  1. Very interesting build, Daniel. I have no doubt that you will crush it. Happy building!
  2. Regarding the thickness of the ABS… AP is reporting in inches, which equates to 2mm. AP is thicker plastic which can be stronger but the details will be a bit softer than the 1.5mm kits.
  3. I’m just seeing this now. I was busy trooping today in a costume that was built with considerable help from Dan via whitearmor. His love of this hobby and limitless enthusiasm made him an invaluable member of this community… and a great person in general. My deepest condolences to his family. Buckets off to the tube stripe police officer.
  4. Looks good. Like Glen mentioned, you should be good for basic approval depending on your GML. The belt height might be an issue… again, depending on your GML. Good luck!
  5. Thomas! Good to see you on FISD. Yes, the first cut is terrifying. Lol. Let me know when you’re ready to start… I can go over my AP suit with you. It’s easier to do this in person.
  6. Congratulations, Bart! Great job. Now we need to find you an event to troop. Time to start harassing Giles. Lol.
  7. Very nice! The forehead bump and chin chip really show well.
  8. Is that a HDPE (or PP) pull? The details came out nicely. I have a couple HDPE buckets from the predecessor… very nice bucket.
  9. Welcome to the FISD. Keep in mind that the TK has a few different bits than the TD - if you are planning on a TD, I would build straight to a TD (but whatever floats your boat). That said, this forum is great for basic TK/TD building advice. TD specific questions can be asked over at MEPD.net as well - they are the dirt experts. lol. Congrats on your AP armour. It's a great kit.
  10. Errrr.... I know I'm old, but I haven't fully retired yet. https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=27237
  11. Trimming that ab bit will improve the look. I would concentrate on getting the strapping from the chest to ab and back to kidney sorted. And then tightening the cod to butt strapping (this might include trimming the cod a bit). That and the arm strapping (tightening up the biceps and shoulder pieces) as mentioned above. The armour will be large, but it should sit a lot better. The gap in the legs does look excessive, but depending on how that pic was taken you might get away with just padding.
  12. Yeah, your assessment is right. It is a bit large. For the arms and legs I would suggest trying foam padding. The strapping from the chest to ab is surprisingly loose - tightening these straps is easy. The mid section is big. It’s hard to tell from pictures, but I almost wonder if trimming and redoing the strapping/clam shell might be worth it.
