tat2trooper TK Anovos build thread

Ok so I pulled my thighs up as much as they can go and still needed a little more clearance so I trimmed bottom of calf so sniper knee could be clear of being pushed by thigh. It already started developing 2 cracks on each side. So I am going to make some trusty abs paste from anovos scrap and patch that up then wet sand it a little bit.

This has been a never ending fix for me right here any longer lasting solutions out there?

 

Hi David, I had the same problem. What I did is to apply some hot water bath to bend forward the sniper knee, glued a piece of abs scrap behind each side  and use ABS paste to repair. As you said never ending fix with plastic. :56pullhair:

 

:salute:

@1nfern0 @TKSpartan so my buddy suggested taking a piece of white t shirt and soaking it in super glue and putting behind to reinforce that area. So I used abs paste first and followed his suggestion it really does feel solid. We will see how it holds up for 4th of July march.

I've seen a similar method using fiberglass resin and T-shirt material, it's a neater way than using fiberglass matting.

 

Problem I find with a lot of super / instant glues is that they are not very strong, adding the T-shirt material may help.

 

There are other two pack glues which some of us use on our FOTK's, I use JB weld and some others use Devcon, there are of course others out there. The thing I like with JB weld is it's sandable and very strong when dry.

 

At the end of the day it's what ever works for you.

Nice I have the jb weld stuff too I can use in case this doesn't work. Will definitely see after this parade march.

Forgot to post the update on sniper knee fix. Well the piece of t-shirt with super glue worked great. Didn't crack again and did a pretty long walk in parade. I am going to apply same method to my other build as well. OL03NbP.jpg

Oh and an fyi I used small screwdrivers seeing how the tshirt got stuck to my fingers with the super glue and was pretty painful ripping it from my skin hahaha.
