  1. I have not signed in here in a long while as i havent had a TK for a bit and am mostly engulfed in Boba Fett stuff....but i heard this news and i had to come here to say how much of a great guy Terrell was. Iv'e spoken with him countless times about armor, and Star Wars in general and even worked with him for a bit building his kits for members here. I only met him in person once at Celebration V i think it was. He was a true gentleman and it was great to talk with him in person that day. He will be sorely missed in the community. He was by far, one of the great ones. Gone way too soon. Buckets off for a more than great trooper
  2. 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.
  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. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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!
  10. 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
  11. Well i had a little wrench in the machine and had to sell the AM2 before i even built it... but thats ok. My buddy Walt hooked me up with a fresh set of the white stuff which will be here very soon..and i can get back on track!
  12. What Karin said! For basic approval though, i dont think it matters, but id try to keep it at an Inch or less
  13. thanks guys...i gotta get some pics up, but i have received my AM2 kit and started the trimming on it. Nothing assembled yet, but i did the rough trimming on everything. Im building an ATA suit for a buddy of mine as well so im trying to do them at the same time. I'll get pics up as soon as i can!
