  1. Which bar should be painted black on the ears?
  2. The frown is painted. I always find painting a little fiddly. Does it look like I stopped in the right spot? I noticed that one of the mistakes that gets brought up for Centurion is over painting the frown.
  3. Cool, thanks. Off to buy gloss white . I thought I had some, but just 3 different brands of flat white. Lol
  4. so, I know the three pairs of rivets on the ab plate and the two on the ammo knee should be painted white, but what about the one on the bottom of the ab?
  5. It's been a week since I reinforced the shoulder straps. Some of the E6000 was trapped in airtight pockets and never cured and it softened the HIPS to the point where I was able to put holes in it with my fingernail. Luckily, it came off fairly easily. I'm sure glad I didn't glue them to my armour right away. Lesson learned!
  6. Board schematic, BOM and code are available here. https://github.com/BipeFlyer/Troopduino I will be updating as I make improvements.
  7. I'll be installing my own homebrew voice changer and I've bought an Aker amp. I see that most people seem to install the amp in their chest, but I find it is a little too thick to fit comfortably. Are there any other ideas? I'm starting to think I may have to design my own amp and put speakers in the bucket. Maybe I should buy Tony's hovi tips and amp, but I like doing things myself when I can. It's more fun that way. Tony; will your hovi tips meet Centurion approval, or are they something you swap in after approval?
  8. I had intended to use Sugru, but when I saw Alay's post I liked the idea of being able to easily change the lenses if they got scratched.
  9. I made the visor removable using Chicago screws, like Alay and TKZombie did. I used this green grinding screen that I saw on another post. Sorry, I can't remember who originally posted it. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B003X3UAMY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I made EVA foam grommets to help keep the Chicago screws in place and reduce some strain.
  10. I used this elastic. It is very stiff laterally and doesn't pull to the side. https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B002XNQNNK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_R3b4CbCYZJ2EM
  11. Ab buttons. I made vinyl masks with my Cricut. The edges of the vaccuum forming aren't sharply defined, so I tried to judge where the edge transitioned.
  12. I didn't have any ABS wide enough, so I used HIPS to reinforce the shoulder straps. They feel pretty skookum now.
