Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone.

 

BBB Day for a new project.  :D  Received the kit since February but I have been collecting soft parts and others.

Honestly, I feel exactly like the first day I opened my ANH TK kit on February  2019.  "What to do with such tons of plastic? Where do I start ? :56pullhair::56pullhair::56pullhair:

Since I only have weekends to work on this build I think It's going to be some kind of a stop motion build.  :coffee2:

 

Thanks in advance for all the incoming help and tips Troopers !!!    :peace:

Resources : As we always recommend here in the FISD  to new the armor builders , there are some useful resources and info to take into account besides the CRL . In my case for this very first FOTK build ,  they're   as follow:

 

1 - First Order Stormtrooper The Force Awakens TK  CRL 

 

2- FISD FOTK Reference Images Gallery section

 

3 -  Other's TFA Build Threads . I have found and study the following :


                        Ukswrath's FOTK build thread

 

                       Ruthar's First Order Stormtrooper Build

 

                       Revvek’s FOTK build [KB 2020]

 

                       Merkava74's TFA FOTK Build Thread (Anovos)

 

                      TheSwede`s FOTK build [KB]

 

4- Fellow Troopers here in FISD. 

 

One of the most important asset to achieve this personal goal is the help,  encouragement and support that can be found here from the very best. All the fellow FISD members.

My prefered method  for every armor build I make is usually about  the same:

 

1- Triming and Sanding All

2- Painters Tape pre asemble, test fit

3- Measure, Adjust and Glue, test fit

4- Assemble , Test fit

4-Add details  (Rivets, Greeblies etc.) test fit

5- Final Test Fit

 

 

TRIMMING

 

 

Ready to start, Reference Gallery, Build threads from others fellow troopers, a Imperial Cup of Tea and of course Scissors and tons of plastic ahead :56pullhair:

Note: I'll try to be the more simple an clear as I can

Lets start form Top. This sections has some excess of plastic both sides and I'll trim the low front section in a conservative way till the moment I start assembling.

Off to a great start.

 

:laugh1: it's always a dirty start , trimming and sanding, looks like you'll never end . :56pullhair:

 

This last weekend I think I have finished trimming and sanding, (at least the first part before assembling adjustment that usually require some more trimming. )

 

I need to upload the Legs section.  In a minute :coffee2:

Looking amazing so far! The number of belt boxes alone can be intimidating forsure. Looks like you've had lots of practice drawing colored lines on things ;P But that's very helpful - great thread!

Hey Mario, I have a favor to ask you sir.

can I trouble you for a photo of all the armour parts laid out on the floor.

The reason I ask this is we dont have any comparison images of say a KB kit vs a 850 armor works kit vs a Jimmy, or the mystical Anovos kit lol, and I'd like to put something like that together for our members.

Thanks and back to our usual programing :)
