  1. Very thorough, Nate! This will be a good resource for others. Thanks for making it sound like I'm just such a good brother I flew out there just for an armor party and nothing else! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Can I ask how tall your son is? Mine is 10, too, but I was worried he'd be too tall for it. Maybe he's tall for his age, I really don't know. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Hi everyone -- I suppose this is goodbye (because I'm now sandy lol). Just kidding. Thanks once again everyone for the comments and tips and support while building out my sandtrooper. I just got approved! TD20290! For anyone interested, I secured TD20290.com, ported my blog over there, and finished up the posts taking it all the way to the end. I have my first troop tomorrow for a 4th of July parade in Atlanta! http://td20290.com

  5. Thanks Haui and Steve! Thanks Rick! I certainly can't take credit for the magnets though. Got the idea from others here but yeah, not sure how anyone would build a suit without them.
  6. Hello all, I've been documenting my MTK build on a blog. It requires an additional click to get to it from here but the audience of my write-up includes family members and such that aren't members of FISD. Hope that doesn't deter too many folks from heading over there and then giving some feedback here. I've been documenting how this whole thing began for me, quirks of the armor, and mistakes I've made and learned from. As I progress in the journey and the blog I'll update this thread. I will be taking this thing all the way to TD but so far I've not documented the TD portions of the journey so hopefully people here get some benefit from my experiences. Here's the link: http://blog.panzainteractive.com Thanks for looking!

  8. Wow you are super nice to those little brothers! Looks like a good kit. How are you doing the tube stripes? Do the decals fit? Hand painting? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. AWESOME! I love ATA helmets. I have built 3 of them. For some tips on things to look out for check out my "lessons learned" build here: http://blog.panzainteractive.com/?p=146 Just don't cut as much off as it looks like you should. Don't hesitate to ask any questions!
  10. Yeah these boards don't allow much space for photos. So you have to upload somewhere else (I chose flickr) and then you can link to those photos. When adding media to these boards you can choose to add it from a URL. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Hey Jaren -- welcome! Good to see another MTK. Not many of us on here. FYI myself and bzb (Bobby) have MTK. He has a good build thread up and even his centurion application. Those have been great references for me. I'm still working on mine. Will post a build thread when done. don't hesitate to ask any questions via PM, board, whatever! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks for the shout-out Brian! Great start. Like others have said - huge props for getting this far with the coping saw. Yeah, tough to get great accuracy with a jig saw but I cut wide of the cut line and then used rough-tooth files to really eat away at the wood to get back to the line. Can't wait to see the progress.
  13. Thanks folks. Will be careful and do many fittings/measurements before cutting. I have MTK. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hello all - I have a question about how to size the back. On the front there's some leeway to simply overlap the chest/ab piece more for slightly shorter troopers. (right? I know about the trick to cut the cod but I'm not really that short - 5'9"). But what about the back? If I line up the back piece, the kidney piece, and the butt piece and it's too tall then what would I trim? The kidney piece? Maybe I'd trim the bottom of the kidney piece (removing the return edge) but then just cover that with the belt? Thanks for any help --
  15. Cool. Thanks for checking. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
