Recommended Posts

 
 
Ive posted the following pictures on my build thread in the UKG and asked if they are ok for clearance
 
Lid off

I have noticed that when I wear the armour the shoulder bells and biceps come out of line, so I need to sort that out, I have asked the UKG if that would prevent clearance, if it does then no worries as I’ll have to sort it either way. also the right greave digs into my kneecap so I guess it needs some padding.
 
I hope you like them, please suggest any areas that need improving .... I do want to go for EIB and eventually Centurion.....
 
But before I do that I need to sort out a voice changer , I have TrooperTalk on my iPhone but it keeps draining the battery ... and I’ve not been using it but it’s doing something in the background....
 
Also I want to replace the current foam I have only lid with a better solution to hold the helmet in place ....
 
Oh and I want to get rid of that gap on the right hand ab/ kidney area .....
 
So still loads to do but hopefully I can do these tweaks as a TK and not a builder
 
As I say, your comments are gratefully appreciated

I had trouble closing my right side ab gap too. Yours doesnt look bad at all. On mine i put two elastic straps and snap between the kidney and the ab to pull them tighter. I have one at the top and one at the bottom of the kidney piece. Not pretty but it does the job.

Thanks Frank, I did the same as you as per your build.... perhaps the elastic needs to be a bit tighter or I’ve been eating too many pies lately lol. :)

Just waiting for the UKG to give me the ok with the pre clearance pics then I can apply for clearance :)

Well I’ve submitted my armour for clearance with the UKG, so hopefully all will go well.....

Today I’ve been to the bike show at the NEC in Birmingham...... ok what’s that got to do with TKs I hear you ask..... well comic com was also on so I spent some time there too :)

it was great to meet guys n gals from the UKG .... although I did feel out of my depth.... the people I talked too were so nice, helpful and knowledgable and the TKs knew how to talk to the public.... I was awe struck.... really impressed with the professional way everyone conducted themselves.... yes awe struck and me thinking can I do that’?.... mind you a year ago I didn’t think I could build the armour....

Anyway some pics

The RS stand

9d7ad65562af525872cd5ca15a57fddc.jpg

Spent some time talking to the TKs and they all recommended me getting a voice changer for trooping.... actually it was good to talk to them .... it’s much better to hear it from the horses (or should that be TK) mouth .... as they say.... oh and their voice changers were amazing :)

Hope you enjoy the pics

A big thanks to all of you

Hi Stephen,

 

quick question, did you reinforce the shoulder strap covers? Before glueing them into place.

Hi Matt,

No unfortunately I didn’t, been thinking of taking them off and doing it, but they are stuck very hard so may leave it :)

WOW, huge congratulations are in order to you!!!  What a journey, right?  You look amazing!  Now get out there and make some kids happy, Trooper! :D  (and bonus points if you can get pics of you riding your motorcycle in kit...)

Thanks Christine, it was your build thread that made me think, perhaps I can do this, and I’m so glad I tried.... mine you both you and Frank and the guys on the UKG gave me so many tips on how to do things, and encouragement when I hit the inevitable brick walls, I really couldn’t have done it without you all.... thanks

Haha... riding without a crash helmet on is illegal over here, might try it in the garden when it’s warmer :)

In the mean time.... my impression of a biker scout..... :) I don’t think it will get clearance

Not much cooler than a TK on a motorcycle.

it was reading Christines thread that gave me the confidence to say "yeah, have a go at building it"

 

For the life of me, do you think I can find a link to Christine's build in here.
