  1. I'll start by saying that I haven't started a R1 build, but it's on my wish list. I found netting fabric similar to what you pictured in my local JoAnn's. If I remember correctly it only needed three layers to make it opaque. Just do a search for "nylon net."
  2. Let's see - fix the belt boxes, repaint the helmet, assemble and paint the blaster ... hmmm, it's possible ... Or assemble my TFA FOTK ... and get it approved in a timely fashion ... Maybe I'll try for EIB #1001
  3. Hello from Western New York! Yours will be the first R1TK in the Garrison, so for the Rogue One specific tips this is the best place to look. I'll start off with two things - the R1TK doesn't have a holster, so you don't have to worry about that, and there may be some surplus helmet pads available where you are.
  4. Congratulations!
  5. 4. Regal Henrietta - The Rise of Skywalker Premiere; 20 December 2019 Second from the right: We had 300 Boy Scouts come through that night: And made the local cable news: https://spectrumlocalnews.com/nys/rochester/community/2019/12/21/star-wars-franchise-has-created-generations-of-fans?cid=share_fb&fbclid=IwAR1aWdurllaey0qYXB_PIwCjtzlsZVM7QXTdHY8r5PKqVI7P4MExZlzSSYg#
  6. Anyone else notice that the shoulders, forearms, and shins are different between the top and bottom pictures?
  7. 3. Rochester Maker Faire; 23 November 2019 Why we don't use action figures as the sole visual reference: Let's see - bells and biceps are on the wrong arms (didn't notice until I kitted down), one bicep rotated forwards, other bicep rotated backwards, "maker" band definitely not CRL Patrolling the convention center:
  8. The helmet and purpose made me think FO Purgetroopers.
  9. This was just posted on our garrison's boards: <edit to remove personal details> If an admin could take a look and let him know what's going on, it would be appreciated.
  10. Just referencing the clip above, and nothing else in the rest of the show - These Stormtroopers appear to be wearing R1TK style armor. I personally can't tell if the ear rank bars, traps, and tears are OTTK or R1TK, but Take a look at 0:27, 0:32-0:34, and 0:56-0:58 - I think those tube stripes are cut out, but it could just be the lighting. Or maybe I just want them to be cut out, because I feel that R1 buckets should be worn with R1 armor.
  11. Great news! I look forward to seeing it in person. But photos first.
  12. Nice to know that I’m not the only who thinks that.
  13. The detailing is lacking on this last one - just including it for completeness:
  14. AM is the actual make - you can reach them at troopersupplies@hotmail.com. The couple of times that I've contacted them, they've responded in less than a day.
