    May 25, 2010, 7:09 PM - IF TM MADE LAGER :-) I AM SOOOO VERY HAPPY #1

    IF TM MADE LAGER.....
    It would probably be the best in the world :-)
    Seriously I think his armour may just be.
    Firstly my thanks to Paul on his patience while I got funds together and for such a speedy delvery and being an absoulte gent with his correspondance and service.
    I cannot say how pleased I am to own this armour, I have owned a few in the past but this is SUPERB, it cries quality the minute you see it for real.
    Cleanforms, amazing detail and a nice guy who happily offers advice. People like this are why I joined the forums.
    Well here are the pics.






    I really want to make as best a job as I can on this so please, anyone with TM experience, could you please help on a few comments at the bottom, mainly tools really.
    I am making a list of all I need and I am gradually saving reference pages from here and other forums for reference and pics that will help on the build.
    Any advice very much welcome.
    1. What is the best tool to trim with rather than a blade, I am UK but have seen snips used, can anyone advise on the best
    2. I see snaps and rivets used for screen acurracy, again UK if possible can someone point me in the right direction of make and model, where from if possible.
    3. Where can I onbtain a good canvas belt.
    4. Where best to get earth magnets and what size, how many.
    5. Any other tips.
    Helmet will be handpainted ad I will use E6000 throughout
    Thnakyou
    THANKS AGAIN PAUL>
    Enjoy and if you get 1 set of armour in a lifetime, I say TM all the way :-)
    Best wishes

    The best tool to trim armor with is a dremel.

    Curved hobby scissors for the rough cuts and even some of the fine. Dremel when you want to be even more precise and even.
