  1. You got this! Your already doing the right thing. Take lots of pictures and reach out for answers. Everyone on there first build had some type of issue. Heck I had forearms that didn't look like two even halves, messed my shins up trying to use a heat gun to form them and let alone shin gate and a bell gate lol Measure 3 times cut once. Cut less than you need, try it on and if you need to do a small amount more than let's do some more
  2. As always I do try to help out with your build when I see your posts on our Ohio Academy Facebook page. Due to how facebook algorithms work I sometimes don't see every post. You are more than welcome to message me anytime and I am happy to help out virtually the best I can. I had a lot of help virtually for my build all from the fine people here in our detachment as well as in our garrison as well as a few other facebook groups. For your calves, your muscles will flex as you walk so even if you are standing still you are only get a small piece of the picture with fitting them. Your cover strips will hide any imperfect cuts on the back. Just remember the back of the shins open up and close around your leg. Did you settle on how you want these to strap? Velcro, elastic with hooks? That may help you decided how much room to give yourself on your cuts.
  3. Congrats! It was my pleasure answering all your questions through Facebook Messenger on getting your build together! I look forward to getting some pictures together!
  4. from reference pics there are some with shorter brow trim than others. If you are happy with a shorter brow trim then keep going. if you want it to touch the back of the traps replace it. I think you can tilt the face a bit more forward so the tube vents line up a bit better with the back shell
  5. Welcome to the party from one WTFer to another future TK!
  6. Following your build with great interest!
  7. your def right in triming from the bottom! I would start there and once you have your thighs in place you can confirm if you need the shins to come down more.
  8. great work on the build! My WTF kit have not had many issues with the shoulders straps (I think I just used more glue) but love your innovative approach
  9. Hi Jeff! I saw your avatar and couldn't help but comment. That page in the Star Wars Visual Dictionary was my favorite growing up. I spent HOURS and DAYS pouring over it, reading and rereading. I even mentioned it in my New Member Introduction post. I'm a recent recruit and just beginning my first build.

     

    Anyway, cool photo. =)

      Thank you Caleb!  Welcome to the FISD as well!  Looking forward to following your build thread as well!  As always if you have any questions feel free to reach out to myself or anyone else here on the FISD!  We are all eager to help and excited to have new troopers!

  10. you will want to move the ears back just a tad. The ear screws will line up with the back of the trap. Great work so far!
  11. sure thing, the smaller fan size is 35mm x 35mm x 10mm
  12. Welcome Sir! Love to see another WTF build! Looking good so far. Ask lots of questions we are always happy to help!
  13. I'm based in the US, good old Ohio I also have a smaller fan size option as well.
