    Thanks again Thomas. 1. Apologies, I mistyped the colour reference to the shoulder pouch - it is in fact black canvas as shown in the posted photos. I have managed to source a small black leather ammo pouch (see link below) which appears equivalent to the small Spanish pouch - before I commit to buy it, can you confirm if this would be acceptable please? 2. I am on it, will revert asap. 3. Ditto. 4. Noted. Cheers, Grant. https://www.flickr.com/photos/163341804@N08/32960660318/in/dateposted-public/

    Hi! My name is Caleb. I'm not an approved 501st member yet, but I'm planning on doing a ANH Stunt TK and Heavy weapons trooper in the future. I wanted to join this forum because there is more info on heavy weapons, pauldons, packs, and pouches here. Thanks!

    In addition to what was said above, I recommend you use devcon plastic weld to affix the plastic "splint" behind the crack. You want to chemically bond the splint for strength and gorilla glue or superglue won't do that.

    Some small side notes if anyone is interested. I would love to be the CRL model for the Crystal Patrol Trooper as well. I have the pack and orange pauldron ready, I just really want to finish up this new helmet mold first to have for the photos.

    Hi all! After obsessing overreference photos and comparing my costume I came to two conclusions. One, my Black series helmet makes me look like a bobblehead. And two, it is missing some of the details from the scene used helmets. I know jimmiroquai makes a helmet as well but from what i can tell, it looks like a recast of the Black Series with some small differences. Which doesn't help my size problem. So about seven months ago I decided to start working on my own helmet sculpt. Unfortunately life got in the way more than once and I have had to start and stop this thing several times. Within the last month I have made some good progress and I thought I'd share. Please remember this is still a work in progress and there are still many areas that need to be finalized, so don't look to hard at the vocoder its just temporary. I know I need to clean up the eyes and frown, but I'm very happy with the proportions. And that last photo is to give you an idea of the size difference compared to my ATA helmet. Today I ordered everything I need to make a mold and start casting. I hope to have a prototype in a month. That may be wishful thinking, we shall see. So, what do you guys think? Please be soft with me, I have a hard time with criticism. I normally don't post unfinished projects.

    Hi Grant, 1. These is an example for the pouches, you can use for the hip: If your shoulderpouch is brown, please dye it black and show it. 2: Please paint the seed trays, the two bottles and the giostyle bottle (under the radio) greyblue. 3: please post your Action-Foto timley. It should not delay approval, if you don´t post it - but do it timely. And: without Holster 4: Yes, you are right. But better is a pic with armor and all changes. Thanks Thomas

    *IN PROGRESS* TD-27090 Requesting Deployment

    Thanks @bigwamfor the prompt follow-up and inspection. I have four quick points for clarification please: 1. Replacement pouch - I plan on buying the (below) black leather MP-40 three magazine ammo pouch to replace the belt-mounted ammo pouch - before I commit to buying this, please confirm if this colour/style is acceptable? I take it then that the brown shoulder-mounted canvas pouch is acceptable and can remain in place? Please confirm if this is the case; 2. Painting parts of the survival pack: understood - the two seed trays and the two bottles are to be re-painted blue/grey. Please confirm if the blue funnel which sits directly below the radio (see my pack pic) also needs the blue portion to be blue/grey as well? 3. Action pic - yes, noted. I will upload a different (and far more interesting) action photo shortly - this I expect should not delay approval of the kit in the meantime - please confirm; 4. Re-submit pics: can I simply re-post the photos of just the replacement parts for approval/inspection? In this case, the pouch will be slipped on the belt and photographed flat on the floor and I will provide a fresh picture of the complete backpack once re-painted. By way of heads-up, as much as I would like these items changed, sourcing the items from abroad will take some time as I live in the Middle East, but I will respond as soon as the work is done. Looking forward to your replies so I can ordering. Thanks, Grant.

    Repair advice

    That's a bummer - but, you can fix that. Don't go buying new parts yet. You will need to remove the screw (of course), glue a piece of scrap plastic to the backside (re-drill hole for screw), and then use ABS paste to fill in the gap on the front. The area with the ABS paste will need to be sanded and re-weathered. Some people will actually use a bit of thin cloth with glue or resin before gluing on the scrap piece of plastic to reinforce the cracked area - you only really need this if you have tears propagating out from the broken area. If you have any questions on any of the above, let me know. There are tutorials out there for this sort of patch work. Good luck.

    Repair advice

    So I've had my first major wear damage to my armor. It's worse than a crack unfortunately. It occurred on the lip under my top breast plate (between top and bottom front torso pieces). Anyone have any suggestions on how to address this? Can it be addressed? Do I instead need a replacement piece?

    Good morning Gentlemen (or afternoon, evening depending on which planet you're deployed on...^^) Below are the pictures of my Hasbro E11 Upgrade with Doppydoo Kit. This complete my application and should allow you to approve my PO deployment request. RAW HASBRO (went with this one cause no budget right now for a better option and wanted to keep the "pew pew" for the kids) I upgraded using the Doopy's kit Added several layers of Matte Black paint to obtain this Silver painted the ejection port [/url] And finally weathered all using same mix than on, the armor FINAL RESULT Once again thanks for all the time you spend on my review.
