I just finished building this baby and want to share the pics from my first test fit.
It's very easy to put on unassisted thanks to the SA strapping, and man do i love the flex of this beauty!

Now you guys tell me how to weather it convincingly. Any methods you guys prefer besides a good beating with rubber trim?
Oh, and I'm building another HDPE chipper style lid to go with this (CAP-West), but the TM lid stays in ABS colour for casual trooping . Wink

Paul just pointed out a couple minor details over at FISD:

- my belt snaps are not centered on the belt itself
- should've used pop rivets for the holster attachment
- didn't trim the ears enough
- should have used screws instead of pop rivets for the canister/deto clips

I guess I'll remedy most of these ASAP. Wink
Any ideas on how to remove snaps without destroying the belt?

To remove the snaps you can use side cutters Like this

I repositioned the faceplate because the initial tilt was too extreme and thus the face sat too high in the dome.

This is how it looks now:

1mm TM ANH with screen accurate strapping 5479419847_a30f39ba50_b
1mm TM ANH with screen accurate strapping 5480016992_c666efd3a0_b
1mm TM ANH with screen accurate strapping 5480013706_f85a81315a_b

After I snapped those pics, I shortened the ears and removed the flashing on the bottom (near the neck trim).

What size rivets were used to attach the holster to the belt?
And any ideas/suggestions how to remove the endcaps from the detonator? I just pushed them into place but can nit for the life of me take them off again... hot water bath didn't do anything. 1mm TM ANH with screen accurate strapping 22181

Gently heat them with a heatgun or hairdryer to remove the end caps.

Thanks Mark, I'll try that. Maybe air will do the job that water couldn't do!

....nothing else to familiar from you Wink
But one thing...the story with the chin strap, in ANH and ESB were the details relatively equal.
Was also with the chin strap? The question is, were the snaps always distributed equally?!... or was it always different?!?!
Dennis, you have on the left side (plan view at the helmet) 1 snap at the strap and on the right side, you have 2 snaps. I had only seen such a picture ( ESB helmet-2 snaps on the right side and 1 nsap ont the left)-

I think I know what you mean, Daniel...
Here's a pic from the insides of an ANH bucket:

1mm TM ANH with screen accurate strapping 5480889073_20589278ea

That's what I used as reference for all my stunt ANH helmets so far.

Talking about helmets, here is the base for the chipped, f-d up helmet to go along with the TM:

This is after weathering, again not really showing up in the photos (sucky camera, sucky photographer).

The 2nd pic shows that a painted helmet and unpainted suit can definitely go together!

Thanks guys! Smile

Check out the slight flexing of the chest plate - I love this suit!
And it really goes well with the chipped lid, don't you think?

Here's 2 more shots.

1mm TM ANH with screen accurate strapping 5499477083_e24e27a963_b

See the chest plate riding up on my left?
That's the only area (besides the gut... :D ) that seems a little problematic with the screen accurate strapping. I'll see what I can do about that.

Thanks, Ben! I too love the ANH feel of the TM.
The helmet in the pics above is no TM though, it's CAP-West.
