Thank you!!! I dont have an actual plan of execution yet... just trimming the parts that look easy first. Then I'll probably need some help with the fitting, so perhaps an AP soon???

Armor parties can certainly give you some great feedback and hands on assistance. Build is coming along great, nice work.

Thank you! I hope to continue a little bit each night after work.
And yes, APs are great. Not only for the way everyone helps each other, but for the camaraderie.

Great question. Not since I've been in the DO position. Let me do some research

So I followed y'alls advice and did more trimming. I feel like i'm still being too conservative... but I guess I'd rather trim again than to overtrim. We'll see how it looks once it's all put together. I can always trim more later. 7c085af169e761a94b9a8e19ef4ca818.jpge55e5f49c70af05399d166fff53bc9d6.jpg

Trimmed the chest plate as well. After looking at the pics, my left shoulder may need more trimming... but I'm exhausted. Will continue tomorrow.497c5b1a769f16928e489647343da896.jpg&key=fc79819a8fbe5b636d8add0c8c74835ba3a41f70c87a031056dd4f430957707b6024d5a8e7dcd82d1ca67340b19e020a.jpg&key=5091d74b4248d8e9adc662f3dc804680cadbd301a5960e5db3a211de09f017973d4a1d1b64e6a007e935d413e9059048.jpg&key=b17511e1bfda33ba4a11e4c583a2b826e4a3f96d3abf682136b92a31404a76968095a4b07f3ae36c650aeaedae061ceb.jpg&key=8ebfb6333a59820d05fc245a5e064561e3433deac898d707bd788861b6f9a3d05995dd4c97f71aa4b36c4581085eaa6b.jpg&key=7bb947535f586017f554efa7856c767c08ccf258f57e6a50e0f4488d1fa17450

Make sure u sand cut edges REAL SMOOTH !!!

Definitely! Been using lexans, a dremel, and sandpaper. Will smoothe out the edges a bit more once I piece it together so it doesn't snag on anything.

For final smooth sanding if you use wet/dry sandpaper and soapy water the paper won't clog as fast and will last longer ;) Great work, kit it up.

Hi Lucy nice to see another Legacy build. Looks like you have been doing your research but just in case I would suggest having a look at this build thread as well 

 

https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/44182-legacy-fem-trooper-version-a-tj_fem-wip/

 

you've been quite conservative with your cut lines but the first ones are always the most nervous ;), As Daniel has suggested the shoulder bells could be trimmed up more and I have added some pics below for you to review. In the above link there is some good pics on trimming the Abb plate as well, The Forearms mentioned well the legacy is unique :) the standard  TK does clear out most of the return edges but for the legacy it still shows the curve of the return, but this can looked at when your there.  Since helping my wife clear her costume I have helped a few other legacy's on there journey, so will happily chime in and try to answer any questions you have along the way 

 

And good luck :duim:

Hi there! I do have a question.    Is there any return edge on the bottom of the bicep?

Hi Lucy, yes there is a return on the base of the bicep although you can make it small 6ed04ab794263189c3fafd7f4f58b83a.jpg
This is how the biceps were after rough trimming, will take a pic of the finished part later showing how they finished up

This is perfect! Thank you. I couldn't find a single pic of the bottom side of the bicep.

Also, the wrist side of the forearm has no return edge, and neither does the ankle side of the calf. Is that correct?
