  1. Absolutely a brilliant piece of ink thumbs up! :-)
  2. Nice!...the scuffing will come automatically when you start trooping
  3. roger, roger...I will try and look for som accurate boots for you...what is your budget?
  4. A minor question: how small are your feet again?. Jodphur/chelseas do come in womens sizes.....
  5. Niiice ... Looking forward to it Tim.Things are good, 1/3 of my tour to go, 4 weeks till my last R&R.....home by 8 July......(hopefully).... And you?
  6. Nice tshirt, and great newsletter.....we should up the ante and try and get more EI......
  7. Yes they are not cheap, but they are handcrafted, and the most accurate there are, except the originals. You can often find them on ebay.co.uk used in very good condition, at around 40-50 pounds sterling.....
  8. they look quite good and accurate..looking forward to seeing the result
  9. Here is my opinion: They will get you through initial aceptance, maybe to EIB, but I am pretty confident that you will not get CEN certification with these, because overall they are not that accurate, and CEN is all about being accurate . I have said it on many an occasion: I suggest that one pays the extra buck/dollar/pound to get a pair of proper boots, that will last you a lifetime, are good to walk in (you spend quite a lot of hours on your feet while trooping), and are very accuarte at the same time (I have made a thread about it). A lot of people are hung up on TKBoots, and I am not trying to talk bad about them, but they are really not that accurate IMO. White leather and white elasticband instead of dyed white, plastic soles instead of leather...I would choose Loakes 290 or similar any day. You can use either acetone or painthinner, but like I told you in the PM, I advise not to scub, sand or anything like that, as it will kill the leather.
  10. Well I stand corrected then....
  11. Its ebay...... I would stay clear and go for some of the vetted armourmakers here on FISD......
  12. Nope, no good..., blank leather, additional stitching on the front....if they will get you through basic approval I am unsure, but. i doubt it.....
  13. Well, judging from this pic, unfortunately the heel is too high, and the elastic band is covered with leather. Whether it is showstopper for basic approval I am unsure, but quite confident that they wont be up to EIB or CEN standards......
  14. Try and get in touch with him via his ebay.co.uk email, that is how I got mine:)
  15. That is truly a magnificent build/mod...makes my own look like a kindergarten project.....hats off (ausgeseichnet!)..
  16. I kind of reasoned that I was misunderstood ........so am I ..and seeing your artoo naturally;)
  17. hey..I was referring to having a TK (myself) inked on the other side of my back......not building a TK...I had mine greenlighted in september.....sorry that it was unclear. The TK work will be needlework ....well looking forward to pics of artoo then...
  18. U are welcome..... And I totally follow you..I cannot wait till my ToD ends in July so that the work on my TK can commence......Do you have other pics of the ones you have, I mean close up s?
