  1. Alright, I went ahead and made contact with RS Prop Masters and they have shipped some spare ABS. Once again I’m stunned by their excellent customer service! Now to wait for that package so I can get started on my shim. I’ll keep everyone posted as events unfold, I’m getting closer to that EIB Badge. Cam Blair TK-22020
  2. Thanks for the advice, I’ll go ahead and shoot RS an email right now. You’re absolutely right, their customer service is excellent!
  3. To be completely honest I got distracted by a new helmet electronics project. I've taken my bucket from film accurate foam and chin strap to fully loaded with iComm, hearing aid, and a four fan cooling system. Also I went ahead and replaced my eye lens strip and that foam with a hard hat liner. None of this is getting me any closer to EIB status, but it's a lot of fun. My next step will be getting my hands on a good non-acetone paint remover for my cod piece buttons and acquiring some extra ABS and paste for making my kidney plate shim. I'll keep this thread updated as I move forward, thanks everyone!
  4. Excellent, thank you all for your responses. It seems based on the CRL and what others have done that extending the kidney plate with an additional strip of ABS on the inside is the way to go. Also, since Centurion approval requires that there be no seam, adding ABS paste to the exterior and then sanding and painting will set me up for success in the future. As always thanks again for the quick responses, I have some work to do.
  5. Good Morning Troopers, I'm currently trying to get my armor EIB approved and the only step giving me any trouble is closing up that kidney plate to abdomen plate gap on my right side. From what I can gather the requirement is that it be of the same plastic as your armor, that it be correctly lined up to your abdomen and kidney plates, and that it close the gap between your armor plates to less than 1/2 an inch (Less than 1/4 inch for Centurion.). This guidance seems vague and maybe it's meant to be. So would it be accurate that an approvable shim could be anything from a cut out piece of ABS Velcro-ed or hot glued into place on one side and long enough to slide under the armor plate on the other side, to a piece glued in with E-6000, pasted, sanded, and made to appear seamless? would either of these options hypothetically be acceptable, or is there more strict guidelines that I'm missing somewhere? Ideally I'd like to shed a few inches off my waist and just fit in the armor as is, but I don't have time to wait around for that, I need to be one of the first 1000! Lol. In any case, thanks in advance for any advice, guidance, or redirection to something I missed. Very Respectfully, Cam Blair TK-22020
  6. Good Evening Troopers, Alright, so I went ahead and uploaded the photos requested, everything should be here with the exception of my Kidney/Abdomen gap, which of course will require alteration. Please let me know if there are any other photos needed for approval and if there’s anything else to get closer to that EIB Badge. In the mean time I’ll be busy at home doing some shimming. Thanks again for all the help, I’m always blown away by the generosity of everyone here. https://imgur.com/a/AVcYTsg Very Respectfully, TK22020
  7. Thank you TK Spartan! I actually took a number of additional photos, some that you mentioned, but I’ll have to take a few more tomorrow to meet these requirements. I had some trouble uploading them because I met my upload limit and I’m not sure how to edit or delete already uploaded photos. I went ahead and made an account on imgur and I’ll work towards adding more soon. In any case thank you very much for this initial input, it is greatly appreciated! I look forward to continuing with the whole process and eventually getting approval. Very Respectfully, TK-22020

  9. I feel inspired! I will be posting pictures tomorrow, hopefully I can get approved as one of the first thousand Expert Infantry, and if not, well I’ve got plenty of time on my hands to make the necessary adjustments. Thanks Troopers!
  10. Loyal Citizens, I've recently made the transition from Cadet to Imperial Stormtrooper, I'm pleased to have been accepted and can't wait for my first assignment. My armor was made by RS Prop Masters and I couldn't be happier with the results, I highly recommend them to anyone looking to get a solid foundation armor set and a quality worthy of 501st Legion membership right out of the box. It is my intention to begin work on my armor in preparation for joining the ranks of the Expert Infantry, and eventually, to join the ranks of the Centurions. Thank you to everyone who welcomed me so warmly to the forum and a special thanks to everyone who guided me to RS Prop Masters, I doubt I would have found them at all without this forum. Long live the Emperor, long live the Empire! Best Regards, Cameron
  11. TK22020, Garrison Titan, respectfully requesting 501st Legion status, Sir. https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=30908
  12. Well, "Big Brown Box" day finally arrived! RS Propmasters provided my full commissioned TK Armor in a timely manner and I'm very pleased! It took about forty days from start to finish for the armor to be created and prepared for shipping, again it's built to my personal body measurements so that added some time I'm sure. Once it was complete, it shipped in just a few days, and when I arrived home from work on Monday, there were two big brown boxes waiting for me. My kit included a full commissioned ANH Stunt armor, a canvas belt with a leather holster, a standard issue Blastec E-11 Blaster, and everything else I need to begin the process of joining the 501st Legion. I now have a solid foundation on which to build upon, I'm very happy with the final result and very excited to get started in earnest.
  13. First of all, Thank you all for the warm welcome, I'm honored to be working towards becoming a member of such a friendly group of people. Yes, RS informed me that my order will take eight weeks to build, it is a commission made to my measurements and specifications. I'm alright with waiting, it'll be worth the wait I'm sure. I am very much interested in qualifying for EIB and Centurion, I ordered not only the armor, but also the helmet, the blaster, the soft pieces, the body suit, and the strapping. I've been doing research into checklists for EIB and Centurion and I look forward to seeing my armor in person so I can evaluate the small details more closely. Thanks again everyone, I'll be in the forums preparing myself for BBB day! For the glory of The Empire!
  14. Greetings Everyone, Not sure if this is the right place for this or not, but today I officially began the process of acquiring my TK armor. I spent nearly a month looking through my options in order to best choose my character, film, and most difficult of all, my seller. I finally decided on RS Prop Masters, I got into contact with them and they were very helpful, very thorough, and fast acting. Excellent customer service so far. It sounds like I have about eight to twelve weeks of waiting ahead of me before “Big Brown Box Day”, and I’ll be waiting with as much patience as I can muster. Thank you all for your help so far, looking forward to posting pictures when my armor finally arrives and continuing this build thread. For the glory of The Empire!
  15. Greetings everyone, my name is Cameron, I'm 30 years old, and I live in the Pacific Northwest with my Wife and Daughter. I'm currently serving in the US Submarine Force on Active Duty, my schedule is unpredictable, but I'm passionate about being of service to others, being a part of a community, and of course, Star Wars. The 501st Legion has always appealed to me, I've been an avid Star Wars fan since I was a toddler, but it's always felt just out of reach, a bit overwhelming, and beyond my artistic abilities. I now find myself in need of a challenging, rewarding hobby, and honestly the 501st Legion sounds perfect. I plan on trooping as a classic, ANH Stormtrooper, a role I've wanted to fulfil for a very long time, I've done about a week's worth of research and all signs pointed me here, to whitearmor.net, and to my local garrison, Garrison Titan, who I intend to make contact with this weekend at their monthly gathering. The task before me is daunting, but I'm committed to success within the vaunted ranks of "Vader's Fist". I thank you all in advance for your assistance on my first steps of this journey, and I'm overjoyed that such an archive of knowledge and wisdom exists. I hope to get to know all of you in time and to someday soon report that I've successfully enlisted in the ranks of the 501st Legion, glory to the Empire, and may the Emperor guide your footsteps.
