Helmet is near done (don't know if I need to weather the blue "heat vent" stripes or leave them be.



Meanwhile, trying to line up the rest of the armor with masking tape and get the cut lines on the upper legs. I need to move the torso armor pieces down and the legs up.

Welcome to the ranks of the Grand Army of the Republic!
Your paint/weathering skills are spot-on. Yeah, there's a lot of adjustments needed for clone armor, I was making fairly major adjustments for the first year I trooped with mine, after all, the original armor wasn't ever outside a computer. Looking forward to seeing your progress!

Thanks for all the positive support! The gang over at Clonetroopers had me make some more adjustments and things lined up well enough to start on the abdomen piece, so worked on that tonight (sorry no photo, but not exactly an interesting piece at this point). Got it cut and velcro'd and it fit splendidly. Drilled the 8 holes in the front. Looks like the weather will be better this weekend, so should be ready for the first coat of paint I hope...

I am also considering having my sister in law make me a Jedi costume...I hung out with some great members of both legions at a "Star Wars Reads" event, and they mentioned that its a good idea to have a "soft" costume as an alternative to lugging armor around. My sister in law is a tailor, so I may charge her with making me some Jedi robes while I continue to hack at white plastic! Smile

Argh! Messed up the detail on the "two vents" on the chest armor...

Any ideas on how best to fix it? I could try to minimize the error via weathering or try to sludge or bondo over the holes and try again...
