    Mike, there is no Try, you WILL finish that costume, if we have to have you drag it all over to one of our places, and help you do it!

    And if you lose "motivation" there are about 7 guys and a girl that will "find new ways to motivate you"!

    Yikes! That sounds reeeeeally bad..


    Mike, there is no Try, you WILL finish that costume

    Of course I will. No two ways about it.

    Looking good Gary.



    I can't believe I spent what I did on this friggin' chest box. What a piece of crap. The resin isn't even cut properly!

    Does it have to be sanded? Alot of armorers send them out unfinished, just to get it out.

    It's like the molds weren't even the right size. If I knew the kit was gonna be like this I never would've ordered it. [link=http://www.richiesarmor.com/tie_box3.htm]This is not the kit I received!![/link]

    Un-friggin-believable. What a waste of my money.


    EDIT: I've made up my mind. I'm returning it. The mail he sent me said I can return unaltered within 30 days so I'm doing it. I'd rather spent more money and wait a little longer on a GOOD looking set of armor than on crap quick.

    Damn Mike- sorry to hear about the issue.

    Have any other leads? There was someone on the NJO boards saying something about chest boxes

    I found a great chest box AND the guy is gonna add in the voice amplifier. I found out today that his Radio Shack does sell them still and he's gonna pick one up for me. It's about time I start getting some good news.

    Ha! I too have my first piece on its way now! Okay, so its a small piece, but a first piece none the less. I ordered my silver square metal belt buckle for my Grand Admiral costume and I'm in talks with someone to make my rank insignia. Whoo hoo! Small steps baby!

    I got my patches today and as a bonus for having to wait so long, the dude sent me a third, cool-looking 'Imperial Academy' patch. It's all coming together now!

    You go Moby!! A start is a start!!!

    And Frig, An academy cadet, I think it's fitting for you!!!

    Ok, confirmed the construction of the final Jumpsuit today. It will be identical to my Orange one. only with Velcro patches on the shoulders so I can switch out the Imp Cogs for the NER patch and whatever else I feel like putting there.

    I'll pick up the Black Flightsuit either next week, or the week after. So, the phase 1 costume will be done then. (with minor mods done to that one)

    I'm trying to think of a use for the Flightsuit after I get the final Jumpsuit done. Maybe a Fell type Suit, with the Red stripes.
