  3. You're so much fun!!![emoji1787][emoji2957]thanks for everything!!! Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  4. Totally!!! I'm pretty much at EIB now, but my E-11 needs to be sorted out. The one I 3D printed is very rough and I really just printed it to see if I could, and to just HAVE something. I think I'm going to start from scratch and get the doopydoos kit with Tony's completion kit. Once I have that I'm definitely going to put in for EIB.
  5. I'm happy to report that on September 12th I was approved!! I've posted this information on every platform I could and now I'm posting it here. When I first joined the FISD, I posted a before and after picture of myself and told the story of my weight loss journey and how joining the 501st was a goal of mine on my journey. I'm now happy to update that before and after picture. I would also like to take minute and thank a few that, l felt, were right along with me for my entire build. gmrhodes13, Coastertk, starsaber25, ukswrath. Thank you so much for your guidance and support. I truly couldn't have done it without you. Taking on a project of this magnitude is not for the faint of heart. I took it on because it's something I believe is worth it. If you are thinking of joining I suggest doing your homework first. Read, read, read...... Then read some more. There is a treasure trove of information and experience in this group and you would be a fool not to listen and utilize it. Thank you all so much for your warm welcome and guidance. I truly cherish every moment during this new journey. I can't wait to get out there and start trooping and meet some of you in person. "You've taken your first step into a larger world."

  8. Here's my new bucket bag that the patches are for. I'm going to cover up the "Raider" with the custom patches. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  9. Some patches for my new bucket bag. Printed at home on Avery fabric transfers paper. Really easy. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  10. I've been thinking... I've come a long way in my build in the last few months. And now that I'm sitting here waiting for approval, I started to realize something that has been told to me more than once on this journey. "You're never done." "You will always find something to work on." So in the spirit of never being done I'm posting some pictures of the Comlink that I 3D printed last night. I also got a really cool set of binders from Disney's Galaxy's Edge. I will keep posting pictures and asking questions on this build feed for as long as I am building. Thank you all for taking this journey with me. Let's really see where it goes!!! Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  11. So the pictures have been sent. Hopefully I'll be able to share my numbers with you soon!!! Here are some of the pics. We'll see! [emoji51][emoji16][emoji2957] Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  12. Ok. So the glue is still wet and I have some cleanup to do when it's dry. Better???? I think so. The key, I think, is to resist the urge to paint the ENTIRE button. The buttons on the ATA armor are much larger than the ones in the reference pictures. So it almost feels like you're doing something wrong if you DON'T paint the whole button. That also goes for trimming the pieces. There is a fine line between too much and not enough. I hope this puts to bed my TK button adventure. I think tomorrow I will be camera ready and....

  13. Just perusing the handbook while the buttons are drying. I wanna be prepared for the first day of the academy. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  14. We're gonna put to bed this whole button thing right now! Are you listening?! [emoji2957][emoji13][emoji1787][emoji3064][emoji849][emoji854] Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  15. Welcome!!! It's so much fun here! Ask all the questions. I'm fairly new and just finishing up my build but I've learned alot from these wonderful people! You are taking your first steps into a larger world....... Good luck trooper!!!
