  1. I mentioned on one of the other post, that I added white gaffer tape on the inside of the center box across into the inside front of the thigh. I did this as an homage to the costume crew from the original movies who’s go to was white gaff tape to fix everything. It has been there on my thigh for 6 years and worked without fail. It allows a tiny amount of movement but stops the ammo belt from raising or dropping past a few mm. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. No we currently dont run on Discord. We use FB for announcements, a monthly mass mail out news letter but the forum is our primary place of business.
  3. Hey man, you are looking pretty awesome. Only things that stand out but will depend on your GML for basic are the shoulder bells. They have quite a gap at the top between the shoulder bridges. i can also see they are pulling the elastic out from under the bridges. In reality there should be little to no gap, so you can try a few things. Remove all the return edge at the base of the bells to get them flexible and sitting as close as possible the the biceps. Then shorten the top elastic straps to bring the tops in closer to the bridges. This is a higher level requirement so if you can make those adjustments it will put you in good stead for higher approvals. Also make sure the outer edge of your drop boxes are aligned with the ends of the plastic ammo belt, another requirement for higher levels and more screen accurate

  6. OK I discovered that even my own build threads for my E11 and AP armour were victims of ye ole PhotoBucket water mars. Now fixed. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/28366-slys-ap-anh-stunt-tk-build/page/8/ https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/28297-slys-first-build-e-11-doppy-full-resin/ Restored by Me lol
  7. Indeed, just focus on getting your basic approval then all guns blazing for EI, and Centurion.
  8. Good luck Dan, dont forget, if your GML is comparing to the latest CRL you can direct him to our post regarding the grace period for any that has started building based on the previous version. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/50062-rogue-one-tk-crl-update-2020/
  9. That's pretty cool Jessy Sorry i have no lead for you on the dog costume as yet.
  10. Awesome sauce, not long now and you will be finished basic approved and applying for higher levels, I have foreseen it
  11. Thanks Glen. I have started to build the CRL using your work Glen. Once complete it will go under LMO review Thanks for the effort you put in and those that started the original work last year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Personally, I use the Novus plastic polish system. there are 3 grades available depending on the extent of the scratches, in a simple 1,2 ,3 system. The 1 is a high gloss spray on wipe and buff off to shine up your kit. 2 is for minor scratches and the 3 for heavier scratching and crazes. Mine has lasted me years and still going. No reason a reasonable car polish cant do the same, I just went with the specialty recommended for plastic.
  13. Some form of comfort is pretty darn important. Nothing worse than spending good money on your dream costume and not being able to wear it because it hurts too much. The small steps you are taking will have a big payoff in the long run. Great work so far. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. It’s correct above his Avi as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. It’s an AP kit lol, one of the more difficult sniper plates to fit. I ended up heating mine and reshaping it to align the sides with the top ridges. Challenging but fun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. The back plate piece is a very similar design to the TFA FOTK where it hooks over the top and the TD attaches to the bottom, minus the groves that run down its length of course. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. No, but they are a stack of fun to build and there is some great information in the E11 build threads. The DD kit was the first part of my 501st journey, I learnt a lot during that process and enjoyed every moment of it. It's stood up to 6 years of trooping only requiring small touch ups in paint chips over the year, the rest of the time it is on display in my home office.
  18. To help answer the question regarding your kidney piece, If those tabs are not visible from the outside of your armour and are simply there to allow better alignment you will be fine. The CRL and review only cover what is visible. We ask for images internally and of strapping only to better help understand how the armour is sitting on you if thee DO's see an issue with alignment of parts etc.
  19. I’m just going to go back a few posts to where you are looking for a way to stabilize the knee ammo pack. I simply used gaffer tape behind mine to reduce its movement. I use a strip in the center inside of the box that runs up to the inside front ridge of the thigh. It stops it from dropping but also raising or tilting up. You would never know it is there. I chose white gaffer tape to honor the production crews, go too patch job on the screen used armour. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. The other big thing you can’t replace is the feeling you get from building your own kit. You will be asked multiple times once you are approved and trooping where you bought your armour and you will be able to take pride in stating you built it yourself from a kit. You will learn new skills and be able to talk in confidence about the experience and joy that it is. I promise you, you will not be disappointed if you assemble it yourself.
