    RKD ESB Armor for TD8266

    Finished this full set of RKD armor for an awesome 501st member Anthony "TD 8266". I was commissioned for the full deal again. Trimming, sanding and all prep plus paint and assembly. I want to give some props to RKD. I noticed a very small issue with the pull on the center diamond. Will immediately shipped a new center diamond without hesitation. Not only is Wills armor great but his customer service is phenomenal. Which is really important since as of lately I feel that is lacking in this hobby and even here at TDH. Anyway here it is.

    Beautiful work. Is this topical damage? Shoulder looks perfect!

    Side note; isn't the collar plate different on the ESB version, armor wise? Looks like the bottom on all the armor I see has the ROTJ cut at the bottom of the collar, and ESB is almost straight across .

    RKD ESB Armor for TD8266

    Thanks for the kind words gents! This is a combo of layered and topical which I believe is how they did the original armor. This is RKD armor. I'm not an extra on the shapes of the armor between the two. Good question

    If you are talking about the slight angle on the bottom of the collar plate, the answer is no. All the armor are/were made from the same molds, so the small shape differences are because of the dents (which distorts a bit the shape, especially the ones from the edges) and the way they are subject to tension by the back plate/jetpack or other sources. Here is an example of the hero suits and I don't see any major difference between the armors:

    Wow! Thanks for clearing that up Rafal! Wondered about it for some time as even at the top right of the page on TDH the ESB collar plate looks so flat on the bottom edge.

    I'm not an esb expert, but that armor looks great! I really like the shoulders.. Did you paint the decals? Not sure if you said that somewhere or not..

    Hi folks, I got the armor today. The set in the pics and I must say that the pics do not do it justice. I have done several different kinds of armor and this is the most amazing paint up I have ever seen. The detail is crazy. Id swear it came straight out of battle. I cant wait to get it all put together. Thanks brother for all the hard work. Can't wait to see what you do with the gauntlets.
