    As many of you have probably seen, HappyTrooper posted a video with templates and a parts list for a do-it-yourself RT-97c build. Needing a new project and loving the look of this blaster, I decided to tackle it. This is in no way a build thread, but more just a few pictures showing the process that I went through. If you want the full build thread, go check out his video. If you are interested in making your own, you can find his video here: Also, if you are interested in doing a DLT-19, he also has a video, templates, and parts list as well. You can find that video here: One small note: I did use ABS pipe as much as I could due to the lighter weight. I used it for the 2” pipe, both 3” couplers, and the 2” to 1.5” reducer. I also used other corner braces and other small parts that I already had around the house. Overall, this gun is super lightweight and I can’t wait to troop in it. I plan on unveiling this at the Intermountain Healing Hearts event that is coming up on 09/09/2017. Pictures to come of this baby in action. Huge thanks to HappyTrooper for providing the templates, parts list, and amazing video. Your work is truly inspiring. --------------- Initial fabrication Testing Bondo work Final Dry Fitting Prime and Paint Final Assembly Final Product with Weathering

    Do what makes you happy but they didn't paint the insides of the screen used helmets. Unless you have a long neck, no one is going to see under your helmet 99% of the time. As far as mesh goes, you can wear a baklava to hide your face but personally, that's too hot and I don't care for it.

    I have a long strip from Trooperbay and it fit on the bolts. I couldn't do the tab method as that'd always show up in my peripheral vision and annoy me lol. The screw method is commonly used

    That could be a possibility, but i'd rather keep it as it is at the moment and create completely new merchandise with all the new costumes incorporated in it.

    I texted Anthony and he replied already Below his reply, and yes I get kisses from him As far as I remember the other sandies were local Tunisians. I guess unless they have their name on the filming call sheet from the shoot or an image from behind the scenes it is always going to be a question mark? I am pretty sure if someone wanted to claim it, they can contact Lucasfilm for written confirmation about their involvement. Cheers xxx

    Yeah, he's drilled out the one ring of smaller holes towards the center. I blast TD chatter from my radio as well. I use a pyle 50 watt hooked to a mini mp3 player board and cheap rechargeable battery.

    This trooper here is currently deployed with this exact pack. Sean, your work is top notch. I'm trying to get better pics taken, like action shots with my brother who is a photographer. What drew me to this pack is how it reminded me of the old radio packs the troops used in WW2; the grunt look which in my opinion what the trooper is all about. As well as my love for Rogue One. Hit Sean up if you need a pack guys

    This the problem with ROTJ based armour like WTF, AP, ATA, TE, RWA, DA, MTK etc.. they all have moulded in joining strips that are designed to be overlapped when assembled - governing the size you can make them. Using the measurements suggested by Jason are fine if you are slim and have proper ANH armour, but not so good in your situation as I believe a narrow joining strip on extra wide moulded strips like on your armour look bad. You can use wider strips and I do this a lot for people who to big for armour. The key is to make it look right but more importantly - fit right. If the arm strips need to be 25mm wide, use 25mm wide. I don't like it when someone suggests using thin strips when they are struggling to get the armour to fit right. There is no law saying you have to use thin strips. The ANH arm strips varied from 13-20mm wide and the legs 18-25mm so they do vary. The original armour only fits stick insects so if you can get away with using thin strips, good for you. If not, use whatever size necessary

    Your canvas shoulder pouch is correct and is the one screen accurate and accepted. The belt pouches must be leather / leather like.

    I would also trim those ear bolts down. They will catch and pull on a balaclava .

    I had lenses from fenix props that had holes drilled in . I glued in Chicago type screws from ace and the used a heat gun to shape the lenses for fit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sorry to hear but it shouldn't be too difficult rebuilding the front sight with some black abs sheet, heat forming it to the right shape and attaching it to the blaster. Hope you get what I mean Next time let your son play with the rubber DLT

    That's pack #3. Pack 1 is the one with the round filter. You'd have to go look through SWAT submission, I can't think on top of my head if one has been SWAT approved. Doesn't hurt to start a build and share your process.
