ANH Stunt shoulder question


Recommended Posts

Reviewing the EIB and Centurion request threads has been a tremendous help as I get ready to start my first build. Can't thank you guys enough for making these public and providing such thorough comments along with reference pictures. Incredibly helpful!

 

I do have a question about the shoulder pieces and it isn't addressed in the CRL. I'm not sure I would expect it to be mentioned because it is an "extra" piece that may not be needed.

It seems like in some requests I have seen the large block at the end of some armor sets needing to be removed but other times it doesn't seem to get mentioned. Can someone provide clarification please?

That depends on how "far" the piece reaches down the back plate. In your picture I say you can have the block removed completely (or half at least) since there is enough length left for the elastic to hold on.

 

Just my $0,5 there. May be one of our DO can provide a better answer.

Hi Steven, 

 

Most of the screen seen Stormtroopers had this section of the shoulder bridge removed, so we  strongly suggest to trim off or half that section for higher levels. As Arthur mentioned before, also "That depends on how "far" the piece reaches down the back plate", the ends of the bridges should ride much higher above the O II plate below them.

Note that we are talking only in the back section. To the front , the tab is totally  accurate .

Hope this can help you.
