  1. Hi Dan I’m a member of Knightfall Garrison, in Melbourne, Australia. We have several interstate and international members who regularly troop with us. If you travel to Melbourne with your kit, look up our site, join the forum and say hey. [emoji4] Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  2. 100% agree. I think it may have been you that put me onto the Prym (?) products through one of your posts. Haven’t looked back since getting one of their tools. Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  3. Gotta love the $15 for a billion clamps bag from Bunnings [emoji6][emoji1] lol You’ll work out the order and process that works best for you, just remember slow and steady wins the race [emoji4] Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  4. G’day Vicki Welcome to FISD. I take it from the Stumps Day reference you’re up in QLD - hi from VIC [emoji4] Rudi Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  5. Are you sure? Not sure if it’s a regional thing but I was able to watch it on the train home tonight (I’m in Melbourne Australia). Re the show... wow, how great was that. I actually had to switch off after 30 mins and watch the rest when I got home. It’s a real tear jerker. Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  6. G’day Edward That’s the Rogue One Death Trooper? The folks over at the SpecOps Detachment might be well placed to assist with your strapping and build questions [emoji4] they specialise in that costume, amongst others. https://specops501st.com/ HTH Rudi Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks Joseph, will cut my masks accordingly [emoji4] Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  8. Great reference photo, Dan. Thanks! Am I correct in saying the button is only painted on top, and not the walls (for want of a better term)? I’m sure I’ve seen a diagram illustrating this. Perhaps a Billgram? Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  9. All good fellas. Appreciate the feedback! [emoji1303] I’d had the photos taken at about 21.00 in a room which uses warm light bulbs, ie a yellowish light. Great for mood lighting, but not ideal for photography [emoji1] Those are the larger unedited photos. I brightened the photos in the collage for colour accuracy, just needs a bit of the old zoomy-zoom to see details [emoji6] Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  10. So you mean ab and kidney plates? Done the painters tape thing [emoji4] trust me, those babies ain’t getting any closer. There’s no requirement for them to be flush for basic approval though. Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks for the feedback. Could you please clarify what you mean by the chest and ab plates coming together? Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk

  13. Not a progress update - it’s been a busy work week. Took a few new photos tonight wearing my undersuit though. So I still have the question about back plate height for you fine folk. Is it too low? I need to straighten the back shoulder tabs and tighten the shoulder straps. That should bring the chest and back plates in a bit. I’m undecided whether to heat bath or heat gun the parts. I’ll mull it over tomorrow. I need to heat treat the posterior plate as it’s flaring a bit, and I think a bit more of the return edge can be removed. It’s also giving armour bites between my legs which isn’t cool, so I’ll need to round or reduce that section. Looking at Tony’s (ukswrath) tutorial, the tail (for want of a better term) of his posterior plate is quite narrow compared to mine. This weekend the goal is to finish strapping the shoulder bells, glue the shoulder covers and sort out the right hand side torso strapping. Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
  14. Hey Daniel I shouldn’t have TK status yet, just 501st. I’m approved as an officer [emoji1] Sent from my DH77 using Tapatalk
