  1. I managed with a coat hanger, taking the plastic cover off and had a nice grease metal look under it. Found a broom handle with reasonable diameter. Most important to make careful even spaced wraps around the broom. You don’t want to try and adjust them by hand afterward, never evens out right. After I cut to the right length and it is static but jiggles around making a reasonable sound I like. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Sadly my bucket doesn’t have the room for so much goodness. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Welcome to FISD. Sounds like you are already on your way and many here will offer their help. Research and questions will get your armor ready for service to the Empire. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Congratulations trooper, welcome to the service of the Empire. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Your attention to detail and efforts will pay off in the end. Keep up the good work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I used a mix of elastic and nylon for both flex and preventing pieces from being out of position. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. If making changes to the TD, you might want to rotate it so the panel is facing out. I had to make a similar change to mine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I think you align it at the bottom and trim at the top. No one will see the tops of the biceps under the shoulder bells. Never worked with this problem so not completely confident. I think for aesthetics you want the bottom to be roughly the same diameter as the top of the forearm. That way it looks uniform in size. Obviously big enough to slip over your forearm and not be split apart by your biceps ( in case you have a gun show going up there). Some guide images show a V cut to keep bottom smaller allow space for said gun show. Keep in mind large biceps might make bells harder to k
  9. Looking great, should be easy basic for you. That helmet looks amazing with paint and ear angle. One fix for higher levels, try rotating the TD to show panel more horizontal. My TD needed to be rotated too, you can see in my build log. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Congratulations and welcome to the Empire. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I think the belt is upside down? Usually it is right over left and the excess ending as mentioned at the end of the TD. Not a requirement for EIB according to CRL. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Excellent set of armor Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. My thoughts, not official in any way, is no one is going to get a ruler out on your armor. If it looks good then should be ok. I used Chicago screws and they have worked fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. You just want a balance of gap between biceps and forearm and forearm to hand guard. Also you can lower your chest piece down. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I had to put a similar V opening in my thighs to make them fit high enough. Larger strip in the back is usually ok. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
