Re: Ok, so I made a new toy...

Thanks all. It was fun to build. Im going to make another one but its going to be smaller I think. This one doesent weigh to much. Maybe 15lbs for the gun and 8 to 10 for the back back. This one had 8 24inch barrels with a width of 6inch. The next one will have 6 20inch barrel and a width of 4 inch...

Re: Next Armor Party

I believe a sander...or whatever could be used to seperate and trim the straps out of the mold, as well as whatever could be used to take out the current buttons....

Re: Next Armor Party

Replacing the ab buttons, refiting the chest and upper back piece (as well as replacing the shoulder straps that are currently on them) and putting the holster onto the belt. I might wait to do this at the next armor party, but I would like to replace the current strap system used for the shoulder ...

Chest piece refitting

I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me refit the chest piece and back piece on my TK armor so it would overall sit and be up to standards than it is now (IIRC it sits too low and covers some of the Ab buttons) or should I just wait for the next Armor Party in the Detroit Area to get that...

Re: How is this for tube stripe placement?

in Amerca...we don't talk like that :twisted: don't know what type of history you're talking about....but I'll take that into account.. For now....I'll settle on taking mini-TK-1339 (those little stormtrooper action figures) along for the ride http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2052/2188737492_8318afde7...

Re: How is this for tube stripe placement?

Having done both the "shipping armor" (to Phoenix, AZ) and the "checked luggage" (Pasadena, CA) routes, you need to consider a couple of things. Shipping will make traveling easier, but it's going to cost quite a bit. For my Phoenix trip, it was about $30 one way to my friend's house (and about tha...

How is this for tube stripe placement?

I couldn't find any particular video on how to replace the tube stripes... I tried my best at placing them....keep note that chances are I will replace them again, and redo the entire area again next time there's an armor party considering the fact that using white out is generally not the best idea...

Re: Christmas Break help

*chuckles* yeah yeah, I see what you mean. if time's the biggest issue we have (even if you due have time off on Thursday) what we can do is just get the holster onto the armor, fix the helmet up (which would take less than 15 min), and just add straps to the shoulder bells so they stop moving as much
