Thank you, I look forward to meeting all of you guys in person.

I took your advice and went and started a thread over there Rob. I should have done it awhile ago though, lol.

LOL.. Kurt's is more shinereyyy,.. (Whatever) than yours... you polish that thing with a chocolate bar or something?  :mrgreen:

Actually, I'd get me a set of that stuff if I could get a kit that had a TE/AP style bucket, and not the FX bucket.

You can!!  I heard there was someone doing an AP/RT type bucket.  Could you even get your noggin in a TE2?  :lol:  The funny thing about Kurt's shiny armor is that his is from there SUPER glossy new abs when mine is from the NOT so glossy old abs.   :oops:  Dave and I were talking about what we should do besides have Kurt not stand next to us.  :mrgreen:

Hey man, I think you look great. It takes quite a bit of skill to attempt such a thing and I think you got a good costume there. I look forward to seeing you around. :)

I'm eventually going to take some pictures with my voice changer vader helmet on because I hear a lot of shadow guys get called darth vader, lol.

Thanks for the compliment really means a lot. Like I said over at the detachment threads I like getting complimented because then I know I didn't screw my first kit up that bad, lol.

Man thats a sick looking minigun, when I was leaning towards arc trooper I was planning on trying to build one for that. I heard someone put a drill motor in theirs to spin the barrel, I was hoping to try and attempt that.

LOL... I think someone is "over compensating" for something ..... just weeeee bit!!  :mrgreen:


Seriously, that is AWESOME!!  Does the barrel rotate and how heavy is that?  Would you like to borrow a black pauldron for the parade?

I built the minigun to be light weight. It did spin for about 15 minutes, until I burned the motor out. I am not good with figuring out power issues. I guess it was too much of a load for the toy truck motor I used. I actually thought about a  drill motor, but couldn't figure out the power issue. I was thinking light weight and something that could run for hours if needed. If anybody knows about such things, I am all ears! It actually looks better now that I added more hoses and things....

Rob lent me some pauldrons to check out. A grey one and a black one. The black one is thicker. I still haven't decided which one to buy.
