  7. These are our 'go to' storage boxes:- https://www.argos.ie/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Search?storeId=10152&catalogId=15051&langId=111&searchTerms=145+LITRE&authToken=425442235%2CPWBEO%2FIArT4%2FQlWuE3ktnnIHMCI%3D Just have to drill a hole beneath one of the handles, thread a length of rope though, tie a knot inside and thread a piece of pipe to the other end for a handle or similar (Qualpex works well)
  8. So good to see you back Alan. Sorry to hear about your illness and hope it is not causing you too much pain, how is your mobility?, If there is anything any of us can do to help you get back to trooping please let us know. Also I should mention we have a members Facebook chat if you use fb would like to be added, it is useful for updates (in addition to this forum) and a bit of banter, if not though I totally understand, fb and group chats are not everyone's cup of tea. Here is a link to my facebook page if you would like to link up:- https://www.facebook.com/welshchrisinireland/ Sounds like you have been busy with your figure collection, you must show us some pics, would love to see them, also if you start doing customs would be great to see them too.
  9. No blaster is fine, I might be able to get a lend of one off someone for you
  10. Signing up myself, Tina and the Kids, Hazel, Conor & Lily. Costumes to be decided.
  11. Ah yes I see your application in the GML's email now Todd, Andi or John will go through your application and get back to you as soon as they can, best of luck with clearance Many of us use a voice amplifier by a crowd called T-ramp, they are very good, you can find them on Facebook, the guys name is Paul, he is a very nice person to deal with. Helmet fans are also essential for when you get very not in your armour on troops, they will prevent your lenses from fogging up. One or two 5v blower fans will do it run off a powerbank. I will see if I can find you on fb if you use it and can send you some useful links.
  12. Hi Tod and welcome to the forum, an excellent choice of costume. We look forward to receiving your clearance pics, any questions don't hesitate to ask
  13. Hello and welcome, Keep an eye on our troop calender, if a troop becomes available you are more than welcome to sign up if a place is available, if not some of us could meet up with you anyway to say hello if we are available, let us know what part of Ireland you will be visiting
  14. Both flat or bubble lenses are fine for clearance https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TI_TIE_Pilot_ANH#Version One
  15. Hi and welcome to the forums Mark
  16. Welcome to the forums, Stormtrooper is an excellent choice of costume, your model-making skills will come in very useful if you decide to build one. As Shane has said we can offer great advice if you need it and point you in the right direction in terms of kits and where to get them
  17. Hello Karl and welcome to the forums, Nice choice of costume, clones are great, Here is a link to the various detachments of the 501st, there you will find the one pertaining to clones, hope it helps https://www.501st.com/resources.php

Gutted, I am going to have to sign down from this, Hospital rang me yesterday for a ultrasound on my shoulder in Cork and won't be back until late, I have been waiting on this since last May when I damaged my rotator cuff, I have asked can it be rescheduled but they said I will lose my appointment. Sorry folks

  21. Signing up, TK, X-Wings and bit of Cylon for good measure! Also weapons and props
  22. Hello Barry and welcome to the forums. Shoretrooper is an excellent choice.

Good luck with your build and may the force be with you, oops I mean 'long live the Empire'
