  1. Georgia Garrison command is aware of this. The individual is not a 501st member.
  2. I will say I don't know anything about this gasket run. In fact I don't even know what thread this post came from or who JJ is. There is nothing on the Facebook buidling group in this regards. No mention at all. Also the group is not secret. It's just closed like most groups to allow moderators to approve access so unnecessary posts don't clog up the feed.
  3. Hey everyone. So, I originally wrote this review to bring a positive light to the armor and genuienly help people in this community. Unfortunately it has turned into somewhat of an argument and I don't like the negative light it has created. <br><br><br> I would also like to formally apologize for the mention of the Facebook group we created to further assist builders. It was in no way to detract from the forums or the detachment and was just to let folks know and further help people out. <br><br><br> I really love the FISD and it's very disappointing to s
  4. When you first receive the armor you will want to sand the entire inside with 220 grit sandpaper to remove any fiberglass burs and then wash it out. After that it should no longer be an issue.
  5. A few of us in the Georgia garrison have made a group to mutually share advice and help in building Jim's armor. So if you're working on the armor you can head on over <br><br> <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='https://m.facebook.com/groups/560958490742724?tsid=0.4545358708128333&source=typeahead'>https://m.facebook.com/groups/560958490742724?tsid=0.4545358708128333&source=typeahead</a>

  7. The newer version of the armor looks fantastic. Although I will say even though there are some uneven areas on the earlier kits I don't feel it's *that* bad. The worst of it is really the thighs and the back piece. Other than that everything is very smooth. I'm sure if I wanted to I could resand and get the surface even better.
  8. I had no issue with the surface in regards to approval.
  9. No problem. As far as I know this is the only feasible way to do it and be accurate. An elastic strap would cover the palm and gluing obviously isn't an option due to the rigid guards and fabric gloves.
  10. That's incorrect as I did in fact use Velcro. It is sewn to the top of the gloves and adhered to the bottom of the handguard. It simply had disconnected in the front in the picture. In fact, if viewed more carefully you can see the "hook" velcro on the underside of the handguard is visible. Just a small flub during photographing.
  11. Hello everyone, I don't post nearly as much as I should or used to but I felt I would I would be remiss in my duties not to write a review for this armor. I know alot of folks are either on the fence for this armor or are on the waiting list. Hopefully this will help with that indecision or at the very least offer a solid set of finished pictures and information to the community. This wasn't my first set of armor nor will it be my last. However, after working with ABS all these years it was interesting to broaden my horizons. Here goes... Material: Flexible fibergl
  12. Just wanted to let you guys know Heston is the real deal. I purchased a 501st version blaster from him through Etsy. I bought the unpainted version so I could paint and detail on my own. I received it in perfect condition. Heston will go out of his way to make sure you are taken care of. Rest assured he will deliver on these blasters. Here is my finished version below in which I painted and utilized Germain's decals. Thank you to Germain as well for all his contributions to the blaster's design and offering the decals to the community.
  13. I jumped right into the doopy's back when I did my first E-11. It's great for accuracy at any level. You can build it as is or make it look like a real sterling. Plenty of build threads here to go off of. Just overall a better look than the Hasbro conversion. I built my first with no experience. Just motivation and this community.
  14. Try using a very sharp exacto knife to get underneath the corner carefully. I work with a lot of vinyl stuff all the time and that's usually my go-to for pesky pieces that want to stick to the backing.
  15. I built my Centurion with Mike's armor. I love the armor and the customer service. Can't go wrong there.
