  1. The two holes are for the shoulder bells, but dont know if I cut on the line and fix them with snaps AB with boxes Biceps shoulder bells I marked where the pauldron would sit Shins front side back Cod is TFA and not the TLJ, will change it later Spats TD TD hoked on the back and fixed with magnets Forearms SE-44C (add red detail later) I hope you can see everything in the pictures.
  2. Google Drive Pics I have now first photographed all the parts that I have worked on. Next time I'll put it on again and add photos. With the Cod it is for TFA and not TLJ (a new one will be obtained later) and I am still trying to fix the shoulder bells properly. The red detail is added later on the SC-44E Are there any comments / suggestions as to what I still need to revise?
  3. I finished the shins (inner side) With the shin on the right, I need advice on the two boxes. When I open the shin, a crack appears which is no longer visible when I close it. But since it is being painted, it will break again. But it has to be seamless. How can I fill the gap without it breaking when opening? Filled the little holes/bubbles The TD will held in place with two magnets. After widening the abdomen, I adjusted the TD and sanded the AB boxes again Most of the time wasted gluing the magnet back on and letting the filler dry. I sanded the holster so that it fits better and lengthened the back so that the chest fits better. The chest / back has to be revised and somehow the pauldron still has to be attached. Work my way up from the bottom up again ...
  4. So I took some pictures to check with you if its alright or need more improvements. And had to expand the abdomen and hope it looks more symetrical after the glue is dry. right thight with un mounted holster from Dan. (does it have to be seamless?) left thight Left and right shin left and right forearm there is a 1 cm gap at the end of the rail, it seems a bit short in my opinion or does it have to look like this? The boxes are held in place by two plastic screws, just like the ab boxes I've got in touch with a lokal car painter and probably they will do the paintjob. Before the painting, is it better to install all clips and the rails (forearm) first or paint them separately like the box on the forearms? Next issue is the Abdomen with chest and the shoulderbell and bizeps connection, but one by one ...
  5. Thanks, it is my first (ever) build and hope its correct and helpful. So, I had some time again and could continue to work. I puttied the left shin. With the upper body I tried to achieve more mobility and to optimize the overall appearance. The chest and back are fairly tight and chafe as you move. I attached some foam from the inside (temporarily) to prevent this. The TD will be glued on and then the seams filled (grammar?) The belt boxes are cut to size and (in my opinion) finished so far. Maybe adjust a bit? A lot of time was spent filling and sanding...
  6. Thats what I meant with "...connect the cod and the backplate with a black rubber...". I wrote and translated it weird Ok thank you, will give it a try.
  7. Finally I'm back... I was able to "save" the shin and have to continue filling and sanding. I had saome ABS scraps to backing the hole and filled with bondo Getting dressed is really an art in itself and it's not really comfy yet. I can't put the helmet on myself and my arms get something abvoe my chest that I can only adopt the typical C3PO posture The biceps are still hanging too low and the shoulderbell caught under them. I have to shorten the thighs because they hit the cod and I think they should sit higher. The TD is not correctly centered , so has to check the bracket again. I want to connect the cod and the backplate with a black rubber so that they don't stick out. Seems farther from the target than originally thought. Little baby steps, but at least steps at all and it's still exciting and entertaining to build and find solutions!
  8. Today, for the first time, I wore everything at the same time. I noticed that it still has to be reworked in some places for freedom of movement (can't take off the helmet on my own). Then a misfortune happened when I tried to attach the boxes to the left shin ... For whatever reason it broke right there where I spread the ABS paste between the box and the shin (suddenly seemed brittle). Hasn't happened to me before with the ABS paste and I can't explain it to myself. Now I have to save it somehow or, in the worst case, look for a replacement... Then I prepared the boxes for the abdomen and have to gain some distance. I'm a little upset that it happened and have to get over it, before something goes wrong because of the mood.
  9. I have adjusted the spats as far as possible, fine tuning is still missing, so that the upper edge is straight. At first I only put on the boxes from the left Shin for optics. since they should lie on seamlessly, they still have to be sanded a little. To attach the holster I made a construction of ABS scraps and Chicago screws ... will follow in the next post with further progress. At this point, thank you very much for your feedback! I appreciate it very much
  10. I decided to highlight the indentations on the yoke more clearly and cut them into thirds. The distance between the indentations is about 4mm and, after drying, the upper and lower areas must be filled with ABS paste. The magnets on the abdomen are now finally fixed and it can be buckled on easily. To wear it, it will held with a suspender as soon as the TD is adjusted and I know how it looks . Tried to to shape the TD so that it rests better. At the moment I'm still sitting on the left shin with the spat, right thigh to get the (Ddan's) holster in place. the greeblie on the Forearms looks kind of small or is it right that theres a gap towards the elbow? I have to get used to taking a few more photos of the work steps. Will check the other WIPS again before my next visit the workshop ... See you next time
  11. I did a lot of research, looked at WIPS and measured it several times ... unfortunately all of this doesn't help if you, for whatever reason, write down the measurements upside down and glue the parts together incorrectly ... In the meantime, almost everything has been fixed again. Therefore the progress is manageable right Thigh the inner seam will be velcroed later. right shin unfortunetaly a stress fracture during test fitting had to glue in a reinforcement, hope it can be saved ... sanded the shoulder bell and marked for later attachement the pauldron will be attached witch magnets later Maybe someone can help me. I trimmed the spats and tried them on. One is too long and I have to shorten it, the other is clearly too small. Does it have to be closed flush or may a gap remain? The gap would be (way) bigger than in the picture.
  12. yesterday I continued to supply some parts with ABS paste to close gaps. When it dried and can be processed, it is sanded and puttied again at ... Wearing it feels good so far. I fixed the back of the torso with magnets to see if it fits the size. Could be made a little narrower, but I still have to think carefully about how to close it at the back (with the TD). Brilliant as I am, I forgot to photograph the back I trimmed the TD and have to adjust it in time, which I will do as soon as I have a plan on how to solve the torso. Upper body rests a little, continue with the legs With the thighs, I'm still unsure how to adjust them or whether I have to cut something ... The shins (and spats ...) right leg (spats a bit too tight) left leg (spats very large)
  13. Edit: Regarding the cod piece, a member of the German garrison told me that the TFA cod piece would be fine for a basic approval. I will decide to use that first and look for the TLJ cod later, as I am aiming for EIB status (if i don't mess up). so i started to work my way from "Head to toes" I've already cut out the small middle part Quick test, what it would look like. My Plan is, to drill holes for the small rubber bands. But not sure if these are strong enough, so looking for an alternative.
  14. Cut the forearms already. Its enough or need to cut more and the cod piece... mhh not sure if its the one for TLJ would it be enough to cut it like this, or is ist a totaly different form?
