  1. Man I’d love to see pics of the jig you made too! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I did something similar on my pack and put a small thread together showing how I did the frame, might be helpful! http://forum.mepd.net/index.php?/topic/15849-pvc-karrimor-style-frame-build/&tab=comments#comment-204107 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. I know this post is a little old, but if you're still hoping to make a frame from PVC, I have a build thread going over my experience building a karrimor-style PVC frame that might be helpful! -
  10. Hey all! It's been a while since I posted in this thread, but I finally finished the videos for part 2 and 3 (assembly and weathering). I wanted to share here in this thread for the sake of being complete! I was thinking about creating a second post that contains just the three videos if it might be easier for folks building/referencing to find on the forums.
  11. I've started putting together some footage from my build and definitely got sucked into adding more content to it. I'm planning on doing 3 videos: One for the parts, sources, tools, and materials, One for the assembly and attachment of everything, And one for the weathering. I've finished the first one and wanted to share it here! I hope that it can be helpful to all our future troopers looking for resources.
  12. Haha thanks Charlie!! I am definitely interested!! The only thing that sucks is I’ll have to rebuild the whole radio again because the scale is off. I compared my vac-formed faceplate to the dimensions that Sonixworld has of the real one and I was bummed that it was like an inch too small on all sides. So once I muster up the motivation to start on it again I will give you a ring!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
