So after countless hours of reading through forums and checking out blogs documenting the step by step process of building a suit, I finally decided to make the plunge. I decided to go with an ATA Sandtrooper build and I’m pretty excited about it! I made contact and was put on the list to receive my suit. I was told it was about a 16 week wait, but my helmet was available to ship immediately. I figured I’d start working on that while I wait for the rest to ship.
So today i was pretty excited to come home and see the brown cardboard box sitting on my doorstep, thankfully it shipped quickly because I was overly anxious to get that helmet in my hands!
Once I opened the box and laid out all the pieces I became nervous when I started looking at all the cutting and trimming that I have to do. For now I will set everything aside and spend some time gathering the necessary tools and reading as many details as I can about other people’s builds.
To be continued…
