have added more gray hair to the shoulder areas, where a little mesh showed whenever i lifted kids, also added some pleather under the bando around the shoulder where it tended to flop during same action.

hope i get feedback on my application soon. hehe

Hi, no list yet, just an acknowledgement that my application is now for review and a quick question about the mouth if static or moving.

Did the 2nd test troop last Saturday for Star Wars Day ( May the 4th be with you) and paid tribute to Peter Mayhew.

sharing some initial photos










and some photos with the local RL's approved Chewie as comparison shots ( have already suited out so just wore the mask and stilts) in the dressing area

Your build may have been the slow build, but I swear, it's is so nice to see and follow. You have put so much care into how you did each part of it. Can't wait to see you approved!

Thanks, really appreciate the vote of confidence.

Have received a comment on my build and will comply to make the mouth opening smaller ( since its static). i knew it but tried to see if it would pass, the opening helps with exhaust and breathing, i could also rehydrate using a straw without having to remove the mask..haha...but of course the CRL has to be followed...will make the necessary adjustment and resubmit soonest. MTFBW us all/ cheers
