    If you take a look through the "tall trooper" threads, you'll find there's more than a few of us your height. Those same threads will give you an idea of where to get armor that should fit you. And welcome.

    Star Wars Resistance

    Great, now I'm going to think of this guy as "Commander Duck." Do you think maybe someone at Lucasfilm Animation is familiar with the Donald Duck remarks about the FO helmets, and decided to have fun with it? After all, Disney animators have a history of putting Easter Eggs in their work ...

    Star Wars Resistance

    The FO Commander appeared in this week's episode. And my first thought was "And there's the next CRL-in-progress for the FISD." The "anime-inspired" style takes some getting used to, but at least they didn't take inspiration from the more ... abstract anime out there.

    Wompet's ANH-Stunt ... Rebuild (AM)

    Well, I already evened out the kidney and butt plates, so that's done. Yeah, the original owner did some ... interesting things with his build. Weird snaps and return edges everywhere. I drilled out and replaced the incorrect snaps with the correct ones, but now I see that I basically have to do the following: Well, I can take care of trimming those when I do the ab buttons.

    Wompet's ANH-Stunt ... Rebuild (AM)

    I haven't updated this in awhile (and I don't know if anyone can read this right now), but the only things left before starting a Pre-Approval thread are replacing the Ab buttons (a quick trim, paint, and glue) and a little work on the helmet (I'm playing 3-D Tetris with my head, the helmet pads, and the electronics).

    As a previous contest winner, I'm not entering this time - I'm here to encourage everyone else to enter. This is a really good book.

    Wompet's ANH-Stunt ... Rebuild (AM)

    Just interruptions and delays. I still need to: finish re-doing the straps (I now have new snap-setting tools, so hopefully this will get done on my next days off) remove, trim, repaint, and reposition the ab buttons (or possibly just repaint) re-do the belt and order a holster repaint the helmet

    Swag Toss

    Let's see - a couple of people have already tried the Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything, and that wasn't it ... I'll try 55.

    Anovos update

    I got my refund last week. If anyone is still waiting for theirs, just keep at it. Polite weekly reminders that you're in Day XX of the 15-day refund process seem to work.

    Phasma Deleted Scene

    How to say this without (too many) spoilers ... This was a major plot point of Marvel's Phasma mini-series.

    Wompet's ANH-Stunt ... Rebuild (AM)

    Okay, haven't updated this in a while ... I removed all of the return edges from the forearms (I thought - having looked at some other threads I may have to remove a little more. I still need to: work on the bucket (but now I have paints and templates from Trooperbay for the outside) re-do the strapping (need to get some brackets possibly) remove, repaint, and re-position the ab buttons repalce the female snaps on the posterior armor with male snaps So, for the last point - any suggestions on how to remove the female snaps? And, when I get out the Dremel for the forearms again - I need to even out the butt plate with the kidney plate, don't I?
