  1. I'm 6'1" and "they" had issues with the gap between my back plate and the kidney piece (and it's not even that big of a gap). How'd you get around that?
  2. Great, now I'll never be able to un-see it! SB
  3. Not really into Hamlet (or Shakespeare in general), but this was well done. Watched it for the TK and the cinematography. SB
  4. Lookie at the OT AT-ATs and a variant of the AT-ST... Looks awesome! SB
  5. Thanks everyone! I'll keep you posted on how it goes. SB
  6. Submitted my 501st application photos today! Thanks for all your help and let me know if anything looks off! SB
  7. Dang. You're making all of use mere mortal dads look bad! Very cool! SB
  8. Actually, here is a pic of the cutout on the backs of my thighs. I'd like to trim some more for better movement, and my question is this: How much can I get away with trimming?
  9. Alrighty, I've uploaded this pic elsewhere, so size should no longer be an issue. I trimmed the two corners around the neck as well as the return edges around the tops of the thighs, although I don't have a pic of that. I'm taking my submission photos on Saturday, so wish me luck! SB
  10. Thanks for the replies, all. @gmrhodes13, I guess I wasn't super clear with my image. I was wondering which leg looked better in terms of the gap, the left or the right. After fiddling around with it a bit, I think I'm going to go with the smaller gap. This also helps out with walking, as it lifts up the thighs so that I can bend my knee a bit more. I have a slight cutout on the backs of the thighs, but I'm wondering if I can do more for ease of movement. I don't have a picture handy, but I'll get one in the next few days. @justjoseph63, thanks for the heads up on the buttons. Luckily it's all E-6000'd on. I'll pop it off and sand it flush. Also a good point about the upper thigh return edges. Those aren't required? If not, I'll definitely be taking those off to ease movement and fit (thick thighs here lol). And @Allan1313, I have seen people do the hot water bath on the backplate to help eek out an extra cm or two. I'll have to give that a shot. Also another general question: would it be okay to trim the neck return edge a bit in towards the corners, so that it blends evenly into the shoulder straps? I get a bit of neck bite from these two corners. See the pic below for illustration. Thank you to everyone who has replied thus far. It's really helpful! I'll update later with some more pics as we go. SB Also, how do I attach more than just a teeny-tiny image?! This is driving me bonkers. I had to compress this one to smaller than 30kb in order to attach it to this post. What am I not seeing here?
  11. Alrighty, I got one of Ty's garter systems in the mail and love it. I also adjusted the chest to sit lower on the ab section. But I have a question about the thigh armor gap. How much is too much for acceptance into the 501st? About where should it be? #crotchshot
  12. Thanks for the replies, all. I am going with a garter belt system and I'll see how that helps. I'm sure it'll help a bit, but I just may need to add a spacer underneath the belt as well. We'll see. I'll post pics as we go. SB
