  1. Chest plate query

    Another 501st oddity I would have to disagree with but I don't make the rules up. I find it really strange that rivets are required on the left hand side of the abdomen and kidney because they are part of the original strapping, yet it's okay to ignore all the screws in the torso that are also part of the original strapping. Either go original or go snaps.
  2. Chest plate query

    I don't know what the rules are for TD levels but the screws are not required for TK Centurion. The screws are part of the original strapping system so in my opinion, if they are required for the chest plate then they should be all over the torso to match.

    Here are a couple of photos from behind the scenes of the Special Edition that might be of interest to you guys.
  4. kidney plate notches

    If your kidney plate doesn't protrude past your butt plate, don't cut the notch out. The idea of the notch that is moulded into the original armour is so it lines up with your butt plate. Cutting the notch into a kidney plate that is the length size as your butt plate just looks odd.
  5. Special Edition TD CRL discussion topic

    I have a close up photo of the boots used and they were the original ANH 'Stuart' boots with black soles. The photo is on my old hard drive, unfortunately, and I have no idea where it is at the moment. Also, I don't think the armour used was original ROTJ. I would guess they were suits made after ROTJ with the flexible shoulder straps riveted on. The main reason I don't think they are ROTJ (but definitely ROTJ based tour suits) is one of the left thighs has the distinctive ANH shape = something I have never seen on any ROTJ based armour. Look at the guy 2nd from left. Regarding the ab buttons, it looks as though just the middle buttons were painted.

    How can that be possible? None of the ANH armour was used in the making of the SE. I would love to see proof of this if you have it?
  7. Special Edition TD CRL discussion topic

    That's true, but they are regular ANH troopers whichever way you look at it. Everyone knows that when you refer to a Special Edition Sandtrooper, you mean the newly added troopers that wear ROTJ armour. There should be no discussion about using regular ANH armour in my opinion.
  8. Special Edition TD CRL discussion topic

    Special Edition troopers wear ROTJ armour. If you are replicating this version of trooper then you should wear ROTJ armour. It's pretty simple really. There is no point going SE otherwise, just stay ANH.

    If you guys need ROTJ armour to make the SE troopers, just let me know
  10. Diamond knee plate source?

    Hi Roger, I pop in from time to time. I like to see what my sandy brothers are up to
  11. Diamond knee plate source?

    I have more accurate knee plates available for less.
  12. Rogue One Stormtrooper Backpack Parts Identification

    I would say the main top flap is simply pulled over the pocket not cut off. If the top half of the pack is empty the flap will pull down. I have one of these packs and know it can be done.
  13. Original strapping screws question

    You need three longer brackets for the chest to overlap the abdomen. I personally would get the proper brackets from Mr. No Stripes or fabricate your own.

    Guys, I am having issues with my Facebook account again so please use the forums or my email - troopermaster421@gmail.com if you want to get in touch about anything. Thanks, Paul.
  15. Original strapping screws question

    Put the screws through the face of the armour if you do not have any or little return edge to fix the brackets to. This is very common on the movie suits.
