Lookin' Sharp buddy!
Maybe its just the angle of this shot, but it looks like your lower LED on your chest slid outta place and is off center. (Unless that's the way it is meant to be - I'm not an ESB pro)

Best of luck though!

No, you’re correct — it did slide, but I fixed it afterwards. I just used tape in case I ever need to replace the board, but clearly I needed to add some more!

Ah! Very good then! I used Hot Glue to get mine in place, and two years later.....still no issues!

I just did layer upon layer, takes a bit but it thus far hasn't moved an inch!

Well it’s been a long journey, but today my application to the 501st was approved, and going forward I will be known as BH-53211!

So many people have been so selfless and generous with help and advice, and I sincerely hope to be able to pay it forward.

I want to give extra thanks to BH-51512 and Chris Stallard, both of whom went above and beyond assisting me with revisions. I can’t thank them enough and would give them both my highest recommendation.

And of course I want to thank my GML, starsaber25, who was so patient and supportive throughout this process.

That’s all for now. At some point soon I think I might like to put together a post-mortem to fill in any gaps in the story in this thread. In the meantime I’d be happy to answer any questions.

And now to find my first troop…
 
Congratulations! Hope to see you trooping soon! Steve is also my GML, he's currently reviewing my ROTJ Build for approval. Hopefully one day I can check your kit out in person an in action!

Good luck! Don't expect to make it through on your first try. Fett is absolutely the most challenging costume to get approved, but with the right attitude it's absolutely worth the effort!

Hooray! So happy it finally happened - welcome to the legion!

Prepare for something to break or not fit right on your first troop. Happens to everyone.
