  1. Coming along nicely, be aware that the R1 CRL underwent an update just recently so make sure you take a look https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_rogue_one

  3. Nice work, the shins aren't quite closed/level. You drop box elastic may be a little too tight as the thighs are pushing them out. May want to add some foam behind your shin sniper plate to help push away from the thighs, could catch otherwise Shoulder bells could come in a bit more at the top, there is a bit of a gap there. Just watch spacing on your arms, forearm touching handplate on one, elbow gap larger on one arm.
  4. There is no actual thickness listed, just a matter of using the reference images
  5. Great news, with commissions sometimes you have to adjust some strapping so it really depends on how it fits you. Do you have gloves? Looking forward to seeing you suited up.
  6. I added a few dabs of E6000 on a couple of areas which touch, sides and at the front, stops it moving nicely Looks like you are a tad low on your rivet though, should be ok for basic but may hold you up for higher levels
  7. Not sure if I mentioned it before but make sure you rough up the areas with course sandpaper especially where you want the glue to grip or it's under any strain Came out great, nice work.
  8. I normally glue the cover strip on, wait until it's completely dry @48 hours, then I use a scrap piece of ABS plastic for behind the ridge, glue and clamp tightly, usually the ridges will come together, again leave it well to dry. A little bit of force is sometimes needed
  9. Just one thing before deciding which armor you will use for a Sandie, a question, which one do you think you will troop in more, I ask as my first ATA lasted 7 years and @200 troops, ATA is pretty thick and doesn't seem to crack like other armor (RS is the worst), I've seen quite a few threads on Anovos armor and cracks appearing, so perhaps have a think about that. Incidentally my old ATA was turned into a Sandie only because of a build up of scratches over the years, it's still going strong
  10. This is another great thread to help you with your journey, good luck
  11. Belt does stand out a lot more. ATA is generally a little creamer than Anovos, yet put ATA next to RS and it's the RS that's even creamer. It's the reason we try to advise people not to mix replacement parts can look great with some mixes but can stand out with others. I'd say if you were going to mix anything you could get away with a helmet mix to armor but I wouldn't mix a prominent piece that's right in your face like a belt
  12. Not long now, looking forward to seeing the BBB photos and first suit up
