    Konichi Wa! From Osaka Japan

    Welcome to the FISD. Good choice on your armour. As you’re living in Japan, they will be your Garrison. It’s always a good move to get in touch early as they will be able to help you with any locally specific items.

    I've pressed a button to validate his email, can you ask him to try his old password again.

    Requesting help for TJAY/ Tino -locked out

    There was a couple of people who had issues when the sever was first moved. I seem to recall that after a couple of attempts they were able to reset their password and get in. If not it will be something for the web team I expect.

    I’ve not been getting emails, but then I’m not sure I was before either. Tapatalk is sending me notifications which should mean I have them enabled. On my Garrison forum get get both an email and a notification in tapatalk.

    Back plate issues anovos kit

    I'm 5 10/11 ish and the back fits about right, you may have a longer torso but it still doesn't look right. Hard to tell but you may well have the butt plate too low. I started by attaching the kidney to the ab plate, then added the but plate. I then attached the chest to the back plate. This means you have a top half and a bottom half that you can put into place and see exactly where your gaps are if any. Don't be afraid to shove the butt/code up as far as it will go, you sort of need to to align everything.

    Dave Gilmore . RWA 2mm Capped ANH STUNT wip ( maidstone )

    Looking really good trooper! Ross did a great job on those bigger parts. They still keep the proportions looking right, especially vs shimming.

    Bubble lenses, are they worth the effort ?

    As Glen says unless you're doing a Hero or ROTJ (or possibly a TIE) then bubble lenses aren't what you want. I am aware of people making them in the UK. Burkbench designs (former owner of Imperial Supply Depot) does some, and I would also assume that TM and CFO do them for their ROTJ kits.

    Definitely feels speedier, both on the website and when using Tapatalk.

    Tube stripes - ANH Stunt - Dave M

    I did a full repaint on my Anovos helmet when I first got it over 2 years ago. I was probably only the 2nd person to do more than a frown touch up. Full details are in my build thread linked in my signature but if you have any questions on how to remove the original paint and decals feel free to ask me.

    Finally cleared! But having forum probs

    Just for reference: there’s a backlog for the 501st profile images at the moment. The GWL is working on it but it’s going to take a while.

    CableGuy's DoopyDoos (feat. T-Jay kit) ANH E-11 WIP

    On mine I used a drill to remove the bulk and then cleaned up with a small cylinder diamond bit.

    Looks like it has now been resolved, I'm able to navigate the forums properly now.

    Looks like they did indeed fix it, I've tried about 3-4 all working as expected.

    Pretty much, the web team are aware and are working on getting it fixed.

    I seem to recall there was a bit of a faff to get it working after the forum upgrade last year, maybe they can remember what they did then?

    Ab button colour?

    Welcome back mark, I have a feeling you were one of my first contacts in the UKG. Yeah that chart is now the standard, though gloss or satin black seems to be fine either way. I suppose I could add the gloss that but the real reason I did the new chart was to remove the old darker blues on the old bill grams as that was confusing people.
