  1. Hi Tony! I'm guessing you already know this, but just to make sure: The two parts should not overlap under the strip, but go up against each other. On this part, I think the easiest way is to start with the side that has the raised area for the strip (the one you have the strip taped to in the picture) and measure out 7.5 mm (for a 15 mm strip) on each side from where you want the edge of the strip, and then make two straight cuts. Then tape it up and make all size adjustment on the other side.
  2. Costume Reference Library. "Each reference guide contains pictures of the costume, a detailed description of the parts, and requirements for 501st membership." http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:CRL
  3. That's what I thought, just making sure. Thanks!
  4. A blaster is required for EIB, but does it have to be an E-11 or is a DLT-19 acceptable?
  5. I'm almost 6'4" and decided to go with Troopermaster. Works like a charm, though I don't think I could have been much taller. He offers an XL shins option which is a must. Also one of the nicer and more accurate kits around. Love it.

  7. Am I correct in assuming that once heated and put on, they'll be stuck on there without any glue?
  8. Hi Does anyone have any advice on how to heat the end caps on a TM thermal detonator to make them fit on the tube? I tried to use a heat gun on my armor recently, and let's just say it's not something I'm excited to do again..
  9. What material are these DLT-19s made from? Can they handle being dropped?
  10. Hello FISD Working on my Troopermaster kit, I ended up with a pretty oval opening on the upper end of my forearms. The parts were rounder to begin with, but I have skinny arms so I had to trim quite a bit. It's difficult to tell from the picture, but perhaps someone has some experience with this: Should I try to reshape the piece for a rounder opening? If so, what's the best way to do it? One of them is already glued. Will heat, hot water for example, mess up the glue (E6000)?
  11. I tried e-mailing them about buying multiple items, but they never replied so I bought from someone else. Don't want to sound like a douche or anything, but if they can't be bothered to reply to my e-mails I'm spending my money elsewhere.
