  1. Most armour makers would be able to supply you with one. The colour match won’t be perfect but so long as you get ABS not capped you should be close enough.
  2. Having enough disk space for the amount of images we post would cost a small fortune.
  3. Hi William, welcome to the FISD. Best bet really is to start by having a read. I'd suggest starting here Then as you're tall try this one Once you've had a read of those if you have any further more specific questions then feel free to ask them. FWIW I have an Anovos kit and I wouldn't be looking to use them for a 2nd.
  4. You're probably right, I suspect that they've burnt the people who would have kept them going had this been plan A.
  5. Just saw this from clicking through on what I didn't realise was a photobucket image: https://support.photobucket.com/hc/en-us/articles/360004314254-Welcome-to-the-New-Photobucket- Seems they have new management with a more realistic plan in place. Hopefully this is a good thing but they've lost a lot of trust now.
  6. Welcome to the FISD, you can leave your robes on the death star.
  7. This is another on my to troop one day list. Looks like you had a great day.
  8. TM uses a reasonably white ABS. He sent me a sample ESB hand guard set to compare to my Anovos armour and share the results with others. The Anovos is reasonably off white, where as the TM is more clean white. I don’t have any CFO to compare to sadly. Hope this is useful.
  9. I was hoping for a Celebration Europe this year, never mind. Have fun in Chicago everyone who attends.
  10. Your best bet is to speak to TM. He will know his armour better than anyone.
  11. If you log on to the website you can change your email in the Settings panel. Click on your user name top right, then pick account settings.
  12. If you can get some black non leather Chelsea boots you can for the old fashioned (and more accurate) route and paint them. I have no idea if this is something that exists but it would be what I’d do.
  13. I've trooped my "custom" build doopydoo about 10/11 times now with no issues. It's been knocked a few times, kids have handled it a couple of times, but not dropped. I am sure if it was dropped it would be a sad day but I don't goof about to that point, I am a soldier of the Imperial Army after all!
  14. You've done amazing on this one. I need to upgrade my dad game!
  15. Reposting the Power Cylinders Template by @PlayfulWolfCub as they seem to have gone missing. This isn't the original file and so it's all a bit JPEGd now, and you can't trust the "Print at 300dpi" bit. E11 Cylinders M38 M19 variants by Christopher Pearson, on Flickr Click through for the largest size I have.
  16. I have wolf cubs plans he released ages ago if you're feeling up to building some:
  17. You can also try Burkbench designs on Facebook. It’s the orignal owner of ISD, but he kept a few of the items he used to do when ISD changed hands.
  18. The extreme directionality is a bonus in my mind. Helps to reduce feedback and sound leaking. Tramp was recommending this style on AliExpress. Note the ones he linked to were sold out and I found this in search. I've not personally tried it yet but I would like to as I have the other wireless type and it's driving me batty.
  19. Coincidentally our Garrisons head armourer posted an E6000 use warning that specifically calls out Tetrachloroethylene as the issue, it even has a .gov.uk page about it https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/tetrachloroethylene-general-information-incident-management-and-toxicology
  20. Just found out, that E6000 has been banned in the UK! RWA bulk buys from the UK distributer and was told that it's now banned, but they are making something new which will conform to regulations. I can't seem to find any details of the ban so not sure if it's a UK thing or EU thing. Hopefully the new blend of herbs and spices will be as good as the old one but getting E6000 here is awkward enough.
  21. Hi Peter, welcome to the FISD! The getting started section has a list of suppliers who are in good standing and is a good place to start. Also have a look through the build section to see what other options are available. Some suppliers will do a commission build for a fee, some won't so you'll need to ask. However I'd always recommend building your own kit. They are built to fit the wearer and most commissions will still need adjustments. Further down the road you'll almost certainly need to repair some parts as wear takes it's toll and the build experience will help a lot. It's really not as hard as it first looks once you get going and there's lots of help available to those who ask for it. Good luck.
