  1. Past hour
  2. Hi Theresa and welcome to FISD, to answer your questions - yes and that´s infact what most Troopers do
  3. I am looking myself. If I find them I will let you know. Building an ESB Snowie as well. Thanks Tom
  4. Hello welcome. You need something answered. You are definitely in the right place .
  5. Today
  6. Hi! I haven't purchased a kit yet because I'm still trying to decide which armor I want to buy. Is it possible to have something that will be versatile...for example could ANH armor also be used for a Heavy Weapons Trooper with the right modifications? And then eventually turn it into a Sandtrooper once it becomes all scuffed up?

  8. I think I have an idea how to round out the front, back, and bottom surfaces of the grip. Stay tuned. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Congratulations trooper! nice work!
  13. So just to preface this, I’m not expecting to troop in this any time soon if at all. See I managed to snag this suit not only on a whim…, but also the exponentially cheap (it was ridiculous at how little I nabbed it for) and I always kind of wanted one even if I was just going to mangle it. I already have a TIE reserve and so this simply isn’t the primary. My intention was intending to go for the Clones but I just stumbled onto this and without seeing another seller whose asking price wasn’t a kidney and my first born child, I thought “why not?” and just got it. So it got here within a day and I frankly don’t see much wrong with it outside of what I've already known about like the button plate being upside down, the heretical rivets on the shoulder straps, etc. I'm going to frankly take this piece by piece as to not overwhelm myself but also make some progress as incremental as it may be. I'm in no hurry to finish it and I already have an approved suit so I'm just going to take my time. I just figured since ROTJ is used in most builds and this has the most resemblance to it I'm probably in the right ballpark to do this. Lets begin; 7/20/2019 I cut off the stock fabric strapping seeing as it's not very good and I could see this snapping at some point. I'm not going to bother with the chest today seeing as I have work soon. I'd like to know if I could just cut the part with the rivet holes off. It seems like that's more of a hassle in refilling it than it's worth and I could use that epoxy sculpt on other things like refilling the holes on the chest plate. I also feel like the detail on the pectoral region is a little soft. Maybe it's just me but I feel something is up with it. It wouldn't be difficult to correct if it is though and probably no more than a few hours of work to make that sharper.
  14. I'm going to post this idea here in case it works and helps. For the shins/calves and forearms -- my wife had an idea for the mitigating the issues we are seeing when you glue the front of the shins together and get cracks from flexing the back side: -- Gluing a strip of elastic from top to bottom on the inside of the front. This will hold the front together theoretically but allow clam shell action and the elastic will take all of the bending. What do you guys think?
  15. Hey everyone thanks for the warm welcome! You guys rock.
  16. Ok so I have been on the forums for a bit working on my first build. But wanted to say hello. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/47279-very-first-build-am-armor-anh-stunt-will-update/ You know first exciting day is big brown box. But today was just way to cool to know I have my TKID ... Will wait to post that later with a few more pics ... Check out my build and if I can will post more about the adventure later.
