    Cont., - Sci-Fire TDH Clone Trooper - Part II

    After analyzing the previous thread, I thought it was time to issue a new thread. It was heavy in photos and verbage, and taking longer to download.

    With that being said, I also re-evaluated the approach I have been using documenting this build-out, and I have decided to change direction. I am converting from a detailed verbose documentry, to a more simple photographic version. Time is precious and I rather use that time to focus on the myriad of projects I have on deck.

    Here below are images test fitting of both Left Forearm and Left Shoulder Armor. The left forearm is at 95% completion. The shoulder piece has been trimmed and sanded, and the undercut Dremeled. Like the forearms, I am rebuilding the thickness of the part to be more accurate:

    Wow, 4 days shy of 90 since I updated this thread. I will be updating this project later this evening, got to get a status on this, where is my yellow pad and clip board. I have no clue where I am at on this.

    *dust...dust dust, dust...dust* cough hack cough hack hack cough. Well here I go again, almost two years later and precisely point to point within two stock markjet crashes; this thread has returned from the archives. After 22 years of servitude to the same corporate entity, the owners retired and I took the opportunity to execute a full career change/mid life re-boot. I am pretty well settled in and now, I can get this project, and few others moving again!

    Today I will be spending some time repairing some broken image links to this and the original (Part One) thread. What's been really exciting for me is that the Sci-Fire AOTC helmet has finally been finished after a couple of years, and Marcelo is making me one this weekend, time permitting. The timing is perfect! Below is an cropped image of the recent, first run of raw Sci-Fire helmets.

    They look to be spot on. The overall mass and scale are in perfect harmony. Cant't wait to see this in person and on my work bench!

    Not yet, I read at CTN that they just bought some fresh chemicals and will be pulling more helmets this weekend.
