I just started with 5mm for the bigger parts like the top of the helmet. But i could change easily. My Computer works again and I think I know how to scale, but im not sure if I will do it right . Im 170 cm tall. Thanks
This is a bit late, but that is indeed the templates that I based mine off of. I had to fix a lot of the parts like the arms because they weren't accurate to the tv show. I hope your issue got resolved and good luck with your build. :)

1-5 for the pauldron is for this part, and I wet with 6mm, but anything from 5-7mm can be used

Hopefully I’m not taking over this thread but I wanted to show off my clone build so far. At the moment money is a bit tight so instead of using foam I chose cardboard to use with the templates. I used rjrproductions clone helmet template, ryzers armor template, and andrewdfts dc-15 template. I’ve been using gorilla hot glue which holds really well and doesn’t leave a lot of room for mistakes. I also used spackle to seal gaps although I’d prefer something that doesn’t have vocs.
I first started with the helmet and although I had a template there was a lot of improvising to make the helmet wearable for me and at times I had to rip it apart and glue it together differently.I don’t remember the order I went about putting it together but that’s why I took pictures throughout.

I had to add a extra couple of inches to the headband area to widen the helmet since it was too tight.

in this picture was trying to find the perfect height for the dome. I ended up cutting it off and making a shorter piece and got what I was looking for. I also had trouble figuring out a way to connect the side and back tubes without too much effort.

only managed to fix the tubes on this side the other is a bit flat.

here’s the back it might look a bit off cause like I said earlier I had to resize the helmet to fit me.

painted but had to clean it off because of runs and smears.

here’s the final product, only thing I would change would be the mouth since it’s a bit too small but I don’t have xacto knives. Spackle is cracking too but it’s not too bad so I left it like this.

Here’s the dc-15 I made out of cardboard it’s mostly the thin flat pieces but I found some thick 1 in wide cardboard that I was able to use to reinforce the mains body and the entire grip/handle. For the details I just layered the same pieces until they were the depth. Template is from andrewdft.

I’ve also been working on ryzers armor template and as of now have the arms, chest, and thighs at the very least built. Some things still need to be spackled/sanded/painted.

Here’s the arms as of now, I also have the hand plates cut out but it’s simple so I didn’t post it. I’m also planning on trimming the biceps a bit for more articulation

Here’s the chest. It’s wearable I have Velcro on one side to open up and the other side is superglued so it’s shut. The shoulder straps are reinforced underneath to keep the front and back together while I put it on. With cardboard I cannot bevel at all but gorilla glue allowed me to pull off different angles while still holding together.

The thighs are the most recent pieces I finished. I couldn’t really bend my legs so I cut off mm by mm at the back piece until I could walk reasonably. Other than that they’re pretty snug and just need to be held up a bit with elastic straps attached to a belt.

That’s all I have for now but I’m currently working on both shins and I’ll update when those are done or when I finish other pieces.

on the helmate build you put moddeling putty around certain parts of the helmate in that a necessary step in the build.

If you want a smooth surface, it in many cases is, although I´d recommend something different due to the flexible cardboard. A regular modeling putty usually is to stiff and will crack when the helmet is e.g. squished during trooping. You can harden any cardboard parts with resin or reinforce it with a coating of resin and fibreglass mat. There are tons of tutorials available on Youtube that guide you through the process of covering and or hardening various types of armour materials.

To achieve a smoother surface you could also cover those straight and flat areas with another cardboard or go the paper maché route. Tons of options.

Love this build, I like working with card board due to its availability and price.

Anyone having sizing problems: yes,the helmet's design doesn't allow you to have the "perfect fit" and be able to fit your head through the bottom just like that. It took me 2 helmets to realize that. Although if you make a larger bucket then you might solve the spacing problem with some leftover foam or cardboard. However some builders state that you could carve out some pieces from the bottom without destroying the overall form of it. It's hard to make it with phase 2 clone helmets...but yeah. Oh, if you're patient enough you could separate the front and the back panels of the helmet and stick them together with some magnets. I hope I could help something.
Cheers!

So my first helmate cracked on the back when I dropped it so on round 2 i was thinking about pouring the liquid plastic over the outside so i can get a full covering and not have any obvious runs. would it work if i put it on the outside?
