    FOTK holster screws

    I tried reaching out to [mention=2736]R2Dan[/mention] about supplying the hardware kits from here in the US as he was having issues sourcing them but haven’t gotten any response.

    ANH E-11 paint

    When I did mine the standard was for everything to be satin black and the grip to be gloss. I chose to weather mine with a little silver showing on wear areas and the bolt and brass showing on the scope.
  3. Nobody has gotten the Anovos armor yet, we are all impatiently waiting.
  4. I had a similar issue. Hopefully you used E6000 glue. I removed mine from the chest plate then put the armor on with blue painter's tape from the underside so I could see where it actually fit me. I then put the shoulder straps on and marked where they needed to go. Mine were skewed to the outside a little like yours need to be then took the armor off and glued them down. The elastic holds them down but I don't think it will correct yours when you are actually trooping.
  5. I had a similar issue as I am 6'3" and had to shape the back plate too. You need to cut that return edge down to about 1/3 its current size. Then you can shape it much easier. Heat in boiling water and bend a little then heat and bend and heat and bend, don't try to do it all at once. To fix the crack as said above but I would reinforce it with some spare trimmings of the ABS on the inside then use the Acetone/ABS paste to hide the crack on the outside.

    Lifeburn's Incinerator Trooper (finished)

    Actually it looks great! You should apply to the 501st.
  7. I have found that just following the great build threads here like @ukswrath step by step from the beginning is not only much easier but Centurian level from the start is the easiest even if you are just going for basic. It honestly doesn't take any more effort.

    Anovos FOTK Armor Delivery Possibility

    I am willing to wait and see. If they have a blowout sale because of too much stock at some point that is fine with me too and I'll grab a couple for spare parts. The way I see it is I'm not in a big hurry and Anovos has always delivered at some point and if they cancel I will get my money back at some point too. So, yes I am out the money until they deliver or cancel but if $700 was a big issue in my income I would have never bought it in the first place. In the meantime I am enjoying my ANH TK.

    Anovos FOTK Armor Delivery Possibility

    I spoke with a supervisor and he stated there have actually been only a very few cancellations. Remember it’s not just us in the 501st buying them. As far as shipping they estimated to complete all shipping by April 2019, not beginning in April was my understanding.

    Well, it appears that they can't even update their delivery schedule at this point. It still says Spring/Summer 2018 which ended on September 21. No news is Anovos news.......

    Anovos instructions?

    As said above the UKSWRATH's thread is the go to step by step bible for your build.

    Anovos FOTK Armor Delivery Possibility

    I know it’s not much but I just finished chatting with a customer service supervisor on another issue and he said not much longer. Hopefully he is correct and at least it wasn’t the typical, I don’t know anything.

    Taller trooper question....

    A little late but I’m 6’3 and 200 lbs and have the Anovos armor and am only rubber gloves and laziness away from centurion. What you need to do for the back is to heat the top of the back armor in boiling water so that you can bend them up and more vertical. This will allow it to sit lower on your back and close the kidney gap. Also get your chest lower too. It will look much better with a larger gap on top since your shoulder bells distract from that.

    KB reportedly closing

    I think without getting personal this is good information for people to know here especially if they already sent money or were going to send money since it sounds like he might still be selling. If a vendor is taking money and not fulfilling orders for any reason I think it should be said here to protect us from making a mistake.

    It’s nice they are at least saying something but feels like, they will take longer than we promised but then again maybe not. We’ll just cover our butts either way.
