Yes, the Clone Trooper is a very hard kit to make. I had to resort to buying some pieces from another maker. At first I was going to make my armor seamless but after looking at doing that it would make the armor very hard to get in and out of. So the armor will go together just like Stormtrooper armor. So yes, there will be seems. But hey, I can't really be too picky since there was no real armor to go off of, just digital.
The PVC Pipe mannequin that I am building is in a running pose. I am thinking of having my Clone hold the Battle Droid Blaster with both hands. It gives him a dynamic pose. Later on I will replace the Battle Droid Blaster with the smaller Clone Blaster (like the one that comes with the Clone Pilot).
Of course I have to wear the armor and take some pictures in it before it goes on the mannequin. I have a rule, once on the mannequin it does not come off.
I will be sure to post pictures of my Clonetrooper on the forums. It may not be perfect but so far I am very happy with it. Lots of work has gone into this creation. I have to say that it is 100% better than some of the Clones that I have seen out there.
I plan to have TC-3778 finished within the next week if all goes well. If not the following. I am making some modifications to the armor, then I will shine it up, and take some pictures.
