    Could *my height* be a distraction???

    Welcome JC to the FISD!! If you haven done so I would start by reading this section here! You’ll find just about everything you think of when it comes to getting started and your armor needs! Speaking of armor needs our fellow Trooper and Deployment Office justjoseph63 has put together a great and very useful checklist of what you’ll need other then that amazing white shiny stuff. I found that personally it came in extremely helpful for my build. Once that has been all decided upon then I would dive into our EIB / Centurion sections and find out which a little extra effort you can get on screen accuracy. Hope that helps point you in the right direction, I know its a ton of information and a good size financial commitment so if any other questions come up feel free to ask. Its why we’re here “ Troopers helping Troopers” We've all had that feeling of "what have I gotten myself into" before the first cut but trust me when I tell you, after the fist cut you realize its not that bad. Follow the build threads in the EIB/Centurion sections and also read and re-read ukswraths build threads as he really breaks it down with a ton of photos and descriptions. I know I treated them like an instruction manual and to this day refer to them to confirm an answer to a question. Best of luck in your journey.
  5. Like gmrodes has stated, the belt box alignment is off a bit and that could just be an adjustment after suiting up and some foam to keep the sniper knee from going under your thigh. and Adjust your strapping on your thighs to make them as close in height as you can.

    Cool model, I like the bearded look! Some well placed supports will give him a nice clean shave!

    Welcome to the FISD Matt. I can tell you that Kevin make a great kit (I've built one of his Shoretrooper kits and helped a fellow trooper on a FOTK. It is by far the most complicated of the kits Stormtrooper kits to build but if you've built a R2 unit then you should be ok. Best of luck with your build and any questions ask away!
  8. Just a little Seriously, welcome to FISD. You've come to the right place to start your research in pursuing the dream to wear the armor that we all have a passion for.
