  1. Regarding using wood blocks for helping the shaping of the return edges, Cricket made a jig that she used several times to recreate return edges and to flatten out the creases made from shaping those areas. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/41502-crickets-wtf-hero-build-even-more-tk-for-the-vertically-challenged/?do=findComment&comment=592439
  2. Basically heat a big pot of water to about 180-190 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the end of whatever your need to reshape into the water for about 30 seconds, remove, form it to the shape you want and then run it under cold water until it's normal temperature again. I have a decent tolerance for heat so a just use rubber gloves to hold and squeeze it. You may need to gradually work your way to the desired shape. I wouldn't get to forceful with it to begin with. And E6000 isn't phased by the heat.
  3. Regarding the forearms, AM's are kind of wonky. I've lost track of the number of times I've hot water bathed mine. I think I've finally got them to a shape I like. I'm having the the same issues as you with the cover strips. I think I'll look into the white E6000 as well.
  4. Nice! Looks better constructed than the goldstar.
  5. Looks amazing! Did Marc happen to mention when the kit may be available to the public?
  6. Hi C.J., Welcome to the fun! -Ray P.S. You have me wanting to read the Riftwar books again.
  7. Looks like the gallery for holsters still has the old diagram.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. Caleb has a review of the Hellhounds blaster
  12. It's been almost a year since I placed my order and I've not yet received it. I hope they are still around!
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
