  1. RS props use super glue to build their armour ( c.a. Glue) sand the glue areas down with medium sandpaper until smooth and re glue using whatever you prefer . But for speed use super glue .
  2. Use tapatalk for updating your build diary uploading photos , it does all the hard work for you . Use your usual browser to read the forums .
  3. I'm 5 ft 9 1/2 and have, over the years met most of the surviving actors who were stormtrooper s in the original movie . Non were shorter than me , but again non were much taller .
  4. Well done trooper . One nearer the 1000 and a great set of armour .
  5. Thanks for everyone's help and advice . I'm proud to support the legion and glad of the support of fellow members . I will go for centurion , and ive got quite a tick list of upgrades for that . This has been a great experience , again thanks to all who helped . I was mainly spurred on to go for E.I. By the march to 1000 , and I'm glad I've managed to get in to help get closer to that figure .
  6. Cheers Firedog , here's a second photo of the snap as it had a bit of residual paint on it, which I've scraped off . Also ...my sniper plate which I keep forgetting to post close up photos of . Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. i haven't painted the right hand single snap as I seem to remember it's not painted on the original suits .is that correct or does it need paint also ?
  8. There's a few photos I missed out . And looking at my armour to take these photos proved that I needed a bit of paint touching up ! First the six rivets down the left side of the body . As you can see...plenty worn away paint , so after a little touch up .... Next was the knee rivets, again they needed new paint . And the insides also And finally a photo of the snap under the right arm . I think that's my photos done...sorry for the delays guys ! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. How am I doing guys ? Anything else I need to do ? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Next those gnashers . I've scraped off the edge paint , and touched it up . What do you think ? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. That pesky chip gmrhodes noticed , and to be honest it's always bugged me . So a tiny dab of white filler and hay presto . Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. That TD issue . I've re drilled the holes and re positioned the ally brackets . I've filled the old holes with silver two part epoxy . When sat in the " on the belt" position the old holes are invisible . The photos above were taken outside in strong sunlight . Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Next is the TD . I've taken it to pieces and painted the screw heads satin black enamel . Tomorrow I'll attack the alloy brackets . Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Next that dMn butt plate . My thigh suspenders have two poppers , Ive dropped them to the second popper . This lowers the thighs a tad , and gives more clearance . When trooping I always use the lower popper , but I thought for the photos I'd use the higher one ...doh . The other problem was that the elastic holding the butt to the backplate had lost its elasticity due to age and fatigue . Replacing the elastic holds everything in a better position . Sorry about the mirror photos , I was home alone . Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
