1mpulseS0D's build thread

Post by 1mpulseS0D »

This is the build thread i got on FISD. I thought it was nice to show it here too! Be aware that it is straight from FISD.

And so it's my turn to turn over to the dark side! I picked up by brown box of happiness containing a wonderful AP kit! I have waited over 4½ months for it and finally. I'm the proud owner of a AP armor! I just can't describe the feeling i got now, and i bet all of you have felt it. It's just surreal. This will be an interesting build and I've already begun with the handplates! I'm going to try to go centurion but since it's 1½ more years until i turn 18, i got some time to make it perfect! I'm aiming at a ANH stunt armor!

And here we are, after about 5 hours of cutting I think I'm halfway through the trimming process :)

How does it look? I think i should trim some more around the eyes, or is it ok? I'm having a hard time getting the screw from the ears into the helmet so i can fasten it. It's like the screws are too short.

Looks good! If the screws are too short, just replace them with longer flat head screws. :)

It worked out, i just placed wrong screws there :P Ears are on the helmet now and the only things that i need now is S-neck rubber and new hovi mics. Painting will be done as soon as i get some paintbrushes :)

I got some paintbrushes today and I'm ready to paint the frown. But I'm unsure if i masked off a good part of the frown. I wont start painting until I've got a recommendation on what to do :) Better safe than sorry!

I would have painted without the tape, looks much better when you don't have the "tape edge" on the paint. And you can easily see how it turns out and work with it.

I did it freehand, painted all the things that where supposed to be gray on the helmet. Pictures of it comes up tomorrow when the paint is dry :)
