New old guy...

Postby shanester » Thu Sep 15, 2016 2:55 pm

Hi all! My name is Shane Aubrey and I live in Harahan right at the edge by River Ridge. I am a long time SW fan after seeing the the original in 1977.

I always wanted to get TK armor and do some fun stuff in it, but I never found time or spare funds to invest. That was before Anovos released the TK kit. I have mine now and am looking to start it soon. My goal is to have the armor ready for the Wizard New Orleans Comic Con in January. As anxious as I am to start my build, I also do not want to make any rookie mistakes, so I am hoping to find some help amongst the Bast Alpha ranks. I am on Facebook so feel free to drop me a line.

Hi Shane. We are happy to have you join us on the boards and eventually in the Bast Alpha. As you are working on your armor, I would invite you to join us a wrangler. We always need people to take photos, help us dress and look out for those with limited vision in their helmets.

The best advice I can give you for building a TK is whitearmor.net

That site is the ultimate Stormtrooper build site. We also have several people in your area who have build TKs.
If you have questions, please ask.

I'd love to volunteer as a wrangler. I think it'd help me get familiar with the scene. Thanks a lot!

I am about 50% done with my TK armor. Confidence is building. :trooper:

Its been a few days since I took this shot, but the struggle is real. All cut out and sanded. Now assembly. One thigh drying.

That definitely looks like the beginning of a TK!

Thanks a lot. I'm in Harahan right where it meets River Ridge. I look forward to possibly meeting you.
