Paratrooper by The Clone Factory

Post by clonefactory on Sun Jul 06, 2008 7:14 pm

I have yet to update my site with the info so this is the first look. Sorry about some of the color distortions in the picture. Obviously have to give credit to MMCB for the Kama. This will be the first of many new creations this month. Enjoy.

Awesome! The gray part on the helmet sticks out a bit. Can we see him helmetless?

That's a pretty figure CF, I like him alot. Although the on thing I'd criticize is that the mouthpiece seems a bit out of proportion to me. Wink

Not bad, not bad. Wink I take it that is your custom airborne helmet. What did you use for a base ==> Ep 2 helmet?

I do agree with Fordo though, the "breather" crest is too high making the lens too high

Sides and rear look great though!

great job clonefactory! Like Fordo said, the mouthpiece is a bit too large but other than that, I think that it's brilliant.

I have the hasbro fig here and what I can tell it's a very good helmet. Yet the froný grey part should be narrowed by about 1/3 and aswell a bit lower. Further, the orange stripes on the helmetshould be pointing a bit more outwards. But that are just minor details, great JOB! Smile

So if i was to sand down the front and redo the breather should the breather be square looking as it is now or more rounded. Any thoughts.

BTW. Thanks for the feedback.

Clone Paratrooper

Post by Arkane on Fri Jul 11, 2008 11:26 pm

I like the model and the detail on the helmet, but I have always wondered when I have been lurking, what do you make your helmets out of? Bob's looks like plastic of some sort, but yours look almost like foam or some soft material.

Your comments hurt me to my deepest core. I use resin as well. I havn't heard this comment from anyone else.

Well, since you asked. I spent the first half of the week dissapointed that the hockey pads didn't work as well as I wanted on the Clone Commando. Although some people liked the look, I had higher expectations.

I spent an afternoon redoing the Paratrooper but didn't get very far.

Otherwise I am itching to do some pictures of my covert figures and Heavy Troopers for my site. Next I will redo the Paratrooper and get ready to unroll my new intention to sell detailed helmets seperately.

Thanks for asking.

Sounds cool! I like they look of your helmets and pieces, I think they look great! I am also VERY excited about you selling helmets, they're going to be detailed correct? Smile Blue Arc

P.S. As soon as you get the Paratrooper helmet perfected, I'm deffinetly going to get one! With a combination of your, Wuzzup's, Arealight's, and Kam's work, I'm hoping to have a large assortment of custom Troopers I'm debuting later this summer! Smile Blue Arc

The helmet is made of the plastic legos are made of . Roll Eyes Clonefactory check your pm.

Actually no they are'nt, they're made of cast resin, LEGOs are made of ABS plastic. And please remember to use correct spelling and punctuation please.-MOD

Clone Factory makes high quality custom pieces, and does a dang well job of it too. He uses this kind of plastic because of both the availibilty and the logicality for what he is doing. I'd like to see you make anything close to the quality of what Clone Factory does, legoboyrob2.

First off, it was Jamesh who orginal brought up that they look soft. They sorta do in some pictures, but I'm sure that that's just wierd... something, I don't know, lighter or what not. I'm personally a huge fan of CF's work, but I agreed, they look like a softer plastic.
