  1. No. It means he doesn't publish it. Email him and he will tell you his pricing and the current wait time.
  2. OK. Anybody making a suit for 501st approval has free access to the CRL. Anybody making a suit different from that CRL and expecting it to get approved deserves to be unhappy. Screen shots of screen used armour count. Promo shots do not. Concept shots do not. Extra features that don't appear in he actual movie don't count. So, if you are making a suit, and you have a screen capture without holsters, a detanator , or overlaps, fine. People got dressed badly. The continuity people on set failed. The armourers rushed it and never thought for a second that it would be noticed. The CRL is a recipe for a iconic rotj suit. A suit that has a td because most did. It's not your fault as a suit puller if the people buying your suit aren't following the recipe. Their fault. My butcher isn't to blame when I screw up a steak. Inner over outer looks dumb, shows a seam from the sides instead of smooth lines and functionally is a point of being snagged on things. If the TD is actually a push button distributor for two or three small explosives, they'd all have them so a missing one or is just an error. Get approved with one and take it off for non canon troops. Or, like shore troopers have a b and c, petition the LMO or the DL here to add a second basic approval without one. Do you not supply a TD with kits? We don't have a clause for Mr no stripes for anh suits but I'm sure people have a second helmet sans tube stripes.
  3. That's because the original ships were captured on 80mp sensors. Force awakens ships, about 6mp. And flat. And fake shadows. And fake lights.
  4. This is from this year's parade Nov 2016. No signs, not even stolen no parking ones.
  5. If it looks right. Abs, fiberglass, 3d Print, basic approval should be fine.
  6. Yup. They are nifty. Just like scouts. They get overrun, snuck around, and fall for ruses. Just like scouts. And why by appearance? How else should we judge them. Cars are classified by appearance. Planes. People. Detachments aren't populated by appearance. There's red stormtroopers in spec ops. Deachments are populated by jobs. Fisd are infantry. I guess, Marines, technically. Jrs are naval aviators. IOC are naval officers and crew. DZ are for the most part, tattooine inhabitants. Bf ...hoth troopers and the GM who would have been the snowy ancestor ( There is a white GM). SL are...well...One of the Two. Pathfinders are exclusively scout variants and now the Pathfinder. Let them shore...Get it...Shore up their numbers. fisd has plenty of members and costumes. And there will be new Stormie's every movie. Whee.
  7. Define pathfinders? In Canada they were descendants of British light infantry rifle regiments. Lived off the land, carried very little equipment, and we're both excellent shots and tacticians and still lost many troops behind enemy lines. Biker Scouts...A misnomer...Are light infantry. First in. Decimated by teddy bears and rebels. Shoretroopers...Run side by side with stormtroopers. They die faster. Because star wars armour is an intimidation tool for unarmed masses, not actually useful defensive armour vs blasters. They're not engineers. They may be hit and run specialists. After rogue one they got the same upgrades the empire did everywhere and new bikes. Fast attack light infantry. Scouts. Pathfinders. Recon. LRP. Same stuff different day.
  8. Yes, it does. And if you're black, and have a snout, you're spec ops. Reminder that they are ALL stormtroopers. Just different armour. Would it be easier to just call everyone in armour TK? Yes. Would new members care at all? No. Would existing members care about two letters if the detachments still existed for swag and builds and shirts and photos with other TK snout troopers and other TK black armour troopers? Some would. Others, not so much. Just leave my DZ alone.
  9. Except that everything is a TK. The 501st invented the other id codes. Snowies are TK in winter armor. Scouts are TK in light infantry gear. TX are special ops TK. All soldiers. Just different load outs.
  10. Make abs paste. It will be the same colour.
  11. Glue and strips inside where the screws go and they might sit flush. But then that wouldn't be hyperaccurate. Which is why people use that bracket system. Right?
  12. Just wear black thermal compression gear. If you wear a neoprene suit you'll drop.
  13. Love my ata. Long wait but worth it.
  14. Mines just all glues together . Put it on like a shirt.
  15. Uh...that's a pretty insane amount of webbing to just hold your thighs. Have you tried just a belt? Or like many of us are your hip bones well protected by insulation? I mean I just use a 1 inch webbing belt with a parachute clip and two dangling bits to hold the thighs. Suspensions are attached to my midsection separately.
  16. Always order up a size so you have room for gell soles.
  17. You need a perfect helmet. No asymetry . But check the crl.
