  1. Hello and welcome aboard, RS is molded from an original set of armor so is accurate in size and dimension. The average size of the actors in ANH was between 5'9" - 6 foot tall A great resource thread can be found here Good luck with the research and hope to see a build thread from you soon.
  2. Once you start strapping things will hold in place better, the shoulder bells look a little big in the front photo but if you check the back photo you have quite a lot of black showing, strapping should bring this in. If you do need to trim the bells the originals had a slight curve to them. A few references for sizing.
  3. Just make sure the fall of your tube stripes are from the top falling forward. Notice they shouldn't go over the crease line You may also want to look at the spacing of your stripes in the traps, the are a spaced a little differently
  4. You need to post a link to your 501st Legion membership profile, have a look at the other requests in this thread
  5. The only issue with trimming down the shins is you then bring the thigh down over the knee which could interfere with the knee bending.
  6. You may be able to bring your ab/cod up a bit, if you compare Luke and the gap between his chest and ab plate and yours. If not you should be able to trim the tops of thighs without much issue, although I would let the DO's comment whether they would be acceptable for higher level clearance as to shape/return edge, @justjoseph63, @TKSpartan, @Chemi Here's a couple of shorter trooper builds, from memory I think most have higher clearance, could be some reference material for you as to what they modified https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/38416-crickets-rs-stunt-build-for-the-vertically-challenged/ https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/38842-fragarocks-rs-stunt-build-not-to-scale/ https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/42868-sha-shas-wtf-anh-stunt-build-complete/
  7. Ridge around barrel, rear of Hengslter TFA ridge TLJ/TROS no ridge TFA Heavy ridge TROS Heavy ridge
  8. I don't know, I'm just pointing out the differences, whether they are included or not is up to yourself and the membership. I agree
  9. Endcap differnece TFA to TLJ/TROS Also TFA D ring black and mount is silver. TLJ/TROS D ring white and mount is white Endcap Clip difference TFA to TLJ/TROS (rounded on end on TFA, square on TLJ/TROS)
  10. You can also remove a touch from the inner curved area
  11. That's quite a fastidious approach but if it works for you go for it
  12. I'm a bit wary of buying off ebay, without hands on its hard to see any hidden issues like cracking or yellowing, personally I would just purchase new from from RS, start from fresh and know exactly what you have. There could also be an issue of the color not matching armor, they can yellow over time and even RS comment the plastics from one year can be a different shad to other years.
  13. Nice work. Could you also add a sniper plate image from the front, I'm sure the DO's will like one of those. When taking your photos just be aware of positioning of pieces, hard to do while wearing, having a mirror close by can help. Shoulder straps could come down a little at the back. Also your belt hoops are not quite straight. And drop box not quite aligned with end of the belt Good luck with approval
  14. A lot of work adding electronics into blasters not made for them, looks like you are winning the fight, nice work
  15. Looks like you have a few more issues with your helmet. Top trap decal not positioned correctly, too high and side gap, also cheek trap a little off angle Rear trap decal lifting and looks to have a large air bubble, or it may be the photo Brow trim should be cut straight or a slight angle Fall of tube stripes should be from top forward (a bit hard to see in your images), also a pencil width from cheeks, brow trim appears to be dipping in the center. Rim of mic tips should be white Also vocoder sides could match Paint should not be on gums Frown is painted gray and does not leave the teeth area. Ear paint reference Bottom ear screw doesn't look correct, not sure if it's painted either, hard to make out in image Thigh ammo strip too long Belt overhang could be trimmed. Shoulder straps are a little long, could trim off large tab. Back plate overlapping kidney Detonator too long Thigh cover strips should be straight, no gap in center of lower ridge also Holster mounted too far back Drop box elastic a little too long. Add some foam behind sniper knee plate to hold it away from thigh, at the moment it appears under the thigh Large ab plate looks to be on an angle Brow trim height is normally a little higher, the low brow is more a Hero look Shoulder bells could be brought in more towards the shoulder straps Looks like you have writing on the back of your undersuit which will have to be covered/removed or blackened Photos are a little grainy, there may be other items bit a little hard to make out, I'm viewing on phone as computer is having a meltdown, make sure you take high resolution images in a well lit area. A bit of a list but nothing too hard to rectify, good luck
  16. Did you have a look at the return edge link I posted above? You will find once you strap your butt plate to the kidney then to the ab plate that there will be a set distance between the butt and cod, then you can measure for elastic, It differs from person to person and different armor makes.
  17. Using a combination of clamps magnets and tape can help to tweak it while gluing, left side (looking from the front) could come up a touch more if possible
  18. TLJ behind the scenes A couple from TROS same gaps
  19. Looking forward to seeing some photos in the not too distant future
