  1. Going to start tonight!
  2. Thank you so much! Been racking my brain all day
  3. I've been looking for the measurement for the thermal clips. I saw a link awhile ago but can't find it now. How long does the clips have to be from the end to the bends?
  4. My armor seems to click a lot when I walk. Mostly from the knee area. Will padding help quiet the noise?

    Thermal/ o2

    While building the thermal/o2 tank I split one the the end covers. Is there a way to find them at the hardware store or does someone on here still make the thermal detonator with clip?

    Bicep dimple

    My phone is being a jerk today...&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;<br><br> My armor has a dimple in one of the biceps and I was wondering what arm does it go on?
  9. I tried to search but with no luck
  10. I'm almost to the point where I need to start strapping.<br> Do I need snaps for the back armor, kidney armor and butt armor or can I just glue those straps in place?
  11. So I've been looking at pictures and pictures of stormtrooper butts and I'm still not sure if I need a return edge on the butt plate down where it touches my legs. I know I need one on the top to strap it to my kidney plate. But in the pictures I see some with and without a return edge on the area around the legs. So what did you guys do in that area?

    MTK armor question?

    Thanks Steve! This takes some weight off my mind ! I've must have watched the TB videos about 1000 times and i've read some of the MTK builds but taking that first step "cutting" is a bit nerve racking but I'm ready.
  13. So after lurking here and at MEPD I finally pulled the trigger on the MTK sandtrooper armor since the price was right and I had to spend the money before the wife did. Since this is my first build I was wondering how much modification needs to be done if any to the armor before it can be accepted into the 501st? I know it depends on the quality of work I do but is there any mods to the armor itself that needs to be done? I’ve read a lot of good reviews about the bucket and armor but I was just curious before I get too far along. The armor should fit well on me since I’m 5’8 with a medium build. I’m just nervous since it’s my first armor build.
