I'm just going to use this as a build log for a canon crusader that has a tendency to get dropped due to complexity. So wooo for starting a hard build!



Im sure the helmet gives it away what character I am planning on doing but if that doesn't then the close duplication of Ref Aldrin's build thread will. However I have a 3d printer at my disposal so aim cutting some corners with technology.
I know it looks like a tiki mask but bear with me while so go through this slow process of creating a nice kit.

Yes, slowly. However I had been working on armor templates two years ago that alive managed to hold on to so that i can simply trace and cut the armor and then shape it. It's a nice sturdy cardstock style poster board so it's quite effective and should last several uses.

Ya, a Rohlan Dyre build.  I'm looking forward to how your WIP pans out.  I haven't seen someone attempt this since Ref Al'drann and bh1138.  Also Ru'Der Marekar had a great WIP on making the armour for Rohlan's that he used with his kit, but alas the plague of photobucket with his WIP.

Oh, and I am going to be in your clan next week for Force Friday.  I already worked out the details with JasterRaiak and I will be bringing some 3mm plates for Kaz xan to help him out.  Visiting my in-laws in Yakima.

I'm on a slow build so it might take a bit since I have some pretty high expectations as far as most of the soft goods go. I've technically been working up to this point over the last two years. I'm more inclined to build Rohlan than I am to build a Boba due to the shear costs of a Boba for building. With Rohlan I can do majority of the stuff with the gear I already have.

Did some more tinkering today. Wasn't happy with the pvc fittings I got for this project so I'll be 3d printing majority of the components for the pack itself as well as anything else that i find I may need.

Picked up some burgundy vinyl for my vest. Vinyl isnít my first choice of vest material but I couldnít afford a $200 piece of garment weight leather.

Moving right along, Bow.  Keep us updated!

I used Vinyl on my first (Kol) kit, and it's still holding up after 70+ troops.  It works just fine as long as you keep it ventilated in spots.

Not a huge update but I started some work on the base blaster for this kit. Just took out all of the electronics and started working on screw holes and the recessed lettering. Iím using the same base as Ref Aldrin did with his build.
