  1. This is the best tutorial I have come across for ears. Thanks for sharing.
  2. Looks good. I have the same rivets and I'm about to do the same thing. Haha
  3. Thank you! I was about to nuts trying to get these snaps to roll down straight.
  4. Thanks for the heads up. You are a true scholar sir. [emoji3]
  5. Thanks Joseph.I just bought a heat gun for another project. I will test it on some scrap ABS first. So after you heat them up you let them cool on their own?
  6. As the title indicates I am working on ATA armor and I have the shins nearly finished. I am test fitting them now and they close well and can be held closed with tape. But I am nervous because they are in constant compression when closed that I will have problems with them comining apart when walking or inconveniently in the middle of a troop. What can I do to fix this? I have seen some builders use boiling water but I have seen good and terrible things happen because of it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
  7. Remarkable work! I'm continually amazed by the talent and determination of this community.
  8. Much of the 3D printed work out there does not look this good. Stunning work!
  9. Why does the wicked witch music from wizard of oz play in my head when I see this?
  10. I just ordered some. I will post again once they arrive.
  11. The wonky or crooked look may be accurate depending on what portion of helmet in the Lucasfilm archive they are trying to replicate. Because every suit and helmet has minor variations I think they replicated portions of suits and helmets to capture the asymmetry as described on their site. The attached photo is the back of a sandtrooper helmet from the archives that has the wonky or crooked back.
  12. Congratulations. You may want to revisit the ears on your helmet. They look a little thick.
