So I have a few questions.

I have a set of incomplete Clone armor, and I'm debating on even starting it or selling it. It's just the armor itself, so no boots, belt, or bucket.

I'm of small stature (5'9, 130lb) and was curious if anyone here has experience trouping in armor. I know people love it, and I love the people, but I'm worried I can't pull it off. After all, I'm already a little short for a stormtrooper...

Second question would be if anyone could help with assembly. I don't really have to tools or space to do so, and honestly have no experience working with a project like this.

the biggest question I have is what kind of clone armor is the kit?
I assume since it doesn't have a belt you have realistic armor.

But I have a phase 1 animated clone and I love it, it takes some getting used to walking and moving in it. Sitting down isn't really an option though.

and yeah I can help, might need some tools and also its probably going to be a process. Clone armor unfortunately isn't something we can crank out in a day.

You're right, it a live-action style suit. I'm unsure if it's a phase 1 or 2 though. Personalty, I'd like for it to be an ARC Trooper in phase 1 (I love the "T" Visor look). I'm just short on time and resources at the moment.

ARCs require alot of extra stuff, kamas/pauldrons/holsters/etc.
If you were going to buy all stuff and not make it yourself... I would estimate at it adding 400-500 dollars on top of the usual cost.
But I will be the first to admit they look cool.

Heck, If everyone and their brother didn't have a Captain Rex I would have turned my clone into one.
