  1. I looked into the garder system for the thighs, but decided to just add a loop of elastic, snapped to the inside of the thighs. I use a 1" black leather belt to hold them up and have never had any issues with them.

  8. Sometimes progress forward needs a step backwards. I think your eye will tell you when the layout feels right. BTW, as a woodworker, I love all your tools and jigs! Your skills will be very helpful for this whole TK build. You will get to your comfort zone before too long.
  9. Congrats on your adventure into the World of White! As you get ready for the armor party, take some time to review other TK builds and watch some videos. Somebody had suggested the TrooperBay Tutorial Videos as a good overview of the assembly process. I agree completely. Mike’s in-depth videos show one way of putting all the puzzle pieces together and he just does it, without any sweating! No panic. No nervousness. He just gets a knife, cuts the pieces and glues them together. I like most of his build process ideas, but I used E-6000 for almost everything instead of his use of super glue and zap-kicker. E-6000 is more forgiving and is removable when it is dried and two years from now if you want to make adjustments. Have fun and be sure to start a build thread!
  10. Welcome to FISD, CTBD! Great name! As Caleb mentioned, E-6000 is the way to go with building TK's! There are some builders who build for others that uses CA/super glue, but the new owner can't change anything in the future without breaking plastic. E-6000 is removable and allows for adjustments and improvements after trooping in it for a while. My TK kit did not include a pipe for the TD. I found 2" gray plastic electrical tubing is the size I needed for my ATA TK kit pieces. After I sanded off the printed name info and shop rash, I sanded it to a gloss finish. Have Fun with your build and ask all the questions you want!
