I'm Dave. I came across the FISD and 501st Legion about 2 years ago but I wasn't able to buy any armor. I started a build thread under the name of Von Goodleef. I am glad that I waited and came across Whitearmor.net before buying an armor kit. And learned about scrupulous makers from Mos Eisly. If things work out I will be buying my armor very soon then begin my armor building journey with all these good folk on here. I have also put my request in at my local garrison for new recruits. Thanks again to all the help I've already received

Hi Alan 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, keep in 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:

I've already started a build thread and looked at getting started section. And decided on armor kit from Dave's Dark Side depot. I've contacted my local garrison but they don't respond to my messages that much. There are is one that lives close to me but I don't know how to reach them. And I will start building my armor to Centurian specs. Thank you for your help.
