PaqMan11M's R1TK Build


Recommended Posts

So I just ordered my raw ABS kit for my R1TK from 850 Armorworks. Going to go with  The Darkside Closet for my soft parts, Imperial Boots for my boots and gloves. Got my bucket already, which is a Black Series helmet, pictured below. Got replacement hovi tips for Ukswrath, new lenses and helmet gasket from OPLEprops on the way! Just waiting for my BBB day! I'll continue to update this thread as things progress! FOR THE EMPIRE!

Decided to add some photos from my WIP on my Hasbro Black Series bucket.





Complete breakdown:



Parts I don't need anymore:



New lenses from OPLEProps on Etsy:



New hovi mic tips from Ukswrath:



Starting the slow and meticulous process of cutting out the vents:



That's the only pics I've got so far, but it's coming along. Slow but steady.

Next step, basic armor trim.


A small sample of the pile of ABS trimmings from the kit. (Note: I binged the full first season of "The Mandalorian" while trimming this out! :D)



Some of the parts mostly trimmed:



Torso pieces and some other final odds and ends:



I've left a little bit of return edge on these so I didn't OVERCUT and end up having to fix a problem. Next step is gonna be sizing and then will final trim and sand down any return edges on the belt sander. Then assembly begins, with final sanding, primer, paint and clear!

Some goodies came in the mail!


Gloves by Endorfinders:



ImperialBoots coming through with a big score:



R1TK zipper boots (non-Chukka boot) with flat one-piece sole, and a thin balacava for trooping down here in sunny South Florida :smiley-sw013::



Next thing coming in the mail is the E-11 R1 blaster kit printed by friend of mine, and the undershirt with gaskets from "The Darkside Closet". So many things happening!

Coming along nicely, modding that BS helmet is a real pain but it looks good when finished. I added you to the roster.

I´ve got the same gloves. The quality is really good, but I ended up removing the inserts. When you wear them for some time and get sweaty hands, it is very difficult to get them off. I kept the inner gloves for colder days. It´s easy to wear them both.
