  1. Really good advice once again. I only placed my order yesterday so I’m sure I have time to update my measurements. Sent from The Empire
  2. So I think I’ve made a small error chaps. For my arm measurements, this was done whilst they were relaxed and straight by my side. Should I have flexed for the bicep?
  3. I’m so excited for this Potato. Looking forward to BBB Day
  4. So I’ve taken my first step to joining the 501st today and ordered a full commission ANH stormtrooper from RS. I’m super excited, I can’t put into words. one question to ask at this stage. For anyone who has had an RS commission build, when you provided your measurements, did you allow for extra room, or did you measure as you are without being too tight? I chose to go for the latter but second guessing myself.
  5. That’s good to know. I’m sure if it came to more complex adjustments, I’m sure a local armourer will be on hand to help me. Appreciate the advice, Lord. Hope all is well in the USA - miss that place. Sent from The Empire
  6. Thanks for the detailed overview, Potato. The sizing of the torso doesn’t really bother me. I know some adjustments will need to be made somewhere. Was there any cutting involved with your adjustments? That’s where I lack a bit of confidence as I’m not really a DIY person, hence the commission build.
  7. For those of you who have followed some of my topics recently, you’ll notice I have done a bit of toing and froing on whether I should build the suit myself or getting the commission build. In the end, I’ve decided on the latter and after extensive research, I will be ordering from RS and strongly feel this is the right choice. If anyone has ever ordered a commission build from RS, I’d be interested to know how you found the process (e.g. sending measurements, adjustments you’ve had to make when receiving the suit etc)and if there is anything I need to consider? I kno
  8. Hi guys, After watching countless number of videos on how to build stormtrooper armour, in particular those on RS’ YouTube channel, I’ve decided I’m going to go for it. I’m going to build my own. The research I’ve done shows I’ll have all the help and support I need right here on FISD. my helmet is already ordered and will already be built, the rest is up to me (scary and exciting). I’m going to start a build thread. Am I better of doing this for each separate section or a general one for the whole build? Thanks, Tim
  9. Hi Short, Thanks for your reply. Yes, I’m aware that RS had a fire (glad they’re all safe). In fact, I’ve ordered ANH hero helmet from them last week before it happened so I’ll have a wait on my hands. I would imagine this will seriously impact them and hadn’t considered the already lengthy wait time, so thanks for pointing that out. I’d love to have the confidence to build my own as I can clearly see it’s part of the fun. The reason for my reluctance though is my track history with building things. I’m prone to mistakes and I don’t feel I have the ability to adequatel
  10. Hi all, Im doing my planning and research for my armour for my 501st membership. My mindset is to aim for Centurian level off the bat rather than just aiming for Basic. From the research I’ve done so far, I feel that RS would be best for me. I’ve outlined my attributes below so you have an idea of my circumstances. 1. I’m 5’8” with a slim build. As I understand it, RS’ armour has direct lineage to the original moulds (?) which works well for my build and height. 2. As a beginner, and in general, I don’t trust myself to build the suit on my own. I’m not big on DIY and
  11. Brilliant Joseph. Thanks for the clarification and pointing me in the right direction. I’ll take a look.
  12. Thanks for all your help guys. I just have a couple of follow-up questions: 1. In terms of entry to the 501st, I’m looking to get the RS armour later this year (once they’ve had chance to recover from the fire this week...and I have the money). From what I can see there are different entry levels and I’m struggling to find information of what qualifies for these different bands. Can anyone point me in the right direction where I can find out more? 2. is it possible to get a TK number before submitting your armour for approval? I’ve requested access to the UK G
  13. Thanks, Rob. Really feel for them, even after only being aware of them for under a week. They invest so much time and passion into what they do and sadly this kind of thing happens to the best of us. As you say, patience and support is what they need now and I’m sure they’ll get it.
  14. Thanks One Guy. I’ve actually ordered the hero helmet from RS with a view to getting a fully commissioned suit in the future.
