  1. Is a Phasma build just a FO TK painted chrome? I realize that there’s a cape, fingers, different helmet and boots. But is everything else just the regular TK painted? It looks like that in the CRL but I was curious if I was missing some small nuances in my quick study. Thanks
  2. https://www.amazon.com/Personal-Headphone-Wearable-Rechargeable-Traveling/dp/B07HSYD4PB/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1539884893&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=moneid%2Bpersonal%2Bfan&dpPl=1&dpID=410LQfZoUqL&ref=plSrch&th=1&psc=1 seems like it could fit comfortably inside a helmet and it’s about 20 dollars cheaper than some of the ones my friends use as well as being usb rechargeable.
  3. Reporting in from the beautiful Kentucky Bluegrass Garrison. Happy to be a part of the Empire

  5. Collecting suggestions. Thank you for the feedback, let me know if I missed anything. Helmet: Yeah it’s not a full sized helmet I think is the issue. Also I see that a bit of my neck seal was sticking out a bit in these pictures. Shoulder bells: I do have black elastic on the underside of my shoulder bells that run under my armpit and straps that run from the top to the shoulder straps. I will trim some of the bottom away to see if that brings them in a bit. Shoulder straps: need more of a bend in them to get closer to meeting the armor. Thermal Detonator: I’ll trim the clips Belt: remove excess Velcro showing. Drop boxes: I have the strap holding them onto the belt inside the snap but it sounds like to line up with the edge of the belt I’ll need to move them and I’ll probably go with Velcro to hold them in place. Shins: Sounds like I either need to switch legs for my shins and move my knee plate to the opposite one or redo my overlap and Velcro and trim the cover strips. Is the gap between the ab and kidney plate too excessive and require a shim? I’m not trying to weasel out of work, but I was hoping basic approval would allow me to avoid shimming since I’m very pear shaped and I don’t think I’m capable of putting something in there that will look of feel good. I’ll have to do some searching to find a good background for pictures...my wife seems to have an aversion to blank solid color walls. thanks again everyone
  6. https://imgur.com/a/RwAp7JI updated pictures with shoulders belt and butt adjusted. Sorry the old old link isn’t working I’ll edit that one to this newer one. And I realize after speaking with my local garrison that the helmet is not approvable, but I’ll have the proper helmet soon. Also, if I could get some advice or ideas: the armor is comfortable enough but I don’t have enough gap between thighs and shins to really walk very well. I’m going to need to trim to open up that space and I was curious where I can safely trim away and still be approvable to make it easier to walk.
  7. Yeah it’s how they sit on my shoulders. They have elastic on the inside to hold them to my arms and bands attaching them to the white shoulder straps. And no I don’t have the cod connected to the butt.

  9. https://imgur.com/a/OaW6CJG dont know if the gap on the sides between the ab plate and kidney is too excessive and shoulder bells slide down to where you see them. Advice and feedback if it’s acceptable or how to adjust thanks
  10. So trying to figure out what to do with my thighs. Front looks good but to make them fit in the back I’m left with an opening in the shape of a V. I know a lot of guys will go with larger cover strips, but the top of my V opening is about 2.5 inches wide and the bottom is about .75 and I’m worried that a 3 inch cover strip/shim will look terrible. Im also not really confident in my ability to make abs paste and all of that. Im only going for basic approval, but I don’t want an eye sore.
  11. Follow up question: excess e6000 glue that gets pressed out of the sides when glueing pieces. Best way/tool/product to remove it without damaging the armor? thanks
  12. Can’t seem to upload pics so here’s a link https://m.imgur.com/a/0M8xlf2 the one seems smaller but I’ve been told that the TKs aren’t symmetrical. The pics of my arm show that it can’t squeeze over my elbow. Second bicep fits fine. similar issue with the forearms, one of them fits fine but the second is pretty loose and oversized
  13. After trimming my biceps I put some painters tape on to try them on, I’ve found that I can’t get my bicep piece over my elbow to pull it up. I don’t have large arms by any means. Do people just leave a gap between pieces and cover the gap with the glued on plastic piece (sorry can’t think of the term)? I’ve also noticed one of my forearms is pretty loose but I was told that a lot of guys will put foam inside to tighten the grip. thanks
  14. I've received my kit and have begun the work with the help of some greatly helpful members of my local community. In what section should I post my build thread?
