Recommended Posts

Well here is the final assembled armour all laid out. 7 weeks from start to finish. Delayed a couple weeks by a dislocated rib and a fall down a flight of stairs.

Expert Infantryman submission submitted and awaiting...

Have to say I love the bicep hooks I added. they keep the biceps in place, with my longer arms they kept sliding out from under my shoulder bells, the added hook holds them perfectly in place.

I received the fabric print to add to the screen accuracy look of the glued black straps. They have all been painted and look great pics to come tomorrow! 

 

I have a full day troop on Saturday at a Comic-con so that will be the real test of the armour and its comfort level. So I'll see what needs adjusting and tweaking after a day in armour, so far I had to re-position the left shin upper bra hook as it was too loose, easy tweak.

Here's some detail pics of the black strapping painted to emulate the Stelmax glue used on screen armour.

 

Thigh straps

Shoulder bells

Onto the shins, a few close ups of the Newey size 4 bra hooks sewn into white elastic strapping. When lying these up the end of the hook is placed just over the inner edge of the armor not near the out edge of the cover strip. This pulls them tight and closed. you leave about 1" loose at the end too.

The commlink, needed to glue the metal bracket as it kept turning. I also found the commlink easily gets knocked out. I solved this by addign a small black hair elastic over the clips keeps it secure and you can't even see it. I'll post a pic of it this weekend.

First troop in the Hero armour was Saturday at the Niagara Falls Comicon, everything went really well the armour was perfect, well near perfect a couple wear marks on my skin from the inner side of the chest plate edge; need to reshape a bit rounder there. I'm the first Hero TK in the Canadian Garrison. 

 

Providing guard duty at the Emperor's throne. Test driving the new SE14R blaster too!

I found a simple way to keep the commlink on by belt in the metal bracket as it easily pops off with impact from your forearm or blaster. I added these black hair elastics and they hold the piece firmly in place. 

 

I use 2 of them for safety.

1 on and 1 off to see what they look like

Very hard to see unless you are a foot or so close to it.

I never seem to get to wear my Hero TK as often as I'd like as having multiple costumes makes that challenging. 

 

But here it is at Toronto Comic Con.

I also had a chance to wear my new non-Star Wars costume, a Planet of the Apes Gorilla Solider. I had to mash up my Gorilla with my TK...
