    Nope, no plan for a race until now, but it would be nice to be able to.

    Yes I am a bit to talk for a stormtrooper, I am 185cm high. Most of the excess height is in the legs, as the torso seems to fit as intended. I think you got me wrong here, Matt. Right now the legs seem to be good, no armour bite while walking up and down stairs. And no big mobility issues here. So from that point I think I can keep the ends in the backs of the knees straight. But I will see if I think otherwise after my first troop, which will be on Dec. 15th. To be able to run in armour would be another goal, I simply haven't worked up the courage to try it out.

    E11 Blaster upgrade with BlastFX

    I have gone a bit away from the bolt being movable. The length of the bolt is the same as the real one. But with the wire for the trigger going into the handle of the gun, I fear that it can get stuck, the same is for the wires of the LEDs. I have no way to get them I and out of the bolt during sliding it back. The bigger problem would be if it is pushes back in place by the spring. So I decided to keep it where it is after install. Here is a picture of the barrel with the LEDs in it: And here the only thing I got to yesterday, shortening the handle and extractor with the Flex: For bette understanding what gut cut, the outer ones are the original sizes of the parts.

    By the way, walking stairs works better in the armour than I thought. But I want to have a rail in one hand, as I think the visibility in the bucket and stairs might spell disaster. Until now I haven't had the courage to try running in armour.

    E11 Blaster upgrade with BlastFX

    Thank Jesse, yes it is installed so when the trigger is pulled fully, the plate of the switch touches the housing completely. So no additional pressure to the switch. With my setup I need the space in the bolt for the board, that is why the cocking handle needs to be a lot shorter. As of now it goes all the way through the bolt and takes up most of the room in there. In a less intrusive way this goes for the ejector with the detail that it has a very sharp end which I don't want near the wires.

    E11 Blaster upgrade with BlastFX

    Got a little further with the E11. I made a holder for the trigger switch. It holds the switch against the trigger. The switch is held in there by ABS dowels which go through the holes. The holder itself is held in the trigger assembly by a small sheet of ABS in the back, after aligning I secured it with hot glue. The "barrel" is done. I already have installed the LEDs in there but I forgot to take pictures of it. Will post them later. The LED strip is attached to a strip of ABS via velcro. (The double sided tape wouldn't hold ...) I started prepping the counter for the display and drilled a hole for the wires. One of the next big things will be to shorten the ejector and the cocking handle. The get in the way of the already limited space in the gun. And without the cocking handle I can't get further with assembly.
  7. Hi there! TK-24576, new member of the White Shadows Squad of the German Garrison, requesting trooper status. http://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=24576 Thank you very much.

    Thank you, for the warm welcome But as I said it will be a bit till I can place EIB since I want to get the BlastFX into the Sterling and that is putting a bit of work my way. Incidentally a bit more than I thought.

    Did not get to much in the last few days. Only cut the thighs and reworked the left forearm a bit. AAAAAND.... I submitted my basic approval request. As of this morning: TK24576 reporting for duty. Now to get ready for EIB and Centurion. Some tweets on the armour. For example the kidney and abdomen plate tend to overlap on the right side, when the belt is closed. I am not sure what I will use, tabs, magnets... Have to tinker a bit here. Work on the inner padding of the left knee, this is still a wonky and pushes the knee outwards And most importantly, the blaster needs to be done.

    Good Point Paul! Thank you for chiming in.

    Those are the measurements I got from RS: But keep in mind , if you are very broad in the shoulders, these might be to small. Okay, if you are very broad in the shoulders, the RS bells are also to narrow.
  12. It's not split but double cap rivets *smartass mode*
  13. As addition to Freddy: 4. Those are for the bizeps to forearm connection. 5. I think those were intended for the ABS handguards to work as loops. Did not use them. 7. Yes, that's the side connection. 8. With the split rivet in the bag, that has to be the crotch strap. Connecting the an plate to the button at the bottom. 9. Correct, this is for the shoulder bell, the snap for the top, one of the other pieces (the longer one I think) for the loop around the bizeps, and one for an optional connection of shoulder to bizeps. 11. Spares I would say 13. I think they are intended for the ammo packs, but I used Chicago screws for the belt and single cap rivets for the ammo pack on the knee.

    Look much better would have been the goal...

    Will the placement of the back cover strips be a problem with Centurion status?
