  2. Urgh, will post more at the weekend, weather permitting
  3. Good observation skills you have there, it's a "will work for now" option until I work out a better one... I have a really bad feeling about this...
  4. It has wheels, it sits on a small trolley at the moment, but as I stated in my last reply I'm thinking of fitting it with an axle... It's current rollability option... I have a really bad feeling about this...
  5. [emoji38] just wait till its finished, will be lockable, alarmed and with a drop compartment in the lid for "stuff"Toying with the idea of fitting an axle with wheels one end, although that will stop it being airtight at that point, dunno yet... I have a really bad feeling about this...
  6. Tell me about it, at least I can walk now lol... I have a really bad feeling about this...
  7. I found one place I can at least... Armour sorted, hopefully get my submission pics done this weekend... I have a really bad feeling about this...
  8. While I wait for my new armour I thought I'd give it's storage some thought... Before it was started... Took all the hardware off gave an undercoat and started the white... More paint... To get to this stage took 4 cans of plasticote [emoji32] So now it's at this stage... Masking to do the black wasn't as smooth as it could have been so decided to make the rest of the black panels using vinyl (cheating but much better results) After the vinyl has been put on it'll be coated in lacquer then the cogs will go on... I have a really bad feeling about this...
  9. I personally won't do facebook groups, most have so many posts per day that my actual friends posts get swamped and it takes ages to find them... This forum was started to be the one stop place to get your information, research and help for all stormtrooper related gear, taking it elsewhere is fragmenting the community and making it more difficult to find the information you are looking for (a bit like illusive droids) and for what reason? Certainly not to make things easier but more likely in fact so the people who start these groups can increase their own exposure on facebook and so they can feel good about themselves and "facebook important" (similar to facebook famous but generally without the "hi guys what's going on" moronic videos... Any branching away from what is seen (quite rightly so) as the definitive stormtrooper reference source is in my opinion a step backwards... I have a really bad feeling about this...
  10. Sandy's nor shock's factor into this as they're not accountable to the rigorous standards of death star troops [emoji13] This seems to be about my way of thinking (so far but I'm fickle) Thanks for your input fellas
  11. Is your bucket abs or pvc? Abs then commercial hobby paint thinner or mineral spirit with a cotton bud, If it's pvc the acetone is fine, BUT ONLY ON PVC! the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  12. My 2 cents on the holster is this, during my military service when on patrol, exercises or anything else when we had weapons we carried them, rifles, light machine guns or as was for me back then occasionally an L2A3 Sterling sub machine gun... no holsters, and the reason is, when you have a weapon in a holster it takes time to ready it, in that time you're dead, on the death star maybe a holster was permissible but in any situation where combat is even remotely a possibility then they would be carried ready for use so holsters would be redundant and in these cases not even present... Any serious fighting force would not have holsters... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  13. I've seen a few posts around saying that the helmet looks like an efx one, maybe because they were endorsed by lucasarts and Disney now own that? Just a thought like... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
  14. Thanks but as u know I no longer have that armour [emoji57] Hopefully get the replacement this weekend... the force? oh I'll use the force, bring me a hammer...
