    Nov 2, 2009, 5:00 PM - My 501st Clonetrooper Build and First Mission #1

    Hello guys,

    It's been a very long time since I last wrote on these boards...I mean...it's been YEARS! Now I'm posting because I would like to share with you my completed 501st CLonetrooper armor (OSCS kit). It took me 16 months to finish this armor for two main reasons:

    1) I moved twice internationally in the last year.

    2) It was the first time I took a Dremel in my hands. As a 501st Legion member, my primary costume so far was Vader "Pre-suit" aka "Bad guy Anakin"...

    So, finally, last weekend I was able to enjoy the results of more than a year of work, wearing my costume for the first time. I wore it for 9 hours on Saturday and 7 hours on Sunday so I am feeling pretty confident that the costume is correctly assembled.

    Here you can find some pictures of the WIP phase. During the process, I tried to model all the parts to make them as close to my body as possible, trying to reach the look of the movie. You can see what I mean when you'll see the pictures of the upper legs: the right one is "out of the box", the left one is "after the cure"

    I really hope you'll enjoy the pictures and please feel free to post all the comments you want!

    Thanks guys, I'm glad you like it.

    I'll do my best to be more active on these boards...When I registered I was just a Recruit of the Italica Garrison, now I'm the CO...time runs quickly! Now that I had my first "armor-building" experience, I feel more part of your great family! Sewing Anakin's costume might have been fun for a while...but nothing compared to this!!!
