I should be able to drop in and offer some sarcasm and quick wit. Just because white pants are better :thumbs:

I'll be there with a BBB, a stack of online printouts from various build threads, and a terrifying sense of "I'm about to ruin this horribly." :)

After talking to some of those that have finished theirs, you will find out how easy this really is. I tell everyone I talk to about armor building to look at it as 1 piece at a time. If you look at the whole project it will seem overwhelming.

I'm going to come out and lend a hand. I'll bring my ATA armor for reference as I've got some clean up work I can do on it.

......and you are Centurion level, so that will be good reference for them.

Thanks to everyone for all the hints and tips about how to get started to turn a BBB into an actual set of armor. Was very nervous before but now I feel, at least with the trimming part, that it is totally something I can handle. Will panic about the gluing next time. :)

Since everyone was so welcoming, and since I heard the Dark Side loves them, here's more cookies.

Thanks,
Brian.

Are there any inaccuracies to the armor that need to be modded for approval? Wanted to know for the next time someone asks on the FB page.

It really depends on what level you are going for.

First and foremost for any level....the holster needs to be fixed. (Two screws, not four)

My problem is not a desire to host an armor party, but lack of space.

it looks like I must motivate myself to finish this armor

I am sure that once the weather turns consistently warmer...another armor party will present itself. No worries! :)
