    Are you a serious player and part of (or planning on being part of) the UK Garrison or are you just making it for kicks?

    The only thing I'm a bit concerned about is the shoulder parts. Other than that it looks pretty good, what are you planning on tweaking exactly? Also is it just the pics or is the top of the lid a different colour from the rest of the suit? Are you planning on making any mods to it (air con etc)? If you need any help I'd say Stormtrooper_fan is about your best bet to know the ins and outs here, seriously for a girly type she knows about Stormtrooper armour inside out ;)

    Apart from Tie-Pilot there's no one with a Star Wars related costume here, S_f is working on a Zam Wessel costume though and there is a member who purchased a set of armour but has long since ceased posting here.

    Top class mate best of luck with the tweaks!

    Edited due to still being signed in with wrong user ID D'oh!!

    At last!We are getting back on track.Right,I am tweaking the moulds to try and get them to look a bit better,thats all.The top of the helmet is actually an old papier-mache casting,because the helmet mould was not ready to be formed,it is now though.

    http://uk.f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/the_prop_master/lst?&.dir=/&.src=ph&.view=t

    I have added some more pics of the moulds,to prove to some people that I have made this suit from the ground up,not re-cast someone else's suit.As for the shoulders,all I have done is tightened up the elastic straps.My girlfriend took the pics,and she thought the suit looked OK,but she's not into it like I am.Anyway,I hope you like the new pics.

    Paul.

    How much will this cost to make/for you to sell?! I would LOVE to get one of these without the super hefty price of the proper sites etc. Plus, if you keep prices low, you'll make bucks, since the mould is now made, is it cheap to make?! :D If ur selling, gis a bell :D

    I think the idea is to wear it, not to sell it.

    But there are good sites that sell top quality armour.

    I think I'd struggle to find places to wear that armour!! Its more of an ornament or fancy dress piece.

    Still wouldn't mind having one :D

    I understand your point MacDaddy!

    Just stick it on a dummy until the rare occasion you actually use.

    I really would like a full-size Darth Vader though :D
