    Paint Removal Method

    Where did you find the Mineral Spirits? I looked it up on Hobby Lobby and it says it’s not for sale or shipment to California.
  2. Great thread guys. I’m looking to upgrade my Anovos belt too.

    Looking for a Jacket for Patches

    Q, where did you get the Anovos patch?

    Looking for a Jacket for Patches

    I’m extremely jealous of all those patches guys. Thanks for the pics.

    Looking for a Jacket for Patches

    I was thinking that one would be nice since it is a little lighter than a regular jacket. I live in Northern California so, like your region, it doesn’t get too cold (except last night LOL).
  6. I liked what I saw. Excellent work.

    Reporting for Duty

    Congratulations and welcome to the Legion.
  8. I chose mine, because I always thought it was cool when Han and Luke donned the armor on the Death Star. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hello Troopers, I am having a problem with the straps that are holding my arms together. Whenever I wear it, it seems it fails at the shoulder Bell, and things start sliding downwards. I have Industrial strength Velcro. I wonder if it would be better to use that. Thanks for any input you guys have.

    Anovos Supplied Strapping Issue

    I’m in the process of attaching snap to webbing for gluing. Could one of you awesome troopers provide a photo of what the inside of your arms looks like with the snaps inside? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Anovos Supplied Strapping Issue

    Thank you guys. I used that method to connect my shoulder Bell snap to the elastic that connects my chest plate and back plate. I don’t know why I didn’t think of that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Anovos Supplied Strapping Issue

    I made webbing connections from my shoulder bells to my biceps. Before I glue them in, I wanted some input. I made a stack of scrap that will fit in between the raised part of the bell, that way I can glue the plate down. Should I use E-6000? I noticed on the spot on the chest piece, in certain light, the plate gave me what I call “bat nipples”. I’m worried that will happen on my shoulder Bell. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Anovos Supplied Strapping Issue

    Just the arms. I will see how they do once I switch to the snaps. I’ll report in nd let you know how they did after I troop this Saturday.

    Anovos Supplied Strapping Issue

    I did snaps on the inside of mine, but singles. I have not had problems with the torso, yet. So far, just the arms have been bugging me, so much that I got out of my armor shortly after I started my second troop. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Anovos Supplied Strapping Issue

    So, I fashioned these out of elastic and hot glue (I wish I could sew.) These are the Bicep to Forarm connectors. Should I go single or double snap? I’m thinking double would add a little more stability to it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What do you have?

    I have (drum roll please)........ A New Hope TK Stunt! Working on.......... (doing homework on a possible Phase II Clone.) Thank you, I’ll be here all night! All kidding aside, I am impressed with all these costumes you guys have. Especially Q and Greedo!
  18. It is strong enough to hold the floating shoulder straps. I hope someone has advice for the other part of the armor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. I do see how they are a little off from each other though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. You’ll use thin white elastic to tie them together. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Excellent job on this. I did notice a typo under the ANH Stunt on the holster section. You spelled worn “wron”. Not that it is affecting to usefulness of your wonderful spreadsheet! I will probably print it out and hang it up for reference.
  22. I was just thinking about where to get the screws. Thanks. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  23. I attached my Chest plate and back plate with elastic straps last night. My wife noticed that there would be a fairly large gap between the kidney plate and back plate. Will I have to shim that gap. I could close it a bit by make the straps a little longer but the undersuit would still be visible. The attached image is what it looked like before I was thinking to lengthen the straps. Thanks in advance for the input.

    How did you choose your TK ID?

    My TK-ID is 42134. I was thinking of a number while I was building my armor, and thought “The first three digits of my log in at work is 421!” I added “34”, because it is a favorite number between some close friends and I.
