  1. Yeah, they are some smart people with awesome contingency plans. They have duplicates made, and are remaking them now. The temporary studio is already up and running.
  2. I did this. Its magic. I admit I needed to clean up a little of the edges, so taping off correctly is the key. I have not decided to do the inside of the armor for two reasons. 1. the RSP authenticity stickers with my suit ID and name in it would be an issue... And 2. I have had to modify slightly and or repair some snaps etc. already. I know that once I am awarded Centurion (Because I will... WILL have it), that perhaps I will change my mind, but I can not do the armor until I have that rank first.
  3. I would recommend, start your Build thread with this info. This helps new members who are starting their builds, to see the prep work and the forethought put into simply getting the plastic and getting a E11.
  4. Here's my milestone... FIRST troop. Thrilled to be a part of it. Many thanks to the Carolina Garrison for the setup. This was at the Shriners 13th Annual Comic Expo proceed supporting Orphan Relief funds.
  5. Hello Rosario, welcome. As the other troopers have pointed out, this is the best place. Use this thread as much as you like, These forums are reviewed very often and very active. Stay there in the new recruits section and read read read all the threads before pulling the trigger on a set of armor. Then post a build thread in your respective armor section. We look forward to helping!
  6. Welcome DJ. Looking forward to seeing your build thread.
  7. Excellent Angela! congratulations trooper!

  9. ABS will most likely sink if put in water. Unfortunately so will PVC. If do an ASTM burn test, ABS will have a yellow flame with bluish flickers. Black soot can be seen in the air. PVC has a blue flame with yellow flickers, same for the soot as ABS. If you’re familiar, PVC has a fruity smell when burnt vs ABS is mostly acrid. It’ll be hard to “Prove” however paint from your local hardware store will support bonding to both PVC and ABS collectively. You could, I suppose, send a small sample of each to a rheology lab and that will be definitive. Usually costs about $200 and they’ll need at least 30-50g of polymer to do the test.

  10. Wow! talk about setting the bar! Congratulations!
  11. Man, 2015?! Yes, life gets in the way sometimes. Glad to have you back tho.
  12. Welcome to FISD Tim. RSP is a very reputable builder. Did you see they recently had a fire? They were on top of things to keep their master molds stored elsewhere, and they are back up and running again. So orders might be a little longer on delivery. FYI. I would still order from them again if I had the opportunity.
  13. Thanks Mario and Tony. You guys have definitely helped a lot. Part of this approval is yours too.
  14. Thank you! I’m already working on it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. What an amazing write up. I’m going to start working on these for a centurion approval. Looks like I might need to trim my ab plate to reduce the gap and better align the snap. The rest is easily adjusted. Looking forward to getting it all done and posting those new pics. Thank you! And thank you too Glenn.
  16. Oh dear! I am sorry for the confusion. I do not have the Standard E-11 Blaster. I purchased the RS E-11 Promo. It does not have the D ring as with a few other changes, noted on the CRL page. It came this way with the RS order for the Promo blaster and the fully commissioned kit.
  17. Same. Very. This guy is my idol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Hi Sha sha, ok. I struggled with the frown lasts night a bit, ended up taking off more black than I liked and had to redo it no several of the teeth. I also put in the black mesh while I was at it. Thanks for the understanding of the rivet. Photos attached. For the kidney plate, please don't judge my Star Wars sweats. lol! I took one from each side to show the difference. I think the first time I suited up for the picture, I was a little aggressive on how tight I wanted it to "feel", which caused the overlaping.
  19. Lol!! Sorry not sure why it didn’t show up on my phone. I see it now. No problem. Thank you! It’s clear to me. Making the cuts Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Can you show me on my picture where to cut. I’m not quite getting what you mean. The plastic ends of my belt have 45 angle cuts on them. But I think you mean something else.
