  1. I decided to make a video showing how I pack my TK for a troop. Hope this is of some help to others! Sent from my LM-V450 using Tapatalk
  2. So I've been helping a friend build his anovos armor. It is complete but seems a little small and snug on him he is a big guy. Good news is the whole kit was put together with e6000 and can easily be taken apart. He is interested in possibly selling it and moving up to a larger am kit my question is what is a good listing price for a finished anovos kit? He's certainly not trying to price gouge or make a profit off of this but he would like to cover enough to buy an AM kit any thoughts or suggestions? Sent from my VS988 using Tapatalk
  3. I posted in the FS area of the forum but I am letting go of my pack. Gotta make room for some other things.....so if you need one, go check it out. It's a good start. Needs some work, but overall a decent pack. Sent from my VS988 using Tapatalk
  4. Any build thread by UKswrath or Navajobro is great!! They make it very easy to follow Sent from my VS988 using Tapatalk
  5. Thank you! Sent from my VS988 using Tapatalk
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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??
  9. Welcome!!!! What part of east TN? I am in Johnson City!!!!!
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. Welcome Eric!!!! Let me know if I can be of any help!!
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
