Hey Smoke! I live right next to Culver in Baldwin Hills area. I've got a workshop, too, if you ever want to bash on armor together. I went to the armor building party at Brea Olinda high school this weekend, and learned a ton, but didn't have the right stuff with me to make too much progress on my kit. I'm sure I'll see you trooping soon!
Like an awful lot of new troopers, I've got an Anovos ANH tk kit that I'm in the process of building. I'm looking forward to (hopefully!) getting 501st approved and joining the Legion at trooping events. I also happen to work at Disney Consumer Products, so one of my other big goals is to display my armor on a mannequin in my office, to make all the other Star Wars nerds I work with jealous! I'm excited to join your august company, and will probably have a million questions!
