  1. Hi All! Im working on a TFA and would like to find a vendor for the ammo vest. I looked around on the forums but couldn’t find anything. If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated, thanks!
  2. Thanks for the info. I’ll have to give the rustoleum a try
  3. Hey everyone, has anyone found a spray paint that is fairly close in color to the anovos TK. I tested with Krylon White, but it’s too white. The anovos seems a little bit milkier. I went the ABS paste route on the shims for my kidney plate, but unfortunately ended up with some discoloration after sanding. It’s perfectly smooth. I sanded all the way up to 2000 grit and then polished, but I’m not happy with discoloration.

  5. Just submitted for approval and got some better photos. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I separated them a bit from how they were before. I thought you had also said they looked big, but must've been a misunderstanding. Just have to get some good approval photos then it's off to EIB! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks! Good catch on the ear screws, I totally missed that. And yes I currently have the snaps holding the holster, so it's removable. I may have to take you up on that if others chime in and think they're too big. I appreciate the offer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hey everyone! I just finished up my hero TK (Luke version) and am looking for some feedback. I apologize for the quality of some of the photos, they are screen shots from a video. The the biggest thing I've noticed I need to address is tightening the straps on the split rivet side of the armor so there is no gap. It was also pointed out to me that the snaps I used for the holster may be too big. Thanks in advance for any feedback!

  9. Nice work! This looks awesome Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Sometimes people put a strip on the inside as well as the outside just for extra support. And as for sizing, not everyone's body is the same. For example those biceps have already been trimmed but say you have bigger arms and go to assemble them, they don't fit because there isn't enough plastic. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. That looks like MTK armor to me. I'm pretty sure that is right on par with his regular prices. Since everything is already cut, you have no way of knowing if it'll fit you right because they cut it to fit them, so that's definitely something to consider. And the shin is likely glued together with a strip on the inside, that's why there is no cover strip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Congrats Randy! Honored to troop with ya Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. To be honest I have makerofthings! armor and an ATA helmet. At the time of purchasing I didn't know anything about recasters and I didn't even know whitearmor.net existed to ask questions about it. I had done so much research looking at pictures of TKs from a new hope I just thought his kit looked accurate so I bought it. His pulls are pretty good and I got approved for 501st with his kit BUT that being said it is definetly not the best of the best. After recently doing my first troop and looking at other members armor mine is very brittle in comparison. I have had to add lots of support in places to prevent any cracks or splits as the plastic is so thin. I've already had to replace the legs and shins with better ones. I eventually plan on buying another kit from a more reputable person. Anyway I wouldn't buy from him again.
