  6. Thanks for your feedback (and the approval, of course :)) You are right about the knees. They are held on to the gaskets with chicago screws, the gaskets used to be super tight on me, but I recently lost a good bit of weight, which means there is wiggle room, so the gaskets move and with them the knees. I actually didn't notice it though until you pointed it out, so I'll have to look into how to make that stop Don't wander off too far, the Centurion request thread will be up in a minute
  7. Thanks for the praise. That's more or less what I was aiming for with the build, a replica (as far as the vac formed kit would allow it). There are still a couple small things I may have to change, but overall I'm quite pleased with it

  9. Mark approached me about this, showing pics without pointing out things or naming anyone. Not only did I instantly see the tells of it being recast, but also knew it was TM's work from the distinct mesh pattern on his vac former. Quite the shock! Although rumours like this have been going around ever since I joined the community over a decade ago, his parts have always been so uniquely sculpted (some would say modified) that there was no clear trail to the work of others. Not so much on this one... I am surprised TM has not replied to this himself yet.
  10. So I was talking to our DL and he encouraged me to post my story here. 5 years ago, I was diagnosed with testicular cancer and went through surgery and three months of chemo therapy. With that therapy came a long time of being pretty much inactive, while eating all sorts of crap just to be able to actually taste something (for instance a normal slice of bread with cheese would taste like mushy cardboard, it still makes me sick thinking about it). And unlike what you'd expect, my appetite was pretty strong! So obviously I gained quite a bit of weight. Being the lazy butt I was, I never felt motivated to get up and do something about it even after I was through with the chemo. In fact it got even worse with me picking up an office job and joining a team with a virtually endless supply of sweets and other treats. So instead of losing weight, I kept going up. The sad peak was just before (and during) our last trip to Disneyland at the end of February this year. I was at 89kg (196lbs) at 173cm (5'8"). Way too much... I still felt okay-ish, but seeing pics of our trip made me realise something needed to change. This was right around the time Corona got serious and counter measures were being taken. Which meant the bus I usually take to get to work was - and still is - not operating that early in the morning, forcing me to walk 3.5km each morning to catch my train. Instead of feeling sour about it, I used this as motivation to do even more. Now I've been doing 15,000 steps on average each day for roughly the past 2 months and simply stopped eating non-stop like a pig. And it shows! For the first time in 5 years, I am actually below 80kg (79.2 for the last couple of days, so around 174lbs), meaning I already lost a whopping 10kg! My goal is to lose a couple more kilos still, but it was an amazing moment kitting up in my classic TK (built to the original RS suit size) for the first time in such a long time and actually fitting into it again (although it was still a tight squeeze... but we're working on that :)) So yeah, this is my little story. Shows that all it takes is determination and a little self discipline and it is entirely possible to get back into TK shape!
  11. Hi Dan, can you put me down for a holster and hardware if you do run 12 please? Hope this is the right place to post, I cannot seem to be able to reply to the Run 11 thread. Thanks John

  12. Please put me down for holster plus hardware!

  13. as you can see, the cap is on the inside, with the open, uncapped side seen on the back of the box. Single cap, indeed. Not a pop rivet, as some may have thought
