Hey guys and gals, 

 

I just wanted to say hi and thanks for the wealth of knowledge shared here and thank you for being part of this amazing community. 

 

My name is Murray, I'm from Calgary Alberta Canada. I have been following you all for a long long time. I have wanted to build a ROTJ suit for many years and now have the time and means to get it started. I am as green as it gets and have never taken on a build like this. 

 

I'm going to apologize in advance, I'll have many questions and will most likely be bugging some of you for information more than you care. 

 

Thanks again and I'm thrilled to be part of your community

Hello and welcome a aboard, a great way to make sure you are on the right track is post a build thread. Also check out the gallery sections, some great references can be found there.

 

Make sure you check the ROTJ CRL as it has undergone some changes just recently https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_rotj

 

Good luck and looking forward to seeing your build.

Welcome aboard Murray!!

 

If you haven't done so, log into the Badlands Garrison Forum.   https://www.badlands.ca/

We have a large number of members in Calgary who would love to help you out. I recommend hitting up an armour party, as it's a great way to meet fellow garrison mates, get tips/help on how to build your armour and just hang out.

 

Hopefully we'll have the chance of trooping together soon.

I requested access a few days ago, looking forward to meeting some local folks!

Hi Murray and welcome aboard future Trooper! 

 

Have a read in the “Getting Started-Read this First” section, as there is some really good info in there for new members.

 

Then, have a read in “Costuming and Builds” section to discover other troopers who are building (or have built) the same armor as you! Really good tips, examples, pictures, previously answered questions, and successes here.

 

In addition to looking at all the various build threads, I highly recommend checking out the “Advanced Tactics” section where you can see examples of those who have taken their armor to the next levels of screen accuracy (EIB and Centurion).  I’d recommend that you aim to build to one of the certification levels, as TK’s look their best at these levels. It's really not hard to acquire EIB or Centurion, and it’s best to do during your build rather that after.

 

If, and when, you’re looking for other bits –and-pieces, accessories, boots, blasters, electronics, etc., be sure to check out the “Imperial Commissary/PX” section for items for sale, project runs, and for other stuff that most of the troopers use.

 

Also, make contact with your local Garrison. They’ll help guide you through the process of becoming a member of the 501st, and may have local Armor Parties in the works where you can get hands-on build advice and guidance, not to mention meet members of your future Garrison.

 

So, start a build thread here on FISD; post lots of pictures and questions. We are all here to help you out and to make sure you look your best, and represent the 501st as best as possible.

 

All the best on your TK journey!  :dancing-trooper:

Welcome fellow Canuck!

There's no such thing as asking too many questions, but not asking enough is definitely a thing.  As mentioned, check the latest CRLs to make sure you're up to date on requirements.

After that, read, ask questions, read, ask more questions, and keep your build thread going and active.  Post lots of pictures.


Have you sourced your armour and parts yet?

Welcome to White Armor!  We're all here to help, so ask all the questions!  If you haven't already, also reach out to your local 501st unit- they've all been where you are before, as have most of us on the forums.

For the most part yes,  my TK and bucket  kit are on the way from CFO and I have boots ordered from IB. I'm juggling between 2 different blaster kits and have yet to source a neck seal or holster. Webbing and undersuit I'll get locally in town.
