I finally had a chance to get together with my squadmate Scott who also ordered Jim's FOTK. We are super exited to be working on them together! After 2 hours of sanding inside the pieces with 220 grit sandpaper we were impressed by the amount of progress we made! Nearly all the pieces were sanded, just a few more left!
 
I also ordered a FOTK Squad Leader Pauldron from IG - hoping it shows up soon.

That’s a lot of sanding - there shouldn’t be a troublesome fibre left.

You had contact with Imperial Gaskets? There was a rumour they were ramping up again.

Yes - my pauldron shipping finally updated and it's in Chicago.  I will keep you all posted once it's here!

Received my pauldron from IG!  As Devastator Squad Leader I feel like this is a necessary addition!  I hope to make more progress on the armor this weekend!

Hope you and your family are all well. many of us are slammed with work and in situations we aren't used to, but one thing is for certain, we are here for when you can return to your build.

Stay safe Zach.

I really appreciate the support Andrew. I usually feel drained coming home from work these days but knowing there is an end in sight keeps me going.  I also remind myself that if I am too tired I don't have to work on my costume, it will be waiting for me when I have more energy.       

 

Hey Zach any progress?

Yes, I was able to try some of the armor on for the first test fit!  Pics below:   MVIMG_20200330_194715.thumb.jpg.538ad6704668f1329a658e2180e788a8.jpg   

 

Spacing on the arm armor looks good to me.

I'm thinking these areas will need to be trimmed a little bit at a time to ensure a better fit. Let me know your thoughts:
