  1. Finally getting started on the TD build for my wife Aimee (@birthdaydino) She is about 5'5" and has a slim/athletic build. So quite a few modification to the armor will have to be made so it fits her frame and so she isn't swimming in it. This is her in all her badass glory: Got the main bulk of the trimming done. Need to finish up the legs. After this we will be sizing it to her and trimming it up some more to fit better. I will be sure to show before and after pics for. those who may do the same thing to their armor. Excited to have my wife join me on troops! This will be awesome. Heres to the future Desert Fox member!

  4. Grey-blue Color for Backpack Parts

    Yup.....it’s the Krylon one. I’m an idiot lol Sorry about that hahaha Krylon K09206007 'Rust Tough' Battleship Gray Rust Preventive Enamel - 12 oz. Aerosol https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0009XCKRY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_OjI2AbX4WC875 Edit: Updated the image above to say "Krylon"... lol
  5. Henselmonster Backpack Build

    Working on finding a good color for the bottles and trays. Battleship grey is too dark IMO, but its not bad. Trying a few other commercial options, if those don't work ill custom mix a color I think. PMS 7543 is what I am aiming for. Tested Battleship Grey and Tamiya TS-66 INJ Grey These are both too dark for my taste. I'm testing this guy out next, I'm afraid it will be too green but worth a shot.
  6. Henselmonster Backpack Build

    Hey Troops! I am finally starting my new pack build after nearly a year of collecting the right parts for it. I still want to replace my seed trays and the siphon with original parts, but I will work with what I have for now. I am planning on 3D printing the exhaust, but I am going to wait until I have the correct sized seed trays so I can fit it properly. Down the road, when i can get the cash together I will replace the radio with the woodman cast, but I am pretty happy with the one I have for now! I am using my nalgene bottle as a place holder for the top bottle. It seems to be pretty close in size to the screen ref so i may just look for some used ones at a flea market this weekend and use those. I am following @Strider's build pretty closely with this one. I am wanting to get as accurate as I can with this. So many changes need to be made but its a start for now! Hopefully over the next few months I can finish this thing! (P.S. The radio was from Rolf who I believe originally purchased it from Strider)
  7. Grey-blue Color for Backpack Parts

    Rattle can, you can find both on amazon
  8. Grey-blue Color for Backpack Parts

    Right now the best option we recommend is Battleship grey Or this Tamiya grey color. Hoping to find something a shade lighter, but for now its the closest commercial paint we can find. For my pack if I cannot find anything I may custom mix a color.
  9. Potential From Florida

    Nope! Not yet. Hopefully soon!
  10. Grey-blue Color for Backpack Parts

    Slate Blue is too blue. Command staff is actually working on settling on a single color. Something closer to battleship grey. I will make a post in my pack build thread tomorrow AM with the options I’ve tried so far. It should be grey in color, with a hint of blue, but it will look grey under most lighting.
  11. Potential From Florida

    Fantastic! Send them to @dutchy and me and we can review! Thanks!
  12. Hasboro Toy Shop - Sandtrooper and Dewback Black Series

    That reminds me...time to extend out my kidney shims....(cries into a bowl of Reeses cups)
  13. Potential From Florida

    So far, we SHOULD be getting the Mimban Trooper, barring any challenge from another detachment for it, which I doubt will happen. Nothing is official until the CRL is done. Lets get that CRL done! I bet we will see a spike in R1 armor soon as WTF will be producing R1TK armor.

    I picked mine up on Amazon, its $60 with free 2 day shipping if you have prime.
  15. Thats so cool! My next project is 3D printing a k2so head...I'm totally going to use this idea!
  16. Out of helmet head cover/hat

    PP sent for 1 hat with patch....lol That would be great, thanks Jay!
  17. Out of helmet head cover/hat

    Coyote looks good to me. I also like OD green,
  18. Dear lord... the muscles

    Before I sold my old pack, I usually wore the pack for about an hour, then went packless. Some other sandies in my garrison will pack for hours and hours with a pack on...they are the real heroes lol. Aiming to build a super lightweight pack for trooping.
  19. Putting my 3D printer to work yet again, on this beauty! Part 1 or many so far, hopefully I'll get it all printed this weekend. I didn't model this, so sadly i cannot share the files. I hope to model my own down the road but I'm focusing on the backpack at the moment.
  20. Potential From Florida

    Welcome fellow Floridian! We need more Sandys down here for sure! Hope you stick around and go the dirty route.
  21. Out of helmet head cover/hat

    I’m not super into bucket hats like that but that’s actually super cool. I could get behind that idea! Love the Mags and rank bar
  22. Out of helmet head cover/hat

    Hmmm maybe something similar to beret flash? But not exactly that shape.
