  1. Oh, forgot, get some of these for the front hinge... https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F253070781129 Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  2. I made my doopy with a functional stock. Maybe look at my wip here on the fisd, which may help [emoji846] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  3. Following mate! Good luck big man!! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  4. Its battle damage! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  5. There are a few tkuk builds on the ukg at the moment mate. Why not have a look, you can then make a decision on whether to go for one or not. I'm one of the armoury team over there. Like i say, there is a fair bit of work involved but they can be cleared mate. Have a look and base a decision on what you think. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  6. Jasper, where are you based? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  7. It can be cleared. However, the work involved involves a fair bit more time than other vendors out there. The "clam" seems to be, for the taller and larger trooper and needs a lot of attention and trimming. Some parts need swapping out, such as the hovi mics. Ultimately it's down to the buyer, and it's great value for money. But, you have to be prepared to do A LOT of work, and expect to invest more cash, to get cleared at basic level.

  8. Personally I would extend the shoulder elastic which would allow the chest to drop down a little. Can't quite see but I would imagine the top of the chest is quite close to your throat. But hey, what do I know [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  9. Not talking centurion level Tony, but as I said above. Basic is VERY basic at the moment. There are troopers out there who will build to basic, and then be discouraged due to the extra work involved. I guess what I'm saying is that EIB standard should now be basic. Too many 501st garrisons out there clear on a basic level. Then you see other troopers copying their builds, which repeats a substandard build. I honestly believe that if basic was removed, then future builders would engage more with how closer they could get their kits than at the moment. Just my humble opinion, but think we are focussing on the wrong area atm Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  10. Needs to happen mate. Makes sense, there's too many wanting to clear that are no where near a standard, but then you get the basic crl argument. You know the standards the ukg have and as an armourer the basic leve canl become an area of contention. We want our guys to look the best. However, some just want the easiest route to 501st status endorses that. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  11. Tbh, I think you have a point with highlighting basic approval. Surely this should be the focus, I mean, decal tube stripes, plastic hand guards etc. Let's start new members off on the right track, rather than asking for corrections down the line. This would bring clearance levels across garrisons closer together. No? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

  14. Congratulations Sven!!!!! Well done mate, I'm sure Centurion won't be long to follow! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  15. Looking good Sven. I think the thighs still need dropping a tad especially as they overlap the butt plate. I'd also suggest having a look at the belt, it looks a little off centre which in turn, is not allowing your drop boxes to hang equally beside the thigh covers (if that makes sense?) Not long now! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  16. Looking good mate! Yeah, I'd drop the thighs a touch. Let's have a look at those thighs from the back before you cut anything [emoji846] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  17. Try flipping the ammo belt 180° it may be that you have it upside down. In terms of the sniper plate, glue one side, let it cure for 24 to 48 hours, then do the other and drop a blob of glue in the middle. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  18. RS specs... Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  19. Troopacoola Specifically designed for the TK. But, I would say that lol! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  20. Yes, 10mm from edge to centre. Here's a pic of the RWA kit my son has Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  21. You mean these Sven? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  22. Hi, it's as simple as a potentiometer, I do (Troopacoola) fan systems, but found that the potentiometer led to the fans squeaking a fair bit, so I opted to go down the digital route. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  23. Ahhh, my bad! Yeah, we used the hot water bath method before trimming and glueing the rear. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  24. If you mean the rear covers, we cut them at an angle Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  25. My son had the same issue, here's what he did with his.. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
