Hi all, time has come to start by TA build. I am currently recovering from the first of 3 surgeries (nothing like two torn rotator cuffs) so progress will be slow for a while. i currently have September/October targeted for my completion date and submitting my build to our GML for my initial 501st application. Hoping to join ya'll as a spotter a few times over the summer to get to know everyone :)

I have a thread over on ACD here: http://forum.armoredcavalry.net/index.php?/topic/2311-future-ta-signing-in/page__view__findpost__p__15557


I will post summaries here as I go along but the main progress and images will be over on ACD in my build thread.
Here is my starting picture :atat:

Thanks, already have them :wink:

Ran into a problem. ET has 2 sizes of tusks, and he sent me the larger ones, but the WTF ATAT kit needs the smaller ones. We are currently swapping tusks out.

I'll be watching this one for sure. It's a costume I'd like to tackle some day myself and I'll be excited to see it take form. Looks like you got a very good start.

Oh good on ya! I can't wait to watch the progress!

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star!

The resin greebles I received from Cueloopz on ACD are really, really good to include the tusks. He copies his parts on what was originally sourced for the ATAT driver, and his resin tusks are actually more screen accurate then ET's. I can't say enough good things about the community and staff over at ACD, small, close knit and awesome :clap:

But there just is something about real metal that makes one go mmmmmmmmmmm :lol:

Slowly coming along as time permits, Gloves finished, armor trimmed, circuit board done (base, I want to improve it if I have time later) and matching of locally available gray paint has started. I now have everything on hand for this build :D

Hey! I may have the smaller tusks if you still need them. They need cleanup though. :)
