  5. Not been on FISD for a while due to TT not working. Ohhhhhh it's gooooood to be back!!!! Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  6. Will be fine . Trim the covers strip to be level with the higher of the two. It won't be seen anyway
  7. If you're having problems, download Tapatalk. You can post pics directly from your phone! I use it for most of my forum posts. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  8. Just glue the cover strips. I usually glue the inside ones first. Wait for it to set (24 hrs) then do the externals. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  9. Does ATA come with thumb prints on both bicepts? If not, then that's the left bicept. It's probably worth taking the cover strip off and removing a little more material from the raised edges? I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong! In terms of scratches, they're gonna happen. If not during the build, you'll get them when trooping. Hope this helps Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  10. About time! Well done mate! Now let's see you get your EIB then centurion submitted! Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  11. It also helps to stop the shins riding up. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  12. This helps keep my shins in place. Velcro inside the shin! Hope this helps! Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  13. Did I say I was done?? Decided that after a few troops that wheeling my trunk was a bit of a labour. Time to remedy that! I removed my kit, the lining,and all other bits from the trunk and lovingly placed the contents in an organised fashion in a safe place, or in other words, dumped it all on the couch! Next off was to remove two of the wheels Done! Now to cannibalise and make better use of a cheep clothes rail! A few zip ties and I was ready to test fit my new telescopic tubes. Tubes trimmed and bolts fitted to the inner tubes to stop them being fully extractable Next up. Fitting some pipe insulation foam to prevent the padding which sits under the lining from catching the telescope mechanism. Plenty of hot glue and a bit of e6000 and it's done! A fully functional telescopic handle. All for less than £10. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  14. That's the best way. I certainly needed the advice and help from others on my build. You'll get there bud. Keep up the good work ! Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  15. Well said number 1! Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  16. Ross. As you know, I love your armour! I purchased a kit from Ross mid last year, it arrived in no time! Communication and customer service is at the top of his list. I guess he knows the anxiety involved when you lay money out and wonder not only what you're going to get, but if, and when. You will not be disappointed! I personally would, have, and still do, recommend that if you are going to buy any armour, from anyone, get it from Ross. Not only does he produce a high quality kit, he will always be there to answer any questions and support you in your build. There are tutorial videos he has produced in order to ease the build process. I would strongly recommend Ross as your new vendor. I'm happy to answer any questions regarding quality, support, and service. Regards Marc ( 2nd RWA Centurion in the WORLD!) Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  17. Do you have any pics from behind? First thought, if you have installed strapping to the front and back plate, would be to extend the elastic shoulder straps in order to allow the chest plate to drop. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  18. Ok, so I got sick of my bolt lever snapping off. I decided to take action. I trimmed down a small spring, filled the hole on the bolt and drilled it out. Replaced the post with the spring. A little tidying up needed, but it seems to do the job! Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  19. Ok so I think I'm pretty much done. Snaps hold the velvet in key areas supported by velcro all around the rim. This way it's fully removable in order to clean. Some areas look a bit rough in my opinion. But that's due to the stitching by hand. Elastic holds the blaster in place. I do however intend on improving the security of this by utilising some foam in the future. Clips and elastic hold the torso and limbs in place along with a small pouch for the soft parts. Did I say I was done? No, I still need to sort a case for my electronics and repair kit. Then I'm done... ...for now!
  20. Some white spirit on a q tip will remove the excess paint buddy. Here's my lid and how the teeth look[emoji3]
  21. Looks fine to me. Gappy ears are screen accurate. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
