Hey everyone, My name is Daniel and I used to go by xfetttx on the boards (some I still do).  I’m somewhat new to the world of TK’s but I have been 501st since 2009. I make rubber/foam weapons and props.  I’ve been posting progress on Instagram  (@hellhounds_props)  on my E-11 build. I'm based out of Southern California and wanted to get more connected with this group and offer any assistance I could! I usually make dirty costumes as I'm pretty bad and keeping things clean but I'll hopefully have a TK to go along with my TD soon.

Hi Daniel and Welcome! 

 

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.

 

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 Daniel!

 

Are you making lightweight, accurate rubber E-11s?   If you’re considering going down this route, consider posting in the Foundry - Armor and Prop section.

 

have fun in your TK research!
