  1. Hello there! As others have already given great advice before me I will merely mention that the best thing to help me was build a thread on the WIP pages so I could show my progress and get input from other troopers. You’ll find lots of help here that is both constructive and positive!
  2. Hi Sebastian, Welcome. With your armor kit I’d highly recommend starting a build thread on the forums so you can post your build progress and get valuable input from us as you build.
  3. Hi there! And welcome to the FISD.
  4. Hi there and welcome! I found the FOTK isn’t too rough to build. It’s a little more than an OTTK like some have said, but all armor takes time and work. That being said, the bigger challenge right now is availability of kit suppliers for the FOTK. I’d highly recommend with FOTK and any kit you want to go with to check out the approved vetted vendors list Found here We are here to support you as well!
  5. I know of two vendors that are more recommended than others. One is Jimmiroquai and the other is KB props. Both you could find on Facebook Jimmiroquai is Jim Tripon. That’s where my armor came from. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Welcome! Your best resources to start will be found here https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/38-getting-started-read-this-first/ Definitely take your time in researching vendors. These pages will help: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/19329-where-what-and-whom-to-avoid-when-buying/ It’s definitely worth reasoning where to start and which vendors would best help out. From there you can check out many build threads that exist and start your own so the members of the First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment can assist you along your way! Finally there are a few different FOTKs with the main ones in difference being the Force Awakens (TFA) and the Last Jedi (TLJ) there are some minor differences, but they do matter, so based on which one you want you’ll want to plan based on the CRLs TFA - https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_-_First_Order TLJ - https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_TLJ There also the executioner variant on the crls if that’s where you are going as well. Edit - I just reread you wanted to do TFA, so fantastic! Glad to see more FOs. Anywho, welcome again and we are glad to assist you in your build process!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Currently there is no CRL for the Mandolorian. That’s something that once it is made then it would be something that could be approved and an armor that would be troopable. That being said for personal costuming and nothing 501st you could easily build a Mandolorian costume and then when the CRLs come around make the necessary adjustments to match them. I plan on waiting for an official CRL though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. It’s all business at this point. Vendors that don’t meet expectations will lose and sadly fail. Those that do will gain what the others lost. I don’t want vendors to not succeed, but at the same time services need to be provided and met in a business. I wish there were more FOTK vendors who were solid out there. This kit seems to be the most difficult to meet demand.
  9. Welcome and congrats! Very cool picture too! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Welcome! For Centurion you’ll need rubber gaskets, is highly recommend getting some fabric ones for general wear though because they will be more breathable, but it’s all up to you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I think that’s great to have another FOTK nonetheless. When I finished I think there were only 17 officially approved, so it’s cool you were able to get approved and we have another in the legion!
  12. That’s for sure. I mean I have fiberglass armor and even I still have maintenance I need to do It’s just part of the thing overall.
  13. I’d be more tempted to pro paint it, however I keep seeing there’s some stress areas that crack and fear that pro painting still won’t fix those spots which I hate. I’m sure there will come a day where I retire this armor and then display it and replace it, but for now I will keep updating and fixing. I’ve got things ready to go fix wise and adjustments too. Now just need to paint and prepare for IX.
