THE TROOPER Blackhole Build

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, been here a while and finally decided to build one of my favorite troopers, the shadow trooper. I purchased the bucket from Arakyel, one of the best in my opinion.



Next came "THE BOX", which actually came today. Sorry about the feet...





Well thats about it for now. I will keep you all posted on my WIP in the weeks to come,or months,lol. Thanx Walt, Thanx Jim.... :thumbsup:

Ok....hi guys,al speaks highly of you so here i am....i have already built a blackhole and sold it,,getting the feeling i need to do more,al asked if we want to build a set...dah..sure,so he shows up at my house with a big brown box and a s#@t eating grin....ok down to the factory we go...day one we just sort the armor and match it up,,,,i must say i have built 3 of these kits and every time i am impressed with how well it is packed,,,all the other kits i have built,none come so well packed,,,that said. day 2 trimming and fitting,,,,now you must understand,most of the time i do this on my own and it is much easer to do with 2 people,BUT,with als body,he is the hardest to fit cuz the guy has tiny legs the size of tree trunks,anyone that has built an ATA knows how much room is in there,,,thr upper legs we had to cut like half the langht and the calfs i will be lucky if they stay closed....as is probably smiling ear to ear now....we got the arm top and bottom glueing now and the butt and back attached and the front attached,,,i would have pics but al did not bring his camera.so tomorrow we will have pics and legs glued,,,,now some one tell al to get a dang belt

Nice work so far and great photos. the assembly is top-notch. Of course what really matters is how well is fits you. I can't wait to see this on you. I have a feeling it is going to be stellar.
