  2. The best dog I’ve ever owned was called Echo. (and I’m Jenny). JenEcho is our kennel name (registered with the Canadian Kennel Club) and it pays homage to my beautiful girl who is long gone from this reality, but who lives forever in my heart.
  3. Welcome! I finished my 5'2" sized kit this year - it can definitely be done and look amazing. Cricket and Sha Sha's build threads are awesome and there is a good FB group called "A little short for a trooper" that has some good resources.
  4. Absolutely STUNNING job! I loved following along with your paint/dirtying work.
  5. AWESOME!!! Thank you so much! I will definitely clean up that E-6000 and adjust my shoulder straps. That connection was puzzling - I knew it was weird but couldn't figure out how to modify it. I really appreciate the advice. I'll fix those boxes and get my new pics soon! On to Centurion
  6. Yup your hand guards were fantastic and super easy to adhere. Thanks @justjoseph63
  7. Woohoo! Great work. You did an awesome job. And your littlest build is adorable
  8. Side view close up pics have been added. Please let me know if there's anything I've missed
  9. Yeah, the clips came with the kit. I actually tried to file them down a bit smaller, but quickly gave up on that because my lack of proper tools was causing extreme rage.
  10. Thanks Dan - it's definitely a challenge being a hobbit Those darn stripes! LOL - I went back and forth so many times debating what was the right way to put them on. You'd think with a 50/50 chance I might have got lucky. I'll get them perfect on my next build! The TD is 7.5" - I tried to get the ruler in my pic, but it didn't look great. Options for pan head screws are limited here in Canada. I'll be darned if I can remember the size I bought, but they fit into the same holes as the "original" kit screws (if that's relevant).
  11. Oh, I wasn't sure if linking to my pre-submission photos would be sufficient. I can definitely add them on here individually though
  12. Thanks! Oops - was hard to tell in that one pic, but the tips are white. Here's a better view

Thanks again for all your help here on these forums. This build can be overwhelming, but the advice and love from you guys kept me going.

  14. This looks absolutely stunning. Loving your attention to detail!!
  15. I was worried about this too when my armour was laid out, but found that once it's on your body, the back will naturally lean out a bit and rest flat against the kidney. It took a bit of adjusting of the shoulder straps to get it just right, but it did look fine once it's on.
  16. Hi Scott! It was good to meet you and your wife at the armour party! Best of luck sourcing all your parts and you have some amazing local resources in Luc and Andy. I look forward to following your build.
  17. But I want it all to stay new and shiny!!!
  18. Another question - my sexy white boots are already starting to be rather dramatically scuffed/chewed into by the bottom of my shins. (I'll take a pic when I'm home tonight). Everything is sanded smooth at that bottom edge so I'm not sure what my options are to save the leather. I have stirrups velcroed to the front of the shins to keep them from riding up and rotating.
  19. LOL! No worries! I like armour discussions. Feels like I’m always learning something new
  20. A wider belt might be the way to go - I went with materials that I had on hand which was 1" nylon webbing and plastic clips. It's functional, but when I cinch it, it's definitely not a comfy fit.
  21. Ah that’s exactly what I was wondering! Thanks
  22. Tonight's tiny project - painting pan head screws (yay! found them). These will replace the dome headed ones currently on my TD. Plan is to get everything done and pics submitted for EIB (and Centurion?) before the end of July. Can I use my original submission pics and then add on the additional pics? Or, is it preferable to take all new pics? Looking forward to my first armour party tomorrow! Hoping to get some hands on advice on how to pad my shins/thighs because man, you wouldn't believe the bruises I've got from armour bites. Another question - has anyone strapped their thighs directly to their ab, rather than using a belt/garter system? My belt keeps slipping down while I troop - I guess suspenders would hold it up, but I was thinking that using elastic and snaps right on the inside of the ab might be more convenient?
  23. Cricket you’re a genius! I took off the tiniest amount and changed the shape of curve. It wasn’t so much where the dip was between the thighs, but the convex curve that was very unnatural against my cheek. I made it concave and it seems to be staying perfectly in place now.
