  1. Moin Trooper! Welcome to the ranks!
  2. A picture is better than words. That’s the way I installed the strapping of my arms:
  3. Hi Steven, congratulations to your armor! From here I don’t see a point against a successful approval. For the next level(s): The only point i actually can spot is that there are no elastic bands at the shoulder stripes. The plastic shoulder straps need to be held down in the back via a white elastic band to the white fabric that connects/bridges the chest and back piece. For the problem with the forearms: I installed a black elastic strapping on the inside between the forearms and the biceps. That prevents twisting. Great work trooper! Cheers Christian
  4. Hello and welcome to the FISD! As Syl said, building an armor is not that hard as you may think. Research is the key, asking questions and doing patiently one step after the other. At the end of your journey there is a great armor you can be proud of.
  5. Hello Kristin and welcome to the FISD! Have a look into the boards and you will find what you are looking for. If not don’t hesitate to ask whatever question you have. Don’t be afraid of building or modifying your armor. You need only a few simple tools to do this. Cheers Christian
  6. Hi Pierce, welcome to the FISD! Here you will find all the information you are looking for to complete your journey of becoming a Stormtrooper. Check some of the many build threads here to get some inspiration for your build an then start your own build threat. That's a great way to show us your progress and ask for help if needed. Cheers Christian
  7. Hi Richard, Congrats brother! Your armor is looking great!
  8. Welcome to the ranks Dave and thank you for sharing your story!
  9. Welcome aboard Lucas. It's great to have you here.
  10. Congrats to your approval. The picture is looking awesome!
  11. The black is looking great now! Good luck with the gray spots tomorrow.
  12. Hello and welcome aboard. Good luck for your build!
  13. Hi Michael, Good luck with your project! Haven’t heard of the maker before. I’m looking forward to your progress. Cheers Christian
  14. Hi Vin, as far as I know, there are no exact measures for the TD screws. I always place them matching to the reference pictures. Cheers Christian
  15. Hello Marcel and welcome to the FISD! If you are planning to become a Stormtrooper, this is the perfect place to get all the information you will ever need. Es sind auch einige Landsleute im Team und stehen Dir gerne mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Cheers Christian
  16. Hello and welcome to the boards. RS is a great set of armor.
  17. Good morning Paul, I’ve checked the last two ROTJ Centurion applications and there are no pictures of rivets at the kidney plate. The last ROTJ-TK was approved January 2018... I didn’t find a post about CRL changes regarding this point. Maybe Tony or Sly can tell about this point? Edit: There was a question about the kidney rivets on October 26 last year. There was no reference found during the discussion. Cheers Christian
  18. I‘m trooping with a Hyperfirm rubber E11 and wouldn’t change it... well perhaps against a Praetorian Blaster... but only because the better detail. Rubber is my favorite for trooping because I don’t have to care about damaging the thing. If you want electronics in your Blaster, resin is the way to go. There you have the space for the parts and the weight is good for trooping.
  19. Hi Bradley, you can move the strapping closer to the outer border to correct the shape of the buttplate. Alternative you can correct the shape with a warm water bath. I favour the first solution. Cheers Christian
  20. The knee is looking absolutely great!
