  1. I love this because in the film it is shown a stormtrooper getting hit but HIS ARMOR PROTECTED HIM!! Oh gee what a novel idea we have never seen in SW !! ITS ABOUT TIME SOMEONE GOT IT RIGHT!!! Thank you!!! [emoji1303][emoji1303][emoji1303][emoji1303][emoji91][emoji91][emoji91][emoji91][emoji1303][emoji1303][emoji1303][emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Congratulations on a beautiful build. I would suggest you glue a little dark grey foam behind the top of your shin to keep your knee plate from tucking in under your thigh when you walk. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yea I do. But I like that amount. I seem to have stopped the tears by doubling up on the thickness of the plastic and using a hard CA glue and epoxy.
  4. A little update on the crack repair. Epoxy really is not the best glue to use here. I think abs plastic glue (old fashioned plastic model glue) that melts abs would be better as it welds the pieces together. Epoxy just glued the surfaces together and in my case it let go and the strip lifted up on one end. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Looks awesome to me trooper. Good job and good luck in your Centurioness. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I just use an acker voice amp. They are cheap with a crummy speaker and cheap mic. The bad quality makes you sound like a storm trooper. Sounds like an old loudspeaker voice. You don't get the clicks but every time I speak people get a big kick out of it. I spent a long time shopping Amazon and eBay looking for one and finally found one for around 35 bucks. No need to spend 60 on these things. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. That last photo looks like a perfect stormtrooper to me.<br><br> Congrats and welcome to the ranks.
  8. Yup the first photo is correct. Strengthen the joint with an inner strip. Then trim the back of the leg to match your leg diameter. Your outside cover strips must be consistent width all the way down your legs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 20 front 25 back too. Just be consistent all the way down the legs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I also put a very thin square of plastic over the snap. When you want to unsnap them your finger gets under the plastic and the snap pops right off. I only did it in snaps I know I had to undo all the time. It saves from pulling on the elastic which pulls it away from the snap going through it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Starting to get stress cracks along the edges of the arm area of the chest armor. I epoxied a plastic strip along the edge to hold the cracks shut and prevent them from getting longer / more numerous. The extra plastic strip is on the inside of the return edge. E6000 would be too flexible for this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I used E6000 on the drop boxes and strap. No problems for over a year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yea the brow is a bit high in the front better on the sides. Sqr up the teeth a little with a tiny file. Good work! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
