Wow, this is looking better and better (and is a great addition to this section).  We don't make enough vehicles around here... it's good to see something doing that.  You've put in a ton of work into this, and aren't taking any shortcuts that I can see.  I can't wait to see the final pics!

 :P

Thanks alot !
  Its prob gonna be a week or more before I get the lights and get it wired up . Plus I need to get a imperial logo for the nose of the ship. the door and ramp and window all need to be added still. But other then that I have been having some fun with this one . It may take longer then that even because I have a baby girl that should be born any day now plus about 50 other big things going on in my house. But soon as the wirse get here I will wire it. while i had it apart I found some easy ways to get it wired and keep the wires hid pretty well. Cant wait tell its done .

Thanks again for looking :D

They're bootlegs, yea.


Are you serious ?
  They look awesome ... how do they look when people buy em off ebay ? Are then in boxes or sold in groups ?   Do the arms and legs and heads move around ?

crap I would buy 10 of those easy just to make customs.

I got mine off of eBay and from www.alliancecollectibles.com .  I like them a lot, but they only have 3 points of articulation (shoulders, head).  They're good to fill out a diorama, but they are a little bigger than the hasbro clone troopers.  Still, the marching ones make for some great displays.
They come as 10-packs in individual sealed plastic bags (all are sealed in a larger plastic bag).
On eBay, try searching "Bootleg Clone" or "Custom Clone", you should be able to pick them up for $2 - $3 each.
www.alliancecollectibles.com used to have them for $20 a set, but a few months ago they raised their price to $40 a set I think.  Still, that's only $4 a clone, but considering their lower-quality, it might not be worth it.  I would definitely recommend checking eBay first. 
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

That is looking nice!  I like all of the updated shots, it's cool to see this piece come together.  I can't wait to see the lights!  I can't really think of anything that I'd change, so keep up the good work CuDa! ;D

Thank you !

   I just thought of somthing I might try to do on it . If you look on the wings you will see a blue and red dot  on the tip of each wing. Well I was thinking since the bottom of the wing always faces down i could shrink rap wires and run them along the bottom of the wing with 2 led lights that blink slowly and when they blink its not just on and off its a fade in and fade out . and run the lights on the cockpit and cargo hold on a different system then the lights on the wings to make the battery last longer.
A blue and red light on each wing were the same color dots are already.

Im also trying to make a cool custom pilot of some sort but Im not having any luck with that one ... I was thinking of repainting  Grievous' Guard and takin of his cape and adding differnt guns. Almost giving him a terminator feel. but not sure about that one yet.

Well Im glad you guys like this one  ;D thanks again !

I'm glad you made it over here Glassman.  Your work is outstanding, and you will be a great addition to the customizing community here.  Check out the photonovel section here too - http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/index.php?board=47.0

I remember seeing that Obi Wan you made.  It's perfect!  It really looks like official Hasbro product.

 :P

Wow!  The Slave C looks incredible.  Great job on the paint.  What's the story on the canopy, why is it opaque?

I'm really looking forward to seeing the lights on this thing!

Cool pilot.  Is he a clone or did he take a clone trooper's armor?
I think it would be cool if you gave him some accessories (like Fett).  Maybe a cape and some extra weapons... ;)

I just changed my mind on this guy . Im makin some changes that should make him look 100% better. Pics should be added today in the next few hours or so.He is getting a cape from a clone commmander and helmet and weapons plus he will have the old clones commanders suit bound and tied up in the back of the slave C . So it will be makde to look like and empty suit. Im gonna dremel out a clone commander OMG NOOO !!! lol

I think im going to make him a bounty hunter killer.
Someone who Kills the bounty hunters and takes What he wants kinda dude.
 Aruala (a-roo-ala) is his name . Named after my Daughter but backwards lol, her names Alaura.  ;D
