We have a couple members interested in doing a Rebel Fleet Trooper, so I thought we could combine forces and do a group build. We can all get our stuff from the same place for a consistent look, and get together to assemble the helmets.

Future Devaron Base members welcome!

The RFT is iconic, but pretty simple. Many of us already have the boots from either a TIE or X-Wing pilot. The pants are off the rack khakis. We've got someone looking into whether he can sew the shirts and vests. The helmet is (relatively) cheap, with kits at $135 or assembled at $199. Still looking into belt sources.

If you're interested in participating in a group build, post in this thread.

1) TanRu (Mike)
2) kmart (Kevin, NER)
3) Dclampffer (Dave)
4) Bro
5) Shoreturtle (Charlie)
6) JoeBee (Joe, NER)
7) Ruthar (Taylor, NER) HAS HELMET
8) Don (NER)
9) Terceleto (Elizabeth)
10) Nitrospartacus (Chris, NER)
11) TKJimbo (Jimbo) HAS HELMET
12) ICJackie (Jackie)

Next group:
1) Cyclops (Edward, NER [?])

I need another costume like I need a hole in the head - however this won't take up much room and like the TK the RFT is the most iconic costume (in my head) because their battle with the Stormtroopers is the first thing we see.

So duh, I'm in Smile

Great response so far! We've got 8 people already.

In the interest of keeping the momentum, I'm going to say that we'll get going on ordering the helmets when we have 10 people or this Friday, which ever comes first.

Anybody who doesn't get in on this first round, don't worry! We'll document everything so we have a good reference and a consistent look for any future builders.

This sounds super cool. Idk that I can get in this run, I won't know til Friday if my raise for work went through or not (it didn't for last paycheck when it was supposed to.)
if it's just leather blanks we need for belts I can do that as long as buckles can be found. Dying/finishing them is pretty simple work and could be done at a armor/helmet party so others can learn the skills. It's pretty basic leatherwork stuff for belts and is useful for all manner of straps!

Yes, it's just leather blanks and a $7 Tandy belt buckle. That would be great! I was wondering how the buckle and belt attach haha.

Wow, 10 people already!

I'm waiting for quotes from two different helmet vendors. Once those come in we can pick one and discuss how we're going to handle ordering.

I'm also making lists of suppliers for the rest of the parts, but I will start a new thread when the project kicks off for real.

If anybody wants to help out with the legwork on this (especially if there's someone interesting in heading up our Squad at the end of this project), jump in!

EDIT: Only 9 people on the list need helmets, room for one more!

OK, we've hit our 10 people and I need a solid count to get the quotes on the helmets.

The highest price on the helmet kit is $137 - hopefully we get a decent discount.

Anybody on the list who cannot commit, please shoot me a PM.

I can start looking at blanks... For this many people I don't have enough leather on hand and it'll probably be easier to order in the precut strips. Which buckle will we need from Tandy?
I have dye already but usually a little bottle at $7 goes a long way so depending on which of the two colors we go with I can order that dye in (and prob out of my pocket since any leftover I'll hold on to for other projects)

It's just the rectangular 2" blank buckle from Tandy.

Just a note on the belt and holster. Darman's Props makes a set, but they run $105.00 each. However it is Darman, so the quality should be awesome. Just wanted to throw that out there.
