I +1 the idea of making the antenna removable. Great work so far!

Trying to set up a roadie to Portland for Saturday to address the flight suit, pick up the TIE box to finish, get some bridging plastic for my armor as Gideon needs it and visit Brian P to work on the bandoleer and pick up a couple of Imperial Disks. Getting a bit closer on this build. In going over the CRL, the helmet requires disks with no notch, and mine has notches, Fortunately, I need at least 1 notched disk for my Admiral Versio build, so there you go.

 Sierra came by today and we have the next to final adjustments to be made to the tunic. Collar needs to close a bit tighter, and the yoke doesn't lay flat as-is even before moving it over to the right further. It will need to be reduced as it covers the right pocket almost completely and it needs to be revealed. The clear plastic snaps that secure the yoke to the under layer will need to be re-located as well, that will be the final final fitting. Also going to add some fabric fusing inside the ends of the sleeves. Very close now, but the boots are going to have to be replaced as they are the "Cruel Shoes"...

Back from Celebration and the Star Wars tanks are fully recharged! I received some feedback, which I agree with, that my Gamo was too thin. So, I made some additional padding to go under my arms and help round him out:

This actually solved a few problems. It also made it so that my belt fit again and doesn't need further adjustment. After that, I cut where the jerkin came under the belt and painted the newly added on parts. No pics though.

Then, I started working on the shoulder armor. I want it to snap into place onto my jerkin so that it hangs where it's supposed to. So, I made some snaps and straps:

I then made the leather straps to go under my arm but those are boring and I'll put them on once I get the rest on.

Today, I started working on the sandals, which I figure is about the last part for submission. I added some Velcro underneath them:

And then started cutting leather to build the sandal:

And now I have one sandal!

Gonna tighten it up in places and maybe add a little velcro to keep them in place but dang, they look good! So, I would power through and make the last one, but this took about 8 feet of leather. And I had purchased about 8 feet of leather... So, now I'm waiting on ebay again. Hope to have it all done and take some possible submission photos in the next week or so!
