TheSwede`s FOTK build

Recommended Posts

It`s been a long wait but the armor cleared the Swedish customs as of yesterday so figured it would be safe to start this up:)

When I first watched the force awakens I was really disapointed with the new Stormtrooper helmet - DID NOT LIKE IT! The armor was cool though - however, over the years the helmet has grown on me so now I like it and really look forward building this kit. 

 

Here`s the version I´m going for:

Besides from the armor (duh) one needs the following items:

Cloth gaskets - Geeky pink`s phantastic gaskets  (for Centurion you will need rubber).

Armor vest - Diversity Props

Boots and gloves - Imperial boots

Undersuit - stromtrooperundersuit.com

Belt and pouches - Trooperbay

Blaster rifle - 3Dprops NL

Metal holster - R2Dan

Back pack - BSP (borrowed pic from FB, kit ships tomorrow)

Hooray for BBB day - even if it is bucket-less.  Post lots of pics and share all the details. 

 

At this rate, by the time I finally finish my TD, you will have finished an ESB TK, TD, and FOTK.  I don't know how you do it. :salute:

When I arrived to the Imperial Factory (work) I decided to change my game-plan and work on the blasters first.....been painting (and sanding) alot of pieces...not finished but started to feel good about myself...but....

.... there’s always more...:blink:...oh well run out of white paint so I guess that’s a rap for today....(yes I have black paint and pieces that are to be black but choose to ignore that :P)

Heard back from KB and the helmet molds needed remaking during the next couple of days....just wish he had told me beforhand - would have saved me from popping a few blod vessels in my head….oh well, as the saying goes...all is well that ends well:)

Some touching up and minor work to do but almost done with the blasters, they are not perfect but I put them together as trooping-blasters. No electronics in the blaster riffle as of yet but I can take it apart if I would like to ad that in the future:)

Started trimming: did the yoke and then remembered to start talking pics one can see the yoke a bit on the side:smiley-sw013:

the cod, fairly easy to see where to cut.

And done...almost, there’s a little lip at the top

The back

 And...then there was the ab plate :blink: where’s the lower edge the belt rests on? First I thought KB just got carried away and cut to much in a hurry to get the kit done, would be understandable...but as I looked closer there’s a little lip so now I’m confused...?

 

EDIT: turns out the edge is not required and this is how the new mold is in order to make the ab plate longer- I stand corrected.

Looking good, sir.

The F-11D has really grown on me, (much like the armour itself). This is a dangerous, potentially expensive thread for me to be following! Lol

Seems like it's missing yeah. But you don't really need it. You can go the screen accurate route and add all the small tabs or just attach the cod/butt with snaps as many have done :)

I was more concerned about getting the belt to sit properly, I want a new ab plate:duimomlaag: I checked all the other KB references and they all have that edge...I sent him a PM so I’ll wait to hear back...not to happy bying stuff that needs fixing the minute you get it.....*sigh*

 

EDIT: I was wrong about the ab plate, it’s a new mold.

 

that’t me complaining.....time to start on the other parts:)

With a little bit of velcro on butt and cod the belt will sit right if the abdomen is properly fitted to you. Besides you'll get a little bit more freedom inside the suit without those edges :duim: Although I see now that your codpiece looks a bit short so maybe it was designed to be used with the edge. If you put it up against the ab piece where the edge would be and then compare it to up against the ab piece (right beneath boxes) how does it look?
