  1. Hello Brent and welcome aboard, I found trooping in my TK much more comfortable compared with the clone trooper. Some great threads full of info: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/38-getting-started-read-this-first/
  2. I use elastic straps and snaps, I find this allows some give when you bend especially for bending really low, then will pull back in position when standing upright. V Tabs looking good, I've only used one either side to date, normally it's enough but I also have more elastic strapping. For anyone following the closer to the ends the V tabs are the better as they stop the plates from opening up. (pre double snaps)
  3. Looking forward to seeing the progress, just remember measure twice so they can cut once
  4. This won't end well, some may not understand why the costume may not be approved straight out of the box, although I'm sure a few will slip through with some GML's, I can just hear "but this guy got approved without making changes". Oh and yes I know this can happen with any makers armor. I'm still waiting to see the excerpts from their "professional Stormtrooper builders" and what experience those professionals have and to what standards do they build, costume, screen accuracy or club inclusion. "All together you should have enough to cover the essentials to start your build into the becoming a stormtrooper. In our next piece of this series, we are going to cover The Gotta Haves vs Nice to Haves - excerpts pulled from some professional Stormtrooper builders out there who have done and seen it all themselves!"
  5. Congratulations trooper and welcome to the Centurion ranks, well done
  6. I made my own, wasn't that hard, you can find a lot of heads you can paint or modify, well not on the cheaper figs they are just a ball on a neck
  7. Normally we post build threads here https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/80-anh-build-threads/ Pre approval thread https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/193-request-tk-pre-approval/ The pre approval thread is more to check that you look right before you submit to your GML (garrison membership liaison), you don't HAVE to post there but it's great to get feedback, especially if you are looking at higher level approvals.
  8. You may find you receive more feedback if you post photos directly into your build thread, many of us use Imgur a free image host, great how to here This thread is full of helpful tips When in doubt we have a huge gallery section full of references https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/gallery/ Good luck with the build, looking forward to seeing the progress
  9. Best check with the @Deployment Officer Team for higher level approval. I started getting some bleed though after wearing mine a few times.
  10. Great to hear you are still on track
  11. Great to hear, welcome to the ranks trooper, once you have your numbers you can request higher forum access here
  12. Looking good, unfortunately Paul you will have to remove your UKG tag from the shoulder bell, this has come up quite a few times in the past, some have a second shoulder bell for this reason. Or tape over the decal, carefully lift each corner and peel off with the top tape, then add back on when your photos have been taken "Here is just one post in an application by a DO asking for it's removal, again there are more and this has always been the case since I've been a member, most will seek L2 and L3 approval and once approved just have decals applied again,"
  13. Some have RS and are happy. Look through some of the EIB or Centurion threads for sizing and quality here's a couple (just look for RS in the title)
