  1. Thanks Brian, amazing to see just how many different movies/shows you were able to work on. Do you have any favourites from the non Star Wars stuff?
  2. Hi Chris, Welcome to the FISD. I can't really see much on Facebook as they are having issues, any chance you can post some work here. That will also give us a much better chance to offer any feedback on what you've build so far too.
  3. It shouldn't matter who made the armour so long as it is accurate and not of poor definition. Garrisons shouldn't be shunning you based on the kit you purchased even if it's less than ideal/a recast.
  4. The pricing on the 850 seems in the "too good to be true" realm. The pulls in the photo look a bit soft (lacking in detail) in a few areas too. Jim is a commonly used kit, uses a semi flexible fibreglass material. They tend to need a fair bit of prep work before painting but can give excellent results with some elbow grease.
  5. Looks like you're of to a good start there Dan French France land now isn't it?
  6. Ouch, over double what the OT was then. And when it arrives Fedex are going to send you an invoice for 23% of the kit + shipping cost + handling fee....
  7. Me too, I was looking at how I could scrounge up the money but the unknown on the shipping was just a step too far. Glad I dodged that one now.
  8. Troop #16 - 22 June 2019 - Heros And Villians Hemel Hempstead (approx 4 hours in armour) So I've not trooped in *checks watch* 7 months but I was out today with Gary as Batman (part of our Reel Icons program). My wife came along to spot us, she's not a legion member but we have an associate member scheme that allows partners/close family to join us and help out by spotting. Not a huge fancy troop but we were busy and the time went quickly. Lots of small kids today, more than I am used to and I may have stepped on a few! Not overly a lot to report but it was an enjoyable troop and a nice ease back in after a busy few months for me.
  9. The oldest posts in that section are from 2007 so it's been around a while. I believe the permissions were updated recently so that non-501st members can see it exists but can't see what's inside.
  10. One would hope they are going to take some of the sweet sweet Disney money to finally give everyone their kits. Or, you know, not.
  11. Think I’ll stick with my contact lenses. Just out of curiosity, where does all this fit exactly?
  12. I think that Imperial Supply Depot might do them but I'm not 100% on that. Try @troopermaster as well.
  13. It actually looks like a pretty decent option for a Rogue One E-11 blaster. The base is right and the cylinders look reasonably accurate, being made directly from an air soft weapon might be an issue and it will be heavy. But yeah not the right blaster for an Original Trilogy trooper.
  14. Just a brief update, I'm adding a small margin to some of the items on my Shapeways store. Nothing huge, I'm going to round up to the nearest 50c, and the few extra $ every so often would allow me a to treat my self to some free postage every so often! I had a quick look at the sales and there's over 65 of the cylinders out there now which is pretty cool!
