  1. Hi Greg, thank you for your interest in becoming an MEPD deployed officer. I can only agree with Tiny, this is really what an application should look like, nice and tidy and some good high-resolution pics. Great work already! Don´t worry about the greenscreen playing tricks on your weathering, all is fine. And here we go with your review: Application Review: Part 1 Name: Greg Bell Legion ID: TD-34575 Forum Name: wook1138 Garrison: Badlands Helmet a. Green lenses: check b.

It definitely looks amazing, awesome paintjob and weathering. RESULT ON WEAPON Checked & Cleared Greg, this was your first and final review, I really appreciate the effort you have put into creating this meticulous application as well as your armor, this rocks mate. You have successfully followed the guidelines in regards to the MEPD CRL and have met the requirements, be proud of yourself. Please send the pic you want to use to Luis (Sandman Tigui) and we'll get you squared away. We will have your updated information uploaded into the MEPD system very soon.

    You look good mate, seems that the younglings think the same!
  3. Hi Greg, great to see your application here! Could you please add a pic of your back without the pack? Then I will start your review asap.

    Boots won't fit under armor

    Which would be screen accurate, so go for it!
  5. This is nothing short of amazing, well done.
  6. Hi Bones, That looks really cool mate! Having the original bracket strapping is a nice thing but to me it's more important that it looks right from the outside and your chest and abdomen should definitely be closer together, so I would suggest using elastic and glue in some snaps. The hip ammobelt should be positioned a little lower. The diamond shaped sniper knee seems to be a little too thick, sand it down some more. Maybe you could also try to push down the shins a little further to allow you a wider range of movement at the knees. Cheers mate

    Shoulder Pauldron Coffee Stain Size?

    Hey mate, we assume that this so-called coffee spot is actually some left over glue/sticker residue from a sticker that was on the motoX chest protector. There isn't an exact size, it just has to look right and not too solid.

I would still suggest that you try to get a real Stow n Go box though. And definitely get those screw heads painted. RESULT ON BACKPACK Checked & Cleared Weapon a. details: check b. weathering: check *additional comments* A really nice looking blaster but I guess it´s pretty heavy…is it? RESULT ON WEAPON Checked & Cleared Andreas, this was your second review, I really appreciate your enthusiasm and your attitude to get things done... and it was worth it, I think your gear looks even better now than it already did before, congrats mate, well-deserved! Knowing that you are really into working on Bobas, especially painting them, I assume you are all about making your gear as screen accurate as possible and because of that I´m pretty sure to see those changes as suggested by my fellow dirty dudes and myself pretty soon. Has somebody said SWAT?? For the next step you will need some new weapons but adding a wooden buttstock to a DLT will help to save some weigth and make trooping so much more comfortable. For now I can just say: You have successfully followed the guidelines in regards to the MEPD CRL and have met the requirements, be proud of yourself. Please send the pic you want to use to Luis (Sandman Tigui) and we'll get you squared away. We will have your updated information uploaded into the MEPD system very soon. Congratulations on becoming a Deployed Officer of the MEPD! Now please report to the Mos Eisley Mess hall where you'll serve the troopers until the next newbie gets cleared. Cheers mate!

  9. Following in the footsteps of Jcalus (Jon) and Bigwam (Thomas), I wanted to have my own Bapty DLT built using original parts. I was lucky to source an original MG 34 cooling jacket, bipod and flashhider. I´ve build my own wooden back part on my first Bapty DLT, but unfortunately was too busy last month to do that again (as it is quite a lot of work and very messy) ...fortunately I have a good friend who has already quite a lot of experience building these part and he has again done a terrific job on mine, couldn´t be happier, thanks a lot, Martin (Heroma)! I have some replica grips from Latvia too, but dropped one of them and a part broke off... but as it only adds to the used look of the Bapty, I didn´t bother too much and used it anyway. As this build actually uses the same approach as those by Jon and Thomas, I will not include any pics of the building process but only of the finished Blaster. So this is what it is supposed to look like: And here it is: Also added the little wire around the triggerguard: original: mine:
  10. Oh and I forgot, the lunch box you have is okay for PO but you were asking for the screen used item´s name: it´s a tupperware "stow n go" box:
  11. Hey Andi, sorry for replying so late on the subject of your upgraded pack but the MEPD DOs were out there trooping (Speyer ) I appreciate it that you are going for accuracy, great work so far mate, your pack is getting better and better! As Jcalus has already said, we all here at the MEPD are aiming for accuracy and I really like it that you have realigned the parts on your pack but we are also keeping in mind that this is not SWAT yet, for SWAT you would also need to build a new radio with a leather/pleather surround and all the right sockets and the mounts for the carrying strap but.... for PO your pack is almost good to go, the only change I´m asking for has already been mentioned by Jcalus too: You will have to cut off the nub on the dome of the syphon where I have drawn the red line. That´s all mate.

    Hi Arturo, let me help out here, to post the pictures directly in this thread, you need a picture host that allows it. I for example use flickr.com to upload my pictures. As soon as they are uploaded I have to click on the small preview picture to enlarge it, then I can click the right button on my mouse and copy it in the tread. I hope it works looking forward to seeing your pics here

    Greetings from Mimban

    Hi mate, have to admit that I know little about the Mimban Trooper besides having seen it in Solo but that looks amazing and suits you very well. Welcome to the MEPD, with that dirty armor and pack you definitely belong here! Is that Jimiroquai's (don't know if I have spelled that correctly) kit?
  14. Good job mate, your weathering looks very natural, I'm happy with it! Now finish that pack of yours and we're good to go!

    TD 99665 TheSwede`s Tour of Duty (I arrest)

    Yeah, congrats on your first troop mate! Some great pictures!
  16. Amazing! Where the heck did you find that, Andi? I know that there's an auction for one on fleabay right now but the seller wants at least 90 pounds. You don't have to completely revise your weathering, just give it a wash with some light earth color. Nothing else to change on your armor.
  17. Although I still haven´t checked the weight of this thing, I can tell you that it´s pretty heavy as I took it for a two day troop. It was a good feeling! But now my arms are aching. Nice thing is to know that it´s almost indestructible, no worries. I´m the second trooper from the left. Have to admit that I had to take some brakes and just put it on the ground, still looks cool though
  18. Hi Andi, That´s already looking really good. The gaps between the kidney and ab are gone. the bluish grey colour on the seedtrays and bottles of your pack looks great now, good job. But what have you changed on the syphon? It´s still the same syphon which isn´t appovable. These rings are wrong: the other thing which isn´t suitable is the bottom end where the blue bottle is attached. Have a look, this is what the the one that was used looks like, this is a photo of my own pack and I have the syphon from RWA Creations: it´s a replica part: If you are lucky, you might even find the original part which was a Shires UP 100 or 90 Syphon but those are very rare and expensive nowadays. The other thing is that to me it looks like you haven´t changed anything about your weathering, some of your armour parts (e.g. the faceplate of your helmet and the legs) still look too white in between the occasional patches of dirt.
  19. Well done Andi, great work with the tubestripes, they're spot on now! The DLT is also good to go, btw who's the maker of that blaster?

    Great work mate. I also used two elastic rubber bands on my T21 build. Nice collection! When will you be adding some Bapty variants to it?
  22. Hey Andreas, time to get your review started: Application Review: Part 1 Name: Andreas Koch Legion ID: TD- 29185 Forum Name: Andi85 Garrison: German Garrison Helmet a. Green lenses: check b. Paint color of traps / tears: check c. Correct number of teeth: check d. Mic tips: check e. Vocoder color: check f. Tube stripes: see comments g. Rank bar on ears: check h. Brow: check i. Side screws (ears): check j. Weathering: see comments *additional comments* Nice helmet, although the way you have achieved the high brow look by cutting the dome instead of adjusting the angle of the faceplate is an unusual approach. The tubestripes in general but especially on the the helmets left side (from the wearers perspective) are situated too low. please move them up to the blue line: As far as your weathering is concerned, the contrast between the shiny white areas and the dirt seems to stand out a little too much for my liking, those white areas still look too clean and you have to add some basic light weathering. I would recommend giving it a wash with some watered down acrylics, black first and then some sand/earth colour, dab most of it off again using e.g. a paper towel before it dries. RESULT ON HELMET pending Armor details a. elastic straps shoulders: see comments b. neck seal: check c. black undersuit: check d. shoulder bells: check e. biceps: see comments f. forearms: see comments g. pauldron: check h. chest / back plate: see comments i. kidney / butt plate: check j. ab plate / side rivets / cod: see comments k. strapping system: check l. thighs: check m. shins / calves: check n. sniper plate: check o. boots: check p. gloves: check q. hand plates / guards: check r. ammo belt (waist): check s. ammo belt (right knee): check t. canvas belt: check u. pouches: see comments v. weathering: see comments *additional comments* Your armor was nicely built and suits you well but there are a few issues: 1. You seem to be a big guy with broad shoulders, that is the reason why there is a gap between the chest and the ab , you have to get rid of that gap, I would suggest you do that by shortening the strapping that connects the chest and the ab and to use longer white elastic shoulderstraps. 2. & 3. The gap between the biceps and the forearms is too big, but that should be an easy fix: pull the forearms closer to the biceps and attach them to it using elastic, that way it will probably also give you more freedom of movement in your wrists. If you change the shoulderstraps, you will also have to change the snaps you have used to sew-on snaps. The top of the shoulderstrap is supposed to look like this: The gap on the side between kidney and ab is too big, try to close the canvas belt properly (but don´t use too much force, that might crack your kidney), if it doesn´t work that way, I´m afraid you will have to shim the kidney/add additional ABS plates. Please show me a picture of the other side of your cod rivet: You need a shoulder pouch, either the typical canvas MP 40 or some leather Stolla Wien-like pouch. Weathering: The same that I have said about your helmet weathering can also be applied to the weathering of your armor, it´s too white and shiny, use the same procedure as suggested for the helmet to add some basic dirtiness to it. When taking new pictures after having done these adjustments, please also add a pic of your back without a pack. RESULT ON ARMOR pending Backpack a. details: see comments b. weathering: see comments *additional comments* You will have to get a different syphon as yours is too far off what was seen on screen. There are some accurate and reasonably priced replicas out there. Your pack is too blue, I know that in the CRL it says bluish grey but yours seems to be rather baby blue, please change that, the colour being commonly agreed on being the most accurate is RAL 7031 in a satin finish. RESULT ON BACKPACK pending Weapon a. details: see comments b. weathering: see comments *additional comments* Please show me a picture of the disc greeblie on your grip. And as your blaster looks still factory fresh, give it a weathering to give it a well-used and battle worn look… go hunt some Jawas with it RESULT ON WEAPON pending Andreas, this was your first review, here at the MEPD we need some more big and menacing officers so keep up the good work, those changes shouldn´t be too difficult for you, you have already done a good job. I´m looking forward to seeing some new pics of your improved gear soon. Cheers mate Hausi - MEPD Deployment Officer
  23. Hi Andreas, welcome and thank you for your interest in becoming one of Mos Eisley´s finest. Looking pretty good but the pictures are way too grainy and I cannot identify the details, e.g. the sew-on snaps on your shoulderstraps, please upload some higher resolution images. I don´t know which picture hosting site your using (I for one am using flickr) but with most of them you shouldn´t upload the preview picture but click on the pic to enlarge it and then copy it to your application. Hope it works out and I am looking forward to seeing some new pics. Cheers mate.

    Greg, your blaster looks amazing, very well done. I´ve been discussing the corrugated tubing with Bigwam and after studying several reference pics, we are pretty sure, that they used some sort of fuel line or rubber tube, in the following pic, you can see that the end of the tube is visible: However, we decided that it isn´t absolutely clear and in your case, the corrugated tubing that you have used matches the look on screen quite well and the overall look of your blaster is right, that´s why we give your T-21 the green light for SWAT. This being said, it doesn´t mean that corrugated tubing will be approvable in general, we still highly recommend the use of some kind of rubber tube or pipe. It will always depend on the look of the blaster.
