    41st Elite armor paintup... Finished and Approved!

    I've been busy upgrading my Boba but I've also been working on my clone armor these past months.

    This is my armor painted up with the 41st Elite colors. I did some basic weathering and scratching. I plan do a couple of more layers/ colors of grime to match up with the shins (which I did first). After that I need to make some mods to my boots and weather those too.

    I have a radio made by SEEKER to add to the back as well. I just had it off to paint up the armor.

    When I have someone to photograph me I'll suit up and show you how it looks.

    Let me know what you think! Thanks!

    The holes in the backplate are for securing the radio.

    That looks great! I used to be obsessed with the 41st Elite armor, and it seems as if you've done an excellent job. Well done.

    Sorry for the low res images... all I had today was my phone camera.

    My shoulders are not exactly where they should be, the biceps should come up a bit too. I need to redo my strapping system I think.

    My thighs have had two inches taken off around the girth already and if I had to take off more I think I'd look like I had pin legs. I think some foam padding on the back of the thighs will help keep them in place.

    Another think layer of foam should also help the knees stick out a bit more so they don't get caught under the thighs.

    I also thing the rubber shoulder straps should be cut down another inch or so to tighen up the upper part of the chest/ back.

    Pay no attention to the shoes yet... I have to add some more velcro on the tops and figure out how to get the ankles smooth.

    I also have not yet installed the elbow and knee straps
