RWA creations ANH TK build

Recommended Posts

So I finally ordered my TK costume from RWA creations in the UK.

I went with Ross as I’ve heard nothing but good things about him and his product.

I ordered it (2mm ABS) on March 16th. Every time I email Ross he pretty much answered within 12 hours ( seeing as there’s a 10 hour time difference with me being in Brisbane Australia).

He said it would take 3-4 months to build and send. And low and behold on the 16th of April my BBB arrived.

I have decided to start with the body and then progress onto the arms and then legs.

As I’m only 5’6 if I need to which parts would be the best to trim. I’m thinking bottom of chest plate and kidney section.5768f5f1826d656a97d1ce0aa69a0dd9.jpgaa2b1124a6e80540dd2737cbd6595c4d.jpg

Hi 

 

I have this KIT and I am 5"7" I did not need to trim anything I did get a bigger kidney plate as I am a fatty

 

Be careful trimming the Bells its hard to see the cut lines I trimmed to much from mine so had to get another set..

 

Ross has videos on you tube how to build his kit etc highly recommend 

 

Dan AKA CableGuy has this kit also.

 

For me I did not use the popper kit.

 

I went with MrNoStrips

for other strapping I used ukswrath anovos TK build

You need plenty of decent strong clamps grips, Magnets , lexan scissors, straight edge, sharp knife and sanding block with papers..

 

Be careful on the kidney piece mine broke at the crease.. 

 

other stupid things I did...

trimmed to much from bell.. trimmed ad sides a bit to much as I am a bit fat needed shims or Ross,s Chunky Kidney piece.

Hovi metal mesh cut them round instead of watching Ross Video how to stamp the out looks neater will make a 3D mode for this once I get replacement Mesh

Messed up the stripes on the helmet.. make sure its aligned and the right way and its stuck down properly..

Messed up the thickness of the Helmet lines easy fix to redo..

make sure your ab buttons are not rounded off they should be square.

Belt placement double double check measure twice cut once stuff..

Hovi Tips when painting dont paint the end rings of the Hovi tips just the outside part black

 

I was obsessing to make things square and aligned etc... its not meant to be!! 

 

Welcome! enjoy building your Kit!!

 

Hopefully now I finished my travels, I can finish my kit this weekend!

Thanks heaps, the information you have given me from your experience is priceless cheers.
I’ve trimmed the torso and have just finished glueing my first poppers on so let’s see what they’re like tomorrow.
Again many thanks
