    After a long break, I have acquired all the parts for my pack, so will try and get it built and this project finished...

    Following in the footsteps of Jcalus (Jon) and Bigwam (Thomas), I wanted to have my own Bapty DLT built using original parts. I was lucky to source an original MG 34 cooling jacket, bipod and flashhider. I´ve build my own wooden back part on my first Bapty DLT, but unfortunately was too busy last month to do that again (as it is quite a lot of work and very messy) ...fortunately I have a good friend who has already quite a lot of experience building these part and he has again done a terrific job on mine, couldn´t be happier, thanks a lot, Martin (Heroma)! I have some replica grips from Latvia too, but dropped one of them and a part broke off... but as it only adds to the used look of the Bapty, I didn´t bother too much and used it anyway. As this build actually uses the same approach as those by Jon and Thomas, I will not include any pics of the building process but only of the finished Blaster. So this is what it is supposed to look like: And here it is: Also added the little wire around the triggerguard: original: mine:

    Finally some progress! Finished the stock and painted it. The barrel still needs a bit of work.

    Your gear suits you very well, looks awesome, mate! As far as the ears are concerned, the gaps will have to be even larger, mine were large from the beginning and I had to make them even larger. In some scenes you can even see the light shining through those gaps. You already know my and M4vrick's SWAT threads.

    I really do not want to come off as elitist but I’m sure it’ll be conveyed that way... BUT we aren’t other detachments. There’s no other detachment that takes accuracy and much more seriously as we do. We’re also a relatively small detachment compared to FISD and JRS. I agree with you on the shield patches. We need to get these available and in the hands of new members. @Gordonator is wrapping up the 10” patches now. Maybe he can chime in. It is a lot of work getting things made, shipping, etc. on top of family, work, etc. I tried it for my garrison and couldn’t hack it.

    lets face fact, we're not talking "constantly" here. There is currently almost no merch available- 10" patch (Closed) Coasters Box Kit (name plates) and a Deployed Only coin. There are a few "interest threads" but that's it. Soooo, two unlimited items, one closed item, and one restricted item. The basics like the shield patch should be pretty much on-tap. We've got troopers who have been members for over a year or more who can't even get a detachment-logo patch. The problem with "there not being merch coming out constantly" is that while some vets may already have all they need, loads of newer troopers don't have anything at all. You want new troopers to stay motivated? You gotta let them represent. Stuff like t-shirts and patches are basics. Nobody is saying we need to have racing shirts for every season, (I despise racing shirts so I'd be the LAST person asking for that- LOL), but our merch dept is a ghost town compared to other detachments.

    You are doing a great job with this. I like how you are using the lighter colours to keep it subtle.

    Hi and welcome to the dirtpit I already like it! If some of the areas in between the dirt are still too white and shiny, give it a wash with a watered down mixture of the earth colour.
