  1. Sorry to hijack the topic but I have a friend in the same situation. Trying to register today but he's not getting the confirmation email. Already checked spam and nothing in there. Inviato dal mio SM-G965F utilizzando Tapatalk

  3. Hi, thank you for welcoming me to the Expert Infantry rank. I already knew the suggested fixings but I think I'll have some issues to implement them: my thighs are already low as much as I can. If I go any lower I'll be quite stuck with my movements and I'll need to cut the back of them and I'll end up having a likely bigger gap on the backside. Not sure if that's the right route to go. When I sent my first approval pics I tried rising the shins and the gap at knee level was actually reduced, but the overall effect was not completely satisfying. I'll post a comparison for your reference (EIB photos on the left, initial pics on the right). Please tell me what you think. The thighs have already been lowered a bit together with the torso. As for the biceps. Maybe I can gain a scarce centimeter by lowering them somehow, but as of today the biceps are already resting on my forearms when I flex my arms so I'm not sure how far i can go there either. The right side had actually opened up a bit in the pic because I forgot to attach the lower snap (dressed up quickly in the evening to collect all those pics for final submission). See this older pic for reference. Do you think that's sufficient or should I need to close it any further? I've already got all the photoset ready for Centurion application, but obviously your latest suggestions aren't factored in at the moment. Do you think I need to retake those pics with the implemented above suggestions before applying for Centurion or can I go with it? I won't have time to update the photos in the next days so I'll have to wait till the new year before trying to update my armor and my pics. Please let me know how can I proceed. best regards Niccolò

  5. In the meantime I updated the helmet screws attaching the ears with the correct type ones.

  7. Hi, TK41210 requesting 501st status and detachment access: http://www.501st.com/members/displaymember.php?userID=26808&costumeID=124 many thanks
  8. Hi, definitely interested on the next run. I've a DLT 19 to wire and your product seems perfect without the need to have multiple chips around. How could I get on your next run? many thanks Niccolò
  9. And these are the almost final pics. I still need to find a mesh (mosquito shield?) to cover the charging bolt long hole in order to hide the cables but also leaving some sound coming out from the speaker (now it's too muffled). Then I need to do a fake charging bolt, maybe from an aluminum sheet, as the resin one I have does not fit with all the cables inside. I also need to do a proper button cover on the counter. But it proved to be nearly impossible to work with the current micro switch. Any suggestions? Nonetheless, I like the intermediate result. And here's a video of the blaster in action https://youtu.be/VvrJplHu9DE Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  10. Ok. So new paint job done. After sanding it I primed it with an epoxy 2k spray from Spraymax. Then some layers of a better matte paint and then some clear transparent matt protective layers. It seems pretty a good paint job now. Now it's time to rewire it and test the electronics before reinstalling everyhthing. It shouldn't have been a problem but considering that I had to leave the buttons attached in the grip and spray everythong again, I wasn't sure that the masking had completely donw its job.

  11. Hi. Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place. I was wondering if any of you troopers are carrying some repair kits along with you when you go out trooping. Would you mind share their content with me? I'm trying to be more organized for my first trooping events. Thanks Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  12. Now I've bought a 2 component spray epoxy primer. It says it's good on difficult metals so might be the right choice foe the aluminum tube. Will let you know when it'll arrive and I'll have the time to rework the blaster once more. I'll have to disassemble, remove cables, led strip+ transparent tube, circuit boards, battery ans loudspeakers, protecting the grip and the other glued parts, then sanding the old paint on the tube and finally re-primer the whole tube, repaint and maybe a clear matt coating for extra protection...

  13. Wow, those parts look fantastic... I'll definitley have to upgrade some parts of my blaster now...
  14. My only complaint is that after the first troop the paint job already starts to scratch off the aluminum tube. This notwithstanding the careful preparation (sanding to roughen up the surface, cleaning from hand grease, primering, and several thin color layers) that I put into it (with my wife obliged to witness the whole process for days in the living room . Also in some points where I had some tape to keep pieces during the glueing phase, the paint has heavily peeled and need some major repaint, which I'm not exactly eager to do if this is the result after each troop... It's ok to have it weathered, but this is maybe too much .
