TK11965 Reporting in

I just wanted to stop in and say that my assignment email arrived from the 501st and I'm looking to participate in my first Troop this weekend in the Peoria area if possible. I'm not sure what to expect, do or even how these events work so if someone could suggest an event that'll have a couple of o...

E6000 and PVC Armor

I've seen many posts from people using E6000 on their armor but I didn't know if it's safe for PVC armor. PVC is in the same thermoplastic resin group as PE, PP and PS but while those 3 types are not recommended for E6000, PVC isn't listed but I don't want to assume it's okay. Anyone have experience...

Re: Care and Cleaning of Armor

Are the erasers the best product for shining the armor as well as removing marks? I'd like to put a shine on the entire set so I want to check before I do it.

Care and Cleaning of Armor

I seem to be collecting black marks on my TK armor which are caused by the armor coming in contact with my painted blaster or other things around the house. The armor is RS Prop Masters PVC and I'd like to find a safe product to clean and then shine it up. Also it seem to be collecting a light coati...

Re: Hello Midwest Garrison Members!

I'm near LaSalle/Peru which is exit 75 on Interstate 80. I just received my armor and it looks great! Takes a bit of getting used to putting it on and moving around but that'll come with time. In order to join the 501st I believe I have to make a submission to my local Garrison for approval. How do ...

TK Helmet Microphones and Speakers

With my armor still weeks/months out I wanted to get a few things ready. One item potentially is a helmet speaker and microphone setup. Based on member experience is this something that would be useful/needed/a good idea? How about a helmet suspension system? Do hard hat inserts work? Thanks for the...
