  1. I'm starting to think I should get those black pouches and just color in the white seams. I looked closer at the in-game pouches and they do indeed seem to be MP40 pouches, they're just not highly detailed. But upon zooming in and brightening the picture slightly, one can see they clearly have the traditional straps and the slots to hold them in.
  2. I'd try to make my own but I am incredibly inept at sewing of any kind LOL I'll just try to find some, or commission them from someone who knows what they're doing. I'm just trying to get this all done in time for an event I have coming up in October.
  3. Just found these for pouches. I think if painted black they'd be fine. https://www.amazon.com/WWII-German-MP38-Magazine-Pouch/dp/B07DMK6TQP Edit: Just found these too. https://www.amazon.com/trooper-Black-Canvas-Magazine-Pouch/dp/B01JB9A2CG/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=MP40+pouch&qid=1630339470&s=sporting-goods&sr=1-8
  4. The maker only seems to make the black trim in the right size, the gray trim is 12 mm and then they don't even appear to make the white trim in the correct style. Which is bizarre... Oh well, I'll just have to keep looking. I'm waiting to hear back from Dave about getting the bigger AM parts that I require. Aside that, the biceps and wrists are coming along nicely.
  5. Just found this. It's 10 mm but it's black. I suppose I could just paint it white. https://www.amazon.com/uxcell-Black-Plastic-Channel-Protector/dp/B07ZNH5QB8/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=uxcell+u+trim+1%2F16&qid=1630292259&s=hi&sr=1-4
  6. Hmm, that thread said to get as close to 10 mm as possible, the stuff I linked is 12 mm. I'll look around a bit more for a US supplier. I looked at that boat website and it appears they don't carry the correct u trim anymore. Figures.
  7. How is this for the armor trim? https://www.amazon.com/uxcell-Edge-Plastic-Channel-Protector/dp/B07ZRNPQHN
  8. I don't think anyone has the files publicly available for the flamethrower, do they? I looked in the flamethrower forums and everybody made their own from scratch, and the one build I did see that was being 3d printed never got fully updated with an end result.
  9. Here's an image of a test fit with helmet and shoulders on (over a t-shirt.) You'll see what I mean about the shoulders and how they sit.
  10. Well now the bad news that the chest plate and back plate are definitely too small. I trimmed the chest plate properly and test fitted it and the shoulders didn't sit flush with mine and the sides didn't go around my ribs. All the rest I can salvage though. Just the main body parts will need replacing. I'll get in contact with RWA, thanks!
  11. The good news is I actually think that the chest and back plate will be fine for me, especially since the back plate free floats. I'll simply need a new abdomen and and hip plate that's bigger. All the rest I can make to my size.
  12. Just added that detail and reapplied the tube stripe decals so they were correct. I talked to Dave a while ago, he doesn't do the ROTJ armor pieces that I lack. He only does the ANH/ESB. My armor is from Walt, but his is sized for someone way smaller, as is CFO's I believe.
  13. Hey all. I've had a kit lying around for a while, and I've decided to make an Incinerator Trooper with it. I've already got the helmet nearly done, and I have the armor. The only problem is.... the armor is too small. Does anyone know where I can get a bigger chest piece, back plate, abdomen, and butt plate? Everything else should fit me fine but those specific pieces in my kit are way too small and need replacement. Thanks!
  14. Finally, big update! The helmet kit has arrived from Dave's Darkside Depot! I'll be starting work on it over the weekend. I'll have to ever so gently reshape the left eye so that they match symmetrically.
