  5. To cut or not to cut...

    I like kneeling down for kids in wheelchairs with my swat armor, so the wedge is really nice to had cut out. If you go that route, just cut small amount at first. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  6. Looking to achieve PO certification

    Since your taking off the radio anyways... if you could repaint that blue more of a battleship grey ( lots of paint colour info on threads), that would be a great touch. Not sure if it's too blue.. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk

  10. Tunisian DLT 2.0

    Finished preparing the t-tracks and installed them with some e-6000 and used zip ties to hold them in place while curing. Here’s a template from braksbuddy. After looking at the reference pics more I became convinced that there is a dowel at the back of the handle so I did some cutting and got it in place. Then the bipod arrived and put it all together. Learned a little more about the mg34, and how it works. The bipod can be placed in two places, the front which we are used to seeing but also can be mounted at the rear. To mount, the sights need to be raised up and the flat springs need to be depressed. There are also spring locks on the legs to lock the bipod in its nested position. Its a Beast! Couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. not sure how long I could comfortably troop with it though, but it feels awesome to carry. I’ll weight it soon and give that number.. Thanks for reading and any tips or cool Mg34 facts you have are more than welcome. Also... if anyone out there knows where to get vintage drawer slides??? That would be amazing, and I’d really appreciate it. Thanks. Jon. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Hello all. Like many of you, I’ve been collecting patches n stuff. I’ve wanted to make a sandtrooper shirt for a while, so I took the patches off one of my old firefighter shirts and replaced them with sandy patches. Then made a pair of epaulets with the Canadian flag on them. I’m likening the style and wore it at the last comic con while working the 501st booth. What is everybody else doing with their patch collections? Would be great too see. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  13. Tunisian DLT 2.0

    Finished the handle with a leather trigger, used a piece air duct clamp for the guard, and rivets were filled and reshaped to make the bolts. Covered the aluminum rod with electrical conduit along with some old machine screws. In the reference pic it looks like there is a 1/3 dowel at the rear end of the handle, so I’ll have to do some re working of that to make it match. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Belt canvas colour question

    Here's a reference pic. Hope it helps. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  15. Belt canvas colour question

    I went with the least bright white canvas at the fabric shop, then got it dirty.. Remember, how it looks when you take a picture, is what it will look like when someone takes a photo with you. Pics are a great way to double check weathering appearance. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
