FoorballHelmet_black2webIt’s Squad Seven 501st Fantasy Football time.

Are  you ready for some Fantasy Football well so were some of the Squad 7 members, Some of the Squad7 members have started a Squad 7 Fantasy Football League this year. There are 8 team set to what seem an easy style of play format as most of us have no real idea how to do this. This is yet another way for our members to get together and get to know each other outside of trooping.

Draft Day, So we met today with our players scratched on paper and gathered up the list of players and positions and began our picks. It was an interesting mix of people and their knowledge of the players and some who like me have limited knowledge, picking and chatting our way through all our picks. we par-took in a lunch meal and marked off the taken players and plotter or guessed our why through our sixteen players for our roster.

I think most of us got a lot of what we wanted and some of us (BJ) kind of threw darts for their picks, so he will most likely win the whole dang thing.

So if you want to keep an eye on our progress just bookmark the follow link -> Squad7 FFL and you can keep up and watch all the excitement as the 2013 Squad 7 Season teams competes from week to week.

Hello everybody, well I had been at a stand still for a bit but I am back on the project. I have ordered all the remaining pieces and have completed the top and middle parts of the costume as seen in the photo provided. I am now working on the leg pieces and for some reason I am struggling with this. I  just can’t seem to wrap my head around a starting point. but I will push on and try and get it done before the weekend is gone. My hope is to get the Armor completed and Accepted before the next Art Walk in Jacksonville, Fl but we shall see. The photo is kind of grainy because it was taken in low light on my Iphone 3GS. Ya i am getting the 4GS at some point as it has a better camera lol… So that it for now and i hope my next  post will me be in a complete Stormtrooper Aromor suite. From then on it will be post about Troops that I will be doing with images to go with them.

Take Care

Tonight I worked on putting the belt together and mounting it to the abdomen plate. This was a pretty easy part of the project. I just had to make some measurements, do a little paint work, hot glue and a few drilled holes and I was ready to attach all the parts together. this was rather relaxing and fun compared to the stress of putting together the Helmet.  Tomorrow I plan to complete the belt and trim out the Abdomen plate and then move on to the chest and back plates. No picture tonight maybe tomorrow.

So tonight I jump in head first. Tonight I will glue the back of the helmet to the top of the helmet.  Now this will be the first time I use a large amount of the glue. this is scary for me because its way to easy to make a mistake or make a mess of things. So as instructed I marked, measured and marked and measured and I did it one more time just to make sure I got it right. I stood there looking at the glue and the helmet pieces and steadied my hands then took a deep breath and off i went. I set pieces in place so when I apply the glue its a quick pickup and then set in place and hold tight for the duration of time it takes to dry.  below are some image of how it turned out. look OK to me so far.
