Finally ordered my first set of armor! RS ANH-S in ABS


Recommended Posts

I finally made the decision and put in my order for a set of RS armor! I am super excited and can't wait for it all to arrive.

 

While it is daunting and already a bit overwhelming, I would like to shoot for centurion right off the bat. This is my first time doing anything like this and will need to order pretty much everything tools wise. I have already had so much help in another thread when I was trying to decide which armor to get and am very thankful. I have a link to a post from justjoseph63 that shows all the tools I will need and am going to start ordering pretty much everything on that list. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/31404-supply-list-for-your-ot-tk-build/

 

I did order the RS strap pack and am wondering if anyone knows if that comes with the rivets (is that the right word?) needed to reach centurion or if I need to look at ordering others from that list? I had seen a picture of a strap pack but think it may have changed a bit since.

 

Also wondering if anyone can recommend a good build thread, or couple, to follow of someone with RS that went centurion from the start. I saw Diana's RS build pinned and have looked through that and it seems to be very good. 

 

I am going to order by boots from Imperial Boots and will order my undersuit probably from someone like underamrour that has something that could help with heat.

 

Neck seal, Gloves, Holster, and canvas belt are all coming from RS also.

 

I do need to get an E-11 still. I see that certain makers are no longer in production and am looking to probably just get a pre-built blaster that will pass centurion. I would like one that I don't mind giving to someone and not having to worry they can break it.

 

Hopefully that BBB comes soon and I can make my official build thread! Any other tips are greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Matthew

Great news, looking forward to seeing your BBB photos soon.

 

Here is a break down of the RS strapping pack, which may be of help:

Thank you that is helpful. I think you had sent this to me before, which I watched, but didn't quite understand it all then.  I think I will look at going with snap strapping instead of the original way as it seems to be more sturdy and better for the armor.

Congrats Matt!  I picked up RS' PVC version.  Don't make my mistake in just following RS tuts alone, watch Ritchie, watch Cableguy, there is a wealth of information and helpful troopers here.  Yes the strap pack comes with all your rivets, all metal parts, buttons, snaps.  Yep - all there.  Rob's belt cutting nearly screwed my build as it didn't follow the CRL with the precise 45 degree cuts.

Thanks so much for the input! I am planing on finding a few builds here and mainly following them, so thanks for the additional people to check out. I think I am going to alter my snapping and go the double snap route so am ordering the necessary supplies for that, but good to know they come with everything just in case.

Congratulations Matt, very nice purchase. Don't stress too much with your build, it wont take long and you will be very confident in all aspects of it.

The double snap strapping has worked exceptionally well for many members here including myself, another good choice.

Looking forward to your BBB day and subsequent build thread.
