  1. Sorry about that! I have now made the link blue AND Thank you so much for the follows and likes!
  2. Hey everybody... I had to make a new trooperbay facebook page as I have somehow deleted myself as admin from my first trooperbay page...lol. Apparently this is not easy to undo... Anyway.. if you would please like and follow my new page I would be grateful! My new page is https://www.facebook.com/Trooperbayshop/ Thanks!
  3. Wow, its still bouncing around I made the template so you could just print it out at 100 percent and it would be correct scale. You may need to shingle pages to make it work.
  4. The galaxy's a little quieter nowThe planets colors lost their hueThe porg's are singing softlyAnd the troops are missing youEach time we see a shooting starOr a tie fighter soaring byWe’ll think of you in honorand raise our buckets to the sky....
  5. You guys should try my ARMOR WHITE. Works great to restore the white your armor and can be re applied as needed with no harm to the armor or paint.
  6. No, I am actually not saying that at all. All plastic will yellow and nothing can stop it. You can restore the white with ArmorWhite, but its not permanent. From time to time you will have to re apply the solution to keep your old armor white. Look at the armor in the Lucasfilm archives. Its all yellow. Look at your old computer from back in the day... its yellow. That's why all computers are BLACK now, lol... All ABS plastic turns yellow over time. Does not matter if its in the sun or not, it will still yellow. The sun and heat of any kind will quicken the yellowing however. Sooooo if you troop alot then your armor will turn yellow faster. Warm parts of your body will also cause the armor to turn yellow. A UV additive can be added to the plastic to fight off yellowing, but it doubles the cost pf the plastic. So the armor prices would be much higher as a result. PVC or Kydex would be a better plastic for armor. Kydex is what Lucasfilm used for the SE armor. Its still white. Kydex pricing is insane however... PVC is not glossy nor is Kydex... The struggle continues.....
  7. All plastic will yellow. Basically you have to store it in a cool place, away from light and any source of heat. I wonder what type of bag? Maybe thats it? Could also be the batch of plastic. Armorwhite usually does the trick. Paint it on and let the armor set out in the sun for the day... thats it...Rinse it off and your done. Something else I just thought of.... If you are out trooping then the armor is exposed to the UV's and will yellow faster than a helmet that is just stored at home away from light and heat.
  8. I hate the hooks. If you are by yourself its a hassle to take the shins off.
