Hand Made First Order TK


Recommended Posts

Haven't done an update in a while, but my FN (or TK as we call it here ) continues to come together. Got this before Christmas!

Hope to have everything assembled in Feb! And before you bombard me with requests for these items, check out the "First Order Stormtrooper Resource Guide" on the forum for where I got most of this stuff.

This may not be the correct place to ask my question, but here goes. What is the better and lightest helmet/armor? ABS or fiberglass? I am sorry if this question is asked in the wrong thread area.

I was asked question about how my beak sits on the bucket and how I secured it. As you can see in the kit picture earlier, I put small crosses on the back of the beak to align it to the bucket.

 

I applied 5 min epoxy liberally to the back of tbe beak then aligned it and taped it down until it cured.

You can see how my beak sits relative to the visor.

The beak sits relatively flush with the mesh near the tear drops. Although I do have more of a gap on my right side.

Where there should be space is under the front of the beak. Take a look at the pics from celebration and you'll see the same space. It's hard to tell in this pic.

ABS is absolutely lighter than either fiberglass or resin, and is typically more durable and easier to work with. As for which is better, that depends on your definition of "better". Weight, sculpt accuracy, quality of assembly, etc. all needs to be taken into account.
