It's never too late ;) 


I decided I’m going to prime, sand, and fill the parts I know fit. I will wait to tackle the thigh issue later. I have motivation back and I want to put it to good use as there’s  are a lot of work to be done.


I ordered my gaskets from the amazing geeky pink last month.


The only other piece I need to order is my belt and I’m working on getting in better shape so that I can fit into all my costumes more comfortably.

I received my geeky pink gaskets yesterday which look amazing!!! thank you Teresa for your hard work and effort to make my first order gaskets and neck seal a reality! I am really looking forward to test fitting 90% of the costume soon!!

Last night I made progress with more pieces primed and some pin holes filled! Thus far I’m really impressed with Jim’s kit for several reasons:

1 - it’s a very clean kit, with very few pinholes and scratches to fill, s as I rotated the piece I was surprised how few imperfections there were. which means it’s faster to get it painted and onto strapping.

2 - crisp detailed pulls with sharp edges. I’ve seen other builds where details are soft and need to be cut out and replaced but not having to deal with that is awesome.

3 - It comes with no pieces needing to be shimmed .
Compared to my galactic marine build this is much easier and I’m excited to keep making progress and I’ll keep you updated!

Alright since my gaskets arrived I wanted to try and size the shins to fit but the results didn’t make enough change and so I’m asking for help here. I’ve taken off one inch of the left thigh to try and make room for the knee. Then I remembered the holster is on the right thigh and that’s a point I can’t trim past limiting how much I can take off the bottom of both pieces. I am wearing tight under suit and can’t pull them up any higher on my legs. I would love for suggestions for what to do next to adjust the pieces to fit. I am not going to get discouraged I will continue making progress on the pieces that do fit in the mean time. Is the square on the inside of the thighs needed? I’m not seeing it on the the crl.

Thanks in advance.
