Linz AM ANH build thread WIP

Recommended Posts


Hey bud,

You’ll be applying for clearance through your UKG WIP. The guys will advise on applying for your TKID. That part is done at 501st.com but requires UKG approving your costume.

Once you are UKG cleared and get your TKID, you can request your FISD Trooper status here;
https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/16-501st-trooper-status-requests-include-link-to-your-501st-profile-in-your-request/?do=getNewComment

Hope that helps a little. Exciting times. :-)

Thanks buddy, that’s a lot clearer. I’ll see what they need for First stage and get that done. That’s been a busy few months in the man cave but really enjoyed the challenges and triumphs. Can see why people don’t just stop with the first one. Ordered a TRamp system today and will fit Troopercoola set when they arrive. Gone a bit over budget but worth it

Haha. You won’t regret it. I’m a TRamp too and it’s been faultless for me.

Really chuffed for you. Getting clearance is a super exciting day. :-)

Looking good nice work on the build, if I may just suggest a couple of tweaks shouldn't be a hold up for basic though just suggestions:

 

Your shoulder bells have a different gap, your left should come in a little more.

 

Belt should come up a little more, it should sit just under the bottom ab button.

 

You have a big gap around the knees, I did too, so I added some foam on the inside of the shins at the bottom so when I closed them they sat higher up on the boots, not a hold up for basic will just look a bit better.

Cheers. Will adjust shoulder bell and get it closer, just needs an additional snap. I’ve added some Velcro so will get the belt nudged up a bit.
Good shout re shins, was going to add foam as they started to spin a turn a bit but also want them to sit higher. To close the gap as much as I can .
Thanks

Hi Linz,

Looking good.

Apart from the arms being on the wrong arms (doh, lol), I’d just highlight some of the return edges on the limbs. It looks like you have a lot of return edge on the lower thighs (near knees), top of shins, and also around the ankle - the ankle usually has zero return edge. Whilst this probably won’t affect approval, it might get mentioned if you apply for the higher levels. It might also be uncomfortable.

Here’s a couple of examples.

Best of luck with clearance. :-)

Thanks buddy. You noticed the arms then? I have them labelled up, gotta be the first time I’ve put them on wrong. It did get picked up so will re do pictures.
I was reluctant to remove lower shin return edge (boot end) as I need as much length as possible in them being 6’4” so I’m going to have to leave them. Other return edges I kept as I have really thin legs and hoped they gave a few cm extra depth as well as making it look a big more beefy. Will it be a deal breaker as nothing in CRL about return edges on majority of parts other than wrist end in forearms?
Cheers for ongoing feedback, it’s all really handy

Hi mate.

No, shouldn’t affect clearance, just a personal choice really. If you choose to apply for EIB and Centurion, these will likely be mentioned as the screen used suits had less return edge - although, it’s not technically in the CRL so would more likely be a “suggestion”. If you watch the opening scene of ANH, you’ll notice that the armour still looks amazing even with the slightly shallower return edge. See how it goes, bud.

Not long til you can get out there and troop.

With the thigh ammo pack, could someone give me pointers on where it’s supposed to attach to the leg? Seen lots of threads but can’t quite tell whether I need to trim ends etc

I have the AM kit too. I put some extra bends in to fit it right and put the rivets where they are in the pictures I referenced. These pics have Chicago screws holing it on but I’ve since bought the correct rivet kit from Troooerbay. It does the AB/kidney straps and the knee ammo belt and are centurion level split rivets and washers. Double cap or single cap rivets are also accepted. I prefer single cap or split rivets myself.

Make sure to round the corners. The rivet locations in the thighs are easier to see on the inside of these pics.

Fingers crossed again, got arms on correct sides this time, obviously just testing everyone before, no one would be that daft to put arms on the wrong sides especially when they’re labelled up inside

Button panels painted today, side poppers added, fashioning a slide catch to help keep it aligned. Elastics added to arm parts. Gloves ordered. Re measure of legs so hope to get them finished this week.

Hi. I’ve been cleared and submitted options for my TK number, how long does it usually take to get confirmation on this as it’s not showing on UKG site? Also can anyone advise where I find local events to do my induction? I’m in Bristol. Thanks

Hiya.

Probably within a week to get confirmation of your number.

Regarding an induction, you should now have access to the “events” part of the UKG forum. Look for the troops with “induction” marked in the header as there are quite a few throughout the year. If you’re happy to travel, MCM London in May is an EPIC event and is also usually an induction troop. :-)

Thank you, do I just keep an eye on the My UKG page for TK number to appear?
May fairly booked up but sounds great. Can’t wait to actually get out in it

Congratulations once again.

 

First request higher access here 

Then have a read through the EIB section (you must be approved as an EI before you can request Centurion)
