Trooper Z

Trooper Z's TD Build...WIP

Recommended Posts

So I ordered and received an AM kit a few months ago, then I opened the BBB like everyone else does, then I shut it and started to re-read everything that I had already been over quite a few times. I decided to start with the bucket I figured if I can get that together the rest has to be easier. So here is my first installment of pics. I'll try to keep the work area cleaner next time. I know I need to probably raise the brow a bit more and I still have to install the mic tips.

Welcome aboard.

Lovely work on the paint so far, especially the traps, tears and frown.

If you’re going for the higher levels of accuracy, you might want to consider tweaking the tube stripes a little. Ideally, they should be around a pencil width from the cheeks. Your right cheek especially looks a little further than that from the pics.
Also, are they done using different templates? The right side stripes appear to be spaced closer to each other than the left.

Here’s some handy reference pics. :-)

If I’m not mistaken, those look like the “sandtrooper style” stripe templates from trooperbay. One side is more sparse than the other if I remember correctly.  All I know is that this is not based on the “stop that ship” helmet. I think the “ move along” helmet had more stripes on the left side, so maybe the stencil was trying to emulate that.

I wasn't sure on the spacing for the stripes thank you, I'll work on redoing them. I'm aiming for the "Move along" and I'l like to be PO at some point so getting it right the first time will save me rework in the end. I might also have to redo the ears to make more tube space to fit more stripes. Thank you both for the feed back. I'll work on it and post more pics.
