  1. Drew the cut lines for the forearms. I pretty much did this where the ABS appeared to be vacuumformed against the mold and not the support of the mold. Rough trimmed the pieces and sanded down the greeblies. Now since I wanted to not wait forever for the E6000 to dry, I am using Super Glue on most parts. The greeblies I still use E6000 since the Super Glue does not adhere to the resin as easily. Quick test fit to make sure my hand could make it through the front part of the forearm. This is the most constricting part of the forearm. Decided to trim a little more off the back inside of the forearm to allow for the gaskets. Removed magnets after 5 minutes. Looks pretty good. Still have some minor trimming to do. Completed forearms with greeblies. I will do some minor trimming and sanding before I paint. Going to wait until all pieces are done before final sanding and painting.
  2. Anyone know how to change the title of this build thread? I am not going to build Cardinal since there will never be a CRL. It is a shame, but what can I do? Anyways, I am going to build a TFA FOTK Jakku variant (the one with the big pack, big gun, and vest.) Unfortunately, I am not sure if I will ever get the remainder of my armor from MIMIC. I cannot wait forever so I am going to complete with KBs armor and match the paint when I am done. Starting with the Forearms. These were supplied by KB Props. Going to cut these tonight and glue them together tomorrow.
  3. It needs to be black. You typically have to dye it.
  4. Great detailed account of your build. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Looking good. Are you going to be going for 501st HWT approval? If so, I would not veer too far from the approved packs and what is shown in the CRL. Just want to make sure you get approved when you submit. Other then that, it is looking great and keep posting.
  6. I received the Blaster(s) and Rifle this week: F-11D w/ lights F-11D w/o lights SE-44C Here are some photos. No photos of second half of build yet, since I have not had time to work on my own stuff. Building too many packs and other peoples armor right now. haha. Since they are 3D printed, they will take some finishing work. Next thing is I have to decide if they are going to be red for Capt. Cardinal....or keep them white?
  7. Good luck on your build. Post plenty of pictures. Can't wait to see your progress.
  8. Welcome aboard. Nice to see a fellow Garrison mate.
  9. It is official. I am going to build Captain Cardinal and will just go with solid red boots. Next week, I will begin work on the KB Props armor and post all progress on here as I promised JSIN. Below is the only "Official" reference picture. I just thought this picture was cool. It is not an official reference picture (below pic) Once complete, I will be getting the armor painted by an Automobile painter/detailer with a clearcoat. This will make it very shiney and protect it.
  10. I cannot wait to finally finish this build. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Well, since MIMIC took my money and ran, i went to KB Props and JSIN. They were AWESOME. Not only did they help all of us that were taken advantage of by MIMIC, they supplied the remaining armor at a very low cost and had it available immediately. Thank you KB Props. Below are the photos of the raw pieces from KB Props. I still have to trim, sand and paint these pieces, but they look awesome.
  12. Not sure. First I have heard that it will go to MEPD. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. So is there a decision on the boots and blaster color? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
