  1. Many thanks. I'll get that done. My plan is to shorten or adjust the shoulder elastics to bring them in, and I'll adjust the chest plate as well. Sent from my iPhone, like a boss
  2. So, these are initial pictures of the suit. Excuse the lack of boots and neck brace. Likewise excuse the helmet not being done up, this is just an initial "Here's the armour, what do I need to do to tighten it up/trim it?" I see the shoulder straps will need pushing back into place.
  3. Ah it's not a build, it's a complete kit. I felt, given my history with projects, that for my first suit, where I didn't have a blueprint in my hands to work from, it's best to buy one. That being said, when I get my second suit, I'll put that together myself. Sent from my iPhone, like a boss
  4. Okay so my armour arrived today, and after waking up and putting myself back together, I couldn't be happier. I haven't included any pictures yet because I haven't had time to get together with a shootist, and also because some of the stuff hasn't arrived yet. I have to admit, when I looked in the mirror and saw the armour staring back, the part of me that will always be seven did jump up and down and squeal a little in excitement. For the rest, there was just a feeling of oh-my-god it's here... Anyway, I'll be posting some pictures up here shortly, once I've had time to get in front of a mirror and properly fit the stuff. All I'm waiting for now is boots, neck seal and vox unit and I'll be hot to trot.
  5. I was more thinking the fact that the mic tips and the vocoder haven't had anything done to them, and the fact that we don't actually see the rest of the armour. I just thought I'd post it for those who wanted a laugh Sent from my iPhone, like a boss

  7. Happy star-wars day. Any of you gents doing anything fun to celebrate?
  8. Very nice set of armour. I'm considering getting a set of RS myself. What's the quality like on their blaster? Also, does it come trimmed to size? Sent from my iPhone, like a boss
  9. Hi, I'm Trooper-Five, T5, or whatever else you wish to call me. There's not much that's interesting to tell, born and raised in Hampshire and I work in the security industry, I've spent most of the last five years trolling up and down the south coast to cover this or that vacant slot. I'd be lying if I said I was a die hard Star-Wars fan, but I am a committed sci-fi enthusiast, and I've always enjoyed the thought of cosplaying or dressing up. I joined here to be part of a community of similar sci-fi enthusiasts and hobbyists. I've always had a passion for detail and getting things right, and I look forward to developing more of an interest in the franchise. Anyway, I'm currently in the process of applying to join the UK garrison and I thought I'd come here to ask some questions, get feedback and generally try and do some research prior to buying what I thought was a good suit but turned out to be a lemon in disguise. That would generate a lot of sour feeling on my part. Ha ha, ha... I'll get my coat.
