  1. TK-20119 reporting in
  2. Welcome! Great choices
  3. Welcome! Great choice - definitely take a look at the BHG forums. Lots of info there. And definitely feel free to post or check in with any queries you have. I’m here only a few months and in the process of my first approval. I can confirm - very friendly bunch here
  4. BBB Day arrived and to say I’m delighted is an understatement!
  5. Welcome! The RS kits look very polished and was sorely tempted to get one during their Black Friday event.
  6. Depends on the detachment. When reviewing the CRLs, there are links to the relevant forums. At the top of the CRL, look for detachment, this will then have the link to the relevant forum, it is on the main 501st website, but there are sub forums here too with some good information! All great choices! Some kits have a lot of pieces, hence, when they arrive, they arrive in a big brown box
  7. Hello Ryan and welcome! Relatively new myself and only recently decided to start with a TK (Storm Trooper) and am waiting on BBB day (BigBrownBox Day). Definitely take a look at the forums Chris mentioned. There’s an absolutely huge amount of information there, so try not to get bogged down in the granular details to start. Look through the CRLs and think what you’d like and what suits you best and from there, refine your idea. There are also variants of storm trooper / Boba Fett etc based on movie / CRL you apply under - this is the granular detail I mentioned, try not to
  8. So after much deliberation, I have finally started on the path towards ANH TK Build post setup, and somewhat patiently waiting for the kit https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/50439-anh-tk-build-ireland/?tab=comments#comment-708804
  9. Thanks very much! Does it take a day or so for the viewing rights to kick in? Guess I need to do a bit more reading into different materials - didn’t really ever consider ABS vs PVC or know the different until today. I’ll take a look through some of the other threads and see where best to start from.
  10. These aren’t the forums I’m looking for or maybe they are. I assume these are the ones where I need to be approved prior to getting access ???? a goal at least. Do you mould storm trooper pieces? In terms of what I’d like to build, Mandalorian / Trooper (Clone, Storm or First Order, I’m not biased) / Vader - all long term passion projects so not expecting to be done this year or maybe even next - what I intend to do - mix of display and functional for events eventually. - yes, can definitely see they’re not “cheap” to do. On PC builds drop me a message on what you’re
  11. Thanks very much and will definitely be checking in before I spend on anything reckless ???? In general, trying to decide what route to go down, would like to hear some opinions; (I’m looking for a long term hobby on top of passion projects, so thinking long term rather than get it done) For the trooper set; Buying a 3D printer versus buying the final pieces from reputable sources and painting / finishing myself. For the mandalorian set - I’m really taken by the thought of casting this from aluminium - thoughts? Do! When it comes to PC builds, it’s geared far
  12. Yes, found some of that late night reading material - thoroughly impressive detail. Do people tend to buy custom packs that lean towards level 1 and then slowly upgrade overtime, or is there a small industry of personally owned high quality 3D printers out there I need to consider getting in on?
  13. Thanks for the welcome! Trying to decide on scope of what I’d like to build - looking into a Mandalorian Armor set either going down the route of Jango/Boba, or maybe something recent like - Mando / Djarin. Alternatively, the staples of Storm/Clone trooper, Vader - etc. They’re all good.
  14. As the title says, hello! Recently signed up and checking out the forum materials. From Waterford, running out of DIY projects at home, and thought I might revisit an old passion of mine - figuring out how to build a Star Wars costume. Haven’t gotten very far with it in the past, but, never looked for help either! So, bit about me, work in finance, have a wife and daughter. Enjoy hobbies and have tried most things from building a pc to brewing cider. Have seen the 501st at a few events and thought it would be neat to eventually become part of the troop.
