  1. Welcome to FISD Sharizman! If you are looking to build a Stormtrooper. you are certainly in the right place. This is where to begin. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/38-getting-started-read-this-first/
  2. Wow belt position is great, you are almost there with the build and it's looking very nice.
  3. Welcome to FISD Corry! Looking forward to you build.
  4. Good on you Chris, keep working on those 3D files too, I'm looking forward to seeing some prints of those and am happy to work with you on improving them as much as possible.
  5. Att all troopers It gives me great pleasure to announce FISD's latest CRL The Force Unleashed Stormtrooper Special thanks goes to Glen, gmrhodes13, for his very solid build of this costume but also for his major role in establishing this new CRL. Please join me in congratulating Glen. https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_forceunleashed
  6. Yep looks good, some additional points, just make sure you center your Thermal Det, just a dressing issue, but you want to look your best in the application photos. Your grey ab buttons look almost black but this is most probably a lighting issue so might pay to take another photo of those under softer light or from a different angle. They should be the same colour as your frown.
  7. They look good. Not too large on you but just make sure they are not too tight either, for comfort.

  9. Welcome aboard Chris, look forward to your build thread and following your journey.
  10. Good to see you back on this project Jason. Nice work on the more accurate strapping modifications too. Paul certainly does know his stuff .
  11. Also Logan I am happy to work with you and your GML on this. He has already spoken with me briefly and I mentioned we are taking care of you. Our main goal is to get you approved and out trooping again.
  12. Good progress Ian, this will come together nicely. Keep up the great work.
  13. I'd say they look pretty darn good. Make sure you are aligning the tops not the bottoms, those will get a minor trim when the time comes. Make sure the top inner edge of the ridge doesn't dig into you to much else while walking it could rub and either become annoying or slowly wear through your under suit. Good to see you have wrapped them outside half over inside because once you get to trimming and adding the rear cover strips that how they will need to close. You are doing fine Rod, just fine.
  14. You are most certainly on the right track Rod and we know the fear all too well :). Dividing down the center overlap is correct and you do want to mark that while it is taped around your leg so you know the size is right. If you are still concerned cut shy of the lines you have marked, then resize to make sure. Far better to take off too little then to cut straight to the line and realise you needed to leave a touch more room. These parts dont need to fit snug to your legs and in fact are better for your overall movement if they have space to slip and slide if that makes sense. You h
  15. Glens advice is spot on, give that a try before anything else. looking sharp David.
  16. Not sure why the second image isn't showing but from what I can see it looks good. Very clean build to I must say.
  17. Can we please see an image of the shin on your leg. This will give us some perspective for adjustment and trimming, far better than the images we currently see. Perhaps one from the rear and one from each side showing the full length should do it.
  18. Beautiful work Chuck, congratulations sir, well deserved.
  19. I've said it before on your FB post, but again, outstanding work on these precision engineered carry cases Colin. Cant tell you how much I love them and to also have a build thread for them here is something the detachment is well and truly grateful for.
  20. If your concern is with the way it twist at the top so they dont align, please dont worry. This is relatively normal with several kits. tape the shin closed so the top aligns then add your pencil mark at the bottom where you need to trim so the bottoms once cut will also align. You will want to follow the contour of the shape at the bottom of each half in the event you find them too long anyway. Don't worry if they are a touch too big for you in girth, foam padding can sort that issue out if they twist while wearing them. have a look on my build thread from page 4 onward for some ima
  21. Damn Ardeshir, you are on fire!!, and those photos are so perfect. Good luck sir.
  22. Correct, minimum 5 posts before you gain access to sections of the sales threads.
  23. That's a cool project, cant wait to see the finished version.
