  1. The Onizuka science day at UHH. I'll get you the contact info from the organizers once you're approved. It was my first official troop Actually... I forgot about Hawaii Con... which I don't think anyone has trooped yet from the Pacific Outpost. But I was invited to do so when I lived Waimea and helped them with the video below (for the record I couldn't see the drink she was handing me): -Eric
  2. Heh. Having been the only TK on that rock for a few years I can safely tell you that you guys are it There is exactly one troop a year on Hawaii island. I had to go Oahu to troop otherwise. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Aha. So your email ends in @msn.com. It seems your mail server has our mail server on a block list. Microsoft thinks mail from our server is spam. It isn't even reaching your spam folder but the server is just plain rejecting the connection from FISD from the get go. I'll look into seeing how to get off their block list... wish me luck with that A quick alternative is to use gmail or something instead. -Eric
  4. Hi. Have you edited your notification options to check the "email" checkbox? That's what I had to do to get an email about your post Click on the little thingy that looks like a person in the top right and you'll see the word "options" That's where you can make sure you're set to receive email to threads you've subscribed to. Here is the email I got from your post: -Eric
  5. I think that the folks who designed the costume thought it would look cool... and space soldier-ish. Same goes for the thigh pack. I've heard it called an ammo pack or a power pack but its a dumb place to store just about anything -Eric
  6. I just subscribed to this thread... would someone please reply to it so I can test the email action Thanks, -Eric
  7. LOL That is known as the thumb print. It is on every single left bicep you see on screen A totally accurate little detail! -Eric
  8. Joseph: Don't get too wrapped up in the words. The next thing you know we'll all be arguing the same point using different words. Also read that thread I just posted. Andy: You're my new hero. Who made that bucket? -Eric
  9. This here thread should be read by everyone who has posted in this one: http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/20347-screen-accurate-vs-reality-accurate/ The words I use (and did the other day at an armor party): Do you want to look like you stepped off the screen or off the set? -Eric
  10. Nagedzi: That's awesome. Nice weathering job! I also like the fact you take the fans in consideration when it comes to accuracy. -Eric
  11. Pretty much all of the anovos return edges are too big (except the bottom of the chest) I wouldn't worry about it. There are folks out there without return edges at the top of the thighs. Check out this screen used thigh: -Eric
  12. Yep. Shoot me a PM with the username you want Although yours is quite to the point. -Eric
  13. That looks right to me. You can tell you have the right line by looking at the bottom where the cut line turns the corner. If your line meets that line you're super good to go: Also it may be easier to cut with the plastic off of the part If you're scoring and snapping that is. -Eric
  14. Aaaaaaaand.... What are CRLs? Our CRLs are a list of references/requirements to help people to be approved in a fun costuming club where we wear our stuff in public (sometimes in service of others) to make fans smile. The 501st isn't a prop replication club... it is a costuming club And yes I would say that 96% of FISD CRL changes have been voted on by the detachment (in the members's only area of the forums) not the whim of folks in charge. -Eric
  15. Because maybe it will help someone along the way. We don't delete threads on FISD. It just isn't done. Look now people can see the difference between TM, Anovos and ATA's s-trim! See some good came out of it the silliness. -Eric
  16. On the knee pack... just go right to the edge and make sure its flat without any return on it at all and you'll be good to go. If the curve looks weird and not tangential just copy the radius of the other side and redraw it to cut again. Just take of minimal plastic to achieve the curve. -Eric
  17. Oddly enough this is basically my last piece. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Yo. Is that your actual undersuit? I suggest getting some spandexy compression gear and trying it on with it to see how it fits and where it pinches. You stuff looks a little baggy. You side gaps may even come in a little too. -Eric
  19. Gordo: I am an an impolite person for totally spacing out on your question. To be fair though, I was out of the country. But I just plain forgot. (psst Heather's kidney plate is upside down) -Eric
  20. I'll be done before a certain Jawa we know that's for sure. As soon as I find my calipers I'll measure for you. Really... I have no idea where they are. It feels about the same as my TM... but thinner than my RT... but not too thin as some people are whining about. -Eric
  21. Score and snap baby! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Stop hiding this post! LOL Ok... so Paul's comment wasn't exactly helpful. So if the rounded one that everyone uses is wrong... what is right? Pointing out a failure without suggesting the right way to do it is just nitpicking. Also... we have tons of Centurions already approved with the that very s-trim that no one will ever see. No fan is every going to come up and say "Dude your s-trim is weird looking!" My issue with the anovos s-trim is that I think it is too wide seeming. Maybe I'm wrong. Here TM/Paul's S-trim that we're going to assume is accurate because he's Paul: Here is anovos: Anovos: ATA (which I use on all of my recent buckets including WTF/Gino): So... my point is... who cares if Anovos or Trooperbay's or ATA's S-trim is a little off. Do you think it looks good? That's all that really matters. -Eric
  23. All, Paul (Daetrin) has dropped out of the race making Tim Waychoff (TK-51878) Dark CMF our new Detachment Leader for 2016 (our 10 year anniversary)! Please join me in congratulating him and wish him well in his new position. Here's to an amazing year for FISD and Stormtroopers everywhere. -Eric
  24. Paul? Do you have know US source for more accurate trim? Can I assume your s trim is accurate? I can go take a photo of it if it is. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
