merkava74[TK] Posted February 15, 2020 Report Share Posted February 15, 2020 (edited) Finally, after having bits and pieces except the armour since 2017, I managed to get my hands on an ANOVOS TFA kit, and so finally my build can commence! Armour, Helmet and Neck Seal: Anovos TFA Gaskets: Imperial Gaskets (rubber) Boots and Gloves: Imperial boots Undersuit: Stormtrooperundersuit F11D Blaster: 3D Print As I build, I will be linking those parts here for easy reference instead of scrolling through every post. Disclaimer: I am intending to build this to Level 3 certification, so hopefully the CRL doesn't change drastically during my build. Comments are welcome! And here's the kit in all its glory. Washed with mild soap to remove any release agents that might be on the plastic. The basic tools that I am using: Cutting and Sanding Proxxon Handheld Jigsaw for cutting ABS: https://www.proxxon.com/us/micromot/38530.php Belt Sander for fast sanding Proxxon Handheld Belt Sander for finer but still fast sanding: https://www.proxxon.com/us/micromot/38536.php Files, various grades of sandpaper for final sanding Adhesives CA Glue for small quick joints Weicon epoxy for final and large joints: https://www.weicon.de/en/applications/bonding-and-sealing/linking-major-parts/for-large-bond-gaps/54/easy-mix-n-50-epoxy-adhesive Weicon Epoxy glue dispenser gun and mixing nozzle Cutting the pieces Every piece was first outlined with a marker pen to understand where to cut off. I tool care to use references and other build threads to see where there would be return edges, and where there wouldn't. Golden rule: MEASURE TWICE, CUT ONCE.
