    The fourth helmet i had built in the last few weeks is the "stop that ship" helmet aka "Docking Bay 96 V2 - Tuck & Roll". For this helmet there are good pictures, that can help to built them.

    List of components: "shotgunshells"/"capacitors" mortartube radardish backing plate radardish greyish-blue bottle toilet plunger cap Shires UP 90 vintage toiled syphon "beestinger" Gio´Style bottle - I think most people believe this to be a canteen sold by the Italian company Gio´Style in the seventies, it´s called the "Safari 600" and original vintage bottles can still be found for a reasonable price on ebay. If you are too lazy too go for a treasure hunt, there´s also a modern version by a company called "Lionstar" which looks almost identical, here´s a comparison pic: These Lionstar canteens are available through our own member of the command staff M4vrick, feel free to contact him. The best way to attach the beestinger is to take the outer shell apart and remove the inner bottle, be aware that the styrofoam inside, which is meant to keep stuff warm and cold, will be quite messy to remove. Use a screwdriver and gentle force to take it apart, a heat gun might be useful too, to loosen the glue. The canteen will be attached to the lower grey seedtrays via an aluminium bracket, this is easy enough to make yourself. Look at the dimensions carefully to get the adjustment right. I have used a threaded rod of the size M4, drilled holes into the bottle and attached it to the bracket using some lock nuts. I guess the paint scheme of the bottle itself is quite clear. The bracket should be painted satin/matte black with some of the paint being scratched off. Please look at the reference pics again.

    Hi, Does anyone have any suggestions on where to get good quality parts for the backpack? I've managed to source a few originals and also some nice printed parts but some didn't come out so well The pieces I am missing are those inside the green line in this pic. I might have a line on a Sonix kit but any more options are welcome. Thx AW

    It's not necessary to add any weathering to your undersuit mate.

    Hello dirty boy, 1. for the colours use the pic from Daniel 2. the Tubestripes are different on all helmets. 12, 13 or 14 .... If it helps, look at these link. There are original screenused helmets: http://starwarshelmets.com/original-stormtrooper-stop-that-ship-helmet.htm http://starwarshelmets.com/original-stormtrooper-move-along-helmet.htm 3. nothing, wood or foam

    So I started this build as a Tk and recently decided that I wanted to make a TD instead because I knew being able to weather would make me feel better about the armor. I have most of the armor built I’m still in the process of learning to weather my armor and I’m kinda nervous to start.

    This is the fifth helmet of the Corona Breakdown. The "Alley Check Private". Basic is the HDPE-Kit from DA-Props. Not easy to paint, the color does not last very well. You have to treat him carefully. Some reference Pics:

    Amazing work Wayne, down to the tiniest little detail. After having this one finished, you can still build the Bapty variant... would probably be a piece of cake for you compared to this.

    List of components: "shotgunshells"/"capacitors" mortartube radardish backing plate radardish greyish-blue bottle toilet plunger cap Shires UP 90 vintage toiled syphon "beestinger" - this part hasn´t been identified yet, but feel free to use whatever you want as long as it looks right, cable or tube... The outer diameter should be around 1,5 cm. The lower end seems to be cut at an angle as I have done with my own pack: How you want to attach it to the Gio´Style bottle is up to you, with my second pack, I have used thick EVA foam, punched out a hole with the same diameter as the tube and glued the "beestinger" in. I then cut the remaining foam to the right size to fit into the lower part of the canteen, which I had freed of its innards previously. See more on that in the next point about the canteen.

    List of components: "shotgunshells"/"capacitors" mortartube radardish backing plate radardish greyish-blue bottle toilet plunger cap Shires UP 90 vintage toiled syphon Unfortunately prices are going sky-high for these vintage toilet parts at the moment... There were two variants of these syphons used in the film, one being the UP100 and the other one which you will find on this particular pack is the UP90, which is a tad bit shorter, this is what they look like: Inexpensive replicas of the UP100 can be bought from Ross Walmsley from RWA Creations, they are made of HIPS, very light and sturdy but can be a handful to assemble. They have to be cut down to match the shape of the UP90 on this particular pack. Some of the original syphons had "Made in England" written on them but the version on pack#3 doesn´t, either it was the version without the writing or they just covered said writing with some tape in order not to spoil the illusion. Remember to get the angle right and by any means, don´t cut off the threaded section at them bottom as it is visible in the film.

    No updates for a while but I assure u all I have been cracking on! Scratch made a working rear sight, fitted the hand grips, butt, various screws/panels and other details. The barrel and receiver are still two separate parts but I push fitted them together for the photos. The white filler (milliput) has been applied this afternoon so is still rough until it sets overnight and I can sand it down. It’s not 100% accurate but I’m trying to make everything from scratch..don’t judge me too harshly [emoji51] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks for that, much appreciated. I have decided to ditch that pack and get another from Trevor McKenna. I have never been happy with that RS pack, so it gives me a good excuse to replace it. It will be pack 5, so a bit different from pack 3. Thanks again for your review. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk

    What can you do during the troop break? Right - build helmets. After resarching some pictures, i decided to build the "Cantina Sergeant". You can see him in several shots in the film, unfortunately never really exactly. Here´s how i made it - hopefully the best: "Cantina Sergeant" aka "Roadblock Captain" aka "Alley way Sergeant" aka "Docking Bay Sergeant": And here some Reference pics:

    List of components: "shotgunshells"/"capacitors" mortartube radardish backing plate radardish greyish-blue bottle If you look at the screen references you may notice that the lower bottle looks slightly wider in diameter that the upper bottle. Such bottles are easy to find, I always source them from my local diy store in the car section, mine are bottles containing dashboard wipes. In the following picture you can see the lower bottle with the larger diameter on the left and the upper bottle on the right. These bottles should look rather grey than blue, I recommend using RAL 7031 in a satin finish to paint them, in the states you should be able to find some battleship grey colour. Note that the right one has already been weathered, thus the difference in colour.

    List of components: "shotgunshells"/"capacitors": the source of this particular greeblie isn´t completely clear yet, however, as long as it looks right, it will work, this can easily be self-built, you just need some kind of plastic tube - with a diameter of around 2cm - and fill it with epoxy or putty adding a little "antenna" at the front, for this you can use wire. Here are some screen references. and this is what mine look like: there´s obviously a black plastic plate between these shells and the seedtray, it was probably easier for the prop department to attach them this way.

    Allright, let´s get this started. By no means do I consider this to be complete nor without certain grey areas that can be lively discussed in this thread by you all as soon as I have finished this and it´s open to the public to be discussed. First of all it has to be noted that there are different versions of this pack. These are worn by the following troopers (in order as they appear in the movie), here come the screen references: 1 Davin Felth in the "Look Sir, droids"-scene. Pack is still flawless in factory fresh shape/no tape/everything still holding together 2 The "Move along"-captain, portrayed by the great Anthony Forrest in the roadblock scene. The pack is already starting to come apart, tape is used to hold it together. 3 possibly also used by "Mr No-Brow"??? (he´s standing behind the trooper wearting pack#2) I think it´s possible because of the angle the radardish is mounted. 4 The Cantina Captain. Tape is used and a labpipe has been added. 5 The Captain in the Falcon-take-off-scene (spinning around). Looks like there´s even more tape used to hold the lower seed tray together, note that to me it seems that there is no more blue-grey visible on the right side of said tray. Next post will be a breakdown of the the components of this specific pack. Cheers mates

    Hello! My name is Corey. I had a tk in the mid south garrison back in the day but I've been inactive for a few years after selling the kit--desperate times --anyway I'm now in Hawaii, and have met most of the Pacific Outpost, I have mostly completed a new set of armor this time going for a dirtier look . Hopefully I will have everything else I need in the next couple of months to reactivite my 501st status, and return to this hobby that I've missed over the last few years.
