Hi Sovereign Protectors! I'm working toward finishing my TFU ESG. My progress to date is as below:



Armor
[ ] Helmet : needs cut to match reference
[ ] Chest Plate : Possible to small
[ ] Back Plate : making template
[ ] Shoulder Bell : needs flattening of ridge toward base and cut to match reference
[ ] Ab Plate : making template
[ ] Bracers : cutting template
[ ] Shin Plates : need repaint and finish
[ ] Foot Plate : need repaint and finish

Soft Parts
[ ] Flight Suit : needs leg slack taken-in
[F] Gloves : Done
[ ] Belt : refabricating belt, needs dye buckle attachment.
[F] Belt Buckle : Done
[ ] Kama : refabricating to appropriate trapazoidal shape.
[F] Boots : Done
[ ] Shin Plate Straps : refabricating to accomodate added flight suit bulk

Accessories
[ ] Saber Pike : revising 3D model before printing
[ ] Cloak : material acquired


So I'm getting ready to cut the helm and shoulder bells. Can anyone say if i need to adjust these lines in order to be approvable? (pics below)

Helm front & rear proposed cutting lines at white tape. Good to cut or should I adjust?

Image
Image
Shoulder Bells front and side proposed cutting lines at black tape edge closest to center ridge. Good to cut or should I adjust?

Image
As I understand the CRL the chest needs triming in some way too, correct? How should this be adjusted?

Chest is fine, its more you may need to trim some once its put on your body due to the body style.
The part that would be trimmed back would be the top of the shoulders as the helmet sitting on the top of that cause it to raise up a quite a bit.

the tape lines on the front of the helmet are too narrow. You need to leave more of the shoulder flares in tact.

The shoulder bells also don't look right in shape... are they TK or TB??

If they are TK they aren't in the right shape... they should be TB with the added ridge details as specified in the CRL

The shoulder could be TK as long as the lower part of the ridge fades into the bell.
So you can add the ridge on the upper part of a TB shoulder or make it Fade in with a TK shoulder.

Yeah, bells are TK. In hind sight, I should have found a TB and added the ridge. I'm thinking a griddle and a similar diameter block may allow me to fix this. If not, perhaps a body filler and a lot of contour sanding.

Tape lines adjusted on the helm. Photograph with chest plate attached. Definitely rides up a bit but I can still see forward...and trampling things is an Empire specialty right? No, this will need to be mitigated. Does anyone have photos of how the chest can be trimmed to offset this rise?

New proposed cut lines are the outermost tape line. The inner is the previous line for reference.

New line looks better - and rule of thumb is better to cut more than once :)
