  6. If its ABS Arabic Gum + Hydrogen peroxide Mix at a 3:1 ratio. Blue tape the area, cake on let in sun light. Time wise is a real guess game. Down here i can get 33% or 30 volumen of H2O2, it usually only needs 2-3 hrs tops to get the ABS. No idea what the H2O2 is in Canada, USA i have only seen it at 3%

  11. Any one that states "the molds sold by lucasarts" is your cue to get out of there with out looking back !!!!! My best advice is this letter i send to all ppl that ask me were to go or start here at the FISD ================================================================ Dark regards & Imperial Greetings for the FISD!!!!

  13. Great idea!!!!! If it will only be a dunk ( in and out) i dont think it will be a problem. now swimming in cholrided water........ actually i think it will only reduce the half life by only a few weeks so (over all i think your fine.........

Well that's like asking which heart medication is best for your heart condition Answeres vary greatly there isnt a 100% correct answer to that question. U need to research and familiaries your self with all the different armors out there. The FISD is the best place to start reading, also i like this place it is almost up-to-date on that info---------------- I am unsure of which to go with; ROTJ, ANH or ESB. Thoughts? Thats also up to you Which is your favorite of the movies, also u need to know of all of the TK makes there are ( link is above) In your opinion, what are the best internal mods to use for the helmet? Heart Medications again ...... one trooper has even installed a infrared camera in there helmet.... In your opinion, what is/are the best made grade 'A' E-11 blasters, preferable modified with sound and light effects? Same as above..... To many options to give u a straight answer. Like i said your in the best place on this system (FISD) to find your answeres. Good luck Plus your in Colorado Great ppl there!!! as Ingrid said get in contact with your local 501st they will be of great help!!!
  16. Gracias for the welcome!!!! Truly honored to be part of the admins!!!!
  17. WOW CONGRATS!!!! so happy to see Paul there in his Officer attire, very appropriate!!!!
  18. Absolutely!!!! I helped out with a Brick or two way back when, will gladly help out with a few more bricks for the up grade!!!!! Any money sent your way is a real and actual investment as far as making a TK goes! If u think about this Detachment is a Haven of the Arts as far as TK go...... The research of the original armors, there making, what was used then. At the same time it cover the same things with current modern armor. This is our way to support, encourage and aid our Detachment, Think of it as Patronage. Arts Patronage if u will. I took the liberty to borrow this from Wikipedia: From the ancient world onward, patronage of the arts was important in art history. It is known in greatest detail in reference to medieval and Renaissance Europe, though patronage can also be traced in feudal Japan, the traditional Southeast Asian kingdoms, and elsewhere—art patronage tended to arise wherever a royal or imperial system and an aristocracydominated a society and controlled a significant share of resources. Rulers, nobles and very wealthy people used patronage of the arts Some languages still use the term mecenate, derived from the name of Gaius Maecenas, generous friend and adviser to the Roman Emperor Augustus. Art patronage was especially important in the creation of religious art. TheRoman Catholic Church and later Protestant groups sponsored art and architecture, as seen in churches, cathedrals, painting, sculpture and handicrafts. While sponsorship of artists and the commissioning of artwork is the best-known aspect of the patronage system, other disciplines also benefited from patronage, including those who studied natural philosophy (pre-modern science), musicians, writers, philosophers, alchemists, astrologers, and other scholars. Artists as diverse and important as Chrétien de Troyes, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, William Shakespeare, and Ben Jonson all sought and enjoyed the support of noble or ecclesiastical patrons.[2][3] Figures as late asMozart and Beethoven also participated in the system to some degree; it was only with the rise of bourgeois and capitalist social forms in the 19th century that European culture moved away from its patronage system to the more publicly-supported system of museums, theaters, mass audiences and mass consumption that is familiar in the contemporary world. This kind of system continues across many fields of the arts. Though the nature of the sponsors has changed—from churches to charitable foundations, and from aristocrats to plutocrats—the term patronage has a more neutral connotation than in politics. It may simply refer to direct support (often financial) of an artist, for example by grants. In the later part of the 20th century, the academic sub-discipline of patronage studies began to evolve, in recognition of the important and often neglected role that the phenomenon of patronage had played in the cultural life of previous centuries.. Think about the actual wealth of information that is covered in this forum!!!!!!! I remember that i researched for 3, yes 3 yrs!!!! before the FISD exsited. and the information was close to non existent!!!!! Once the FISD was up and running and i found it. in less then 5 hours of reading i had more information then the 3 yrs of research i did!!!! The way i see it we really should be paying full member ships to be able to have the access of information me have here!!!!!! We should be honored to be able to help this place run!!!!! We would be the Guardians of TK Knowledge!!!!! We too can be Mecenates " Guardship of the FISD" " Custodiae custodie FISD "
  19. This is the main and most important question...... Will they be less expensive the TK.Boots.
