Old Republic Trooper *Completed*

Post by C. Stone on Wed Dec 15, 2010 1:47 am

After 3 helmet designs, I finally completed him. My best custom yet, I was inspired to make this after I saw MinifigMaker's version (on Flickr). I spent 5 hours on and off making the decals, and everything you see is made by me except the the sun-visor. That was made by Arealight. C&C welcome!




I'm hoping this will become minifigure of the month.
More photos at my Flickr.

The top of the helmet looks a bit rough. I suggest that you sand it down a bit more with a fine sandpaper. Wink Smile

This looks excellent! Every decal is neatly applied. It could use some detail on the back of the helmet, though. Other than that, this is great! Wow this thing looks

JP is right, it could use some detail on the back of the helmet, but apart from that, it look awesome! I thought that you were going to use a pauldron as well on this, but it looks fine without it.

Thanks guys!

@ Troopa D: The reason it's not as smooth as it could be is because I forgot to remove the fin before I applied the decals, it was rather tricky removing it with the decals on.

@ Justin: Thanks! I couldn't think of anything to change back there that would be worth it, so I just left it plain.

@ 212th wicked: Crud! I completly forgot! Oh well, mmmm, maybe I'll update it....

Just asking, are those water-slide decals or sticker? Smile

Label paper = sticker. Razz
There's no 'better' non-shiny sticker.

Very nice. The top of the helmet might need to be sanded down with so light sandpaper but otherwise excellent work!
