TK-12953 Shadow Scout Build Log


Recommended Posts

Thanks for sharing!  At a glance here I am somewhat concerned about the look of these files.  Others can def chime in, but the. bicep raised area appears overly raised.  The greeblie looks like it is part of the print and the recessed area it should sit in doesnt look correct.

Likewise the chest shape and indent just seem off for some reason.

Anyways I hate to sound like a downer.  Everything may look good in person and I could just be acting overly wary of 3d print files (because they are everywhere)…but still thought I should at least mention the concerns.

May I ask where you sourced the files?  Are you aware of others using them?

Hey David,

I got them from ChrisThePropGuy who indicated that he had several folks get approved with them.

The greeblie is just set in there for the photo, I haven't attached it yet.

Thank you for your concern, I'll reach out to my GML and have him take a look as well.

I also have a set from MrPoopie form the Pathfinders detachment.

The one of the left is ChrisThePropGuy (Flat Black) the one on the Right is MrPoopie (Gloss Black).

They looked the same to me, I just used the ones from Chris because they included the helmet.

I think the part we are seeing is usually the ridge on the chest goes all the way to the neck, at least that is what I'm used to seeing with ROTJ TB's. The bicep stuff looks fine to me.

Ultimately, the GML will be the one reviewing it and approving or not approving, so it is good that you are checking with them!

Thank you for the input guys.

I'll keep you in the loop as I build.

I think it is just hard to see in the picture or it isn't as defined. You can see the ridge all the way up, but I think it may start to flatten sooner than others. I've got a friend that is showing off his TB at a troop this weekend, I'll take it up and compare with him.

Okay, after some time off, I'm back at this. I ordered my soft goods from CB Props. And I'm going to try and make my own boots based on the post from the pathfinder forum. https://forum.501stpathfinders.com/topic/19708-biker-scout-boots-tutorial/#comment-178103

Just need to source the boots and marine vinyl. Hopefully some updated pictures coming soon.

Boots…picked up my vinyl back then from Joann Fabrics.  Sourced the actual boot from KMart but they dont exist anymore do they lol?  WalMart used to have some decent ones on the cheap as well.

@Jsilvius Only thing I notice is the pill shaped hole. References Ive seen (and my own greeblie) have an off-centered “cap” that has a rounded dome. My explanation is pretty bad lol…see pic.IMG_3946.thumb.jpeg.e2436ca8f3c11c988837ff8b8a4fe1bf.jpeg

I haven't added that yet. I was looking for it in the parts list and final found it. It is on the printer now.

I think I need to work the chest plate a bit more. It looks, okay. I started work on the back plate and one of the drop boxes.

Waiting my soft goods to arrive. I'm hoping to have this all complete by March, but we'll see.

Getting there.  Yea the big thing w anything 3D printed is going to be those print lines.  They cannot be visible at all.  Chest they are definitely visible still.

Painting…just check around, some of these spots look like you may have drip that needs to be sanded. Then again, just triple check your print lines are not visible.

March…totally do-able!  You got this!IMG_3956.thumb.jpeg.1bcdc14a8156adfafd20412d3d65bad2.jpeg
