    Here’s the latest addition to my armoury. Machined aluminium parts plus 3D printed parts combined. Not 100% accurate but near enough for trooping/display The brackets for the mag strap should be here this week then I can get that fitted. I’ll post an update when it’s on.

    Holy shit, those details... and I like it a lot that you have chosen to include aluminium parts, they look sharp and just add that "real-metal-touch". The 3D-printed parts look great too and the weathering is spot on,well done. As a side note: you know that the RT-97c seen in the movie has no inner barrel?

    Hey Urs....thanks for the kind words! Yes, sure....I’ll add some of the progress pics from the build. I did the 3D prints and a friend of mine did the metal work...hence it being a collaboration. I’ll try keep the pics in some kind of order. Hope these are ok? The charging handle is also a working mechanism but is redundant as the hose for the IR scope is in the way.

    I've started putting together some footage from my build and definitely got sucked into adding more content to it. I'm planning on doing 3 videos: One for the parts, sources, tools, and materials, One for the assembly and attachment of everything, And one for the weathering. I've finished the first one and wanted to share it here! I hope that it can be helpful to all our future troopers looking for resources.

    Hi folks, after finishing some other side projects around my house it's time for another SW related project. Since you're no "real" sandtrooper if you don't have a bapty, I decided to build one. At the end of last year I earned some experience with smoothing out the printlines of 3D printed parts with liquid resin. So I want to gowith a 3D printed Bapty version made by 3d props NL. I've ordered a diy kit but due the pandemic everything took much longer. Last week was BBD and I was confused why the box so big because I expected it to be much smaller. And the reason was that it almost came completely assambled. I disassambled the blaster today to seperate all the parts because smoothing out is much easier. The whole blaster is a mixture of 3D printed parts aligned arround an aluminum pipe and some parts which were casted in resin. I'll definately want to exchange some parts like the scope rail and the trigger guard with metal parts but first there will be a lot of filling and sanding. There are some real good WIP in the forum and Originalprop is a good resource. I'll keep you guys updated! Cheers Arne

    Hello my name is Willi, after 5 years being TK, it's now time for me to transform my slowly yellowing TK into a beautiful TD. First i removed all the parts that make up a TK. shoulderstraps, kneeplate etc. When I finished that, I also started removing the characteristics of a TK from the helmet and started the oily sandy weathering at the same time. I use burnt umber, yellow ochre and black acrylics. Torso front and arms. OII Thigh left and right Lower legs and boots I know what you're thinking: where is the sniperplate? Since the photo's are a bit older, this is already mounted and will of course be submitted later. That's all for today folks. Criticism and suggestions for improvement are very welcome

    The Spanish sandtroopers, recently we have been able to enjoy the company of Anthony Forrest, and although the limitations of movement between localities, the confinements and the measures of social distance have not made it easy, we have met him on a couple of occasions. Anthony is a kind, grateful guy who does not want to be recognized nor does he want to have a professional life that does not allow him to enjoy his privacy and anonymity, but who signs up when he knows that the environment is healthy, enjoying with the fans of the Saga and their SandBrothers. He is a guy worth knowing who represents the strengths of the Dewback Patrol very well. During a meeting with Anthony Forrest we showed him the video we made celebrating his visit and thanking him for his attention and love. We leave you the video and his reaction. Intro text in English .... " Tatooine, Mos Eisley An old man and a boy mock Imperial authority, using an old mind trick from a group of warlocks known as the Jedi. During this time, our partner Anthony Forrest, has been forced to suffer in solitude and silence the taunts of the rebellious scum, until today. The Dewback Patrol of the Spanish Garrison wants to support our SandBrother, it could have happened to any of us ... #AllAreAnthony " See you soon Anthony, the Dewback Patrol eagerly awaits our future plans to come true and we will meet again in the meantime…. Move along, Move along

    Hardest part so far have been the thighs. I think i am on the right track, though... I have large thighs, i guess. needed to make room, used shims/cover strips to my advantage in the front. I will use a shim/polyflex at the bottom to bridge the gap of the left thigh. The right is a little more tricky. This one needs to be butt joined, but again, i needed to make space. I used shims to make the gap, and added a small extra shim at the top to give me a surface to apply polyflex, and eventually shape the top to match the CRL. Was chatting on the 850 FB group about this modification, but haven't received any feedback. Photo before the cover strip. I also added some shims at the bottom, will apply polyflex here to bridge the gap/fill as well.

    Hello my Dirty Trooper Brothers and Sisters, This is a momentous and exciting day for all of us. Overwhelmingly, I expect that at this point in time, you truly have no idea as to why it is such an exciting day. Allow me to explain. It is inevitable that we will face change in nearly all areas of our lives eventually. Our costuming hobby is no different. Whether it is new movies, TV shows, or video games which present us with new opportunities, or a bold new idea for an exciting piece of merchandise that excites us, change brings with it a variety of emotions and energy. It is in this spirit of change, excitement, and energy, that this day breaks with new direction for us all. Inspired by the examples presented in the world today, by Disney, LFL, and the 501st Legion as global entities committed to effecting positive change in our world, and in the spirit of unity, camaraderie, and togetherness that we announce a major change in operations for us as members of the Mos Eisley Police Detachment. As we all know – or maybe we don’t, but I will explain – the first scenes ever shot for anything Star Wars were some of those on the desert planet of Tatooine. It was there that the first world of Star Wars came to life for us. As a way to honor the history of the saga that shaped so many of our lives, it has been decided that, effective immediately, the 1st Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment, its CRLs, staff functions, websites, Facebook groups, members, etc are absorbed into the Mos Eisley Police Department. We look forward to serving proudly alongside our shiny comrades in armor and having the opportunity to order new (to us) racing shirts, coins, and patches! With unquestioned loyalty, dirt don’t hurt!

    SWAT's goal is to emulate a particular sandtrooper from a particular scene. All of the photos of the sandtrooper backpacks show the seed trays have a flat edge, and that is why they are sliding apart and barely held together with gaffer's tape: So, if you're going for SWAT, do not leave the lip around one of the trays. Trim the trays so they are flat. Charlie
