  1. If you look up reviews for the site, they are mostly 1 star reviews saying it’s a scam site. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Still not 100% done. But I couldn’t resist the opportunity to don the suit for trunk or treat. Was an experience trying to get ready all the armor on, luckily my wife was able to help with some of the hard to reach parts. Definitely learned how hard it is to see! Couldn’t tell at almost any time where my daughter was. Stepped on her once or twice. Overall it was a fun learning experience. Pretty sure I had the thighs too high and they clipped the butt while walking. Also a good chance I clonked a kid with my weapon, honestly don’t know cause I couldn’t tell what or who bumped into me. My daughter of course had to wear her trooper suit as well. Unfortunately no helmet but she wasn’t in the mood for it. I had to switch the weapon around for the picture, I again couldn’t see where my daughter was and I was unintentionally pointing it right at her. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yeah the back plate is has given me no small amount of issues. I haven’t put the white elastic on the shoulder straps so that should fix that issue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. So I’m basically done with the armor. I’m just waiting for the available funds to buy a neck seal and holster. Other small things to finish. 1. Need to glue my silicone hand guards to my gloves. 2. Add the elastic to hold the shoulder straps. 3. Add Velcro to the boots and shins to keep them in place while moving around. if you see anything I should fix or adjust please let me know. cant decide if this gap in the back will be a problem for approval or not? overall happy with how the sides have turned out. and I also need to paint the snaps. pretty sure the ab buttons are in the right place. and I did get my E-11, it’s from RSpropmaster. Bought off another 501st member. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Without saying anything official one way or the other. It does look like this would need at least a little adjustment to meet 501st standards. But for basic approval it looks pretty close. Not sure how much it would take to get to higher levels if that was your goal. I would hit up the 501st clone trooper forum for a better opinion. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I went with Angelus acrylic leather paint. Took about 10 coats since I didn’t have a sprayer. But end result was satisfactory. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. There are sets sold through here every now and then. Pretty sure there is an Anovos suit unbuilt still for sale in the commissary on here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I did the whole strip and paint thing myself. Worked pretty well. But be aware of how large the opening for your foot is. Mine was a larger size and I had to shim my shins out to make it work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Got the boots together. Just got some cheap shoes from Walmart. Took out the laces and then painted them with Angelus shoe paint. Same thing I did with my shoes for my TK. Then it was just cutting a small plastic piece to cover where the laces are. Attached those with Velcro. Dirtied it up to match the suit and it’s good to go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Weathering level 1 is complete. Didn’t find any good way to add burn/ blaster marks. So I just made it dirty. I used cheap hairspray and dirt from my driveway. First sprayed a layer of hairspray then took a small paintbrush me sprinkled the dirt/ dust on it. Then kind of smash dabbed the dirt around. Then I just took an old rag and lightly swept off the loose dirt. Then dabbed around until it got to where I wanted. Took awhile but I’m pretty happy with how it all turned out. And of course my daughter wanted try it on. All that’s really left to do it fix up some of the strapping. I’m going to make some loops for the shoulders, that will go around the chest armor though the neck hole. Just to hold them as high as possible due to my daughters smallness. Also need to add padding at the chest back connections to keep the plastic from digging into my daughters skin. And sadly I may have to make new forearms. They don’t really fit with a long sleeve shirt. Also she doesn’t like the helmet and says it needs to be bigger. It does fit but she doesn’t like it. So I’ll need to get a larger one of those too.

  11. Finally got some paint on this. Tried white plasti-dip. I do NOT recommend it at all. Bad choice on my part but worth trying I thought. But I will use this as an opportunity to try out some weathering. So now my plan is to do some crazy weathering. Dirty and battle hardened. Blaster bolts and burn marks all over.

  12. Bunch more progress. I plasti dipped the inside of the helmet. Used a small plastic garbage can for the midsection front and back. (Ironically made from the same plastic and almost a perfect match) Used one of those plastic tubes for cleaning wipes for the thighs. Then added a few little strips to just give some definition. I’m really happy with how the forearms turned out. Had some fun with the dremel adding the details. I used a thick chunk of cardboard tubing to make the TD, I glued some plastic to the ends, and a little piece of packaging to imitate the original better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I think I am finally done with painting the boots. It took somewhere between 7-9 layers. I lost count at some point. After how much effort this took I did decide to get some clear protective coating for this. I’ll be going with the same brand Angelus for that. Just to avoid any issues.

  14. I will warn against cutting too much off he helmet early. Especially if you are larger in head size. I have a large head and when I cut my ATA bucket I simply cut where the lines were already. And I almost didn’t have enough material to hold it together and still fit my head inside. And I can confirm that my ATA bucket has the same kind of bumps on the back as well.

  15. Starting to piece things together. For the shoulder I’m simply adding small pieces of plastic cut from other areas across the split, and glueing them in place with E6000. I do not think this will need anymore support to hold together. For the shins I’m trying to decide if I will use Velcro for front and back, or glue the front together and Velcro the backs similar to ANH shins. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
