Redforce TD build (WIP)

Recommended Posts

Hello all... I've began my TD build at the end of March. I'm just getting over half way through the armor build so I've decided to create a thread to document my progress. I am shooting for a Sergeant build

I can probably use some advice at some point on TD details as I might have to change a few things. I am researching them as I go...so by all means please jump in and yell at me with some knowledge at any point (:

Armor - NE (I'm currently in the middle of building)

helmet - NE (already built by Darthvoorhees)

3 button ab plate - TM

Small Spanish pouches- Anthony/Blaster 8266

MP 40 pouches - military surplus

Pauldron - trooperbay

Handguards - Karin

Belt - trooperbay

boots - TK boots

Backpack - Quartermaster

E-11 - hyper-firm

Here are some progress photos

some shins

My thighs were built already. They are from my TK. When I built my TK last year...I didn't trim the length of them. I also didn't taper them down by the knees at all. They looked ok for a bit but, ultimately I built a new pair trimming them to the proper size..For my TD....I'm reconstructing my old TK thighs and trimming them to the proper length and bringing them in towards the bottom near my knees a bit. Thighs are also of the NE make...

here they are before reconstruction

Lou did a great job trimming those ears!

A suggestion if I may... Since you took the time to trim the thighs why not notch the outer parts to make them look more screen accurate. I did that on my NE thighs. Let me know if you have questions!

Good luck!... Hope we get to troop together soon!

Hey Paul! I am going to trim in the notch.... I did the thighs over a month ago...between then and now...I learned about the notch up at the top. I knew I've seen it before...but didn't realize until recently that it is an essential for all sandys...

Yes. Lou did a great job on the lid!

I'll Definitely hit you up if I need to. Thanks!

I'll be at the Lincoln Park library at the end of the month!
