  1. 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.
  2. I'd like to see how these attach to the armor if you have pictures of that
  3. Are you going to be doing a run for these?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Nice work! Those are some fine looking molds
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Which trim pieces are you referring to? Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  11. Nice, looking good. Did you shorten any of the parts?
  12. 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.
  13. Looking good! We all seem to be getting on at about the same pace lol
  14. For the glue I used JB Weld Clear Epoxy. CA glue and E6000 aren't the best for structural bonding in fiberglass in my opinion. And for Jim's armor modification to use cover strips would be less than ideal. The details on higher level certification aren't set in stone but to me it doesn't make sense to not allow Jim's armor at the highest level, especially since his is the only kit I know of that is based on the R1 armor.
  15. You should always use some good primer, then a few coats good paint, followed by some clear coat. The clear coat is what protects the paint. And the primer is what lets the paint stick to whatever it is that you're painting. There are some great tutorials on youtube for spray painting.
