Wow... That looks like so many extra parts in that kit.

 

Good luck with the build. Can't wait to see the progress on it!

I've only ever seen it assembled. Wow. 

 

What is that neck thing just below the face plate?

Yeah, it's a lot of parts,  I have to admit that I don't even know where all the parts go yet.

That's a lot of trimming!

 

Yeah, I think I counted 58 pieces to trim.

It's a separate piece for the neck area, so that you can actually get your head through. Fits over top of the main chest piece, and attaches to it.

Awesome Travis,

 

I plan to do a Concept trooper sometime too.  Probably not until mid to late summer.  After the Ewok  and threepio and Endor Leia and.. a snowtrooper...and ...and..

Update, all the pieces are trimmed, just need to hit them with some sand paper to get rid of the sharp edges. I will begin assembly tomorrow. Only part I'm not sure about assembling is the belt, and also have a few pieces that I don't know what they are actually for.  Here's some trimmed pics.

 

Belt parts

If you know where any of the questionable pieces go, I would greatly appreciate any input. Thanks for checking out my build thread, I hope to have some assembled piece pics tomorrow.

Which pieces are you not sure on? I might know what it is when I see it. (Building my own kit)

 

Thanks thechosenhitman, I don't know what the ones on the left, and the ones on the right are, I figured out that the ones in the middle, go on the backpack.

The ones on the left sit on the sides of the back/kidney & abs plate.

 

The ones are on the right go in the shins.

Thanks for clearing that up, I really appreciate it. Do you happen to have pictures of those pieces attached, I've been looking at Kevin's pictures, and don't see  those pieces on his armor at all.

Yes I believe the trapezoid pieces are the gussets that connect the butt and cod section, and the shin pieces, if they are like the clones, they go in like a spoon after you slip the shins on.

I'm pretty sure that the shins are clamshell, and just close in the back, similar to a TK. I am assuming that I need to cut off those pieces on the top and bottom, since I am pretty sure you can't wear the shins with those pieces still attached.

OK, here's the pictures of where those pieces go, in case anyone else is confused in the future. I believe the top and bottom pieces on the elongated shin part will be removed, so you couldn't see where it was attached once assembled. I don't think you would have the right mobility, if those pieces stayed, and it would probably look funny.

And the other piece is mostly covered by the armor, it goes in the back piece, with some velcro going in the indentation that's showing, so the chest and back piece are connected, pretty different than the TK I am used to.

Thanks to the thechosenhitman for clearing that up for me, it will allow me to get a lot more done today, without fear I am screwing something up.
