  1. Oh gosh I had totally forgot about this thread. I've mostly finished it (was packed away during covid) should hope to post some updated photos soon!
  2. Yeah, the helmet construction wasn’t at all fun. But I got there eventually!
  3. Well guys, slow progress is better than no progress... This thing sat stale for a while, a long while. Honestly forgot where I was up to with it, but am now back up to speed. spent the weekend making up all the strapping, made a harness to hold the legs up (with some adjustability) Things left to do, Source boots Source grey undersuit Paint grey detail in ab plate, shoulder bells, under arm connection, and back of bucket Glue TD together, glue belt boxes on Put visor in bucket and pad out Put Snaps on butt plate and split rivet on COD plate I think that's about it. Attached some photos, although photos were taken before I made the strapping, so the strapping in the pictures looks untidy Please let me know what you think! 75446669_957369907952284_4334260534451896320_n by Chris Stewart, on Flickr 74620990_401854760481039_8386902223673622528_n by Chris Stewart, on Flickr 74422247_527086371457431_5124552542893637632_n by Chris Stewart, on Flickr 73495034_463625087580964_5257003420132311040_n by Chris Stewart, on Flickr
  4. Bit of a small update. Kit sat untouched for a while as I re-located across the state and got a new job etc... Excuses aside, I got most of the parts bogged, just need to tidy them up a bit. I have started to strap the kit, used Velcro dots to attach the front neck ring/ yoke, but I think I will replace the Velcro at the front with magnets to hold them together and get rid of the gap in the front there (see picture.) Here are some of the parts that I have bogged, still need to tidy them up a bit. Strapped the chest to the back with webbing, keeps them together so it doesn't have to rely on the yoke/ neck ring to hold them together. strapped the ab and kidney together (strapped it in a similar way to a classic TK) but alas, my overindulgence in beer and doughnuts has seen my belly to be a little rounder than it should be, so this will look a bit better when I shed a bit of weight. (lighting here was poor, so excuse the terrible photo) Grey undersuit is getting made, along with the gloves. Belt boxes have been made, but need to size up the actual belt (as it is a multiple part plastic one) TD and helmet have not really been touched yet. will throw up some more detailed shots of all the parts as I make them.
  5. Alrighty then! Here are a few pictures I have so far. This first one is most of the parts straight out of the box. It took about a week, but I have most of the parts rough trimmed as a start. 20171231_221140 by Chris Stewart, on Flickr 20180107_140614 by Chris Stewart, on Flickr rough assembly of the upper half. More to follow soon. Will keep this thread as updated as possible.
  6. Hi guys, Just recently received my 2 big brown boxes with a fresh pulled set of RMQ concept armor! Going to attempt to keep the build thread updated, and will upload some photos shortly. I have already started to rough trim the parts, and I really love how well Kev's kits go together.
  7. Requesting TK status and access to "Detachment Only" section, just finally finished up and got my ANH Stunt completed and approved! Thanks! http://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=18488
  8. Thanks Jeff. The TD straps overlap the cover plate a little, wasn't sure if it was too big of problem, but I will shorten them up flush with the cover plate. Rivets will be changed shortly!
  9. Thanks! The clips do jab me in the side a bit, though I have only worn it once since I have installed them. I have some of these http://trooperbay.com/costuming-accessories/accurate-nickle-split-rivets-and-washers.htmlI can put in, that's if they're better. I need to rectify the right side, hadn't noticed that till I seen the photos after I had taken it off, so I will be onto that soon!
  10. Hi guys! I have my ATA kit to a wearable stage, so I figured I had better upload some photos of my kit for you all to run your eyes over. Hoping to eventually go for EIB once I get my blaster finished, so some Advice would be fantastic!
