Don't forget, you will also need to buy/order a ton of other stuff besides the armor. You will find information about what you need at whitearmor, but generally it is stuff like:
Boots
Undersuit
Gloves
White textile belt
Neck seal
Black leather
Blaster (optional)
Fans for helmet ventilation (You will want this)
E6000 glue
Clamps (lots of them)
Strong magnets
Paint (Black, blue, gray)
Assorted elastics in black and white
About 40-50 snaps
Split rivets
Masking tape
...

So there is plenty to do while you are waiting for your armor.
Good luck with your build!

Yeah, I have come to understand there are lots of small parts and stuff beside the armor itself.
But RS apparently has a combined kit, whichs includes a full armor as well as parts and scraps. :)

Update:

I have now managed to transfer funds for the actual purchase - got somewhat delayed, but at least I have the money now.
I have also taken all my relevant measurements (exaggerated a bit, just to be sure) and will likely send them my order/details tomorrow.
Things are getting real! :D

Update:

Order for a "Full Stormtrooper Commission" placed at RS Prop Masters.
In the end, I decided going for the PVC-version. :)

Long time, no posts!

Alright, a short update:
Due to their busy Christmas-schedule, my RS-armor has been somewhat delayed.
But the good news is that I have a determined date when it should arrive - January 6:th. (stormie)

Mine is scheduled to be built on january 8:th. It´s a long wait, but i choose to see it like i´ve made the right choice regarding my armor. I tell myself that they are busy because they deliver stuff of high standards. At least i hope they do....

Don't talk about a long wait. :)
Some people wait 2 years for their armour.

I can imagine...
Regardless, I'm really happy with my end results - now only step remains: get some proper photos sent in for evaluation. :)
