  4. I picked this guy up at celebration Orlando and always thought he would look cool sitting on a mountain peak. Loder peak, east of canmore in the Canadian Rockies. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  5. MY DLT-21

    Looks great so far! The handmade props are my favorite. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  6. PVC Karrimor-style Frame Build

    That is awesome! It looks great and helps with the cost. Those real frames are getting harder and harder to find and more expensive. I've been working on up grading my pack and have gone through a few aluminum pipes trying to do the same with hot sand. Hasn't worked that well for me. I'll definitely give this technique a try. Thanks! Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  7. That is such a cool idea! Really nice work on the build. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Pack #5 Filter

    I made mine... It's a 3" pvc pipe 6.25" long, with .6cm / 15/64" wood dowels. Then covered with black felt. I drilled the dowels then cut them at 45 to size. I couldn't find any good pics of the original filter, so the caps are inset and I added a cover of a firefighter voice amp as a detail. Using hot glue it was easy, done in a day, and nice n cheap! Hope it helps. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  9. Looks awesome! Really nice work. They are heavy but feel and sound so good! The longest I've trooped with mine was about 40min.. Now I need to get some real Sterling parts for my next Babty! Lol.. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  10. Helmet Issue

    Just an idea. What If you trimmed the curved line then brought the whole ear up leaving a screen accurate gap at Mark 2. ?? Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  11. Helmet Issue

    The ear looks a bit low.. the top should be just below the bottom of the brow. can you raise it up? Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  12. That's a great idea. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  13. I tried to upload a pic but it won' let me.. If you go to http://looksirdroids.com/hd_caps/pages/sandtrooper_hd_117.htm there is a great pic of the filter pack. Hope it helps.
  14. Great looking weathering Olympus! Just a few things on the field pack. -The filter isn' the right style or size. - the bottle looks tapered.. but it shouldn' be. - Tupperware stow-n-go should be lid against the seed trays, not facing out. - and the radio.. Just a few things, all part of the fun !
  15. Nice kit! Great to see more PO's.. The one thing that jumped out to me was your filter. The tubes are a bit too big. They should be closer to .5 cm in diameter. Good luck!! Your well on your way.
  16. Hunter´s TD WIP

    If you check out trooperbay.com they have the correct size split revets at a fair price. That's where I got mine. Good luck with your build!
  17. Looking good bro!
  18. Thanks Urs. The mg parts are pricey and hard to get here in Canada too. We have some strict gun laws... Looking forward to your Bapty build. The paint work you did on the t-21 was excellent!
  19. Looks awesome! I wouldn't put any rust on it. The real parts that I used on my last build didn't have any.. Pre treating the wood to that dark colour is a great idea. Really nice work!
  20. *DONE* TD 93905 Requesting Deployment

    Looking really good! You'e done a great job. Good luck and we'll see you out in the sand soon!
  21. Looks good. You have some nice weathering and did a great job on the hand painted helmet details. A couple of things that stood out to me though.. The cover strips on the thighs should only reach down to the detail ridge, not over. And the dlt-19 has mechanics wire around the t-tracks, not plastic covered wire. Good luck with your application !
  22. bigwams #5 "Filter Pack" build (WIP)

    Looks great! Really nice work. The filter pack is my favorite.!
  23. Lol.. the smell goes away after a few days. Looks good!
  24. A little epoxy puddy or wood filler works well for filling in any air bubbles.
