    SOLO - Mimban Trooper CRL Development

    No "clean" Mimban Stormtroopers were seen on screen (or any other "canon" media). So in my opinion that shouldn't be an option. By way of precedent Anovos also make a clean tank trooper helmet, however the crl specifies "heavily weathered" as a requirement.

    SOLO - Mimban Trooper CRL Development

    @dutchy, I'm surprised no one's posted yet. Terminology: The "blast shield" on the helmet is "enhanced targeting systems" per the Visual Guide, for better cutting through all the rain and fog on Mimban (and, presumably, similar environments). Here are some pics from ANOVOS' booth and presentation at SDCC a few weeks ago: Given their access to the originals, I expect their details are reasonably accurate (though I think the center opening on the side mounts are too small on this compared to what I see in the film). Also, they'll be offering both clean and weathered versions... ...So make of that what you will about weathering/mud being a requirement for anything but the Mimban-deployed 'Troopers specifically...

    Thank you very much .....
  7. Henselmonster, I am happy to help in any way that I can. I am open to assisting with the CRLs and the CRL model. I should note that I asked for a few of the ROTK CRLs to be adjusted since they were mostly copies from previous CRLs. The updated TK CRLs should be correct and MEPD may want to mirror them in terms of the armor. Things like allowing a simulated S seal on the helmet or removing the requirement completely since the only approved RO kit available currently Jims kit and his helmets simulate a seal around the head opening. There are other things like the overlap vs butt-joint construction etc… As for the CRLs for the Crystal Patrol Pack, I attempted to stay as true to Mr. Paul’s build and the other guys who worked so hard to identify the proper parts as I could. The only areas I strayed were where the actual item and what I used looked almost exactly the same. That being said, I do not know what you guys are needing in the CRL model exactly. I am not sure I would qualify since I do not plan on weathering my TK. However, I am working on getting another ROTK kit from NaturalBornDT on FISD and that kit will be Vacuum Formed. I am planning on weathering the VC kit and using it for approval for MEPD once I get it but I do not expect to have that kit complete until after December. Regardless, feel free to contact me directly if I can help in any way and thank you for the compliment.

    What is in your helmet?

    Hi all, I am curious to see how you all have your helmets set up. What kind of fans, audio, mics, padding, etc. do you use or recommend? Any specific set-ups or products to avoid? Additional advice? Pics are welcome!

    Yea, some of our pages are still being transitioned over. Hopefully this will all get fixed soon!

    Thank you! On some of those it says to go to the "MEPD SWAT" page for more details. However, when I go there, most of those links under "Captain, Sergeant, etc." are broken too. http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TD_sandtrooper_mepd_SWAT

    No problem. Is it linking to the TD CRLs on the 501st website, or something else?

    Thanks for the heads up, we will look into. Must be related to the move to the new server.

    I did not mean that I demanded anything, I just wanted to let you know the SWAT requirements for your SWAT level field packs If you find a karimor please let me know and we can work something out, there´s no hurry as I will turn my attention to the FOTK build for the time beeing. Thanks for awesome customer service

    On the MEPD Police Officer Program section, there's a link in the deployment guide at the top of the page for the MEPD requirements on the CRL. I get a "Not Found" when I try to click it. Link in question: http://www.mepd.net/crl/#MEPDRequirements Thanks!

    TheSwede`s "look Sir! droids" SWAT build [RS]

    @TheSwede I will see what I can come up with for the frame. It is custom aluminum and the only way to connect the pieces is with the elbows. I have used CPVC in the past, the only issue is it tends to break over time. I will search for more Karrimor frames, but I have had little to no luck finding them in the last 6 months. If you know of anyone that sells them or a good place to get them, please let me know. I usually try to use Ebay.Uk. I will gladly send you a CPVC or Karrimor frame (If I can find one) at no charge to use for your SWAT application.
  21. The best is, use an original karrimor frame and put your parts on it. So you can modify all for your "look sir droids" pack.

    ahh I see, the only thing I did to the frame was to shorten it so the ends are how the pack came to me. Totally understand so thanks for clearing that up
  23. If you will use it for SWAT? No. I´m not happy with the frame. Absolutely not with this corner pieces: I miss this endcapes (pic), and: it is no karrimor. Before you invest a lot of time and money, look for better parts. Karrimor are not expensive and you get them easily. Above all: they are original. I hope you understand me. I just want you to not do any unnecessary work.

    11B30B4’s RO Crystal Patrol Pack Build

    Glad you posted this over here! You are looking great. A lot of hard work went into this and it shows. Agreed not to beat the dead horse, totally understand why you wouldn't want to dirty up your kit. That is 100% up to you. The rule isn't necessarily only "dirty" stormtroopers come to MEPD, its slightly more complicated but I guess thats an easier generalization. The history of the MEPD is its own thing we won't get into, but where the MEPD is now is a much different place than it was just a few years ago. We are super grateful for the heavy lifting over at FISD for this pack, many of us participated (there or on Facebook). I have held the stance that this pack, while belonging to the MEPD in the form of the Crystal Patrol Trooper, should also be an optional accessory for the R1 troops as a compromise. Now that is not for me to decide and it is only my own personal opinion. The other thing about this pack and the MEPD is we still need a CRL model. We already have one for the Jedha trooper and the new Mimban trooper from Solo, but this one is still eluding us. Should you eventually want to help create this CRL with us we welcome you and have a locker in the MEPD break room with your name on it! FISD and MEPD have worked in tandem for many years, we have a great relationship with the command staff. The new direction for the MEPD was decided by both detachments not too long ago. We are still adjusting to the new expansion of this detachment. While it is our origin, we are no longer just the Sandtrooper detachment. Thank you again for posting this and your progress, it will be incredibly helpful for those pursuing this pack. You did an excellent job!
