PostSubject: My first suit   Sun Feb 20, 2011 11:32 pm

Here's the latest pics I have of me in my TM, that I got in June I think, and finished by late September. I still mod it and recently made the biceps smaller to fit me better, and fixed a thing with the cover strips on my thighs going all the way down and not stopping before the last inch. Even after these pictures were taken (last week I think) I adjusted the shoulder straps the raise the back piece a little to avoid the small overlap with the kidney.

Anyways, here's the pics!






And some just for fun!

Funny story about the girl that kisses me in the photo. I have no idea who she is. She came up to us (we were 2 TKs, me and the other in an FX + AP lid) and had here photo takes with us. Then right after, I guess she had a change of heart, she came running back and literally threw herself into my arms and kissed me before running back to her friends. Smile

wonderful stuff ,the girl and the X picture is a keeper for the scap-book mate.

Now down to business,The suit looks great but you are suffering from something we see a lot of ! The long necked trooper or the I have way to much padding in my lid trooper.All TM lids should have no more than 1/4 inch on your crown.This will stop the look were you are trying to see through the helmet lenses and having to tilt the lid forward.



Less crown padding = A1 trooper.

Thanks Peter for noticing!

The quoted picture is older than the top 4 pics, so hopefully I don't suffer from this anymore. Now, if I have any top padding at all I have a 1cm piece of cell plastic which is removable. I've yet to take any pics without any padding inside, but I'll try to get that done by the scifi-fair I'm going to next weekend.

I have found the best way to make sure the back and chest sit properly is to make the join between the chest and abdomen and the back and kidney first and then trim/adjust the neck/shoulders area.
In my opinion, for a proper ANH look it is absolutely essential to have the back and kidney joined and zero ovelap. Likewise, the chest should be connected nice and high on the abdomen with minimum overlap. If the chest piece chokes you, just cut the neck openign deeper. It looks a lot better than wearing the chest too low.
I really don't like to see abdomen/kidney armour held up with braces and chest/back armour hanging low and overlapping. Just a pet hate of mine. And if a short-arse like me can get armour to work with the proper connection points, anyone can!

Here's a two rather good comparison photos from my latest troop in Malmö.

A friend with 1 mm TM in the middle, and my 2 mm TM on the right
FX/AP - 1 mm TM - 2 mm TM


Here we are again, this time I'm on the left and my friend in the middle.
2mm TM - 1 mm TM - Sandy

Also, it barely shows in the pictures, but I weathered my suit recently. I have yet to take any good photos of this, but when you see it in person it really looks quite scuffed and banged up.

Fantastik suit Mathias, one of the best around.

I also trim my biceps smaller, then my first look.
And also add a thinner foam layer, inside the helmet as well.

Great pics

Cheers Rolf, it means a lot! Smile

I have no padding in the top of that helmet, just some on the sides to keep it form moving around to much.

If I go sandy I'll do replicate guy on the left, Rolf. Smile


Also, I fixed the overlap between the kidney and back piece some time ago, when I re-did my shoulder straps.

Here's the proof. I'm the one on the left with my back towards the camera.

I guess I should cut my hair a bit now when it's getting warmer. But as short as yours....Long, long time ago! When I just started as a conscript in the navy I had fairly short hair, but never as short as you.

Great picture btw! Smile

Sounds more fun than I had!

For 6 months I spent most of my days in an underground bunker doing intelligence work and looking at radar screens.

Hahhaha sounds like it sucks a lot/boring as hell, i was in to a interview...
and they ask me what i like the most, i just say the most crazy i could get now i´m here.
So i can tell storys later

So i in the front scout patrol, and being enemy on many drills.
We was a small squad...
trained in near knife combat, plastic explosive, different machine guns, also heavy ones.
Fire bazookas etc hahah.

The most crazy thing i have done, is i was in a fake build town.
And officer have a key board, where he could press metal figures up all over.
I have to cover about 5 other troops, there had a M75.
I had the heavy gun MG42, whit 200 bullets in.
Well i cover them, and metal figures pop up, and i blast them away, kick in doors etc.
I hate what guns are made for, but they are sure fun to play whit Laughing

M75:

Wooaaah! That sounds awesome!

I believe we have that M75 in sweden too, but we call it AK-4.
I only got to train with the AK-5 http://www.google.dk/images?hl=da&biw=1440&bih=786&gbv=2&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=AK-5&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=

None of the really cool weapons...
