    First Ever Build - ROTJ Stormtrooper

    Great to see another ROTJ!! Although I'd usually advocate studying the CRL for new builders, in this case I'd recommend not doing so for the reasons already mentioned. I built mine years ago..and even back then the CRL was wonky. Best bet is to do as suggested and follow any recent EIB/Cent threads for advice. Sent from my SM-J320FN using Tapatalk

    Trooper lenses question

    I have bubbles in both my ROTJ TK and my TIE. Honestly..you get used to them. Saying that..the TK is much easier to see out of than the TI is. Different makers will yield different results. Sent from my SM-J320FN using Tapatalk
  4. Honestly..as maligned as they are..I delibrately chose to do ROTJ over ANH. They are just so rare a sight, despite being on basically every piece of official merch for decades. And they do have a quirky charm about them.. Sent from my SM-J320FN using Tapatalk

    What to do with old FX TK?

    Zombie that sucker up! I did exacty that. Old fx kit...ordered a few B grade parts-helmet, thermal det etc-from another vendor(RWA)..dremeled the heck out of everything, painted and cleared it.It was actually great fun to do and got a great reaction at a recent Con.

    Undersuit with gaskets?

    Yeah I kept mine seperate too. Knee gaskets popper to thighs and shins, Shoulder and elbows are sewn together and worn almost like a jacket. Means I just wear a tshirt and leggings as a base layer. Sent from my SM-J320FN using Tapatalk

    Trooper Spreadsheet?

    I always found this pic helpful in showing folks the differences in lids...(apologies for not crediting the maker) As the ONLY non-ANH/S Imperial TK in my Garrison it's a handy visual aid to explain why my suit looks "crap"...it's supposed to! Sent from my SM-J320FN using Tapatalk

    Grade B armor???

    I recently got a few B-grade pieces off of RWA. Can't fault the service..and the pieces themselves-lets just say these B grades are better than some other vendors "A" material... Sent from my SM-J320FN using Tapatalk

    ROTJ First Build Adventure!

    Great work so far, fellow ROTJ! I used E6000 on my CFO kit..still holding up even after 6(?) years. Sent from my SM-J320FN using Tapatalk

    E6000 Banned in UK!

    Maybe cos it causes cancer?? Sent from my SM-J320FN using Tapatalk

    Can I use...

    I've used E6000 on practically all my builds too..and haven't had any real issues. My ROTJ TK is going on 6 or 7 years old and still holding up strong. Sent from my SM-J320FN using Tapatalk
  15. Weathering is a tricky one. You just know there are plenty of folks out there will go overboard and end up making Sandies look clean! Photo refs or very specific text descriptions would be ideal. Also..the weathering for certain troopers would need to follow a very specific technique imo. The FOs who raided the village in TFA returned to base with a very specific style of weathering which IMO would need to be emmulated by the applicant. Some of the Endor TKs were filthy too..one or two would give Sandies a run for their money. That'd be another tricky one to balance. Sent from my SM-J320FN using Tapatalk
