Thanks! No the figure is more for inspiration.

Yes, I found the paint here http://www.lassesiryd.se/produkter/farg ... -sprayfarg.
It's not their new 2x paint but the color is the same. And you're right Rust Oleum products are really hard to find.
I asked the helmet maker to send me some cans but according to him it's not allowed to ship aerosol products.

I think that I'll be keeping my build thread over at BF http://www.blizzardforce.com/forum/view ... =98&t=4573
But cross post here when reaching the milestones.

BTW if someone is having a build party in southern Sweden I would be interested.

I have a question:

I currently own a Clone trooper Two piece under suit from stormtrooperundersuit.com which is ribbed.
But the CRL says it should be an non-textured material.
Does this mean that my ribbed under suit won't be approved?

But the GM has a grey undersuit (overall), so why do you need a clone trooper undersuit?

It's more like a grey "hängslebyxa" and a black top. So I wont be needing the clone trousers.

Ah, same as me then :)
I also received my overall today. I was very excited to start working on it since I need it when fitting the rest of the armour.
But I got really depressed when it seems too dark in real life compared to the pictures on the sellers website.
It also has a double seam line on the legs. What do you think of it? I've also asked the guys on BF to comment on it.

Hm. No idea. If it's something sewn on the outside or inside maybe you can just remove the stitches.

I think I got a little carried away yesterday.
You are quite right. The stitches should not be any problem to remove actually. It's a pouch for knee padding on the inside. That gave me a good idea by the way in case the knee armour is not padded by the armour maker in advance.

Now I just need some more feedback if the colour is acceptable or not.
