  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

  9. three more troops to add bringing me up to 75 with my 75th troop being a little bit special 04 October 2019 DISNEY STORE - STAR WARS Force Friday Weekend 2019 ~ CHELMSFORD (Stormtrooper: ANH Stunt) 13 November 2019 EA/LFL Promo - Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order @ XO19 ~ London (Stormtrooper: ANH Stunt) 14 November 2019 EA/LFL Promo - Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order @ XO19 ~ London (Stormtrooper: ANH Stunt)
  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

  14. Ok personally i would have the front plate overlaying the rear plate as you have in your pictures, would trim the front plate along the penciled line then try on again much the same as you have already done then relay out the pencil line on the rear plate then trim say 10 mm inside of that. would also recommend using snaps on both sides as you can then have a range of different length elastics for different stages of weight gain or loss link below should take you straight to how this part of the legacy was put together which is pretty much the same as the fem7 at this point https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/44182-legacy-fem-trooper-version-a-tj_fem-wip/page/2/

  17. Will be happy to helpout / discuss stuff where I can [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. would say a fair amount of the assembly is very similar to the legacy Era Trooper, Again one of kevins kits so perhaps have a look a this thread/wip it might kick you off in the right direction https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/44182-legacy-fem-trooper-version-a-tj_fem-wip/
  19. Although not a requirement listed or stated in the crl my personal opinion is with the legacy the curves on the returns help with the overall look although in the lower shins you can work them back to as little as 3mm and still retain the curve and look Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. What your suggesting is what a normal TK runs with, with regards to the legacy there are returns although the requirement is not clearly listed in the crl its these little differences that make the legacy stand out In my opinion Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Hi Lucy, yes there is a return on the base of the bicep although you can make it small This is how the biceps were after rough trimming, will take a pic of the finished part later showing how they finished up Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Hi Lucy nice to see another Legacy build. Looks like you have been doing your research but just in case I would suggest having a look at this build thread as well https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/44182-legacy-fem-trooper-version-a-tj_fem-wip/ you've been quite conservative with your cut lines but the first ones are always the most nervous , As Daniel has suggested the shoulder bells could be trimmed up more and I have added some pics below for you to review. In the above link there is some good pics on trimming the Abb plate as well, The Forearms mentioned well the legacy is unique the standard TK does clear out most of the return edges but for the legacy it still shows the curve of the return, but this can looked at when your there. Since helping my wife clear her costume I have helped a few other legacy's on there journey, so will happily chime in and try to answer any questions you have along the way And good luck
  23. With the build and modifications now all done, and TJ_fem trooping hard for the UKG thought I would post up pictures of all the parts in there finished state. I will try and develop a contents tab with links over time just to make navigating the thread easier. For Anyone making the Legacy Era trooper past or present please feel free to drop me a p.m. or post if you have any questions or looking for advice will always try and help out if i can. Thanks for looking Martyn AKA TK42413
