Long time no progress... That have changed a bit now.

The build is more or less done. Need to give the TD a final layer of paint, build the shoes and do some cleanup.


Initial fitting of the belt(before the boxes and some random boots my wife had lying around(just to see how it looked with white boots)

Belt boxes attached

Since a Comic style backplate is required, I opted to build one of my own, based on reference from the comic book. Would have ordered one from Kev, but with the rediculous taxes and import fees here in Denmark, it seemed too expensive (it would be around 45$ total, plus shipping, because of taxes and fees!!)

The comic style TD. Needs some touch up paint job. Otherwise just needs to be attached

And I found some shoes, with a sole I liked. Had some leftover vinyl, from my TB, so I'm trying for my own shoe build :)

Boots are comming along. The ankle was a bit low and there would be a tiny gab between the back of the shins and the boots, when walking around, So I'm going to fix that :)

I just have a question about the kit. how does it work? is it like a "one time use" kit where you create the armor out of the kit, or do you kind of "mold" the armor out of the kit using some other material?

You get the kit in the form as the picture posted on page one.

Not sure I understand the "one time use" question, but this kit is like all other kits in this hobby. You assemble the pieces to make the armor. It can be used multiple times, like a set of clothes(ish), but if you are asking if it can be disassembeled and reassembeled, I would have to say no. You cut it to fit one person and glue it all together.
