Still tweaking things. Added a wireless mic and sewed on my new garrison patch! d03ae6294fabc5dc69b87bd5a995f84f.jpg01835b0de75f53cf746f3dc84d8dcd4d.jpg

So after some real world trooping I've come to find out that I need some more range of motion in my knees. I decided to start trimming the return edge on the upper part of the thighs first. I'll test fit and see how that goes.de6b1d92f8f717b029db0e32e8c1acc4.jpg16193f9883996605338a0aa3698b7f4e.jpg

After cutting off the return edges, I still needed a little more room. I decided to take off another 1/2" of material and now I can actually walk up stairs the way a human should!! e6603b3d80f939fc98886dea7f8f578f.jpg7dcb4e733934f219779e7b0e6a8924e1.jpg6b2bf0ec90ed501b419523c1ef4f1f15.jpge972ea6cc58824eaa0fe5cb4a9f4ed14.jpg

Nice work, good to see you are taking it in small steps, I've seen a few go straight in and take 2 inches off and end up taking too much off ;)

So here it is! My kit is being packaged and shipped as we speak. In anticipation for my BBB I figured I'd start my build thread. I was able to go to my first troop last weekend at a local comic book fest and see how thing are done. This was a great experience! TK55933 showed me the ropes and I think I'm going to love every minute of this ride!

 

 

A little background on me. I have always wanted to be a trooper, but I've also always been unable to do this due to my weight. On July 30th of last year I had Gastric Sleeve surgery. This saved my life. Being obese led to high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and pre diabetes. My BMI was 41 and there were nights I didn't think I would wake up. Now I'm a year out from surgery and I've lost 120 pounds and I haven't felt this good since the late 90's! Now that I'm at perfect trooper weight it's time to join the ranks. I set myself a goal during this whole thing. To join the 501st. Today officially starts that goal being a reality!

I knew my kit was being made and I got a little excited and couldn't sit still. So I started 3D printing my E-11 Blaster.

With a little luck I should be able to post some pics this weekend. I welcome all suggestions and look forward to bombarding all of you with questions! 

 

Thank you all for helping make my dream come true!

 

 

I'm glad that you are doing better my friend. Being a stormtrooper has been a dream of mine since I was 13. Now I'm 53. Also I am wanting to be healthier so I can see my grandchildren graduate and get married and have great grandchildren :')

@Von Goodleef - The Imperial Handbook is available at Amazon or Barnes & Noble (US).

Additionally, the backgrounds on many Trooper's images are all photoshopped. Individuals' photos are simply edited onto general Imperial-style backgrounds. Hope this helps!

Here are some fixes I've done for EIB status. Fixed the rivet on the cod. Fixed the paint on the frown. Here's to hoping!!!!3c06649a471a56dd539ac69747065cf4.jpg91a14ccedc12a0bf7fe959b4d64558ba.jpg3c19bc0dea043a46780ede9f1b82b24e.jpg
