  1. Welcome from another GTer. I'm in central, but I travel out to the NRV often, my son is attending Radford University. Good luck to you on your future build!
  2. So, I think I'm heading in the correct direction, but I'm worried about the gap on the sides. And per@justjoseph63's suggestion I cut out the 4th gap on each side of the frown. Any input appreciate. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks @justjoseph63, both sets of ear have 4 bumps ATA emailed me back and said it was because folk tend to screw these up the first time. :-) I guess they have dealt with enough of us Noobs that they are being proactive. LOL, so it looks like I have to go Stunt. I'm curious about the teeth thing because based on the reference pics, only two of them show 8 teeth and you can clearly see that the 4th one on each side in the pics was just painted over in the others. I didn't want to force the issue trying to get the fourth on on the viewers left side of my face plate if I didn't need to, but if you think I need to do that to get approval, I'll make it happen. Thank you for the feedback, it is very much appreciated!
  4. Thank you. ATA Works got back to me and said the same thing. They are normally really good with communication, I was just being impatient and figured I'd ask the forum members and see if anyone know.
  5. Thank you for that. The folks at ATA got back to me and said the same thing. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. I don't know. I think it looks pretty darn good for my first attempt. Thoughts? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. Didn't get much done today. We spent the day visiting some friends, and shopping at the hobby stores and home depot trying to get the rest of the parts I needed off of the list that@justjoseph63 provided. But I think I did okay, for a computer geek with no creative skills. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  8. Super excited. The second kit arrived today, so my son has his BBB now too! One the the Garrison Armours offered to help us next weekend, so off to a great start! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  9. I'm just going to follow your thread, I'm in the same boat. My BBB day was today, and I have many of the same questions. Good Luck to you!
  10. Well, today is BBB +1. I'm going to try and build my Bucket today. I've watched about a dozen videos on YouTube, for helmet building, and unfortunately, I still have zero confidence, but every great journey begins with a first step, so here we go... PS... I also think that this build is going to switch from hero to stunt as the helmet has too many teeth. My understanding is the hero helmets only have 6 cutouts, 3 on each side, the helmet has 8. But well see when I get to that part if there is something I can do. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. Can do. Still trying to figure out how much is too much when sharing. :-) Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. So went through the box and I'm overwhelmed. But also excited. Couple of questions for those that have done an ATA Works armor build. First, why is there 2 sets of "ears" for the bucket? Second, should I have gotten decals for the bucket, or will I have to order some or hand paint myself? If I want to order, any suggestions from where? Here is a link to my Google build collection. https://photos.app.goo.gl/H4b4UCT7tgmgFLdS6 Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  13. BBB is here! Unfortunately going to be a bit before I can unpack, but it is here. Plus an early Father's Day gift. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  14. BBB Day is approaching. I just got my tracking info. I'm supper excited. Waiting on my boot shipment as well, was told I needed those to fit my calf armor.
  15. I haven't started my build yet, but this was what was suggested to me by a builder in my Garrison. https://www.amazon.com/VELCRO-Brand-Industrial-Strength-Superior/dp/B00006RSP1 I'm thinking of going for Centurion, so I wasn't sure if I'd use it.
