  1. any other questions just drop me a message
  2. once the paste has set you can file/sand into shape might take one or two go's then totally cleanup the shins and add the velco at the back As you can see once you have been through all this the shims still look like they should and the raised portion stays nicely inline with the thighs
  3. use the templates to make shims out of ABS and then glue (E6000) in place once you are happy with the shims mix up a batch of ABS slurry (there plenty of references to this on the forum) and start to fill in the joins Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. step1 assemble the shins as normal and check what you've got to work with if the shin sits nice around the ankle as in the above pic reduce the return edge to minimal size (i.e just showing the top radius) just to help then carefully cut done either side of the raised areas thill you get them to join up and sit straight as with the pic above. once you have achieved this you can make triangular templates from card to cover the now visible areas do the templates for both shins Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. ok So i understand your concern with the shins, these are a complex part as is but lets try to help with the issue, firstly i would assemble the shim as normal you can refer to my guide for this part of the process the difficulty is keeping the correct look of the shin armour with it being unique and very different form that of a normal TK but that being said i have worked with a number of legacy's now and have a method that i feel retains the right look
  6. All finish and back out there weirdly enough trooped the location for next years celebration at the weekend Hopefully we will see some of you there Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Just the helmet to finish off in time for this weeks con so we should have some fully kitted pics after the weekend, of what I think is the first legacy to have gone the extra mile to smooth out the seams Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. What I can post now is the finished armour all painted and polished Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. The main parts we’ve identified to go seamless are the biceps, vamp braces, thighs and shins this has been achieved with various different fillers and and a lot of sanding [emoji1787] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. So after a long break due to covid we all head back to trooping but storage hasn’t been kind to a lot of armour so we made the decision to go for a full recondition including making the armour seamless where possible due the the discolouration and the need for painting Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. 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
  13. 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/
  14. 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
  15. 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

  20. 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
