    Hi Chris, welcome to the sandpit! The UKG has some of the greatest sandies around, try getting into contact with Britpatrol, those guys also inspired me to build my sandie. Have fun building your armor, looking forward to seeing your progress.

    Right, I've added the watermarks, and the .STL files are for all MEPD users to enjoy. My only request is if you do print them for your builds, you mention its the DKK version :-) https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/18XEirIOF7_ko5r1ddABS2FAke36J-P0z?usp=sharing All the parts for the radio, plus a bottle and bottle neck that allows for a captive nut, so it can be screwed in, and finally, a Radar Dish mount for the 15cm/5inch Dish (the 800 Lid, not the 874) Any questions, feel free to ask. Cheers, DKK Hollywood

    Thank you Roger and Vincent for the kind words! Roger, I know, I´m such a nerd, I can´t believe it myself... and I´m proud of it. As you were asking for my source of the pleather, got it from ebay, am quite happy with it as it´s only subtly structured. https://www.ebay.de/itm/Automobil-Kunstleder-Meterware-Sitzbezug-Polsterstoff-in-schwarz-150-cm-Breite/372665484347?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=641449882023&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2648 I put on the remaining stickers, assembled it and before weathering, I used Microsoft word to replicate the "220V" sticker and the "WARNING" sticker. original: mine: I just messed around with it until it looked about right, printed them and put a layer of self-adhesive film on top, so it would survive the following weathering. I tried to get the "MIC" and "EAR" stamps on the pleather surround as well but it didn´t work out as planned, so I´m not completely happy with this particular detail. This is what it looks like on Tony´s original: I decided against the techniques I regularly use for weathering, which is watered down black and earth acrylic paint dabbed off with paper towels and used some kind of sponge my wife uses to clean her leather winter boots and refresh the black colour. I just used it as it was and didn´t apply any more shoe polish. I wanted to achieve just a subtle used and greasy effect and I´m happy with it. Finally, for the first time ever, I have used fuller´s earth to do the weathering and while I would never use it on armor, it worked just fine on the radio, making it look dusty and old. And here´s the finished project: And now it´s on display with some of my favourite stuff... maybe one day I will attach it to a pack for some time. That would just add to the realism of having a screen-used radio... with even more holes in the back cover. Cheers mates

    Here is a comparison of the NGT 12ft float master (top) against the the Avanti Precision X (bottom) The NGT is overall a little wider diameter and the line guides are slightly out. The tip has been cut off from my Avanti already hence why the end is missing. The whipping on the NGT is gold instead of red and the eyes are a different diameter but overall a good substitute rod for the antenna.
