    Brothers and Sisters, Both FISD and MEPD have reached consencus about the following: R1 Jedha sandtrooper and the Kyber patrol trooper will be added to our ranks. Both CRL's must be made and will be added to the CRL eventually. But before that can be done both characters must be recognised by the 501st. This doesn't mean that you can't start building one as we do need some excellent pictures for the visual guide part of the CRL, so let's see those WIP threads popping up! A special section will be created for each new character, as is done for the other characters that are part of the FISD. Currently we are also looking in the CRL for the SE TD, so even more exciting news! I understand that this is a significant change for the MEPD, but we do need to keep moving forward and welcoming new members that have exciting new armors or will build one. WELCOME TO THE MEPD R1 Jedha sandtrooper and the Kyber patrol trooper

    As Juan said, we have reached consencus about the R1 sandtrooper and the Kyber patrol. They both will be added to the MEPD. I'm so excited right now!! Official announcement incoming!

    Thanks everyone! It's been a real emotional journey getting this done over the last 4 months to fulfil one of my late daughter's wishes and getting into the MEPD would be the perfect icing on the cake! Sent from my XT1092 using Tapatalk

    (I borrowed some of this from Zac's post.) If your armor and gear has been made to meet all the CRL requirements and you are ready to request Deployment as a MEPD Officer, please start a new thread with the next title: TD-**** (your TD ID) Requesting Deployment And then post the following: Your Name Your 501st TD ID with a link to your 501st profile Your MEPD forum name Your Garrison And, post the following pictures of your armor and gear: -One helmet off photo. This is not to be a random picture of you. It is to be a photo of you, in costume, without your helmet on. A mug shot if you will. -One full armor, helmet on, front photo. Show in one picture the whole look of your armor and gear. Also show Sniper Knee Plate clearly enough. -One full armor, helmet on, right side photo. Showing the pouches mounted on sides if you have them and the gap closed. -One full armor, helmet on, left side photo. Showing the pouches mounted on sides if you have them and the gap closed. -One full armor, helmet on, back photo. Backpack most appear clear enough for evaluation. -Canvas or elastic shoulder straps detail photo. -Canvas belt detail photo. -Abs details close up photo. Showing the 3 buttons an TD abdominal plate. Bucket (pictures can show details individually or in groups): -A close up photo clearly showing the flat green lenses. -Detail photo showing no stripes on all grey traps and tears. -Detail photo of frown, showing 4 teeth cut out and grey paint. -Detail photo of hovi-mix mic tips (or replica) mounted on helmet. -Detail photos of blue tube stripes. Weapons: -At leas one picture showing the whole weapon (BFG or E11). -Detail pictures of mods required for the specific weapons. Finally, -One (or several) full body action (or attitude poses) good quality picture. This will be used for your Deployment photo, so make it a good one! If you think you need or want to more extensively show your armor and gear, feel free to post more and more pictures!! We LOVE pictures! Good luck to you all!! Hope to see you as MEPD Deployed Officers soon. If I can be of any help, please let me know. Saludos Juan The timeframe from the initial review to the final review will be 7 days. So in maximum 7 days the Deployment Officer will let you know if you will be hunting droids with us! -dutchy

    I apologize I didn't post the steps I did to get this far with the backpack. Time is very limited for me. In other words, no time to take a pic and post it here. Sorry! Originally I wanted to get it done for our Canada Day parade on July 1 but I couldn't because of small details I had to deal with. My pack is almost complete. Shout out to Charlie (Crashmann) for the backpack kit!! It's awesome... challenging, but awesome! The only thing I have to do is fasten the top part of the seed trays to the bottom using Pandatroopers zip tie method and attach my backpack straps (had to sacrifice my old small pack for this. It served me well! ). Oh yeah, mustn't forget weathering!! Both boxes open up so I can store stuff inside especially my cell phone which will double as my player for Sandtrooper chatters. I even changed my ringtones to the imperial march and my notification to an R2D2 beep just in case someone is trying to reach me during my troop. They should blend in with the chatter. I am targeting this weekend to finish the backpack and hope to apply for PO soon. Eventually, I hope to apply for SWAT when I get my E-11 Bapty blaster done. I currently have a Hasbro Bapty blaster.

    Hey Szen, nice to see your application here! A great build, awesome work on the pack... I'm pretty sure you're glad that you survived the sewing on your faux-leather radio suround Should be a walk in the park, good luck!

    Starting to finish the smaller pieces getting ready for assembly. This is not all of the pieces. As I sand finish and paint the pieces I will post them here. I'm currently printing the larger base pieces that these will fit into. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    This might be an overkill of information but here's a picture of all the spanish pouches together.

    I think that is how it went, first the alley check scene and after that the roadblock scene. So this means that there are 2 variations on one pack. Isn't being a part of the MEPD fun

    Great looking armour, well done! What kind of kit is that? Good luck on your approval

    So as we all know, storage for personnel effects are slim to none in TK and TD alike. I can't be the first to think of this but has anyone ever though of or actually used their pack as storage as well? My thought was using the "tool box" as a storage box as well. In this picture you can see that it looks almost like there's electrical tape keeping it closed . What I came up with is finding some low profile style hinges and using e6000 to stick them on to the toolbox that I can make using foam core or foam board(to save on weight) and making it closeable. Put some netting or some kind of storage solution on the inside for a cell phone, wallet, etc. Any thoughts? When I get a drawing made up I'll post on this thread so it's a little easier to understand. -Commander_Cody Sent from my SM-G928T using Tapatalk

    May need to get this set updated after this build - Looks like it has been seriously omitted..! http://www.mepd.net/crl/private/

    This is a real pity, especially for those that want to search back on old threads for their build research! i wonder if they realise? They either do, and are being greedy, or they don't and will work it out when they lose a stack of users. looks like I'll be diggin out my Flickr account and using that from now on. tbh The advertising pop-ups on photobucket annoyed the **** out of me anyway

    Oh and for the Special Edition Sandtrooper, the base armor is the ROTJ TK version.

    Nice pics, and nice to see some extra small troopers being lined up for recruitment. personally I use some velcro strategically attached to the pouch and back pack straps that seems to work well. I'm thinking I might make it more of a permanent attachment to the strap at some point (the sand storms can make the velcro useless over time )

    Your kit looks amazing, and that pauldron has definitely seen some action! But your blaster, that's ace...the details are amazing, you can even see the cooling fins in the barrel. All in all a job well done, this should be an easy deployment! Good luck!!

    Hi Chris! Although a little dated, this web page has a detailed description of the 5 different sandtrooper backpacks, and it sounds like you're building a #1 pack: http://www.looksirdroids.com/backpacks.html Here's another analysis and description of the details that go into the backpack by MonCal: The top left filter box is actually pretty easy to make, and I can offer the parts for it if you're interested: Cut out the hole so you can see the filter element, then glue the sides to the base, and the lid to the sides. ========== The center bottle is difficult to replicate because you can see the domed shape at the top. There was some discussion a while back about different bottles, but no one has found a definitive item. Check out Strider's build thread using a cut down shampoo bottle: Photobucket is being poopy and not sharing the photos, so here they are: It looks like the bottle was cut down by an inch or two, then he used a plastic shim inside to mount the lid. The top of the bottle has a UFO shaped item, just slightly wider than the bottle. Some folks have used the backing plate for a drill mounted sanding disc: The rest of the items from your list should be easy to source (I might know a guy ) I've lost the link for the screen captures on MEPD, but you can find a bunch on FISD (after you sign in): https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/gallery/album/54-sandtroopers-blueray-screen-captures/ Let me know if there's anything else you need help with.

    On the bottom I would make a swinging door similar to how the containers used for pneumatic tube systems are. I would put my items in a "view-tainer" and stick them up in the tube, swing/slide the bottom shut. I have seen TKs do it with their thermal detonator piece. But that is something that people have messed with. At least on the pack, the least obvious place someone would put something is in the radio box or the mortar. And it wouldn't have to be a View-tainer, the dollar store has little kids size water bottles that are skinny.

    I was trooping yesterday at the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (farm league for the Milwaukee Brewers) game when, as I came through a crowd I heard a little boy's voice cry out "It's the kyber patrol!" I wasn't even wearing my Sandie backpack, but I guess I had the beat up look the kid identified. I won't lie, it totally made my night.

    I found dabbing it off with an old damp fluffy towel worked better than wiping. it gave a much better sandy/dappled effect.
