  1. You are doing a great job! Keep it up! Love the use of zip-ties.
  2. Thank you! My nerves are still on edge everytime I cut... Lol. Don't want to make too big of a mistake. Having fun though! Sent from my LG-H873 using Tapatalk
  3. Thankd@justjoseph63 I was planning on trimming most of the return edges anyways... Sent from my LG-H873 using Tapatalk
  4. Biceps are coming together pretty good. I think I am going to leave the biceps for now and start on the forearms. When I am happy with the forearms, I will take a test fit with both biceps and forearms together. No glue for a while. Want to be able to correct if I need to. And plus, haven't bought any e6000 yet.... Hehe! That way, I am not tempted to use it. I will take a few more pictures of the biceps when I get home later. Capture a few more sides for you all to see. Stay tuned! Sent from my LG-H873 using Tapatalk
  5. Ok.... Happy New Year, everyone! Got back to work on the build. Did some of my biceps and was wondering how much of a gap there should be between the armor and your arm? Like, I measured my arm and it is 14.5inches, flexed. So, should the armor be like 15inches or 15.5inches?? Or am I over thinking this part too much?? Other than that, I also purchased my undersuit... 2 piece, of course! Pretty cheap at Wal-Mart. Glad that the holidays are done so I can focus on the build a little more.

  6. Looking good! Can't wait to start my bucket! Sent from my LG-H873 using Tapatalk
  7. Alright... So i roughly put the biceps together. Do I still need to trim down the return line in these pictures? I had read 8mm... Don't know if that's right. Sent from my LG-H873 using Tapatalk
  8. That looks familiar! Glad to see another RS trooper! Can't wait to see the progress! Sent from my LG-H873 using Tapatalk
  9. This can happen pretty fast and not even know it until you jump in the shower. I guess I scratched my skin with some unsanded armor while sliding armor on and off the arm. Started small trimming around smaller pieces last night. Got my lexan scissors so I needed to test them out. I shall be starting the biceps this weekend. Stay tuned for pictures and questions!!

  10. Also, I am putting my order in for my TK Boots this week, hoping that they have my size. For a blaster, because it is not a part of the approval process, I have decided to buy a Rubies E-11 blaster and make it myself. That way, if the kiddies want to see it and are rough with it, not a big deal. As well, don't have money for a replica one.. Other stuff I am ordering: neck seal, holster and belt, gloves with hand guards and buying a two piece undersuit at a local store, without any logos. Still don't know what I am doing brackets or what... Maybe someone can help me decide on that. Any suggestions for any of these items, would be appreciated! Currently gathering the rest of my tools as well, borrowing from different friends because I don't want to buy them... Lol. I have already gotten a rivot tool, dremel and some clamps. Need more magnets as well. I need to drive to a hobby shop in another town to purchase a pair of lexan scissors because I haven't found any in my city. Unless there is another option?? Anyways, I think I have covered everything up until this point. I hope to start a little bit this weekend. Been basically reading a bunch of threads and getting familiar with stuff this week, so far. If I have forgotten to mention anything, please let me know! Sent from my LG-H873 using Tapatalk
  11. Ok... Started dividing the armor so I know what's what. Helmet parts and accessories. Sent from my LG-H873 using Tapatalk
