  1. Not everyone has the budget to burn on a Vader costume. It can easily run 4-5 times the cost of a TK.
  2. Super slow [emoji23] Got distracted by another project, then had a printer issue which I haven’t had time to remedy. That said, I’ve printed 2 of the smaller boxes and the cup. Radio box is being printed as 4 parts, of which 2 are done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Bunnings sells the split rivets. [emoji6] How many you after? I may have some spares you can have. Pick up after Uncle Dan lifts lockdown [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Why are you wanting to raise the thighs? They look high already. You can probably trim some of the return edge at the top of the thighs though to give yourself some space. I don’t see how the ammo strap/pouch can be rubbing your calf given the gap between the 2 parts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. G’day Steve You’re in good hands with Glenn and the WA crew. I’m over in Melbourne, but give us a hoy if you need any advice or help [emoji4] I bought my compression stuff from Aldi. Obvo it doesn’t get as hot here, but it does the job and at the price point its cheap enough to buy a couple of sets [emoji6] Cheers Rudi Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Congrats and welcome from lockdown central, aka Melbourne (at least we got coffee [emoji23]) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. That's the one I've got. Wasn't cheap, but worth every cent.

  10. Another fantastic edition of the FISD Newletter. Thanks to @gmrhodes13 , team and all contributors! Congrats on the achievement @Architect18112 And last but not least, happy 21st birthday again Bossman @Sly11
  11. G’day from Melbourne, Luke. You’ll find there’s a fair few of us Aussies around [emoji4]
  12. G’day Richard Welcome from Hookturnistan, aka Victoria! [emoji6][emoji23] Have you asked on the SCG forums if anyone is doing commissions locally? Might be an option to import the armour and have a local assemble it for you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Ah, gotcha, I really need to learn to read good [emoji23][emoji23]
  14. If you’re prepared to wait, Eelco at 3D Props NL has just started the research on a T21. Not sure if the files will only be available via his Patreon or for sale though.
  15. Apart from the antenna (the CRL doesn’t allow for that), I can’t see anything wrong with your pack. What was the exact wording from your GML?
  16. Hey Chris, Found ya, mate! I'll post the submission photo requirements in response to your question over on the Knightfall forum. Overall, though, the armour looks good for basic submission. There are a few dressing issues here and there, nothing that should hold you up. Dressing issues I've noticed (in addition to what you pointed out): - helmet sitting skew (for submission photos make sure this is nice and straight) - back plate looks loose (might just be the photo angle) - line up the ab and kidney plates (again, might just be the photo angle) - tighten that belt, trooper - drop your shins a bit, they're sitting a bit high on your boots (the backs of your knees will thank you later) Future enhancements - just a few items you might consider for future/post approval: - your biceps and forearms seem to sit quite loose. You might consider reducing their circumference in future (FWIW I have to do the same on my biceps) - reduce/remove the return edge visible on the side of your ab plate. - moon cuts behind your knees on the shins (again: the backs of your knees will thank you later) That's all I spotted in a quick look during lunchbreak. Other's may spot additional fixes
  17. I’m about 800km south of you: Hookturnistan (aka Melbourne [emoji6]) Be sure to sign up to the Southern Cross Garrison forums as well if you haven’t already done so [emoji1303]
  18. Welcome the party, mate! Whereabouts in Straya are you?
  19. Welcome, Tim! Always great to see people doing their research first [emoji1303] I’m sure you’ll agree this site/forum is a gold mine of information!
  20. Congrats again, Mark! Hopefully we’ll be able to troop together soon. [emoji4]
  21. Just a quick mock up of the pack before I spend several days printing parts. These are scaled to 90% to match the relative sizing of the oil pan. I don’t think a HWT has come across my GMLs desk yet, so he may be looking to the detachment for advice at some point. So, with all that in mind, am I on the right track here?

  22. Thanks @MaskedVengeance and @gmrhodes13, I'll be happy to share the files when they're done.... "when" is the question LOL While I should have been modding and printing pack parts, I got a wee bit distracted and accidentally printed a DLT-19 instead. All parts taking longer than an estimated 16 hours to print were split in 2, which means more time finishing but less time listening to the missus moan about a noisy printer in the early hours of the morning. The model is off Thingiverse (Star Wars DLT-19X blaster (MG 34) by surfinbird132), minus the scope, plus the bipod. Whilst it's certainly no 3DPropsNL model, it's close enough for the occasional troop. All parted printed in PLA+, 0.2 layer height, 4 walls, 25% infill. I've already started giving some of the parts a light sand with 400 grit wet/dry. Thereafter they'll get a coat of UV resin, another rub down, and a final coat of resin.
