Thanks for the heads up Tony I thought for sure that I might have gotten them mixed up but I did get my kit after the whole shin gate thing lol and I doubled checked with your build and a couple other builds with the newer kits to make sure, oh well into the freezer they go.

Huh! I never noticed that difference in the shins before. Maybe its an Anovos vs AP thing. Or maybe my shins are backwards. :icon_eek:

Either way, Ukswrath is the guy to listen to!

My ATA shins are long on the outside, so yea they can differ between suppliers.

Lol thought I was going to be a lucky one. Put both in the freezer for a few hours and they came apart nicely. Glad it was only the internal strips holding them together.

E6000 is a life saver, I still use it on a majority of my projects.

Steady rolling now after a Squad mate (wingnut65) came over last night and looked over my progress so far. Lots of glue drying on the table, mostly snap plates, thigh elastic and the sides of the sniper knee. 9ccb11ab10c946a38064a72b9283cb96.jpga0220396871f27bf09f271b6f0521219.jpg675e0e0e06b863fd75b7202d31924721.jpg88f83352500f47bbae5b2bc72bb8248c.jpg

I do have one question about the TD I am seeing different sizes for the total length anywhere from 184-190mm. Below is what I’m at with the caps on. 0a31093c78dfc335e878a0df6707aac8.jpg

Did a little work on the bucket the last couple days.

Also do the screws below look ok or are they too big. That’s the best I’ve been able to find locally.

I normally use 4 or 5 mm but I've seen 6mm used before

 

With the teeth area try not to get paint on the gums, if you do you can easily remove with a toothpick.

From the CRL: Frown is painted gray and does not leave the teeth area.

Thanks, I’ll keep looking for better screws. Haven’t had time to clean up the paint on the teeth just yet and I only extend the paint to what I have seen in other builds.

I sell 6-x3/8 with my brackets. Still a little larger than movie accurate but close enough for government work.

Finally home for a few weeks so I started on painting the button plates. I think I’m on the right track but I want to make sure. I’m thinking I put a little to much grey.

Looks good to me, you could however trim the plates themselves a bit to match the screen used ones:)

Will do, thanks for the suggestion was going to ask that ask that also before I mounted them. Just glued the shoulder bridges down had to wait for the inner supports to fully dry. Darn drill battery was dead so I have to wait on that so I can drill pilot holes in the TD for the clips. More waiting lol.

This is where I'd suggest trimming the smaller one to, Keith (below).  Great job so far.. keep those pics coming!  

Side note:  If you see him, please tell my buddy Jeff (Wingnut65) I said hello!

Thanks for the pic that will help nicely. I’m a visual kind of guy.

Will definitely do that. He is master mind behind all this lol along with other TBS guys. Assisted with this build and my approved Tusken.
