  2. Good day to you @Hausi& @bigwam I hope you both are doing fine. Thank you for taking the time to review my application and would like to apologise for the long gap in my reply. My armour is actually in my new apartment and I didn't manage to find the time to take the pics. Here is the additional photos as requested. Helmet off 360 pics (with backpack Front Sides 360 photo (w/o backpack) Snaps & fasteners Backpack Do let me know if more photos is needed and changes required. Thanks guys!
  3. Last week
  4. Finally after all the official material referring to the Crystal Patrol (or Jedha Patrol) as “Stormtroopers” including this recent Black Series action figure. That’s one shiny clean TK! We finally have something official referring to the Crystal Patrol / Jedha Patrol as a “Sandtrooper!” This Topps trading card.I guess this supports the same concept discussed earlier in this thread; that Sandtroopers are just Stormtroopers too. I think I’m finally starting to come around, maybe this pack does belong with MEPD. Coincidentally the Sandtroopers on this trading card were also referred to as “Stormtroopers” as henselmonster pointed out.
  5. Hey, that's a great find, especially as it came with the correct red support straps, congrats! As you have already written, you will have to cut it to length and reposition the upper bar but that's quite easy to do. Have fun building!
  6. Hey guys! I just stumbled across this thread and thought it would be a cool idea to share my own Karrimor frame. So, I figure this is definitely not the correct size. It's too long, compared to the frames that were used on screen. Width-wise it seems to fit well enough, but to make this look accurate I would have to move the upper bar (the second one from the top) down a few centimeters and cut off everything above it. However, I believe these longer frames can be converted to achieve an accurate look. Mine got two of the red "braces", and the thing looks used already... Less weathering needed. Even though it doesn't look like it in the picture, the tape-measure is aligned with the bottom of the frame.
  7. Gratulation Thomas! Your Trooper looks absolutely fantastic. I'm currently working on the same roadblock private, and your build is definitely a great inspiration and helps a lot to get my bearings... I'll be lucky if I get it to look half as good as yours.

  9. Man I’d love to see pics of the jig you made too! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I did something similar on my pack and put a small thread together showing how I did the frame, might be helpful! http://forum.mepd.net/index.php?/topic/15849-pvc-karrimor-style-frame-build/&tab=comments#comment-204107 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thank you, I believe that particular model is a Deluxe Reverb, but many of the vintage Fender amps had these same parts such as the Vibrolux Reverb, and Twin Reverb.
  12. Brilliant bit of work in this agree this could be the likely source. I had brought some aircraft capacitors for my build (when I get back to it) but this feels more likely What model Fender is pictured above?
  13. Thanks for the answer mate ! Police officer is the level I'd wish to achieve when having my armor, SWAT looks a little bit complicated

  16. Hi Kevin, well, RS Propmaster's armor is one of the best out there and they always keep updating their stuff which I really appreciate. Seems like they also quite regularly check our MEPD forums here. If it suits you well, it should be good for level 2/ Police Officer here. However,that's never guaranteed, each applicant will have to apply for this level of screen accuracy after getting basic 501st approval with his local garrison.
  17. Hi Kevin, welcome in the MEPD! Have a lot of fun here!
  18. All the kids look happy, great job! And cool pics as well, thanks for sharing!
  19. Hi Kevin, welcome to the sandpit! Good to have you here with us and also congrats on choosing the most awesome costume out there, sandies rule. I hope you have lots of fun here on the forums and even more fun when your gear from RS finally arrives and you will be putting smiles on people's faces and giving high-fives to the kids. Cheers mate

  21. I was planning on ordering a pre-built armor, therefore my question on which certification the armor achieved. I edited the post because it was not clear, sorry about that
  22. Well... Is one of the best armors there are to buy, and depending how you put the pieces together it will have a closer or farther look to a screen used armor. Sent from my GM1900 using Tapatalk
  23. Hello everybody ! I was wondering if anyone knew which grade of certification the RS Prop Masters Sandtrooper (pre-built) achieved out of the box ? Thank you in advance !
  24. Hi folks ! I'm Kevin, 21 year old law student from Brussels, Belgium. After knowing the 501st since 2015 but couldn't join back then (because I was 15), I'm finally gathering up the money for my RS Prop Masters Sandtrooper ! I hope this is the start of a great adventure ! I want to join the 501st for the love of Star Wars but also to help others, putting a smile on someone's face is priceless and that's why I love the 501st. Another thing I like is the trading inside of the 501st (patches, coins, shirts, etc.) That's all ! Thanks for adding me on the forum
