Legacy Era Build, version A


Recommended Posts

I used tin snips to carefully cut out the lenses. Attached them with hot glue.
In hindsight, I should have used e6000 because I think the heat caused the edge of one of the eye sockets to warp a little. Hardly noticeable, but still there if you really stare. a18c6715b8b7bde198d70c7bb17a3fac.jpg594ef9ac473b294cf1bdc8dbcbe2d921.jpg

Bought a screen repair kit because I didn't want to buy a whole roll of screen.
It came with a tacky adhesive backing which I just rolled off. I then placed it over the frown and used a silver sharpie to mark the corners.
I pretty much eyeballed it, trimmed it, and smeared e6000 on the edges. 798e80c13faa774faa3cb0ad658576e0.jpg&key=15bfcdcaab16eeb39778fc4f765e678f82239dc726a410b360ed092575fb50d8e7d8b914fcb50c953d7f2f08ae65d80f.jpg&key=fc839564b11e7fd4547098dc014cef057656192dde371d69ecfc916ba20d671d6012a5a712f75432fcf35e68b6faf596.jpg&key=f5df7790ba398ef5700104969d502ead34fa54fa138fec96c715d7c1c6b99a1c329382c529ca1917055c419a85a59f73.jpg&key=decbc463eff243229d1b9dfff9ef814c3d780060602db3bd847de20ea3f88f46

So I did the score & snap thing on the calves and shins. They came out very straight, but in hindsight, I shouldn't have dremeled them smooth. I should've just used plain sandpaper, as I think I dremeled too hard in some areas and made the smooth edges wavy.

I glued them to the special curved strip and used clamps and magnets tk to hold them for 24 hours.adaf38ff78f3590f598a6c4d3f95de0b.jpgdd53ff8de11f92bff281975807bab9b7.jpg6be865e3adef23793774520397909873.jpg

I scored and snapped the edges of the front part of the thigh. I removed only the curved edge on the back part of the thigh and left the extra ABS and used it as a finishing strip. My mind went blank for a moment and I accidentally removed the extra part on one side.
So, I used the extra lip on the back thigh piece as a finishing strip, and used an actual strip on the part I accidentally cut off.
Glued, and set for 24 hrs. 26d121274d555ce557f3078587061110.jpg0c3287f258ffae6f5ed4420f47d1780e.jpg

Had help with the sizing of my calves. Was advised to make wider finishing strips, so we measured and I cut 2 strips, 1 3/4 inches wide.

Because the calf is so curvy on this kit, I dipped the finishing strips in boiling water and shaped them into a loose "S" shape.

That worked beautifully. Was able to glue them on with little effort.

 

Oh, and I got to meet this cute pup named Winnie. She didn't like me at first, but she accepted me eventually.

Coming along nicely Lucy :jc_doublethumbup:, cute puppers lol

 

Not being as knowledgeable when it comes to these kits so excuse me for asking, but is a requirement to retain the lower calf return edge? TK armor it's removed.

Although not a requirement listed or stated in the crl my personal opinion is with the legacy the curves on the returns help with the overall look although in the lower shins you can work them back to as little as 3mm and still retain the curve and look

Gonna attempt the strapping.

Also added a bit more plastic to the shoulder bridges so that they really catch the chest plate. Otherwise there will be a huge gap between the two, requiring a YUUUGE glob of glue. 0f10c286d36d14e90b4d14a0466975cd.jpg4826ffa288ebbb8aea6dad753ac09916.jpg

Continued with the strapping this evening. Went with black, wide elastic to attach kidney to butt plate, and used snaps for chest/abdomen plates.
Also attached soft velcro to chest plate. Once straps on back plate are permanently glued, I will measure and adjust accordingly. 80100f997a1eb4ad607d4ead50a2d263.jpg92ef59e226d4d6b66eadcbc39f46cf00.jpg

Used a tape measure to space the small boxes out as evenly as I could. Bolted them on from the inside.
Also used velcro to attach front and back belt pieces.026bc3cabcc4f37f3ee548eca919efbd.jpg4efa03d60c6b77a94f34624dc42093ba.jpg76ac74cae57c4f11bea16766a1ebd021.jpg

Made my boxes. The lid didn't want to fit over the box, so I had to dip the whole top half in boiling water for about 20-30 seconds.
I did the hot water bath after I screwed the lid on so that I could immediately force the lid on before it cooled.
Worked well.
I then painted the gold screws white to match the box. db866a2a549004e1f69b8e3e6b97e014.jpg
