  1. Excellent work to get this done. Looking good and almost ready to start taking out rebels for sure. Detailing the bolt and some weathering can take it even further but you can add that as you go along. Well done and can't wait to see it in action this coming week.
  2. Sorry to hear you are still having issues with that Tino. Hope it gets sorted so you don’t have to keep logging in each day .
  3. Member husky68 (TK-77712) recently tried to update his email info and now says he is locked out and cannot access the forum. Can someone on the tech team investigate what might be the problem? Appreciate any help you can lend to get him back in action here.
  4. Congratulations TK-77712! An honor to have you with us among the ranks. Looking forward to trooping with you very soon! Best of luck and happiness in the Legion!
  5. Awesome work on your armor Robert! I have been following your build journey and know the challenges you were faced with. You haven’t give up and pushed on through to get your armor ready for this stage which is really the best part as it gets you into the legion. Wish you the best of luck with your application and can’t wait to troop with you soon! As mentioned above the forearm trimming will help reduce the bite. If you are apprehensive to take a chunk off right away, I suggest doing it in small stages so you can see if it’s the look you want to keep and also the comfort factor. I did this approach with a few parts of mine and felt more at ease than trimming lots off at one time
  6. Almost there with this. A bit more sanding on some parts to get them to fit, attach and its ready for paint. Keep on pushing forward! The finish line is within sight!
  7. Thank you Joseph for all you have done as XO. Always a true trooper helping us all out and it’s never forgotten. I am happy to hear you will still be on staff so please take your time getting back to things. Life and family first. All the best to you.
  8. Sorry there have not been any updates to post yet. I had issues casting the stock and the end cap without bubbles but think I solved how to do the stock but end cap still needs a bit of tinkering . Also just ordered more resin and silicone to get small parts made. These take time as there are a few with irregular shapes that pose a challenge to cast. My goal is to minimize the seam lines. Hope to have more updates soon for you. Thanks for following this project . Stay tuned !
  9. Thanks Don. Advice always welcome and appreciated. I do coat my molds with baby powder but maybe I am using it too sparingly so I will try and apply it as you mentioned. Cheers!
  10. Thanks Ted. You’re too kind. Yes, certainly. No problem at all to order specific parts. Up close though the stock has lots of tiny air bubbles but easy to fill I think. Hopefully I can get less bubbles next casting. PM here or on FB about which parts you want and I can try casting them up for you soon.
  11. Latest Test Casts- slow progress, no time to work at night much but managed to test the parts seem below. The main stock wishbone frame still has a few trapped air issues but think I can solve that. The end cap was getting me worried as I could not cast one decent one after 4 attempts. Finally figured out a way to get the trapped air out.
  12. Recent Test Castings- Some parts still coming out of the molds a bit rough looking. Grip came out the best so far. End cap had some bubble issues. Bolt is good but wish I molded it so the cocking handle holes were more sunken. They will need to be drilled out. Hope for more to come later this week (folding stock parts) Grip- Grip with Trigger assembly- Bolt, Magazine Housing and magazine Front nozzle section and end cap
  13. Welcome aboard Albert! Looking forward to see a build thread if you get one started. Be sure to check out the build threads and ask questions when you need to. Some armor kits have minor differences from other makers so its a good idea to check out builds with the same armor to see how people tackled things. I followed a few RS armor builds when I built mine as there were a few concerns I had when trimming it and assembling. It helped to consult with RS TKs and builders to relieve some of the concerns I had at the time. Best of luck on your TK journey!
  14. Looks like the real deal! Nice paint work!
