  1. I made a PDF printed 36 x 24 in (Full scale on 2 sheets) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1T0pH-HW3mv8c1Sp9mO8x4-Z-cgBUgLDR/view?usp=sharing The detail pages. I'm not sure when I downloaded them but it was before the watermarks. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1s82u8cMdPC9AzwR4ZjvkFIvOUVKvLX7O/view?usp=sharing Let me know if the Google Drive links don't work.
  2. I'm trying to find out where I could find some MEPD Gear, Patches, or if the next run of Racing shirts is happening. I know I can get a few things from Trooperbay. Just trying to represent the MEPD. With there being only 3-4 Sandies in my local Squad so I need to Rep that much harder. Thanks for any help. Racing Shirt? Cards? Patches? MEPD Shirts? Hats?

  4. It will mostly be used in the ab and chest connections. I have snaps handy because I planned on going that route to begin with so maybe a combination of both. I've heard the velcro makes for a fast suit up but I'm sure it's relative.
  5. O Sandy Ones... Is Velcro an acceptable way to strap my armor or will I have to use snaps for future possible Levels of approval? I realize that certain snaps and rivets need to be seen (Side rivets, butt plate snaps, ab to chest screws.) But I can't seem to find anything that says I can't use Velcro instead of a snap and elastic or webbing method for PO approval. Thanks for the help in advance.
  6. After much too long just sitting around being lazy I've finally decided to assemble my kit. I've set myself a deadline of having it complete by Halloween. More pics to follow. I almost have all of the armor for the shins, thighs, biceps, and forearms ready for final adjustments and gluing. I'll have to undersuit up to check the thigh armor before finally gluing the backs. I also still have a pretty good amount of return edge to take care of before I can do this.

  7. I wasn't sure on the spacing for the stripes thank you, I'll work on redoing them. I'm aiming for the "Move along" and I'l like to be PO at some point so getting it right the first time will save me rework in the end. I might also have to redo the ears to make more tube space to fit more stripes. Thank you both for the feed back. I'll work on it and post more pics.
  8. So I ordered and received an AM kit a few months ago, then I opened the BBB like everyone else does, then I shut it and started to re-read everything that I had already been over quite a few times. I decided to start with the bucket I figured if I can get that together the rest has to be easier. So here is my first installment of pics. I'll try to keep the work area cleaner next time. I know I need to probably raise the brow a bit more and I still have to install the mic tips.
  9. What about Montana Cans the spray paint is found all over the world. If the command staff found a color by them everyone would be able to find it. http://www.montanacolors.com/webapp/spray?id=58
  10. Hey Everyone, my name is Nathan, I'm 29. I've been on the other forums since 2013 I think. Had the money saved for a TK, but had to spend it marring my wife. Armor got put on hold for a few years. I live in FL and would be apart of Squad 7. Decided to go TD because here in Florida there is already sand everywhere, so it seems only fitting to be a Sandtrooper. I'm a BIM Specialist by trade, I can model and have access to two 3D printers which will hopefully make the blaster builds a little easier. The plan is to have my Armor ready for my 30th birthday in October. A play on the whole Dirty 30 thing. Trooper Z
