  1. You're helmet build looks great, but I can see some of the causes of your issues. I'll DM you. Sent from my Imperial Comlink
  2. Welcome Jeff! You're on an exciting journey. My first 501st costume was assembling a TK ANH Stunt kit from AP, and I had a blast. Mark from AP is very helpful, so always reach out to him. I also found a wealth of support from everyone on the forum here - there is no end to the experience here! My advice (echoed to me by many, many others here) is, take your time. Whether it takes months or years, build the armour you want the first time. Good luck and have fun! Sent from my Imperial Comlink
  3. That's a stunner! Cant wait to get my hands on some. Congrats! Sent from my Imperial Comlink
  4. An amazing achievement and the beginning of an even bigger feat! Congratulations to all! Sent from my Imperial Comlink
  5. Congratulations Grave! It is such an achievement. As Centurion #488, I can say to anyone thinking of embarking on either a new build or upgrades in order to reach the certification, just go for it! The process of researching designs, techniques, materials and mods (if required) to build a set of TK ANH Centurion armour gave me a comprehensive understanding of building armour in general, as well as an appreciation for the fine details that entail EIB and Centurion status. This is experience I will take into my next build, and the next, and so on. Sent from my Imperial Comlink
  6. Congrats Jakob! Sent from my Imperial Comlink
  7. Amazing work! It's quite a feeling of accomplishment to nail the small details. Sent from my Imperial Comlink
  8. Thanks, folks! It's an honor to be here! Sent from my Imperial Comlink
  9. Mark Gambino 84212 A4 Mario Many thanks! http://www.whitearmor.net/eib/certificates/84212-centurion.png
  10. Thank you! Wow, boy! I am definitely proud and grateful, and very, very stoked! A big thanks to the DOs for their guidance and patience. You're all doing (and have always done) an amazing job to help everyone get to 500 and beyond. A rising tide lifts all boats, as they say. A big thanks also to my fellow troopers at Knightfall for their help and guidance. It's been a tough year for many, but the feeling of isolation has been lessened somewhat knowing I could always reach out for assistance. It won't be long now and we can actually meet and troop!
  11. Hey team! An update on my build. My submission to EIB was approved last week (thanks to the Emperor!) and want to say a big thanks to everyone who helped with advice along the way. Building in isolation (literally) was a little daunting to begin with, but a lot of research, advice and many questions from myself made it feel like I was in a crowded room with friends. Thanks! A mighty thanks also to the DOs, who have set many high bars with the EIB 1000 and Centurion 500. I'm also proud to announce I have submitted my TK for Centurion assessment. I've spent the last week(-ish) making mods and have to say I am much happier. FYI - I took a cm off either side of the kidney plate to bring in the sides (which included ABS pasting the holes and drilling new ones), replaced the Ab/kidney plate connections, gave the shoulder bridges a heat treatment, repositioned the velcro on my belt to get it to sit higher, and painted black the cocking lever on my E-11.

  13. Thank you! This is amazing! With all the advice I received and the other excellent builds out there that I poured over, it feels like a real team effort. Thanks to everyone who helped me! I've made notes of your suggestions for a Centurion submission and will get onto fixes this weekend. Thanks again! Sent from my Imperial Comlink
  14. Hey Mario, Great, thanks! I've added two photos of my boots to the above. The white balance seems a little off though, I assure you they are white as white!
  15. Congrats! Everyone is killing it! And big clap for the team working through approvals. Sent from my Imperial Comlink
