  1. Nice work trooper, would you have any other images or a little more story, could be an inclusion to the monthly newsletter, here's an example
  2. Have you thought of posting this on the legion boards, you may get a bigger response. Strike that I just noticed you did. You could also reach out to the legions diversity team ldo@501st.com
  3. Costumes have different ID prefixes, for Stormtrooper it's TK so you would have ST and TK. You can find a full list here http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:CRLbyname It the numbers which never change
  4. I use doubled over elastic and that works for me.
  5. Nice work and to think I just used silicon in my first helmet
  6. I'd say they had enough ear bashing at celebration Anovos, get it together guys, you've had 4 years now and consumer confidence couldn't be lower.
  7. I've been trooping in an ATA for 7 years, just updated to my spare kit which has just been built so hopefully will keep going for another 7 years. My first ATA did get a couple of cracks from air transport that and some of the glue yellowed, which most didn't notice but I did, converted that set to a Sandtrooper which is now approved also. For other armor head to the Getting Started section, you'll find a thread on "vetted sellers" I'd also say no to a second hand set, you may very well have to modify it to your frame and if that's the case you may as well start from scratch. Good luck on what ever you decide.
  8. Have a look through some of the build threads, you'll find a lot of tips and tricks in those. Make sure you wash all the parts with soapy water, sometimes than can be residue of release agent on the armor. Good luck and looking forward to the build.
  9. Congrats on your first troop, some great photos there
  10. I find on areas that are still a little curved that the cover strips need more pressure to hold them, use of clamps and masking tape can help this, when you apply the cover strip hold with clamp then apply pressure to the thighs and wrap tape around, this will help hold them until the glue dries.
