  1. Past hour
  2. On asking the other DL's, neither ACD or Pathfinders are interested in the Tread Speeder Driver particularly. The important factor we need to make a new costume CRL is someone willing to make the costume and we create the CRL from and during that process. As to the F-11D and Electrodprod, yes indeed we need to look at these. The costume CRL based on everything we have discussed and seen would be virtually identical to the TLJ CRL with he addition of upgraded weaponry. Otherwise we create a caveat for the TLJ to represent TroS if its decided only weapons are the difference. Either way yes we need to action it.
  3. Nice work trooper, just a couple of things you may need to address. Remove a little paint from the teeth area, you have just couple of areas they appear to go onto the gums Frown is painted gray and does not leave the teeth area Also not sure if your shins are close all the way at the back but you do have a gap at the top on the ridges perhaps if they are closed add some strips of abs behind, compare with the CRL reference Good luck with approval trooper

  6. While waiting on legs to print, paint to dry and all the sanding I did also work on a smaller project for this. It's a periscope that will pop out of the top of the dome. It was a easy print and I was able to source all of the metal (nuts, bolts and tubing) from Ace Hardware.
  7. Yeah I have um. Worried about the material between the vents getting thin.
  8. While all of this has been printing I have started to spot putty the dome and also sprayed primer on the frame. 3D droids guy say to use Rustoleum Filler Primer. I forgot how much the smell of this stuff lingers after it's been sprayed. I'm going on about 4 or 5 days and I can still smell it. This is only the first round. I am gonna be sanding, filling and adding more primer in the near future. The weather here in Georgia has been wonky and it's prevented me from taking this outside.
  9. Still printing legs. It feels like forever! 5 more pieces and everything will be printed for one (1) leg... ugh. I still need to go back and print all of the same parts below the shoulder for the other side plus one more shoulder piece. I don't remember when it was the last time I wasn't printing a leg part.
  10. Small thin flat files, you can normally get them in sets, round ones are good for curved corners too
  11. Hello everyone. I started on my bucket today and I'm not picasso with the dremel. The cheek vents are rough. Any suggestion to make them look better? Thnx Ben
  12. Depends on the armor, you'll find if you wrap painters tape around quite tightly they will pull together. I use a combination of clamps, magnets and tape for assembly. For getting your trim lines nice and straight after cutting a long block of wood with sandpaper wrapped around can help. Also scuff the surfaces that will be glued with some sandpaper, gives the E6000 something to grip too, any excess glue you can usually rub off with your thumb once dried.
  13. A busy Saturday rewatching Star Wars: The Clone Wars from the beginning so I can start season 6... but that has given me plenty of time to work. I've trimmed the return edges on the my forearms (front and back of the inside, just front of outside piece). I've started assembling the left forearm, so we'll see how it turns out tomorrow. I do have a question. The halves of my right forearm don't quite match up, and I was just wondering if this is normal or not.
  14. Thank you very much for the answer, I'll be checking the different suppliers

  16. Yesterday
  17. A genuine question on this thread...what are we researching now? The Sith Trooper is with Spec Ops. Has the Tread Speeder Driver landed with ACD or Pathfinders? If so that leaves us an update of the F-11D (tbc but looks likely based on reference to date), and the Electroprod. Where will they feature in a CRL? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  18. I would suggest having a look through some of the build threads, many post what they use in the helmets and armor in regards to electronics
  19. Hey I'm looking for the best voice changer for the ap helmet I've been looking into the Ukswrath's Stormtrooper Audio System w/Voice Modulation was wondering if anyone had any tips or info much appreciated!!!
  20. That was quashed pretty quickly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  21. Has anybody added a voice changer to their ap helmet if so what's the best one to purchase I've been looking at on called Ukswrath's Stormtrooper Audio System w/Voice Modulation
  22. Fantastic news, congratulations and welcome to the ranks trooper
  23. This is one of those way outdated images which are still referenced, hopefully when the How To sections get a good going through some of the basic info and images can be updated. I know when I started I used Billhags images a lot but looking back they are pretty outdated with some details compared to what we know now.
  24. Hello and welcome aboard, researching is the key so you are on the right path, as well as going through the "Getting Started" section you could also perhaps have a look through some of the build threads, will give you a good idea of different armor and the building process. Good luck and hope to see a build thread from you soon.
  25. Welcome aboard! you took the right path by joining here Mark (A)
  26. Welcome aboard, Llorenç. You’ve come to the home of the Imperial Stormtrooper. :-) Personally, I would suggest you purchase your armour, when you are ready, in one go. If you purchase in various goes, you run the risk of the plastic being different shades of white. Not a good look. Trust me, it’ll be worth the wait. Regarding suppliers, this is a really good read; https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/11538-the-various-types-of-armor-and-where-to-find-them/ Take a look at these suppliers and their various price points. Then, compare pictures of what they are offering against real stormtroopers one the movies. You’ll then be able to choose the best looking kit for your budget. Before you spend any of your hard earned money, I’d recommend you post your thoughts here. We have a lot of experienced members that might be able to guide you to, or away from, certain suppliers etc. Any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask. :-) Best wishes Dan/CableGuy
  27. Hi all, Whilst recently helping a trooper with his build I noticed a discrepancy with the below Billgram. Many troopers follow this guide and leave approx 20mm between the main plastic ammo belt and the first holster fixing. As below, I believe that the reference images from the movie troopers confirms that this should be more like 40mm. I would suggest that we suggest this approx distance for any future builds. Please sticky if deemed appropriate. Best wishes Dan
