  1. Hi there! It's finally time for me to build my a femtrooper armor. I'm doing this for my beautiful girlfriend, @Vicky_Velocipanda. She recieved the BBB yesterday (nov. 16th) and we started right off with trimming and assembling the helmet. Here's the progress so far. Unpacking the BBB... trimming the ears... trimming the rest of the helmet... and assembling it: We will trim the eyes and teeth later today and document it. Afterwards I started trimming the backplate and then... well just went on. So this is what we've roughly trimmed now: Vicky will modify these boots to fit the CRL. The next step is trimming the legs and arms. Is my assumption correct, that we're supposed to use the butt joint method here with an inverted coverstripe? (on the inside instead of outside) Or shall we use the overlap method? p.s.: this thread will be pic heavy.
  2. the helmet looks like it is done by a member of skull garrison. you might have more luck over there: https://www.skullgarrison.com/
  3. sorry for drifting away from the topic. I've hidden the discussion and will talk to phil via PM new wires for the speaker should be easy to get at low or no cost.
  4. mine is already done. I'm trooping with it since a couple of years
  5. I can remember Paul (Troopermaster) said that this shape is actually the more accurate one: But unfortunately I don't know anything about the size. I can measure the size on my Anovos and on my CAP-W for comparison if you'd like.
  6. I will take care of that and move the thread into the right subforum Great choice on the RS kit! it's probably the most accurate option on the market. Looking forward to see more. I also recommend to have look on the build threads Matthew provided!
  7. they work perfectly fine and I'm happy to have tony's speakers in my helmet aswell. But for crowded events where I need a loud voice, I still use the good old Aker MR1505
  8. looking forward to more of that! I got the very same blaster and very same conversion kit Using the blaster especially for events with kids. You can give it away for a photo and don't have to care too much if they drop it. Great to see these conversions are still happening!
  9. This is a picture from a screen used belt. You can see how the elastic strap was cut and glued to the belt for perfect alignment
  10. You can iron the chest plate to get a new return edge after cutting it. Not sure how this type of iron is called, but in germany it's used for plastic foil. I know several members who did that quite successful
  11. Hallo und Herzlich Willkommen! Du hast den kleinen deutschsprachigen Teil hier im Forum gefunden. Wie Joseph schon empfohlen hat, solltest du deinen Status updaten lassen. Danach hast du Zugang zu "internen" Forenbereichen, in denen es z.B. auch Merchandise gibt. Falls du irgendwelche Fragen hast, schieß einfach los! Hier findet man Antworten auf fast alles. Liebe Grüße aus Nürnberg, Danny
  12. I once tried to make a mold for vacuum pulling a helmet myself. Together with a friend I worked weeks on that mold and it would never be perfect. It will be the same with your helmet. You need to find the level on which you're satisfied. It's impossible to get it perfectly done like an original one. So make it as good as it pleases you, nothing more. Hope that helps
  13. Well... there is an original one for sale right now https://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-Ordnance-Optics-4x18-Scope-Hollywood-CA-Oswald-Kennedy-JFK/163621579726?hash=item26189b2bce:g:b4sAAOSw6lJbT3l1&frcectupt=true 600$
  14. I've moved this to the E-11 Discussion section as it doesn't really fit into "technical support"

    I will move this thread to the NCO-Club / Off Topic section as it doesn't really fit into technical support
  16. Exactly. One part is out of brass, the other out of grey plastic. So if you want te be really accurate, you should make grey color look through.
  17. Awesome paint job! Those tube stripes are a hell of a work but it looks more than fine.
  18. congratulations, trooper! looking forward to some amazing troop reports!
  19. Very proud of you! This is why we we do this. It may be hard, but it's worth it and helps the family to get a little of their strength back. Good job, trooper!
  20. The original handle was made of "Bakelit" which is black and glossy. It's not painted, it's just the regular material color. I have some orginial grips here, they look like this: It's more or less glossy. Pretty much scuffed.
  21. Great to see, you've been to an armor party! That's the best way to get some first hand information. Your choice on the armor kit and boots is great. Are you making the canvas belt, holster and neckseal yourself? If you're looking for silicone handplates: @justjoseph63 is making them, just PM him and he'll have more detailled information.
  22. I usually wear some thin silk gloves underneath the rubber gloves Makes it much better during hot summer troops.
  23. Awesome! Looking forward to see some brand new troop reports https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/13-field-training-exercises/
  24. With my old armor kit, I had the cod plate split from the abdomen plate. It's comfortable for when you gotta pee. But that's pretty much it. For height adjustment I'd recommend the more accurate method of cutting the chest plate, like Mathias advised. With my newer armor, I decided to leave it as one piece, for accuracy reasons.
  25. looking forward to that build thread! The capped ABS is really glossy. Most other troopers have more of a creamy off-white look.
