Custom Republic Marine Star Wars clone trooper
Where to start with this build? Bandai 1/12 Star Wars Clone Trooper. Started off trying to do something unique with the paint scheme did some research and my goodness there are tons of different variations people have come up with! It’s almost it’s own sub culture in the Star Wars universe these clone troopers and their different units and unique markings. So as I dug deeper I wanted to know if this clone armed forces had a Marine Corps, they sure did but in my opinion was lacking in imagination! The “Interglactic Marines” were no more than the Snow Troopers from The Empire Strikes Back but with purple helmets and purple sleeves! I’m sorry if purple is a close and dear color of yours and I know purple was a revered color in the Roman Empire but I will be damned if in my project a Republic Marine clone trooper has purple as a main color! This is an older project done last summer and boy did I learn a lot about 2 part epoxy resin! I’ve rambled enough let me know what you great modelers think!
