  1. Please help! Anychance someone who saved these pictures originally can repost them for me please? I seem to of lost the pictures I saved back then.<br><br> Thank you so much
  2. i have a TM kit brand new in the box minus helmet if your interested. I could pair it with one of my other helmets if you want a complete kit... I'm in Australia too
  3. It's still fixable.. Just trim the excess off from the ends of the belt, then re-do the corners. It would be fine. Heck it could be worse! I just assembled my entire belt (riveted holster, plastic belt, drop boxes) and added original Newey England snaps to it... only to find out the "original sized" RS canvas belt I bought is 3" too SHORT!! The velcro won't even overlap when the ab, and kidney are lined up back to back. Really pinged off about this...
  4. Judging from this picture I wouldn't say you've made the thighs too thin. Even if the strips are only 20mm (IIRC I believe the RS thighs' as being 20-22mm strips on the left, and 23-24mm on the right). You actually have quite a bit extra at the back of the thighs than what Siman's original suit has. You can tell by the way the pieces are curved before joining together. I looked at the pictures provided by RS in their thigh build over, and over, when it came time to do mine. As the guys had said, the thighs are quite thin on the original.
  5. Hi Wayne, I picked up the red primer for the HDPE/PP helmets today. I haven't had a chance to take a pic and upload it, but the brand is "white knight". Look for "Rust Guard primer - Red Oxide" at mitre 10, or bunnings. It's quite a common Aussie brand paint so almost everywhere should stock it. It was fairly cheap too, only $13 which was good. I thought I remembered it being more expensive. Good to be wrong.
  6. That looks A LOT better. One thing that really gets me is the brow trim on the RS props helmets. Is that the actual trim size and shape? I mean it looks too big and bulky when comparing it to originals.
  7. I had a scout about for the correct red primer a couple of weeks back. It can be bought from your local mitre 10. I think its pretty expensive at $18 -$20 for a rattle can. But it is the correct stuff. If you're not quite sure what to look for, I can get you a picture when I get a chance to pick some up. As for the white, "appliance white" is a good choice if you want that off-white tint to it. It'll probly match your armour too.
  8. I'd cut off the nub from the inside. Drilling a rivet out of plastic is risky. It's quite easy to melt a rivet sized hole, due to the friction.
  9. Thats fantastic mate. Now just put a big crack in that right tube on your helmet and you are good to go!
  10. It is listed on their site as being 45mm. Well as far as what's supplied with their strapping kit anyhow.
  11. As I said on FB - bloody awesome! I'm truely thankful for the effort you guys put into this
  12. Great build by the way! Looking forward to seeing your Green helmet when you get it in hand
  13. Apologies. I was under the impression the question was referring to what parts were missing as far as a true 'complete' stormtrooper goes. By that I mean 'as made for the film'. Some of the actual formed pieces on Si's suit are doubles of the same part. IE the suit has two right arms. NOT a left and right as was made for the film. Furthermore the lower legs are both identical. Both are made from 2 left outter shin sections, and two right outter sections. The suit is cobled together to make what you may call a 'complete' stormtrooper (Heck they were seen on screen like this, all mashed together probably..). But for me, I'm different when it comes to that conclusion. Siman's suit has a TD. I don't know whether or not they cast it since its all glued together. I've not really looked hard at the one that came with my kit. It does look nice however. I thought it was pretty common knowledge that the suit had doubled up parts..? It's been mentioned in numerous threads regarding the RS suit.
