  1. Prop store have an auction at the end of the month and one lot is a TLJ screen used helmet. https://propstoreauction.com/view-auctions/catalog/id/138/lot/28672/?url=%2Fview-auctions%2Fcatalog%2Fid%2F138%2F%3Fpage%3D20 Whilst none of us are likely to have the money to buy it, there's some amazing images as always so some excellent reference.

    Expert Infantry Application Guidelines

    The basic 501st clearance is done by your Garrison GML. This gets you your tkid and means you can troop. For levels 2 (EIB) and 3 (Centurion) you apply here at the detachment. So yes you will need to “reapply” here but most pictures for EIB will generally be covered by what you used for basic. Have a look at the relevant CRL to see what exactly you need to show.

    ProCoPrint3D DLT-19

    How was the con? I saw Jon Campling (Death eater in HP Deathly Hallows) tweeting about it going up as he's in Eastbourne. It was a bit of a trek so I didn't go but it's not that bad if it's a good event.

    Rats first TK build (Anovos)

    The traps will more or less wipe off with some enamel thinners. I used humbrol. The hard paint to remove is the vocoder which really wasn't needed in hindsight.

    Glue removal

    Mine was a few spots around the circumference with a bit more to hold the ears down. Was just a case of slow and stead to get it apart. Don't be tempted to use CA remover, it will melt the ABS.

    Glue removal

    Most of mine came off easily. Just take your time and go slowly. In places we’re it’s stuck they used CA for mine so just working got it off. If you need one a blunt edge will also help.

    Went for £110,000 plus commission and VAT! I grabbed all the images from the post as reference. They always take nice clear photos of their lots. There's also a few other Star Wars items worth grabbing.

    I goofed and damaged my completed bucket

    Capped ABS is always going to show the repair as the acrylic cap is far whiter than the ABS will be. It may be less noticeable if you glue in the chunk. Alternatively TM sell spares.

    Anovos FOTK Armor Delivery Possibility

    I’m assuming they are still going with the shoulder hinge design as seen on the Tested videos. So yeah it’s going to need bridging, then filling and painting for clearance. I’m expecting a few grumpy new people when they find out that.

    Rogue One Stormtrooper CRL

    I think for level 3 the moulded on parts should be on the correct half of the shell. For level 2 "overlap" is probably close enough.

    Rogue One Stormtrooper CRL

    A bit late to the party but regarding the biceps, rear are overlap with the cover moulded into the outer half. Visible in this image Rogue One Stormtrooper Reference CE 2016 by Christopher Pearson, on Flickr Fronts not clear. Could be the strip is a separate piece or a part of the inner overlapping the outer. If I had to guess looking at closely at details in a back pack trooper, overlap as the seam behind the cover is far too close to the edge for butt to not snap as soon as it was flexed. Zoom in to max on the left bicep and you’ll see what I mean. Forearm looks to be overlap with a moulded in cover on the rear. Again my images of the front aren’t really helpful in showing the construction. Rogue One Stormtrooper Reference CE 2016 by Christopher Pearson, on Flickr

    Hi from the UK

    Its not that’s simple. It might. It depends on the case officer and if they agree if we count as a re-enactment group or theatre group. Some members have had items seized by customs and successfully had them released. Others failed and they were destroyed. Also making a E-11 the way we do is technically making a RIF which is a firearms offence, and if they decided to pinch you you’re in for a bad time. Fortunately none of us have been, mainly as we are responsible about their use in public. There’s behind the scenes stuff involved informing the police I believe.

    Hi from the UK

    Welcome to the FISD! In all honesty I found the blaster harder work than the armour as it involved more advanced techniques. I know my build was a bit more OTT in places but I’m not including the 3D modelling in that as it’s done now so anyone is able to use those parts if they wish. For the armour build it’s mostly just cutting and gluing with a bit if sanding and a tiny bit of painting. There’s tons of help available for both blasters and armour so if you do want to jump in you won’t be alone. If you do start down the armour route, and I recommend it if you’re able to, then head over to the UKG https://www.ukgarrison.co.uk/ and our armourer team will be able to give expert guidance. Of course there’s also a ton of assistance and help on here as well.

    ProCoPrint3D DLT-19

    Starting with "Stop whining Corporal." and then a paragraph moaning about the legion is not completely okay. You post contained helpful information but no one will read it if it starts like that and is written in a way that takes shots at the poster.

    ProCoPrint3D DLT-19

    @Lichtbringer Please mind your tone, if you wish to help please do so. If not then please refrain from unneeded curt replies. Paul you've put a lot of work in here and it really shows. It's a lovely blaster. Unfortunately there's just not a huge number around these parts who know much about the DLT-19. Maybe the dirty boys over at MEPD (http://forum.mepd.net/) may know more from an accuracy point as it's mostly sand troopers who carry the later weapons like the DLT.
