Re: Reporting in from Central Illinois

Just saw on the main page that there is a St. Jude walk scheduled for November 22nd, in Normal. Are any members going to attend this ? If so I'm hoping that we can come up there and get a bit more insight into the MWG and trooping in general. If you are planning on attending, can you PM me?

Re: Reporting in from Central Illinois

AH, just realized that the AM helmet is one of the 3-piece ones. Might have to opt for a different one, as I don't personally like the look of the TK helmet with the seam running along the back.

Re: Reporting in from Central Illinois

Good to know. I'm hoping his wait time is not as bad as RT-Mod !!

Re: Reporting in from Central Illinois

Just out of curiosity, are there any issues with the AM helmet ? In doing my research I have heard others remark that they went with the 'lite' kit, indicating they went bucket less on their order. Wasn't sure if there was a problem with the helmet itself, or something else.

Re: Reporting in from Central Illinois

Heard back from Mike at MTK, looks like his armor might be just on the small size for me. At least not without a fair amount of shimming.

Anyone have experience with AM armor that is in the 6'2" 220lb range ?

I think I might be leaning toward the MTK armor build. Not sure how long it will be with RT-Mod, but he is not even taking orders till after the 1st of the year. I'm assuming it will be awhile.

Re: Reporting in from Central Illinois

Okay, so I was going through the email that I received from RT-Mod, and he listed a bunch of measurements. That got me thinking, the bicep measurement listed was 16" and I'm 17". Since I lift weights, I would guess-timate that I will be at the larger end of the chart. Anyone here have experience wit...

Re: Reporting in from Central Illinois

Yeah, I look at some of the builds over at FISD and I have to admit it is intimidating. I imagine after doing it, your nerves do begin to settle. Hoping to maybe hook up with someone around here and take a peek at their armor up close and get an idea as to the way the returns, edges and such are done.

Re: Reporting in from Central Illinois

Thanks for the kind welcome, Kev. Good to know about the armor parties. When the time comes, I for one could use all the help I can get. It's one thing to hear the description of how to build things, and even to see the pics, but it's another thing entirely when you're holding the piece in your hand...

Reporting in from Central Illinois

Hi everyone, I was referred over here through FISD and looking forward to becoming a full-fledged member of the unit one day. I have to admit that I'm a bit overwhelmed, but I doubt that is new to anyone. I've spent a couple of weeks over at FISD going through the posts, trying learn as much as I ca...
