Here’s a list of websites that I have been using for reference and guidance in my quest to build my stormtrooper armor. Hopefully they will help you too.

501st Legion: Vader’s Fist
Everything you need to know about the 501st itself, news, membership info, etc.

501st Podcast
This is a great resource for 501st happenings and tips and tricks for costuming and trooping from experienced troopers.

First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment A.K.A.
This is probably the best public community for standard stormtrooper costuming information. There is a literal wealth of information available through searching as well as lots of help and upgrade parts for your costume. With that being said, take it with a grain of salt as they like to edit out criticism of any kind of products offered.

Star Wars Helmets Archive – Real Stormtrooper Helmets And Armor
While The Star Wars Helmet Archive itself is a great reference in general with regards to everything Star Wars helmet related, the section devoted to screen used “real” stormtrooper helmets is invaluable. There is a wealth of quality photos of the actual helmets and examples of them from all three films with comparison photos.

– More to come!
