  1. Shoulder bells: (Left - unfinished right - finished)
  2. Hello there, my amazing friend from the north! I am so glad to see you here.
  3. Thank you. “But wait, there’s more...” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. These first images (if they upload) are how I made the template for the dome for the helmet, and beginning of shaping. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have made the entire suit out of steel. I am trying to get better at posting the images, as well as posting them in order that I made the suit. I think I have the images to size, and I will try to post them a.s.a.p. Thanks for looking!
  6. These first photos are the toes, heels, and my first attempt at the ankle (tarsal?) piece. Since then, I have changed the piece to a more accurate one, but I wanted you to see the process. https://photos.app.goo.gl/gmVjzHZWro5CvMon8 I hope this link inserts the photos, and doesn’t stay a link.... edit: I still suck at inserting photos. Sorry, just look at the link ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  7. I started building my TFA Phasma out of steel in September (?) 2016 after seeing the “Silver Stormtrooper” in the movie, and knowing the character was female. I was going to make a kit supplied by Shawn Thorsson, but noticed that I would have a major problem with inner thigh chafing that would make a Chrome paint job a real issue. I have a background in blacksmithing and making wearable suits of armor out of steel, so I thought to use my knowledge base to make my own Phasma. My biggest issues have been that there are no templates for this suit (or there weren’t when I got started), so I have had to create EVERY part of this suit first out of a paper template, and then cut it out of steel and make it as accurately as I can. The other issue I have is that I am only able to work on this project a few hours a month (and my dad’s smithy is about 80 miles away from my house), so it has taken me almost 2 years to get where I am. I will post some (but definitely not all - I have tons) photos of my build, and I will try to have them in some organized manner. I’ll post the images mostly in the order that I made the pieces. ** right now I’m having a deuce of a time uploading ANY images, and I may have to try this post again at a later time [emoji20]
  8. Fingers! TFA fingers are a fully covered tube which makes grasping things, and bending the fingers difficult. TLJ fingers are a plate that goes on the back of each finger joint. TFA is modeled after C3-PO fingers TLJ looks more like medieval armor. Just something I thought you’d like to know
  9. Thanks for your updates. I enjoy keeping up with what's going on in a galaxy far, far away.
