    Jacks RS prop master ANH stunt WIP

    That is one heck of a job on the ears. Not easy to get them that close , unless you've done it many times before.

    New to Armor! How is AM?

    I think you will find that AM is among the highest in quality. I have a kit, although I am not a big guy and had to trim alot to get it to fit me properly. Still love the kit . Heavy duty plastic and very durable. Not only thick plastic but a sharp looking kit as well. It will satisfy when you open the box
  7. I'll back you on the amount of hard work put into making molds by hand. No joke, a lot of hard work and money. Not to mention the hours and hours put into heating and pulling plastic. It's not right for someone to step in and steal your work and profit from it.

    Alternative way to attach Drop Boxes

    I run the rivet through the elastic for the drop boxes. they always hang perfectly . Didn't always do that, but I have been recently. It works great.

    The brow kinda has that puzzled Spock look. Pardon the other side reference. Lol. You can easily adjust the brow.

    Nice choice

    Etsy not eBay but would it work?

    Not the way it is built in the picture. Not to sure about that bucket either. The dome or top of the helmet is a little large . If you bought it as a kit and put it together yourself you could eliminate some of the other problems in the build. Still I would recommend going with on of the vetted makers. True you would spend a couple hundred more in doing so. But you have the piece of mind in knowing that you are not potentially wasting a couple of hundred. The builder of the suit pictured is not an experienced builder. There are several things that were not done correctly. That tells me that there a potentially several other things that may not be done right as well. You might get by with that as a Halloween costume, but if you are going for 501st approval then I would leave that alone

    Is the following armor accepted

    I feel ripped off, and all I did was look at the site. DON'T DO IT.
  13. If you have a TK Talkie or Trooper talk or one of those that add the static burst then you can use the EQ to knock down the frequency that is giving you the problem. also you can set the volume output. This would allow you to turn up your amp to maximum but only allow a certain input to the amp, therefore not letting it get load enough to feedback. Not to mention if you like the background chatter of other troopers talking , you can also set that volume to a separate level than your voice. this is what I do with my TKtalkie.

    Hello from Maryland

    Hi Paul. I'm in Maryland also. If you decide to do a build, you may want to get hooked up with some of us other TKs here in the area. It can seam a little overwhelming trying to do your own build , but the Old Line Garrison here in Maryland is full of some awesome people. They will offer a ton of advice and help. Best to get hooked up with one or two of the TKS that have done a couple of builds and live close to you. If you run into some issues then someone would be close by to offer some on the spot advice and help. It sounds like you have been in touch with the Academy. That is a great move on your part. Bryan and the rest of the staff know just what you need. Good Luck, and welcome aboard. Tom.
  15. Also , just to add on. the USB batteries last much much longer then regular batteries will. Mine has never ran out when fully charged ahead of time. It's ran for up to 5 hrs pretty much continously. And it is all contained within your helmet, so it doesn't become an issue at all. You charge it up the night before you troop then just turn it on and forget about it, it works. No replacing batteries during a troop or worse not being able to.
