  1. No problems mate always worth asking. Sorry you have been waiting so long, Anovos has dropped the ball massively and it's just a shame how many are still waiting. If you want to have a look at what they have so far for the CRL head here https://forum.specops501st.com/forum/171-first-order-sith-trooper/
  2. Could use anything for strengthening, strip of plastic, abs paste, 2pack epoxy glue, resin and mat, JB weld, really what every you have handy. Any cracks you really want to get a hold on as soon as you can as they can split further with any pressure and movement.
  3. No Spec Ops are still working on it, they had a couple of projects to get done over the last few weeks so there has been another delay, I have been assured that they will be completing very soon
  4. I had a lot of success with split using gorilla super glue gel and a kicker spray, once that spray gets in it welds like metal.
  5. Appears they have better luck supplying sewn costume pieces than hard armor
  6. Shipping will no doubt be taking longer with all the disruptions around the globe, hopefully you'll start seeing parcels soon.
  7. I find etsy hit an miss at times, I always try to do a little more research, see if they are also listed on a forum, web page, facebook and such, the more places you find someone the less chance they can disappear easily, not always works but can help
  8. Great news, nothing better than BBB's, good luck with the build, when in doubt head to the gallery section, lots of great references there
  9. Hello and welcome aboard, as Joseph mentioned there are lots of builds for those on the lower edge of the scale so have a good read through, good luck
  10. A tip to get your black lines nice and clean is to go over with a black permanent marker, a bit easier to control than a brush at times
  11. They can be a little narrow, I went 1/2 a size up and they fitted great but most seem to go 1 full size.
  12. Check with your GML (garrison membership liaison) some are sticklers for the brow height, some not so much, it is their decision at the end of the day
  13. It does look a little low, just slotting and slightly angling the two side screw holes behind the ears can allow you to tilt the faceplate a little which will move it down from the brow trim, that is an option, although it will change the gaps on the ears so could need some more tweaking.
  14. I kept a lot of return edges, have very skinny arms and legs so it helps keep the armor in place, also use a little bit of foam in place to stop them flopping around
  15. I'm sure you can still save those ears with a little bit of tweaking and sanding, here are a couple of great threads: I'm sure you can do this, good luck
  16. Hello and welcome aboard, firstly do you want to become 501st approved as this is not a budget hobby, if it's only for fun and giggles then I'd suggest ebay, If indeed it is to join the 501st have a read of the thread posted above Good luck with the research.
  17. My pleasure, here is one on return edges which may also be helpful
  18. Really depends on the paint and how it dries, personally I'd leave it, totally dry it out, quick sand and see if you need more primer or glazing putty
  19. You have quite a lot of return edge there Gallery section can be of help
  20. Post from 501st legion forum: https://www.501st.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=106862&p=1352596#p1352596 Halloo! It has been five years since our last drive for donations to pay for Legion hosting costs. Over the past five years, we have shifted our servers to the AWS (Amazon Web Services) architecture, utilizing Cloudfront CDN, RDS databasing, Route53 DNS, and AWS Firewall security, as well as regular backups and the storage thereof. We adopted a Google GSuite account to provide a more efficient email solution that also allows us to utilize an API to allow for opt-out, expanded our domain registration account with both Amazon and GoDaddy. And not least, we have taken on six detachments (FISD, IOC, MEPD, BHG, SLD and soon-to-be SP) to be hosted under the Legion account. We push an average of 650G of traffic a month between the main site, Databank, the forums, and the hosted detachment sites. Our last drive in 2015 raised funds to cover the Legion's hosting bills for the period of February 2015 through August 2020, and it was a drive for only 501st.com. It is time for us to pass the bucket again - combining the drives for the Legion and six hosted detachments. Our first goal is just to keep the lights on for one year for 501st.com and the six detachments, no contract, paid month to month. Our second goal would allow us to lock in a contract with some price savings for three years, while our third (stretch) goal would allow us to go beyond that as well as explore other services and/or enfolding more detachments (if they choose) under the AWS account. Please make sure you are logged into the forums, and then take a moment to visit the donation page, and make a small contribution to help fund the site: https://www.501st.com/donate/ There you will be able to make a donation and see how we are progressing at meeting the goals for this drive. If anyone has any questions - feel free to post here, or to email us at lwm@501st.com. Thanks You! ~C Rhaethe Legion Webmaster NOTE this is open to members and no members alike, anyone can donate "troopers helping troopers"
