  1. Paint those 6 split rivets white + weathering. Need to see the top ab snap
  2. I know you're using the original strapping method but you can add some snaps on the inside and use some elastic. The tension will help keep it in place
  3. Make longer straps that connect the front and back plates over your shoulders and it'll allow more clearance.
  4. Sweet! Glad my meddling did some good!
  5. LOL that's hilarious!
  6. I'd say the shins are a charcoal grey and the pack is a dark grey with a hint of blue/green. I wouldn't quite call it green though.
  7. Post screen grabs and not pictures of a monitor screen. Based on the first photo, if the pack is green, so are the grey sections on the back of the helmet.
  8. These both look awesome, Ian. Maybe start offering a run
  9. Don't walk through the woods during hunting season though
  10. 501st access granted
  11. @Felice I believe he's ready for review
  12. Rotate the biceps and pull the shoulder bells up more too. So close to getting this completed!
  13. You can do it either way. I made a little stack of abs pieces and put mine on there.
  14. I recommend doing a wash over the armor to get rid of some of the shine. Heavily watered down burnt umber all over, let it partially dry and blot it out with an old t-shirt.
  15. Maybe edit out the plastic sound that we all make when walking lol
  16. Check out Thomas, one of our awesome SWAT members thighs. See how he has some ridge showing. That's perfectly acceptable. You just don't want a ton and if you need wider, do it on the rear.
  17. Look over some of the recent PO applicants that have been approved to give you an idea on the pack standards. I'd replace those shoulder straps with ones that have sew on snaps. It's a quick fix.
  18. Wow, outstanding! Props on the great quality photos and from what I can see this should be an easy approval.
  19. backpack

    Wow, that looks great
  20. You get points taken away if I see another canteen facing the wrong direction!
  21. Can you share some pictures? Might make it easier to help identify the parts. Just leave a little extra material, you can leave some ridge showing with the cover strips but not too much. Shim in the back if you need a lot more room.
  22. backpack

    So you're telling me you have a shires source? lol
  23. No able to see your photos. Create an account over at and upload photos there. You can set it to private so only the shared image path will get viewed.
  24. Looking good!
  25. Wow, that looks amazing!
