WTF TK armor build. (first build)

Recommended Posts

Ok, Yes. I'm still in the Black Series helmet, Honestly, this is why I got it. For tests fits because I always planned to do my helmet build last. I don't know why. I finally started painting it. Walt would be happy.

 

 

 

 

and put the mesh in.

Went to an armor party over the weekend. I was able to meet some excellent 501st members. They inspired me to punch the rivet into the sides of my helmet. Once that was done I had the guts to work on the ears.

Ok, Still need to build my Thermal Detonator, Close the back of my calves. Put the hand plates on my gloves,

 

The helmet is far from done. I want to cheesecloth Plastidip the interior and install a fan kit that a buddy is making for me, and there's some painting left to do.

 

The list is getting shorter though.

 

First suit up with my WTF bucket.

Overwhelmed a bit at this point. Two weeks until Comicpalooza and there's a long way to go.

 

I've realized there's a big difference in getting my TK ready for submission and getting it ready to troop in.

 

For submission, I just need to build the thermal detonator and attach the hand plates. Easy enough.

 

but for trooping. I need to pad my helmet and armor. Put in a fan kit, and Icomm. I just don't know if I'm going to make it.

 

Furthermore we go out of town for 5 days in between now and CP.  :huh:

Your getting close, I went through the same thing with Celebration.

Create a punch list and cross them off as you go along I found that it helped me not feel so overwhelmed with a deadline coming up fast.

I don't know why my pictures disappear.

 

Anyway. I think I'm going to go ahead and add the bicep straps. My biceps are sagging a little bit.

 

After that...submission photos

Could you try uploading a couple of pictures of your helmet build again?

The one thing that scared me the most on the bucket build was attaching the two pieces together. I used a lot of masking tape and made sure I had the two pieces lined up how I wanted them and then punched the rivets. Screws would have probably been a better idea.
