  1. I heart that the Jessica jones eye roll is the image tapatalk uses as a teaser. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I'm super worried you will need our help putting it together. Noob! -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Nope. I've done quite a few holsters like this for every type of blaster but a real sterling. And my holster is heavy (thanks Gaz) too. I don't know how many troops I have with snaps but it's maybe 3 years worth. Use tandy snaps not dritz and you'll be fine. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I wonder if we could install a new editor on this version of ipb. To the todo list! -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. For me chicago screws are a total pain in the an impolite person having to screw them on and stuff. They are also too big a diameter IMHO on the outside of the belt. Also the canvas will not hold up to the chicago screws spinning around and wear over time. I do not recommend them for a holster. What I do recommend is riveting snaps onto the belt. They're much more durable and repeatable than chicago screws with a bonus: more accurate. Here is how the UKG guys do it: I did it a little differently on the belt: Belt front where you can see which direction I went in with the pop rivet: Belt backside: Snaps on holster straps. -Eric
  6. ^this Also Clamps does a cool thing with his: http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/29342-chest-mount-for-the-aker/?p=374147 -Eric
  7. Truth. Or just use the more accurate lighter colored ones The CRL is vague when it says they must "obscure your eyes". Heh. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Yep. See above. That is where mine sits. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Yep. We maintain and update this list still -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. It's in the potential events area of the neg forums. I expect it to move to confirmed early this week. It's scheduled for 1/16 There also a hockey game in the works in Lowell on 1/23. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Do you Ace hardware up there in the great white north? They have springs that will work if you stretch them out a bit. -Eric
  12. You can send Troopermaster (Paul) a private forum message and ask him: http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/user/76-troopermaster/ -Eric
  13. Greetings from Watertown MA I see you've got a mentor on the NEG forums already and our CO is in the town next to you. But please let us know here, where the stormtrooper experts commune, how we can help you decide what armor to buy. Feel free to sign up to help wrangle at one of our upcoming troops. We always need the helmet and its a good way to not only meet some fellow nerds, but see some costumes up close and personal. Welcome to the FISD! -Eric
  14. Here are our costume requirements for your basic stormtrooper: http://www.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_anh_stunt It states that an FX helmet may not be used for a new approval. Additionally it says: Note: The helmet is accurate in detail and proportion to official references. Many commercially available helmets or those considered disproportionate in size or shape are ineligible. -Eric
  15. I have no idea. Mine sits behind my chest plate to be heard by the person I'm speaking to. Also being tall it's right at ear level for everyone else. Heh heh. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I say louder is better. Or at least the option to be louder. There will be a time when you want louder than the 10w can provide. I rock the 12w but I also like to be annoyingly loud. -Eric
  17. ATA belt, RT shin and TM thigh in the crap lighting of my place. RT shin compared to taller TM shin. Word. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. MTK is whiter than 1.5mm TM. But TM matches ATA pretty well. Both are creamy white. And TM's shins are taller than RT's even. I should take a photo at some point. -Eric
  19. Heh Bender you should make that little faq your forum sig -Eric Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  20. Word. I should have added that I have ATA and TM plastic here too that does not match. They're both too creamy compared to the MTK, RT and WTF (his old batch of abs) I have here that are much more white white. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Hey Jim. It sorta depends on your proportions. I would say that RT-MOD works for someone up to a 46 chest and 40" waist without problem. The RT legs work well for 34" inseam. TM's shins are longer but a different color plastic. Have you thought about doing a Vader? And TyWebb is an imposing TD for sure. I can't wait to finish my sandie this year so we can tromp around and loom over people. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Yep. Pretty darn close in the lighting of my apartment at least. Trooperbay's plastic bicep and RT mod shin in the crappy photo. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. That'll do just fine. Bless your heart. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
