  1. I almost forgot to include some pics of some lab-pipe-details I have added, solely based on what I personally believe to see in my reference pictures: After doing all the weathering, it was also time to get some other stuff done, e.g.protecting my armor as well as the pack from being damaged or scratched. The approach I took was EVA foam mats (actually meant for yoga classes) and attach them to the back of my seedtrays, by doing this, I could also hide the rather large openings. The foam mats are hidden behind the red canvas back support straps.
  2. Speyer 22, what a great weekend meeting so many friends. I´ll take the liberty of including some Dengar pics too... he is basically a Sandtrooper and I was carrying the Bapty DLT too. Found Skeletor Found some droid (pink: must be wrong) Some random photo, everybody noticed that a picture was taken, except for myself. Dengar, chilling with Tusken Raiders The infamous "soundguy" and Willrow
  3. Seems like you are in doubt if that is really the right droid... looks a wee bit pink. As always, it was a lot of fun to be trooping with you my friend.

  5. No need to mess with the closures or flaps, it's okay. Your next move will be to be patient, I'm trooping this weekend and am going to write your final review next week.
  6. Well, to be honest, it doesn't really resemble the Stolla Wien pouch as the proportions are slightly wrong but it's okay, so you can also tick that off.
  7. I had attached all these parts to the seed trays but I hadn´t attached the seed trays to the frame as weathering the parts individually would give me a better, more natural result. So next up was getting all of it dirty. I used different washes for it, first one was a mixture of black and brown (burt umber) acrylics with wather, second round was Vallejo model colour earth, both mixt with water, applied with a brush and then almost immediately dabbed off again using paper towels. Besides the Ghostbusters Ecto-Goggles, you can also see that I decided to use a canvas pouch for the shoulder, while with this particular pack, a leather "Stolla Wien" would be the right choice but I didn´t want to use my original one so I am waiting for a friend who has his already painted/dyed black and has agreed to sell it to me. Would have been a pity to paint this original one:
  8. The filter gave me a hard time. I tried to scratchbuild it but attaching/gluing rubber hoses to a tube with the right diameter proved to be very difficult, especially as rubber hose simply doesn´t like to be straight. So I called a friend with a 3D-printer to print me one... which was then again heavily modified. I cut out a lot of the interior structure, first and foremost as I think that there wasn´t any when looking at screen caps and secondly as it saves weight. I really think that filter doesn´t have the details that many people have on theirs at the top and bottom. So this was the filter as it came fresh from the printer: But I simply don´t see that "bulge-detail" at the top or bottom: So this is what it looked like after me modifying it: I am also somehow convinced that this filter might have been red especially when compared to the black parts surrounding it... if it was some kind of automotive performance air filter, that whould make sense... Anyhow, I decided to paint it red and then give it some dusted coats of black, here it is already attached to the upper seed tray: I do have to admit that I think the proportions don´t look completely correct, actually I think the filter should be bigger that mine is.
  9. This was the first time I used a new strategy to attach the seed trays to the frame: as with my packs before, I used aluminium strips but this time I have bent them on both ends and riveted them to the frame from the inside, so those aluminium strips wouldn´t really be visible any longer as soon as the trays are attached. In the following picture I had already painted the frame and attached the red back support straps to check fitment:
  10. This is the first time I have bought a 3D-printed radio kit. I am still not such a big friend of 3D-printed stuff but it was convenient. It´s printed in black PETG and the quality was okay, still a lot of work to get rid of the most prominent of the print lines. I could probably have put a lot more work into it, filling sanding and repeat but many of those little flaws would be partly hidden by paint and weathering at the end. Here are some pics. The strap holders weren´t accurate at all, that´s why I modified them. Cut out a lense from clear acrylic plastic cardboard for the interior of the pleather surround cut out of a box of beer. Cheers. I have also cut holes in the trays and the radio, again for both, light weight and ease of installation. I then added all necessary details like the sockets, the feet, the antenna, stickers and so on, this is what it looked like before weathering and being attached to the tray: On the backside you can see the hole but I actually covered everything that was visible with more pleather and punched holes in it to emulate the backside of a real Sonix radio. And here it is compared to my SonixWorld radio which was cast from a real Sonix: I forgot to take pictures of painting and attaching the Tupperware Stow´n Go but this was the pack with almost all parts being attached. I still had to paint the Karrimor frame.
  11. Used a Lionstar for the canteen, took it apart and got rid of all the insulation material inside, which is a very messy job. This way it´s lighter and allows easy acces for the hardware to be attached.
  12. After taking a closer look at the side greeblie, how it looks in proportion to the seed trays and comparing it to my reference pictures, I knew, I would have to shorten it. please excuse my feet in flip flops in the picture I also added some wires to match what can be seen in the reference:
  13. Hi everyone, I really like the layout of pack#5 with the Tupperware Stow´n Go box, the little greeblie on the right side and the overall look of this pack, so I have built myself one. You can find more information about this pack in the following thread to which I have just added some more useful reference pictures: So I gathered all necessary ingredients to get this project started On the screenused pack there is a Shires UP90, but I have come to own a genuine Shires UP85 courtesy of a friend who was able to purchase a bunch of Syphons. When compared to my fake Sonix (it´s a radio I have built using a Sonixworld kit as the base but even incorporated a battery compartment and such - however, I wasn´t planning to use it for this build) one can see that it is slightly too short. I was aiming for accuracy with this build but at the same time I was also looking forward to using a real Shires Syphon on a pack, so it´s like a compromise. The frame is a genuine Karrimor which I cut down and bent to match the shape seen on screen. Trays were purchased from RWA Creations. I also added a different endcap to match those from the movie.
  14. Here are some more pictures that I found useful when building my pack, many show the pack´s right side and the greeblie. Cheers
