Sorry for the delay on updating the AT-TE Tank Gunner figure progress. I've been sick with the flu since Saturday and just now recovering from it. What I've done was trim and sand the armor parts and got it prepped for painting hopefully tomorrow. It takes about 1.5 to 2.o hours to trim and sand each part depending on the type of clone trooper ie: commander, pilot etc.

I was inspired by my 7 yr. old son's 3/4" Hasbro AT-TE Tank Gunner figure from EP3 (ROTS), that I had to make a 12" version for myself from a kit bash of 12" figure accessories. So, expect a new AT-TE 12" clone figure from me sometime at the end of 2009.

I made these two figures about two years ago. The Bacara was given to a boy (big Star Wars fan) in Florida who had brain surgery. It was the first Bacara figure I attempted make. The Star Corps (Lt. Barr) figure is a mini-me version of myself in my full-size 327th Star Corps clone trooper armor.
It's been a while since I updated my blog so I thought I'd show you all another one of my creations. This is my version of a 12" AOTC clone pilot and it's one of my favorites. I made this particular figure about two years ago and was sold to someone overseas along with another 12" AOTC clone trooper figure. I made another AOTC clone pilot since then and it was given as the grand prize for a local cub scout's best star wars cake decoration contest.

I haven't posted in a long time due to being sick and taking care of the kids during spring break. I don't have an update on the republic commando sculpt but I am currently working on my buddy Skip's Commander Gree 12" figure. This must be one of the most challenging clones to make due it's unique paint scheme. I am trying to make it as accurate as possible but I think it's turning out pretty good. I painted the body armor a base green mixed together from hunter green and country tan. Then I will dry brush the camouflage pattern on the thighs, knees, arms, elbows, knee/hand plates, cod/butt plates, belt, and ab plate. I'll post an update after I do the camouflage paint job.

Nothing new on the RC helmet sculpt coz I didn't get a chance to work on it today. My son has been home sick from school with a chest cold. So, I thought I'd post my first attempt on the RC helmet sculpt with a resin AOTC clone helmet as base with the fin sanded off. As you can see it doesn't look anything close to an RC at all! Lol!
