    I am working on the blaster tomorrow, waiting on the backpack so I can weather everything evenly, and the helmet. I am almost there!

    There is an another thread on the SE research that I used as basis for my research and I also used the one on the whitearmor.net. Here is what I have found and I hope this further helps to complete the CRL and possible PO and SWAT reference builds. Starting from left to right: Trooper 1: wearing RotJ TK boots, missing ammo pouch from belt, no rivets on the belt for holster, standard RotJ suit, ANH pauldron, no foam padding inside shoulder bell, RotJ E-11, and standard backpack. Trooper 2: small separation of white U-trim around the thigh, no white U-trim on the bottom of the chest plate, RotJ boots, ANH pauldron, no foam underneath shoulder bells, standard RotJ suit, no rivets on belt for holster, RotJ E-11, and standard backpack. Trooper 3: RotJ armor suit, ANH TK boots, foam padding underneath shoulder bell, RotJ E-11, neoprene or rubber pauldron, not sure on the rivets on the belt, I believe the last two troopers are using a 1st version of the backpack (need to confirm with Crooknight). Trooper 4: weathered heavily compared to the other four, neoprene or rubber pauldron, RotJ armor suit, RotJ E-11, ANH TK boots, not sure on the rivets, and 1st version backpack (?) The trooper above is Ted Gagliano and he did not move in this scene and is the fifth SE sandtrooper. He is using a RotJ armor suit, has rivets on the belt from where the holster should have been, backpack, RoTJ E-11, and no TK boots (wearing shoes) as he did not want to move in the sand. See photo below. I plan to update as I find more information, but I believe this is all that there is on the SE sandtroopers. I hope to find more photos...

    Good morning all, I have previously built a level 3 ROTK (Jimmiroquai) and have been fairly active on FISD with the ROTK community. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/44463-11b30b4’s-rotk-build/ I have also built the Jedha Crystal Patrol pack. http://forum.mepd.net/index.php?/topic/15924-11b30b4’s-ro-crystal-patrol-pack-build/ Additionally, I have built a RO T-21. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/45451-11b30b4s-ro-t-21-build/?tab=comments#comment-627575 For this TD build, I have already modified the Black Series ROTK helmet. https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/48054-11b30b4’s-black-series-helmet-mod/ Currently, I am working on the Type 4 Sandtrooper pack and another RO armor kit, this one from 850AW. My intention is to get this kit approved for MEPD. I really like Yoshix’s build and have decided to make the pack from scratch. I will be 3D printing most of the parts and using PVC foam boards for the boxes. I have already started printing some of the parts and one of the parts did not printed well because I did not print it with enough detail. The part in question is the square greeble (yellow circle) in this picture. So, I think this part is actually a North Bridge South Bridge Aluminum Heat Sink like this: And I think the two greebles circled in red are also heat sinks. As for the remainder of the parts, I have not spent a lot of time tracking them down. Like I said, I will be 3D printing most of them and using the few reference pics to make them to scale as close as I can. I usually share all my 3D models on thingiverse for free; however, for this build I will most likely not share the files. I do not want to step on CrookKnight’s hard work and business. Besides, I am sure his models are better than mine since I am doing everything in tinkercad and not a “real” cad program. Anyway, more to come in the next few weeks and months. I am excited to finally get to this build going, so this is my initial post. Thanks for the interest.

    You've got a good eye for the details Chris. I've used rubber washers to get the bottle sit at the right angle on my pack. Two for the upper screw and one for the lower.

    I believe you are right John, I made a graphic to illustrate this by Photoshoping the left side of the upper bottle and mirroring it to the right as we cannot see the right side with it being blocked from view by the exhaust, I have made it slightly translucent and tinted it green for clarity. I then added the red lines to show the angle at which the bottle sits against the seed trays. To my eyes it looks like the bottom of the bottle is resting against the tray while the top is being pushed out by the mushroom cap, the angle of the brexton box (seen behind the bottle), as you said, supports this idea. If that makes sense! [emoji4] Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk

    a really crazy job, congratulations, if I can afford a suggestion, paint the snap fasteners black, and the rivets of the feet, and then ruin them

    Perfectly done! Looks like original and even has the functionality of a original radio! I did the exact same to highlight the raised letters on my radio, wax crayon, right?

    The ROTJ TK is complete. I am just awaiting the backpack and then I will weather the TK. I am so glad to have completed this phase of the costume! Onward to the infamous Special Edition Sandtrooper!

    I didn’t know Matt is still/again doing Stormtrooper stuff but I can’t tell anything nice about him. I assume there are more than a dozen people I know he still owes money or some items payed for but never received! Me included! I ordered a ANH helmet from him nearly ten years ago. First he was to refund my money, then he told me I would get my helmet somewhen later because he has had an accident, then he told me he would send me a ROTJ helmet (which I actually never wanted but accepted before I wouldn’t get anything) and after all this he ignored all my emails and PM for years! A few years ago he sold his moulds and told us he would never do any forming again ( I think he sold his moulds for the fourth time) From time to time he pops up and sells some helmets and even armor but I would never buy anything from him again... Maybe do some research on the FISD board before you consider buying, there is a lot of informations... Anyway, that’s just my personal experiences and thoughts about Matt (TE) but please decide yourself if you take the risk...

    Yep, completely agree with RoCKo, did the same for my latest SWAT pack, as I think the dome nut looks too bulky for the #3 pack. I am not sure about the other packs right now, would have to have a look at references again, quite possibly they used different fixing solutions.

    Thanks Jcalus! But all credit of course goes to Knopi for the great idea A bit more progress today, as I finished the mounting system for the brexton box using a piece of wood and 2 brass insert nuts: Like the Sonix, the brexton box is attached to the metal frame inside the seed tray. The top and bottom parts of the brexton box are held together with superglue. Made a similar system for the top bottle, again using a piece of wood and 2 brass insert nuts: As you can see, I also managed to apply a couple of coats of primer to the pieces that are gonne be painted in the RAL 7031 color. Also hit the black pieces with a few layers of matte clear coat: I guess I went a little heavy on the brexton box, but I'm gonna weather it anyway som I'm not gonna worry too much about it. While all of this was going on, the shoulder straps were in the washing machine with some black dye powder. The result is...not overwhelmingly positive, to say the least They used to be greenish-brown; now they're a slightly darker shade of greenish brown. I guess the straps are made of polyester, and hence very difficult to dye. Any tips? Otherwise, I'm gonna have to scavenge some black shoulder straps from another backpack somewhere, or make some new ones myself Plan for tomorrow is painting the grey parts in the correct color, and mounting the mushroom cap on the top bottle using the soda bottle method I saw in this thread: -Christian
