  1. Hi Jack, I don't know of anyone off the top of my head but there's a fair few members down Bristol way who may well be able to help you if needed. Head over to the UKG and ask there. If you've not done so you will need to to create your WIP thread there for clearance anyway. Good luck trooper. Chris.
  2. That link is in the members only area I am afraid. As for The shed/DA if you like them there is no reason to go with them. Lots of happy troopers in that kit all over Europe.
  3. As Mathias has said, he may have made them but a lot of the claims and information on his site are just plain fabrication. There's plenty on this subject if you search.
  4. Whilst I’m not trooping the Sunday I’ll be about in the morning as joe public so I might well see you.
  5. Woo I’m image #3! And I’m about as organised as you are, I’ve not done mine for this troop yet either.
  6. Just to back up what others have said, no. The "completed photo" is a computer render, the photos look to be screen shots from another listing, and there's a few other issues I can see that would make clearance problematic. At best this is a poor quality recast. Your best bet is to read through these threads and then if you have any specific questions we can help you more then https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/11538-the-various-types-of-armor-and-where-to-find-them/ https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/19329-where-what-and-whom-to-avoid-when-buying/
  7. Scammers like this make their money by people buying the rubbish. By even buying it even if you will refund it you’re helping them win. These scams are popping up a lot at the moment. A surprisingly large number people always say “well it’s worth a go” or “I wonder what you do get”. It’s obviously worth their while. The only winning move move is not to play.
  8. That’s going to be a scam site. There’s a lot of them about at the moment.
  9. https://blog.flickr.net/en/2018/11/01/changing-flickr-free-accounts-1000-photos/?utm_campaign=flickr-lookingahead&utm_source=Flickr&utm_medium=email&utm_content=1000photos Flickr are changing their free tier to limit it to 1000 images. Their reasoning is 100% fair but this may leave some of us in a pickle, I am affected with 1474 images, 474 of which will go away if I don't upgrade. Pricing is reasonable, at least this year, if you are affected and want to upgrade so it's not like the blackmail situation of Photobucket. Just a sort of heads up for anyone else that will be affected, and don't be surprised if some images start going away in Jan next year.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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!
  19. Really looking forwards to seeing this progress. You look to be doing really well so far!
  20. The tube stripes on mine were removed using Humbrol enamel thinners. They pretty much just wiped off!
  21. Hi Theo, Welcome to the FISD. If you're in the UK make sure to check out the UK Garrison (http://www.ukgarrison.co.uk/join-us/). There are a lot of folk there that will be more than happy to help and guide you on your journey. Chris.
  22. 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.
  23. Yeah that's on the wrong side. The holster for ANH sits on your left hip.
