TK-42775 Shadowtrooper Re-build and Size down

Recommended Posts

So my (Anovos) Shadowtrooper came in today, Picked it up off another member and already seeing allot of work that's going to need to go in getting this from a full size build trimmed down to my 5'5" (#arentyoualittleshortforastromtrooper) self. So without further delays. (Posting here because I can't access Spec ops forums at work =P)

 

A Pic to start it off (Because lets face it we look at pics then read)

So need some help from our "Expert Builders" 

 

The Chest piece return edge has been completely removed, (NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!)

The result is that the chest piece is cracking in multiple spots, and is flimsy as all hell. Anyone have an idea or how to make a new return edge from ABS Paste?

I have an Anovos kit and it is very flimsy.

One problem that you probably thought about it matching the black abs. Now with that said, you do not need a return edge there, especially as you are sizing down. For instance Luke's armor did not have a return edge as it had to be cut for his height.

I'd recommend that you don't worry about it, unless you really want it there. I am not sure on the best way to add an edge, possibly someone else might know.
