I decided to go with the animated ARC that has been seen in season 3 of The Clone Wars. I have most of the parts needed to finish this costume. Need to pickup some soft parts here and there. Right now I have my shin pieces done up to primer. I am still deciding on the color scheme i want for the suit. Will post pics of the shins here soon.

This is the suit, but i think i want to go with Red instead of Blue OR i might stick with blue and make it look like Fives from the series.

Outstanding choice of clone!

I'd suggest getting the ab section done, first. Everything comes off of that. You'll then know if you need to trim or add material to the chest/back and cod/butt.

As far as I know, we don't see a red version of that ARC in TCW. That would make it a custom paint scheme, and as far as I know exclude it from being approvable.

On the RL side, we have approved nonstandard paint jobs ... or at least my Snow Clone Wolffe paintjob, but that was based off a comic & concept art. We're slightly more forgiving here.

But that paint job was not approved by Thomas... and I have since repainted it as a grunt. As soon as I redo the boots, it will go up for approval in both Legions.

My view on custom clones is that, like custom pilot paint jobs, as long as it fits within the established themes shown, it can be approved. Granted, no one else, AFAIK, has done anything custom yet... considering how many paintjobs we have seen, most everyone has found a Canon one to do.

I think it would be worth some discussion, but I think that a straight repaint of blue to red of that paint job would be acceptable. It would fit within shown schemes, and red has been used extensively, even on ARCs. If you put one of those next to Colt and the others, a red one would fit and look far better than two Colts side by side.

Colt is actually a red paintjob ARC -



I do not know for sure, but i think we accept slightly more custom schemes, not completely sure. I want to make something that is 501st approvable also, so I will have to check that side first.

There are two canon red ARC's to choose from.
You could do Colt (far left) or Hammer (far right ARC [not the mini Bly Wink ]):

Sorry to be so late on this. This is the first pic i took a couple of months ago when I first trimmed everything and finished most of my gluing and velcro. I still have a few hard parts on order and need to make the Kama.

I decided to go with Blitz cause his Kama just looks really cool and I like the way the Yellow pops on his armor. Bondo work is done now, everything is sanded pretty smooth and I have painted about 75% of the costume according to what I see in pics from imperialsurplus.com. I will be done with it completely by mid January, once it is all finished. I will post some more pics soon.

Well, after almost a year of sitting on this costume, I am finally nearing completion. I have worked on things here and there, did the cutting and glueing when i first got it, then did all the bondo and sanding piece at a time. I am now finishing the paint job.

I wanted to do Blitz at first, but Fives has become my favorite ARC. I saw the other day that Randy made one first. Though that did sadden me a little, I think with how many troops are out there and how rare I troop with him, I am going to still go with Fives.

I am almost done with the painting and here is the latest pic I took tonight. I just need to paint a few more things here and there and wetsand for weathering. Afer sanding, I can finish putting it all together!

Yay, done with Fives. Thanks to Randy Herman for really helping me out with some finishing touches!

Awesome job man. Looks great. I so want to do an armored piece. I keep going back and forth on what I want to do. A clone of some kind would be able to be used in both the RL and 501st, but I like the Stormtroopers. The ARCs also rock. I also saw that there are some BHs in the season 5 of TCW that seem to be using Lightsabers. That really caught my eye. I might have to wait and see if they are actually introducing Force Sensitive Mandalorians.
