  1. Hi Emma, The Gloves are ok and the blaster is not acceptable , It 's not the ANH Style. Mine is a "Praetorian Blasters" one, It;s not the cheaper but a great one. Another suggestion is when testing the armor parts It would be better if you wear the inner black clothes that you're going to use with it. Cheers
  2. Hi Shane, I have been searching in the forum about the front cover strips and the wide ridge. If I can make a suggestion, what if you use 25 or 30 mm front cover and 25 mm back cove strip? This would give you a better look and I have seen this in a Level 2 approved Armor . like this one This one has a 20mm I think and the ridge is less covered. Cheers
  3. My two cents, What if Those differing factors, not only in ROTJ TK but in other armors like The Mandalorian's Remanent TK and even ANH TK like mr No strips etc. Can be a 4 level of certification as the MEPD has the SWAT level? just a crazy idea for a near future. cheers
  4. oh, Ok, I think I go it, the external cover Strip is not glued yet. is it? Thats because I said if it was a ligth effect that it appears that the external cover Strip didn't cover the ridge ? Sorry .
  5. Hi, looking good, E6000 gluing is always challenging because of the swoop . just a quick question : Did you left the 7.5 mm from the internal edge in the black arrows direction ? I say this because It looks ,( I'm not sure if it's a light effect or not) like the cover strip didn't cover the edge? It's not a big Deal but is a personal option. For the Biceps pairing, take a look to this page Cheers.
  6. Hi future Trooper !! Great purchase you made. Welcome to FISD and looking forward for your Photos. Good luck
  7. Yes, the back joint as I marked in red in the above photo, the trimming is as you have said, test an adjust. glue the inner cover on the front and test, I think a good tip would be to test together with each bicep (Blue Pinter's tape) and see the shape. Measure twice or more, cut once and glue once Just a short story : when I was building my armor, ( as you, I built it alone, just browsing this forum) , I searched the web looking for several Stormtroopers images to figure out how I wanted to look like and I feel It worked for me to get the best shape.
  8. Great work with your arms Emma, from my sight, It look like you have still enough room, It's supposed to have just enough so your hand with no glove enter in, I think you can make some cut to adjust at least 1 inch. In the following photo you can see how different it looks when reduced And the inner bicep with the indented oval on it the left one . Cheers
  9. Yes, you can cut at the red line and If you feel there's enough room on your forearms , you can make adjustment on the back seams. This is a Tip taht a fellow trooper @Cricket gave in another building thread "If you haven't shaped your forearms yet, may I offer a tip? (I remember how badly oval-shaped the WTF forearms are.) I suggest assembling the fronts of the forearms together first by gluing an inner cover strip. Tape the heck out of the outside seam, though. This will allow you to clamshell-fit your forearm securely for width. All sizing adjustments for width take place on the back seams. Once you've got it properly sized and trimmed for width, glue an inner cover strip to the inside back seam (taping the heck out of the outside seam again). Then boil up some water and knock that oval into rounded submission! Inner cover strips add a lot of strength to the forearms, and allows you to get some decent hot-water shaping done without falling apart. " This is how thy should go together Cheers
  10. Hi Emma , You're right, cover strip will cover the join line. And about the arms I have found the following WTF build thread that I think could be useful for you for other build issues. there's this following photo showing the order of arms. Keep on doing an excellent work, and remember you're not alone. Here in FISD. No one left behind.
  11. Hi Ryan, personally , I prefer no ridge showing too, and it's more accuracy and it looks like you have still enough room in your forearms . look at the following reference photos. Keep on doing a great work !!
  12. I would suggest to leave a flat edge of 7.5 each half and put then together using painters tape and let see some photos of how they go on your arms.
  13. Hi Emma , glad to see your build setup, nice. About Return Edges trimming, I would like to suggest you to take a look to this useful link about Trimming . And for the shoulder bells curve, this reference photos may help to figure it out . Cheers
  14. What I did to make the elastic stronger was to double it, just fold it a couple of times. I have read of some trooper that reinforces the elastic with an ABS strip inside. I have not tried that .
  15. Could you please post a photo for the complete helmet form botton? I mean to see how the complete "S" trim is going. cheers
  16. Si puedes postea fotos de tus avances. Once you're ready , post photos. Troopers Helping Troopers
  17. Another practical tip to remove the E6000 glue in excess is just rub it with a soft cloth. the heat makes it peel off easily. try it.
