  1. Looks good! Does anybody know if this is a hardcover book? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Congrats, David! Well done! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Mario is absolutely correct. Wait until you know you need the cuts. Here's a link to a post from Joseph which is very helpful for higher levels of approval. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/48335-quick-crl-reference-guide-for-your-ot-build-pics-notes-tips/?do=findComment&comment=673658
  4. Welcome to the home of Stormtrooper armor! There will be tons of people here to help you along the way, so start a build thread, post photos, and ask lots of questions! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Honestly, Jonathan, I don't think you'd be able to get Legion approved in self-made PVC armor, but perhaps you're a skilled craftsman, so don't let my words dissuade you. That being said, the closest thing to a template you might find will be some for EVA foam suits which some Troopers have made for their children who can't yet fit in full-sized armor. I don't have any template links at the moment, but I was able to find some build threads by searching. My recommendation would be to go with ABS armor, and you can find vetted sellers at this link below. If cost is of concern, then you may consider ATA Works, as they are priced on the lower end. MTK/Trooperbay is another option, and I know Mike was recently running a sale. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/11538-the-various-types-of-armor-and-where-to-find-them/ I hope this helps! Good luck with your build!
  6. Yup, there are some excellent photos in the Gallery section. Both JoeR and TKCaleb have albums on there, and the RS Suit images are also screen-used. I link to a couple image sources in my resource thread below.
  7. Great progress, Emma! To clarify about the mobility cuts—they cannot extend above the raised ridge which I’ve marked with a blue line in the photo below. I’m sure somebody else will provide some reference photos, but this is all I can do from my phone at the moment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Greetings Luke, and welcome to FISD! I would follow Shane’s lead regarding return edges, and here’s a link to Joseph’s thread which he referenced! https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/48166-return-edges-101-ottk/ I look forward to building alongside you, and I am also in the middle of my own ANH Stunt TK build!

  9. Hi Tanner! Have you checked out Pandatrooper’s ATA helmet assembly thread? I’d link you to it, but I’m on my phone now. But it is included in the All-In-One reference thread link I mentioned earlier in this string. Perhaps you might find it helpful. You can also upload photos of your current progress on your own build thread for us to see, and then better assist you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. If the snaps are that strong you may considering utilizing strapping with an internal piece of ABS for reinforcement, as linked below in Cricket's thread. It sounds like you may want to avoid putting those snaps directly into nylon webbing or they might eventually tear out when trying to disconnect armor pieces. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/41502-crickets-wtf-hero-build-even-more-tk-for-the-vertically-challenged/page/5/?tab=comments#comment-605846
  11. There won’t be anything wrong with being 1001 or 1057 or 1138. Based on the past year, it seems there have been around five EI approvals a month, which may speed up a bit here at the end, but we definitely still have at least a couple months to go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. You gotta take advantage of this offer to get together at some point! I’m several hours away, otherwise I’d join the fun! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. At least if E-6000 comes apart in boiling water it can be glued back. But I understand that it can withstand some of the heat, and may just soften at first. As for the cod trimming, have you considered slicing off that whole bottom section, trimming it from the top, then reconnect? I believe Sha Sha did that on her build, but I don’t have the link readily available at this time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. When you look at reference photos in the Gallery section you'll see that there are wildly inconsistent cuts on the cover strip corners. Some are angled around 45 degrees, others near 60, and some are rounded. There wasn't a set depth of the cuts either, so this will really just be a personal preference decision for you.
  15. Looking forward to following your build! Your detail and imagery remind me of my own build, still in progress. Keep up the great work! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
