Echo327 ATA works ANH Stunt Build Thread

Recommended Posts

Shaved some plastic off the cod, fixed paint on buttons, put some shape to the belt, repositioned TD clips, and opening the eyes on the bucket. Pics to come tomorrow!! 06f1e81185f607a8bce151916bfbb6a7.jpg662316237e57ec7fd6f1966e47a20562.jpg1f58e00a6c104ed8dac2d103547e6bad.jpg824b597b144a2d4de96e867411a00be7.jpg4c8c9ebfae7821b43111bc962ea2b251.jpgaf93a39614e3f926bece8201d6454812.jpg

Very nice, you will hate me @echo327, one more thing, ab plates aren't rounded on the edges and could be trimmed a little more, could still go a little smaller on the buttons too ;)

Ha! No hate. Just a small roll of the eyes. What do you think of the eyes on my bucket? A little before and after.3af61f3a7bf73c157013d3cbcab083ca.jpg

Much better, you will be amazed how much that little extra on the insides of the eyes makes your vision so much clearer, you could even go a little more in the smaller corners near the nose, but entirely up to you.

Here's a screen helmet for comparison

Ok. So the glue is still wet and I have some cleanup to do when it's dry. Better???? I think so. The key, I think, is to resist the urge to paint the ENTIRE button. The buttons on the ATA armor are much larger than the ones in the reference pictures. So it almost feels like you're doing something wrong if you DON'T paint the whole button. That also goes for trimming the pieces. There is a fine line between too much and not enough. I hope this puts to bed my TK button adventure. I think tomorrow I will be camera ready and.... "when this thing hits 88 miles per hour,.... You're gonna see some serious sh@#." aff81c3f05d962d960d8e81ca4fbcf2c.jpg&key=eae6e8ec9057be37b33010fb5499284a394aecf431afa6b08e271f3193e3a29d

Looking great. You could trim the ends of your shoulder straps but should not stop you from getting your number.

I've been thinking... I've come a long way in my build in the last few months. And now that I'm sitting here waiting for approval, I started to realize something that has been told to me more than once on this journey. "You're never done." "You will always find something to work on." So in the spirit of never being done I'm posting some pictures of the Comlink that I 3D printed last night. I also got a really cool set of binders from Disney's Galaxy's Edge. I will keep posting pictures and asking questions on this build feed for as long as I am building. Thank you all for taking this journey with me. Let's really see where it goes!!!4780d6ac3083cc584ae941be4d2cfa1f.jpg0930365ee7970ee8f56c8cbd91842bf8.jpg629516e4bee7377f7977baa27840e33d.jpg0023e609b41bed42df96a2b4ea257589.jpgfa3bde2e3d66846c3d2af04ae07d40f1.jpgc7288a718517f797172015d9495ee52e.jpg

Very nice, I'm hoping to get my hands on a set of FOTK binders some day

 

Correct, there are always teaks or improvements you find that are needed on the journey, hopefully you won't be waiting too much longer for your approval :coffee2:

Here's my new bucket bag that the patches are for. I'm going to cover up the "Raider" with the custom patches.72f0210b539a4b65ef1d55333f51028f.jpg1df314656a6319b9b7ca293c0d8f477f.jpg
