  1. Added putty to the main body And sanded the part that goes near the front and the part near the bolt. Before sanding After sanding During sanding I accidentally ripped off a few layers of print lines on one of them, but spot putty should fix that right up. One question: those two pieces are identical right? they don't seem any different to me, so they should be interchangeable?
  2. Sanded the whole thing with 320 then 400 grit again just to get it more smooth, and added spot putty to the seam. Then sanded the spot putty Sanded the front sight and other thingy that goes on the back idk what its called To sand in between the dip in the sights and under it I used a pen wrapped in sandpaper and a small brush also wrapped in sandpaper. Then added both to the main body.
  3. So I was wondering, do y’all think I should sand the parts, put them together then primer and paint? Or sand, primer, paint then put them together? Thanks
  4. Glued the barrel and the base together with super glue, then sanded the seam to clean up the excess glue. I'll add a bit of spot putty to the seam later.
  5. Barrel sanded Before: After sanding Just gotta pick out all the little plastic strands on the inside, then it'll be ready for filler primer along with the base. Definitely going much faster than I thought, gonna have to change the title now lol. How do you change titles?
  6. Starting working on the base Here's it before sanding: And here's it after 80 grit: After 220 grit I accidentally cracked it somehow during sanding. Easy fix, I just used some super glue later and a little sanding. 320 grit 400 grit Got that done in a day, so maybe this build won't be as slow as I thought.
  7. Handle was a little sticky, so I sanded it down and repainted it and it was good. Masked off the bolt and painted it silver Masked off the t-tracks, scope, back cap and handle, then painted them semi-gloss black. Then it was unmasked, and I glued on the power cylinders, and here's it now. I'm currently debating on whether i should weather it lightly and make some sort of lenses for the scope. I think it's looking pretty good right now though, and I like it.
  8. MWB (medium white box) day! Got it from trooper @trooper96 here on FISD. Thank you Bryan!
  9. Yep, decided to take everyone’s advice and got on the ATA bucket waitlist instead.
  10. huh, I looked again and it seems like the mesh is only missing in the right mic tip
  11. https://www.ebay.com/itm/274929518254?hash=item40031386ae:g:7LsAAOSwZuNhL2Dm saw this. Does it look good? I noticed the mic tip mesh seems to be missing and the left tube stripes are a little crooked. Would like some advice on how it looks and if it would be worth it.
  12. It seems like you have to be a 501st member to view it, which I am not.
  13. I remember there was some sort of chart showing how many approved people per costume or something like that. I’d be grateful if someone could point me towards it. Thanks
  14. first coat of flat black on the blaster. i masked of the silver rivets and screws i added so they would show through
  15. to combat the sqeakyness of the plastidip surface, I coated the armor in this silicone spray: here's a test of the sprayed shoulders vs. the non-sprayed thighs
  16. https://www.etsy.com/listing/692184744/stormtrooper-helmet-stormtrooper-white?ref=shop_home_active_25&frs=1&crt=1&variation0=1641137882 looks pretty accurate to me, what do y’all think?
  17. added a clip detail a safety switch the bolt stripe sanded down the t-tracks i sanded right through the top track, so I gotta fill that with bondo now. and the new resin power cylinders came in it's much more sturdy and durable than the previous 3d-printed one I had.
  18. i decided to upgrade my rubies e-11 with some more greeblies to make it more accurate. i made them out of polystyene, toothpicks and random stuff. im planning on sanding down the T-tracks some more. it did have the power cylinders, but they were 3d printed and kept breaking. Im getting new ones soon. im gonna repaint it after sanding the t-tracks more.
