  1. Congrats to all. Looking forward to another great year for the MEPD.
  2. There are larger size pad backers that will work with your 5" diameter Tupperware lid. Check out this post: http://forum.mepd.net/index.php?showtopic=12971
  3. No. They are suppose to be there, since the original Sandtroopers had them. In fact, I had to add them to my ATA kit to make it more accurate.
  4. If I don't have a backpack, then I attach it via an elastic loop to my left shoulder armor strap that goes from the shoulder straps to the shoulder armor. The elastic loop can be "opened or closed" with some velcro that I sewed onto the ends of the elastic strip.
  5. You can't be approved with one based on the CRLs, but don't let that stop you from having one for non-canon events, which are most of the trooping events. Just use loops like the TK ESB holsters, so you can easily put it on or off. As for PO or SWAT, people do it for all different reasons. Some for the challenge, others for status and being able to purchase PO/SWAT specific merchandise, and others may just want a super accurate Sandtrooper. It is just a personal choice if you want to go for PO or SWAT.
  6. Thanks. I used the multi-layer single paint method, where you dab large areas with a sponge/paper towel containing diluted Raw Umber and then dab with a clean sponge/paper towel to remove some of the paint and to get a nice weathering base. Then I used less diluted Raw Umber paint in specific areas and dabbed it with a slightly wet sponge/paper towel to get a nice multi-layered effect.

    Comes down to which Sandtrooper you are trying to emulate. Especially if you are going for SWAT after getting Officer.

  10. You may have to remove the strap loops past the fasteners based on the images, but it looks pretty close.
