    Hey folks,

    Finished my armour a wee while ago, just finally got some pics done, (not great pics as I had to do them myself with the timer.) I went for an ESB style on this armour as it's my fav. Tell me what ya think

    (P.S. Special thanks to a few folks who were kind enough to help me out on some things: Paul the "troopermaster", TonyRB and of course, Jez for all the reference material on your excellent site mate. Not forgetting "AP" for an all round excellent experience/service. Thanks guys )





    Cheers, Gord.

    That is an incredible set of armor. I would love a set like that for trooping. I have a TE glossy and non glossy set but its so hard to find the time to complete strapping them. Can you tell me where to go for some tips?

    Gord, top job my man, you wear it wear it well too. You're welcome for the advice, trimming the armour is a bitch isn't it but worth it in the end as your photos show.

    Great to see another ESB

    Thanks again for the kind words guys

    Tony, yes mate, it was a bit of a biatch to trim it all out. Like you said though, it's all worth it in the end. Very happy with how it all turned out

    Cheers, Gord.

    TK8410, when I saw the first thumbnail I could have sworn that someone had stolen the first pic of me in in armor. Even the background looks like the home we just moved from.

    After looking at the full size pic I saw quickly that your's is much better than mine. Great armor. You should be proud

    Great job. I love it.

    Of course, I NEVER refer to this stuff as "armor" myself because it just doesn't live up to it's name throughout ANY of the Star Wars movies.

    I thought it was only supposed to "deflect" laser blasts. Not able to stop a "straight shot", though.

    Can I ask what makes this an ESB version? Is it the hand armor? I notice that those are different than the hand pcs in the photos that the AP guys sent me.

    Well, one difference I know of is that the frown on the helmet is painted black in ESB instead of grey as in ANH.

    The main differences for ESB are black teeth and decals for the trapezoids and tube stripes on the helmet,different style hand guards and the holster worn on the right hip.
