  1. I'm going for centurian too, albeit with an esb stunt build. I had to paint the inside of my hovi tips white, and also the outer rim (but in a weathered way). See attached pics (my lid, and screen used). Can someone with more knowledge say if its also required for an anh hero helmet? Sent from my SM-A715F using Tapatalk
  2. Morning all, Another test torso fitting, but with the undersuit. Things that need sorting out. Back piece: Shorten the shoulder tabs, and bend them in using a hot (not too hot) hair dryer. Would need to trim the bottom at the sides where it overlaps the sides of the kidney plate. What I think it actually needs is replacing with the standard size back plate (currently xl) Butt: Heat the sides and bend in, as when viewed from the front they stick out and create a gap. Again, proper solution is to get the standard size part (currently xl), as aside from the gap it feels baggy all over, and I
  3. Ah, OK. I'd only heard don't have it in a cold room. Cool. Thanks Sent from my SM-A715F using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks Joseph. I'm a tall fella (6'4") so thought ordering the tall back would be right for me, but it just doesn't feel right, and what you're saying makes a lot of sense. Thanks [emoji106] Sent from my SM-A715F using Tapatalk
  5. I added an internal strip there too for the same reason. Thanks for all of this. Really appreciated [emoji106] Sent from my SM-A715F using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks for this. I always leave for 24 hours in the warmest room in the house, but this is the first time anyone has said to me about sanding or scoring the surfaces (obvious now you say it!). I have armour from RWA in UK, and he doesn't mentioned it in his videos. Think that's going to be the trick. Now I'm worried about the other pieces I've already glued [emoji31] (guess they're not a problem till they're a problem [emoji1696]). I have some gorilla glue clear contact adhesive too. Do you think that might be a better idea given that the shin needs to be flexed more than other parts to tak
  7. Following on from 'off-centre-coverstrip-gate', the e6000 plus didn't hold (even with an internal coverstrip), so I've got to re do it anyway! [emoji2959] Sent from my SM-A715F using Tapatalk
  8. You don't know how much of a relief it is to hear that!. Thank you [emoji120] Sent from my SM-A715F using Tapatalk
  9. About 10 hours in from applying glue, and just noticed that the bottom of one of my cover strips is off centre at the bottom [emoji31] I'm guessing it's best to just rip off and do it again (kinda answering my own question here I think) (I was going to sand off to the coverstrip with my dremel anyway, so the gap wouldn't be an issue) Sent from my SM-A715F using Tapatalk
  10. Like it [emoji106] Thanks for this Sent from my SM-A715F using Tapatalk
  11. I have some short strips of metal to act as thin spacers, but not sure if using metal reduces their effective strength(?) Edit: Geek warning Seems how metal spacers affect magnetism is complicated, but looks like thin metal spacers reduce the magnetic attraction (I think). Will switch to plastic spacers. https://www.kjmagnetics.com/blog.asp?p=block-or-extend 2nd edit: Does 'feel' like using plastic spacers allows a stronger pull than metal spacers
  12. Today's lesson is that I need more magnets and I need smaller diameter magnets that fit in the molding behind the cover strips
  13. Thanks. Will do [emoji106] Sent from my SM-A715F using Tapatalk
  14. I'm thinking I may need to replace the xl butt and back with standard size [emoji848] Sent from my SM-A715F using Tapatalk
  15. So, here's my clearance photos, yeah? [emoji1] How it feels and fits... To have the bottom of the chest just above the large button plate means either the top of the chest is up against my neck or the cod feels too low. Can get top of the sides of kidney and ab to line up, but as I'm wearing it in these pics it feels like it's all hanging too low (saggy but plate), but raising it all up makes the chest push into my neck and the back stands even further off my body. Should the butt and cod be quite fitted? Suggestions? Keep getting overlap at back/kidney and kidney/butt junctions, so thinkin
