Buchanen Armor Party 01/26/14

Post by Harp42770 » Fri Nov 29, 2013 10:56 am

Hello Everyone!
I would normally post this in the Off-Duty Events, but apparently as a visiting member I can't post there. So! I am going to recently come into possession of a new set of TD armor (Thanks Terrel!) that I need to work on. I also need to finish off my IG set. In the interest of getting my butt into gear and also maybe meeting some of you, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in having an armor party either sometime in December or in January?

I know a lot of the troops here in Michigan are on Saturdays, So I figured this could be a Sunday event. As for where, I honestly don't care! If it means meeting more of you and having a nice garage/workshop/heated space to work in, I am perfectly willing to drive to Grand Rapids/Lansing/Detroit/wherever! :thumbs:

So, any interest?

Hi, I have a 1000 square foot heated shop with a restroom, two tv's with surround sound, great lighting, and lots of cool tools. Course I do believe I live the farthest away from most folks. Buchanan Michigan just across the border from South Bend Indiana. More than willing to host a build party! :D Curt

Currently we are building the ANH NE (Nostalgic Empire) armor. Very nice set. All the arms and legs or done, Torso is trimmed and doing straps and snaps.

ABS. Lots so room to fit a big guy. Beautiful shine right out the box. Strong, thick extreme detail with crisp lines. Very well done.

Welp, January and a New Year are now upon us! Is there anyone else who would be interested in a armor party one of these Sundays? Maybe on the 19th or the 26th?

Thanks to all that came. Great time and a lot of work was accomplished. Great to have TK's, Vaders, Gunners, Sand's along with Batman, Dredd and Ghostbusters too! Had the Northern Darkness and the Midwest Garrison represented as well. Looking forward to the 26th for another great time.
