    I was wondering if anybody had a clue of how to make either Stormtrooper or clone armor. I have a lot of free time and wanted to put one together but have no clue where to start.

    We're thinking of doing the same thing up here in Rochester, NY. Not sure that I really have any good advice yet, as we haven't really started yet. Good luck to you!

    I know that if you don't want to buy the armor pieces you will have to build a vacuumform table to make the parts yourself. Pretty good websites about that is [link=http://www.studiocreations.com/howto/index.html]studiocreations[/link] and [link=http://www.tk560.com/stormtrooper.html]tk506.com[/link].

    You can also usually find armor pieces for sale on [link=http://www.ebay.com]Ebay[/link]

    You should probably talk to some folks in the [link=http://www.501st.com/default.html]501st[/link] too.

    Gotta love [link=http://www.google.com]Google[/link] :)

    Those links were great thanks Raptor. I think I might be able to do this, I have a garage and plenty of spare time. I might have to wait until next year though since my wife is due in September.

    Good luck finding the time after you have a new baby in the house. But, I guess I shouldn't laugh. My husband's managed to make a Chewbacca costume from scratch and our son's only 2. He's now starting on armor building.
