  1. Any build thread by UKswrath or Navajobro is great!! They make it very easy to follow Sent from my VS988 using Tapatalk
  2. Thank you! Sent from my VS988 using Tapatalk
  3. As far as placement of the snaps, I am attaching some photos that might be of some help. Also, I HIGHLY recommend doubling up on the snaps because one will pop off from time to time. I even double up especially on the thigh snaps. Learned that the hard way when a thigh came unsnapped during a parade ...[emoji19] Sent from my VS988 using Tapatalk
  4. Hey guys I made a quick video tutorial on how to make these clips. They are very easy to make and really help keep the bicep strap up. Hope this helps. If you have any questions let me know! Sent from my VS988 using Tapatalk
  5. Im sure this has been asked before but with Celebration coming up in April, I am considering flying and trying to think of the best way to get my armor there without shipping my Husky tote. I have heard of some packing the armor in a large hard shell suitcase then taking the helmet as a carry on. Any thoughts??
  6. Welcome!!!! What part of east TN? I am in Johnson City!!!!!
  7. Anyone know if there is a template out there to make your own pouches? I have plenty of leather like material to make some with.
  8. Got lots of things left to do still. But I'm at the point where parts are starting to look like a HWT pack! Thanks to everyones amazing tips and build threads! Sent from my VS988 using Tapatalk
  9. Welcome Eric!!!! Let me know if I can be of any help!!
  10. The freezer trick worked!!!! Had it in the freezer all day, used a knife and it popped right off! Here is a pic of them next to my armor. Now for the shoulders. Sent from my VS988 using Tapatalk
  11. So this guy CA glued the shoulder bridges on before trimming. He also did the same with the ab plate buttons. UGH! So is it worth it to try and remove them or just say to hell with it and keep it as is and move on to other problems I CAN fix? Will this effect his basic approval? Sent from my VS988 using Tapatalk
  12. Ok guys so everyone has been so helpful when I was building my TK a couple of years ago I am coming to you guys again for advice. I met a local guy who has a kit that was built for him by a friend. (Looks like an AM kit) However this friend threw the kit together in 3 days!!!! ....and he did it using HOT GLUE and CA GLUE!!! To make matters worse he did not follow the CRL or any build threads and simply overlapped the pieces. Now this guy has commissioned me to "fix it" and help get his armor 501st approved. I am having some difficulty getting some of the hot glue off but I think I can do it. The CA glue however is a different story. I have already broke part of the armor trying to separate one of the shins. Good news is that I was able to fix it and the break is under the now new cover strip so you don't see it. I really want to help this guy and to be honest the challenge is a bit fun. Is there a trick I need to know to separate pieces that have been glued with CA glue??? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks
  13. So I currently have a clean TK. (AM 2.0) I am gradually working towards a HWT, so in the mean time is it cool to go ahead and VERY lightly weather my TK? My clean armor looks like I have not seen any action. Lol Thoughts??
  14. Ok so this might sound like a dumb question but here goes... Rather then buying charcoal powder....could I just use some of the black ash etc from my fireplace?
  15. Anyone have any suggestions on how to make your own t tracks? I'm not looking for them,to be super accurate, I made the poor mans dlt 19 from happy trooper. It looks good but of course just a fun prop for trooping. So I am looking for materials to make t tracks.
