ISBEAR's commndo build

Post by 29996 »

Hello there, I'm ISBEAR/Kristoffer.
I have bought and gotten a RC TZA, and started slowly with it. I have already started posting on ctn. But figured I should make one here as well.
So I decided for Niner Skirata a while back and I think it will fit good with the armor.
Soo... pics and stuff coming up soon.

so, helmet is around 50% done, opened up the visor area and the fan openings on the side, then I'l just need to paint it and put visor, fans and maybe two little speakers and a mic.

next up, washing all the silicone of the armor and then start to glue parts together

so another update,
Glued the biceps together and just need to cover up the seam and fix the return edge. Image
now I glued the calfs togehter, I made alitle mistake so it didnt close togheter with glue on the middle on one side, hope thats not gonna be a problem.

also started to test fit some other parts to see if they looked alright when togheter Image

putting togheter to see how things fit and I meet kind of a problem.
the belt on the lower bodyarmor dont align, unsure if something like this is fixable with a filler or not?
Also someone at ctn suggested that maybe I've gotten one big and one small piece. Image

Gaps in the glue dont matter, youre either going to bondo or sludge the seam before you primer it... and then re-bondo/sludge and prime it til its perfectly smooth ;)

the problem more is that the belt is 1cm wider on one piece than on the other one. Isnt that to much for glue and filler?

i forgot to quote in the "calf" bit.. i'd contact the maker about the diaper though.
It looks way to wonky to fix.
