  1. The positioning looks pretty close. Trimming the bottom return edge will allow for easier adjustments when you heat it up. The trick that worked for me is to get it to fit as best you can by heating it up and shaping - then glue one side and let cure for about 48 hours (assuming E6000 is being used). Then grab a bunch of clamps and glue the other side... it will take some persuasion. Looking good!
  2. You can trim off more (a little towards the back and a bit more towards the front). Take a little bit at a time - a couple of mm can make the difference. Some of the screen used buckets had quite a bit shaved off the bottom, so you should have no issues.
  3. Welcome to the FISD, Wayne! Great introduction, by the way! That behind the scenes bit of the Mandalorian was brilliant - it's awesome when the film makers refer to the 501st members as "real" stormtroopers. There are a lot of great sources of info on this site - be it forum posts and other troopers. So take your time to do some research and then ask lots of questions. We are here to help.
  4. Welcome to the FISD, Robert. You've come to the right place for all things stormtrooper. The links the others have provided are a great place to start. There's a ton of info here, so ask plenty of questions if gets overwhelming. Good luck!
  5. Off to a great start! Congrats on your BBB day. AP is great armour.
  6. Hi Tyler and welcome to the FISD. Always good to see a fellow Canadian here. Be sure to reach out to your Garrison too.
  7. You shouldn't need to use elastic on the forearm - just size it so you can just get your hand through. I have narrow wrists too - the gloves help fill the space. The top edges are like that. You can leave it as is or trim them even once the coverstrips are on - check out the gallery for examples of screen used costumes. Yes, if you want to lose the return edge on the top of the forearms then go for it. As long as you are somewhat consistent with return edge, the amount of return edge is a personal preference or comfort thing (except for the wrist, there should be no return edge there). Return edge on the torso pieces are necessary for functional reasons (keep back and kidney from overlapping, using the bracket system if desired, etc). Minor scuffing is screen accurate. You should be fine. Post some pics when in doubt. Oh, try embedding the pics right into the post - it makes it easier for people to see and comment. Good luck, trooper! Oh, are you using CA glue? I highly recommend E-6000 instead.
  8. Most use the split rivets to hold the strapping in place. Some add fancy snap systems to it as well - the interior strapping is really up to the person as long as it looks accurate from the outside. That said, there are some tried and true methods that work very well. Check out the build section and go through some of the builds if you have not yet done so. The pinned threads are pretty good - check out Ukswrath's Anovos and AM build thread. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/80-anh-build-threads/ Good luck!
  9. here is the beginning of the tab and slot assembly on my build. Hopefully the link works. My build is a rambling mess . Lol https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/43437-wooks-first-build-anh-stunt-tk-ap/?do=findComment&comment=594738
  10. I think it looks good. It might be a tad large on you, but a bit of padding will fix that. Bending the ab or kidney anymore will likely cause further issues with the return edge around the top. That can be a pain in the a$$ to flatten out. Also, once you put on the arms, the mid section will not seem as large. The only issue you might have is the right seam on the ab to kidney - it will want to overlap when you tighten the belt. You can make a tab and slot connection on the inside to keep everything in place. I can send some pictures if you need. Keep up the great work!
  11. Welcome to the FISD, Dylan. There is a lot of info to go through and it can seem like a lot at first, but it will start making sense soon enough. Take your time - read some of the builds in the build section to see how others have tackled these kits. As mentioned above, ask lots of questions... when it comes to stormtroopers, there are no stupid questions here. Most of all, have fun - enjoy the journey.
  12. I think AP is a bit large around the mid section and the right forearm can be funny to fit. I had to do the same on my TD build to make it fit better and look more screen accurate on me. The sizing is probably great for an average body Shape.
