  1. Looking great! Nice work on the weathering. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. If I may say one critique... The trigger guard has a different shape in the reference pic. But other than that.. again nice work! Looks great. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk

  5. Nice work! Looking forward to watching this build. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  6. Those are great screen shots! Where are they from? Great to see a new armour CRL coming to the MEPD arsenal. Nice work troopers! Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  7. Even though it doesn't say it in the CRL, the case for "core" armour consistently of TK & TD seems like a good idea to me. Plus in this pic it looks like there is a vertical part to the kidney. Just doesn't line up nicely with the posterior. Just my two cents. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Added a seam along the bottom edge and it turned out great. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Nice find! Sent from my HTC One_M8 using Tapatalk
  11. Ya. Some have that front seam on the lid, and others don't. I did it to match the one from the pic you posted. Thanks ! Sent from my HTC One_M8 using Tapatalk
  12. Yes for sure. That's where I started, and used the measurements from iconoclasta_88 for my build. Just not sure what that extra seam is. Sent from my HTC One_M8 using Tapatalk
  13. And the dimensions are 3.5" x 8.25" x 1.5" Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Hello all, I'm Jon/ TD84414 and I'm going for swat.. So far so good, but during my review there was a pouch problem.. I had the wrong one. I thought it was a Spanish pouch but it turns out it was French, so I made myself one. Here are some pics Cut the leather on a 45, glued it, and then box stitched it together. The stain I learned about on-line from a British leather smith is vinegar mixed with rusty metal. Any rustable iron/steel will work, but if it's rusty it will be ready sooner. My brew is some rusty tie wire, steel wool, chunk of rusted can, and black sand left over from gold sluicing. Just rub it on and the leather goes black.. may take a couple of coats. I used a thinner leather for the front strap but it wasn't the same colour so it was replaced with thinker stuff. Then bcz I assumed the original pouches would have been weather treated some way, I gave it a nice, but not too nice, of a black polish job. But my question is this.. in my review, it was pointed out the large Spanish pouch has some sort of crease or seam on it. But after looking around it doesn't seem to be on any other pouches I can find. Any ideas on what it could be, of best replications of it? Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
