  1. Helmet Issue

    You could try to swing the ear slightly backwards leaving the bottom screw in place... Or maybe lower the brow a little bit, that way the overhang will look smaller...
  2. Bootlegger137’s Sandy Test Fitting (AM 2.0)

    Quoted for truth! I can only echo what the others already said, knee plate and shoulder bells,,, And now get the bucket done and show the full setup, bro!
  3. Filter Pack #5

    Hey Thomas, that is a amazingly detailed picture of the side greeblie... Is that a exact match? Do we have such detailed pictures of the screen used pack or is it just a interpretation of what we can actually see on commonly available reference?
  4. Wook's Docking Bay 94 Captain Build (AP)

    Top notch, looks like my next method to add paint drips!
  5. Wook's Docking Bay 94 Captain Build (AP)

    Haha, pun intended....
  6. Backpack build by Storm56

    Blah, blah..... still hate you for that, Franck! Yeah, ok, just kiddin....
  7. Weathering the pack

    Don't have any pictures at hand right now but i did the same as i did with my armor... In my case i used Fullers Earth in light brown and a little bit of darker brown plus grey and hairspray... In case your trooping with it don't handle it too carefully, this will add some natural wear and tear... Btw. I'm more a collector than a trooping member and i have my armor and backpack on a mannequin forsome years now, the natural dust from all those years makes it look even better... It's the only mannquin i don't need to clean from time to time... that's one more reason to love TD's, huh?
  8. A Sandtrooper in the making...my WIP.

    Nice build! Looking good! I especially like how you did these buttons, i'll try that with my shoulder covers on my just finished Tie Pilot... This bump...
  9. Wook's Docking Bay 94 Captain Build (AP)

    Same here, i love your attention for details! i'll be following with great interest! Imho the helmet is, beside the armor weathering of course, the most noticeable part of every TD! Keep up your good work!
  10. First TD Build

    Man, i never liked the acrylic paint weathering but you did a stellar job! I might have to rethink and give it a try on my next build,,,,
  11. Henselmonster Backpack Build

    Good choice, John! My vote for the right bottle too!
  12. attching the mortor tube.

    And look at the screenused pictures closely... Place upper hole here...
  13. Henselmonster Backpack Build

    Niiiice! I really like your attention for small details... keep it coming! Looks like you just need the bottles... PM sent!
  14. Grey-blue Color for Backpack Parts

    That's great but nothing i can paint my parts with... It would be easier for other pack builders if there was a paint name or chart number to achieve the same results!
  15. Grey-blue Color for Backpack Parts

    I tend to agree with Woody. I just painted a few parts for my pack with battleship grey and it definatly is very dark. I painted bottles as well as a seed tray and canteen and nothing screemed that's the correct color at me! It's just a personal feeling nothing provable but it looks too dark to me too! Do you have a color chart match for this specific color you mixed, Woody? Could you match it with RAL or Pantone charts?
  16. Sand Trooper pack parts

    You're more than welcome, bro!
  17. Sand Trooper pack parts

    For the Sonix contact @woodman, he has. the most accurate Sonix replica to date. If located in Europe RS Propmasters will sell these to you. There are some cheaper alternatives in the For sale section, just have a look there... Since real siphons get harder and harder to find the vacformed siphon by RWA @ross8008is a nice substitute. There is a review thread, have a look here... http://forum.mepd.net/index.php?/topic/15638-rwa-vacuformed-shires-syphon/
  18. You did sew this yourself? Nice work, i'd like to see your try on screenaccurate MP-40 pouches ...
  19. Sand Trooper pack parts

    You're welcome, that's what we're here for!
  20. Sand Trooper pack parts

    Have a look here, close to 100% accurate exept for age and one of the nicest guys to deal with! http://forum.mepd.net/index.php?/topic/15237-fs-lion-star-canteen-exact-match-to-gio-style/ Since we know the real deal was a Gio'Style 600 canteen the faucet cover isn't 'correct' anymore!
  21. ANOTHER Sonix Radio!

    One for me too, please! I feel with you, bro! I know the feeling of loosing something that was so close!
  22. ANOTHER Sonix Radio!

    Do i read this right, it was for buy it now for only $200??? That's even more crazy and i could get even more green in envy!
  23. ANOTHER Sonix Radio!

    What the ****?!? Again??? And more important, i missed it again!!! So it wasn't me, i wish i was... step into the spotlight, buyer!
  24. Shires Siphon 100 on ebay

    Anthony, haven't seen you for ages... where have you been? Great to have you back! Starting a TD, mate? Welcome to the sandpit!
  25. Shires Siphon 100 on ebay

    Me not, i'll stick with mine for now! ...at least untill i will be able to score a correct real vintage UP90 with fins! The one in this auction as well as mine and the ones shown on the pictures above aren't exactly what was used at least on the "Move-along" backpack! It's the closest match but i assume a updated model from a few years later in history line.
