  1. You're totally right. The Sauters run a great business with solid customer service. As an active member, Jim goes out of his way to take care of his legion brothers and sisters. -Eric
  2. Aha. I see. What then would be the plan to "fix" this? A notch shim? Wouldn't that look weirder than the notch as is? -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Is there a photo of the AP notch in question someone can point me to? Thanks, -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. With the LMO's approval I changed the wording of the CRL (Morten you were cc'd): It went from: There shall be a single raised vertical strip running from toe to tongue, approximately 1/3 the width of the shoe. To: There shall be a single raised vertical strip running from toe to tongue across the top of the boot. It is now hopefully GML-proof. -Eric
  5. The Legion is a-changing and maybe not for the better. That's a much bigger conversation to be had amongst a smaller group of people. -Eric
  6. I see. So the issue is that I was stupid enough to put something too subjective as "1/3 the width." GMLs these days bring out their vernier calipers to ensure anything called out in the CRL with a measurement is correct. The local GML system has too many flaws and the current GML culture cannot be loosened up. That means the onus is on the dets to go out of their way to write their CRLs to be picky and strict GML proof. I will let the LMO that I'm changing that CRL wording because GMLs will not display the sense enough to allow a little leeway in their approvals. -Eric
  7. Does someone have a photo of the boots that someone is saying aren't approvable? -Eric
  8. Guys? Do one of a few things: - Stop airing your personal stuff on the forum - Stop communicating all together - Use PM or email Either way any more posting of this petty squabble will incur punitive measures. This is my last warning. Thanks. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I think I deleted most of the multiple posts. That sometimes happens when you're on a slow connection. Not sure why it did for those folks this time. Like Ralf said... Not to be a dick... this hobby isn't exactly suited for anyone on a budget. Even an officer could run you a lot once you find the right boots for it. There are lots of other options besides Anovos out there for a TK but you're still going to spend cash on it no matter what you do. -Eric
  10. Hey guys... take this to PM. The open forum is no place to air personal or business grievances, We also won't tolerate name calling. Tone it down, keep it positive and take it to PM. Maybe post a photo of a funny cat meme or a huggable puppy instead of attacking each other? -Eric
  11. Yeah most of the stuffs happen on their forums not Facebook. I used to live Big Island and had to fly to troop much less get help -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Aloha Desert octopus and e komo Mai. I would reach out to the nerds of the Pacific Outpost for their help. Http://pac501.net What island are you on? -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Take a look at the reference galleries for snap placement. Measurements may not work since RT is bigger than most armor. I always leave the shoulder bridge glueing to last to get the right placement. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. My suggestion is to compare the costume requirement pages: http://www.501st.com/databank/Costuming:FISD_CRL That may be a good way to see the differences. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Yep. I gave her text. I intend to hack it up in the next day or do. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Paul: Yes. I prefer the 12w version myself. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. We are so stoked for another EIB in New England. Good luck but you don't need it. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Please arrive March 1... please arrive March 1.. .please arrive March 1. I will post web stats about a month or so after the first wave hits. Their has already been a huge uptick in site usage this winter. It was already on the rise since Celebration. -Eric
  19. 2051 replies to this topic. I need to go look and see if this is the most responded to thread. 2051 posts of... so very little. I love you guys/gals. And I am terrified for the day that people start receiving their kits. Our poor web server! -Eric
  20. Referencing screen used suits is the best way to go for this stuff rather than people's build threads. The photo references menu item at the top of your screen is where to find them. Here are the three key ones: And here is a photo of the front of a thigh from one of them: I wouldn't modify much of anything until you get into the suit and maybe troop a little. if I understand your issue you may need to put kidney/butt elastic on the extreme ends of your butt plate. But please don't heat anything up yet. The on screen TK's belts went across their kidney. Our RT suits end up kinda splitting the differences between the kidney and butt if not a lot on the butt. That's just how things line up. You can play with some velcro on the belt and at the top of the butt plate to see if you lock everything in place. That's what I did at least, but I don't have a flaring an impolite person problem. Absolutely. The biggest reason to do it is for repeatability. It's nice when your forearms end up in the same place every time. For me that is critical so I avoid armor bites on either end of the forearm when it is strapped and sitting happy. Or having it slide up toward my elbow and my glove pops out. Most annoying. The screen used straps were offset and 2" wide (I like 1.5" myself): Check out this link for strapping sizes, colors etc. Bookmark it! http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/26477-what-we-know-about-strapping-snaps-rivets-etc/ To get a better blaster shot at the chicken. Yes! The CRL says the forearms must be closed it does not say they need to be glued. That item in there isn't about screen accuracy it was about all the people with FX armor who had big open slits on their forearms. Just be sure to use the thinnest velcro you can find so no one can see it. I had to buy a few different brands before I found one that worked. -Eric
