Hello from Chicago!

Post by elizgalin »

Hello!

This is Liz from Chicago. Recently I ordered my first Stormtrooper TK kit, all set for a Q3 delivery. My hopes are that by the end of the year, I'll be a member of the Midwest Garrison!

Having never really "built" anything before, I've been watching and reading as many tutorials as I can to prepare myself for the task ahead. I'm a bit intimidated by the building process, plus I've got to customize my kit to fit my 5'2, 130-lb frame as best I can. Additionally, I don't have the type of workspace that may be required for some of the more heavy-duty aspects of building this kit. I guess what I'm saying is, I am worried about doing it alone and possibly messing it up.

I realize I'm asking this a tad early given my kit's delivery schedule, but are there any communal build sessions that members partake in? Just wondering if that's a thing. I'd be willing to travel if necessary and I can and will provide as many of my own tools and supplies as I can - as well as homemade cookies, which I AM good at "building." :)
