Jes Gistang [KWDesigns] build thread

Recommended Posts

I did want to suggest that perhaps you take the pressure off yourself and work with a much looser deadline. It makes the build a lot more enjoyable. I'm looking to finish mine in time for Celebration Anaheim. Are you going? We could troop together. I was hoping we could get all the femme troopers together into a squad on one of the days and troop around. You in?

 

 

I know Val is planning on taking hers, and I bet she would be good to go for this

Hey Girly! I took quite a break... yep - too much pressure. :)

Ok - had to look up when that will be. That actually might be do-able.

Thank you for that idea. That would be lots o fun. I like to have

stuff to look forward to doing.

Hey Jenny, just catching up on these threads.  Did you ever finish yours?  Set # 08 went to another 501st member in Georgia.  I decided to stick with my TK, which I've been getting a lot of use out of lately.

Ah, you're the Diana that sent it over here! :D

 

We're super excited to have another in GA :) AND we may have a 3rd in a couple weeks ordering...

Yes!  That was me.   They were telling me how they looked at the set you built, and we were discussing how much we all liked your build thread.  Three?  Keep going and you will be able to start a squad soon. :)

Hi Jenny, i'm just chiming in to cheer you on with your build.   My wife and I are following your progress.    :duim:

When we saw TK-66602's official approval on the 501st Legion website, we started studying the assembly process.

Must fix knees

Over compensating for making my TK thighs too snug...

I accidentally left my helmet in the Georgia sun and half of it is yellowing already.

What can I use to take the yellow off? What paint do you all use for armor?

I think I need to paint it since I have used home made abs-paste on the shins and forearms.

 

Thanks for any answers you can help me with!!!! :)

I just posted THIS to my new GARRISON.... WISH ME LUCK!!!

P.S. I know - this armor looks like a hot mess on the inside... especially the bucket.

I plan on fixing the helmet guts... waiting on my padding to arrive. :) :) :) 

 

Please let me know where I can improve or what needs fixed. Thanks!

oh wow, great work! love your paint job as well on the helmet, good work!

 

maybe just some elastic black bands to keep the shoulders in place? (I got the same remark ;)

 

it suits you very well! YAY! femtrooper love!

Thanks everybody. :) I appreciate your guidance and support. Those shoulders were giving me fits in my test run. I 'bout forgot about them! I'll be adding some hidden elastic and re-doing my helmet padding. Oh - my shin armor has this very loud and annoying squeak when I walk. It's rubbing on my boots. I think I'll try adding some cloth type fabric to the lower inner shin part to reduce the noise. I still don't think I can sneak up on anybody though. I'm waiting on more helmet trim to get here since I cut too much off the brow trim. Also, my belt seems to be barely holding on, so I'll need to figure out how to secure it a bit more. I carry my white duct tape for every troop, so in a pinch... that'll do, but I need to find a permanent fix. Oh... and I just remembered I want to add a little bit of padding behind my knees so they don't tuck under the shins. Looks like I've just made my to-do list. :)

Cheers! Jenny
