  1. Hello Wayne! Awesome introduction! You have some great experiences. Nurses rock! I’m also a nurse myself. You’ll find that there’s a handful of us healthcare professionals out here as servants of the Empire. Justin Reed is a great resource and he will definitely guide you on your way to joining the 501st. I’m a member of the Inland Empire squad and we can’t wait to see you trooping alongside with us soon. When you get approved, there’s a Facebook group called the 822nd Imperial Medical corps which is a group for 501st medical professionals. Don’t hesitate to reach out for any help. Have you joined the Imperial recruits page for the socal garrison on Facebook? Everyone is helpful especially here on FISD which focuses on the classic and current stormtrooper armor. Plenty of valuable information on the forums. Good luck and we hope to see you out trooping real soon! -Niño R. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I have MTK armor and I love it! He is the only vetted seller from EBay. Mike Appling from Trooperbay runs MTK armor. He’s based out in San Diego CA with the Imperial Sands Garrison. His armor is top notch and of high quality. Thicker armor than Anovos. I highly recommend him. There are a few troopers here who have MTK as well. You can follow him on IG or Facebook to see his work. I don’t understand why he is not part of the vetted seller list on FISD. You’re in good hands with MTK. Good luck!

  3. Wow that’s amazing! Just finished watching this. Way to go! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Fantastic progress! Test fit looks really sharp so far! Looking forward to seeing completed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I was a victim of DP as well. Lots of false promises. I was promised a 6 week turn around. DP was quick to take the money but failed to deliver. After 6 months, I received a poorly made FOTK vest which was really dirty and a poorly made SE-44c blaster with lots of missing pieces and bits. I regretted from ordering from him and he promised me a refund, but I never received it. I'm shocked to find out people like me received the same feedback as well. It's unfortunate to know things like this happen in our community.
  6. This was fun to watch! Never thought of attaching the TD onto the belt before donning the suit. Impressive job!
  7. Jimmi kits have a seamless back and yoke. This is his v5 Back/Yoke Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Congrats on the Jimmi v5 kit! I have the same setup you have and his armor is amazing! His fiberglass material is very strong and those cracks are easily fixed. I’m 5’4” so you should not have any problem scaling the armor to your size. Be prepared to sand and fill a whole lot. The more time spent on prepping, the better the end result! Good luck and don’t hesitate to reach out for any help or advice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Looks like a good fit for the abdomen and yoke. What are you going to use to cover up the seam on the sides?
  10. Looking great so far! You can use some magic eraser to get rid of that overspray on your helmet. Buffs it out pretty quick. Keep up the great work!
  11. Looking great! Glad to see another Heavy in socal. This is awesome! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I have MTK too. I love it! No complaints. Thicker armor compared to Anovos. Plus you can get individual replacement parts easily. You will be extremely satisfied with the armor. He’s the only vetted EBay armorer you can safely purchase. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Congrats! Looking superb! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
