Re: Looking for a TK advisor

I would suggest changing the color of the strips holding the drop boxes from white to black. I dont think the CRL gets that specific, but the white straps dont look right. Also I would recommend trimming the leg armor a little. The thigh armor and shin armor should be seperate and not touching each...

Re: Dr. Doom - FINISHED!!!

I have finished my Dr. Doom. All the pieces, except for the mask, were made by me including the softparts. Many of the pieces are patterned after late period medieval armor with a modern sci fi twist. The photos make it look more silver than it is in person. The armor has more of a automotive gloss ...

Re: ESB Fett build

Dallas,

Most of my Jango Fett parts started out as Boba pieces and I modified them. I have some spare parts for gauntlets, knees, and templates for armor that you can use.

Just let me know.

Chris

Re: Dr. Doom

Where do you get your WWII items? For uniforms and equipment, I use the following websites: www.atthefront.com www.hessenantique.com www.landser.com www.ima-usa.com Some stuff is made in China and is "farby" so the really cheap stuff is not always 100% accurate. This is one hobby where cutting corn...

Re: 14th Armored

Rich,

Yeah, that was me that called. :)

I have since then started my WW2 impression for the 38th Jagers. Ive been to two events so far and Im really enjoying it.

The authenticity levels are certainly high, but its well worth the effort.

Will you be at the tactical on Dec. 10th?
