  1. Perfect that’s what I figured from your build post. Just wanted to make sure. Thanks again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Forearm sizing question: I have sized both forearms to myself and taped them up. The left requires almost no trimming but the right needs a bit. I have measured many times to make sure both are exactly the same widths top to bottom and I’m ready to cut. My question is, (on the right forearm #17 and #19) which do I cut? Do I cut a little off both? I am thinking to cut 19 since it seems to have way more space to cut than 17 but I just want to make sure before I get to it. In the first photo 17 is where my index finger is and 19 is my thumb. You can see the overlap between. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Disregard my question about the amount of return at the wrists. Just found the answer on another post. Still wondering why though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Ps, the last photo is the bottom. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Left forearm preassembled and fits perfect. Luckily I didn’t have to really resize it but this is waaay more a pain in the A then I feel it should have been! Exacto blows for cutting rounded edges, the snip I got are also useless for those! I had to carefully carve them out with the exacto which took forever. Ended up using a dremel with cutting wheel for the long straight edges (butt edges) and sanding after. Saw a video where someone placed the forearm on a counter, held a ruler on it with one hand and scored with a utility knife. I couldn’t even get the forearm to lay flat on a table cause of the return edges! [emoji35][emoji35][emoji35][emoji35] So one down! On to the next after work. Now, I know it says no return at the wrist for higher level. Absolutely no return? I feel it will look cheap if it’s literally just the edge of the thin ABS. I took about half the width off so far. Is that enough? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks. I’m doing a series from each film. All colored pencil. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Just got these guys for some quick trimming and better curves than the exacto! Now just have to wait till I’m done at work!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. “Rounded” like to take the return edge off the wrists and whatnot. I know I’ll do a good amount of sanding anyway, but I always look for the most efficient ways of doing things. Very OCD they way. I’ll look into tin snips. I have a few but those are huge and totally wont do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. So besides exacto knives and a box cutters, what type of scissors/snips do you guys prefer for rounded edges? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Want to start sizing and as I get the forearm (right) on I realize how huge these are compared to my arms. I don’t have tiny arms but this makes me look miniature! So, I know I obviously will need to trim maybe an inch or so to get it smaller. But looking at them together as is, they are already a little oval shaped. So in my head, trimming them will make them even more oval shaped. So I’m thinking a few things in prepping. I’m either going to have to cut them and then add more plastic to round them out, OR cut them and then very carefully heat them and bend them to shape. So the overall end product is cylindrical.

  11. looking at Praetorian's FB, there are three models of the E11. Is one better than / preferred over the others? Do people prefer the rubber ones over ones with electronics? Don't care about price, just want the best I can get. If I'm going to do it, I like to do it right the first time.
  12. ohhhhhhhh thats what that is. ha wow! im an idiot. never put that together but can totally see how it would work now that I know what that is.
  13. on the 501st CRL for level 2 (other troopers have level 3?) it says to have a folding stock but then says stock doesn't need to function?....?? 1: every photo I have ever seen, I swear there isn't a stock. Am I a crazy person? 2: So they want it foldable or not? Foldable to me means that it functions... "correct style scope" ummmm..... so? hahahaha I am sure praetorian will know whats up. just thought that was confusing. so much info everywhere!! my head is going to explode!!
