  1. You're right there, I might have used a lazy Sunday as an excuse for an impromptu photo shoot today!
  2. Thanks Dan, I can't thank you enough for all the help you've given me
  3. Hi everyone, my name is Jim and I'm from Royal Leamington Spa in England! Nobody uses the Royal bit apart from visiting comedians to take the mick and it's really not as posh as it sounds! I started this journey way back in 2019 when the world was a very different place, I bought my kit from RWA along with an E11 kit from Doopy-Doos and began building. The only problem is I have as much proficiency in building things as I do making the Kessel run in 12 parsecs! I started with the E11 and after many mistakes and extra things bought to rectify my weenie-ups I finally finished it and thought, there's no way I'm going to completely ruin my armour by actually attempting to make it! The world then changed and everyone went quiet and my kit stayed in a BBB under the stairs gathering dust. In 2022 I decided enough was enough, (well, my wife did and said I either needed to build it or sell it!), so I decided to seek out somebody to build it for me, they did an amazing job and I only had to make a few adjustments and alterations to get it completely ready for me to troop in. So I am now an official Stormtrooper and it feels amazing! I can't wait to get out there and be part of something that brings so much joy and meet everybody. Happy Easter everyone!
  4. Hi, TK19060 requesting full access please https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=34679
  5. All black now! Just need to get the inner bolt and spring in and pop the end on and put the stickers on the scope and I'm done! Can't wait to make a start on the helmet now. Look out for the build thread! Thanks so much for your help Dan, I'll be copying from your TK build too along with the RWA videos
  6. Ha ha, mate, it's been a struggle enough to get this far! I've worked in offices all my life and I'm not used to getting my hands dirty so this has been a real eye opener. Going to leave the inner bolt and ejection port and spring silver, everything else will be black although I see the grip and T-tracks now have to look plastic for Centurion? I'm itching to start on the suit so if that's the only thing that holds me back when I'm done I'll deal with it then
  7. Yes, just black, apart from the silver bits, not going to do any weathering at this stage
  8. Very, VERY good! [emoji3] It's been a long time coming
  9. I've put the primer on, hung up on the washing line!
  10. I'm baaaaack! [emoji846] It looks like the family stuff might actually be sorted soon so I'm going to carry on with my TK, here's where I've got to so far
  11. Managed to get the guard off cleanly so I'll put that in the right place. I was hoping to get away with glueing the stock but it's not working so I'm going to drill through and use a countersunk screw, maybe using a little green stuff to cover the screw head
  12. Balls! I had no idea that was wrong. I struggled with Airfix kits, not sure why I thought I could do this, let alone to Centurion standard. [emoji53] What's the best way to get that off, I'm using an epoxy resin
  13. Didn't quite get the sanding right on the sight so need some more green stuff there. Need to tidy up from glue overspill. Found the perfect sized tube to cut, the spring is not going quite so well!
  14. Made a bit more progress over the weekend, unfortunately some family stuff has come up so I can't dedicate as much time as I would like but I've got most bits glued in place now
  15. Thanks, I can't wait to get started! I'm constantly referring to that, I find it difficult to see the details sometimes once its all been painted up though
