    Linus' ANH Stunt Build (TM)

    Hey Dave, some great progress here and looking good. As to the return edge, it really depends on how much you want to try and reshape that but plate. The less return the easier it will form fit. generally anywhere from 3 - 5 mm return edge is plenty, and in some cases we have troopers that remove it completely to better shape various parts. The screen used armour had virtually all return edge removed, most probably so the various plates could flex a little more when worn by the actors, but that choice is up to the individual. Keep up the good work

    TK31310 saying g'day!

    Hi Sarah and welcome to FISD!! great to see another Aussie join the Detachment, and great costume too.
  4. Definitely a solid build and easy basic approval. The guys have given you some great advice so if you are looking to go for a higher accuracy level like Expert infantry and centurion, they will have you on the right path. Great work trooper

    Husky68 3D Printed E-11

    Cool, I'd be interested to see the results as have considered trying this myself on a PLA print. Hopefully you can maintain good detail, so please post up photos once you have experimented.

    Is this glue acceptable?

    Always a safe bet to experiment a little on scap pieces of abs to see how much time you have to move the two parts before the glue bonds. E6000 give miles of flexibility in that respect. I used CA glue on my first build and a little goes a long way. I think I'm up to 6 kits now where I have used CA whith great success, but always recomend experimentations before using any glue on your armour, not only for practice but to work out how much to actually use as coverage varies from agent to agent.

    Could *my height* be a distraction???

    We have a few tall troopers in our Garrison, they look fantastic and intimidating, the general public are always in awe. You will love it, I'm certain. We also have the other extreme with a couple of troopers that are 5'5" and they also look awesome.
  14. You won't regret it, it's just so good for cleaning scuff marks and scratches, and the shine after you give your armour a hand buff with a micro fibre cloth is beautiful. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Once you are finished sanding with the ultra fine grit wet n dry sandpaper, get yourself some Novus Plastic polish. The kit comes with three grades 3 being for deep marks, 2 more refined polish and 1 for a super shine. Not only will you use it tO get that ABS paste on the shims looking great, you won't regret the overall shine it brings to you full kit after heavy trooping. It is well worth the investment, I and many others here can garuntee it.

    Greetings from South Korea!

    Welcome aboard Yoomi, we hope you enjoy all the time you spend here in our wonderfull Detachment.
  17. My sentiments exactly Paul We are about uniformity as you would imagine it would be in the real world. End of the day, we can't control what a trooper wears on a troop, they own their armour and it is theirs to do as they please. I have lost count how many times I have said this old chestnut, We are not about prop replication, that is what the RPF are for, we are the 501st with our own set of standards.

    Anovos FOTK Armor Delivery Possibility

    If you head on over to our 3D parts and technical threads and look for the F11-D 3D files, when you download them you will find a PDF that shows a breakdown of what colour all the components should be. I don't beleive it has colour codes but at least you will know what should be black, white and silver. hope that helps.

    Digz Graavz First Build - ANH Stunt from AP

    Chris I just want to say, what a great job you have done on the sniper plate. I have built 3 AP kits now and can tell you the plate just never aligns quite straight. The small gap underneath the centre should be irrelevant as it is not part of the CRL and not a photo that is asked for in the application process. To get it as close as you have and to have the sides aligned with the top ridge is a masterful effort, well done. Centurion is well and truly within your grasp.
  22. This story needs to be in the Newsletter as a highlight article. It's a feel good point and thanks to Chris (Digz) for sharing.
  23. Hi Vicki, glad to see you are finally going to make your dream a reality. How are those students going now you are all back to work and school? See you at Pink Stumps day
  24. Awesome work and thank you for the updates Rebecca
