  1. Hi Lindsey and welcome to the FISD!
  2. Hi Simon and welcome to the FISD! Congrats on your armor purchase. Stick close to my buddies @themaninthesuitcase and @CableGuy they will steer you in the right direction and can help giving you advice on getting approved within the UKG and the 501st. Have fun!
  3. Just to go back a minute to the armor white. I just so happened to take my MTK out of my helmet bag earlier today and here is a current photo of it next to my troopermaster helmet which is actually older then the MTK. Now mind you I've done the armor white on this helmet now 3 times and it keeps coming back. The last time I did it was before the last troop and then I put it right back into this bag. So what does this all tell me? I certainly believe it comes down to the type of plastic used. I'm not sure what type of plastic MTK uses. And also I think that once it yellows then the armor white is only a temporary fix. Unless @TK-4510 says differently.
  4. Couldn't agree more with all of this. This buy 1 get 1 offer always makes people want to jump on this armor but it really is no where near as good as our approved armor list and even a good handful of non approved armor sets out there. I'm sorry you spent your money on this junk.
  5. Brian how tall are you? You will need to have some go under for sure in order for it to look right. But of course you have to make it work with your height.
  6. If you wanted to you could just sand down those shoulder bridges a tad. Nothing crazy. What kit are those bridges from? And for the cod, I would round it off some. Just make sure it’s comfortable no matter what you do.
  7. Well hello Frank. Glad you made it over. Hopefully our GML team(me lol) will be with you soon! Please take a look around and don’t hesitate to ask any of our helpful members any questions you may have.
  8. Hi Seth and welcome to the FISD!
  9. Honestly I think the only long term fix would be to paint the armor. I've done the whitening job about 4 times on my backup ESB helmet and it comes back every time. It's okay because I don't really use it. But my armor is the same plastic as that helmet and I've done the whole suit twice now. So I'm almost to the point that I will just be upgrading my armor this fall. My armor is already 5 years old. I will also say it certainly comes down the type of plastic that was used. I got my first helmet from troopermaster which is over 5 years old and it has not yellowed at all. My ESB helmet and my everyday armor is MTK. If I stand next to a newer set of armor you can really tell how yellow I am.
  10. I can confirm it does not remove these stains. I’ve used it to whiten my armor in which it does a good quick fix. It’s not long lasting and the armor will yellow again within a month or so. But if you do pull your armor out for a troop and it’s yellow you atleast can try and whiten it the day before and have it white again.
  11. Cricket nailed it. This has happened to me before after just throwing everything in a bin. Exactly what she said. Wet sand with 400 grit, then move up to 600, etc I did all the way to 1600. Then once it was gone I used novus to polish it back up. I spent probably 2 hours total on it one night while watching TV. I had two spots to do.
  12. I don’t know if anyone has tried doing that. But to answer your question, yes ROTJ would be the only option.
  13. Hi Chris and welcome to the FISD! Can't wait to see what you are able to do!
  14. Hi Travis and welcome to the FISD! Good luck on your build!
