First build! Soon...

Post by Skugla »

Hey everyone. I have been lurking here for a while, and made a small introduction some months back. Anyway, I was debating with myself what armorer to choose for my first armour (a TD) and after TM assured me his armour would fit ( I am on the tall side) I ordered a TD armour from him, and a Doopydoo blaster ^^

Today the box arrived!

Nicely packed, the box was a little banged up, but nothing damaged :D

Image

Being my first build I decided that TM should put the helmet together, I really don't want to mess that up ;)

Image

Now the thing is you will have to wait a bit for the build pics 'cuse I am in the process of losing some extra weight and I wanna get down to my goal before building. It's like a good incentive right!?

Welll cya all soon

Ty guys.

Well, my name is Mikael and I live in Eskilstuna, Sweden with my wife and two kids. I have been a Star wars fan since 1982 when I saw Empire strikes back at a friends house :)

I have wanted to make a costume for ages, but something has always gotten in the way, which was a good thing, beacuse I found the 501st. I could have easily bought something from ebay if I hadn't r( so lucky me :D

Right now I am trying to get my daughter to like Star Wars (she's three) and it's going good :D she loves r2-d2, Leia and chewbacca.

We were at the sci- fi convention in Gothenburg earlier this year and that was a blast, my daughter absolutely fell in love with woman dressed as Padmé and couldn't talking about her for a long time :)

I'm making a TD beacuse they rock! If I would ever do a rebel uniform it would be a Y- wing pilot 'cuse that's the coolest rebel fighter XD

I'm not that far from my weight goal, I want to get under 100kg (currently 105 down from 117) so maybe in the end of summer I'll get this thing together ^^

Greetings Cadet! :)

Nice to hear the Gothenburg fair made an impression on you and your daughter.

Looking forward to follow your build and to troop with you. :)

I'm guessing you've already found your way over to http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/ (FISD). If you haven't you should put it high up on your to do list. :)
At FISD you'll find all the information you need (and more) on building a... oh, wait... TD you say... Well... then you also want to head over to MEPD (http://forum.mepd.net/) for all your dirty deeds. ;)
(But seriously. Both MEPD and FISD will be great resources for you. See you over there too. :) )

See you around!
///Maxim (of Gothenburg)

Good choice going with TM. It's a real treat to build.

I'm assuming you're already on MEPD but please join us at FISD as well. Whilst you may be building a TD, we have a lot in common, and FISD holds a lot more content for building the main armour (just ignore the TK specific parts) so I'm positive that you will find something useful there.

Nice to hear! :)
See you around.

(Weird. Just noticed half of my previous post doesn't show on TapaTalk. Most curious.)
