Doing the same. Those 25mm strips come in really handy closing up the shins!

Start.... Stop. Start.... Stop.... Start!

 

 

Wife is out of town, and I have a week all to my lonesome. Whoo hoo!

I should be complete if not really close this week to FINALLY having armor built. How did you all trim strips to size?

 

I am starting with the Torso build now!

Nate,

 

I mark out out the width of the strip with a pencil and then use a metal spirit level (or any stright edge will do) and a utility knife and lightly score the first cut. A second score usually gets through the plastic, but if not, just bend and snap. Make sure to cut the corners off at 45 degrees at each end, so the bottom would look like this \___/ for authenticity ;)

 

Now hurry up and get the kit finished!

 

:D

Torso is done.

Upper body is done.

Helmet is done.

 

E6000 is drying. All that is left is the arms and legs, then the belt.

 

Pretty proud of my strap set up. By far the best I have done to date. I will be able to take the full arms off in one shot, upper body in another and the torso in yet another. all separate and comfy with plastic spring clips. Not 100% screen, but should troop like a dream, and who sees the straps anyway. Hey have to be functional in my book.

 

Thighs to be supported with a waist belt as well. The only parts loose will be the shins.

 

Manny looks like poo, but man... this set looks great on. Flat out love it. Should be able to run in this armor. Its that fitting. WhooOoO HOoooOO!

This really saddens me....when a trooper's plastic addiction becomes so consuming that they seem to forego the basic necessities such as food in order to instead feed their armor habit. I mean, look at this picture of Nathan! Even his scrawny little arms and bony fingers seem to implore "Can someone spare a sandwich??"

 

I therefore urge that you to donate to the Feed a Trooper (FAT) Fund today. Because an emaciated TK is a terrible waste. ;)
