  1. I chose mine with my lucku number in mind. 9433 was the only one available when I joined with 33 in it. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  2. Thank you. I'm still sort of new to all this. I appreciate it.
  3. My elections tab doesn't have any detatchments in it (granted I am only a TK so I would only have 1) but who do I talk to aboot that?
  4. What a great looking new skin for the forums. Great job guys! Looks fantastic!
  5. Better than the Eastern Erupean attempt at a SW Adult parody called Porn Wars. That one was actually a trilogy as well. They had Jodi's and Seth in theirs ha ha.

  7. Thanks Spectre, IT'S OFFICIAL!!!!! TK 9433 Reporting for Duty!
  8. Xaoslord, I gotta say, it felt great. I have trooped with this kit a couple of times before I took the pics, just to get a feel for it, and see what I can do to work on the armor pinches and thing of that nature, so technically, this wasn't my first time suiting up. But it was one of the better feelings getting approval pics taken. I'm still awaiting for the final OK from the powers that be, but it's fun to do this, and I am already looking into my next build. I caught the bug. And Darksideemt, Funny you should say that. normally they hang a bit lower. The squad leader in my area adjusted them a bit for me when I was standing there for a better pic, so they normally don't sit up that high when I am actually trooping. But if it gets me approved, I am happy!
  9. Hi, Finished my kit, here are my submittle pics. Apparently they are too dark ha ha. Need to see if they are still approvable.
  10. Belt is almost done! Just the thermal detonator to do, and pics of that drying below. The ammo boxes are on, snaps are on for the plastic front, everything is coming together. So here is where I stand right now. Getting ready for a huge build day. I am building with Tom Parsons, also going to get a hold of John and Colin to see what we can work out today on my ab plate problem. Alright, so here we go for today, Lots of pictures to come tonight as I get things working.
  11. Alright, So fixed some things, and got my holster in the belt. Aluminum pop rivets used... good call. SO here are pics, I hurt my back on Thursday, so I haven't been able to do much. I am starting to work on the thermal detenator tomorrow. Bought all the rivets, the grey PVC, and have everything ready for gluing. So here are the most recent pics. I pulled off the black straps off the ammo boxes and changed them to white. Glad I read a tutorial and learned me some info before just finishing up the belt.
  12. So my blaster is complete. Sorry I don't have more pics, but I have as much as I am going to have now. Maybe more on the next one. But for now, I was in a time crunch and really didn't have that much time to be taking pictures. I just needed to finish.
  13. Congradulations! I'm happy for you. Let's just hope I can finish mine ha ha. Sweet job on the belt too by the way. Glad it all worked out.
  14. Alright, more pictures comming tonight of the doopys kit on it, and the primer on it. Sorry, I didn't get the play by play, but I am in a bit of a time crunch, and have time tonight to take pics. BUt everything is on, and it has 1 coat of primer on it right now.
  15. Got my blaster, a modified hasbro from Doopys all primed last night. i will be putting another layer of primer on it tonight before taping off and starting the undercoat of paint. I'll take pics tonight of it primed and then then as I paint it. On another note, I bought a rivit gun and am working that to get my holster to my belt. Sad thing is, the rivits that came with the tool ar all too short. So I have to get some longer ones. Sort of bummed beucase I wanted to get that done. Well, that and the ammo boxes. However, thinking about it now, I might be able to get the ammo boxes on tonight becuase the belt and the white straps aren't as thick as the belt and the leather for the holster... we'll see what I can get done. But work continues. Slow, but continuing.
  16. I am thinking of working this after my build is done. I am in kind of a rush to get done for a troop next month, so in a pinch. Although once that troop is done, I can start working on EI. I already have alot of the components done for it. The dual snaps in the butt plate and one in the cod, the proper screws in the ears, etc. Soon, I'll put in for this, by the end of this year.
  17. I was taking a trip to Austria to see my mother in law next year, hoping to order one and have it shipped to Vienna and then bring it back from there. Hope that works out. If not, I may have another contact that I might be able to work through. We'll see how it all works out. But for now, seeing if I can work the Austria route.

  19. The only thing i see with the splitting of the cod and the ab plate is if your going to have roughly 2 inches from the bottom of the button plate and an inch of gap before the cod piece, that leaves the belt JUST at about the right height to make that work, I would just worry about the belt moving or shifting unless your using snaps to hold the belt in place right below the button plate on the ab and another on the cod. But then again, spacing is REALLY hard to work with with the space there. I could be way off, so like I said, I am really anxious to see how it's going to work and will be awaiting pics. Other than that, great build so far.
  20. Curious to see where your going with spliting the cod and the ab plate... I'm a bit taller, so looking at this is intriguing as I am trying to find a way to alter mine.
  21. Got my bucket ALMOST done today. Just need to wait on the mic tips and they should be ready tomorrow for install. But after some nice hand painting by my wife on my ears, I installed them, lined my helmet up the way I want it, and installed the ears and tacked the mesh behind the frown. Additionally, I am posting pics of the stuff I did at Cals on Friday. Got the rivets in the knee plate and also the band on the other leg riveted in. Also put a screw in through the thigh piece to make sure the band doesn't fall below where it's supposed to. SO without further adooooooooo..... Pictures!
  22. Alright, more progress last night at Johns! THanks again John! I'd be lost right now. So here are pics! More to come later! Working on my ears and mic tips as I type this (Meaning they are drying, so that's technically working...)
  23. Progress of my current build. Here is what I did tonight I wanted to install the ears of my bucket, but I messed up the paint, so I had to wet sand and wait for them to dry before trying my hand at the paint again.
