  1. Sorry for being late to the party and once again welcome to the Legion, TK-66744. You wrote a great story and it really tells how much you wanted this, Luca. Now you have reached this goal and you have taken your first step into a larger world. Enjoy your time as a Stormtrooper and have fun out there.
  2. Congrats Luca, glad to see you made it. After your first troop you will surely find more little things to improve. That's part of this hobby, so don't worry...
  3. In case you should come across a suitable acrylic tube for this purpose it makes sense to slightly sand the outer surface to get that frozen effect. This helps hiding the actual LEDs and improves the look. But for the moment I keep fingers crossed for your scrap plastic packaging material.
  4. Yes, it actually works the same way. You need an online host (like Youtube) to upload your videos to and then place the link in your thread. That should work. Oh, and great job done so far.
  5. Welcome Charles. Do not forget to request your 501st access here. Have fun and enjoy being a 'bad guy doing good'
  6. Yes, it was fun yesterday and time flew. I was surprised to realize we had met for about 10 hours in total. I keep fingers crossed for the basic approval application and hope we took care of the issues for the higher levels, too...
  7. Regarding the helmet padding issue: I guess that is because Luca was taking the photos while being in armor, without any other person. We will definitely take care of his padding (and other little things) when meeting for the approval photos at the end of this month.
  8. Hi Luca. A thing that sticks out to me on the above photo is the upper end of your forearms. Maybe you can still trim those sharp edges around the elbow to look softer. I can't paint a coloured line into your photo but what I mean is to cut away a triangle shape of the outer half, lining up the inner and outer half to match in one straight line. In case I wrote it too complicated, you know how to contact me.
  9. Hi Marco and welcome back here. Keeping fingers crossed for you to reach your weight goal. Glen already pointed towards AM and RT armor. Here are some links: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/50707-tk-6427-requesting-esb-centurion-status-am/ https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/50357-tk-20112-requesting-anh-stunt-centurion-status-rt-mod-491/
  10. Instead of literally shorten it, maybe you could just install additional snaps on that strap to get the same effect and to vary in future. Yes, we'll definitely look over everything when we meet for taking for the approval photos. Also I am curious to see Richard's ideas on improving points, so we can get the best out of your armor. And yes, for the basic approval I would suggest to skip mobility cuts for the moment. You are slightly taller than me, so that should work.
  11. Maybe you can just warm it up and bend it more forward? Looking at the full rear and full side views on page 1, everything seems to be where it should be. Or lift the butt plate, kidney plate and rear armor by shortening the shoulder straps from front to rear. Maybe that works... Wait, this cannot be undone. Is it really required? How tall are you? I am only 175 cm but can easily walk stairs (both ways) in my armor without having any mobility cuts. Found mobility to heavily depend on the strapping.
  12. Very good. Many troopers use the standard foam padding and end up with the helmet sitting too high above the shoulders. By trying different thicknesses you will be able to lower your helmet as much as possible. As a side effect, this will also improve your vision through the helmet eyes - especially on short distances right in front of you. Try it.
  13. No worries Luca, you are on a good way. Hope our phone call yesterday helped you with a few things and to get an overview of the 501st Legion and trooping on events. Just sent you some PMs with additional info to consider. You can contact me anytime.
  14. Ha, ha. Yes, by moving to NRW and getting basic approval, you will definitely join the same Garrison Squad. Being one of two Imperial Attachès in that Squad, it is my pleasure to help you getting in contact with our local community. For some events there are ways to attend even without an official membership. For example as a handler. A simple way to learn a lot. Feel free to drop me a PM here to discuss any further things. Would love to help, because that's what we are here for. As for the higher levels, I just wanted to make sure you are aware, because if you plan to reach these, it is far easier to build straight to these standards, than to later change your suit.
