    I have build a cheap mannequin with ducktape yesterday for display my armour, inspired by a garrison mate. Many other people have made this, so it's nothing new but I think it looks cool and give somebody of you a boost to build you a own. So here we go... I had to buy some 40mm plastic plumping pipes, 4 t-pieces and some bends. a bit ducktape, cheap pillows and a papersuit for paintjobs. 2 metal 1/2" pipes and 2 pieces to screw in the pipes and screw them onto a plank(I don't know the name, sorry) Also needed a pair of extra shoes and gloves. First I dressed up with the papersuit and my wife wrapped me with ducktape. She doesn't exploited the situation and so I am still alive After I was wrapped she cut me out of the ducktapesuit. I build a skeleton like in this sketch, The knees I have build with 15°bend and in the high of the waist are 2 T-pieces and in them sticks anotger 15°Bend.so it all looks a bit more alive. I have put the skeleton into the ducktape skin and close it bit for bit and put in the pillow filling. The pipes are screwed with the two pieces (don't know the name) on a Plank and the iron pipes sticks into the plastic pipes of the mannequin. I hope you like it a bit and get inspired to build your own mannequin. I am not good in all this sandtrooper knowledge, so that's my way to take part in your community PS: I need a extra pair of shoes because I must drill a big hole into them to stick it also on the metal pipes. The gloves will filled with some foam and then given a shape to hold the weapon (only simulate, the weapon will be hold by a wire to the forearm-pipes.

    The CRL for the Magmatrooper has been reviewed and approved! It only needs to get published now. Furthermore I would like to express my thanks to all the troopers that have helped out in creating this CRL!! The link below is not the official link but the finalised version that will get published eventually. https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TD_Magma_Trooper_-_Battlefront

    Great stuff guys! i can remember when i started to get this thing kick started! Been running around all over the place, SpecOps then FISD and finally here. Now it is the home of the Magmatrooper. I remember when i asked Shawn about making the pack for me and the CRL is now done! i cannot believe it is here and i would love to be the first official if that is ok as Shawn said he would make sure of it

    I know this is a hobby for all of us, also a voluntary work for you who do the review. I know that our Hobbie often needs a lot of waiting time. That's OK so long as I don't feel a bit ignored. I don't know if anything is wrong with my armour or my art of presentation, doing the Request here or anything else. I don't know if I could walk on eachs others feet on a other platform like Facebook or a forum. At Monday my request is 4 Weeks(1 week within the holidays) old without any commentary from a person who will do the review like, sorry I am overworked, sick, or have a bad time or else... I know that's not of my buissnes, because that's private but it would let me know that I not be ignored But I think it's best to close this here and I will do a new request at a better time. So now I will delete the pictures and you can write me a PN when it's OK for you, when you have enough time and Energie for looking at the pictures and say me what I have to change and could make better. Sorry for my bad english but I guess you know what I mean. So I would be happy to read from you in a few days, weeks or whenever. Now I eat a Burger and go trooping That's why I doo that hobby

    It's not that I'm against changes but in my opinion it needs to be for the better of the collective and not for the individual. Therefor, keeping it simple is the way to go.

    Lucky you got cut out! Could've been awkward... love the idea though. Much more personal than a standard mannequin. Well done!

    Hello all, This has been a long time waiting for this to happen but it is finally here!! I got my BBB back in August 2016 and i am still doing little tweaks to my trooper. So here are some pictures of the build process and hopefully i can get approved soon May 2017 September 2017 November 2017 Thanks to Shawn for building this pack, the one in the picture is his first ever one that i commissioned with him I am still working on my trooper trying to make it Level 3 clearance with the guys over at UKG.

    Great news! The 3d printed parts for my pack are in! Because the backpack is supposed to be strapless I'll need to support the weight. I attached suspenders to the snaps underneath and that will hook onto the ab. Hopefully that will prevent the back from sliding down and pushing the chest up, choking me.

    Hi there! I'm new here, this is my first post. I went with RS Prop Masters for my kit. This is my first build and my first shot at weathering and was curious if I'm on the right track? I went with the Fuller's Earth/Woodland Scenic route, as seen on the looksirdroids site. I'm still fitting my armor and am almost there, so I'll get that posted at a later date. But anyway, here's the helmet I've weathered so far. I wanted that really dirty-grimey, crunchy, and uneven kinda look: I'll be installing a different lens, as I'm not a fan of the flimsy lens the kit came with. Just tacked it in for now so don't mind that, lol. Thanks much!

    It looks like a mess now, but after I clean it up and paint it it will blend right in I learned so so much from today's test fit. For one, that top area of the ab has to go. Another thing is the upper part of my under suit needs to be tailored to fit better. I was bulging out of the elbows and armpits.

    If you have been following my previous posts you'll see I have been working on 3D printable files for a lot of the backpack parts. I want these to be available to everyone, and allow people to update the files as they need. They are all a work in progress. The more I learn, the more accurate I can make them. My ultimate goal is to be able to provide free 3d printable files for all field pack styles. It will be a long process but i think this is a good start. I will be sure to make note of when things are updated. If you made any modifications, or make your own parts, please post them here and I will add them to the list!

    This is the neext project for my Sandtrooper Weapons Collection: A Tunisian Bapty DLT. The buttstock was made by my son (Heroma97). The front of the DLT is from a spanish garrison member. In the last days, i fitted some parts, filled them and primed the resin parts.

    I've been doing side by side comparisons with the celebration display and Jimmy's photos. The first thing that jumped out at me was the fact that the ab details are much larger and the drop boxes are much larger. I knew that if I was going to make this kit I would have to try to replace parts of the ab and most likely the boxes on the belt. So I started playing around with vacuum forming I made a cardboard mok up to get an idea of size, pulling sizes from the hot toys 1 / 6 scale figure

    I found a few options on Amazon, they are clear tubes but would work fine if painted. OD is about 2.5" This is the cheaper one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0030A057A/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A1DR7HYJVQI5BJ&psc=1 Here is a more durable but more expensive one. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000OMJ5D2/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

    I think you use them often in building your packs but just invade this may be helpful. If you wrap the Neo magnets in painters tape they are so much easier to pull apart when using but lose none of the power. They also are less likely to smash when your jerk friends come over and think it's funny to smash them together haha

    Well, as most of you know (and some of you may not) I have been building TD packs for awhile now. I really enjoy it and it has been my pleasure to be able to build quite a few for some fantastic Sandies out there. I really take alot of pride in every order, knowing that you guys (and gals) have put your trust in me to deliver a high quality and screen accurate field pack. With that said, I have been meaning to post a beginning to end build thread for quite some time. I get asked alot what goes into my packs. What makes them any better than the next. Well, I don't know if they are any better than anyone else's out there as I have nothing to compare them to. I only know from what the troopers who have purchased one have to say, and so far, it seems I have some very happy customers. This will be an ongoing thread that I will post to and update as time permits. I hope that some of you will find it helpful for your own pack builds. I am always available for questions as well so feel free to drop me a PM if you would like. So here goes... First of all, let me say that with the availablity of so many high quality and screen accurate parts made available by some extremely talented people here at the MEPD, it has made my job of building a high quality pack that much easier. Most of the parts I use in my builds I order from other vendors right here. I will withhold there names for now until I get their permission to post them. Even with the addition of some great and readily available parts, I always look to make them the best they can be before final installation. By that I mean taking the time to check them for any cracks or defects, trim them, sand them and basically prep them properly. The preparation of each piece is key to a great and long lasting prop. Second, I always use quality paints. I'm sure some of you out there may say that it makes little or no difference. I feel it does. Most of the parts that are used are made out of some sort of plastic material. The last thing I want is to have someone have a problem with paint peeling or flaking off their pack. I have had very good experiences with the Kryon Fusion paints for plastic so that is what I use. Third, assembly. Nothing is tie wrapped or hot glued on one of my packs. I want my packs to be assembled as if they will be really used in the field. Lord knows that on some of your troops, it will be like you are going into battle. Kids pulling of you. Pushing and pulling of knobs and switches. Adults banging into you. Close quarters with walls, doors, other costumers, not to mention the transport of your pack to and from events. This thing has to hold up. Every piece is assembled using a variety of nuts, bolts, washers, rivets and screws. All the while, keeping in mind that it still has to be lightweight. The pack build posted here will be a "Captains Pack". It is also a pack that was built using my "Modular" assembly for my overseas Troopers. Modular meaning it will break down into 2 sections for easier and MUCH less expensive shipping.
