    Correct S-trim for my Anovos Helmet

    Stop hiding this post! LOL Ok... so Paul's comment wasn't exactly helpful. So if the rounded one that everyone uses is wrong... what is right? Pointing out a failure without suggesting the right way to do it is just nitpicking. Also... we have tons of Centurions already approved with the that very s-trim that no one will ever see. No fan is every going to come up and say "Dude your s-trim is weird looking!" My issue with the anovos s-trim is that I think it is too wide seeming. Maybe I'm wrong. Here TM/Paul's S-trim that we're going to assume is accurate because he's Paul: Here is anovos: Anovos: ATA (which I use on all of my recent buckets including WTF/Gino): So... my point is... who cares if Anovos or Trooperbay's or ATA's S-trim is a little off. Do you think it looks good? That's all that really matters. -Eric

    Paul? Do you have know US source for more accurate trim? Can I assume your s trim is accurate? I can go take a photo of it if it is. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I'm wondering what Gaz's take on these S-trims I know he has opinions. -Eric

    Finishing a Mitcheg1 Helmet

    Wow. Dude. So you hand painted the black? With a brush? Do you have any photos of how did you masked off the black? I'm such a terrible painter I've been paralyzed and have done nothing with my bucket -Eric

    Vern: This link had all the information you needed to accept the nomination: http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/35410-legion-elections-2016-timeframe/ Mark posts the same thing every year in the same place like clockwork. I'm sorry you missed the window to accept. -Eric

    I sent a text message the other day and reflexively signed my name. My fingers just do it. I'll start taking photos as soon as I start glueing. -Eric

    I need to stop drinking beer! I could probably shim the sides because beer gut but I think it would look silly on my frame. I could make it work I'm sure but I think most of the parts are too small for me... like most of the torso... maybe the thighs... and the shins may not close. Also the shins are too short and you would see a ton of black undersuit in the legs. RT's shins are longer... TM's shins are even longer than RT's I are Vader sized. -Eric
  10. I would recommend elastic (not webbing) and snaps every time over the original strapping. Especially if you have a body type of anything other than the guys who originally wore the armor. -Eric
  11. Sometimes I give my stuff to a scout trooper and hope he/she isn't too smug about having pockets. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Return Edge sizes

    Take a look at our reference gallery (see top menu of this site) for the lucasfilm archives or the RS Props suit. There are three albums in there of actual screen used armor. Those are the best references for how big return edges should be. The anovos return edges are indeed a bit extreme IMHO. Don't be a dick. -Eric

    You mean all of the parts... except the TD end caps and control panel -Eric

    Also why the heck is the thermal det control panel and the end caps the only thing trimmed in the kit? -Eric

    I'm just a couple shoulder bridges and a sniper knee away from being fully trimmed. I scored and snapped so there will be minimal sanding/dremeling to clean up. Except for two bicep openings where I used my lexan scissors. The scissor snips are faster but require way more work (for me at least) to clean up compared to scoring and snapping. The one thing to note is that the thermal detonator is pretty much the only accurate one out there except for maybe TM or RS (I'm assuming RS although I've never noticed their TD.) Here is the anovos next to my sexy TM thermal det: It's all the right diameter and the control panel is pretty spot on. Suck it ATA, AP, WTF, MTK etc... thermal detonators! -Eric

    The Force Awakens Stormtrooper CRL

    This will be up to the new DL but the only thing I can see changing eventually is some wording in the biceps to allow them to have a seam and open up like the screen used ones. But that won't preclude closed seamless biceps. You'll have to wait until March to see if that change goes through when the new DL's term starts. -Eric

    Ya know I've been up there a few times and never had a craft beer that floated my boat. Honestly the trimming will only be finished tonight under the influence of bourbon. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
