Highlander’s AP ANH Stunt Build


Recommended Posts

Always best to check the gallery sections, CRL is approximate measurements, just because a maker has mold lines does not make it correct

I adjusted to 9mm down and 13mm on from the edge. Looks about right to me. 

One complete set of arms. I found the thicker outer cover strips pull the forearms out a little. Probably still needs a little shaping but not as drastic as before. Thigh trimming begins tomorrow.

Got a little side tracked with helmet electronics. I used the Ukswrath integrated helmet speakers and 4 fan system with 2 anker powercore mini batteries. I made some elastic battery cradles to get the

Makes sense to me and I am trying for the highest level possible. Thanks for the feedback. I will make the appropriate adjustments to the TD. It looks like I may need to bring my rivet hole marks further in from the edge of the ammo pack.

Hi Ryan,  as Glen pointed  for higher levels (even basic) , it's too important to check the gallery . 

The crls states :  Text descriptions are only one part of the guideline. GML's and costumers must consider both text and pictures (CRL and Reference) when reviewing the costume.

 

When  giving advices , tips and reviewing EIB and Centurion level apps, we consider both CRL and Reference Images. 

 

About your ammo pack rivets , your measures looks ok,  you can mark 5mm down and 10mm across and see haow the mark looks acording to the references.

I marked the holes on the inner strip side and used a dremel to sand out the holes to match the inner strip. I used a small cone sanding attachment to make room for the small sanding drum to even it out. Then, following cricket’s tutorial, I lined up the other side and taped and used magnets to keep it closed. Then, with them still held closed, I used the same two step process to sand out the other side.

Calf cover strips are done. However it looks like the cover strip straightened out the outer side of the left calf and it is under some tension to close. I will need to give it another hot water bath to get a better curve to ease any stress on the magnets. I am giving the glue ample time to cure to avoid any issues.

I find with most makes that you have to apply a little heat to the shin closure to get them to sit a little flatter.

Or, peel the cover strip off now, and hot water bath it to shape … then re-E6000 it to the calf.

This calf was giving me trouble the first time so I’m hoping the cover strip will give me the leverage I need to get them lined up better.

I oriented the buttons and magnets how they will end up and marked with a sharpie on the side that would be glued to make sure they were oriented correctly. I glued the magnets in the cover strip, added the magnet buttons and another magnet on top of that on the outer side for strength. The magnets were moving when the hole strip was over them so I am letting it glue in this position for 16 hours, realign and then cure for an additional day or two.

Those calves look amazing, Ryan! As far as for painting the TD, what paint are you planning on using? I used one which ended up being too dark, so I’m curious what you’ve found. My TD woes and work are well documented on my own unfinished build thread. Somehow I lost track of your build for several months, but I just caught up and am loving your work!

I am using the AP TD clips shown below. I will be rounding the edges and bending the ends slightly to make it easier to get on and off. I think I am going to leave the length since it is the the exact width of the belt and very secure and doesn’t show when on the belt. Welcome to suggestions on that point because I know the screen used TDs were even with the end of the tube. 
 

I was planning on using humbrol dark admiral grey the same as the teeth and traps.

I taped off the areas of the TD that will be glued and brush painted with Humbrol #5 Dark Admiralty Grey (same as the teeth and traps on the helmet). It took two coats and should be ready for final assembly tomorrow. Also I drilled some paint sticks with a 9/64” drill bit to hold the 6-32 x 1/2” pan head screws and paint them black. I tested both Humbrol #21 gloss black and #85 satin black and they look very close. I will probably go with the satin since it isn’t quite as shiny. I had to buy a bag of 100 so if anyone needs TD screws let me know.
