    Something like this will get thumbs up all around tip - cut the smaller one from the inside with a blade and sand to fit and note the straight corners
  3. I completely forgot about the rivets there!! I'll definitely try to implement those changes to tailor the details. I started working on the TK in Orlando before I moved to Colorado Springs, so I went to several Armor Party's with Gary at the TK Sweatshop. It was always really productive and helpful there so even though I may not be a member of Makaze, they'll always feel like my first squad. haha

    Hello and welcome to the FISD.
  6. Beautiful work! I've found using Automotive Polishing compound works a treat when getting a smooth, reflective finish on spray paint. I actually used it for my R1TK Bucket and it truly makes it look like a production piece. Just make sure to buff it really good. This is the brand I use: Meguiars Polishing Compound. Fun fact: I got this idea from my dad (who by no means is a project guy), having a boatload of car experience. "Why don't you polish it?" "Ah dad, that won't work." "Just let me see." He rubs it super hard, then buffs it. Looks absolutely beautiful, especially after wet sanding any orange peel, just smooths it right out. "See, dad isn't so dumb after all."

    Yep, we lived in Connecticut for nearly 20 years -- in the next town over from Sarah, in fact. Our daughter and grandson Jed (my Young Jedi) still live there and we visit frequently. I have an upcoming visit that coincides with the CTG "Space Day" event at the New England Air Museum so I asked for permission to fall in with them, and there you go. Really looking forward to it!

    AJ, Just wanted to again congratulate you on EIB and completing your build. It is fantastic, and awesome to see in person. I am pumped for you, and happy to have been part of your 1st troop this past weekend. Now onto Centurion!

    Forearms are basically done, except for the outer strips. I'm going to wait to see how everything lines up before setting the strips down, so that I can get the straightest line possible. Meanwhile, I've started painting the ab buttons. I'm sure it'll take me two hours of research to figure out where I need to trim this for Centurion...

    A.J. I bet if you made a tool that could measure, cut and punch the holes I bet you could sell these to the community, heck I'd probably buy one. This is a fantastic idea

  23. Great job on your armor Alicia. As for the arms, in addition to the strapping adjustments as Joseph mentioned dropping the biceps 1/2" or so will will even out the armor placement. Good luck with your approval

    So need some help from our "Expert Builders" The Chest piece return edge has been completely removed, (NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!) The result is that the chest piece is cracking in multiple spots, and is flimsy as all hell. Anyone have an idea or how to make a new return edge from ABS Paste?
  26. Here are the pics where I lined up the cover strips on the forearms and brought the shoulder bells in:
