  1. You can never have too many magnets or clamps. Lee Valley has rare earth magnets. The quest design E-11 is fine - I added a spring to the action and painted a few parts to look metallic. I use it all the time for trooping - it feels a lot more durable than my 3D printed one. There are separate threads for blaster builds but I've got into the habit of just including them in my armour builds.
  2. Welcome to the FISD! Looking forward to the pics of the armour! And yes, it is awesome being a stormtrooper!
  3. Hi Andrew and congrats on making the best decision of your life. As mentioned above - are you going for Hero or Stunt? You will need to make some modifications to the helmet if you are going for Hero. Mark does indeed include a green lens in his kit (flat - stunt version). Although screen accurate, I find that lens a bit too transparent - people can see your eyes in pictures. I opted for a darker lens as provided by Mike at Trooperbay.com. Any dark green welding lens would work too - unless you are going for Hero, then you need to source curved lenses. The AP kit does include a lot of the little extras (split rivets, any visible snaps, frown mesh, screws for the helmet and ears, etc). As for a neck seal, I used Geeky Pink (Teresa or "Soulart" here on the forums). You'll want to get more magnets. Good luck on the build!
  4. Welcome to the FISD! Good luck on your build!
  5. No worries with AP. I have purchased both a trimmed and untrimmed kit from AP in the past. Mark does a very good job on the trimming. If you are a bit larger in the arms I would mention that to Mark when ordering. Oh, and welcome to the FISD!
  6. I just clued in that you are a Badlander! Welcome to the FISD, Sal!
  7. Happy belated BBB day and good luck on your build! Space pack? Cool. Check with RWA or CrookKnight for packs. I'm sure there are other options, but those are two that come to mind.
  8. Welcome to the FISD. As mentioned, get your undersuit (there are many options on Amazon) and take it one piece at a time. I started with the arms. I found the thighs to be one of the trickier parts to size. Unless you really want return edges on all your pieces - you don't need to recreate them on most parts. The ankle and wrists should not have them (wrist return edge is not passable at higher levels), the top of the thighs are more comfortable without them, and the elbow can be more comfortable without them as well. Good luck on your build!
  9. Great work on the helmet. No one can dock you points for effort. Keep it up!
  10. Hahaha. This happens all the time to me. I did it on my very first troop - and I did it on my most recent troop.
  11. Nice! The scope looks better. You could tone down the brass colour on the hengstler a bit. I'm not entirely sure, but I think the back half of the counter wasn't the same metal used for the front half - in fact, it might have been plastic. Best to have one of our e-ll experts chime in. Looks like you may have already seen this, but just in case here it is anyways...
  12. Welcome to the FISD! I see you already started a build thread so my token bit of welcome-advice is already useless. Good luck on the build!
  13. Hi Chirs. Congrats on getting to the build! You already got some feedback on the helmet and other items. Keep in mind that these modifications are much easier than it sounds. Check out the build thread section if not done so already - there are some very detailed Anovos builds in there (see ukswrath's build). If you are feeling stuck - let us know. The information here can seem pretty daunting so don't be afraid to ask any question. Take your time and enjoy the ride. Good luck!
