    Hovi mic speakers

    I guess I will 4th the Ukswrath kit. lol I love mine!
  2. So after attending and handling a handful of troops with me, my wife quickly got the trooper bug. We went through some options and ultimately landed on the Legacy TK but she thought we'd have to wait for a bit to order her kit. I told her we could at least order her boots first, little did she know I had ordered the kit pretty much as soon as she firmly decided on a Legacy. The boots arrived quickly from Imperial Boots: And then the BBB surprise: We quickly dived into pretrimming the kit and I started on some finishing work on the helmet, for some reason I really enjoy starting builds with the helmet. Frown trimmed: And then eyes: Then I started with fitting the left ear. Following the guides/dimples in the helmet for the screw placement resulted in the lower screw landing in mostly dead space, like so: So I clamped the ear down and drilled a new hole that caught both sections of the helmet. And then trimmed off the excess ear piece: One ear down: The goal is to have this kit done for MegaCon at the end of May, so we'll see!

    Greetings from Georgia!

    Welcome Shawn, and great meeting you this weekend! Look forward to following your progress here!

    Anovos E-11 Blaster

    I'd personally spend a little more and get a finished E-11 from Praetorian Blasters. As an added benefit, you'd get it pretty quickly from Praetorian, unlike Anovos.
  5. Just remember to add the necessary white portions to them!

    Fan noise?

    I've got two 40mm fans as well, running off a 4AA battery pack (which makes the fans run a bit faster/ louder than they would on a USB pack), and I can hear most everything around me just fine. I also have Tony's hearing assist system but I've not been using it as the vibration of the fans resonate through the helmet and the hearing assist mics picks that up, so it's just a constant, loud buzz, which renders the hearing assist almost useless. I need to isolate the fans some to reduce that noise, then it should be just fine.
  7. Congrats on EIB! On to Centurion! If I recall correctly from his build thread they're ukswrath hovi speakers (they also look just like mine, so I think that they are). I found it odd because as far as I know they've never been called out as an issue for L3 approval in the past. Prior to taking them apart I would suggest asking for clarification on that aspect as they might be damaged by opening them up.
  8. Understood, thank you for laying that out Dan. Just trying to make sure I'm providing everyone with a thorough application packet of pictures!
  9. Hey Dan, just for clarification purposes as I'm taking pictures to help my fellow local troopers, are those not details required only on the Centurion checklist? They don't appear on the EIB checklist I printed from this forum.

    Digz Graavz First Build - ANH Stunt from AP

    Before you glue the knee on you'll want to round those inner corners to prevent them from cracking/splitting while putting the shins on or taking them off, that area flexes quite a bit.

    Digz Graavz First Build - ANH Stunt from AP

    This is how I did that cover strip on that thigh (please ignore the untrimmed tops and crooked cover strip on the right thigh, this was an in-progress picture):

    Digz Graavz First Build - ANH Stunt from AP

    It looks like you're attaching your knee the way I did mine originally, focusing on centering the notches across the cover strip and lining up the side ridges, which results in a slightly crooked knee plate. Unfortunately this was not acceptable for Centurion approval, so to straighten it out you'll want to offset the knee a bit. Before: After:

    Centurion Anovos shim

    Just don't use a Ball branded mason jar as the lid's rubber seal will melt from the acetone fumes, fall into your paste, and give it a nice tinge of orange. lol
