Hello everyone! Today is the day! I got my first ever armor in! I ordered the AM armor from troopergear and it looks like a shiny plastic dream! This armor is a little bit different as it has been updated on this run. here is the list of changes:

-Helmet has been completely redesigned to be more accurate in overall size, and tube size. Still maintains our 3 piece design for durability. Trim lines and screw dimples have been added for easier assembly

-Overlap strips have been removed from the Calves and thighs and forearms and will require butt-joint / cover strip method of assembly.
-Calves have been belled out / widened at the ankle to fix an issue with previous AM version.
-Thermal Detonator has been redesigned with a new custom extruded abs tube in the correct gray color, with new control pad and caps.
-New shoulder straps, also including smooth ones for TD builds.
-New abdomen and knee belts, more accurate.
-New drop boxes, includes inner drop boxes
-New more accurate knee plates

I am building the ANH Stunt armor and because of these changes they are a little different from the builds I have been studying on the FISD boards. There are a few people doing this armor as their first as well so I will be following them as well. I will be posting pictures as I go along so if you see anything I am doing wrong or could be doing different please give me pointers and tips! Also, if anyone in the Fort Wayne area is free this weekend and would be willing to meet with me and give me some pointers that would be awesome! I can't wait to start!
