I ordered my Anovos TK kit May 4th 2017….15 months later it arrived!!! During that time I have been reading the FISD forums and patiently waiting to start my own TK build.
BBB Day was August 20th, my dog Kobie was excited as I was! (see photo below)
Since August I have been collecting all the required parts and materials. I officially started my build January 1st. I decided it was time to start a build thread to document progress and ask all my questions towards my goal of approval and joining the 501st and FISD family!

I decided to start with the TD:
Measured the Anovos included pipe and cut at 7.25" (ruler dim way off in photo) - Ukswrath's Anovos build printed out in the background!
Beveled the edge with dremmel
Sanded end caps and control panel edges. Painted slotted pan head screws with semi-gloss black.
Glued end caps (didn't have to give them a hot water bath)
Glued control panel.
TD To Do:
- Drill holes and tap threads for screws
- Re-bend Anovos provided TD aluminum clips
- Attach aluminum clips
