  1. Thanks all! You're fast with those references! Exactly what I needed. Definitely a learning curve for the painting. Using a toothpick seems to be helping with the edges. Also, got my new decals coming from Trooperbay as I couldn't cleanly take the other ones off! Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk
  2. I'm working on painting the vocoder. I can't find any visual references for what the underside of it should look like. Anyone have these handy? Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk
  3. You are so right! Definitely veering the wrong direction. I'll carefully attempt a fix tomorrow. Thanks for the feedback! Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk
  4. Tube stripe decals. That was super stressful putting them on!! Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk
  5. There is no particular instruction book, but lots of references and videos on YouTube for learning. I'm only a few months in to my very first armor build and I can tell you that the community here is incredible and will answer any and every question you have!
  6. Vulcan salute hahaha I must be missing something. What white plate are you talking about? My kit came with the silicone and also some plastic guards but I just assumed it was so I had a choice. Do the plastic ones go on top of the silicon?? Applying these things is a lot more complicated than anticipated! Genuinely considering trying using Velcro. Then if I needed to replace my gloves it would be easy to switch out the guards!
  7. The stuff that @revlimiter suggested above may be the key. It has a plastics primer on it so I'll probably try that.
  8. @Doggydoc that's good info. I think the loctite that @revlimiter suggested is CA glue but I'll have to double check. My biggest concern is that it sounds rather permanent so if I misalign it, I'm out of luck!
  9. I'm having a hard time finding the Tandy 24 snaps here. That, and the ones I did find were crazy expensive. I get that you don't want to cheap-out on them for sure. But, has anyone found any alternative brands that still hold up well?
  10. The other day I tried gluing one of the flexible handguards to the glove using E-6000. Epic failure. When I put the glue onto the handguard, it just rolls off. I tried sanding it based on the instructions in one of the forums, but you can't really sand silicon or latex or whatever it is. Any other suggestions? Thought about maybe a different method like velcro or something!
  11. Added a couple drops of glue on the brow trim as suggested. Good tip! I'm looking at the tube stripes now. I'm going with the decals for now (don't hate!). I took the decals and temporarily affixed them on there. They barely fit, if at all. Here's pics of them on there, also with a pencil as if I'm not mistaken, they're supposed to be that width from the top of the cheek. Should I just attach them, starting as close to the ear as possible? Should I remove one of the blue lines or would that get me immediately discharged from the Empire?
  12. Welcome to the journey! The troopers here are incredibly helpful so there is no question that someone won't be able to answer!
  13. Hahaha well I'm glad it's wonky then!! I must get a little too caught up in trying to get it perfect to the point it stresses me out! I must look at the haphazard outfits everyone in the movies wore to chill out. And really, seeing my little boy and girl putting the bucket on their tiny heads and dancing around like monkeys reminds me to just have fun with it! Because it IS fun and this has been a dream of mine for years and I didn't think I could accomplish it but I am thanks to all you amazing troopers!!!
