Wook's Totally Dirty (TD) Build - AP

Recommended Posts

First test fit with the weathering and pauldron. Still need to make my thigh garter (temp setup being used) and proper shoulder straps. And yes, those are my dancing shoes (need to weather boots, pauldron, and pouches). I didn’t bother with the pouches but the wife snapped a few pics of the fitting so I tried some poses. Daniel, I was in a hurry and totally botched the pose. Next time :) And I need to finish the T-21.

Thanks!  My five year old son told me the weathering looked fake.  I told him it was paint.  He asked why I ruined my armour.  :glare:

Botched pose or not that still looks amazing - fantastic weathering and in replicating ”your Trooper”:salute:

 

 

Think you are correct about darker lens though

Love it :laugh1:

 

Also if you're shooting for SWAT don't forget the "T" track wiring on the blaster.

Yeah, kids. Lol. I was just doing up a to-do list and was writing “wire for DLT-19” when your post came through.

Weathering the pouches and pauldron and boots. 

 

So I got a jump on the weekend - I took Friday off and spent quality time with my family - and by quality time I mean I snuck away every chance I had to work on my armour.   I also installed a darker lens in the bucket, trimmed the ears a bit more (they can use even more to be screen accurate - yeesh), and installed the S-trim.  Once again I made the opening of the helmet too small - my head fits, but barely.  No head mounted microphone for me again.  All that is left for the helmet is to install a bunch of Velcro and then add fans. 

I also heard from CrookKnight and my pack is ready for shipping.  Woo hoo!  :dancing-trooper:

All that is left is some sewing - still haven't convinced the wife to get that done for me.  :icon_beg:  Oh, and I still need to add the t-track wires to my DLT-19 and build my T-21.  But since it is 37°C (~99°F) here, I am relaxing with a very cold beer.

 

I'll post some pics shortly.  After a few sips of my very cold beer.  :pint1:

Compare pics after and before distressing the MP40 pouches. I used 220 and 600 grit sandpaper and a wire brush.

Distressing small Spanish pouches. After and before.

I roughed up the pauldron but the effect does not really show very well in photos, so I won’t show that.

Pauldron after some black and brown paint washes.

Boots got brown and dark grey washes.

DLT-19 upgrade. Since I want to also have the option of trooping as the cantina captain, I need a dirty DLT-19. I added some wire to the t tracks and added a bit of weathering.

Used dremel to make some notches in t-tracks.

Installed wire. I used 19 gauge black wire. Might be a little thin but it is what I had on hand.

Light wash of light brown paint. It does not show up very well in photos.

A few mor things done. Finished off the helmet interior and some final sewing.

Thigh garter done.

Shoulder straps. Elastic.

I had my wife sew up these little white nylon tabs with a loop. I added Velcro to the backs of these and to the inside of my belt. Wired the nylon tabs to the small Spanish pouches.

For the helmet I lined most of the interior with Velcro and added fans. The fans are Henry’s fans from Trooperbay.

I didn’t bother with the switches and I don’t need the extra long wire.

I added some weather stripping to help dampen sound (they kind of rest on the hovi mic bumps).

So, still waiting for my pack and I have a couple of other little things I’m waiting for. I also have to finish that T-21.

But I went ahead and submitted pics for basic approval. Here are some pics. I have a few dressing issues and perhaps some strap fine tuning that I will revisit for upper level pics (arms keep riding up for one and my one pouch slide around), but I’m pretty happy with it.

Let me know if I missed something.
