do with the remote rf parts ( they need redone and I don't know if I want to spend the time making new circuits). As soon as my BM armor comes I will order my FS. I just hoping that they look good on me (I'm concerned with scale since I'm 6'4"), if they don't fit then I'll go with RKD armor. Anywho, I'll get pics up as soon as I can and I look forward to getting feedback and guidance since I have never done anything like this and I have no idea what I'm doing.

    Well DL, you had a backlog and Dom took my sideshow premium format HIC in trade. Too bad the USPS lost it, so I ended up paying him anyway.

    My sidearm and EE-3, there are the first props that I built and painted myself, so be kind lol. I'm pretty happy with them, even though there are some issues with them.

    3 Weeks Ago - May 1, 2015, 10:41 AM - Re: My WIP #19

    Ok, here is my first time wearing the full (minus a few things) suit. I forgot to attach the thrusters and missile before I had everything on, and the servo kit wasn't installed so the servo wire fell down out of the helmet. The jp waist belt is a bit crooked (I have the sidearm hanging from it) and I didn't see it until after the pic was taken. I am going to move the hole in the cape so the collar stud can be seen. I had to roll up the vest about 2 inches to get the spacing between the vest and the girth belt. I am more than likely going to have Carole alter the vest, she said she would (because she is awesome!). I have a new girth belt on the way so I can get better spacing in the back.
    Let me know what you think and be gentle lol.

    Looks good, Justin!

    I think one of the bigger things that sticks out for me is that the center diamond looks really small for some reason. Maybe it's the spacing? Are the shoulders too low?

    Aside from that I think it's pretty close. Maybe a little more weathering (I could always use a little more weathering...lol).

    The diamond is the correct size, it's the armor spacing. I had to try to even out the armor to try to take up more space on the vest. If I bring the armor closer together, there is way too much vest showing. I am at a disadvantage to smaller guys because I have way more space to take up with the armor on the vest than shorter guys. I posted the pic to my WIP 501st thread. I don't think I need too much more to do to the suit, at least I hope.

    Looks great man. A few tweaks needed here and there, but that's just normal stuff. Sounds like you're already on top of it. Short of buying larger armor, I don't really think you can do too much about the spacing.
  23. 3 Weeks Ago - May 1, 2015, 1:53 PM - Re: My WIP #23

    Having been a GML for 3yrs and my specialty being Fett....honestly the only thing im seeing that glares out at me is the space betwenn the bottom of your vest and the top of the ammo and girth belt is alot, likely due to your height. The best i could suggest would be see if you can have the girth and ammo belt sit higher on your body. The Ammo belt should sit over your belly button and the girth top should be behind it. The girth also should cover some of the Cod, but that may not work because of your height, but i think having the girth only slightly overlapping the cod or sitting on top of it would be less distracting than having so much space between the bottom of the vest and the top of the ammo and girth belts. If you can hike up the cod a bit, do that as well, just dont smash your junk lol.

    Another option would be removing your mid section :P

    Well removing my mid section isn't in the cards lol. I am trooping at a comic store tomorrow and I will try to make those changes and get some pics. The people helping me will have no idea howntonhelp me suit up so it may end up looking worse lol.
    Thanks for the feedback Lou, you da man.

    I can unfold my best to help fill the gap, but then I would have a lot of bare vest under the ab plate.

    Here is a pic from my first troop last Saturday. I broke off one of the toe spikes and the top off of the survival knife shin tool, but other than that the troop went pretty good. I was in the suit for 2.5 hours, and I wasn't really uncomfortable. The metal jp harness worked great, and having the fiberglass jp from fettseven helped too since its lighter than a resin one would be.
    I moved the girth belt so it sits on top of the cod piece and I pit the ammo belt on the top of the girth belt.
