    Finished my TK mannequin display.

    Just feel like showing off my Tk that i finished today, apart from the E11 and holster.
    The mannequin i bought from ebay was way too tall ( aren't you a little tall for a stormtrooper?)
    so i chopped him up, i took 2 inches from his waist and a further 2 and a half inches from his thighs.
    I left his arms untouched as i wanted that long arm look from some of the ANH promo shots and i think i'm pretty close

    Only thing is now my wife said "you're not leavin that there it will fall on the children"
    DRAT!!! spoil sport!!!

    Looks really great man! A display like this is one of the things I`ve already been dreaming about for a long time. ****, I`ve got to find some space in my home!
    A real eyecatcher, so the place next to the TV maybe won`t be the best one.
    Is it a RS trooper?

    Thanks Spaar , you're right i would spend too much time looking at it and not at the TV lol! it's not an RS,but it is british ,it's an SDS and i bought it back in 2007 when i knew not of the dispute and controversy that would arise about these TK's. The guy i bought it from claimed it was the first one sold to the public back in 2004/2005 so it's got that curved brim on the lower chest piece. Not too bad a shape to be in for a 9year old TK i would say. I've made a special shelf half way down the staircase so i see it everytime i walk downstairs.

    Great looking display! I also really like that shelf you made. Seems like a good place to display it without people bumping into it and what not. Fantastic.
