  1. Nice! Looks better constructed than the goldstar.
  2. Looks amazing! Did Marc happen to mention when the kit may be available to the public?
  3. Hi C.J., Welcome to the fun! -Ray P.S. You have me wanting to read the Riftwar books again.
  4. Looks like the gallery for holsters still has the old diagram.
  5. I hope so! Even if I don't have my kit ready my camera is! Honestly it is fun to even just hang out and take pictures.
  6. Hi Joe, I'm from Bellevue and I'm in the very slow process of assembling an AM kit. If you'd like to take a look at it before you decide on what kit to get, let me know. I've only cut the biceps and forearms to fit so far. The rest has only some return edge removed. -Ray
  7. It will be interesting to see if he'd sell a kit that's compatible with Tino's completion kit. I can't wait till this is available for the public!
  8. Caleb has a review of the Hellhounds blaster
  9. It's been almost a year since I placed my order and I've not yet received it. I hope they are still around!
  10. Forearms - Trimming The right forearm has a definite flat spot on both sides of the top piece as seen in the top photo. My thought is to measure down 8mm from there and make my cut. (red arrows on the bottom photo). The bottom piece of the forearm would then be trimmed to fit. The left arm's top piece would be trimmed to the same measurements as the right and then the bottom piece would be trimmed to fit as well. Does this sound like a good plan?
  11. Forearms - Removing the Return Edges The forearms had a tighter radius than the biceps so I had to make some relieve cuts before using the curved lexan scissors. Files made quick work of the rest. I still need to square off the wrists but that can wait for later.
  12. Forearms Untrimmed Out of the box the left forearm has a uniform length of of 26 cm / 10-1/4" and a circumference of 33.3 cm / 13-3/16" near the elbow and then 29 cm / 11-3/8" at the wrist. The right forearm has a mobility cut already in it. The long side is 27.5 cm / 10-3/4" and the short side is 25.5 cm / 10". Circumference is 41.5 cm / 16-3/8" near the elbow and 35 cm / 13-3/4" at the wrist. Shots of both.
  13. Biceps - Final Trim and Inner Cover Strips Added Our eternal (it seems) kitchen remodel is done. Well, complete enough to pass final inspections. So I'm going to try to focus on finishing my kit before we move on to the next project. I decided to move forward with the biceps. I trimmed and glued the inner cover strips for the right bicep. Trying it on and moving my arm around in multiple directions I believe it may be just a little too tight. Because of that, for the left bicep pieces, I made the 'final' cuts leaving about 1-2m more material than the right so it's now about 4-8mm wider in circumference. This seems better. It shifts up and down really nice. If the right arm gives me fits down the road I can always expand the joints without an issue. I still need to level off the bottom of the biceps but I will wait until after final fittings for that and to add the outer cover strips.
  14. It took me a while to find them too. It is in that drop down list labeled "Die Set for Ring Snaps 24 Ligne/15mm (5/8")" or "Die Set for Spring Snaps 24 Ligne/15mm (5/8")" depending on which type of snaps you have.
