  1. On the knee pack... just go right to the edge and make sure its flat without any return on it at all and you'll be good to go. If the curve looks weird and not tangential just copy the radius of the other side and redraw it to cut again. Just take of minimal plastic to achieve the curve. -Eric
  2. Oddly enough this is basically my last piece. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yo. Is that your actual undersuit? I suggest getting some spandexy compression gear and trying it on with it to see how it fits and where it pinches. You stuff looks a little baggy. You side gaps may even come in a little too. -Eric
  4. Gordo: I am an an impolite person for totally spacing out on your question. To be fair though, I was out of the country. But I just plain forgot. (psst Heather's kidney plate is upside down) -Eric
  5. I'll be done before a certain Jawa we know that's for sure. As soon as I find my calipers I'll measure for you. Really... I have no idea where they are. It feels about the same as my TM... but thinner than my RT... but not too thin as some people are whining about. -Eric
  6. Score and snap baby! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. 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
  8. All, Paul (Daetrin) has dropped out of the race making Tim Waychoff (TK-51878) Dark CMF our new Detachment Leader for 2016 (our 10 year anniversary)! Please join me in congratulating him and wish him well in his new position. Here's to an amazing year for FISD and Stormtroopers everywhere. -Eric
  9. 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
  10. I'm wondering what Gaz's take on these S-trims I know he has opinions. -Eric
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. I'll need to get my mannequin to join first. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. You mean all of the parts... except the TD end caps and control panel -Eric
  21. Also why the heck is the thermal det control panel and the end caps the only thing trimmed in the kit? -Eric
  22. 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
