  1. I bought the regular suit, as cool as the ribbed one looks
  2. Only real noticable mistake I did so far, though I'm sure you guys might be able to spot others where I might have trimmed too much on other parts. I'm going to have to bondo this lip back on and then retrim it. The armor isn't flush with the undersuit right? It has a bit of overhang to prop it up from the body yeah? Or is this microfocusing not that important in the long run. Pictured: backplate
  3. Hi Jeremy, sorry for such the long delay. For some reason I didn't get any notifications to the site. I got my Undersuit from ExtremeRacing, the UK based company. https://www.extremeracing.co.uk/stormtrooper-costume.html Progress has resumed! Finally nice weather and a kick in the *** to take the armor out of the winter storage.
  4. It's not the prettiest first try, but it's mine. Today is cutting day, trying to get as much as I can done while it isn't raining like every other day. Cuts are very raw but the job today is to get all the fat off and then sand the excess down. That's how you're suppose to do this, right? Also damn the helmet was a pain. I can see why they come seperated and not joined now. Tricky angles for a fat dremel. So far I've cut the outer arm gauntlets and the helmet. Edit: Helmet eyes, mouth vents, gauntlets, chest front+ back, stomach and pelvis front+ back are cut out
  5. I'd like to do the helmet first! Michigan had a ban on certain products issued due to COVID 19 so I have yet to obtain my paints and glosses to use. I want to start, but due to COVID I am out of a job, so I've been focusing my time on alternative income with my 3d works. I also am in contact with someone who might be able to 3d print my Phase 0 darktrooper armor I modelled out, so perhaps after this is all over..... I'll have two kits i have to build! haha
  6. With HeadShotProps, do not trust any date of shipping they give you. (From my experience) The product quality is sturdy and good, but my god, the shipping delays. I ordered a R1 TK helmet, It arrived on May 13th, 2020. I ordered it in January. The estimate was Feburary. When I asked about the helmet progress, it took around 1.5 weeks to get a response (which isn't horrible, people have lives outside this.). Every date I was told the helmet would ship was missed. Be it "2 weeks from now", "This weekend" or "on the 15th" for example. Oh, and then communication just stopped. In the end, I didn't even think I was going to get a helmet. I was completely confused when I had a package arrive for me in May. I'm glad I got what I paid for in the end, perhaps that's the accidental business practice HSP has. I was told the delays was due to a manufacturing problem with the new machines + install, then there was no excuses, just dates and missing dates. And then COVID-19 happened. I like to think it was just a load of unfortunate coincidences. I own a 850 Armorworks kit, its approve-able. You can check my build log from my profile to see all the parts I got for my costume to be. As ImperialValour said too, he has a 850 kit and is 501st approved.
  7. "The time has come!" My Headshot Props R1 Bucket arrived today. I'm very satisfied with how it was packaged and molded, everything looks clean and in place. The work it needs is exactly as advertised. The last puzzle piece! On the right is the Hasbro Black Series TK helmet.
  8. QDC's E-11 Arrived in the mail today! Very nice quality and sturdiness to it! Literally the last thing I'm waiting on now is the Helmet.
  9. Since my last post, the armor is the last thing I'm waiting to come in. I ordered a bucket from HSP, and then the day after, asked if the helmets were in stock. Was told yes, and they would ship in 11 days... Its been longer than 11 days. Jan 14 ordered Jan 15 asked if the items in stock. Jan 16 "This item is in stock ro ship within 10 working days please let me know of we can help any further. Joe" Jan 29, asked for shipping info Jan 31, asked again for shipping info, the Etsy ship deadline was on Jan 28 (No response) Feb 8, (ask on facebook) I ask if the R1 TKs are being worked on at all, the last time a helmet was shown was Janurary 3 "The final ones should be pulled next week. Got pneumonia and had some vac machine issues . Just had to finance this mother for 14k .(image attached of huge machine)" Feb 11 (responce on Etsy) "Hi XXXXXX, Sorry for the delayed response. I'm a bit backed up and have had pneumonia for the last 3 days while setting up a new vac table. I didn't forget you. We'll get it shipped as soon as possible. You'll receive a tracking email when it ships. Thanks for your patience." Feb 18, I ask what the email will be so that I don't have it accidentally sent to spam folder. (No response on Etsy. ) March 3, (Facebook) I ask for any good news. 850armorworks gave me an estimate of their armor shipping around March 13. If Headshotprops continues to ignore me, or has no shipping information at that date, I'll be highly disappointed, and will have to swallow up my 'Giving the benefit of the doubt'. On Facebook, there's been another shopper who says there's been no contact with them at all concerning their order. My goal of having armor built by July is coming closer, and the one thing I intended to do, was finish the helmet before the body comes. Perhaps I'll just have to use my Black Series helmet. I should have taken the things I saw on the forums more seriously, concerning Headshot props. There were a handful of positive results, but the bad, is bad. Its just very hard to find R1 gear anywhere. You have HSP, and Jimmi. I chose HSP just because I would rather not deal with fiberglass, and didn't know where to contact Jimmi, as he is inactive on here.
  10. Can't wait to see your progress. Wheres the blaster from? You gonna convert it to a E-11 R1 or keep it OT? I ordered my armor from 850 aswell, so whenever it decides to come in, we could be 850 R1TK Build thread battle buddies haha
  11. Their website is up and currently taking new orders as usual. They have a detailed post on the website explaining the situation. Working time has been cut and shipping delays are to be expected.
  12. Welcome to the forums. If you want to be an ANH TK, you would need to purchase a armor kit for 501st approval.
