  1. Could definitely work, but keep in mind weight distribution, not just weight itself. Making the stock of wood and keeping the typical pvc tubing for the barrel will make it pretty barrel-heavy. There seems to be a stigma against EVA in the Legion, but I think it revolves around durability more than anything else. I'm not sure what steps you can take to make it longer-lasting.

  2. The First Imperial Stormtrooper Detatchment; the division of the 501st dedicated to stormtroopers and how to build them While you may not be looking to join the Legion (we would love it if you did!), we can still help you with your research and questions. Don't be alarmed if people push you to be as accurate as possible, that's kinda our thing around here. You may call us obsessed Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  3. Looking great! Get that Centurion approval in sooner than later! One tiny little thing I noticed is the fitment of your forearms. The cover strips should line up with those of your biceps. Some extra padding will keep them from rotating like they appear to be doing.
  4. @sharkbait FYI, the holster requirements are still flipped on the sheets accessible with the above links. Great sheet, love it!

    Are these gloves okay for trooping?

    For trooping, perfect. Just don't try to wear them for your centurion submission pics Sent from my LG-H872 using Tapatalk

    Holster question

    I second chicago screws. Easy to take off if you want to clean your belt. I'm pretty sure the screen used method was pop rivets. Edited for auto correct typos. Sent from my LG-H872 using Tapatalk
  8. I would stay away. Judging by nothing but the pictures on their website, their armor seems pretty low quality. The helmet proportions look off, the details (like ab buttons) looks wonky, and most importantly, theyre using overlap construction instead of butt joins and cover strips.

    Removable weathering

    No problem! I just wanted to be sure you weren't going to do something more permanent than you wanted Sent from my LG-H872 using Tapatalk

    Removable weathering

    Assuming your keeping with the topic on this thread, i would stay away from acrylic. It will be comparatively hard to remove, and in my mind would be tough to make a weathering pattern with. Just my two cents. Sent from my LG-H872 using Tapatalk

    Hotel Requesting Review (ATA)

    I say looking good! Only change I would make is bringing those drop boxes up. We shouldnt see any of their strapping. Welcome trooper! Sent from my LG-H872 using Tapatalk

    Can we use sharpie to paint details for the helmet?

    My only concern would be with taking it back off if/when you want to. Acrylic paint is much easier to take off then permananrt marker would be. Sent from my LG-H872 using Tapatalk

    Belts question

    Depending on how you build your first belt, you may not need two. My dropboxes are velcroed on and therefore are easily detachable, and my side pouch easily covers the holes from holster removal. The holster itself is just attached with chicago screws, so it's easy to take on and off too. I consistently go back and forth depending on what an event calls for and whether I want to lug my pack for 3 hours or not. Sent from my LG-H872 using Tapatalk
