  2. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/44182-legacy-fem-trooper-version-a-tj_fem-wip/?do=findComment&comment=602859 OK looking at the thighs i think your on track the return around the knee could be reduced slightly also fitting on the guidelines will possibly let them sit a little higher. would recommend using the rear part of the thigh as master for fitting. with the shin the initial trim lines are a good place to start looking at the overlap you have. the majority of the lower return can be removed if needed just leave the edge curve visible. would also suggest sizing the shins with the boots on as it does make them sit differently
  3. HI There, as suggested by the DS trim the corners out slightly more try to get as much visibility as you can for your wife, this lid is more restricted in view than a standard tk, you can cut back to the mold lines but personaly i tried to trim and shape in line with the curve of the lenses. also helps with the lense placement/fitment as well later https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/44182-legacy-fem-trooper-version-a-tj_fem-wip/page/3/
  4. Hi Nancy, with this build yeah only one thigh needed to be adjusted and I will get you a pic of the inside to show how we did this build so it left us with no real issues and didn’t cause a problem with approval but funny enough I have just helped another legacy join the 501st who had this issue on the thighs and calves/shins, let me dig out those pics as well and I will pull together a storyboard to explain what we did to make them sit and fit really nice and also how to eliminate one of the lines, especially if it needs to be on the outside as well. The pics below are just a quick reference Martyn
  5. Well TJ_Fem aka TK13570 has surpassed 50 troops its time for some refurb and repair which I will document in the next few posts will hopefully highlight any weak points that can be strengthened to start with during a build. Also taken a short video clip of each armour part which you can find here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0Xls082QKUU9o5LOTqmkCQ Hope this helps some of you out [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. The Merr-Sonn BB-23 heavy blaster cannon was an anti-personnel weapon used by heavy weapon specialists in the Sith Lord Darth Krayt's Imperial Army during the Second Imperial Civil War. The BB-23 was of considerable size and could unleash a great deal of damage against enemy infantry, gaining it the nickname "big gun." However, the blaster cannon had to be reloaded after every four shots, requiring the user to carry around a large amount of ammunition. The stormtrooper Jes Gistang of Joker Squad used a BB-23 heavy blaster cannon during the Empire's assault on Borosk, a planet controlled by the rival Empire-in-exile, in 137 ABY. During the second day of fighting, Gistang was killed in an explosion that also incinerated her BB-23. https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/BB-23_heavy_blaster_cannon
  11. Hi Danny yep your assumption is correct butt joints are required and the supporting strip should be non visible so used on the inside [emoji106], just to say modding the boots can be a painful experience also I’m assuming your going for version A due to the heels [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Having recently helped TK28103 through her build and clearance into the 501st we are now looking to hopefully get the BB-23 accepted and included on the legacy era crl have attached key reference pics in this post and will be adding build pics accordingly for review Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
