  1. heh ive personally had the opposite problem..my BUTT was too wide LOL. But ive built armor for folks many times before, i would just heat it up and bend it inward to eliminate what you have there.
  2. These look fantastic Mark! I always loved the AP kits and had one back in 2008... but as of more recently i cant fit in them anymore, but this just changed that, so im sure it will benefit many others as well!
  3. i tried acetone to remove some paint from armor once many many moons ago when i was still green...it ruins the armor, keep acetone FAR FAR away from your armor.
  4. Hey Rocky! looking forward to meeting and trooping with ya! I am also in the ECG! Myself and my wife are both on Long Island as well, in Oceanside
  5. have you seen this stuff? I still have yet to try it, but id think it would work better than bondo on plastic. eventually im going to pick some up and try it out.
  6. Ok so i think i got it all covered... Armor/helmet - WTF Blaster - Hyperfirm B grade Holster - Darmin Handplates Karin's authentic, that ive had for like over a year lol Boots - real jodhpurs, black, dying white like the screen used The undersuit i already had, it was one of the last Eastbay ones without the color stitching. Neckseal i already had..i forgot who made it...ive had it for years lol. I have various snaps, clips and strapping/elastic...i think im good Actually..does anyone sell the rubber brow trim and neck trim for the TK helmets? I dont think WTF includes them
  7. Oh NICE! i always loved AP armor! This is a very good thing Cuz, well, i gained a few pounds since i started this trooping thing in 2008 lol.
  8. I just read this entire thread lol This is excellent work. I love seeing how you fabricated everything, you use the same methods i do with the foam and bondo...."old school" haha i love it. The refinements make it even nicer..this is a great looking set of armor bud..helmets off to ya! If you start vac forming them, im in for a set!
  9. Welcome Jay! ...yes...what starsaber25 said..c'mon over to the Empire City Garrison forums!
  10. Thanks Jim! thanks Sam..though i havent been away from trooping, just didnt have a Stormy for a while. I have an ESB Boba Fett, TIE pilot, Gunner and bridge crew
  11. Just because its licensed doesn't mean its accurate. Have you seen the Rubies supreme TK? Licensing has nothing to do with how accurate it is... and also Disney doesn't control the 501st and doesnt make the rules what is clearable, the LMOs and detachment leaders do that. As far as the Anovos being clearable out of the box..id say its just as clearable as any of the other fan made suits, as long as it is assembled properly, and fits you correctly. Basically, just like any other TK suit out there. People have gotten the awful Rubeis cleared as a ROTJ. Took alot of work but its possible. So again, it all depends on the fit/build. EDIT: haha Wyatt beat me to some of my points lol
  12. thanks Terry..this time im not going anywhere lol. You have no idea how upset i was that i had to sell off that last kit...but we were in a jam and unfortunately not having a day job i dont really make enough to cover unexpected bills etc. so it had to go.... BUT here i am...again lol I'll post pics of the brown box when it arrives!
  13. i think that helped tons. Looks much better. Overall i think maybe hey overdid that little bit of wonkyness there... but its not THAT big a deal, especially after seeing what a little trim and touch up paint work can do. I think its fine
