So it begins - ROTK Build

Recommended Posts

I'm building Jim's kit, but this is my first build and I have very little experience with fiberglass, so this should be an adventure.  BBB day will hopefully be arriving soon...

 

I've done a fair amount of research/browsing, but I'm always open to advice!

 

 

 

On a related note, has anyone used ImperialBoots' TK or EZ straps?

Looking forward to seeing those BBB photos.

 

A lot of troopers use ImperialBoots these days since TK Boots are no longer supplying.

Alright, just got my kit. Aside from a couple tiny cracks, everything looks good and accounted for. I'm currently giving everything a wash. After that, fitting/trimming, strapping and paint!

 

Before I begin fitting to see what I need to modify, does anyone have recommendations on dealing with stray fibers on the armor interior? 

 

EDIT: For fixing the cracks, is there anything recommended that is flexible and strong enough for this?
