  1. Hi and welcome to the FISD. Both are good choices. RS might be more screen accurate but AP gives you a bit more room in some of the more critical parts (i.e. around the gut area). The cost and shipping times will likely play a part in the decision. I've built both a TK and TD from a AP kit and I have no complaints - although I had to source a few TD specific parts from other vendors. As much as I love my AP kits, I would lean to RS if you want a really accurate TD build. I think the links Glen provided above gives a bit more detail on the differences. Either way, you'll be happy.
  2. This is what I use. I've displayed a few different trooper costumes on it. The butt plate won't sit perfect because of the stand, but it is not noticeable when on display. https://store.voicebooster.com/male-mannequin-flexible-posable-full-size-in-black/
  3. AP is a solid choice and Mark does a good job with the builds. The kit should fit you fine. I’m not sure if Mark will trim for your exact size. Some parts may be a bit long - but these can be easily trimmed down. You might find the midsection (ab, butt, and kidney parts) to be a bit large, but you can always add padding to these pieces.
  4. Welcome and congrats on the purchase!
  5. Welcome back! It's definitely worth giving another go! I don't know what I would have done to decompress from the gong show of the last 2 years if I didn't have this hobby to keep me sane. The troops are somewhat limited currently - but there is still reward in the kit-building part of the hobby. Check out the "getting started" section for some general reading - see what's changed over the years. Finding and building a kit is very straight forward thanks to the info on this forum. Good luck and Happy New Year!
  6. I get the same thing for those posts as well - I noticed they are both by Pandatrooper. Not sure if something happened to the posts. Some of the general builds (see ukwraths Anovos build) cover these more specific topics as well, assuming you can get access to them. Don't worry about asking questions - there is so much info buried on this forum that we are very used to people asking. In fact, it is kind of the norm. The people on the other forums are jerks (just kidding).
  7. Most of us build so that the bicep and forearm line up. But yes, many examples from ANH show the forearm rotated out. @CableGuy had a discussion about this on his FB page - you might have seen the reference there. Screen accurate or not, GMLs may want to see the strips lined up. My two cents.
  8. Awesome luck! Welcome to the FISD. I’ll probably see you over at MEPD as well.
  9. Boba looks great. You’ll have no issues with the TK. The resources here are incredible and the response to questions is typically quick and meaningful.
  10. Check out the link below. This should give you a good start. There are threads about buying kits and general building tips. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/38-getting-started-read-this-first/
  11. For the belt, I changed up the measurements a bit - and it seemed to work well with the AP kit. Take a look at the below post. Good luck.
  12. Welcome to the FISD. Wow, my hands are getting sore and cramped just looking at the pictures (I hate sanding). lol. Nice work!
  13. Welcome to the FISD, John. You are absolutely in the right place. Take some time to read through the resources and familiarize yourself with the forum. The link provided above is a great start. And, of course, feel free to ask questions. Good luck with your build!
  14. Welcome to the FISD! Sounds like you are off to a good start. Good luck.
  15. Welcome to the FISD. The buckets look great!
  16. Welcome to the FISD. Ah, the Death Star play set - Santa must have delivered a bunch of those back in the day...
  17. Welcome back! Three printers - I guess you went all in on the printing. lol. I printed a Mandalorian kit for my son. Getting the beskar look was a learning curve, but there seems to be a lot of info out there nowadays for it. Have fun with it!
  18. The new Anovos. When all else fails... rebrand. lol. Hopefully this goes better.
