  1. Screen accurate builds since as early as 2010 at least, have been built without the shoulder-bicep strap.
  2. Ah, alright. Well perhaps more glue will keep them down. Otherwise I'm not sure. Hopefully you can reshape them if you try again. Perhaps this video has some tips https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4WKYsX6yak
  3. Hmm. Looks like two issues, yes they are a bit warped, but using cloth gloves wouldn't hold them down very well. Latex handguards more or less requires rubber gloves for the proper look and adhesion. When using rubber gloves it's important to use glove liners in cotton or lycra or it will get uncomfortable really quick.
  4. How warped are they? Got a picture? Latex is the more accurate alternative. But it is indeed stiffer. Silicone works well if you're going for an accurate but "idealized" look. Should you choose to stick with latex but worry they are coming of the gloves, some CA glue should work to hold them down.
  5. You should be able to find sheet aluminum in a well stocked craft / model making store. Or even large home improvement stores.
  6. I'm flattered and I'm sure your build turns out fantastic, but I had no part in those files. I've never done any CAD or 3D printing at all.
  7. Since your username is public, everyone knows what it is, and thus has 1/2 things they need to log in as you. All they need is to guess your password. Using the email which is not publicly shown, one would have to guess both the email and the password, making things much more difficult. It also brings us more in line with how "every other site" with a login works. Which is good in of itself. Consistency is good.
  8. Screen accurate to which suit? The video you saw might be looking at a different suit. Not all were assembled exactly alike. RS will build to match their original suit that they own though. I would have kept it as it was.
  9. I used my magic admin powers to impersonate you, and I could view every thread I tried. Do note that some sections of the forum are off-limits to you until you're cleared 501st TK.
  10. That is all highly individual and only you can know how much is enough by testing and testing again.

  12. Thanks! I'm also really happy to hear of your plans to replicate these beauties!
  13. Aside from your question being quite off-topic, yes. We have runs of detachment patches about once a year.
  14. Nothing the be confused about. Just look at the picture above. 2 screws in total. One above the ear bumps and one at the bottom.
  15. I've checked tapatalk and we still have the latest non-beta version installed so until I understand the issues better there's not much I can do about it.
