    Hello from Pittsburgh

    Welcome Shawn. Glad you are already started the process and awaiting the BBB. You are in great hands to build your armor with so many experienced builders here. Jus keep reading up, plan the build as best as you can so you build with enough confident and give yourself time to review and ask questions before doing the stuff that you might have reservations about. Great having you aboard and best of luck with your armor build when the kit arrives. Don’t forget, ask away in the meantime as well. Also seriously consider building your armor towards EIB and Centurion standards so you don’t have go back and change things later on if you decide to apply for those levels.
  2. Looking sweet! The thinner wires as Christian recommended look much better too. Sometimes just a slight shift in size/scale can make the difference.

    Wow, 17yrs old and set on a TK. Great to hear and jealous . I had a simple Vader helmet bAck in high school that was a decoration mostly, that was 1992/93. Didn’t really get serious to dive in until 2012 . Lots of fun awaits you , getting started young is fantastic. Best of luck on your way to join the ranks. Ask away and keep reading up.

    The BlastFX kit is spectacular! that is going to light up your blaster like a Christmas tree! The scope display never fails to impress me as well. I told Paul he hit a grand slam when he added that to the kit! It added new purpose and meaning to making my hollow scope kits! Keep up the amazing work!
  6. Capacitors looking good. I found them to be the most fun for this part. I had never worked on anything that small model wise so it was a challenge to get it all looking as it should. You are on your way! Coming together and your care for all the details is showing!
  7. Wow, the 3D scope and counter look amazing. Nice work on those. The speaker holes on the counter will really help when you get the speaker in there.

    Thanks. Yes you can use the green stuff to get the knurling pattern on there. I think I tried heating the tool handle I was using and heat press it into the pvc plastic. Fuzzy on my memory there. I think it could work using the green stuff on the aluminum but was t sure if it would hold permanently. Now thinking about it, I think would be okay. I bought the over strip at a local home center. I think it is generally used fir some window framing here or something like that. It’s easy to cut and file to shape. If you need any, I can mail you some pieces.
  10. Hi. Could you help me?

    is this type of knee pad mounting is allowed?

    I tried to salvage the doopy end clip T section but opted to make a new one with some PVC plastic. I think I even made one out of aluminum but opted not use it as I could not apply the knurling pattern on it as I wanted.

    Excellent work on the scope. Yes, drilling the holes out can cause some problems if done without care. Little room for mistakes when working with small delicate parts. Glad to hear the manual helped. The rubber rings are a great idea to hold the small lens in place. Great job adding that. I finally got an order of o rings now to supply with my kits. Not sure if they still need to be glued in placed to hold the lens but from my testing them out they hold the lens nice enough.
