Hello From Georgia!

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone, 

 

I have just begun my research in the Trooper world, but have solidly set my sights on a female Legacy trooper version A. (I’m short, so I need all the height I can get!) I am already a member of the RL , but only a cadet in the 501st. Me and my husband both hope to begin our builds this fall/winter depending on research and budget. I appreciate any tips and tricks fellow members would like to share!

Welcome to the FISD!!! although I don't know much on the Fem, you have come to the right place! be sure to have you husband also get on and create a profile. this way we can document both builds for individual assistance and to assist future troopers down the road!

 

one piece of advise I would like to give to both of you is, go ahead and start collecting the soft parts and snaps, rivets, elastic, and such, this will make it way easier once you order you kits to start when they come in. If you have any questions please ask. Have a look around the forum and search, search, search. The research is probably the most important part of all of this, besides the good that we do once approved.

Hi Beth & Welcome to the FISD!!

If you haven done so I would start by reading this section here!

You’ll find just about everything you think of when it comes to getting started and your armor needs! Speaking of armor needs our fellow Trooper and Deployment Office justjoseph63 has put together a great and very useful checklist of what you’ll need other then that amazing white shiny stuff. I found that personally it came in extremely helpful for my build.

 

Once that has been all decided upon then I would dive into our EIB / Centurion sections and find out which a little extra effort you can get on screen accuracy.

 

Hope that helps point you in the right direction, I know its a ton of information and a good size financial commitment  so if any other questions come up feel free to ask.

Its why we’re here “ Troopers helping Troopers”

 

Best of luck in your journey.

Hello Beth and welcome to the FISD! @Chopper857 has been documenting his wife and his build thread well over here:

 

The main thing I hear about Legacy Troopers is that getting boots is the biggest difficulty, so I suggest doing that near the beginning to ensure that they don't become the last thing holding you back!

Hi Beth, if you want the extra height version A is the way to go and there is a solid source for the boots out there now (Tracey loves her’s). Like it’s been pointed out please have a look at the build thread I’m still updating the photos and we’ve learnt a lot along the way , By all means drop us a message if you have any extra questions and we will try answer all. Will keep a eye out for your build thread.. good luck and welcome to the madness

The kind welcome from everyone is wonderfully overwhelming! Thank you all so much for the kind words and tips. My husband will be making his profile this evening so we can begin the process. As suggested, we have decided to begin collecting the soft parts for the next few months before purchasing the “big brown box”. As well, I will be purchasing my shoes next month in hopes that everything arrives close to the same time. We are so exciting to begin this journey!

Thank you! My husband will be making his profile this evening. And I appreciate the tip! I am doing my research now and will begin collecting soft parts through the next few months until we are ready to order our kits.

Thank you so much for the welcome and links! As suggested by another member, I am purchasing the soft parts now, to keep from being overwhelmed. That check list is amazingly detailed and will definitely help to keep us organized. We are so excited to start this journey! I appreciate the outpouring of support and help. This truly already feels like a big family!

Thank you! Oh this will be so helpful!!! Thank you! Yes, after a bit of research, we have decided to order my shoes next month. I hope I can time everything just right, so that it all arrives close to the same time.

Thank you for reaching out! I will definitely take a look at your build thread! And I’m sure you’ll be receiving a good bit of questions soon. Haha. As others have pointed out about the long wait time, I have decided to go ahead and order my boots next month in hopes that the dates will line up with other items as well. Excited to begin this journey!

Welcome Beth. Take your time with each phase of your build and purchases. I found myself buying tons of things at first that never ended up getting used as I hoped because by the time I finished my build, I found better or more useful things along the way from other member builds, etc. best of luck. Ask away if needed!

Thanks! I know! I definitely had an ‘ah-ha’ moment when I found the CRL for it. Can’t wait to get started!   Sounds good! We figure it might be helpful to attend the shop night next month to learn a bit and see how it all works!
