Pill holes

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give any tips about if they are cutting out the pill holes in the chest, biceps, and shin?  Or are you sticking with the decals?

 

And if you are cutting, what is your method?

We did not cut ours. If the decals didn't work, more than likely we would have painted and still not cut them out. There are a few items (like those) that we are waiting to see the movie to have a better understanding before making "real consequence" choices. If we choose to cut, using a dremmel bit that is similar to what's used to cut out the "teeth" of the OT TK helmet should do nicely, in theory. Would be better to hear from those that made the cuts about the dremmel bit, and to hear if there was any concern about any stability/fragility of the piece after the cuts.

For accuracy, cut the pill holes in the chest, the ankle hole in the calves/shins, the pill holes in the biceps. Everything else gets decals.

Thanks.  On a similar note, you noted for accuracy to also cut the chest vent.  How far along the detail is supposed to be cut out of the chest vent?  Just along the bottom, or all the way up the "U" in the vent?

I know you probably mentioned that on your accuracy thread but thanks again for the clarification Brian
