  1. Welcome to the NER Matt! I know we've been talking the last few days but wanted to pop over here as well We have a bunch of guys that use the icomm, akers and all the other electronics and mike set ups so once you are out trooping you can probably see a couple of different sets up as they all do it differently hahaha! We have some pretty technical guys too, who work out great systems for fans and those usb battery packs in their helmets - making it all fit and still work great. Dave Clampffer is one of them, and like me he's right down the road in Neptune (and often at my house making armor and mods lol). You'll have to join the crew!
  2. Sorry I just saw this, for some reason I wasn't getting notifications when things were posted here and I've been busy this summer catching up on a lot of things! I had an initial supply list in the beginning, if you still need something specific let me know I'll try and put it together
  3. Hey guys, We have a new member who unfortunately used ebay to source out a Scout bucket. To me it looks like some kind of recast Rubies, but I see he has other stuff - including TK armor - for sale, so I'm seeing if anyone here knows anything about it. My advice was to simply return it as he has in the listing a 14 day money back guarantee, but at the same time want to get informed so I can help steer away anyone else. You guys seen this stuff before? https://www.ebay.com/sch/buus783/m.html?item=253295230536&ul_noapp=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 Thanks in advance!!

  5. Definitely many ways to make a TK and a lot of the time it also depends on the kit and/or sizing of the person but thanks, I have been using this method for a while now and have helped a bunch of guys in the NER finish their TKs
  6. Who did you hear from? Some of our members have been trying to reach them at the troopergear@gmail.com address with no response. I can't find it but I thought someone had mentioned something about them being tied to "tkarmor" (not the tkarmour with a "u")... hotmail address or something? Anyone with insight please share, thanks!!
  7. Great job man, glad to see it finished and ready for submission!!!
  8. This is a good idea, along with some tape to even hold it down some (that's what I've been doing). Another big factor in keeping them from splitting is taking them on and off carefully. Slide them on like a sock, slow and careful so there is very minimal push out, and take them off by separating the top first, then sort of puling them up and out as opposed to pulling them completely apart to remove your leg. If that makes sense
  9. That's it man, the chest / back at the shoulders looks great now
  10. If you check out my build thread I detail how I did my belt buttons on the first page, post #8 which is about a third of the way down the screen I think the notched belt serves a purpose in the level scheme but can't think of it off the top of my head. Like if you are doing Stunt vs Hero or ESB vs ANH/Jedi or something, lol, I'll see if I can remember and edit it in if I find it.
  11. Are those the only three pieces you got that look like that? If so it's possible you got two of the "un-notched" belt and no thigh ammo pack. Although they are very similar the thigh ammo is noticeably smaller. Here's a shot of our new guys kit I'm helping him with: Thigh ammo is on left (smallest one), two belts on middle and right. He gives you options on belts, if you do the belt with the recessed "notches" (my photo the one on far right) then you can use the detail parts that fit inside and have raised buttons (like Shea above my post). If you use the non-recessed belt (my photo middle one) then you can use the non-raised buttons - they come in a strip of three attached, you simply measure and cut them out. Check out this page on my build album (pg 22) http://s199.photobucket.com/user/bro117/library/TK%20Armor%20Build/Bro%20AM%202%200?sort=3&page=22
  12. If you can leave the return edge it's great because it makes the armor look thicker and cooler, lol, but most of us need to trim it because we're shorter then the armor is made for Obviously you can't trim the bottom because of the details so you have to end up trimming the top. That's fine and won't affect your approval. I usually end up cutting off most of the top and return edge on these builds. One thing you can do, is try to leave a little return edge on the outside bottom of each leg, like taper it down from the top and under (between the legs) so it's smaller but from the outside still maintains some of the illusion I'm not great with photo editing but sort of like this: You could cut off the red areas but possibly leave the stuff on the left in the photo, so when you are wearing it that is the part that sort of sticks out and will give an illusion it is thick
  13. For the ab plate you should be able to just trim it down a little more until you are about flush with the bump on the armor itself. Even after the initial cut on the buttom plate you can mark it down some more on each side. Here was a shot of mine, it looks like it's overhanging a little but it's basically flush: I'm actually helping another new member make his AM 2.0 TK right now, I'll be doing some work on it over the weekend. I'll get some photos of the plate in raw form, trimmed and how we fit it for you
  14. Awesome, I'll check for your registration and activate you ASAP
