  1. Welcome to the FISD. Looks like you're off to a great start, good luck with your build.
  2. Welcome to the FISD. I'd recommend you check out the requirements for the EIB and Centurion programs, if you aim for then from the start it makes it far easier to pass. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/95-expert-infantry-program/ https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/66-fisd-centurion-program/
  3. Looking at that suit I think it's more intended for the Rogue One/Anthology TKs. Those suits did have that style of ribbing. Rogue One Stormtrooper Reference CE 2016 by Christopher Pearson, on Flickr
  4. Starwars.com only seems to have the 1st 2 seasons. Wookiepedia has them as "Imperial armored commando" https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Imperial_armored_commando
  5. Looking like you are making some good progress. I would echo glen though and make sure you are checking the CRL so there are no issues or heart ache.
  6. Small amount of movement, only a test but promising. I thought that having a movable hinge on the front grip could result in a lot of stress on the threads that may eventually just strip out of the blaster. To fix this I have added some heat set inserts. This gives me some nice metal threads that can't wear out. Similar to how I have added space for nylocs in the body for the "holster" bolts. In hindsight I wish I had used inserts here as well. If I have to reprint I probably will do. I also added them to the magazine mount. I have a power switch mounted here so ease of access is important, and so is a secure fix. These are easy to add. I just need a hole the right size added the the 3D file, I have values setup for this now. Once printed I simply drop in an insert which has a "nose" to locate it, and then use a special tip on a soldering iron set to 210C to slowly push them home. Dead simple. Like all projects as I near completion on them I look back and think of all the things I would do differently if I started over and adding these more widely would be one such change. I have some electronics parts on order, so hopefully my next update will be on that front. I also have some printer updates happening which I am hoping will release the flow on parts I need to complete the build. Then it's "just" paint
  7. Got to obsess over the little details
  8. Congratulations both of you. Thank you for your contribution to the detachment.
  9. https://www.501st.com/forum/app.php/howto-detachment-affiliation I'll need to find out if that ship has sailed, or if this login will count.
  10. Hi Jervis, You are currently marked as 501st TK here, are you referring to the Legion status? There are certain processes that get run in the run up to the elections, and this would include expiring membership where appropriate. I don't have access to the full data, but I would expect this is what has triggered this status change. My first guess was when was the last time you logged into the forum before today?
  11. Fantastic work Marc. Really hope I get to see one in person at some point.
  12. Welcome to the FISD Good luck with your build!
