  1. I have a TM Hero helmet and it surpassed my expectations! He makes beautiful pieces. Sent from my Galaxy S10 using Tapatalk

  3. Welcome David, from a fellow Missourian!
  4. Tell him to head here and have a look around.
  5. Sweet, thank you! I'll make sure to let him know.
  6. That was going to be my next question about the ATA! Thank you, sir. I have plenty of time and patience, so I should be able to use your build to figure it out! Thank you! I agree.
  7. Hello again. Today, I've been searching for bubble lenses to be fitted into an ATA bucket, but all I could come up with are these. I was just wondering if these would work or be acceptable at all. I realize that they'll definitely be harder to see out of, but I'd really like to have utmost realism when it comes to my suit. I've searched to see which color is correct for the ANH Hero but there seems to be arguments over which is correct. The CRL says either color can be used, but again, I'd like to go for realism. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  8. Wow, that was all some great info. Thank you so much. And sorry for misinterpreting the height thing! I didn't think about the local garrison thing, that's such a good idea. Thank you! Thank you! ATA is what I was thinking, and I just emailed the maker last night on the specs of it! My other proportions shouldn't be a very big deal. I'm not too curvy, and weight shouldn't be an issue with the suit fitting. The only problem I have is that the forearms will probably be extremely large on me.
  9. Hi all. The name's Tehya (tay-uh). I'm a 16 year-old girl from Missouri, and I plan on joining the 501st once I turn 18. I'm currently researching and saving money in order to complete my TK armor, and I couldn't be more excited! Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. And yes, I'm a little short to be a stormtrooper, but that's okay.
  10. Hello fellow troopers, I'm extremely new to the idea of the 501st and building my own set of TK armor. I definitely need advice about choosing what set is best for my size and budget. I've been reading through all the threads about getting started and what to buy and what not to buy, and I'm extremely overwhelmed. I've been browsing on all the recommended sites, and nearly everything is entirely out of my price range or it's out of stock. The replica boots, for example, are not being sold anymore. I have also been searching for a completely black dive suit, but have had no luck so far. I have 0 experience when it comes to crafty things like this. I don't know how to form plastic, rivet things properly, or anything of that sort. There's no way I can build this suit completely on my own, so I'm turning to you guys (and gals)! The only thing that I've decided is that I'd definitely like to go ANH with my suit, and preferably have the hero helmet. I'd also prefer for it to be made of ABS. Looking through most of the different kit specs, I realized that all of the originals call for the person being over 5'10", which makes sense, but I don't fall into that category. So here's my situation: I'm a female who is 5'7", and I'm 16. I work a minimum wage job, so I'll probably be saving for 6 months to a year just to get started working on my suit. I hope to have it complete and ready to wear by my 18th birthday. What are my main options? What should kind of kit should I choose? It shouldn't be incredibly hard to modify a suit for my body type, however, as I'm not too short for a girl AND I have very broad shoulders. I'm not too curvy either, so that should make it a little bit easier. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!
