  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
  13. Good luck, hope you have some number soon Buena suerte, espero que tengas algún número pronto
  14. Definitely add some velcro to any padding, just had a 35 deg C troop and my padding was soaked, nothing worse that putting on a sweaty helmet and feel the squish of the foam Looking good
  15. Hello and welcome aboard, AM would be a better bet for a larger stomach, you may still need to add some shims to the sides but there are lots of great build threads on how to do that. Good luck with the research and look forwards to seeing some BBB images soon (big brown box)
  16. Going off the images doesn't look too bad, really a matter of adjustment and strapping but larger photos would definitely help
  17. Nice work, the only pieces which wouldn't get any weathering would be the T-tracks and handle grips as they where both originally black plastic
  18. Realistically it depends how much color difference there is, I know just recently comparing an ATA armor and RS armor and there was a massive difference in color. I purchased a grappling box from TM years ago and again big difference to ATA. There doesn't appear to be much color difference here, or at least it's not showing in the image Normally mixing a helmet to another make of armor isn't really an issue as it's separate but when you go adding pieces like a belt or arm/leg piece you can notice.
  19. It's a bit too cream, just go black then, you can always clean up after with toothpicks
  20. Also using tape can help push down troublesome areas. Push down firmly so the sides squash a little then apply the tape
  21. Yes use white wherever you want to stop bleed through as it won't be noticed on the white helmet. BUT if you paint the black outline first it is easier to then paint the grey on to the black, you get much straighter lines doing it this way as your not trying to paint thin black lines.
  22. Not that hard just fall over into a muddy puddle
