    May 23, 2009, 1:18 PM - New guy checking in from the UK #1

    Hey all - been browsing TDH for a month or two - ever since I picked up a Hasbro Clone Trooper helmet to modify, in fact, but I decided to wait until I had something to show before I posted here. I'm from a LARP and Airsoft background and naturally I'm a huge Star Wars fan so I'm not exactly in unfamiliar territory!

    Anyway I'm making good progress on my son's trashcan armour (pictures here) which is turning out to be a gentle introduction to working with plastics and sewing.. then when that's done I'm planning on modifying the Clone helmet to get some all-important bondo experience. Then when that's done I'll be having a go at Skip's Republic Commando templates to see what I can do with them

    Thanks guys, and no I haven't joined any clubs in the UK, although the only one I'm aware of is the Mandalorian Mercs (I guess they have a UK chapter) but I guess there are plenty of others. If my son's armour turns out alright then I'll probably make myself a set too, even though I'm more of an RC at heart

    Thanks for that, Synn!

    Unfortunately I'm in the Netherlands for a week on a course, but I'm looking forward to picking up where I left off once I return to the UK. Though I'm happy with the progress so far:
