  1. I have an AM 2.0 kit and will be watching this build as I begin my build. I too am looking to go Centurian!
  2. Ordered and recieved Humbrol paint set and TK helmet hardware from Trooperbay. Also ordered white leather dye kit for boots, and vinyl spray paint from Amazon. Since the weather here in New Jersey is getting warmer, I plan to start working on my TK soon. Stay tuned for photos!
  3. Thanks, glad to know it will work!
  4. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F264005229719 I was thinking about these, but specs say 27cm high or 30cm high, which may be to short.
  5. What brand helmet bag, if you remember?
  6. Not sure if this is the correct place, but couldn't find anywhere else for it. I want to know how, or what is the best (and safest) method to transport your Helmet. I know most people store it in the bins, if there is room, but for Troopers with smaller bins they can't fit the helmet. What cases/bags do others use. I was looking at a couple of Motorcycles helmet cases, but they seem too short (27cm to 30cm heigh). Thanks.
  7. Order placed for screen accurate strapping from ImperialBoots.com.
  8. Looking good, just need to relocate your drop boxes. They should be near the edge of the plastic ammo belt.
  9. I recently received my AM 2.0 ANH Stunt BBB, this build thread is going to help me a lot. I am definitely going to be referencing this during my build!
  10. Looks like you are going ANH Stunt, if so then you want to replace the holster straps (attached to belt) with tan leather strap. Also your rivet caps on the belt are kind of thick, may need trimming.
  11. Have not posted in a while. Several weeks ago my BBB from AM 2.0 arrived, as did my black Chelsea boots, and bracket strap kit. My goal it to be 100% screen accurate ANH Stunt TK. Just waiting to order the strap kit from Imperial boots.
  12. Thanks for the info, appreciate that. Now I understand.
  13. My armor arrived rather quickly. I ordered the screen accurate bracket system. Just have few questions. Been recently watching TrooperBay's TK build on YouTube. He is the only one I have seen use 3in thigh elastics, yet this is also on the RS model in What We Know About Strapping Thread. Why doesn't the Centurion level require this? Next, is it better to go Newey Hook and elastic on the shins or velcro? Lastly, why does it appear on the RS TK, seen in the "What We Know About Strapping" section, does it appear the strap brackets are bolted facing out and not on a return edge???
  14. Victor is the guy running AM 2.0. I got my armor from him. Fast shipping. Good for us larger guys and gals. Just need time to build
  15. I am going the same route. Already got the boots. One suggestion, don't use acetone on leather..it will dry it out and cause cracks. If you are buying leather boots there are several products made for changing the color with paint. One is a specific leather recolor prep solution. My boots are "Man Made Materials", which acetone should be okay with. Good luck
  16. The boots came in the other day and are just perfect. No seems on front. Fit just fine, with room for inserts. Now I just need to prep and paint them.
  17. This is the route that I am going. Picked up a pair of black Jodphurs for $40, now I just need to prep and paint!
  18. FYI, if you get "real leather" boots, you can have them professionally stretched or they will stretch over time the more you wear them. This is one of the benefits of leather.
  19. I made my next step and ordered my armor. AM 2.0 Stunt!!!
  20. Thanks for the tip about the snap on the shin and boot pull!
  21. I just watched a YouTube video with someone comparing a $10 Stormtrooper costume to a $1300 Stormtrooper costume. The $1300 was from Shepperton Design Studios. I was shocked by how bad it looked. The guy had it built to wear out of box, and there were so many inaccuracies.
