TX : Shadow Stormtrooper Rebuild
The 501st Costume Reference guide can be viewed here :
I've recently purchased an old set of TX armour which was in need of desperate repair. I got it at a great price, but at the cost of a lot of time and work. This page is the work in progress of how I went about re-sizing, refinishing, and rebuilding the set of armour. Even though I will be working on multiple pieces at the same time, and they will be completed at different times - I will be updating each section from start to finish so its a linear progress report.
Lets begin with the helmet!
After taking it apart, cleaning the glue, sanding the paint, I am ready to start rebuilding the helmet. I started by tack welding the front and back pieces together through high-friction plastic welding.
Next update on helmet to come, It will be posted with this section.
