Looking good Dynamic!

 

Where do you get your snaps from? Would a place like Joans or Michaels have some?

Hey Par...thanks buddy. The general snaps are from Joanne's. They come in silver and gold....I prefer the silver.

Great work on the thighs. Not everyone gets them shaped and high enough. Working on mine at the moment...very carefully!

Thanks JAFO! Yes it's one of those eye deceiving issues I had to keep playing with..I marked a line with a pencil on the tops just so I can hopefully get a consistent position/ placement each time.

Looks awesome brutha. I don't think I could've explained that belt assembly any better ;)

Alright...30 minutes later and Ive got this beast on for some prelim pics. Only things left are to place the TD and apply the velcro on the biceps as they are a bit low. I also need to fittle with the lid a bit. Let me know if you guys see anything else :duim: ...

Looking good mate! The only thing I'd call out is the left knee plate. Should be a bit higher. Hardly a problem though

I think the forearms are too long and thick.

 

And the drastic difference of paint between the helmet and armor, I think I should repaint my helmet as well.

Alright guys...Many thanks to everyone for helping me get to this point! Here are some pics I took for 501st approval (although Fettseven took with his digital). I will send the camera uploads vs these which were taken from my iPhone...

In my tutorial I use black shoestring elastic that goes under the armpit. Works very well without having to mod the bicep.

I think I missed that out, commented on it because they were just flailing on your approval pictures.

What gloss coat did you use? I'm using Rustoleum 2x Ultra Cover Gloss White paint, but need a good gloss coat that both won't yellow on me, or dull.
