Matt's RS ANH build May 2017

Recommended Posts

Thanks Daniel and Tony.

 

today I shortened the shoulder elastic straps as the back plate just sat too low, using e6000 was a life saver as the elastic pulled off of the amour whiteout causing any damage. I also have to take the snaps off and reposition them closer to the chest plate.

I also attached the shoulder cover straps after some test fitting

Thanks Tony, I have been using your anovos build thread as a building guide plus a few centurion applications for reference.

What Tony Said:duim: and...now you can do the "I`m half a stormtrooper, yes I`m - dance":dancing-trooper: at least that`s what I did when I had the torso strapped together^_^

hi all,

 

whilst waiting for for the shoulder covers to dry I thought that I would make a start on the helmet.

ive read more than one thread about the ears but in this case I think I lucked out when trimming them and them came up ok.

That’s looking great Matt, love the new “hoodie” look stormtrooper :)

You have done a lovely job on the teeth and eyes, there is perhaps a little bit more that could come off the right eye at the top, so that it matches how you have done it on the left eye.

Wow... looking great :)

Moving on from my first helmet that still isn’t complete I learnt that the lens is best installed before you make the final cap and back connection.

 

i had 2 packs of line 24 snaps sitting here so I thought I would try something to fit the lense.

the main reason for the snaps is because I have one yellow and one grey lense from my fire fighting gear that I am going to adapt to be able to fit to the helmet if it’s too dark for the green lense.

 

also my suit is done all I need is some white paint for the rivets

I started painting the helmet and it’s almost done, using screen reference photos, other EIB and Centurion applications I think I am on track.

Hi everyone, well I finally finished the helmet, I have tried to match one of the screen helmets but any feedback would be appreciated. 

 

Im pretty chuffed at the results, it’s far from perfect but I like the fact that it looks a bit rough.

 

i did freehand the paint job however I used the trooperbay stencils on the tube stripes.

Well here it is, all done.

 

There are some final adjustments that I am currently making but I’m happy with the end result plus my wife gets the dinner table back.

Hopefully you haven't dropped any glue on that dinning table ;)

 

Good luck with approval.

Wow, that’s looking great Matt, get your garrison clearance, but also apply for your 501st ID now, as the clearance in interlinked to you getting your TKID, then once cleared apply for EIB and then Centurion.....

 

Your armour looks amazing mate
