  1. Sorry guys I'm rarely over on this side of the plastic colour spectrum. Thanks to everyone poking in and helping out on the questions. My personal preference is for the Black AM kit ... But as RT is a Canadian Made kit - If I were to go for a TK that would be my choice. Just my opinion ... Jim to answer your question I'd think both kits would work for you, but please have a read through a few of the build threads here on the FISD, and ask a few troopers that are close to your size what kits they have and how they fit. Thanks again for looking after this orphaned post guys!
  2. Hi All - Thanks for the posts. Sorry I lost all my "thread post notifications" when the new look happened (nice by the way). Thanks for making the size chart Eric - That's Fantastic! And Dave if you're looking to go Sandy Grab the AM in white - comes with the handplates, proper ab plate and proper knee plate for both the TK and TD. And head over to Alpine as well - Great bunch of folks! And if you see Izzi (the XO) tell him to mail me my glassware (just kidding he's my DL over at Spec. Ops - and a great guy!)
  3. Ernesto - A trooper posted in your post on Special Ops - he's 6'4" and 275 in AM ... so I'd say that'd be your best bet (if you're going black).
  4. Terry let me know when that goes down as there is not a lot of good Asian food / delicacies out here in the Okanagan and some good bubble tea and steam buns would be amazing! And Welcome JKChen - Hope to see you around the Badlands boards!
  5. You can also head over to the Spec. Ops board and have a look around - There are a few kits for sale, and posts from the makers as well. http://forum.501stspecopsdet.net/ Sign up and say 'hi' we're a helpful bunch.
  6. Looks Great Terry - Thanks for sharing!
  7. Will - Have a read in this forum as there is a tonne of information and it'll help answer your question. This might be a good place to start as it's right on target with what you're asking: http://forum.whitearmor.net/index.php?showtopic=12693 Examples of taller / bigger troopers in two suits. And, as you'll read, I'm 6'1" so you're not much taller then I am and my suit fits me perfectly - maybe even a bit too long in the thighs.
  8. Dan - I'd say so far so good. And as great a site for information and feed back as this (or any internet sight for that matter) may be I'd say see if you can post pictures on your home garrison site and ask for feed back and/or some hands on guidance. Chances are there will be a bunch of people more than happy to lend a hand. Canadian garrison Contacts: http://www.501st.ca/contact.html Seems like the forums are closed to non-501 members but an e-mail to the GML might help, or wait for one of the Garrison Members sees this post and hopefully the wheels will be in motion. I learned
  9. Yves - Welcome in, and great to have more Badlanders! It was great meeting you at Vcon. Make sure you get on the Badlands forum and get access into the inner-sanctum - More Troopers in Vancouver! Good To See!!!
  10. but let's also look at your first post ... I'm not trying to bait anyone just want to point out that your initial post, had it been e-mailed to Julie, could have been taken poorly. I applaud you for changing your tune. One of the main reasons I got into this hobby is that not only is it a tonne of fun and I, my son and my wife love it but we do a lot of good for local and international charities. And having read a few of Julie's posts, seen her event pics and heard what she does for a living - She embodies this concept: "Have fun while helping others". I get the feeling that
  11. Congrats Lori-ann! More Troopers in the Badlands - Always good to see!
  12. First I'm pretty sure RT is on Vacation. He also works a TONNE so give him time to get back to you. He's a great guy to deal with. Second don't go for a cheap eBay kit ... You'll end up paying more in the end. Have a read through the Armour makers post in the "Read Here First" area and talk to those guys. If you can't afford the prices these guys are asking ... Then Save Up! It may take a while longer for you to get the kit but in the end you'll be happy you waitied. Plus the customer service you get from these guys will be, with out exageration, one million times bette

  14. DISCLAIMER: This post is in no way saying that the suits here are your only options. These are just the two that we happen to have on hand and that I built. There are many other options, but these are the two names that are mentioned most often when the topic of "what would fit a bigger trooper" comes up. _________________________ Hi All, After seeing a huge amount of troopers asking "what armour would fit a bigger trooper" I went and asked around and no body had any measurements. I asked the maker of AM and the maker of RT and they both gave me their blessings to share th
