  1. Woodman, you need to calm yourself down before you start throwing dirt around. I get that you've sunk a load of money in to this venture, but by slinging mud around you're only gonna make yourself look stupid. Im not one for arguing on forums, so I'll speak only in facts. I bought 2 complete radio kits from you, not 1 complete kit and 1 lot of resin parts. FACT. The radios are both at my house, where they have always been. FACT. I have never cast, nor would I know how to cast a mold of it. FACT. I am in no way related to Chris. FACT. I have no financial interest in Tosche Traders. FACT. I don't know Chris personally and have only interacted with him through the Tunisia76 page when he gave me assistance building my 1st pack. FACT. I bought 2 kits to go on 2 packs that I am making. I was lucky enough to find 2 genuine syphons, so I thought the radios would make these as accurate as possible. If anybody thinks buying 2 is strange, remember, everyone's financial position is different. $500 is a lot to some people and not so much to others. I can see why you're annoyed but I think that you need to take a step beckwards before you start making wild accusations. If you want, I'll send you a picture of the 2 radios once I get back from holidays. In the mean time, I'd appreciate you removing my name from your 1st post.
  2. Packs for swat

    Thanks Strider Im just waiting on a set of the new trays, then I can get started. I've got everything else I need, apart from spare time! Regarding the bars on the frame, I've got a couple of ideas that I need to check once I have the trays.
  3. Packs for swat

    Hey Strider Good point. So regarding Swat, as long as there are pictures to back up whatever you do, you should be fine? What would be great, is a 4K version of ANH! And someone having access to an original pack at Lucasfilm! If they still exist! Im just waiting on some seed trays so I should make a start in the next couple of weeks. It would be nice to get a yes or no on the bars on the frame though. Thanks
  4. Packs for swat

    And if you look at this photo before any filtering was added then the side of the Brexton box looks very different. Don't think I'm picking fault, because your pack is superb. I'm just saying that does SWAT require reference of actual movie screen caps or ones that have had filtering applied?

    Don't know. That photo has had an awful lot of filtering added to it Looks silver on here
  6. Packs for swat

    Thanks guys. Regarding the bracket, it's the one that holds the canteen to the seed tray. The metal one. If we're going from reference pics then I'll not paint it. I agree that we need some clearer guidelines though regarding the metal bars. I really don't want to start this build and change it half way through. From an accuracy point of view, I think we're nearly there. We can get the original siphons, casts of a Sonix, original frame, brexton boxes and super accurate trays. All we need to do is figure out what they used for the exhaust port and we're there!!!
  7. Striders Backpack build with found parts

    Great work, you must be very happy with the finished pack. BTW, do you have a measurement of the frame and the large pipe. Just wondering if the new trays meant cutting down more from the frame and adjusting the pipe to suit?
  8. Packs for swat

    Hi I'm looking at going for SWAT later on this year. I'm starting with a new pack but want to get it right first time. Ive noticed on Ginos and Striders recent builds that there are a few things that stand out and was wondering if these need to be done. 1) They have both left the red fabric parts on the frame. Do we need to keep these? 2) On the Brexton boxes, the left side is not fully painted. Should this be replicated or just painted black? I'm not sure if it's just a reflection 3) On the Gio Style bracket, one of them is painted, the other is not. From reference pics, it looks to be left unpainted. Any opinions? 4) Are we still ok to put the aluminium bars for the seed trays to fix to the frame? I'm not sure how durable tywraps are going to be Thanks, and great work on the builds Lee
  9. Sweet. Thanks for the welcome guys. And Felice, thanks for taking the time to review my kit. Gonna get a few troops behind me and see what needs adjusting now. And try for swat in the new year!
  10. Thanks for the kind words guys.
  11. Edit: figured out how to post pictures.

  14. Updated sized radio

    Yeah, they're great. I got one this week and have just started to paint it. Reasonably priced too
  15. 2016 is a new Bapty year...

    Thanks for posting this. I've just had a delivery from doopydoos so threads like this are invaluable to me. Just one quick question. I see you've stopped using green stuff and changed to apoxie sculpt. Is it better to work with? Thanks
