Awsome! I'm interested inwatching this as the version I got was the unmodded prototype version and this one has the cleaned up restored and added parts. They have done a beutiful job with the restoration too. I don't think anyone could have done better.

When you say you got a mixture of 1.00 mm to 1.5 mm parts like the original I'm not sure I understand that as the originals were pulled on one big sheet all at once apart from the helmet and added later detail parts like the ab buttons,sniper knee and shoulder straps.

The original ("Si-man") suit which RS Prop Masters have is made up of material of varying thicknesses apparently (1mm & 1.5mm).

Yes but it's common knowledge that the original suits were pulled on one big sheet of abs.maybe some parts are thinner but they all started as one thickness before being pulled. Maybe some of the original plugs were more raised than others making the plastic stretch more over the plug.

Or some suits were pulled in thicker plastic but the parts later got mixed up with parts from another suit pulled in a thinner plastic.

It's possible I guess considering the double shin,bicep and forearm. I still like my theory that some parts were just more stretched over a more raised plug. It's easy to do.I'm overjoyed with my 1.5mm though.

I decided to go for the full suit in 1.5mm too instead of all this mixing and matching.

I have now changed my mind after a lot of thinking over the week end and make this RS suit in to a Lukes ANH Stormtrooper suite and with it use My TM Hero lid for trooping , my TM hero , which imho is the best looking Hero out there , the hero lid is ABS capped gloss and is a preety good match to the PVC , so all i require is a grabling Hook i have the com link .

How much of the face plate top dome was cut/trim off, on the screen used.
Could some one draw a red line where to cut it.
In a way i like to leave it as it is, because of history value.
I have leave some before on my TM helmets, and it fit/holds the foam good as well in there
Cheers
