TK ANH ATA Stunt Build

Recommended Posts

Around 50 hours then! 10 hours less than me, but 6x faster on the calender :) I totally noticed your eye for straight lines, and couldn't have guessed you used a dremel as I assume everyone has my shakey hands :).

 

I wasn't as active reading or participating in the forum for until I was almost finished, so I needed lots of breaks far away from the build, to let all the information sink into my brain. I hear you regarding the clamps and magnets, I had 2mm thick ABS to work with and I didn't want to use the heatgun everywhere the clamps and magnets wouldn't suffice. But my sister told me that you can't just do things by the book if you want to go fast and avoid frustrations: use whatever you have in the house. And I happened to have beer.

Lol I used jars of spaghetti sauce but didn't post pics as I thought people would laugh at me :). I found holding the piece to trim in one hand and hold the dremmel in the other and rest against my leg, gave a lot of control. Used mainly a cutting disc and the round sanding tubes. While waiting for the armor I did a lot of research, downloading and asking questions so I pretty much knew what to do when it arrived. So time for a rest, there will be some celebrating tonight and no doubt a site head in the morning. Oh btw I'm still smiling lol :)

Think everyone makes the odd mistake or two, I did as I found out applying for EIB, but it is a learning journey for us all and now I am EIB approved and waiting to hear back about my Centurion application
