  1. Congratulations Be sure to request Trooper status https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/16-501st-trooper-status-requests-include-link-to-your-501st-profile-in-your-request/
  2. Not to start a discussion but, Hamil was closer to 5’7 and that according to himself. At 5’9 there wouldn’t be any need for that extra trimming they did on both the chest and back piece.
  3. Plastic weld works really well in bonding coverstrips on armor, pretty much all my suits are built that way and years in are solid as a rock
  4. From the looks of things it doesen’t seem you need to trim for hight. Good to hear you have found Christine’s thread already, I will ”ping her” for you @Cricket
  5. Oh! Also, start your own build-thread and help will be plenty
  6. Hi Can’t answer for were the links you mention take you but…all you really need to build your own kit are the many builds found here https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/80-anh-build-threads/

  8. Amen to that! Come 2022 we actually might have a First order battle group worthy of the name here on the forum
  9. Wasn’t the Anovos-helmets priced pretty much at the $600-700 mark as well? Armor-wise I’m pretty sure it will be the $1000 range it was before. Anyway, all I’m really bothered with is us getting our armor we are owed
  10. I would leave it alone unless you really and I mean really really want to go full-accuracy, given if the discrepencies you pointed out are correct. I would send my GML pics of the helmet just to be sure and ask but I doubt it will be denied approval or even L2/L3 (Ask the DO:s about that) Good luck with the build
  11. I would do both, some original armor below to help you decide
  12. Like I said, every day count as one Troop, as his GML I should know
  13. Every day count as one Troop And..it was great to finally meet you in person We do look great don’t we
  14. You could try to remove a little more and sand it really smooth
  15. I would recommend using a hosting site like Imgur, it let’s you upload most if not all sizes
  16. Best way is to do what you are doing, asking questions. For Centurion I would go over the latest submissions and study the D.Os comments. Edit: And..In case you might wonder ”who is this guy..does he even know what he’s talking about” I mean I could be just a random guy sharing his opinions I’m previously a D.O here and currently GML for my Garrison.
  17. Using minimal ”pressing force” and taking breaks to avoid the rivet getting too hot. Not sure what you mean by ”when it comes to the ears”? Ears are mounted with screws but I might be stupid and not getting it...
  18. Just a heads up, using just one photo of one Prop isn’t the best approach for 501st approval as the originals had all kinds of quirks that are not approvable
  19. If it were me I would reposition the face plate. As you have it now, you can see were the original hole for the rivet is and that is a good indicator for some tweeking. The ear will probably cover it but I would still twist it a tad to the left . I would also even out the spacing for the brow trim and ones you do I don’t think it will appear short. Note that nothing I said is mandatory for approval, just worth mention for apparence. Your helmet is fine as is. Some original helmets for reference. (My computer is down so I can’t make any drawings for you).
  20. Why not bring your kit to Comic Con and we can give you a hand there I’ll be there Friday and sunday.
