Re: Anyone familiar with EVA Foam Armor?

Sorry, but foam armor is not allowed for membership. If you’re looking to do an RC, head to the forums at 501stclonetroopers.com to learn how. It’s not as hard as you think. It’s basically a giant model kit. My clone was my first build, too.

Re: Helmet Liner Ideas

For my clone, I used air conditioner weather stripping foam. Comes in 1 and 2 inch thick strips. Glued them in with E-6000.

Never heard of them and kind of leery, as it looks like they are using Cossky pics.

Re: Looking for a 3D Printer capable of printing Clone Trooper Armor

Honestly, you’re probably better off buying a vac-formed kit than buying a printer and trying to set it all up before you can even print anything.

Re: Getting my ANH officer together

Cossky is the bottom of the barrel and Wampa is the next step up.

I got my code cylinders from Philo. Belt buckle and rank bar from Tiggwolf. Belt blank was from EBay.

Re: Looking for assistance (TK build)

DeafTrooper, are the videos relatively universal (meaning regardless of kit origin) and is there a particular video/series that you recommend? The vendor has a few quick tip videos but nothing for full builds. Not sure. Never built a TK before. Have just seen people's posts linking the video throug...

Thought I heard they run a bit small and you'll want to order up 1 size. Not positive about that.
