Intro from the Foam Trooper

Postby Foam Trooper » Tue Aug 17, 2010 5:30 pm

Hi all,
I’m Josh, living in Waldorf currently. I am a Marine Chemical Defense Officer, am married and have a 13 yo son. We all just got back from Celebration V and I am re-energized to get going on my OSCS clone kit that has been largely undone for nearly a year. The reason being that on average I am gone for at least a week a month and frequently for entire months. I look forward to learning from you all and welcome any advice or instruction folks can lend, primarily because even though I have read and read about it, I still don’t have a clue what I am doing.

I went to CV wearing a set of armor I had made out of craft foam and it held up quite well for the 4 days, but I want my plastic stuff . Sadly I don’t see my schedule easing up much so my participation in these boards and such will remain sporadic at best. Such is life. So with that I am glad to be a part of the group.

I am Foam trooper on Clonetroopers.net and jnebelsiek on the dented helmet.

Hey there, Josh, and welcome! We have a handful of members down there in Waldorf, so you're not too far from available help.

Certainly not an issue on time either. Everyone here has varying schedules from time to time. Come by when you can; take your time and get it together. It sounds like you're already set on Clonetroopers.net but let us know if you need anything.

Thanks all for the welcome. Ran into Virgil yesterday and talked a good bit. Since he's a stormy he recommended I seek out Sean who apparently just recently finished a Rex. That said, Sean if you're out there PM please.

So I'm still alive with no progress on my armor. After wanting one for nearly 10 years this has been taking up my time lately:
