    Question: Need Dimensions for Clone Armor parts

    Hi all, I'm working on a pepakura AotC clone trooper but found that some parts, specifically the ab, hand, elbow, knee and boot plates might be better accomplished through sheets of plastic bent to shape. I have been looking around for good armor templates and flatpatterns but I can't seem to find any. If anyone has any that they are willing to offer, that would be excellent. However, if not, I would really appreciate any dimensions available for the armor above, that way, I could produce a template from the measurements.

    If anyone has a clone trooper kit that they would be willing to take these measurements from for me I would really appreciate it. The dimensions I would need for each piece would be:

    Ab plate:

    -Max./Min. height
    -Front (top edge) Slope start point/end point
    -Approx circumference
    -Min./Max. height/width for front grooves
    -Angle/curvature of flare for front grooves
    -starting height for flare on front grooves
    -placement location of holes in ab plate
    -middle section (between grooves) height/width and slope/flare (if any)

    Hand plate:

    -Min./Max. width
    -Length
    -Angle measurements

    Knee plate:

    -Height/Width of overall plate
    -Height/width of area where strap is attached
    -Height/width/depth of center box-like projection
    -Angle measurement/approximate curvature of the edges

    Elbow:

    -Height/Width of overall plate
    -Height/width of area where strap is attached
    -Angle measurement/approximate curvature of the edges

    Boot Plate/Strap:

    -Length/width
    -curvature
    -angle measurements


    This is a lot of work and any help will be deeply appreciated. Hopefully from this information, and some good reference images, I can engineer some templates which I can share on this site.
    Any help is welcomed: ref images and dimensions.

    Thank you all so much!
