  1. Hi Sorry late to the party. If you have my old armour the overlaps were as the armour was when it was moulded from the original set. Which was quite tight. As a lot of people had issues getting it to fit I extended the run offs so there’s more to play with. Have you got a pic of the backs of your shins? I can’t guarantee an exact match as the colour and gloss varies from batch to batch. That will be the same with whoever you go with unless you go with acrylic capped. (Which I hate) There’s no point in matching old armour together as it’s different nearly every time. Not a lot but there will be a slight difference. Pm me if you need help with more shins. I’m always at the end of a message or get to me through Facebook which I’m on more these days. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hello, gmrhodes13 forward me to you about the rubber u shape trim? I was wondering how much would it cost for the product and shipping to Fresno California?

    Thank you!

  3. I get that. It’s just frustrating that everytime I make or sell a suit I get people quoting the CRL at me which is incorrect. This has been an issue for years and years. It’s not a new development. I don’t understand how it’s so hard for someone to set accurate standards and use accurate pics to support those standards. Why does it take years? This is not a legal document it’s a standard for grown men or women running around in white plastic! It’s clearly a power struggle. [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Why don’t you have a pic of a proper ROTJ armour and helmet in the CRL? The shoulder straps pictured are wrong. Level three says you cannot have overlap? That’s how rotj we’re constructed. They should not be butt joined with a cover strip? What that implies is that to be top level you have to construct it wrong! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. He’s been recasting me for years. I’ve just noticed he is back on eBay selling recasted rotj armour and helmets as well as RS armour etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. A bit late to the party but yes my abs is a warmer white. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Just saw Harbingers post. Basically the same but I use a solvent made for the job. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Use liquid solvent cement or “Plastic Weld” get a small screw top bottle or pot and cut up small pieces of abs, fill the pot, then pour the solvent into the pot. Put the lid on and leave over night it a day or two. Done. I’ve been making it this way for years. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. As far as I’m aware the Sds ANH suits were made of an abs from a company called Union tyres. Essentially a tyre company but started making sheet abs in the 70’s. They were based in Acton. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. As far as I know the ESB mkii suits were made in a pinseal/Hair cell and and rotj in smooth ABS. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I’d actually recommend getting an ESB mkii helmet for total shocktrooper accuracy. A ROTJ Is a good one also. But if you look closely you’ll notice that it has ANH ears glued on like the rotj ones which is only present on ESB mkii. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I echo what others have already said. Nicely done. Be interested to see how this holds up to trooping.
  13. I built one out of Polycarbonate roofing sheets. Cut to shape with a jigsaw. I purchased a filter and a extraction fan etc and built it around that. It works a treat. I really recommend a booth or you’ll be at the mercy of the weather and paint dust!
  14. ??? This wasn’t a dig at you or a competition about how long you’ve been assembling armour. I was just correcting some wrong information on a link you provided backed up with some experience. I’ll just keep quiet in future as you obviously know more than me as you’ve been doing this for so long.
