  1. It is difficult to remove super glue from armor. That's why I prefer to use a rubber-based glue like E6000. Acetone is often used to remove super glue, but this WILL melt plastic. Do *NOT* use on armor. Hot water is a possible method. Be careful, though. You don't want to warp the plastic. I have previously used isopropyl alcohol with some luck. It is a solvent, and doesn't (shouldn't) melt the plastic. Try it on a safe spot first just to make sure. You'll also have to pry and scrape and work it. Just take your time. Oh, and as for extra cover strips, you could get this from many suppliers. I'm sure WTF have them if you ask, but it's just flat white ABS, not specific to the maker. I got mine from Trooperbay, but any smooth white ABS sheet with the correct thickness will suffice. Check your local hobby shop, hardware store, Amazon/Ebay.

  4. How do we count multi-day events? Do we count a two-day event as two troops?
  5. Haha, thanks! But it was a bit difficult to tighten the belt without a helper. Not 100 % imperial standard... That bottle had to be a Jedi or something. I swear, I had it right in my scope!
  6. I just did the bottle cap challenge. I think I did pretty well... What do you guys think?
  7. Flat lenses are approvable according to the CRL: http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_anh_hero If you are aiming for Expert Infantry or Centurion, though, you'll need bubble lenses.
  8. Hi, Andrew! Welcome Which TK version are you going for?
  9. Good work so far! If you have much return edge, you can trim some of that. But I wouldn't shorten the biceps just jet. Like others have pointed out, it looks like the shoulder bells are the culprits, not the biceps themself. You want the bells almost touching the shoulder ridge. This will force them a bit higher, making more room for the biceps. (This also helps you if you are aiming for Centurion. The edge of the bells should lie mostly flush with the edge of the chest, with minimal gap.) Also thighten the shoulder bell straps holding the biceps. Depending on the sice and shape of the biceps, the straps should almost be in tension when not in use. This should force the biceps to ride higher and fit better. Some troopers also have an additional hidden strap inside the bells connecting to the top of the biceps. It makes it a bit more cumbersome to put on and take off, but will keep everything in place while trooping.
  10. Wow, look at that shiny faceplate! You've made a good start. Keep it up!

  12. Thanks Tony! That's awesome to hear I've already started with the abdomen and chestplate. There is some slack in the strapping due to wear and tear, so I have tightened the chest straps and made the chest overlap more. The ab and kidney also aligns better, but I'm not 100 % happy yet. More work is needed. I will also look into your other suggestions. Not sure about the thighs, though. They have somehow shrunk since building them. I'm not sure how -- it is definitely not related to cake each Friday at work -- but they don't fit me as well as they used to.
