Hi at all,

I have a question to the dimensions of the shoulder armor.

How do I find the right measure for myself? :)

Hey Pascal

You will find out when you size the bells with the torso, there should idealy be minimal gap (Centurion) between the bells and the chest/back and the top of the bell should be touching the shoulder bridge . When trimming the bells note that the originals were trimmed at a curve and not straight:salute:

Hello at all,

 

last weekend I had the first complete try on of my TK. I have to finish now the strapping and the shoulder armor.

Here are some pics of my current status.

 

Thanks for your support :salute:

Looking good, just with the sniper plate if you are going for higher level clearance you may need to adjust it slightly, ideally the angle of the top of the sniper plate should follow the angle on top of the shin

Very nice work, good luck with approval.

 

Does look like you could pull your forearms up a little, they are quite close to your hand plates and you do have a large gap at the elbows.

 

With the butt plate sticking outwards you could try adding a piece of bent ABS behind, if you glue it to the butt section then the other side sits against the kidney and stops the butt pushing out.

Once again good luck
