Crookknight's TFA Jakku-Trooper Build

Recommended Posts

I have armor coming from MIMIC in the UK.  The armor itself is made from a high quality fibreglass cloth with a perfect gel coat surface.  All parts will be painted.  I will still need to fit it, add the strapping, belt, boots, under armor, etc....   The new Episode VIII helmet will follow about 1 month behind.  I should be receiving the armor in a couple of weeks.  So I will probably start acquiring the soft parts. NOTE: After a year of waiting, I still have not received the second half of the armor.

 

THANK YOU KB PROPS for working with me and others that got taken advantage of by MIMIC and getting us armor at a great price.

 

So this armor will be a mix of MIMIC's Fiberglass and KB Props ABS.

 

Below I am going to list what vendor I am purchasing all of the items from:

 

Hard Armor: MIMIC (First Half)  KB PROPS for second half of armor.  https://www.facebook.com/KBProps

Helmet (TLJ):  TKD Props - https://www.facebook.com/TDK-Props-537706609725029/

Helmet (TFA): Anovos

Looking forward to seeing the armor, I've heard of them but not seen anything from them as yet.

 

The wait for the BBB is unbearable ;)

Tell me about it.  I cannot wait.  It is not the cheapest armor, but it is high quality and painted in high gloss.

Paul's prop work is terrific. Quality is the name of the game. This build has been coming along nicely and it looks outstanding. I'm looking forward to seeing the final result

I ordered my belt kit from:

 

Premium First Order Belt Kit (Darren aka JAFO) visit  http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/36882-premium-tfa-fotk-belt-kit/

 

His stuff looks amazing.  I am not going to start on it yet, but wanted to post the picture of the kit I received.

 

I am sure it wall all make sense to me, once I get started.

Just make sure to measure and mark it with the belt kit ON yourself and with all the armorparts (ab/cod/butt), or else you'll end up with wrinkles :)

Thank you for the insight.  I will make sure I do that.

The top 2 layers flex a good bit but the inner polyester webbing layer is tough as nails and won't budge. I glued all of my layers together and when I glued the inner webbing I had to glue it in a "round" formation (not flat on table) if that makes sense, same goes for regular screw assembly I guess.

Thank you for the information. Sounds very complex. I will post on this thread as I do it and let me know if you see that I'm doing anything wrong. I appreciate it. Thank you.

It is also possible to construct the belt with no glueing! I've seen it done by some. Let me see if I can find you some info

Sounds good. I am not going to get my armor until sometime around the first week or two of October. So I really cannot do anything until then. Of course as a pack Builder, I have built 18 different versions of backpacks, I also want to build the Pack for the first order Stormtrooper on jakku.

I've been following the MIMIC thread on the RPF and am thinking about getting a kit.  Are you going to get the pieces in waves or all in one go?  Any notification if it's shipped yet?

It sounds like we will get them in two waves. He says he has shipped the first couple a week or two ago. No one has received them yet to the best of my knowledge.

Received my first half of armor from MIMIC yesterday.  This is excellent quality and highly detailed.  Here are some general photos.  It even came with velcro installed.  Once I start assembly, I will show closer pictures.

Started work on the helmet.  This is a slush cast resin helmet from TDK Props.  It is excellent quality and very well done.

Anyone have any recommendations for the Blaster / Rifle Kits and finished versions?

I can 3D print you one if you’d like?
