TK kit questions

Post by Derpatron » Wed Aug 31, 2022 6:10 pm

Hi all, I am considering getting a Trooper Bay ANH TK kit. The kits are sized for 5’7-5’11 at 170lbs. I am 6’2 at 200lbs. Is this going to be a struggle to make it fit? Are there kits that are sized closer to my height and weight? Tristan perhaps? Or is that the standard for TK kits and everyone basically needs to make them fit?

I'm not 100% familiar with the TrooperBay kit, but if it's "screen-derived", it would be the same as Tristan's.

I've seen TK/TD troopers of all sizes, so it's always possible to make the kit fit. FISD (whitearmor.net) is a great resource for building a TK. If you haven't already been over there, check them out.

Hey there Steve, I agree, Whitearmor.net is the place to go for great TK info. in fact here's a thread you may want to check out on just that subject. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/ ... ent-456221

I have AM armor. I believe it is made for taller troopers. I am 6’2 185 and it has been a great kit. I got it in 2018. It is durable, has held up very well, and easy to work with. I had to trim up quite a bit so I am sure it would fit your frame. Let me know if you would like to take a look at it sometime and we can make arrangements.

Thanks guys. I’ll definitely be on the white armor site. I spoke with a TK at TCC that is my same build roughly and he used Tristan’s kit. I’ll see about going that route first as I prefer to try and support locals first.

I would recommend you check out the White Armor forums for other sources. Tristan's wife recently had a baby and he has to put some work into his table.

While I am not positive, the White Armor forums may also tell you where the vendor is located if you want to keep as close to Arizona as you can and within the states. Scott can speak better to that than I can. He's the shiny!

I would go woth the AM armour, the other kits are going to leave big gaps in your legs and arms.
