  1. sorry...nearly necroposted ...that'll teach me to be more observant !
  2. Look, having built many RS armor, you are worrying about nothing . Get hold of the black elastic and tear it upwards away from the inside of the shoulder bell ...it will come away easily . Then re position it and glue it back with superglue. I have done it many times..it's so simple !!!! Even thinking about re stitching the snap is a stupid idea,
  3. Remember, the RS is taken from a real screen used suit ... the curve of the backplate is screen accurate ...leave it that way . i notice you mention re inforcing the shoulder bridges ...don't . They need to be as flexible as possible . Make them solid and they will snap . Check screen caps for glueing them on , from memory the 5th ridge sits on the edge of the chest...but check .
  4. Take your time and buy the very best first off . Buy cheap/inaccurate =buy twice =money wasted . You can leave buying boots until the end of the build , so order from imperial boots when they open the next run .
  5. Couldn't find the PayPal tag for imperial credits, so I sent a few dollars instead . Glad to help.
  6. If you order from RS you have a six week turnaround , and can request a smooth helmet from them as they have a mould for people who don't like the movie accurate look . Unfortunately I don't know TMs timescale . Hope this helps.
  7. Delivery will be around six to seven weeks after you place an order . The secret is to take very accurate measurements to allow them to build the suit for you . Delivery to Belgium usually takes about two days from leaving RS . These days they are fast at replying to emails...and of course are always available on the telephone during working hours . hope this info helps.
  8. The two are quite a noticeable difference in colour . Id reccomend you call them direct and get a pvc replacement part for your lid . The two plastics don't mix and match .
  9. No, simply NO . sterr clear and buy from a reputable seller of armour that IS clearable.
  10. You made the right choice. studying other people's builds on this board is the best way forward , and RS are ever helpful on the phone if you need them , also they have a Facebook page especially for builders , with the RS crew regularly advising .
  11. Don't fit the black wire , it's not necessary and didn't appear on the movie guns. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. My guess is that you took measurements wrong when you sent the order sheet in . The armour is too small for you , and the thighs too thin . Or Have you put weight on recently ? They can only build to the measurements you send . Sorry if I sound blunt , it's not my intention , but reading something typed can give that impression .
  13. Nip over and try some on would be my advice . I take a 42 usually, and 43 imperials fit perfectly . the leather is soft , and the smaller sizes have softer soles , after a few hours wearing they look just like the boots in the movies, most modern painted Chelsea boots just look wrong, too stiff and badly shaped .
  14. RS Propmasters now keep imperial boots in stock . The white leather they are made from is lovely and soft , they really do look like the real movie boots , I love mine .
  15. RS can ship it to you in weeks, ready to go , and super screen accurate . Shepperton can't do that , and most troopers shy away from them for good reasons. Go RS every time !
