  1. Thanks, I’ll keep looking for better screws. Haven’t had time to clean up the paint on the teeth just yet and I only extend the paint to what I have seen in other builds. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Did a little work on the bucket the last couple days. Also do the screws below look ok or are they too big. That’s the best I’ve been able to find locally. Keith S. Tampa Bay Squad. DZ-47282
  3. I do have one question about the TD I am seeing different sizes for the total length anywhere from 184-190mm. Below is what I’m at with the caps on. Keith S. Tampa Bay Squad. DZ-47282
  4. Steady rolling now after a Squad mate (wingnut65) came over last night and looked over my progress so far. Lots of glue drying on the table, mostly snap plates, thigh elastic and the sides of the sniper knee. Keith S. Tampa Bay Squad. DZ-47282
  5. I’m a total newb to ABS so I’m Using E6000. I have a tendency to glue myself to anything/everything when working with CA lol. Keith S. Tampa Bay Squad. DZ-47282
  6. Lol thought I was going to be a lucky one. Put both in the freezer for a few hours and they came apart nicely. Glad it was only the internal strips holding them together. Keith S. Tampa Bay Squad. DZ-47282
  7. Thanks for the heads up Tony I thought for sure that I might have gotten them mixed up but I did get my kit after the whole shin gate thing lol and I doubled checked with your build and a couple other builds with the newer kits to make sure, oh well into the freezer they go.
  8. As promised here are the pictures with everything glued. Just need dome guidance on the shins before glue on the cover strips. Let me know if anything needs adjusted. Thanks in advance. Biceps Forearms Thighs, will be fixing the gaps at some point. Shins, what a pain. cant tell if i have them mixed up. i tried to follow the flow with the long edge on te outside and the bump inside. Might jsut take them to my next troop and have one of the other TK's take a look at them for me.
  9. Thank you, I'm finding the Shins to be a pain right now. Once I glued evethying and test fitted that is when I planned to looks at the areas that i will remove the return edge.
  10. Wow been a while since my last update. Work and family life has limited my posting of updates to the forum but I have been working in the background on my armor. I’m pretty active on Facebook with my garrison brothers and sisters who have been point me in the right direction. Let me know if you notice anything glaring before I move on. I will be working on the snipper knee and thigh ammo this week and gathering elastic and nylon. lost the photos of the completed pieces due to a phone failure so I’ll be retaking those and uploading them soonest. Thanks. Keith Biceps Thighs and forearms Forearms little test fit of the thighs
  11. Posting these a little later then planed was traveling for work last week, but here are the thighs tapped and fitted. Should start on sanding all the pieces at some point this week. Little progress will be done over the next couple weeks of this month with traveling again next week and April is shot with travel for pretty much the whole month. Kind of funny that the kit will take just as long to build as it did to show up at my door. Left Front: Left Back: Right Front: Right Back:
  12. Thank you, the majority of the return edge on the wrist end is gone, just need to file down a couple spots for a smooth finish.
  13. Was able to get a couple hours of work done on the forearms tonight with lots of lines drawn and tape used. It doesn’t look like it in the photos but when pressed into a rounder shape the seams line up better and they fit pretty good. They will more than likely need a hot water bath also. I traced some lines at the elbow end of the right ones where they will need to be trimmed to line up. Just like with the biceps they will need a little sanding before gluing starts. Let me know what you think. Left Front Left Back Right Front Right Back
  14. Finally had some time tonight to work on the biceps and I think they may be for assembly, let me know what you think. I’m going with internal strips on all the butt joints just to be safe. Left front Left Back Right Front Right Back
  15. Thanks Chris, that was one of the suggestions, align at the knee and then trip off at the ankle. Still working on the arm parts right now. Just got back from a weekend away with the family so I’ll be back at it over the next few days.
