    Hiya! So I'm an official member over at the Mando Mercs with a custom mando named Parjai Droten. Long story short, I am going to start building a Supertrooper costume, and figured this would be a perfect place to keep a secondary WIP. You guys are an unbelievable wealth of knowledge. On my previous non-canon build I gained so much insight just by lurking here. I figure while doing a canon build I might as well post up with the pros.

    Currently I do not have any photos, as I have just started the plans on this build. Below is the checklist I am using based on the Supertrooper CRLs for the Mando Mercs.
    This list is not as detailed as I want just yet (especially for this forum), but it should give you all an idea of where I am at and what I plan. Any input is appreciated.

    Helmet
    NME Props Mercenary Lid - ordered

    Flight suit
    MoW flight suit
    I had an extra from my first build that the tailor made legs and arms too short. I was planning on bleaching it out to be white. That failed miserably! It is now a translucent yellow!
    Ordered a new suit this evening.

    In the screen test video for the supertrooper, he makes specific note of the electronics in the left chest, so they are definitely there for the ST. Glad to see more people embracing the white fett!

    Scary necro thread. It has been over a year since I started this project.

    I originally started this build to attend a friend's wedding. He had it "themed" and all guest had to wear an all white outfit. I figured why not do a Supertrooper. I started the build and got a good way into, but no where near complete. I had a little over two months I think when I started this.

    The photo shows where I was at for the wedding (and currently still am). I know there are millions of things wrong with the build right now. I'm mainly posting up here as a way to help me keep motivation on restarting this build and to show where I am restarting from.

    Good luck my friend. Supertrooper is deceptively easy, but in practice it's so tough because everything is impossible to source.

    It is off to a good start! I have a few Supertrooper parts of you still need them.. I hate being critical of anyone’s build but the helmet looks a bit tall or something. Maybe it’s just the picture? I have a Supertrooper that I have been working on a bit if you need any help.
     
  8. The helmet just needs the ear caps. I looks good so far!

    texasbhoy The suit is looking off to a great start though. Supertroopers are always special.
