  1. And remember there is no RIGHT way, there is just the way that works for you
  2. With E6000 make sure you rough up both areas with some coarse sandpaper, it will help it to grip too As already stated you need to leave some areas for at least 24 to 48 hours to dry and any areas under any force leave for 72 hours just to be sure. There was also some knock of E6000 glue on the webs at one stage, take a look at this thread
  3. Looking good, a couple of things you may need to adjust that your GML may require Side closer not quite straight. Also there is a big gap from you the bottom of your TD to the armor. Biceps could be rotated, clips at front Good luck with approval, hope to see you with a TKID soon
  4. Nice to see you back at this. I have run into color bleed a couple of times, once was from a microphone which rested against the armor, the rubber sleeve bled into the plastic, the other was some pouch covers which were made in black which also bled into the armor. I found using a good cutting compound managed to buff these marks out. A lot of people speak highly of the Novus Polish. If polish doesn't work you could try a product from Trooperbay called "Armor White" which helps bleach the marks https://www.trooperbay.com/products/trooperbay-armorwhite-plastic-whitening-gel
  5. Congratulations once again trooper, your build thread has been moved out of purgatory
  6. From Battlefront some of the Stormtrooper lines.

  7. Could I suggest perhaps speaking with Bryan @trooper96 who has done some great work with 3D files, he may (or may not) be looking for another challenged as he's exhausted the needs of the E-11's, might be something right up his alley to update/convert
  8. Firstly some helmets are bigger than others. That said I only have fans in my helmet, I use a wired mic, then run the cable down to behind my chest where the aker amp and icomm unit are housed, keeps weight off your helmet which is a must as I have neck issues. My fans use 4 x AA battery packs which fit in nicely on the lower cheeks. Here's a few links showing how others have tackled their helmets Many of us keep the aker and icomm behind the chest, the image below is not mine, I have them tightly together held with elastic with velcro sewn on the back. Also have a small ABS ledge of angled plastic below to stop them falling down. Some use an icomm and hovi tip speakers A few keep them strapped together on their neck
  9. Make sure you sand those rough edges as they can catch on your undersuit when moving
  10. Shouldn't be a hold up at any level, depends how they sit on your arms though, I had to add some foam in between mine and left most of the return edges. I would however try to angle these to match the other side as that square edge will give you some nice armor bites when moving your arms around Screen references have no return edge at all
  11. Looking good, just a few observations. Your knee ammo strip has fallen, this can be a quick fix, add some E6000 behind then life ammo strip upwards and clamp You could also make your forearm gaps match, bring them up a little at the elbow which will give you a little more gap at the wrists, just touching your handplates. Thigh heights different levels. Your helmet is sitting up quite a lot, you may want to try some thinner padding in the top of the helmet, my padding is only 10mm thick and loose foam not firm Drop boxes should align with the ends of the plastic belt section. Shoulder straps on back are not sitting down, a little heat or gently bend with help them lay flat. You may need slightly tighter strapping too, appear they only just meet your backplate but this may just be the image. Here you see how high the helmet sits and you can see your face. If you can't reduce the padding try wearing a balaclava. When taking pictures for GML don't have blaster in holster as it makes the belt droop. Things are slightly different heights in the area image. Just on the side photo you can just see your thigh belt And lastly your ab/kidney sections aren't meeting on the tops and gap on sides. Note drop box out of position. Just some tweaks as we see with some RS builds, once you address these you should be good to go and seek GML approval. Good luck recruit
  12. If you could also add your total troops into your first post heading makes tracking easier Troop log title examples:
