TM TK build (ANH stunt)

Recommended Posts

Got my kit some weeks ago and started building a week ago. Here are pictures from day 1.

I got help from TK-3664 (Thanks!) and we got far on the forearms, biceps and the helmet!

And here is more pictures! Day 2!

 

We did alot this time too. The second ear piece is done, the helmet has been painted a lot, we glued more armor parts and some parts were made ready for gluing.

All cover strips are also done!

 

Again big thanks to TK-3664 for helping me build this TM suit :)

Left shin glued in front

The coverstrip is short becasue these are XL shins (75mm longer). They will be cut to fit me. I need some longer than usual and some shorter than xl.

Super cool! The photographic lighting makes everything look so clean I want to caress the plastic :)

Your making very good progress but I have a suggestion about the left ear cap. The way you have it is too long and the lower edge that is designed to be trimmed is left on as seen below.

What I suggest you do is trim it more (shown in RED) and it will fit and look much better.

Keep up the good work guys :duim:

Great job so far. What strength (pull lbs.) magnets did you get? Is that strength effective enough? How many magnets do you think would be enough to have for your build? Thanks. I have TM armor on the horizon and can't wait to get started.

Hi Paul :)

 

The ear is not finished yet, and have to be trimmed there :)

It is good to see you giving feedback during my build!

That will help a lot. Scream out if you see something that needs more work.

Thanks!

 

I bought some magnets from trooperbay and lend some from the fellow tk that helps me with the build. But I got 40 magnets on the way and they have strength N48 and that will hold. But I would not go any lower than 48.

and you can never have enough magnets! :P

Build day 3!

 

As usual I got help from TK-3664 and this time TK-8505 joined in too. TK-3664 did an amazing paint job this time just as the last time.

Now the helmet is almost done on the outside. All parts for the arms are glued, and almost all parts for the legs are glued in front.

Chest, shoulders, back plate, abdomen plate, kidney plate and butt plate are all trimmed. The shoulder straps are glued to the chest plate too.

30 snap plates are also done and I will glue them and the last thigh this weekend.

TK-8505 is working on the boots and the detonator atm and I have worked a lot on fitting the armor. Have waited some time for several parts to arrive too, but now they are all here :)

Have worked on belt, drop boxes, sniper plate too. Will submitt more pictures after next build day. Hope it will be very soon. Then I will almost be done! :)

Build day 5 & 6

 

Day 5:

TK-8505 and TD-6237 came over to help me on the build.

We trimmed drop-boxes, and parts on the detonator, did some of the elastic and we shortened on of the Xl shins with 35 mm.

I got shins from TM that are 75 mm longer than usual, but I had to trim them.

 

Day 6:

My TK build buddy TK-3664 came once again to build. We are going to build some tonight too as I got the shimming plastic from TM today.

We worked very effectively and did a lot in just 3 hours. We got to trim the other shin, began the work on the belt, trimmed some more parts, glued all the last snap plates, began to fit and assembly the armor. The snap and elastic system is almost done. We also glued the sniper plate to the left shin and fastened the ammo belt to the right thigh.

 

After tonight my build will almost be finished. (95 %).

We are going to work on the belt and the shimming plastic.

 

Here are some pictures:

Test photo from yesterday :)

We can call it a demo picture.

The shoulders have no elastics around them, glued it rigth after the picture was taken. Now they look Rotj-ish xP

There is some tape on the bicep and there are no button cover on the belt. Everything is fixed now tho.

Had the armor on to measure some elastic lengths and how much shimming that was needed for centurion :)

The armor will be done next week!

Can't wait :P
