Custom ARC Trooper

Post by train 01 on Sat Apr 30, 2011 3:35 am

So this has been in the works for about three weeks. The pauldron is made of strong craft paper and the kama is made from Lego's
Asajj Ventress skirt with the front cut off. The helmet is the older Ep. III version with an added fin and the sides sanded down. The paint has some rough edges because the tape I used wasn't real great. The rangefinder can move as well. The rifle is of my own custom design.

Enjoy... Smile

Yes, I made it out of thick craft paper that my mom uses for scrapbooking or something.

I found the basic template on google and edited it some, so I'm not real sure who designed it.

Thanks for the comment. Smile

Nice ARC trooper you got there, I really like the design of the pauldron and the usage of the ventress skirt. Much better than any of my attempts. How did you make the rifle?

The rifle is a standard Lego Star Wars with the scope shaved off. Then I put a Lego clone floodlight on the black technic connecter piece using the little thing that connects it to the helmet. If you or anyone else uses the design, just give me credit. Wink

The rifle looks really good. Thumbs up But maybe cut the kama a bit it looks a bit low. And the paint on the helmet could be slightly neater... Wink

Great job, the only thing that sort of bugs me is the kama. It just doesn't seem right. Otherwise, awesome job! Wow this thing looks

I did shorten the kama a bit after I took the pictures because I thought it looked odd too.

@-TD: As I said in the original post, the tape I used wasn't very good and the edges had paint bleed. Embarassed

Thanks for the comments. Smile

Yes, you would be wrong. I basically used this template and just moved the box to the other side.



Hope this explains it and thanks for the comments. Smile

Did you laminate the paper pauldron? It would make it much stronger. Wink

No, I didn't laminate it because I don't own a laminator. The pauldron is made out of thick paper and holds up pretty well unless it gets wet or I crush it. Neither of which have happend.
