Phase II Captain Rex (Animated) WIP

Post by clonin_around »

Hi! My name is Josh and I'm 17 and working on my Captain Rex armor. I already have a thread on the Clone Trooper Detachment Forums but I'm starting one up here to document progress as this is the area I'm in.

Here is where I am at now, and you can follow all previous progress over at: https://501stclonetroopers.com/forum/in ... ent-313947

I still have a lot of work left to do, but I cannot wait to hear your guy's opinions on this!! So excited to continue this journey!

A week after my armor arrived, here is my trimming progress!

Image

The kit is from Imperial Surplus, and it mostly all vacu-formed ABS.
After receiving the kit I marked where to cut and began doing basic trimming. I understand it isn't final, I'm doing most of it and after glueing and filling (using Evercoat Gloss, a flexible bondo) I will do more work so the return edges all match nice and pretty!

Most trimming began with score and snap (using a box cutter and then bending it back to snap it off), then using a dremel and hand sanding to make it all nice and neat.
What do you all think? Any notes?
