    Weathered my Inland Empire Armory T-21

    Ok...it was driving me crazy since you all graciously pointed out the barrel end! Fixed and added the internal “cooling fins” (Provided by Inland Empire Armory[emoji6]) and while I was at it, I made a butt-plate and engraved my TD ID on it too! Again, thanks for pointing that out!

    25AUG18: San Diego Festival of Books. Best part of the day was when a young girl asked to re-take a selfie with me...”Mr. Stormtrooper, could I take another picture with you? I forgot to smile in the first one!” Too cute [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ah...I see what you mean with the barrel end...thanks for the catch; that won’t effect PO status?
  6. Sharing pictures of my before and after T-21 weathering...Layers of Folk Art Metallic Gunmetal, Silver followed by washes of Liquatex Burnt Umber and Mars Black. I also rounded out the stock and added some mods based off real Lewis Gun pictures... Before... After... I think it matches my “worn” look very well.

    Comic Con 2018 various: I had a blast and just wanted to share some of my “other” adventures with you all! I was featured in several local news cast, one from England (Darth Maul from England interview) found myself in a couple of videos, and was pictured in a couple of “best cosplay” articles! https://www.nbclosangeles.com/entertainment/entertainment-news/The-Costumes-of-San-Diego-Comic-Con-International-2018-488668741.html https://www.theverge.com/2018/7/23/17600864/comic-con-sdcc-2018-activations-purge-good-place And must have had my picture taken 1000’s of times...it literally took me 2 hours to make it back to my hotel on Saturday! I’m now a Getty stock image! Best story I have from all the Con is this message sent to our Garrison command staff... All in all I really hoped that I was able to bring a smile to all those Star Wars fans and that I also represented the 501st and MEPD well! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Comic Con cont... 21Jul18 Hallmark booth: 501st Annual droid hunt... I had close to 40 “droids” stuffed into both my forearms! When I went to turn them in I had to have one of my teammates help take them out! I looked like a ticket vending machine! Saturday 21Jul18: Kotobukiya Was tired so I caught some Zzzz’s...I am active duty mil so I’m used to wearing body armor and with my fans going...I leaned up against the backdrop and struck a pose and figured that if someone wanted a picture they would ask or just take it anyway LOL Saturday 21Jul18: Gentle Giant again...

    Comic Con cont... Friday 20JUL18 Local San Diego Fox Affiliate Morning Show... Friday 20JUL18 cont... Gentle Giant So people are starting to ask “Are you Mark Hamill?” Couldn’t figure out why until my Garrison mates showed me this: Apparently a picture (this picture below) was taken and wound up on NBC’s national news feed for ALL their Comic Con coverage!

    Comic Con 2018...where to begin: Hallmark booth Thursday 19JUL18 Best part of that day was as follows: So, I am at the Hallmark booth and this lady comes up to me and is like "I need you to come with me right now!" Who are you I ask? "I am with Disney!" OK, where am I going? "We are doing a book signing, and you are a Stormtrooper and you look cool, so let's go!" Of course you dont say No to the people who own the rights to the Star Wars Franchise! Wind up participating in Rae Carson's book signing of her new book "Most Wanted"! She even signed a copy for me! I am on Disney's list now! [emoji50] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Well...I’ve had a lot of positive reaction to the look, but I get what you’re saying [emoji848] as it was my first time I kinda wound up with a more stylized, sharper dirty look, but as I’ve read on here weathering is sorta personal and it’s grown on me...Would this effect my ability to “Deploy” once I get a backpack?

    Yeah...I trimmed my brow before I riveted it together. I don’t recall the sides of the cap-n-back flaring out that much though...
