Flat Green Lenses for a Sandtrooper Bucket

The armor and helmet protects a Sandtrooper not only from blaster shots but also from the element. Being it sand, cosmic powder, wind, rain, cold of heat, having the armor up to specs is a must for a deployed TD.

A very important part of the armor are the lenses. It protects the eyes of a TD from cosmic rays, sand and wind too... while providing with scanning and zooming tools, increasing the capabilities of an Imperial Trooper.

Here are the mods made to my helmet to finally have the best possible pair of flat green lenses available out there. But since tatooine is not the best place to shop for armor parts, this is what i had to do.


A transparent green/clear plastic lunch box was the source of the material.

And a little Extra: four to three buttons in the ab plate. I used an epoxy paste to seal the hole left on the plate after removing the button and then weathered it.
