Hello,

welcome o the MEPD.

You can start your built here in this Thread. Show us your TK and then  how we can help you turn it into a TD.

Regards bigwam

So I started this journey in hopes of building a TK from Walt's. I was given the option to switch to a TD and the idea sparked a new sense of excitement!! Here are pics of the progress thus far of the TK. I welcome any and all advice and opinions! What is everyone's opinion on weathering? Looking for one of the easier options. Which acrylic colors, fuller's earth?

Unfortunately, I can not help you there.
But if you want to buy a Pauldron in very good quality, take one of trooper1:

I would paint the tubestripes first. Are your trapezoids not hand painted yet?

Is it possible to find a link that shows the pictures directly? That makes it a little easier.

Hey mate, have a look at this thread, it should help you to post the pictures here directly, so we can see them:

 

I think you are on a good way as your weathering is concerned but just as Bigwam has pointed out, I would highly recommend painting the tubestripes first before weathering the helmet.

Your trapezoids should be handpainted and extend a little further:

just as you can see with the original helmets:

I also think that the brow is sitting too low, most Sandtroopers had a rather high brow and a somehow surprised look;)

I am using Imgur but I am still trying to figure it out. I did the tube stripes this evening and am going to hand paint the trapezoids above the brow as well. I also fixed the brow so it is not as low as it was. Thank you for your suggestions!!!
