Hello everyone i just got approval for the forum and I'm looking forward to keeping you all up to date on my TD build. A couple of notes: Its mainly made up of an Anovos TK, Was originally planning to just go the TK route but i changed my mind. A couple of questions: Do i need a pauldron and backpack for basic approval? Does anyone know a good armor maker for slightly larger troopers, i could use a new set of shoulders and thighs to better fit my physique. Other than those things i am well on my way to completion. I will post photos after work. I have actually worn the armor a number of times as an unfinished TK for a few non 501st events. So much of the build is done. I still need to finish Calves, Thighs, Shoulder Straps, and weathering. Thanks in advance for all your help! Floyd
Hey folks. So working on the TD,And i think i am almost done done to join the 501st. But currently i am not happy with my weathering. I used just acrylic and alot of black oil like acrylic rather then a sandy look. I have seen a few sandys here in the U.K who have great weathering with Fuller's Earth,My current problem is that i don't know much about the fuller's earth in the uk,As i saw american videos that have dark browns,sandy and grey colours. So if anyone knows where to get these kinds of coloured fullers earth it would help alot but I have been thinking of alternitives,As i am currently living in a island in scotland and we have many amazing beaches here (Already planning some good photos in the near future,currently in the western isle/stornoway). And i thought maybe i could collect some sand tommorrow,re-spray my armour white with Appliance paint and work with real beach sand,acrylics and possibly even order some black sand from the internet. I was just wondering has anyone tried this?. Thanks a bunch guys (p.s just a photo of my armour currently,i know the arm is funny looking,it's a w.i.p but just to show i think i can do much better on the weathering on it) http://i1378.photobucket.com/albums/ah118/Ruaraidh_Mitchell/Sandtrooper/stormtrooper%201_9_zpssdvuxbcv.jpg
Hey folk's i am still rather new. But i have got my very first kit! Partially,i am paying for part's separately and i got so far my armour for my Sand-trooper armour. (All that is missing is pauldren,helmet,boots etc i just got the basic armour) So want i need help for is assembling. I am finding it great trouble getting over the fear of making a mistake,measuring wrong on my armour,How do you folk's get over the fear of this? Also i am finding it hard to get any sort of proper tutorials on armour assembly of the sand-trooper armour,as i want to be as accurate as possible (Gagues from piano wire,rivets,measurments etc) And the last problem i am facing is that i do have a rather big body type,And want to close off the sides of my armour,When i test-fitted it (uncut) I found out i have a large gap on the side's. I found out from the forms i can close these off with attaching the same kinda plastic under the armour,and making it flush on top with possible putty or some sorts to fill in the small gap. So dose anyone know where i can find extra ABS plastic for this enough so i just have to deal with the gaps on the armour insted of making multiple gaps. I am just finding it hard really to jump into it all. Any sorta tips would help,As time is of the essance for me as i am trying to organise to buy some of the essential parts so i can attend "For the Love of the force" Convention in manchester (as i study away as well i only have some weekends to at least assemble the armour) Thanks.
