CptCasey's Gunner WIP

Post by CptCasey » Mon Aug 07, 2017 3:51 pm

Thought I would document my progress for future reference and to help other along the way.

Background: Finished my TK in March '17 and got accepted into the legion. After finishing my TK to Centurion status, I felt the need to build another costume. After doing a little research, I came across the concept of the 5 in 1. Essentially 5 costumes that all have the same base (Gunner, Bridge Crew, Navy Trooper, Reserve Pilot, Tie Pilot). This meets everything I was hoping to do with my next costume. I wanted something with mobility and something that I didn't always have to wear a helmet with. Plus I got to be a Gunner which have my favorite helmet.

Shopping List:
Helmet: WTF (ordered and having them assemble it)
Flight suit: Pilot Bay (ordered)
Belt: TIgg-Wolf (ordered/received)
Boots: Purchased from Merlyn (really nice authentic Knobelbechers)
Balaclava: thinking Under Armor Tactical Hood (oredered/received)
Neck Seal : Darman (already owned from TK)

Optional Accessories:
ESB style holster for my Hfx E-11: thinking Darman
Belt Boxes: thinking Philo (ordered/received)
Gauntlets: leather mystics (ordered/recieved)
Commpad: planning on ordering two, one from targ that lights up and one standard from DTR1 (ordered and received)
Code Cylinders: ordering some elvistrooper rod style...edit: ordered and received from Philo
Bibb: need to get my flightsuit and belt to measure before I order from Woopdeedo

My main build thread on the IOC: http://www.imperialofficer.com/forum/in ... -crew-wip/

Feel free to leave any advice or ask any questions.

Edit: Fixed issue

Ok wow, that picture is huge. This forum is a little different than some of the others as posting images go. Can I shrink this image down without altering the actual source image?

Does your image hoster provides options for thumbnails (basically they shrink it for you)?

Nope, I'm the hosting the images on my personal webserver. I can do thumbnails, just didn't know if there was an option on this forum, since I don't have this issue on others forums. No worries thought.

Fixed issue. Just resizing images from now on. Didn't need them taking up that much space anyway. :)

Okay. Yeah, once we move the forums to IP.Board, that will become less of an issue. That's on my roadmap this month.

Got my belt from Tigg-Wolf after 5 months of waiting without an update. Worth the wait, but lead time was off by 3 month with no communication. Still...a might fine belt.
