Chewbacca WIP

Post by heliboy999 » Sun Dec 01, 2019 11:28 pm

Evening everyone.

After denouncing the dark side and hanging up my Vader, I Cleared my Resistance pilot. I’ve now cleared my Chewbacca with Rebel command and would like to get him under the RL banner too.

Any feedback would be appreciated to get him through to the RL clearance.

Looks fine. Only thing to watch for is the stilt bump above the knee where the bandolier pouch pulls in the hair. I use padded ice hockey shorts under mine to stop it happening

I see what you mean.

I will add a bit more padding to bulk it out.

Made a small extension over the side of the knee to stop the stilt showing through under the fur.

Great work mate. Just need to get your submission pics taken again. Once you’re kitted up get someone to give it a light brush down. That we it’ll make sure to hide all the transitions. For submission you’ll normally need, front, back, left, right, one with the mask off and close ups of the feet, bandolier, hands and mask etc.

Sorry, I have to take submission pictures again because I added a piece of foam to the knee?

Kitted up today to get pictures for my generic Wookie set up so I tried to redo the submission photos.
Seriously bright sunlight so difficult to avoid dark shadows

Looks great and didn’t want to cause you any hassle. Just passing on my experience with previous submissions to avoid you having to retake some after submission. I would look at a bit more padding on your right knee around your waist if you can, as you can still see the weight of the pouch pulling in hair at your knee. You can certainly put in for submission and they may pick it up as an advisory that you’d need to address before trooping. Does look really good though.

If you thinking of trying to also clear it as a generic with the RL ? I’m not sure you can as I don’t believe that the judges generally clear a Chewie as a generic, even with different armour etc.

Ok cool.

It’s something g the Rebel Command have recommended because there are a few Wookie’s at bugger troops.
Not a problem if RL don’t really do it.

I’ve got a big foam band to put around my right knee which will pad it out.

You don’t see the problems until after you de-kit and look at the pics.

I shall go ahead and submit

Thank you

I know what mean about the bigger troops. That’s why the current Wookiee I’m working on is going to be a generic. Look forward to seeing you cleared.
