    I just bought a clone trooper armor set doesn't come with a belt, gloves or boots. I will be needing help assembling the Armor and painting it with the 501st paint job since this is my first time doing it.

    I'll ping our local Clone Trooper and have him chime in, he may be able to help.

    Thanks Brandon. Welcome Captain_Jerid, a 501st Clone Trooper would be great. Mine is a 212th Attack Division. Who is the maker of your kit?

    I cna help you with some stuff for modding a close pair of shoes to work for the boots. Belt you could make, but I'd probably recommend getting one. I have an ABS kit from KW in stick atm if you might like to do that.

    As far as glove go, some good plain gloves that you can attach the hand plates work well. I'd be happy to show you what we've done.

    We're in Caldwell. You're welcome to come by we could take a look at what you have and share tips and ideas, do tell, thanks.

    The armor is made of fiberglass with a gel coat exterior and I bought it off eBay from a guy called buus783.

    Also thanks I really need to find boots and a belt for the kit. The gloves will be easy. Also would black sweatpants and a turtle neck work for the undersuit? Also still looking for a blaster online. How much is the kit from KW Design, want to compare it to the deal I got on ebay.

    Will next weekend work since I will receive the kit in the mail by January 13th-19th

    We might be able to do something next weekend. Will check.

    I would not use sweats and turtleneck though there are a few things that would work. Under Armour (or something similar) and a ribbed neckseal are what are needed for 501st/RL approval.
