  1. Hello, I am retiring from the 501st Legion. I have submitted my retirement to my garrison and would like to have my account wiped and deleted. thank you very much!
  2. I didn’t glue it to the sugru- I fastened the lenses directly to the sugru as it dried. Was a BIG pain in the.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Ahh, an “OG,” so to speak. Welcome back! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Wook- you should hook this Badlander up with some Maple Moose Eisley action! Once he completes his build, of course! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Good range of motion with the thighs! Nice work! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Hi Matt- intotally hear you about the nerves when working on ABS; you feel like one little screw up and you’re done. It’s actually not that bad, coming from someone who had ZERO costuming experience. You’ll do fine. You have a good support system here In the FISD! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Great job!!! Welcome to Centurion! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. Lol! Just grabbing random people as they walk by, huh? [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I agree. It looked good to me, but I guess I don’t have a well-trained eye for this sort of thing... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. David- the switching out of screws should take no more than 5 mins, tops! [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Awesome job buddy! Welcome aboard!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Wow dude, superglue? You ever see Predator? You remind me of the scene where the one guy says to Jesse Ventura, “you’re bleeding.” To which he responded, “I don’t got time to bleed” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Nice work, good luck with the submission! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Thanks Greg. Pretzel just subscribed, so that brings my TK subscriber count to a whopping 4 (5 if you include myself). [emoji33][emoji2371][emoji19] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Ok, so the repair has been made: With rubber s trim attached and glued into place: But, I realized the clamps made this dent in the plastic- you can see it better at this angle: Again, luckily, this is underneath and towards the neck, so you can’t see it. But still, the helmet is like my Precious. Oh well, what can you do? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. You said I didn’t because we had another bet which I won. I didn’t remember what it was for, but you brought it to my attention and said we were even. You don’t remember? It’s probably on page 47 on Lorelei’s thread. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. What’s her count up to? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Agreed. After consulting Frank, Wook, Sly, and a buddy from my garrison, I decided to not use the paste. One, I’m glad that I don’t have to as it saves me the extra step and time. And two, my luck, I’d make a paste the wrong way and melt holes into the helmet and cause even more damage. So, I will post pics once it has another few hours to dry.

  22. The horror of what happened yesterday still sends chills up my spine.....I was filming a quick video for my YouTube channel ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCN2jWuTVPm-oOeretX2YLWw ).As I was taking my helmet off, I dropped it on the floor. Upon picking it up, I found a 1-inch crack below the chin by the neck line: My reaction: I swooped into action to apply plastic behind the tear to keep it from tearing any further: Luckily the S-trim will cover some of the crack, and it’s below the chin so won’t be noticeable. I just didn’t realize how thin the plastic is on this part of the helmet. Ugh... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
