  9. Some minor problems.

    first Off I put my 501st I’d number in my profile and it still says I’m just a member not a 501st member. Is this due to I’m not TD approved yet but I do have my TK/Tb. Second I still am not receiving any email notification when I get a response. Thanks for any light on these situations.
  10. New AM Armor too white ?

    ok So for future people who buy a AM kit do the following. Get some 1500 grit wet sand paper. Go crazy and remove the shine! This removes the high gloss to the armor and leave it scratch free. I haven’t started to figure if I’m doing fullers earth or the acrylic paint method yet. Removing the high gloss was the first to do so the armor will look “weathered “ and not clean/Old. I credit my brother Charles with this one. Cheers mate !!
  11. New AM Armor too white ?

    Ok so I’ve been told the new AM armor is too white for the sandy. You have to alter it somehow. Anyone have experience with dulling the white down any or was it not a problem.
  12. Grout colors to use.

    Thank you. But after going to homedepot and seeing what grout costs, and then seeing on trooperbay enough to do a set of armor in fullers earth is 8$ I think I’m gonna go with TB lol.
  13. Grout colors to use.

    So I see people using grout like the fullers earth for weathering. Does anyone have a good colors to use I get one like sand and a darker for crevasses but if I’m missing anything please lend me your knowledge. I’m not liking the acrylic paint at all for my armor is AM and it’s very bright. So I’m thinking the grout or earth way might be worth trying.

  15. BAck pack shoulder straps.

  20. How to: make a "Screen Accurate" Pack #5 filter

    I know this is Old and I’m hoping I can get a response, but what lids did you use ? I have flat black plastic. Although I much rather use the lids used here. I have the same 3” pvc pipe.
  21. Air Brush Weathering ?

    i figured it would look to uniform.
  22. New AM Armor too white ?

    so forgive me for asking but is the dirty wash where you smear the brownish paint like the burnt umber all over and remove like panda trooper did in his video ?
  23. New AM Armor too white ?

    good info guys thanks. since im shooting for a swat level and i see what they go through ill wait on the clear coat lol.
  24. New AM Armor too white ?

    did you do a base layer of a duller white before you did the weathering ? Or just the matte clear coat after the fact ?
  25. New AM Armor too white ?

    so i guess after i build the armor ill give it a shot of some off white spray paint. Then ill do my weathering like pandatrooper did in his 4 part video. Unless anyone who did a newer AM kit has a better idea, my comlink is open.
