  1. OMG I'm so sorry I missed this question! Better late than never! I used 2 part epoxy. This is what I used. Industrial strength. You can find similar ones in any decent hardware store. It's still holding up! https://www.weicon.com.sg/products/weicon-chemie/adhesives-and-sealants/2-component-adhesives-and-sealants/epoxy-resin-systems/epoxy-adhesives/2667/easy-mix-n-50-epoxy-adhesive
  2. JT reading through your FOTK build.  I will be getting my Imperial Surplus kit soon.  I am going to try an get a body shop to paint it.  Sounds like you did that.  Question is, I notice you put your grebblies/clips on prior to painting.  I've seen other wait and glue after painting.  What are your thougths?  Thanks again, Russ

      Sorry I missed your question! Somehow I didn't get any notifications, and it's only when I was browsing that I found this. I glued it on before painting so that the surfaces will be glued plastic to plastic, and not paint layer to paint layer. Gets a better bond. 

  3. Thanks! You can get the pouches from Trooperbay.
  4. Woohoo! This is the best set of armour I’ve seen! Awesome work, Dan!
  5. Before you cut, I would suggest you test fit the spat around the shins first. You don’t want to end up cutting too much, and the spats cannot wrap around the shin. I also fixed the greeblie part and used magnets for the inner side. Do take a look at my build thread if you want.
  6. All the best! Looking forward to your build!
  7. Thank you for your kind words! Many generous people here helped with really good advice and guidance!

  9. Thank you very much for your prompt review, @justjoseph63! Who would have thought, EI and Centurion on the same day!! And thank you for your kind words! Yes, I believe in giving back to the community, after having received such fine advice from those that have come before me! My build thread is a pinned post there, and yes I intend to share with those who might be joining the FO ranks in the future!
  10. @justjoseph63 I think you are working too hard, Joe! You just gave me my Centurion in my EIB thread! Hahaha!
