    Sorry the pack got a little beat up during shipment. I appreciate the feedback on the pack. I did just start making the mortar tube a little shorter. Is there really some sort of disc on top of the lab pipe? I am starting to get a constant shipment of actual canteens from Vincent that I am using on the packs. It just takes a while for them to be shipped to me. As for the end caps I am finally getting around to making a mold so I can vacform them from ABS . Your armor looks great. I have almost finished mine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Crookknight's Sandtrooper Armor and Pack Build Thread

    The bucket I show in the previous picture is not the one I will be using. I just put it on there until I finish the correct one. In regards to the cover strip on the left thigh, I have fixed it (i think) and the picture is below. I am currently adding the side shims since I am not 165 lbs....more like 185 lbs. Once I add the ABS paste and smooth out, I will post pictures for comments. Want to make sure it looks right. Corrected left thigh cover strip.

    Crookknight's Sandtrooper Armor and Pack Build Thread

    I am having to add 1" shims on each side of the backplate in order to close the gap on the sides. This week, I will use acetone in order to make the ABS paste and add the shims. Goal is to make it seamless. On another note, what is the best method to add the weathering to the armor? I have not researched this yet.

    Here is a quick photo of the armor on one of my mannequins. I am almost to the point where I will take photos of each piece.

    Thanks for the heads up on the pictures. I am going to post new ones.

    I have made a lot of progress and will be posting pictures soon. I have been building so many packs that I have not had much time. One quick question though, what is the best way to attach the shoulder ammo pouch to the shoulder? (attach it to the strap of the backpack, or to the orange pauldron). Any ideas would be very helpful. Thank you.

    You are welcome. I can't wait to finally submit for my initial approval as a TD. Just finishing my new armor, now.

    I think I have found a karrimor frame. If I do get it, I will send it to you at no cost. I know you are not demanding it, but it is the right thing to do.

    @TheSwede I will see what I can come up with for the frame. It is custom aluminum and the only way to connect the pieces is with the elbows. I have used CPVC in the past, the only issue is it tends to break over time. I will search for more Karrimor frames, but I have had little to no luck finding them in the last 6 months. If you know of anyone that sells them or a good place to get them, please let me know. I usually try to use Ebay.Uk. I will gladly send you a CPVC or Karrimor frame (If I can find one) at no charge to use for your SWAT application.

    I have made notes of your improvements and will implement on similar packs. Thanks. Looks great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Type 4 Backpack

    I am building the Sandtrooper trooper type 4 backpack for someone. Does anyone have any good reference pictures or pictures of a completed one? I wanted to confirm the details and I only have some very rough old photos. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
