theisaac Posted August 14, 2012 Author Report Share Posted August 14, 2012 I cant thank the FISD community enough for getting this far with my build. I started out just wanting to be a part of the 501st. I never thought I would even fit in a TK. "They dont make them to fit anyone my size...." "It wont work unless you are 150lbs...." "You're gonna mess it up and ruin it..." (and I did more than once but the FISD came to the rescue). These were the reasons I did'nt want to try. Then I looked at threads and saw other builds. Learned about armor vendors. I went with AM based off of the size alone. I did'nt know TM could make armor that might fit with some shims that I had to use anyway. Its not the most accurate suit but Im really proud of it. When I do it again, I will know what pitfalls to avoid. I started with the goal of EIB but wasnt sure I could pull that off. I wanted so badly, SO BADLY... to be part of the 300 goal for this year with EIB status. Just thinking about submitting for approval was cause for anxiety. I had the same fears. "They are going to think I suck..." "They are going to hate my build because its AM..." "You'll get laughed at..." I went for it and made it. barely... but made it. Mike TK1636 from the DSG, you were a huge help and I cant thank you enough. Tim from the DSG, your help at the armor party was clutch. Brian TKRESTONVA, your build thread and your posts saved me more times than I can count. Thank you Everyone who commented on my build thread, thank you for your insight, feedback, and encouragement. I hope that thread helps others avoid the mistakes I made. The FISD as a whole, I hope I can give back and help the next guy coming up who thinks they can't do it. We did it! -Isaac Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
