  1. Okay, thanks for the great advise. I didn’t wrap my magnets cause a lot of post I saw people just put painters tape on them, and I’m also impatient. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Shoulders: Before and after cuts side by side for reference. How does this look? Just a note as well I read somewhere the shoulders outside rib swoops towards the side they go on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Shoulders: I drew the cut line around the bell of the shoulder where the smooth and bumpy mold line meet. I drew the side of the shoulder cut line as close to where the excess plastic begins to curve, so that I have room to adjust. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Biceps: Here are few more bicep pics. One shows the front cover strip area and the others are top views left and right biceps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for the advise CoatserTK. I am planning on gluing inner covet strips for everything and that is a good idea to tape everything down then start with the inside. For my first gluing I had a problem. I tried to glue the two forearm halves together and when I put the magnets on it shifted the return edges because the magnet is a little too big.

  6. B biceps: I’m holding my left hand up to show orientation, which if you can tell this is the backside view of the biceps and the return edge is so substantial in order to fit my biceps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. A) forearms together showing 7.5mm on each side to make a 15mm return edge to glue on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. A) forearms Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I received my armor set 2 years ago and completed the helmet immediately but then my armor sat for 2 years. To catch you all up so far I’ve: A) cut forearms out and left 7.5mm on the return edge as to fit the 15mm cover strip. cut biceps out which was a huge pain because I had to remove the bottom return edge completely out to fit my arm. Also I kept forgetting which one goes where. C) roughly cut sniper knee out, and I’m gonna need help. I’ll post photos and label each one so you all can see. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Okay! This is my first TK build. This is my first thread on the forum, so I want this post to be clear and concise oriented to newbies like myself. Armor: ATA Helmet: ATA Belt & Holster: TrooperBay Boots: Imperial Boots Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I really like your build thread and I’m using as much info as possible for my ATA. Right now I’ve glued my first cover strip on the forearm but unlike you I tried to glue the two sides together and I ended up getting glue everywhere. Thank you for the amazing reference pics and keep em coming. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I think it looks good I'm also working on my first helmet too, and how do you know which side the tube stripes go, like is there a certain number on each side? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Crongradulations Alex! Your armor looks good. I'm from Kansas also Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This was a really inspiring thread. You've turned someone's failure into a success and that is really inspiring to me. I'm still in early research stages and haven't even decided what armor to get. You've deconstructed a suit and built it back up and I think that I would appreciate the armor more if I had to do that because the extra care that you've put into it. Thanks man and good job!
