    Aug 18, 2016, 8:22 PM - Supertrooper ready for upgrading... #1

    Have to say first off that I love this costume.

    I had started to put it together and had ordered stuff before I was pointed towards this site. Ah well lesson learnt, do more research.
    I was very happy with the way this turned out and it went down very well at a convention in Dublin recently.
    I am now thinking of doing ALL the upgrades that would be needed for MMCC or 501st clearance standards.

    Parts as it stands:
    Helmet from ebay. Had GATOR in the visor area. Maker perhaps?
    Armor from etsy. Kripton Top.
    Gauntlets from a friend. Lonewolf. Known for his great Biker Scout lids.
    Soft parts from Evolution Props.
    Ammo belt from ebay which I now wear the correct way up...
    Jetpack mostly made by me from plans found on here. Thrusters from shapeways. Rocket from ebay.
    Lazer rifle built from an airsoft UZI, a lightsaber torch and plans found on here.

    May take a bit of time getting it up to standard but I'll hopefully get there in the end...

    Looks good! The CRLs for this are really in depth but make for a nice challenge. I have been buying as many Supertrooper specific parts as I can and will be making all the parts for the sling gun , the uzi and some other things. I have cast versions of most of these parts and am just waiting on the right machinist for metal versions. Mine is far from perfect yet but let me know if you need any help!

    01Hawk- I have been lurking about and following your build with a lot of interest and jealously. lol
    Loving how neat your jetpack is looking. Your whole suit and attention to detail is fantastic...

    That is a thing of beauty right there. I had a feeling I spotted you and a lady fett in the Dublin Comic Con this year (I wasn't able to make it myself but saw lots of pics).
    Looks amazing @Battrooper well done on the jetpack build!

    Looks great! If I could make one suggestion would try to correct the large gap in the visor/mandible area.

    What? I love that gap. I can see really well out of it compared to my Stormtrooper...

    Not a lot I could do with it. Heating the lid to pull them in pulls the whole thing out of shape. It's the way the thing was sculpted. Better one needed I fear...

    Yes that was myself and my wife at Dublin on the Saturday this year. That was our first outing together in our Mandalorian costumes. Hers is a custom of her own design...

    Using TDH's ST Gallery
    The flight suit definitely is a different color than the armor, but it just looks like it's a different colored white instead of darker. I believe the flightsuit is just white cotton, and to me a combination of armor painted with Rustoleum Glossy White, and Man Of War's Flight Suit pretty closely reflect what can be seen in the gallery.
