    Site security issue

    Do you remember what the security message was saying? We appear to be using Lets Encrypt for our SSL and they only have a 3 month life, a new one was issued yesterday so could have been related to that.

    Missing Snap/Rivets on RS Armor

    Looking at that photo of the shoulder strap it looks like the male half has come off and is still in the female half sewn to the white elastic. For the holster remove the failed rivet then use a longer one but back it up with a washer to stop it pulling through again. Alternatively you can rivet on a snap, I did this for mine. There’s a post towards the end of my build thread in my signature.

    HOWTO: post images on forums tutorial

    This post if from 2010. A lot has changed in the image hosting landscape since then. There are more recent tutorials about that I am sure someone will be able to point you to.

    Rogue One Stormtrooper CRL

    If I remember tomorrow I’ll try to go to the original and get heavy handed with some sliders and see if that reveals some more detail in the shadows. Looking at the version on Flickr it might be an S trim but that’s entirely based on detail in the shadows on the right side.

    Controlling volume..another alternative?

    I’ve not tweaked mine in a long time whilst trooping. As with others I figured out how loud I can get it before it feeds back and then marked that in the dial. All I do each troop it just dial it to that line and call it done.

    ANH Stunt helmet scratch build

    In general that's just an assembly difference. The face plate is pulled separately from the cap and back. Depending on how the brow was trimmed and bolted up (and how rushed the build was) you get a number of different looks. This is further exacerbated by the fact the left image is a hero helmet and the right a (sandtrooper) stunt and one well know for a large gap. The hero face plates are different, but I've heard multiple explanations as to why. As for which is right? All of them. If you're building a hero you'll want no gap, a "move along" sand trooper, a big and lopsided one. Generic TK? probably somewhere in the middle but really it's up to you.

    Wired or wireless for this set up?

    Most people I know who've used wireless, me included, have ended up back using a wired connection again. Admittedly not using iComm as that's not very common here but using a number of different options.

    A question

    Welcome to the FISD, you are indeed in the correct place. Personally I wouldn't purchase from that seller. There's a fair options available to you depending on budget and needs. Your best off reading through these two threads and then if you have any futher question you can ask them and be more specific.

    TLJ Captain Phasma CRL Thread

    Right then time for some change requests on the nice new CRL! These are what I've been fed from the armourer team in my Garrison. 2nd Blaster needs changing to the pistol Cape has only one strap, currently says 2. Quick Silver Baton description is wrong - no circles, they are all rounded slots. "The Baton has a cut out sections centered 1/3rd from each end that is comprise of a three Rounded Slots which match the onscreen reference." Undersuit is not shiny for the "shorts", it should have leather or pleather type satin material. Oh and Davids ID is 19666 not 16714!

    Help with decal removal

    The tube stripes on mine were removed using Humbrol enamel thinners. They pretty much just wiped off!

    Hi from the UK

    Welcome to the FISD, once you get going the team over at the UKG will help you out and get you trooping. Just a quick tip though: once trooping no pointing the blaster at peoples heads.

    Anovos TK Centurion Build

    Yeah that's on the wrong side. The holster for ANH sits on your left hip.
