*** LAUNCHING ON MAY 4th ****
Brothers and Sisters of the MEPD,
We have been working very hard behind the scenes to develop an amazing accreditation scheme, aimed at achieving the ultimate accuracy for Sand Troopers in the areas of Armour, Field Packs and Weaponry.
Tunisia '76 has been created by existing SWAT members of the international Sand Trooper community, to assist new members towards attaining the Tunisia '76 Tactical Recognition Flash (TRF).
We know that there is a desire for troopers to become the ultimate screen accurate (canon) Sandtrooper, based on the 1976 Starwars 'A New Hope' from the original trilogy. So we have pulled together our resources, references, builds and intricate backlog of information to put together this amazing accreditation.
The Tunisia '76 Members Only FaceBook Page and associated tutorials have been carefully constructed to allow you a friendly, clean and professional place to share your progress while you work towards the individual sections and ultimate accreditation.
Unlike other related social media, we are heavily moderated and constantly monitored to ensure that you get the best experience from your engagement with us. We guarantee your integrity with our network of helpful and professional, individually assigned Instructors.
So what is the Tunisia 76' accreditation ?
It's simple really.
We absolutely want you to be the best ANH Sandtrooper you can be, with your Armour, Weapons and Field Pack.
We have set a minimum standard of accuracy across all of these areas which can be achieved once all of the criteria have been evidenced and approved.
While we are happy to help newcomers to our hobby with their costume builds, we stipulate that anyone looking to achieve the Tunisia 76' accreditation must be at least certified as an active PO with the MEPD (Our MER - Minimum Entry Requirement).
Access to Tunisia '76 is open to EVERYONE. You can use our references, detailed photographs, links to exact parts and detailed tutorials to help you towards each section. But you will only be able to progress towards your accreditation (and be assigned a personal Instructor), once the minimum entry requirements have been met.
We even have a dedicated store coming soon, to purchase specific related items that are extremely hard to find !
We are not an alternative for MEPD SWAT accreditation. You can still work towards that if you desire and we have made sure that our standards do not conflict with those criteria already set by our brothers in the MEPD.
Our award system is available internationally and can be successfully achieved by anyone that satisfies the criteria.
You can choose to progress towards one, two or all three sections at any time.
Only once all three sections have been completed, will you qualify for the full Tunisia '76 Accreditation.
By successfully achieving the Tunisia '76 accreditation for your Sandtrooper, you will be one of the most accurate representations the costuming community has to offer.
We are here to support you, help you through the build processes with step by step assistance in an effort to help you become one of us.
This is how you will progress through the scheme....
