Whenever any sort of new stormtrooper armor is introduced, a Star Wars fan and costumer will build it. It’s like a cosplay Field of Dreams. Redditor Stone-Bear turned their eyes towards making a Rogue One Tank Commander kit. Well, they got the basic kit from 850 Armor Works and the 3D model from Sean Fields. Then they applied their skills towards making it fit right and look like it’s been worn on a few missions. They explain:
The armor is vacuumformed ABS plastic, its quite thick and durable. Its a kit from 850 armor works (check on FB). I trimmed, assembled, painted and fit the armor.
The helmet is 3D printed, model by Sean Fields. Printed, finished and painted by me.
