Highlander’s AP ANH Stunt Build

Recommended Posts

I attached the ammo pack to the right thigh. I centered the ammo pack and each side is 17mm from the back edge. Just need to add the white paint to the rivet heads.

Very nice, looked like they have worked out well, good luck with the sniper plate, almost as bad as ears ;)

The paint on the TD has finished drying so I began reshaping the clips included in the AP kit. I used paint sticks to keep from pinching them closed and my vise with plastic inserts to bend the clips. Then I used the vise to make a small bend 6mm from the end and then rounded the ends. I attached the clips to position the control panel And glued it on. I added a before and after comparison and the final products.
 

I am thinking of using loctite on the screws so they don’t back out after I glue on the end caps. I don’t want the clips to come off and have to cut the end cap off in the future.

The TD caps are on so tight I decided not to glue them. Hopefully that works out ok and I don’t lose one. The color is dark admiralty grey and is lighter in person.

I was able to bend the sniper knee plate using a hot water bath. I bent the left side up and the right side down in a sort of twisting motion described in other builds. I then clamped the middle and let dry for a few days and glued the sides down. The middle separated a little bit so I had to re-clamp to get it more straight. It isn’t perfect but it turned out better than expected.

Definitely looks quite dark, but if it's the same grey as the teeth and traps you should be ok. Nice work

I would certainly leave some return edge, I have just on 4mm on chest/ab and back/kidney areas.
The TD colour looks much better in outdoor light, I was concerned it looked almost black in earlier shots.
Solid work trooper.

Do you have any issues with overlap on the back/kidney/rear pieces with 5mm return edge? I wasn’t planning on trimming them but it would help get me closer to movie size.

Not at all, but it also really depends how well the armour fits you. Foam padding can help alleviate overlap, which i do have in both the back and kidney pieces but only needed a small amount and its more for comfort.
