  1. I used a dremel with a cutoff wheel. To smooth it out I used my belt sander. Worked pretty well. Just watch for fiberglass dust. Use a respirator and long sleeves.
  2. Any pictures of your belt? I am working on an 850 kit and I'm looking for ideas.
  3. I had to do a considerable amount of trimming as well. If you cut off the cover strip you would probably have to sand the back of it down to get the right thickness. The buttplate shape is a little off on Jim's kit so trimming around the bottom would work out.
  4. I have a praetorian E-11 and I was one of the first to buy the R1 version and they were super helpful and it is a fantastic product. I'd give them some time.
  5. I'd like to see how these attach to the armor if you have pictures of that
  6. Are you going to be doing a run for these?
  7. Unfortunately no, I got really close though. Sorry I haven't been updating this post but I have been busy with work and with the armor. I will post pictures after I get back from DragonCon.
  8. The US Army FM 3-21.5 (which can be downloaded for free online) is a great resource for drill and ceremony for a modern military. Some of the manual of arms could apply for larger blasters but for the E-11 I would probably just recommend holding it at port arms.
  9. When I was there two years ago I noticed them and they are indeed anovos. You fill out an order form that goes to anovos and you still have to wait for shipping. Atleast when I was there they didn't have anything on hand.
  10. Nice work! Those are some fine looking molds
  11. I don't think any level of weathering can add the detail necessary for the R1 style of cover strips. The CRL is in work so unless more people agree that it should be required at a higher level than basic then it looks like it's gonna be mandatory for approval.
  12. Oh, the second tier of the cover strips? I can measure mine when I get home, they look pretty close to screen accurate to my eyes. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  13. Which trim pieces are you referring to? Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  14. Nice, looking good. Did you shorten any of the parts?
  15. Same, but I need to have mine done by the end of the month if I can so hopefully we can all learn from each other and get it done quick.
