  1. Sorry there hasn't been an update in a while...I've been going through a lot lately. My health took a rough turn and I'm gonna be out of commission for a little bit while I recover from dodging a bullet from ovarian cancer (caught it early at stage 1 but need chemo). Had to have surgery and all that and my first round of chemo is tomorrow. When I come through on the other side of this I'll get back to building my armor again. Just thought I'd give an update since I've been MIA for a while. Also got this flag from Galaxies Edge in the mail so thats something to raise the spirits while I ge
  2. Those spats look a bit different from the ones that came with my kit. Like if they were a flat piece of abs that was just curved around. Also looks like part of it is securely affixed or permanently attached to the shin and the side where the shin opens up is where the spats are loose at. This was what I was thinking about doing. If its okay for L3 Centurion, I will go this route with my shin/spats.
  3. Got a quick question regarding shins and spats. Would it affect EIB or Centurion if the spats were semi-permanently attached to the shins and just clasp together after clasping the shins? Or would they have to be separate pieces? The reason why I ask is because the spats seem really wonky and I feel like they would come apart when walking around and doing poses. Ive seen people use velcro to keep them in place but why bother having them be separate to begin with?
  4. I'm in the same boat. I think right now hes having issues shipping to the US because of all the covid stuff going on. Real bummer right now as I cant finish my thighs without it.
  5. Progress Report - 9/30/20 So that extended piece on the spats connector wasnt working out after all. There was too much force wanting to pull them apart and on the left shin the spats were still coming apart even though on the right it was barely making it. So I decided to bite the bullet and cut into the spats to extend them. I cut them in the front since the spats come together at an angle there and put an angled shim there. Going to go over it with ABS paste to make it seemless later, but now with this extension the spats are no longer an issue. Going to need some
  6. Gonna try that to see if I can improve the shape. In my panic, I added a shim where the 2 halves connect which may have solved my main issue. They still dont connect very pretty, but at least now they are not trying to come apart and they can actually stay together with masking tape long enough to get a few shots in. I need to find a way to connect these together, the neodymium magnets are too big to fit behind the greeblie clip that goes where these 2 halves connect and I feel like velcro is still too weak to hold these together while trooping. I'm very anim
  7. The build has been going slow lately as I've been running into a few roadblocks. So... The good news is I've got my shins all fitted up and held together with neodymium magnets and they are snug and comfy. Looks great with the IB boots! Just need to add the greeblies, primer and paint. The bad news...the spats do not fit The shins are too large for the spats to make it all the way around and thats quite a big gap. I think the issue is the shins are not exactly round at the bottom where the ankle is, more of an oval shape, but the spats are not fittin
  8. I'm making my armor pre-centurion ready so when I do finish it, all I will need for centurion status is rubber gaskets...thats the plan anyway. As soon as I get basic approval im gonna finish an F-11D and immediately go to request EIB and once I get that then I'll need to go hunting for rubber gaskets for centurion. Hopefully it will all go to plan.
  9. I'm happy for all the troopers that made it to this milestone. I wish I could have been a part of it but theres Centurion 500. Im definitely going for that!
  10. Good luck to the #1000! I'm aiming to be in that 1500 bracket lol
  11. Progress Report - 9/8/20 Not all progress is plastic! The undersuit that once did not fit, now fits! Good to know the diet is working! Gotta keep it going, even if the bigger undersuit is about to come in the mail. The knee gaskets right now like to slide down my legs, hence why I'm not wearing them. I'm thinking this wont be an issue once its velcro'd to armor. My order of extra neodymium magnets came in the mail, also the mesh for the TLJ helmet and my gloves from Endor Finders. The endor gloves fit a bit better and they are also soft on the inside
  12. Eh, not really a progress report as Dragoncon distracted me a lot today and I decided to take a break so I dont burn out - 9/6/20 Cleaned up the spats, they were a little thick on their edges. Alignment is a little wonky. Cant see it with the tape but they dont mesh together exactly. Just trying to visualize how to throw these things together. Ive seen people use snaps, velcro, or magnets and not sure what would be best. Also should I trim those tabs off a bit more? I thought about leaving it there as a hinge or something to help glue th
  13. Progress Report - 9/5/20 "Leg Day Part 2" After success with the thighs (Thank goodness!) I went straight to the shins to get them ready for the primer phase. These are gonna need a bit more detail work cause those greeblie indents dont really line up. I'm thinking about using the abs paste to make them look right before putting the greeblies there. CRL for comparison You can see that botched ironing job on one of the inside overlaps. Couldnt fix it 100% but since thats gonna be on the inside and covered with velcro or magnets, nobody will see it.
  14. My username MomoSS is actually short for MomoSuperSpeed. It was the name of a character I made in an old game called Toontown. Funny thing about that game is that you dont just type in your name, you have to pick 3 words to create your username in that game, and MomoSuperSpeed just stuck. Dont know why...perhaps it was fate. Over the years I've just shortened the name to MomoSS with the SuperSpeed part being reduced to just capital SS and nowadays people just call me Momo, even in person. I keep the SS though because Momo is a name usually taken when signing up for things.
  15. Progress Report - 9/4/20 "Leg Day" I've dedicated this whole day to just the thighs. I'm determined to get them set, also got Dragoncon Virtual running in the background. Working hard but also taking it easy while the con is going, so only gonna focus on one section a day till the virtual con is over with. The right thigh is now assembled. Outer side is joined together, the inner side overlapped and both halves are glued with JB weld so they are non-functional seams. I'm pretty sure with how thick my thighs are if they were functional seams they would constantly come apart. D
