    Help and Advice and Quotes and Info needed

    Hi folks!

    I'm new here but forgive me for not posting in the Introductions board. Basically an acquaintance of mine is a Vader impersonator here in the UK and I've decided to look into 'Fetting up' and join his dark empire.

    Soooo, I'm looking for all the info I can get regards where to get THE best parts from etc. Ideally I could do with a list of suppliers and if any of you do commissions, then hit me up with a quote.

    I'm fully prepared to dip into my wallet for the right bits, but also handy with an airbrush so don't mind doing some work myself if it's advantageous - but I have little capacity to manufacture parts myself. I'm based in a small town near Stoke in the UK so any US craftsmen will have to quote for shipping internationally.

    As it's early days I'm trying to gather as much info so I can make informed decisions, so any help would be marvellous!!

    thanks!

    If your in the UK he may be your best option due to shipping charges. Personally I would go with fettpride, but that's just my opinion.
    whether you pick either of those guys, be prepared for a long wait time; probably at least 6 months.

    I've bought all my armour from Bobamaker and I've been very happy with his products and customer service. I can't say enough good things about Daz. He does have a long waiting list (as do other others), so even if you ordered it today, it will likely be several months before it arrives. On the bright side, it gives you lots of time to do your research and work on the soft parts (and other components) of your build.
