  1. Rob Kittell explicitly states the following on his TK canvas belt website listing: "STOP! IMPORTANT! The size you select needs to be your exact waist circumference measurement taken with your armor on. DO NOT add length for the Velcro overlap in the back of the belt; I take that into account when I make it." If you don't already have your torso pieces finished you can do what I did and trim the edges of your ab and kidney pieces to a proper fitment for you, and then take your measurement. That would be far more accurate than a generalized +5 inches to your waist.
  2. Daniel has shared with personal cell number with several members who have had conversations with him over the past half year, and members of the SoCal and Imperial Sands Garrisons have also had dealings with him in recent months. Hopefully he comes through for everybody who still has active orders with him; I know he’s has lots of life issues, though that doesn’t excuse the lack of communication.

  3. Hi Brandon! A fellow Georgian here, though I am on the opposite end of the state up north right outside Chattanooga, TN. As for bucket electronics, and ICOMM with Aker amp is another option you may consider, and I have a section on helmet internals in my resource thread below. Though the thread is primarily for ANH builds, it has lots of generalized information that may apply should you need to make alterations to your ESB suit to make it fit you. Or as Glen said, you can very easily use your ESB armor as a base suite and gain approval for an ANH Stunt and Hero, or HWT, with the appropriate mods. Quite a few people have done that, and I know @TheRascalKing has documented his conversions pretty well. EDIT: I think we'd all also love to see your BBB photos!
  4. Very cool, Glen. I saw the 85421 ID (instead of your avatar) on Tapatalk and had to do a double take since I figured you had already maxed out all your kits at L3. Lookin good as always! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. In order to maximize coverage of the your black undershirt between your chest plate and bells, as well as bring the outer edge the bells more flush with your biceps, you could trim some off the insides of your bells in a rounded fashion. This is how the original suits were done. Here’s a rough mock on your image, which was just an example done on my phone, and certainly not exact (the marks on the viewers right is probably too exaggerated). I’d recommend trimming little by little. And here is a screen-used reference, on the left. EDIT: I’ll add that your bell on the viewer’s left might already be as flush as you can get it without trimming off more of the bottom return edge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I thought I remembered Shawn saying he was getting out of the business, maybe in the HWT part of the forum, but I didn’t recall who had taken over for him. Good to know it’s in Dave’s hands now. If only I could ever finish my own HWT pack build. Or my TK for that matter. Haha. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Off the top of my head I can’t recall kit makers, but I suspect there are ample resources at the MEPD detachment. Perhaps somebody will come along with more TD info than I. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Last year I added Dan's initial holster placement inquiry thread to my resource page, and though I've been meaning to add this thread for several months, I've finally now gotten to it. Hopefully this EXCELLENT thread can continue to point builders in the right direction with their kits!
  9. Thread updated with the Hovi Tip Found Part discovery from last month and Glen's current ANH holster guide thread and diagrams. Additions since my previous edit or within a couple months will always be marked accordingly in orange.
  10. Cool foam TK! You’re in the right place for all things shiny white. I myself have very slowly been working on an ATA kit myself, and you’ll find a link to my build thread in my signature. I also compiled an all-in-one reference material threat that includes a long list of other helpful ATA build threads; you’ll just need to scroll way down on my first post. Looking forward to following you on your journey once BBB Day arrives! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Are you getting all your soft parts such as neck seal, belt, and gloves from RS? Boots? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Welcome, Bobby! You’ll be off to a good start with the aforementioned resources! I’m hoping to resume my TK build here shortly after a hiatus of about half a year due to working three jobs by myself in an office that was previously three employees. Be sure to post lots of photos and ask questions in a build thread, and you’ll have all the help you could want. p.s. I’m jealous of your CO location. I was up in RMNP last month and greatly enjoyed the weather. And the scenery of course. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah Daniel has never really operated through his Etsy shop, so it doesn’t surprise me that he took his E-11 listing (the only one he ever had) and store offline. IG and FB are his mediums of communication, but it’s been over a month since his last post, though he did add some stories more recently than that. My last comm with him was during the last week of June. Hope you get your blaster soon. I know somebody who has been waiting since December, I think. Hellhounds makes excellent products, so it’s a shame the wait time has extended to what it is now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. As Glen said, there is so much information that research is needed, but there are also many threads that compile a lot of helpful information. The vetted armor vendor list is an excellent place to start. I also have my own compilation, linked below, that may be of use to you. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/49412-all-in-one-tk-anh-stunt-index-of-resources-by-maskedvengeance/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Keep in mind, too, that the Shadow Stormtrooper is actually from the Spec Ops Detachment, so you may also want to post on their forum. That was certainly a good deal you got on your Anovos TK. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Looking great, as always, Ardeshir! And I’m super excited about about your future film industry news! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Got back to the forum just at the perfect time to see this awesome development! Very exciting, indeed! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I’ve been on vacation so am a little late to this. Congrats Justin! Your enthusiasm and dedication to serving the detachment are exemplary! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Hi Ron! Nice to see MidSouth represented here; I'm just a little south of you outside Chattanooga. As for your DLT-19 question, Justin is right that Praetorian has been unresponsive. If you're looking for a rubber DLT, and have the credits, you might try @Hellhounds via his Instagram Page (linked). He has a DLT in the works, though it isn't complete yet. If you'd like to see an example of his work, below you'll find a link to my photo review of his rubber E-11, and I compare various aspects of it to Praetorian and Hyperfirm, the previous old guard of rubber blasters. Daniel (Hellhounds) makes an amazing product, though they're not cheap, and also take a while to build. But he is certainly dedicated to his craft, which is why it takes so long, and you'd not be disappointed with one of his blasters. FYI Daniel has since updated certain components of his E-11s for more accuracy, including the clearing strip in the bolt and additional greeblies around the magazine.
  20. Hi Rob! Great to see you back at it, and congrats on your little one! That's sorta what happened to me in a way; an infant, COVID, and work. I got a little obsessed with my TD build back in the fall, and below is a link to the first of my two current posts on that component. As far as your pipe size is concerned, you can actually simply pick up any 2" (which is measured as the inner diameter) PVC pipe at any hardware store. Instead of a long 8' section, I grabbed a 2' length at Lowes or HD. If you get white or black, you'll need to paint it, but if you get the gray conduit, you can likely leave it unpainted. Part 2 (at the very end of the post) of my TD build goes quite in-depth into the diameters of the pipe, and it's important to know that the original props were 68mm outer diameter, while most US and Canada makers use the imperial (haha) 2" measurements. ATA is no different, which is what my armor is, and the end caps fit the 2" pipe. As for the paint color, I initially painted mine too dark (using Ukswrath's old suggestion), but Andrew pointed out a primer (Testors 1237 spray primer, used in conjunction with a shiny clear coat). Since the TD color is meant to match the gray paint on the helmets of TKs, I actually found Testors 1238 (the spray version of the liquid 1138) to be a perfect match, though I haven't documented that on my build thread yet. Hopefully this is helpful to you! I look forward to continuing to watch your progress!
  21. Congrats Chemi! You’ll be a fine addition to the excellent DO team, and hopefully you all will get to see my submissions in this term! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Congrats Devin! Excellent work! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Cool Glen! I still can’t get over the TDs being shot like mortars. Haha. I mean, maybe with my TD obsession I should build one of these packs just for kicks... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. I’m still constantly amazed by your masking and feathering skills. That decade of imaging work work certainly shows! Your highlights and light sources are always spot on too, which as you said, is important to get correct on the set too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Looking sharp, Devin! It's been a pleasure providing feedback outside of FISD, and Christine should have you approved in no time!
