  1. Are your Hovi tip speakers compatible with the ROM/FX or would I need to make some modifications? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Tony - thank you for all of your research and expertise. This is a great thread. Question - is it necessary to drop the voltage to 9v for the ROM/FX? I seem to remember that it can take 12 volts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. This forum and Tony's build in particular have been indispensable. The level of detail and commitment to screen accuracy is really great. I think for a new armor builder like me it would be helpful to understand the rationale for moving the notch when extending the kidney plate. It seems that pretty much every detail for Centurion approval is rooted in the actual screen armor. Since there doesn't appear to be any shims on screen what is thinking for moving the notch? Maybe someone can post a link to the original debate/discussion that led to this rule. Not try to stir things up, just trying to wrap my head around the rationale since moving the notch doesn't seem logical to me s maybe I'm missing something. Nevertheless this has been a fun project that has added a little escapism from our crazy world. Respect. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I posted this on Tony's build thread. Reposting here... Regarding the Kidney notch/shim situation, from a film production standpoint, if you were in charge of wardrobe on set and had to accommodate troopers with different sized waists I think one of two things would happen: 1. Extend each side and leave the notch as-is. 2. Split the back, widen it and reshape the sides. I highly doubt that production would take the time to deal with covering up the current notch, shimming, and making a new notch. It's just too time and labor intensive for something that is never really seen on screen. As we all have learned - these suits were pretty much thrown together and never intended to be heavily scrutinized. There was no home video when Star Wars came out so they were more free to do what they had to do to get stuff on screen. That said, maybe the spirit of production warrants some consideration on this issue? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
