  1. Any update on this? I've been following the progress and was curious as to how the app was moving along? I'm thinking about buying a splitter to try this with my aker...
  2. I wish I had found this site long ago... This site has just about every frame from all of the star wars movies as a high res screen cap. http://starwarsscreencaps.com/ I would grab and "save as" reference material you want before its gone... Please move this post if it belows in another location for me... TD-13167
  3. R4ZORBL4DE... Did you take a little off the top of the thighs? If so, did you go to the trouble of adding a new return edge? Mine are a bit long and I need to trim them.
  4. I picked up some today at a brick and mortar Tandy store and they all have "Tandy" on them. I guess there are variations...
  5. Do all of the line 24 Snaps have the tandy logo on them. I bought some off of Amazon and they don't have the logo and question if they are legit...
  6. Hey troopers - I'm an aspiring 501st member (hopefully done building in the next month). I'm also an alumni of the Delta Tau Delta Fraternity (I'm in my 40s now) but I write articles for the fraternity magazine from time to time. I suggested that the magazine profile members of the fraternity who are in the 501st to highlight the organization and talk about the volunteer and charity work the 501st does. If you are or if you know of any members of the 501st who are also brothers of Delta Tau Delta, please let me know. Thanks, Jeff
  7. I'm going to have to use 2" cover strips in the back and trim the back top of thigh (under my butt) to get them to sit and fit correctly. I could taper the rear cover strips maybe to close the armor near the knee better if that is best.
  8. I'm going to go ahead and trim and glue the fronts and post some pics of how they sit.
  9. Test fit of my ATA thighs shows that the bottom of the thigh armor sits mid knee cap. I think the problem is that the upper rear of the thigh hits my butt. Should I try to trim the upper rear of the thigh to allow it to move up a bit? My concern is that if I do this the front peaks of the thigh will then be too high and I'll have to try to tim and shape them as well. I haven't trimmed or glued the thighs yet, this is a test fit putting them together with tape.
  10. Thanks. I can print the picture to scale and cut one out of a few layers of styrene...
  11. If someone has an unassembled Doopy kit could you post a top view of the trigger with a ruler in the picture for me? During all of the painting and assembly I've lost the trigger for my kit and am going to have to make one... Thanks
  12. It's been about 5 weeks since my last email so I'll hit him up. Thanks.
  13. I've been on the list since end of April and don't want to harass him about it. Just wondering if anyone has received an order and how long they were on the list. The waiting is the hardest part.
