    There's been a lot of scout talk recently so I thought I'd share this with you guys.

    I was looking for some bicep armor with the correct T bit a little while back. After a couple weeks, a guy from the UK contacted me and said that he was working on some new moulds and could hook me up for about thirty some bucks.
    I figured sure, new moulds of the usual ABS. Boy, was I wrong.
    I got some heavy, thick, fibreglass biceps with correct T bits. They have to be almost twice as thick as my armor.

    He just sent me some pics of his new back piece with the pinstripping embedded into the armor. His skills are sick.

    That is some thick armor. Can those protect a person from high speed tree impacts?

    I’m no biker expert ; but they don’t look like “ correct T bits.” to me. :confused

    The top detail appears to be the correct wing detail from Darth Vader's tie fighter.

    I've never seen a clear enough picture to prove or disprove the bottom detail.

    Cheers.

    He took some liberties with the bottom part since there arent' any decent reference photos of it. IMO, it's one of the best out there.

    Very nice.

    Fiberglass rules. That armor will outlast the 'awpokeelips.' ;)

    I figure once youve got that top Vader Tie fighter part...it pretty much establishes the shape and form....any exatrapolation is easy from there.

    They're the closest match to date. The vader tie piece is a definite and there is room for creative liberty on the bottom piece due to limited reference :)

    The biceps are nice too btw ;)
