  1. Newly approved member of Titan Garrison. TK ID 53175. I am 42 years old and have been wanting to build a stormtrooper armor set for many years. When I finally pulled the trigger on purchasing armor, my family thought I had lost my mind. 6 months later here I am. Ready to troop!!! Thanks to everyone here who offered advice and help. This is an ATA ANH Stunt build. I should have chosen a less expensive hobby!! I want to do another build.... You don't know me, I can stop whenever I want. LOL I think I'm addicted. This photo added from a post on FISD.

    emtramone presenting for review

    The forearms are glued together with zap a gap. not sure I could trim them down. I will take those suggestions and fix them. Any more insights are welcome.
  6. This is my first build. ATA kit ANH stunt. Would post in pre approval, but not ready for that as this is not 100% complete. I am still missing the boots and the holster. Hope to have both those elements in the next few weeks. I will be dying my own boots and purchasing the holster in about two weeks. Here is what I have so far. Advice, pointers and otherwise help in getting this build done, are appreciated. Things I noticed from my pics. Knee ammo belt not in place. Right bicep too high Left shoulder bell too much gap. OK here you go!

    Shoes alternative

    I found these shoes and am wondering if they will work if painted white, for my TK build? They were free so I can't pass them up. Thoughts? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Short legs

    I have my thighs and calves done but they are too long. Can I cut down the tops of the thighs? They have a bit of a return edge that will be gone of I trim the tops down. Is that bad? I will trim the calves to, but they don't have a curved edge on the bottom. No problem there. Here is the top of one of my thighs. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Back Plate Isssue

    My back plate has curved corners. Is this normal? In all my refrence pics the corners are flat and it fits fine against the kidney plate. Mine does not as the corners are bent. they over lap onto the kidney plate. Can someone answer if I need to try to form these or if its normal? This os the gap that's left after strapping it to the kiney plate. It then wants to hang over the Kidney plate after I let go.

    Boots brainstorming

    Planning on doing the same. Please post if you find a place for boots. I do have a shoe maker near me who said if he had the longer molds, he would produce them. His shoes fit every need except that they are to short at the ankle.
  14. Looking at a bucket build of a TLJ trooper. Any recommended sources would be helpful. Love the look, but I want to Get a bucket just for now. Still waiting on my ATA armor and wanting something else to build, till then if it's reasonably priced. Any recommendations Please.

    TLJ Armor sources

    Just talked to 850. They don't have TLJ helmet or armor. I will look at the other recommendations. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    No. After all the advice I got, it was enough to convince him. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Perfect that's what I was thinking. It looks like they cast it off their own armor. It's styrene at about 1.5 mm thick.
  19. Ok so I started a build post, but I put it in the wrong topic so I will continue here. Just started with the eyes and wanting to know opinions so far.
  20. And Now the finished product. No lines in the tears or traps though. I will probably finish them up during my armor build. I will post a build on that in four months when it arrives. ATA all the way for this first build project. And if anyone knows if there is a right and wrong amount of stripes in the tears and rear traps, that would be super helpful or where I can get some templates. Suggestions welcome as always.
  21. So here are the finished painting except for the ears. Is there a CRL for the amount of vent stripes. I have to do the tube stripes too, but not till I'm done with the ears. I want to cut the vents out for ventilation instead of painting them. Is this going to be an issue with approval in the future? Planning to do an armor build in August. All suggestions welcome.
  22. Here is my progress so far. This is with one ear done. I'm going against all the build threads and finishing the ears last. The first one drove me nuts. Here is the painting so far. How does it look and what should I fix? I used flex seal instead of plasti dip. Here are those pics.
  23. Really would be great to have an android version. I have a few of those just sitting around. What I phones do I need to look at purchasing?
  24. My actual left or facing the helmet left? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  25. OK so here is the assembly of the cap and back and the face. The ears are next. If there are any reference pics that would be appreciated. I have already started but it is proving a long process. As expected though.
