Welcome Mauri. I'm not sure what you mean by starting this project with illusion. Are you building a Shadow Scout?

I'm reacquainting myself with all the new information for projects myself. I kow there are other builds happening at this moment as well, so be sure to check those threads out to see if they have the resources you're looking for. :)

For a shadow SCOUT?

Looks perfect for a Shadow Trooper, but the Scout uses a boot. The tutorial here is what seems to be the most recommended one:



I need to get the base-boot, then try it out. As I haven't even gotten the armour yet, I'm in no rush.

As it WILL get quite hot here in a month or 2, I'm waiting till then to wrestle the vinyl to fit.

I´ve read all topic here about shadows... Very interesting...


A thing that is not clear for me is the material of the boots...The CRL says vinyl but is that leather like material? Is it the same? I show you a photo... Do you mean that??

That material looks fine to me, and those boots should serve as a decent base.

And the laces?


My boots have laces inside. You can do either way, but I like to be able to tighten my boots a bit.

As for the vinil, in the CRL says "Slightly textured vinyl is acceptable". Do you think mine can serve?

Hi again friends!!!


Today I´ve received my armor and helmet!!!


I have some quiestions about the CRL... As for the helmet, what,s the fish-hook logo and the manufacturer one?


As you can see in the photo, the part that can be elevated (helmet flare?????) has a kind of curve... Do I have to correct it? How???


Thanks a lot!!!

Another question...


Any idea about how to hold the thermal detonator to the belt? Clips? Where to buy?


Thanks again!
