  1. Hello TK19936 here. I'll be going to the FISD photo up on the Saturday, and I'll be going to the Rogue One Storming the Beach photo shoot on the Sunday.
  2. Hello, I'm ROTJ TK 19936 of the Canadian Garrison. I'm requesting 501st Legion status please. This is a link to my 501st Legion Profile: https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=23972
  3. I'm approved. TK 19936 of the Canadian Garrison reporting in.
  4. Thank you JSmails. I'm only going for 501st Legion status not the other two statuses. Maybe sometime in the future.
  5. OK, so here are the application photos, finally! There were sent this afternoon to the GML of the Canadian Garrison.
  6. Here is a photo of one of the drop boxes. Its not EIB or Centurion, so it does not a have a back piece on it. There is a gap of 10 mm between the top of the drop box and the bottom of the belt. Here is a photo of the holster. It has the longer black straps required for ROTJ. It was bought from TrooperBay. By the way, that grass had a dusting of snow on it this morning. Crazy February weather in the Niagara Region. One day last week it was 18 degrees C (66 degrees F) and we have only used our snow shovel twice this winter!
  7. Hi August. Thanks for your comments. The thermal detonator is about 190 mm, or 7 and 1/2 inches long, including the end caps, as mentioned in the CRL. The grey PVC pipe came pre-cut from Cast from Originals in the UK. I filed the ends, as shown in my photos, so that the end caps would fit well. I could not find grey PVC pipe of the same diameter (about 68 mm) in Canada. Ours is a little wider than that. I hope this helps you.
  8. Next is the torso armour, all connected. Now some close-ups of the other side of the snap. In this photo, you will see a white washer under the snap, to reinforce it. It is a washer made from left-over 2mm ABS. It is drilled, and then countersunk, to fit snug against the snap. Now a close-up of the elastic and velcro, between the kidney and abdomen, right side. Getting closer to being done. More photos tomorrow.
  9. The build continues. The elastic for the thighs have the loops sewn in to fit over the belt buckle. The straps are longer than some others I have seen, probably because the belt sits up high, just above my hip bones. Next is the arms with the biceps attached to the forearms, and some padding inside of both to keep them in place. The padding is from Len's Mill Store in Stoney Creek, Ontario. Here are the shoulder bells. 8 mm straps around the biceps. The top straps have velcro sewn on to them, to attach to the underside of the shoulder bridges.
  10. Sorry, one of the photos in the last post was uploaded twice, and here is the other photo of the male snap. The centre of the snap is 18 mm from the bottom of the trim. More of the build has been finished, and more photos are coming soon.
  11. Here is the webbing, glued between the abdomen and the kidney pieces in 2 places. And here is the webbing on the right side of the abdomen and kidney pieces. Black velcro has been sewn on it. Here are some photos of the male snap on the bottom of the kidney / butt plate. Tandy Line 24 nickel-plated snaps from Tandy Leather in Mississauga, Ontario.
  12. Here are some more photos of the build, completed in the past couple of weeks. The velcro is sewn on the white webbing, Here are some photos of the belt to hold up the thighs. The 1 1/2 inch (38 mm) webbing is from Len's Mill Store and the buckle is from Fabricland, both in the Hamilton - Niagara area, of Ontario, Canada. Total cost was about $5.00 Canadian.
