  1. As Mario said, a couple dabs of E6000 should do the trick on your brow trim above the eyes, while also giving you the flexibility of removal in the future. You may also be able to tighten up the gap between the cap (top) piece of the helmet and the faceplate in order to provide more tension for the trim to stay up. However, just keep in mind that any change in the alignment of the face and cap may result in changes to the ears and gaps around them.
  2. Thanks Glen! We need Panda to come back and update his old posts! That's one of the reasons I've also created a great many PDF versions of threads on here--to essentially future-proof the content with photos, at least in one format.
  3. Based on the permissions error I'm receiving, I'm guessing that the below post by Terry is archived due to broken photo links. Is this correct? If so, bummer, as I had it on my resource thread. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/13288-howto-assemble-arm-armor/
  4. Man I wish I had a RO kit so I could jump on this, considering my obsession with thermal detonators. I’m still waiting on Justin to convert his Jimmi to one of these variants. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. We all know that @justjoseph63 won't be able to unsee the seen, and that we'll all soon have more greebs to add to our blasters.
  6. Ardeshir (equuspolo) is a film industry stuntman who also happens to be a member of the 501st, and a very cool guy and asset to this community. This is publically-available and LFL-approved knowledge: recently he has been in Kenobi as a stormtrooper donning the RO-style kits, as well as one of the first live-action clones seen on screen. His own joke is that he's perhaps the only 501st member to have actually executed Order 66 in (semi) real life.
  7. @equuspolo said on FB this morning that that HWT pack was his, and apparently he's going to share his specs with the forum at some point. Wish I was a stuntman in Cali. Now who here is going to add red lights to their pack? Haha. Heck, my pack isn't done yet...
  8. I liked seeing the TKs with DLTs too! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Geez 92 inches Dan?! Now I know where to have my next SW marathon next time I'm in Europe. Haha. Looking forward to seeing these OTTKs for myself tonight after work.
  10. I thought the bronzed scope was indicative of the newest run! Very cool! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Lookin' good, Matt! Gotta ask, is that one of the newest Hellhounds blasters from this year?
  12. These names are gold. Somebody needs to print these on those metal blaster plaques for display with our E-11s. I'll take a set. lol. And fantastic job with this research and build; I can't believe I'm just now seeing it! If your project end is not in sight, then what does that make my armor build that I began in 2019...
  13. Awesome, Jonathan! HERE IS A LINK to a section here on FISD where you can post some pre-approval photos of you in your kit for feedback, if you so choose. You could also reach out to Cricket or the other Georgia GMLs (Garrison Member Liaisons) to ask if they'd be able to clear your boots. Additionally, below is a link to the Georgia Garrison's approval process: https://www.ga501st.com/joinus/ Exciting times ahead!
  14. Very coo! Have you already submitted to Cricket and the GML team for approval? Waiting on gloves? Do I also see some ridges on the tops of your shoes?
  15. Such a labor of love, and sad to see kiddos grow up! But pretty soon you'll be able to get him into an OTTK kit!! No suggestions on pricing from me, but man you did amazing on this project!
  16. Always great to see armor coming together. One thing you might consider is removing the return edges at the tops of the biceps completely since they will essentially be hidden by the shoulder bells. This will also spare you some potential armor bite. You can also trim off the notch are shown in the photos below from Joseph's Return Edges 101 thread.
  17. It certainly does sound a bit counter-intuitive, and the way I would implement the curve would be to not actually trim off extra material at the top and bottom of the bells, but instead trim less in the middle portion (depending on how obvious the trim lines are). Different sized troopers will definitely have differing results based on their shoulder size. The other aspect of trimming a curve to cover more under-suit is that, when pulling the top of your bell as close as possible to the shoulder bridges, the curve conforms better to the curve of the chest piece than a straight line would.
  18. Your shoulder bell identification looks correct to me, with the ridge swooping towards the front of the wearer. As for trimming, keep in mind that screen-used bells often had a curved edge, which helped better cover the wearer and minimize the amount of black under-suit showing. Many trim lines on armor these days have straight lines, but if you have the option, I'd recommend a curved edge. Below are two examples from the FISD Gallery.
  19. Welcome, Adam! You're certainly in the right place for all things Stormtrooper-related! Congrats on your BBB (big brown box) Day; it's always very exciting (and daunting)! I do know that some troopers offer assembly services, but can't point you to anybody specific. I'm sure somebody else will chime in with some information though. That being said, at one point all of us had never before put together our own kit before, and relied heavily on the resources here on FISD. I would encourage you to take a shot at it yourself, especially since you'll be able to guarantee proper fitment to your body. If you have somebody else assemble it for you, you'll need to provide very specific measurements of many parts of your figure, and then upon completion of the suit you'll likely need to make further adjustments yourself. You have a whole group of fine folks here on these forums to help you along your journey, so if you decide to assemble yourself, definitely start a build thread and post LOTS of updates with photos, and ask TONS of questions! In short, ask before you cut/drill; measure twice (or thrice), cut once. Below is a link to a resource thread I compiled which includes a wide range of information that I've found very helpful on my own journey. Perhaps it can be of service to you too!
  20. Joseph, just the other day when you posted your blaster wall I actually thought of your RV mini man cave and wondered what might have become of it. Ironically, my TK-build room has, as of this past week, begun transforming into a nursery. (But don’t fret, progress continues!) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I like your thinking, Glen. I actually saw that a while ago but had never made the addition. Thread updated, so Joseph's love of sugru is now doubly represented on here.
  22. I imagine some others would be interested in your edit. Asking for a friend. ;-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Dan - I'm surprised you haven't yet replicated a Mr. No Stripes bucket HDPE style with weathering and appropriately matching trimming/sanding. Next on your list, right, with the trooper with the best imagery?
  24. Hi David, and welcome to FISD! You're absolutely right that there is an abundance of information here, but also lots of people to help you along on your journey. First up below is a link to the vetted sellers list, quite a few of whom are in North America, and a couple actually in Canada. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/11538-the-various-types-of-armor-and-where-to-find-them/ Here are a couple more links to threads which document items you'll need for your build. Are you hoping to purchase a commissioned suit then? https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/31404-supply-list-for-your-ot-tk-build/ https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/47307-list-of-soft-parts-for-your-ot-tk-build/ And finally, here is an all-in-one, of sorts, thread which includes much of what you'd need to know to build your own kit. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/49412-all-in-one-tk-anh-stunt-index-of-resources-by-maskedvengeance/ Feel free to introduce yourself in the New Member Introduction forum: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/forum/5-new-member-introductions/ We all look forward to following along on your journey to become a TK! -Caleb
  25. Great first troop, Joe, approval on 501st day! I see that you don't yet have Stormtrooper status here on the forum, but you can request it at the link below. =)
