    New Clone Tropper Armor

    Just got this in. WOOOHOOOO!!!! Clone trooper armor from R2Lass on clonetroopers.net
    Everything looks real good but I also have no basis for comparison. The plastic is nice and thick,standard 1/8 ". It is a little thin on the chest and back sides but most of that will be trimmed away anyway, so no biggie there. I'm diggin it and will more than likely start it after the new year and after I finish upgrading my custom Mando.

    Yes, it looks great. Are you going for a Utapau Shadow Trooper or a Gree?

    Re: New Clone Tropper Armor

    Haha good luck I remember when I got my own kit, was sooo happy

    You bought it without helmet, straps and belt ?

    @Thaxos: Last time I checked it was around 300$ for armor (w/o shipping), might have changed though.

    My armor is just ready for painting, want to see pics ?

    Re: New Clone Tropper Armor

    It was around $400.00 with shipping I believe. Yea the belt I'm gonna try my hand at making. I've already made trooper style pouches but the new ones will be more accurate. I'm gonna try for a commander Gree. We'll see how it works out. The helmet I'll be hopefully doing a trade with the local 501st in tucson.The straps will probably be made orI'll save up an buy them from R2lass or OSCS if they have them available.

    Re: New Clone Tropper Armor

    It's nothing special of course, as it's "only" cut, glued, sanded, filled with putty, but gives an idea of final look

    Wow, 400$ ? I got everything you see on the above picture for 570 (with shipping).

    Re: New Clone Tropper Armor

    Yes, it's from Lisa as well (as most of the things on this pic). This type is no longer produced, but a new one is available, however it's more expensive (don't know how much exacly).

    "Only" because I think that is about 60% done. Painting and assembly still to do

    Few words of comment on it:
    - Last 2-3 boxes on each side are too far from each other, meaning there is nearly no place for TD once it's rounded and fitted to me (I'm pretty slim), but even using it's full length it leaves little place for td,
    - it's gray... so it needs to be painted and from what I've seen it's not easy to keep the paint on something that will be bent. I plan to keep it in it's 'round' position at all times to ensure minimum paint chipping.
    - it's foam and solid, yeah. Hard to cut it right, but luckily not so much of it in visible places was required

    Keep us posted if you make any progress And remember to measure 10 times before cutting.

    Re: New Clone Tropper Armor

    Hmmm.Never thought about the belt length and keeping all the boxes apprpriatley spaced.I'll keep that in mind.Measure ten times before cutting? Hell yea,I'm right there with ya on that one. I'll definatley put up progress photos. Hopefully in about a month.lot of other things going on and, well, you all know how that goes.

    Re: New Clone Tropper Armor

    Sure we know I started my build in September and didn't have much time on it, so Christmas break and New Year were my only chance to get things ready for painting. Studying in another city does not make things easy.
    More advices to come as you make progress

    Will you be getting accessories like compad or knee detail ?

    Compad=Yes depending on what Gree has I need to do more resarch. And what Knee detail do you speak of?

    Check this site out:
    http://www.kaminoquartermasters.net/Gallery_Alpha.php
    There is a picture for it, as well as for other parts you may want to get or make yourself

    On the picture I posted there is compad visible on left hand (which is really right forearm, but left on the pic) and there is the knee detail on the left knee (hardly visible, but it is there
