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 :)

 

 

Hi Andrew, I'll take the photo this weekend,  even though  I have glued the Torso section and biceps already, all the remaining pieces are unassembled

BACK/CHEST SECTION ASSEMBLY

 

NOTE:  I used E6000 Glue but it was recommended by fellow troopers to use an Epoxi Glue. I'll use it to the AB section Assembly .

The only issue I see using E6000 here or any other areas near seams is it will flex and when it flexes it may crack the seam filler and paint.

 

This advice may be a little late however I suggest using plastic welder/epoxy so the area connections and seams are permanent and have minimal flex.

Thank you Tony,  

 

One positive thing of E6000 is that , if necessary you can remove it carefully , and relocate, adjust or replace the piece and glue type. .

 

Let see how it works.  :salute:

I used JB weld for the yoke, you do get quite a lot of strain while putting on and off so any filler may crack between the join. At the end of the day what ever you are comfortable using.

I used a Heat Gun (carefully and make a test first with a scrap abs piece) and two wood pieces to mark the section I need to fold in. Applied the heat gun for about 5 seconds to avoid melting and make pressure with my hand to shape the piece.

The finished return edge is not perfect but it'll go inside glued to the cover.
