  1. Very sad to hear of Jim’s passing. Working alongside as attaches and on staff, I was glad to finally meet at Celebration this May. We talked and hung out quite a bit there. He was always easy to get along with. RIP brother.
  2. Mine showed up unannounced at my doorstep this afternoon, no email from them or anything. FWIW Puts the big in big brown box.
  3. I was informed I should be in the next wave in ~2 weeks. Ordered 11/2016.
  4. Cheers, nice find. I know some of the better models are no longer available on the common sites. Looks like a resin printer may be in your future for some of those small greeblies.
  5. I’m totally putting that on my E-11.
  6. Great trove of knowledge there. We gotta update that lineage chart with RWA and all the new kids.
  7. I have been in contact with them since late last year, and every time I reach out I am being told that I will hear more “soon”.
  8. 20-ish troops in rubber gloves and never a tear. Cotton liners is the way to go. Plus if you did ever need new gloves the rubber ones are like $5. Easily the cheapest part of the whole kit.
  9. Great to see you back at this Mark. Almost there!
  10. $500 all-in? Barring a great score on someone’s used kit that is, sadly, not feasible IMO. $500 for just the plastic bits is doable with patience. WTF for example has sales from time-to-time.
  11. …and wear protection! Bondo especially, gloves and a mask IMO.
  12. Close! Another option: girdles/spanx. One of our members uses one. Cheating? Yes, but it works.
  13. I assume the Purge trooper goes to SpecOps though.
  14. That promo blaster is a perfect example of how to finish a print!
  15. RS glue is quite difficult to remove. Would there be any problem simply going over the old glue?
  16. Absolutely loving some of your build ideas. Foam in the dropboxes and spacers on the snaps – doing these in my next build. Keep up the good work! You’ll be approved in no time. Hope to see you at centurion.
  17. As you can see from the title of the picture it says “approximate”. We are talking a difference of 2 to 3 mm tops with the size of rivets, edge vs. center measurement. I would imagine as long as you’re consistent - e.g. keeping your rivets on the same plane, not crooked or at a diagonal - I do not see the DO’s denying EI/Centurion because your rivets are 2mm “off”. AFAIK no-one has taken calipers to a film used suit anyway, so the best we have is approximate.
  18. That was the plan. I may update us with more photos once my hero belt is complete. Also looking into replacing the line 24 snaps on the holster itself with magnetic ones. We will see how that works, it’s not very easy re-securing it with my helmet on currently.
