    Duden15 Backpack Build (Pack 3)

    I do not think it was sanded. One can also recognize the "Tupperware" lettering on the "Stow n go" on Pack #4 & #5.

    Hi Grant, 1. These is an example for the pouches, you can use for the hip: If your shoulderpouch is brown, please dye it black and show it. 2: Please paint the seed trays, the two bottles and the giostyle bottle (under the radio) greyblue. 3: please post your Action-Foto timley. It should not delay approval, if you don´t post it - but do it timely. And: without Holster 4: Yes, you are right. But better is a pic with armor and all changes. Thanks Thomas

    Hello Grant, I will continue the review here. So, welcome and thank you for your interest in becoming an MEPD deployed officer! I will start from the beginning, that it remains a little clearer. But first, let me say, since your first application in 2017, some changes have been made in the CRLs. Since last year there has been a change in coloring and pouches. There are also changes since this year. However, your application will be treated according to the old rules because it was previously submitted. But, let us begin.

A little change, but closer to the film. RESULT ON ARMOR pending Backpack a. details: see comments b. weathering: check Last year it was decided that the color of the seed trays and bottles on the backpack should be blue-gray. Like RAL 7031. Please change that. RESULT ON BACKPACK pending Weapon a. details: check b. weathering: check RESULT ON WEAPONS CHECKED & CLEARED Grant, there are only two things left to change, then everything is done. Please change the pouch and paint the parts on the backpack bluegrey and all is done. I like your TD, it looks really great! So: head up, change quickly and welcome to the PO's . I know that it is annoying, but I have to take into account the changes of the last year. Note: please, post your new action pictures without holster. No holster on a TD! bigwam - MEPD Deployment Officer
  12. In addition to the CRLs, the following rules apply to Level 2 (deployed Police Officer). Moreover, it is up to the DOs to make additional decisions for or against acceptance. We also expect a PO candidate to be well informed about level 2, we suggest to read the threads here and ask questions if guidance is necessary. Helmet: is made out of fiberglass, ABS or HIPS It is white, with appropriate weathering and does not contain excessive stylization. It must match proportionally to what was seen on screen No FX Helemts are allowed! All visible screws have to be off the correct countersunk flathead type with a diameter of 7 mm and no washers are to be used. Flat green helmet lenses, made from lighting gel material, green welder´s mask face shield, acetate, or similiar product. correct Hovi-Mix Mic tips Helmet details must be hand painted. Decals, including decals, that emulate hand painting are not allowed. Three or four teeth on either side of the helmet frown may be cut out a mesh behind the frown is not allowed Backpack: Desert Backpack, styled after the ANH sandtrooper packs. they consist of two main boxes (aka Seed Trays), that are the approximate width of the backplate correct bend on frame Vacu-formed radio faceplates are not allowed Strict screen accuracy is required! While not every Sandtrooper in the film had a backpack, we feel that this level of commitment and overall design of the character should be attained. This also means taking no personal liberties such as LED lights, etc. For the color of the backpack parts, a greyish-blue color is recommended to meet the requirements of screen accuracy. Pauldron: Pauldron has no decals or patches and matches. The overally dimensions and look as seen on screen (not to thin) Shoulder Bells: Shoulder bells have no stickers or patches!! Shoulder Straps: no ribbed shoulder straps are present Shoulder straps shall be white elastic waistband material (4,5 - 5 cm wide) a sew-on snap be sewn to the bottom side of the elastic to attach the black elastic shoulder bell strapping must be present Chest Armor: Hardware from screen accurate bracket and strapping system must be visible in the bottom return edge of the chest plate. They may be functional or emulate the existence of the brackets. This refers to the 6 countersunk flathead screws with a distance of about 57 mm on the return edge of the chest. Armor: no FX-Armor is allowed! RotJ Armor which uses the overlap method to join the two halves of the armor is only allowed, if the applicant applies for the Special Edition Armor, otherwise for the ANH Sandtrooper, only the butt joint and cover strip method will be accepted. Hand Plates and Gloves: Hand plates are trapezoid shaped and made of latex or other flexible material. The gloves have to be black rubber chemical gloves. The plates are glued on the gloves. optional "cheese graters handplates" are also allowed Belt: Plastic plates covering the three rivets to attach the canvas belt are perfectly square Abdomen Armor: Armor side gaps are closed or nearly closed: No more than 1/2 inch (12,7 mm) gap on either side This is done by adding a shim (or shims) of a similar type and colour of material as the Abdomen and back Armor Shims fit flush, ideally they will be seamless to the Abdomen and/or Back Armor, resulting in a single seam between the two rather than extra seams where the shims are joined. Rivets on the left side of the Abdomen / Kidney Armor: A total of 6 brass split rivets with three on the Abdomen and three on the kidney. the rivets have a diameter of 8 mm and have to be painted white Rivets are equally spaced out along the lenth of the armor and abouth 10 mm from the edge. One snap on the top right hand side of the Abdomen Armor: Back of male side of snap shows on outside of Abdomen Armor Visible fasteners under lower Codpiece center area include one split rivet in the front: Fasteners need not be functional Posterior Armor (Buttplate): Visible fasteners under lower Buttpiece center includes two (or 3) male snaps in the back (snap part on the inside of the buttpiece). Fasteners need not be functional. Ammo Pouches: Black in color, made of canvas, leather or leahter-like German MP-40 style ammo pouches The standard configuration calls for a minimum of two pouches: one pouch on the left shoulder and one on the right hip (leather pouches only, either small Spanish pouch, medium Spanish pouch, large Spanish pouch or Stolla Wien, Canvas pouches on the hip-ammobelt aren´t allowed. Pouches may be replicas. a third worn on the opposite hip is allowed Option: If choosing to replicate a screen used configuration of equipment, the number of pouches may be altered Specific ammo pouches. Reproduction or original MP-40 ammo pouches are generally considered canon, made either canvas or leather. Other acceptable names/designs include Stolla Wien and the once common "Norwegian" green MP-40 pouches (shown - only aceptable for the shoulder pouch), made in leather. If using a green pouch for the shoulder, they should be dyed or painted black. No canvas pouches for the hips! Also the more commonly availible leather large French pouch is not allowed! Thigh Armor: the knee ammobelt has to be attached via two split rivets, pop rivets aren´t allowed or the little whole in the middle has to be filled with bondo. The ends of the knee ammobelt have to be of an angular shape at the top and rounded at the bottom. Please see reference pics. Note the correct width of the cover strips! Again the thigh armor has to be fully closed at the back and for ANH configurations, the two halves are joined using the butt joint and coverstrip method. Lower Leg Armor Note the correct width and screenaccurae kind of the cover stripes (as with all ANH configurations) and the closing direction. Weapons: E-11 Blaster: Folding stock (does not need to function) A real or replica ammo counter based of a Hengstler counter - shall be present. D-Ring mounted on the rear Sterling based blasters have the correct M-38 or M-40 style scope Two power cylinders on the magazine housing Scratch-built, resin cast, Hyperfirm rubber cast blasters shall have a total of 6 T-Tracks on blaster (leaving the lowest row on the magazine housing side uncovered). The T-Tracks have to be straight. No Rubies Rebels-Style blasters or Hasbro blasters are allowed. No ESB/RotJ greeblies are allowed on the blaster. If a Tunisian Bapty E-11 is the weapon of choice for PO already, no D-Ring is required. T-21 Light Repeating Blaster Rifle: A ribbed length of tubing shall be installed over the front of the gun barrel. A canvas, leather or nylon sling shall be attached. There is no sight present on the top where ribbing meets base but a bit of curled black cable. The blaster has to match the overall look of the WWI Lewis Gun. RT-97C Heavy Blaster Rifle Correct style scopes silver metal hose is present on the right hand side of barrel between the trigger and "saddle barrel" DLT-19 Heavy Blaster Rifle A DLT-19 is an MG-34 with T-Tracks on the barrel, ejection port cover added and a small disk on the left side. Also the right black wires on the T-Tracks to keep them in places as used in the movie We highly encourage the use of the Bapty version of the DLT-19, as the regular versions were used on the Death Star.
