    Digz Graavz First Build - ANH Stunt from AP

    Thanks. I found a local trooper who's 10 minutes away (TK69103) and we met up. He showed me his build and is going to work with me on mine to help avoid any mistakes he made. He even gave me a new tube of E6000 and a bunch of his leftovers (strapping, snaps, etc), I'm just waiting for the package to arrive.... A postal strike delayed my trigger by a couple of days, so my day off today sadly will not involve any work on the blaster. Sigh. I bought some black and white packs of Sugru as well, as somewhere on here it was mentioned that it's good for installing the lenses.

    A few setbacks and delays.... My father in law snapped the selector switch on my blaster, so I've upgraded to a functioning one: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/E11-BLASTER-STERLING-SAFETY-LEVER-AND-3-POSITION-SWITCH/123295999786?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 And while machining out the blaster the Dremel slipped and I took a chunk out of my trigger, so I've ordered an actual Sterling one. Authenticprops is about 3-4 weeks behind schedule on their last batch, so no armour yet... My voice changer is on the way too - Voicebooster with iComm and a wireless mic. I've gotten everything else - Boots, black suit, dark lens, helmet foam, neck seal, fans.... Just can't wait to get it all together.

    Cameras for eyes?

    There are a ton of wireless cameras available.... guys are gluing them on small drones. I'm guessing someone with more know how than me could figure this out PDQ.

  5. Has anyone found a good setup to improve helmet audio using a Smart Phone app? I've done a whopping 10 minutes of research and there are a ton of apps out there, so I figure it's gotta be easy enough to rig up (ideally) 2 microphones and earbuds. Has anyone done this setup? Thanks

    HELP! Broken trigger on Resin blaster

    You guys are awesome with the advice and quick responses. I'm really starting to like this community. Way nicer than those Jedi jerks I spoke to an Ebay seller who has a ton of blaster parts and that I got my selector switch from. She's been great and is going to list some Sterling triggers soon. https://www.ebay.ca/usr/vmusicstore?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2754

    HELP! Broken trigger on Resin blaster

    Yeah, I have searched for Sterling triggers with no success. I don't have access to any CNC type machines, just my 3d printer. What I really need are accurate measurements for the whole trigger. I may go off of images and scale up/down as needed.
  9. Hi everyone, So, here's the story - Father in Law broke my selector switch, so I decided to upgrade to a functioning 3 way switch. Cool, as I was debating doing that anyways. BUT while machining out the blaster to accept the switch, I bumped the trigger and took a chunk out. The end is now 1/2 as thick as it should be. It looks like it has been whittled down. I can't find a decent 3d printer image for one, or actual triggers for sale. Any help sourcing one would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Boots are ordered. Other soft goods have all arrived. Still waiting for my armour. My blaster is 90% - It's all painted and weathered. I just need to make and install the clear glass for the counter, and I have to install a new selector switch (actual Sterling one arrives Monday), as my father in law snapped mine off, forcing the issue on installing a functional one LOL. I'll post pics soon.
  11. Hi Everyone, I'm fairly new here. My armour hasn't arrived yet (ANH Stunt from Authenticprops), but my E11 Blaster has arrived. It's a black resin cast and I'm working on the paint job etc. I have 2 main questions: 1 - The scope - Is the decal a good way to go and deemed acceptable? 2 - The counter - Does the glass cover need to be D shaped?? I've seen images of the actual counter where it's actually flush, but I'm going for accuracy if possible. Are there simple solutions for the D shaped lens or am I sanding plexiglass? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Thanks again everyone. Looks like I will get the neck seal and black suit from Trooperbay and boots from Imperialboots, who also offer a strapping kit: https://www.imperialboots.com/product/strapkit/ Is the kit a good plan? Also - I am now researching voice changers...

    Thanks! Are their neck seals acceptable for centurion? 501 says " Black with horizontal ribs, fitted to the wearer, and extending from the base of the neck to conceal the entire neck. ", but I have read somewhere that an "S" style is preferential to the "U" style. Also, how fitted does it need to be? My neck is about 16 1/2 but the one from Imperial Boots is about 17 3/4. https://www.imperialboots.com/product/neckseal/ Thanks again everyone.

    Hello from Waterdown Ontario

    I've started a thread about my construction process. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/45557-digz-graavz-first-build-anh-stunt-from-ap/ Thanks everyone for the show of support!
  15. Hi everyone. I am finally taking the plunge after dreaming of this for years. I've ordered a fully trimmed kit from AP with hopes of getting it up to Centurion at some point. I was going to order boots from TK boots, but they email I got back from them said " I'm sorry, Chris, but we're sold out of 10's and also 11's and tentatively, we're closing TK Boots. ", so it looks like I will need to source these somewhere else. I'll be sourcing a neck seal and the body suit as well.
