Hello, after almost one years waiting, our TX-kits has shipped!
I'm super excited, and still a bit terrified, haha.
For those who don't know what we're gonna build
Myself, I'll build a Shadow Stormtrooper
and Louise, 99114 will be building a Novatrooper Medic

I'll keep this thread updated when the kits arrive!

99114's TX kit will prob. arrive tomorrow, so now begins the hunt for the right tools.
I got the glue ready and the precision knife.
So next time I hit Kristianstad, I'll get myself some clams etc.
Good thing there's a lot of tutorials on the internet via forums etc.
And I'll probably have to trim down the thighs.
ALRIGHT! CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

Cool! BBB-day! :)

(Oh. You should think about registering an account at Photobucket or similar picture-hosting service. We want lots of pictures from your build and if you'll attach them to the forum directly you'll soon run out of space :) )

Alright, using my flickr-account.
Quick question, shall I trim it all the way to the edge? (The "inner" wrist part)
Just want to be 100% sure before I cut again.

Lol, yah I'm a bit terrified for that, good thing I got a couple of extra ears with the kit.
Today I've cut out the eyes and 8 teeth, so now I can eat n' see!
Now I've gotta fix myself a drill for ears and sand down eyes n teeth.
Selfie on a friday!
