  1. Thanks. I might still build it and just make an assumption. Maybe one day we will see the entire set of armor all the way to the feet.
  2. Hello, My name is Crookknight. I have built over a dozen sets of TK armor and I am offering any free assistance or advice to newcomers who want to build there armor so they can get Centurion status. I am a Centurion Level HWT and am looking for ways to give back. Post on here if you want any assistance with your build. There are not strings attached. Admins, if this is not the appropriate place to post this, let me know. I did not know the best place to post this. Thank you.
  3. So is there anyway to get a CRL for this? I know we do not have pictures of the boots, but there has to be some way to get this done. Can't we just make an assumption based on historical data of how other costumes look? I want to do this one, but not if I cannot get it approved.
  4. Boy am I glad that I did not do business with them. I have issues with another maker and been trying to get armor for over 2 years. I do get behind on some of my packs, but at least I honor all orders, communicate with the buyer and get them out, even when it costs me. Customer Service is the most important thing in this business....and yes so is delivering on what you promised.
  5. Awesome. Thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. A resin cast side holster clip (or whatever you call it) came with the KB Props Kit. Is there somewhere I can get a metal one or one that will hold the pistol?
  7. Anyone know where I can find a build thread or where to purchase the big gun shown in this picture?
  8. THIGHS: The thighs came pretty well trimmed with most of the excess material already removed. In order to make the front of the thighs look consistent in width (i.e. the right side joint is in the proper position, as well as the overlap joint on the inside), I trimmed a minimum amount of material from each side of each front piece. Once trimmed, I did a quick test fit with the untrimmed back of the thigh. I marked specific locations (forgot to take a picture) and trimmed only the outside seam piece that will butt joint against the front part. I used the sanding table to get the 2 edges as close to even with each other as possible. At this point, I used painters tape on the inside seam to temporarily act as the joint strip. I do this so I an mark where I need to trim the top and bottom of the back thigh piece. I then superglue the abs strip on the inside of the outer portion of the thigh. I place magnets on it for about 5 minutes to allow for good adhesion. I trim the top and bottom pieces for a smooth line between them. Then another test fit to determine where I need to cut the overlap for the inside of the thigh. Once cut and trimmed, I added the velcro. Next will be to add the greeblies (clips). Then once all the other armor is done, I will perform a test fit and trim more off before painting and strapping.
  9. BICEPS: I AM GOING TO POST NEW PICTURES I laid out the untrimmed biceps components. Using a sanding table I quickly sanded off the extra. If you do not have a sanding table, I highly recommend you get one. It saves a lot of time and makes it much easier to shape. Also, I used some of the excess material to make the inside cover strip that will hold 2 of the pieces together. Using Superglue, I glued the first piece of the bicep (long side) to the strip. Used magnets to hold in place for a couple of minutes. Next, I glued it to the other long side of the bicep. I used the sanding table to ensure the 2 ends were straight and flat so it makes for a clean line between the 2 pieces. Next, I sanded down the greeblie. Then using a heating gun, i shaped it to the insert on the bicep where it will be placed. I then superglued it on. Next, i used white industrial strength velcro for the connection of the other 2 pieces. I cut it too length and installed the rougher side on the outside piece and the softer loop side of the velcro on the piece that faces out from the bicep. It closes easily. All finished....minus cleanup and final painting.
  10. FOREARMS - Improved: Per UKwraths advice, I trimmed down the thickness of the end of the forearms. It definitely fits much better now.
  11. This is great. Thank you. I will trim them down and take more photos. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Drew the cut lines for the forearms. I pretty much did this where the ABS appeared to be vacuumformed against the mold and not the support of the mold. Rough trimmed the pieces and sanded down the greeblies. Now since I wanted to not wait forever for the E6000 to dry, I am using Super Glue on most parts. The greeblies I still use E6000 since the Super Glue does not adhere to the resin as easily. Quick test fit to make sure my hand could make it through the front part of the forearm. This is the most constricting part of the forearm. Decided to trim a little more off the back inside of the forearm to allow for the gaskets. Removed magnets after 5 minutes. Looks pretty good. Still have some minor trimming to do. Completed forearms with greeblies. I will do some minor trimming and sanding before I paint. Going to wait until all pieces are done before final sanding and painting.
