    Possible Kittel belt website compromise

    This could be part of the issue: It's not an encrypted connection to the site. Everything you sent there went out over the internet in plain. I'm not saying it was using this site that cause the charges, but I can tell you there's no way I'd be sending payment over an unsecured connection.

    How to delete attachments?

    I’m on my iPad so it may be a shade different on a real computer, but: top menu > account > my attachments from there you can delete any you want to.

    Anovos FOTK Armor Delivery Possibility

    I suspect the 501st probably doesn't even cover 50% of orders. You can't always assume that we (the 501st or similar groups for other costumes) are the primary market for stuff like this. They are making a product for a market that doesn't want to have to muck about with Bondo and paint so they can look cool 2-3 times a year at costume parties/Halloween and conventions.

    This Cannot Be Real

    Fair enough, that I did not know. I retract item 4

    This Cannot Be Real

    Red flag 1: ebay Red flag 2: multiples of multiple parts in at least 2 different whites screams recast. I also suspect the lighter colour parts are HIPS just from the colour. Problem the third: parts are already made using who knows what glue something 4: it’s trimmed, how well?

    Mixing Armors

    This is my Anovos forearm in an RWA bicep. IMO close enough for government work, especially in natural light. RWA ABS (flash) by Christopher Pearson, on Flickr RWA ABS (indoor shade) by Christopher Pearson, on Flickr TM is also pretty close (disclosure he sent me those hand guards purely to do the colour comparison, I still have them if you want more photos) Troopermaster ABS (direct sun) by Christopher Pearson, on Flickr Troopermaster ABS (Indoor shade light) by Christopher Pearson, on Flickr The TM is probably a touch closer, but you do need to remember the white will change for each batch and also how long your armour has been in the sun.

    Hi from the uk

    Hi, welcome to the FISD! If you’re interested in becoming a Stormtrooper the your in the right place. I’d also advise you head over to the UK Garrison as well and sign up there too. We have a mentor program which will guide you to a clearable suit. There’s a few little bits the UK is a bit different for process wise so it pays to be there from the start. Chris.

    Backstage Props FOTK preorder

    I saw them post about a week ago of some pictures of some rough blocks I assume were to be machined. https://www.facebook.com/BackStageProps/photos/a.1008718475923599/1974083752720395/?type=3&theater Seems to suggest they found a CNC to use?

    John did a final run of 100 RomFx last year. I think there are still some left but I couldn’t tell you how many.

    TK UK Armour?

    Have you signed up over at the UK Garrison? http://ukgarrison.co.uk/forum Once you have an account post a Work In Progress (WIP) in the armoury section and the armoury team will guide you to a clearable costume. They are really good at what they do and have all build and seen loads of different builds so will know exactly what needs doing.

    A Friend Can’t Create a New Account

    It's not so much to we accept icloud as does iCloud accept us. I'm not on the web team so not privy to how the emails stuff is setup but if the email isn't just perfect, email providers may thing it's spam and so just not deliver them.

    Source for Snaps

    I 100% recommend getting the special pliers for the snaps of you can. Makes doing a snap a 5 second job.

    Helmet to armor wiring connectors?

    The only wire I run is for my head set but I wear that on my head, not attached to the helmet, with the wire running up the neck seal. I also have a fan system mounted inside the helmet but the battery is mounted inside the front between the mic tips. It's just a case of putting the helmet on, no wires to mess with.

    Who made this helmet?

    Could be RS but the forehead looks too smooth, might just be the lighting though.

    Is this glue acceptable?

    Where about's are you? We may be able to guide you a bit better if we know where in the world you are.

    A Friend Can’t Create a New Account

    I take it he's not receiving the confirmation emails? For some reason emails are starting to get caught in spam filters. There's a couple of options: they can explicitly white list @whitearmor.net or pm me with the user name and email they used and I can go look in the back end. For what it's worth it's probably a good idea to white list whitearmor anyway.

    Is this glue acceptable?

    I can't recommend that for a first build. It will work, but if you get it it wrong at all you'll need to order new parts. It works by melting the plastic so when they dry out again they are literally fused into 1 single piece. It's incredibly strong, but also incredibly unforgiving.

    Buying my first suit (Needing some advice)

    I'd say I spent maybe £50 on tools at most, and that was mostly for specialist bits. Okay I already had basic stuff but you can build a whole TK with a Stanley knife, metal ruler, lexan scissors, some cheap files, a drill and sand paper. I often see these huge lists of tools you "need", and you really don't. Okay it might take a little longer but you're also far less likely to make a huge mistake with a pair of lexan scissors than with a dremel.
