  1. I have had a few people in my Garrison copy this idea so I thought I would post it here for FISD members too Do you have an issue with keeping TK shins in place? More specifically stopping the shin armor from moving up and above your boots? I know I did! When I had this problem I investigated a few different options, I first tried the hook velcro on boot & loop velcro on inner shin combo, whilst this did help I found that walking up and down stairs a couple of times was enough for it to come apart. So I've improved on this with a "stirrup" setup.. The following setup has been tested with many troops (and stairs!) and I have had no issues with riding or twisting Here is what I did... I made stirrups for each leg using a length of 1inch wide high density elastic, this was glued and stitched to a 50mm x 50mm square of hook velcro. Then I glued and stitched a 50mm x 50mm square of loop velcro to a piece of nylon strapping the same size. Then glued this into the front of each shin just above the top of the boot line. When attached it looks like this This way you can have a "stirrup" setup but you can also put your boots on first Then attach the velcro before closing your shins as normal The elastic allows for plenty of movement and pulls the shin back into place if it rides up Hope this helps someone
  2. Great work mate! In addition to others comments.. although not technically required, I would add some han hooks to the biceps which will help stop the shoulder bells riding up (they look slightly this way in the pics)
  3. Looks good Roy! A couple of very minor things I personally would look at.. The Terminal Det - if you are able to re-seat the control panel pad so it faces more upwards? Although not required, I would add some mesh behind the frown, i think it looks nicer Also slightly adjust the elastic strap on the left shoulder bell (the one that joins to under the shoulder straps) so it is uniform in length with the right side one. Good work mate
