  2. Hi, welcome to FISD, good luck with your project.
  3. Today

  5. Yeah, I'm guessing that may be it. I need to take better care of my armor...
  6. Can't tell you how many Alpha builders hacked this section off also. Nice recovery.
  7. This might work! Thanks for that. This might make it sit a lot better and keep it from flaring out. Should be the last thing I would need to do for my shim.
  8. You can use a hot water bath, some have had success with that. For adding tabs behind it could be as simple as adding some rectangles of scrap ABS or plastic sign, add two on one side and two on the other side but stagger those then they will interlock.
  9. Nice shot from the Everett Collection. Here are some more HiRes versions... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Welcome to the FISD, Leslie! There is some good news/bad news on building a Capt. Phasma costume... First, the good news! 1. Being one of the coolest characters to hit the franchise in quite a while is a definite plus. Just showing up in this armor will grab attention from young and old alike! 2. This could very well the most difficult and time consuming costumes to build in the TK world. Those who supply the (approvable) kits are pretty rare, and the cost for the complete ensemble can easily run into the thousands of dollars when you factor in not just the building of it, but the accessories (gaskets. boots, weapon, etc.)...chrome plating alone can cost a ton of cash. I honestly don't mean to put you off the idea of becoming a Capt. Phasma, but know that there is a lot involved. If you have the resources, I strongly recommend it!
  11. I am a little scared to try to curve any of my armor due to me not having access to stuff to do it and damaging my armor in the processs. What tabs to you suggest?
  12. Me: "Nice! These panels look really smooth!" My inner OCD: "PRIME AND SAND THEM ANYWAYS." Panels after block sanding to 600: ... Me: Also this. Was rewatching episode eight of a spiffy tv show and noticed this notch cut in the side of the barrel of a screen used Anthology suit. Going to try to emulate this cut with mine. Sorry for the bad quality, but you get the idea.
  13. Great work, could you also please add your troop totals to the title of this thread, cheers. Troop log title examples:

  15. I assure you that it is my pleasure to help in any way I can, Jonathan. Looking forward to the rest of your build!
  16. No matter how many times I glued the shoulder bridges, they kept falling off. Eventually I got the left bridge to dry and stick. The right side never dried properly. I filled the "trenches/gaps" with glue, let it dry and then glued the bridge to the chest. So I left the left bridge alone since it actually secured very well and I made abs paste and filled the gaps of the right bridge with paste. Hopefully this will create more surface area for the glue to adhere to. My laptop caught on fire so I'm using tapatalk on my phone to continue my progress and I'm not used to this app. Seems like all photos just show up at the bottom of my post.

  17. Thank you! And I know right? The left side is terrible lol. I wouldn't be surprised after resizing the "swoop" will be a little off. Hopefully I can prevent that from happening and if it is a little off, I think I can cut the swoop to try and make it look centered. Sent from my SM-N970U using Tapatalk
  18. Thank you for the compliment on my progress. It means alot. I will remove all return edges. Once I am near completion of my build i go over every piece and double check all return edges are removed. It makes sense and I have received armor bites from trooping in my RS kit. The only return edge I intend to keep is the return edge on the bottom of the chest plate. Thanks for checking up on my progress. Sent from my SM-N970U using Tapatalk
  19. Looking at the color, it seems as if it's very specific to those areas. As the only tan color on the costume is on the holster straps, were they in contact at some point (during storage, perhaps)?
  20. Nope you are not alone.. Got no news well the first quarter ends March, thus we still have a month to go before they broke yet another promise
  21. For those of you who have an existing OT (Original Trilogy) TK build thread here here (started on or before 2/22/20) on the FISD and are aiming for higher levels (Expert Infantry and Centurion) the Command Staff is offering up some items to help get you there! These include: 1. A set of flexible hand guards as required for Level 3. Choice of Stunt or Hero (alternative) style. 2. A complete set of screen accurate hardware (split rivets, cap rivets, TD screws and ear screws). 3. A 6 x 9" (12 x 21 cm) hard-cover TK themed journal to jot down notes during your build. 4. Once you have submitted and been approved at Expert Infantry level, you will be sent an official FISD patch and Rocker tab. So what's the catch, you say? No catch. To win this package, all you have to do is provide a link to your build thread and guess what number we have in mind (hint- it's between 1 and 1000). If you have trouble providing a link just let us know. Here is the lowdown: 1. Must have an existing build thread here on the FISD started on or before Feb. 22nd, 2020 (and provide a link). If you have trouble doing this, just contact a staff member. 2. Must be a FIRST TIME builder. 3. Contest ends April 23rd, 2020. Winner will be announced on April 24th. 4. Open to all future TKs world-wide. 5. You must post up your guess ON THIS THREAD! One guess per future trooper!! Good luck to you all!! Stunt (or) Alternative (Hero) Notebook Hardware FISD Patch Expert Infantry Rocker tab (Goes right above the patch)
  22. My sincere apologies, Robert, but Brian Mentioned that: "I helped Robert with the photos and the calf halves shifted a bit when I was aligning the thighs and calves for the front photo. Normally they are closed and do not show any opening. A slight twist back in one direction and the halves line up nicely and are fully closed". Can you add an updated photo of those as well? Again, no need to get fully suited up, just the calves. THANKS!!! Side note: AWESOME job on that 3D blaster!! No print lines.. I wish all those who 3D print their weapons could see what can be achieved with some serious sanding and filler. WELL DONE!
  23. Nice job so far, Matt! Since you are going for the TLJ version, don't forget that (as per the CRL) Basic approval (and above) all metallic surfaces require a "Mirror like/unweathered" finish. You have some serious sanding time in front of you, but I look forward to seeing your progress!! Keep up the great work!
