PostSubject: TM build questions   TM build questions I_icon_minitimeThu Jan 19, 2012 10:49 am

So last July/August I made an enquiry about upgrading my TK, and to cut a long story short last week my brown box arrived from TM. Not really started it as I need to complete my Commander Cody (guns are boxed over the pond and ready to ship) as I want to give this my full attention.

So I’m planning the build but have a few questions.....

1.Has anyone split the cod on a TM so it can be flipped up to help with WC visits? I was hoping to but it looks like there is a natural curve on a TM about the waistline which is putting me off

2.Back of the calves originally I was going to use Velcro but after seeing ‘Joey’s’ pics of the suit TM made for him I’d prefer to have a crack using the bra hook thingies! The issue I have is when trooping, how fiddly are these to get on and off? Is there enough give in the elastic to get your foot through without having to hook & un-hook each time?

3.Return edges – these need to be taken off the wrist part of the forearms but are they kept everywhere else? If so what sort of size(s)

4.Cover strips – are the sizes: 15mm for biceps & forearms; 23mm for the legs? Additionally should these be left square, have rounded corners or have the corners trimmed at 45 degrees?

5.Heat gun work – I hate heat gun work!! So the place I’ll defo need to use this would be on the battery it best to heat from the inside & concentrate on individual ‘give points’ or go for a nice clean curve (maybe lash it round a tin of paint or something?). is there any other bit I need the heat gun for?

I thank you genii (I had to look this up as I also thought it was geniuses)
