  1. Hey guys! I just stumbled across this thread and thought it would be a cool idea to share my own Karrimor frame. So, I figure this is definitely not the correct size. It's too long, compared to the frames that were used on screen. Width-wise it seems to fit well enough, but to make this look accurate I would have to move the upper bar (the second one from the top) down a few centimeters and cut off everything above it. However, I believe these longer frames can be converted to achieve an accurate look. Mine got two of the red "braces", and the thing looks used already... Less weathering needed. Even though it doesn't look like it in the picture, the tape-measure is aligned with the bottom of the frame.
  2. Gratulation Thomas! Your Trooper looks absolutely fantastic. I'm currently working on the same roadblock private, and your build is definitely a great inspiration and helps a lot to get my bearings... I'll be lucky if I get it to look half as good as yours.
  3. Ah, I see! That makes sense. I honestly never noticed it before... I suppose this particular trooper is the most "in your face" instance of this happening.
  4. Hey guys, While trying to figure out what specific TD I want to portray, I stumbled across a detail that made me go "hmm?". I tried to find any previous discussions about this, but couldn't find anything. Guys, the "Move Along!"-captain has a secret identity! In the very first shot of the roadblock-sequence he can be seen hiding in the background, wearing a black pauldron and trying to act like a private. You can clearly identify him by the markings on the chest plate. However... That means we have been dealing with an impostor, because the captain (or who I always thought was the captain) is walking into frame mere seconds later. In the same shot. That means that the "Move Along!-captain was actually portrayed by two different sets of armor - One that is only seen from behind, and one that is seen from the front. It has to be this way, because the set of armor (Or just the torso) that was used to show him from the front is in the background of the shot when we see him from behind. Sneaky! I can't be the first one to notice this, right? It might be a detail that is only visible in the despecialized versions of ANH, because I think the "Move Along!"-private with the black pauldron was covered up by a CGI Ronto later on. Not quite sure about that, as I don't have the special edition here right now. I used the 4k77 version of the movie to take this screenshot:
  5. Hey guys! One more German ready to join the empire! I'm currently in the process of getting all the parts for my first TD from RS props. I can't wait to start building, and hope I don't ruin it... Hope to share more with you all in the coming months! Cheers, Lukas
