  1. Nothing specific in the CRL, I’d consider a few centurion examples and cut small increments until you are happy. Check occasionally with your GML. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Not sure on the gap, just need the sniper knee to be in front of thigh armor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Remember to keep sniper knee from getting behind thigh armor. Some add padding to back of thigh armor so it stays closer in the front. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Well this makes me feel slow. Ha ha. Given my issues with larger limbs I was on and off for 7 months to finish my build. I've heard others take as much as 2 years with BBB returning to a closet often. It's best to see each small task as an accomplishment and eventually you will have enough done for your basic application. Then there is just the constant repair and improvement which is less pressure than finishing the build.
  5. Below may not be consideration for basic but just some notes for future improvements. Arms will look better with small adjustment to spacing to even out the balance a little more. Some space between forearm and hand guard will save rubbing and damage to hand guard from posing with blaster, mine started to rip soon after started trooping. You could consider reducing the bottom of the bicep and forearms to give a more tapered look.. Opening at the bottom should be just big enough for your arm/hand to pass through with all return edge removed. After some trooping I decided to increase the overlap of my chest and ab pieces, when moving and posing I found the chest plate to raise too much and lose the overlap. It looks like you could lower your chest piece for the same purpose and give you a bit of space around your neck. It's helpful to always check back to CRL, my advice is from limited personal experience.
  6. You can compare to the CRL but you want all the back pieces to be together with minimal gap. With the ab connected to kidney that might set the height of your butt plate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I had the same issues with my forearms, added a V gap and was able to keep cover strips within centurion ranges. Also a hot bath with boiling water to reshape helped a lot, careful not to burn yourself or get armor too soft. If you have any questions you can ask them here or PM me. That sniper knee placement looks great, many hope Mark will make a post or video to help us with keeping it center and level.

  13. You can clean up the top of the biceps by removing the return edge, also the smaller they are the easier it is to close gap between bell and chest. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 3D printed blaster have improved with new free plans available for download. See my signature for link to 3D build and later comments for newest plans. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Welcome to the forums. Best place to start is some of the basic advice threads. Also take a close look at the CRL images and text. For basic you will need to match those requirements. In the ANH build threads check some of the pinned threads especially from Ukswrath. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
