WTF TK armor build. (first build)

It looks as though the WTF kit has two outer left parts in the kit - now that I can see them from the front. You have them assembled as good as possible but the shin on the left hand side of the photo is the left shin and the one on the right is the right, so they want swapping over before you mount the sniper knee plate on the wrong leg.

Cool. Thanks. The two halves match up pretty well. Better than that last set. I'll swap them as you suggested. I was wondering about that.

A little bit of work done yesterday.

 

Arm strapping is done. I found that when you fold the elastic over to punch the holes for the snaps. A little thin CA will harden that area and make it easier to punch the holes and also add strength. I need to straighten up the back plate. I need to trim the free floating straps in the back. I haven't made a lot of progress on the bucket so I'm still in the Black Series.

Because I was bored and thought it would give me a good perspective of where I was on the build I laid it all out.

Picked up some more snaps. Finally finished. I'll share my method for smashing snaps.

I should be able to start on the interior strapping this weekend.   :jc_doublethumbup:

Trying to work out this interior strapping. I started with double snap plates, but ended up cutting them in half. I may regret that.
