  1. Congrats on becoming an official trooper! Always good to have more Aussies here at the FISD As Glen pointed out, it's not too much work to mod up a suit if you want to take accuracy to the next level (I managed to drag an FX kit up to EI standard) You'll possibly find yourself doing some mods after the first few troops, for comfort and increased reliability (unless of course you nailed it right off the bat) Anyhow, Enjoy that first troop, and many more to come! Hope to work alongside you some day, if you come over to KnightFall territory in the future
  2. Oh, re the boots- you can wear them into the water, but you'll want to dry them out properly to avoid damage. To do this, stuff some balls of crumpled newspaper into them to hold their shape, and change the newspaper over every 20-30 minutes (it will draw water out of the boots) until they're dry again. All my strapping was glued with E-6000, and was completely unaffected (I was probably in the water for at least 15 minutes). Trooperbay decals were also unaffected by the water/chlorine. The only time my helmet got water INTO it was when I tried to swim freestyle. The stuff rushes in through the teeth right at your face, and if you try to turn your head to breathe like you would normally swimming freestyle, it's like the spin cycle on a washing machine. I thought it was pretty funny, but it was also a bit stressful. (bear in mind I also found it funny the time my gf electrocuted me as a practical joke) I would recommend survival stroke or breast stroke, it's less stress-y.
  3. It's really weird science to swim in. Your suit and boots and holster get WAY waterlogged and try to weigh you down, but the air bubbles trapped in the plastic try to keep you afloat. Keep in mind, I may or may not be a REALLY strong swimmer (I don't even know). I hate to be serious, but I gotta go- I have a drummer to jam with and studio stuff to set up... I will tell more tomorrow.
  4. I don't know about this Darth Furious guy, but I've done it. I've posted at least one photo of it before, I'll dig 'em out...
  5. Yes! Sell the missus to get a better blaster! Sent from The bank, using money I got from pawning in my cat
  6. Totally meant to be there (on Stunt lids, anyhow), check out starwarshelmets.com and it will become most overwhelmingly familiar! I love it, always reminds me of this guy. Sent from My police badge, using skills I learned during a solid weekend of training
  7. *recast, never recasted inb4 the Grammer Nazis for the win!!!!!!!!¡!! So this armour... seems less than legit, just maybe. Sent from My raised eyebrow using skepticism
  8. actually, ignore that last post, I just realised Dude, whoa Sent from Low Earth Orbit using Solvent fumes as well
  9. but E-6000 is so easy to remove (you can spit-and-polish it off), why would you even bother to use solvents? Sent from So high I can see my house from up here using E-6000 fumes
  10. This one time, at band camp, someone asked me just how strong E-6000 is, and I was all liek, "Dude, just use it in a highly enclosed space with no ventilation, you won't even know how strong that stuff is!" He took my advice, and HIS MIND WAS BLOWN!
  11. oh good, the egg-snatchers fixed this thread for me and ended my confusion not about the colours thing I was terribly confused as to why such a serious question had been filed under off-topic
  12. You may love love Grumpy Cat, but Grumpy Cat hates you and wants you to DIE. Slowly. Don't take it personally though, Grumpy Cat feels that way about everybody. I probably would too, if my owners named me TARDer Sauce.
  13. BTW, I think you're right These "sent from" jokes are getting WAY out of control Sent from Hell, where I sold my soul to Satan in exchange for an endless supply of "sent from" jokes
