Hey gang! Im working on a OR generic jedi right now (so is my wife) but the project that is taking up all my time right now is a kids set of clone trooper armor! Im loving this hobby, but its even more important for me to involve my kids -it also gives me licence to act (more) like a big kid myself. Its only about 80% done but I thought the folks here on RL might enjoy a look! heres a couple pics -if anyone else is doing one of these and wants more info -Ive got scads of pics posted over on clonetroopers.net (another AWESOME resource that I highly reccommend). Please enjoy a few pics!

Awesome job! Now I have to ask, did you vacuform the armor pieces yourself, or did you buy them from someone, I know as soon as my son sees it he will go nuts! (He's 7 and I'm currently working on building a custom Mandalorian for him...LOL)

What a cool dad you are! Smile


Dennis, most people don't have the equipment to vacuumform their own costume pieces, or the skill to sculpt accurate molds, so I'm sure he bought the armor.

Very cool. Smile

The scale does look good. The only thing that looks weird to me is the back of the ankles. I don't remember them sticking out like that on the adult Clones.
