Read at one time but cannot find it again the procedure to get "guest trooper" status for a brand new costume not yet approved by GML?

Re: Gunner Helmet Build Advice

Thanks, I was able to get one in a jiffy from JediRobeAmerica. A bit $$$ but a necessary accessory! Was a hit at Celebration on the last day--lots of selfies with me. Only gunner there as far as i could see.

Difinitive Blaster References

Starting to collect screen correct blasters. Due to my schedule, I may not do a lot of trooping, so I don't need the rubber based ones, resin is fine, but I want them to be accurate--no questions about approval or even levelling up. Where can I find the definitive references on each blaster, esp. th...

GLG Gunners--Helmet help & poll

To all GLG Gunners. Putting together a WTF gunner helmet. In the trimming process right now. Could use some advice, esp. with fabricating the shelf on the jawbone and "filling" the gaps. Also, how do you have your helmet finished? Flat, satin,or high gloss? If I eventually get to troop with other GL...

Re: OT TIE Pilot Questions

Just got the Russian gas mask hoses today! No more stiff hoses pushing the front of my helmet up! Thanks for the suggestion. I was thinking, since I have a new TIE helmet coming from WTF, why not turn my old one into an AT-AT driver? Just a thought.

OT TIE Pilot Questions

I just ordered an OT TIE helmet from WTF, which will be the base of a correct TIE outfit. I have a Marco TIE helmet and armor that will probably never pass muster, but I would like to get it looking the best it can get (though my former students loved it) before I sell it to purchase the approvable ...
