  1. Chris, very nice to see some more progress! When do you think you’ll go into production? as was mentioned in a msg many months ago, i’m looking to upgrade my TX. I’m interested in an ANH TK in resin or fiberglass/resin combo, one piece if that’s doable. If not, i’ll take separate pieces (ears, front/back sides). Just don’t want it in ABS material. much appreciated! Hope you’re doin’ ok down under!
  2. Welcome Jason! great effort with your ROTK build thus far! Very inspiring! Makes me want to resurrect a v2.0 with my TX Sky bucket this fall.
  3. thanks for your service and personally pointing me in the right direction with a specific part for my costume during my build a few years ago. See ya around!
  4. Welcome Jonathan! This is not an inexpensive hobby. In addition to armor/bucket, you’ll be spending on other materials and accessories as well. check out the PX/Commissary when you can periodically. Forum members sometimes need to get rid of stuff in a hurry. You might get lucky.
  5. Great job! Very creative with using heavy gauge wire for the vocoder!
  6. Some pics of RoS Jet Trooper were posted. https://www.starwars.com/news/d23-expo-2019-jet-trooper-from-star-wars-the-rise-of-skywalker-revealed does anyone have enhanced pics of the jet pack?
  7. Great info. Jeff! I’m working on a clone Airborne now, and I think I’ll be able to carry over some of your strapping methods to my build.
  8. All things made new . . . One of my leg armor started cracking at the edge last summer due to a thigh strapping malfunction that put pressure in the knee area. It wasn't a show stopper in trooping, so I just put up with it past several months. I just recently finished repairing it, so I thought I'd share how I fixed it in case it helps anybody else with a similar type costume. In using the stop-drill method, I drilled a small hole at the end of the crack. Reinforced with some ABS from behind as well as along the ridgeline, so as to prevent another possible crack in other areas. Applied PC-7 epoxy and sanded, then repainted. Thanks for your interest.

  10. Great effort Pam! More EIBs and Centurions on the way on the Peninsula side!
  11. For L2, offhand, look into the Hasbro conversion option or B grades from reputable vendors. short of that, continue to research. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/116-blastech-e11/ Also, try to pay attention to what’s posted in the PX Commissary. You might get lucky. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/41-imperial-commissary-px/ Try to look at EIB submissions and see what other applicants did for their blaster solutions. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/95-expert-infantryman-program/
  12. Sorry for your heartfelt loss. Sympathies to the family.
