A Little help with the shins. (Anovos)

Recommended Posts

Hey, I'm working on my 2nd Anovos Kit, and I'm almost done. Just got to finish the thighs and shins. When i finished my first Anovos TK, soon to be TD, I was never satisfied with the back coverstrips, mostly by the way they set. Ive looked through Tony's build thread and i see does some stuff with the back, but I am still not sure exactly what he does. Or if someone knows a better way to make the back look nice a neat.  Thanks for all the help.

 

I actually like the way this one looks.

I had the same issue as yours on two of my kits. 

You will probably have to remove the Velcro but I taped them down tight with blue painters tape then put them in a big turkey pan with boiling water for about 10 seconds then held them and ran cool water over them. I only submerged the back 1/4 of the shin as to not reshape everything. This helped the plastic relax and take the shape to keep the cover strip nice and tight. The cool water helps lock in the new shape.

 

BTW: The Anovos shadow trooper still has the shins numbered wrong.

I can concur with that idea. I have the back of my thoughts a hot water bath to make sure the overlapping side was as flush with the other side as I could get it. I used industrial white velcro. 9d5ecabb1574738fc2ad757292b67ee0.jpg
