    Even though I am a 501st member, I can't enter my 4 digit number. It won't let me. Anyone know why?

  8. Installing sniper knee - opinions

    Hi Paul, I just back filled mine with a plate so that I could mount it to the shin. When you glue yours, do you glue plastic shims or something under the knee so that the glue has something to grip to?
  9. TD paint for HIPS armor?

    Check my build thread, I have the exact same armor. http://forum.mepd.net/?showtopic=6775 I just buffed the helmet to add a little sheen and did some other parts on the high spots, but after that I just went straight to weathering.
  10. RT-MOD TK to TD!

    Do it right, get a new abdomen. It will be worth it. Plus you need the 3 button strip anyways. You also need to remove the shoulder straps without damaging the chest, as well as removing the TK knee plate.
  11. I was having a discussion with a friend who wants to build a TD and he was researching sniper knees. On my build I made an insert "box" that completely filled the backside of the knee to make it look solid instead of hollow. Do people prefer the hollow look and install it with a few shims of plastic? Or do you like the solid look? Screen accurate wise, I believe it was hollow. Thoughts?
  12. weathering HIPS trooper armor

    I polished mine slightly but just weathered it, no painting. You can see my hips armor in my tutorials.
