  1. A new hopearmor is under 2 mm thick in most places . A 3 d print isnt going to be strong enough . your best bet is to buy armour from a reccomended supplier , and use the 3d printer to print the gun , there are plenty accurate patterns on thingiverse
  2. Tk uk is awful...and most importantly, very inaccurate and a ton of work to make acceptable for the 591 st . Think of it as a Halloween costume, not a trooping option .
  3. The drop boxes can just be superglued to the dangling elastics. The attachment method is invisible when worn .
  4. Yeh, if you want boots that have the correct shape for a stormtrooper , these days , imperial boots are about your only ( and best) choice. They ship swiftly and are a reputable vendor .
  5. You need to check the c.r.l. Ive not looked in a while, but I'm sure it specifies one ear black stripe to the rear of the ear , not front. But I may be wrong .
  6. Being seen in public minus the helmet is a huge No No . Don't do it .
  7. Stormtrooper armour has moved along quite a bit since this helmet and armour were around . Unfortunately , I fear you are going to have to forget it and buy a complete new set up if you are planning 501 st membership . Sorry to be brutal , sometimes it's just cruel to be kind .
  8. Teeeth mesh shouldn't be used . It wasn't in the movies , looks rediculous and is no longer needed in modern Hal screen accurate helmets . Get over it troopers .... it's SO 1996
  9. sorry...nearly necroposted ...that'll teach me to be more observant !
  10. Look, having built many RS armor, you are worrying about nothing . Get hold of the black elastic and tear it upwards away from the inside of the shoulder bell ...it will come away easily . Then re position it and glue it back with superglue. I have done it many times..it's so simple !!!! Even thinking about re stitching the snap is a stupid idea,
  11. Remember, the RS is taken from a real screen used suit ... the curve of the backplate is screen accurate ...leave it that way . i notice you mention re inforcing the shoulder bridges ...don't . They need to be as flexible as possible . Make them solid and they will snap . Check screen caps for glueing them on , from memory the 5th ridge sits on the edge of the chest...but check .
  12. Take your time and buy the very best first off . Buy cheap/inaccurate =buy twice =money wasted . You can leave buying boots until the end of the build , so order from imperial boots when they open the next run .
  13. Couldn't find the PayPal tag for imperial credits, so I sent a few dollars instead . Glad to help.
  14. If you order from RS you have a six week turnaround , and can request a smooth helmet from them as they have a mould for people who don't like the movie accurate look . Unfortunately I don't know TMs timescale . Hope this helps.
  15. Delivery will be around six to seven weeks after you place an order . The secret is to take very accurate measurements to allow them to build the suit for you . Delivery to Belgium usually takes about two days from leaving RS . These days they are fast at replying to emails...and of course are always available on the telephone during working hours . hope this info helps.
