This is the new way for strapping arms to me. Notice all 3 parts are connected together. Also having the arms seperate from the rest of the armour makes it easer to get dressed and you can take off the main body suit and leave the arms on if you need to.

I am using 1 inch black elastic in a continual piece holding the bells and biceps and then on the inside of the elbow a 2 inch piece of black elastic holds up the forearms. 3/4 inch black elastic is glued to the bottom edge of the bell to keep them in place.

Nothing much to see here, its all pretty standard stuff. But i have used dungaree bib and brace style adjustable thingymajigs so that the ab plate and chest plate are adjustable. This is so that i can move the parts up or down for a nice snug fit.

The armour body
Image
Image

The finished belt, i used plastic weld to put the rivet covers on and the drop boxes are rivited to the 1 inch white elastic which is simply looped over the belt so they can freely move around
Image
Image

The legs with the sniper knee plate and ammo pack. The joining strips on the back of the calfs are 1 inch wide, where as the rest of the joining strips on the legs are 25mm

Ok i have had a little break from building anything but am now back on track, so let the armour chronicles continue..

We shall call this phase 2 , ESB.

I did get the ESB stunt kit from TM but as i was previously in a hurry to get trooping in my new armour so i used my Dan Laws ANH stunt helmet and latex rubber glove combo from PugMan.

I have trimmed my ESB snow trooper style hand plates and here they are with rubber gloves. I may get some silk gloves in the future, im not sure yet.

I was also very lucky to have the company of Pete aka StukaTrooper over last night and he graciously offered to help re-assemble my TM helmet. I had already put this together but was not happy with the look.

You see i have opted for the rarer looking low brow, hero style seen in ESB with only 3 teeth cut out. I like to be different :)

Pete did an awesome job reworking the helmet while i polished off the sandwiches.. I have found the TM helmet one of the hardest to build up because there are not any trim lines on the ears to work along. But Pete's model skills shinned through here. The outcome is very nice, thanks you Pete.

I have added the decals from Mike TK4510, which are the most accurate made to date and the hovi mic tips and painted the frown and vocoder and still have to add the lense, neck trim and paint the ears.

Ok i have been working on my new belt for the ESB suit over the last couple of days.

Here is is just before i riveted the plastic ammo part to the canvas belt
Image
Image
Image

I have also repainted the frown and vocoder on the helmet as i didn't like the matte paint i tried. This time it is satin. I also detailed the ears and neck trim. All i need to do to this now is add the lens and foam liner. Oh and paint the screws white..
Image
Image
Image

Here is the belt riveted together and with and without the rivet covers glued on. I will work on the drop boxes later. Remember this kit comes with separate rivet covers and ab plate buttons, so be sure not to get them confused :)
