ATA Animated Clone Build

Post by syntax » Sat Nov 05, 2011 11:43 pm

So, I retrieved a brown, nondescript box from a certain in-Garrison armor maker whom we all know.

Image

What could be in the box, you ask?:

Image

Another TK? Nope!:

Image

I would like to say this is a proper build thread, but it won't be...this will basically be a progress picture thread.

Special Thanks to Brian "I can freehand a perfect circle with an exacto knife' Swedorski

Thigh trim comparison...we had to take a lot off.

Image
Leg fitting.

Chest, back attached.

Polyflex filled seam, sanded, touched up with glazing putty, resanded.

Forearm seamless setting.

When finished, this will be Stak from the Lightning Squad.

That's a strange looking Stormtrooper costume.

Well Darren, Brian finally made an official post about handing over the molds to Terrell so it's no longer "Super Secret".

Got the thighs glued and the other shin has be been poly-flexed. Gonna give you your first taste of real sanding tomorrow.

Got the visor finished, now I just need to do some cleanup on the helmet before painting.

Image

Come to think of it, I may cut out the side vents and actually put screen in them.

I would. You can add a fan blowing in on one side and blowing out on another. It would give you good ventilation. Do you have any visor material?

Yep, I have the visor material and some black nylon screen for the vents. I probably will not put them in until after I paint.

Wow, looks great. And I thought my TK build was difficult. If and when I ever decide to go Clone... I am just going to buy a used one! That is more skill and patience then I have... :thumbs:

The holiday season is going to slow me down a couple weeks. I hope to be finished by the end of January though.
