    Re: Lt Thire

    I like it
    Just to mention few things:
    - I think you need straps for knees and elbows
    - not sure if blue light is the one you seek :P red is more typical for ep.2 clones
    - the armor seems bit big for you- you use much padding for it.
    - no black visible in boot area !

    I guess other may catch some more details, but here are the one that I noticed.

    i know the armour seems a bit big this has been my first build. the thighs have been a nitemare to mould round me as the whole thing came in kit form plus i found this is really a two man job. as for the light i'm gonna get some red film to put over the top.
    as so padding as I have a small frame all armour unfortunitly seems a little big om me. lol
    but thire is still a work in progress and is great to troop in

    Yes, having someone to help is definitely good thing, especially when you need to fit these nasty things like thighs or forearms. And I think all sets come as a kit, to "buld yourself"

    As for light... You might want to buy some rear bike light (with leds), as mixing blue and red will give some strange color (def. not red).
    When I checked the photos I noticed that you are really slim, so I guess it was not easy to make it fit

    Good luck and keep us posted if there is any update. Still some things to improve, but as I said earlier- I like it.

    PS which armor maker it is ? My guess is Atin, but may be wrong

    I haven't built my clone yet,buit my mando though(been busy and life things) but I thin k you did a great job on your own.Yea having a buddy works great but sometimes you just don;t have an option.I to am slim and see me having the same issues your having. The only thing that sticks out the most for me is your helmet.It looks really large on you. There might not be anything that can be done but thats my two cents.

    i got it from one of the guys on galactic knights boards Clone 9 (rik) it is a great kit but with a few problems like i had to screw the belt to the abdo
    so it would fit and i need to change the thighs at some point as they are still a little big it is a never ending job lol
