  3. Oh, our Garrison won't care. I want the butt end to look more accurate, but as for the rest of it, I think it's good based on the opinions shared here. Of course, there will always be the one trooper who is totally anal and will nit pick it, but I generally ignore them... one advantage of wearing the bucket is how it hides excessive eye rolling. Thanks for the input!
  4. Yesterday
  5. A $1.50 voltage regulator chip will do the same job, take up no space as you can mount it on the Vellerman board. that's how I did mine and it is still faultless to this very day some 5 years later.

  7. Legion command issue the TKID's once your GML sends in the paperwork so it could be an issue there, but no harm contacting your GML to check that everything was completed at their end Hope to see you with numbers soon.
  8. Ok, Will do if I haven’t heard anything after clearance Thanks. Colin Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Getting to the exciting stage, I hate prep work

  11. Hi there I presume you sent your application through your GML (garrison membership liaison) of the UKG, they have a little different approach to the approval process compared to other garrisons, it can take a little longer for the process to be completed. If concerned check in with your GML phil.riches@ukgarrison.co.uk or wez.burns@ukgarrison.co.uk or through the UKG garrison.
  12. Correct, its just the same grey, same as the TD
  13. Most wouldn't even notice a difference there once it's painted, if you are really concerned you could check with your GML (garrison membership liaison) first just to get their opinion. As a GML I would let it pass for basic approval.

  15. Hey guys, So I'm looking to start my ESB helmet build soon. I don't know why but am i right to say the trapezoids were left Admiral grey when the ANH lids were used? I know the frown is black but is the grey still the same?? Thankyou
  16. The holes aren't aligned for me. The yellow mark is where I cut my aluminium rod off (I don't want to see it inside the flash suppressor) :
  17. Wandering off thread, but still mk136 related... Just replaced the 3x1.5V batteries with a 9V pp3 and a dc/dc convertor. Here's the convertor I've used https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08PNV2GXT/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_N962KEEDXJ9FZYH558TY?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 Circled in red is the 9v pp3. Used CA / superglue to make a loop of elastic, and glued some Velcro to it to secure inside the lid (really easy to swap out the battery, just slide out of the elastic). Soldered a small switch to the battery connector. MK136 has a power switch but the dc/dc convertor doesn't and might slowly drain power. In green is the dc to dc convertor. The input and output range is pretty wide, and adjustable. Before fitting to the helmet wire up the 9V battery connector to the input then adjust the pot so that you measure 4.5V at the output. I wrapped it loosely in black electrical tape so it didn't scratch my head or short on anything. Takes up very little space, and has a nice blue power indicator LED. In blue is the MK136. Standard stuff. I leave it turned on there now, and control power with the switch at the battery. I fitted a knob to the volume, which makes it much easier to adjust while wearing the helmet and rubber gloves.
  18. Thighs after doing the corrections: Thanks, justjoseph63 for pointing them out, they're much better now! I'll probably mix myself some ABS paste now for those gaps. Would probably be good to get the acetone work done before moving into a small room where I can't work outside anymore
  19. Not sure I understand, the hole goes from front to back, so I just need to cut to size, and put it in. I will actually leave a little visible so it looks like where the flame is coming from.
  20. Hi Chaps, About 2 weeks ago I applied for my TK number, maybe a little too prematurely perhaps? I have now applied for clearance on my TK armor build today. Could you tell me if my TK number request is still valid or if I need to wait until I receive clearance, then re-apply again, or is still on record and waiting for confirmation from the UK Garrison I've joined? Thanks in advance, Colin
  21. I am intriged : how can you add one now that everything is stuck together ?
  22. Looks good, I just used superglue and unless I drop it, it holds on fine mate. I will also add an aluminum rod
  23. I have asked steve to model an extra supporting piece to connect the two halves of the gun. I have included an aluminium rod that goes from the stock to the "flash suppressor". The extra piece features the same hole as the rest of the pieces, so it will sit nicely at the front. https://imgur.com/a/f1Vnh5V
  24. Hi Romain! TBH, the silver and satin black are only for those pieces, as I painted the silver, put the on, and painted the black. The rest will most likely be satin black, with brown woode handle gripa (like the T21 for example). The idea of this coloring comes from Marko's concept art for the 3D rendition, which looks great, and mixes some dark gray with black and some silver parts. As mentioned, I only painted these 2 pieces, awaiting CRL clearance first before I paint anything at all. The black is a simple Montana Hardcore satin black.
  25. All of these are ready for primer then 1000 grit sanding!
