  1. Hi guys, I've been around here for a while, but I haven't had the chance to be on the forums in over 7 months or so. I'm hoping to get back into the hobby and actually get a TK helmet. I snagged a few clones, but like a lot of stuff, got stalled. I hope to get ahold of my local garrisson again (if they'll even talk to me) and see about getting this hobby going again. I'm in Central California, specifically Lodi currently. As always, any help would be awesome! Thanks!
  2. Hey guys I'm finally coming back around to looking at this stuff. Once the helmet itself becomes available I'll look at it. The armor looks good, and by the time money comes around again, the jury should be out on approval.
  3. So is acrylic the way to go? Are water-based paints ideal?
  4. What about the "ready to airbrush" paints that are on the market currently?
  5. What's the cost overall of a finished RS suit anyway?
  6. Hey what would a black bucket like that go for? Can I get a black ATA?
  7. What I like is that it looks decent. It's got a compressor, and much of the basic stuff. If I throw in $30 more, I'll get the cleaning stuff to boot.
  8. Thanks for the info! I'm looking at the Master Airbrush kit on Amazon. Is it a good kit?
  9. Thanks for the tip. I'm looking at getting an ATA bucket, and I want to actually paint the tube stripes on. Is spray paint good to go with here, or is the $70 Amazon kit good?
  10. Hey guys, as the research continues (going on 3 solid months) I wanted opinions on something. How difficult is it to learn to airbrush? Is it worth buying a kit to paint up a bucket, or is good old Krylon the way to go?
  11. My suggestion is to NOT buy armor right away. Wait a bit, and research. There's a lot of options available. I myself haven't bought a set yet, but I'm playing with helmets to get used to how the hobby works. Play around, read, and figure out what works for you. Before I started reading, I didn't know an FX from an AP, from an ATA. Learn, absorb. Welcome by the way.
  12. I myself want to paint my tube stripes on (using the stencil on trooper bay) how can I paint these on, without it coming off?
  13. So I'm going to order an ATA bucket as a "practice" bucket. The buckets are cheap, and available. I'll go with a fully trimmed out AP kit once I have the cash. I want an affordable starter bucket that I can get used to, and one that I can be happy with.
  14. I'm jealous. I'm going to be doing an ATA build as a learning experience, and then buying a finished AP as a display piece.
