Also I would recommend trimming the leg armor a little. The thigh armor and shin armor should be seperate and not touching each other. The thigh piece you can trim at the top and the shin piece you can trim at the bottom. That should not only make for a better look, but it should fit better as well.

I'm not sure when they changed the CRL but it now reads for ANH hero and stunt

"The drop boxes dangle from the sides of the front plastic belt (ammo belt) via white straps and are aligned under the plastic tabs of the ammo belt. "

I plan on making those straps shorter just like. Have seen and will be the same material as belt when finished. These are the little things that I like knowing and will make approval process easier. Thanks once again for everyone's input.

Yep, that looks like a change from the last time I looked at it. Good catch!

I stand corrected. :)

Honestly I think the white straps look silly , and when I saw them I doubled checked to CRL to see if the white straps was acceptable, boy was I in for a shock .

Haha, yeah it is hard to tell but if you look at the screen caps in the blu-rays you can see there is a little bit of white strap showing. They only hang down about 1/4-1/2 of an inch so it is difficult to see.

CURSES!!!

If I can't make it out for that I'll be sure to round up some of the Local Tuskens for another Party.

I want to see you get everything done on the TK at this one so you can come troop all the troops.

If you are thinking of building a Tusken, I have friend that has an almost complete Tusken he is wanting to sell. I think the only thing missing is boots, gloves, and the aerator. It includes a rifle.

PM me if you are interested.

My TK will be done by then for sure, the canvas belt looks great and now I am just attaching everything so it is up to 501 standards. I just need to paint ear pieces correct shade and I am pretty much ready to go. The Tusken will not come before the TK I assure you.

Well belt looks great and all buttoned up, paint on ears and ab pieces are drying but my problem is I cannot find the outer button/control panel piece for my thermal. So does any one have one they want to part with before I purchase a new one online, I dont mind buying it either but I know mine will show up once I get another lol, gotta love the kiddos.

If Trenton doesn't I am pretty sure I have a spare as well. I'll have to check once I get back to KC (in Colorado through sunday)
