  1. I’ve still got the cod to build but I’ll get onto that soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Ignore the scuffing around the top edge it’s where it gets covered by my back/chest armour and isn’t seen. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Hi all, apologies for the delays but sadly I lost my dad to cancer so everything has taken a backwards move. But I’m back now! As a start I’ve finished the TD. As requested I’ve changed the end cap, removed the thin black stripe and I’ve also added the black line around the body where the end cap sits (Couldnt get a decent pic of that bit but it is there!) Question for you folks, I’ve seen some forearm armour with what looks like a hex drive bolt in place of the grey spot, is this accurate as well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Ok at least I’m on the right track now! Just double check me on the additional black line are you referring to where the end cap sits against the main body of the TD? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I’ve also made a template for the TLJ cod. Any thoughts before I cut it out and shape it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Quick update, I’ve improved the TD (I think!) also the wrist armour as requested. I’m doing a full kit up at my buddy’s tomorrow so I’ll do all the others then. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks for all the feedback folks, I’ll look at doing another cod. The legs are a no go area as that’s the actual shape of my legs (they don’t line up with my thighs) as I said I’ve had some serious knee injuries and as a result my lower legs are a bit ‘odd’ The shin closure has since these pictures been reversed so the closure is on the inside so much neater to the outer edge. I’ll post some pics soon as I’m having another kit up this week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. It’s been a long build to be fair (7 months) there were 4 of us all with builds going on at the same time and all had the same issue regarding the TD. I’m going to repaint it to the all black version so that won’t take me long at all. Thank you for your help. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. No problem I’ll get the side shots done early next week for you. Regarding the TD we had a long discussion whilst I was building the armour. I found pictures from TLJ of the TD you have shown and ones like I’ve made. It was decided by my armourer in the UKG and the GML’s that both had been used but the one I’ve eventually done was to be the main one for clearance. ( wasn’t my decision and no idea why one was chosen over the other) I’m more than happy to repaint it if necessary. Thank you for picking my request up so quickly! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  11. Thank you, I’ll get on it now! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Forgive me if this has been asked and answered before but can I submit my TLJ FO to see if I can get my EIB? Just had it cleared by the UKG . Thanks all. Ian Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
