  1. Ben, Glad to move our conversation from the FB group to here. Please see the very similar question I asked during my 3D Print ROTK Build: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/49826-the-bigjasonis-rotk-3d-print-build-thread/page/4/ About 2/3 of the way down page 4, we had a discussion about what I was calling "holes." I ended up making full on tabs, but am now replacing these with something way more accurate. Hope this helps.
  2. Those are the ones I was just looking at; I'll try them out. Great job so far. Also love all the neodymium magnets. Giving me ideas...
  3. Justin, Awesome progress. I am so stealing the adhesive foam idea. Where did you find this stuff?
  4. So, similar to how I started the 3D print build, I'm going to continue this one with some boring (totally subjective ) stuff. Hey, some may be incredibly entertained by a dude sewing accessories and that's cool, but in order to get this costume to the level I want it, I'm not leaving any stones unturned. Let me explain why I'm going this route first. Ahh... more solid advise from Justin @TheRascalKing. So, after completing my last build, I realized that I kind of treated strapping as an afterthought. This is a very easy mistake to commit when you're looking at a ton of coo
  5. I saw the logo too and forgot to mention it. Those things always rub off whenever I get clothes with them. However, not all the styles had the logo. So, if you want a slightly thicker version for the colder months it's there logo free.
  6. Hey all, I just went to target and while I was there I saw these. As @AnSkeleton said, there's several different options, but the ones that were probably the best were the Fitted Tights- All in Motion Black DPCI 041-06-0578 $22 and the Long Sleeve Fitted T-Shirt DPCI 041-02-5596 $20. I would have grabbed a pair of the pants, but the only ones they had had a noticeable cell phone pocket on the thigh that would be visible in costume, the good ones were either size S or XXL. The ones I listed are the thinner compression options. They had heavier ones that they called "fleece" (even though there
  7. Wow. So it's been a while since I've even thought about updating my build thread. I have a bunch of reasons, but ultimately they're all excuses. Long story short is I haven't really been working on anything significant. In the end however, I have a feeling all this "down time" is going to pay off huge. I have been doing a lot of 3D printing for myself and others, but a lot of the stuff I've been doing kind of revolves around this build. Yes, I'm using Jimi's kit, but does that mean things can't be modified to make the costume more accurate? Of course not; I've seen others do the sa
  8. Funny, last week this conversation came up on a FB group I follow. I used the technique Glen outlined on my 3d Print ROTK. The mesh fabric found at most hardware stores is a very flexible plastic that can easily be held in place with a few drops of hot glue. This is a very simple install. Please excuse the sloppy interior and the chips from where I dropped my bucket on the driveway. The only issues I have with it is that all the window screen mesh I've found stateside appears to be square shaped rather than rectangular if that makes sense. Also, the fabric is not "
  9. David, Welcome aboard! You are not alone, we've all been there before. Honestly, you've taken the first appropriate step and introduced yourself. You can now expect to be flooded with information on how to get started. Absorb as much as you can, because the people in this community are awesome and more than helpful. I'm assuming that you've already started navigating the forums, but just in case, check out the Getting Started section. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/38-getting-started-read-this-first/ For me, I kind of already knew the direction I wanted to go, but still I natu
  10. Art, I haven't looked at your build in a while, but am now very interested in what you're doing with the tears and traps; we just had a discussion about this on the FB group. Question: I can't tell from the pic whether yours are put in over glued in styrene, or if you just replaced the rear tears with the 3d ones entirely? The reason I'm asking is because of these pictures: The top pic is the Nico Henderson helmet, but it's pretty consistent with the other pics which were posted by Paul Prentice. The third pic are resin printed tears and traps with a .5mm black b
  11. Romain, I really like your plan. I've been thinking about repainting my old ROTK armor into something from The Mandalorian, possibly a Remnant Stormtrooper, the Incinerator, or even the newer Mortar Trooper. I think these new variations are outstanding. Let me throw up two screen shots: The Mandalorian Incinerator is entirely a Rogue One/ Anthology/ New Generation Stormtrooper. For that reason, I think your choices are spot on; either the 850 Armor Works or Jimmiroquai armor should work. Please check out @Nicker's WIP here: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/49446-remna
  12. Jason, Welcome aboard! Nice to have another Jason checking in from Garrison Tyranus land, especially since you live right down the road from me. If we both start trooping in ROTK armor, we can really mess with some people. We'll have to meet up after the world calms down a bit. However, in the meantime, you've found the right place. This community is awesome and more than well prepared to assist. I'm glad you stumbled across my 3D print adventure. I feel that both my satisfaction and frustration in attempting the project are well documented. While I like the kit I built, there'
  13. Lol. This goes straight back to the question I asked about being stuck on an "interest list" for four months, while receiving unlimited emails about other junk I'm not interested in. So, it looks like the helmet is street dated for January 10th with a US price tag of $99. Must... hold... back... do... not... buy...
