  1. I'm wondering what Gaz's take on these S-trims I know he has opinions. -Eric
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. I'll need to get my mannequin to join first. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 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
  10. Has anyone seen the latest entry on the Legion blog thing on the home page? Look who it is but our very own Clint Randall! Nicely done dude. -Eric
  11. You mean all of the parts... except the TD end caps and control panel -Eric
  12. Also why the heck is the thermal det control panel and the end caps the only thing trimmed in the kit? -Eric
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. Maybe it's just the Torontoites then. Gross dude. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Oops. And I thought I finally found a use for this Molsen Canadian. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. You can? Are you in my house? Speaking of smells. This Anovos kit smells of burnt abs. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Lol! It's a Hawaiian outrigger canoe racing paddle. As an aside... You sure got a pretty mouth. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Eh? Is there a banjo in the photo somewhere? -Eric
  21. After finally getting home from work travel I am now ready to deal with this Anovos purchase. Why did I buy this? Because $350 seemed too good to be true. Also I like building armor. WIll it fit me? NFW. What the hell will I do with it? I think it is bound for a mannequin. Or maybe sell it locally to someone who really needs it. Will my whole build thread consist of asking myself questions and then answering them? Quite possibly. I'm going to open the box now and start trimming. -Eric
  22. Heh. I just declined the nomination for LCO Yikes man. -Eric
