  1. It's been ages since I started the build! I've been busy with my personal life and works, but decided to get back on the build to get my minds off a bit. I started modeling the bucket to get the most accuracy, especially since we have 360 reference in hand. It's actually my first time modeling something that's not natural, so I've been struggling a bit with using one of the worst program (Maya, since I am not comfortable enough with CAD) to do the job, but I guess it's getting there and I am happy about it. There are a whole lot to do left, but I just wanted to show you all to say that the project is still alive.
  2. Will do! After hours of digging, I think I now have at least 3 different scenes of each sides in full body shots saved for my reference folder. I’m glad that they are having some good amount of screen time on the animation. And the sweet new backpack!
  3. Yup. I am going to tackle it down slowly. Thankfully, it’s not using any grill or mesh details so at least the surface prepping after the modeling-the toughest part-would be fairly easy compared to the movie TKs. Would this need a CRL discussion thread? I’m sure I won’t be the only one who are interested in this armor.... hopefully.... Here’s the current status of the torso. Chopped the yoke out to test fit the chest. I still need to move around the details to get the accurate locations.
  4. To be honest, I was one of those who were skeptical about the new TK design in Resistance. But it grew on me without knowing and when I saw the new backpack for FOTK, I immediately thought I should make one. I already had a FOTK kit that I got from someone but it wasn't in a great shape since the previous owner made a mistake on some parts, which was a reason why I got it for VERY cheap price. I am a very short and small so I had to make major modifications anyways. The problems were that I had to make modifications without touching important details, which is so much harder in FOTK than OTTK. But it seemed like making animation version armor would take about the same amount of work even though I would need to scratch build some of the parts. Making FOTK smaller: new 3D printed forearm, heat bending parts into shape, moving some detail parts to make them look proportionally placed, new 3D printed helmet to be proportional, etc... Making animation FOTk: same above, but without moving detail parts and instead, scratch building parts(probably 3D model them and print). I will try to model the new helmet and the forearm designs myself and see how it goes. I gathered some reference photos and this video shows the turnaround of Commander Pyle, whose armor is near identical to regular troops. And this image shows some good details of hard-to-see areas like inside of the forearm. Here are the photos of the current state. I will be cutting yoke down and make it to be streamlined with back and rebuild the ab piece from scratch.
  5. Oh my god this is so gorgeous! I'm sure the people in the future will discover this and believe that Star Wars is in fact, non-fiction! Are you doing the helmet also in steel?
  6. http://www.shoretrooper.co.uk/ A little bit of search got me this.
  7. Yes! An update! How do you think about trimming the neck line of the chest piece and pushing it up a bit? That’s what I did for my OTTK and that made my torso look smaller. I would wanna try bending the yoke a bit inwards for my kit but idk if that would help a lot.
  8. Ooooh I was definitely looking for a short FOTK thread and you were the one! I accidentally got a kit(someone gave me an amazing offer) and had to get some help resizing without major makeover. I am thinking about 3D-printing the forearms because 1. Outer parts are missing from my kit, 2. It looks ridiculously big on me and resizing is basically impossible. I hope you are going well with your build!!
  9. This was faster than I thought! Thank you so much for the suggestions. I will work on the details soon and I hope it would become more accurate and better fitting for Centurion!
  10. No need to hurry! Please take your time. I totally see that there are so much more new posts being posted recently. Thanks for your time!
  11. I have noticed that the body armor was mounted a bit low, so I took another photo with it mounted higher. Also the helmet padding edited to sit higher and thigh armors are reduced in width to remove the extra room and make holster to not be diagonally hang from the belt.
  12. For the models used in the movie, I am assuming they used paper for the costumes for the better suiting texture for smaller scale. The netting seems like it is just another layer of laser cut paper, not actual netting. For full scale costume I think you do not need to follow actual medium! Hope this helps!

  14. I have cut the lips of the buckets to fit them into shape. (Blue line indicates where I have made a cut) They were overlapping with too much gap, so I trimmed down a little more on 1 quart buckets to make the good width of band like shown in Marmit backpack: After the rough fitting, the 1 quart buckets were too long, so I have trimmed along the 4oz line of the buckets. (50ml line pictured. But by testing, it turned out to be needing more trimming than the 50ml line, so the 4oz line was used as final trim line) I am happy with the shape they make right now. I will glue them together soon and update more here. Please feel free to give me suggestions!
  15. Hi everyone, I was always hoping to build Spacetrooper backpack since I have seen the screenshot of two tiny Stormtroopers in hangar with new looking backpacks. I slowly gathered up some materials that would be most screen accurate by using some help from topics like: http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/9655-space-pack-resource-topic/ and http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=25421&highlight=spacetrooper (*RPF topic) Most of the reference comes from Marmit series unproduced Spacetrooper figure (http://www1.odn.ne.jp/~cdt96010/marmit-vader.htm) From searching, I have discovered a post suggesting that the lower portion of the backpack resembles the shape of the escape pod studio scale model from production of ANH. It has been made out of paint mixing buckets so I decided to use paint buckets for this build. Most of the materials were gathered from hardware store except AMT's Texaco tanker scale model, which was from ebay. Two 1 quart buckets and two 16 ounce buckets A Texaco tanker model (No end parts pictured) 1" OD dishwasher hose (Many people seem to use ribbed hose for this part but seeing the picture of Joe Johnston with the backpack, this part seems to be a smooth, rubbery tube) 1-1/4 in polypropylene pipes (Two wall pipes should be replaced with a p-trap. I was thinking of making perfect U shape with them but figured out just using an imperfect p-trap shape wouldn't be a problem.)
