    Clone Trooper Armor Help

    Howdy,

    I have some clone trooper armor thats been sitting in a box for the past couple years and finally decided to work on it (trying to get a clone/jedi ready for halloween). But I'm having a few hang ups. The armor is very thin (I think it may be sintra, but I'm not sure as I dont know what sintra actually feels/looks like other than I know its thin). I need to know what I can coat the back of the armor in to reinforce it and what I can paint the armor with (as it came bondo'ed in some spots). Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Sorry for no pics, I'll try and get some up later after work.

    Re: Clone Trooper Armor Help

    sintra isn't necessarily thin... clone and TK armor is usually made of the material that is pulled on a vac table (i don't have a vac table or TK armor so if i'm wrong help me out here guys) which is usually a thinner material than the sintra that i used to make my fett armor.
    to answer your question, fiberglassing usually does the trick and i'm pretty positive it'll stick to sintra or the thin stuff you're talking about (the ruffkin gauntlets i have are the same material i believe so i know what youre talking about)
    best of luck to ya. post some pics too

    assembling a clone suit is... fun... yeah, fun. depending on the kit it's either fun like getting stitches or fun like being on fire.



    seriously though, it's a fair piece of work with most kits out there. if you're looking to use the suit with the 501st, try clonetroopers.net... the folks there will probably be able to identify the kit and offer specific advice on it.

    Sorry guys, still not pics (GF out of town with camera), but I should have some up tomorrow. But, where can I get liquid fiberglass and some white paint that will fit this armor? I know its a large request without pics or anything, but any help is appreciated.
