  1. Hey John, I don't think you're crazy, I can completely understand you mate! Go for it and have fun, looking forward to seeing pics of your progress.
  2. Hi Alex, welcome and thank you for your interest in becoming an MEPD-deployed officer. The MESP and the hunters are always in need of new recruits! Great work mate, you´ve already made those required changes even before I was able to write your review.

Side screws (ears): check j. Weathering: check *additional comments* Nice helmet Alex! But I have to admit that I have never before seen so many fans in a Sandtrooper lid, looks more like Vader´s helmet interior. I guess you will be one of the coolest dirty dudes out there.

Your gear looks great and you are a worthy addition to the ranks of the MEPD´s finest, be proud of yourself! I salute you mate… As I have no blue milk here at the moment, I´ll have a beer, Prost! You have successfully followed the guidelines in regards to the MEPD CRL and have met all requirements. 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! Cheers mate! Hausi - MEPD Deployment Officer

    TD9841 Tour of Duty (61 arrests)

    And another garrison/patrol with a mini-dirtydude, really cool!
  4. Hi Alex, your DLT is good to go, looks dusty as if it has seen quite a lot of sand. You will have to change the snap on the upper right side of your abdomen, what we need to see there is the back of a male snap. Furthermore the canvas on your ammobelt looks way too clean, spray some water on it to make it damp, then take an old wet towel, dab it into some black amd earth coloured acrylic paint and rub it carefully across the belt. I would suggest doing the same with the shoulder straps. Finally I will have to see a pic of the splitrivet in the codpiece. As soon as you've made these adjustments and posted new pics, I'll start your review. Minor adjustments only so go for it mate!
  5. Congrats mate! Your gear looks amazing
  6. Thanks for taking the time to start this comparison feature Thomas. Very interesting insight. Hopefully it will help us to find some more of these "unicorns".

    New Users, introduce yourselves here!

    Hi Shaun and Stefan, welcome to the MEPD! Always nice to see more people finding their way here and also nice to have another fellow German wanting to join the ranks. Have fun here guys at one of the best detachments!
  11. Your gear looks very good already mate! I also always start my weathering process with a few layers of black wash, after that comes the earth-coloured wash, so yours is a good base already. Way to go mate and good luck!

    Thrasher helmet

    Hey guys, me again with another helmet, this time I took a DA props/shed of glittering delight HDPE helmet and build it to be a "Move along" helmet which has seen quite a lot of action in the sandy dunes of Tatooine. So this is more like a fun side project, not completely on SWAT level. I have just emphasized the typical characteristic elements of this specific helmet, exaggerating the sleepy-eyes-look of this iconic helmet and enlarging the cracks where the original HDPE is showing. Because it looks quite worn-down, I have called it "The Thrasher", a tribute to my favourite Skateboard Mag. I´m even thinking about wearing it while skating once. It will definitely stand the thrashin´it would take, very sturdy helmets, those DA HDPE helmets. So here are some pics (many of them show the helmet next to my self-built RS helmet for reference): And finally dirty: I just love working on HDPE helmets, so much fun... And here´s a pic of me wearing it at the last event I participated in:

    Thrasher helmet

    It's not really worth to be mentioned, I know people who have way more helmets than I have. From time to time I sell one again to raise fund for new projects, I just love building helmets, especially HDPE buckets. Have a special one in the works right now.

    m4vrick's real Sonix Radio 75

    So cool to see the real thing Vincent, thanks for sharing, I'm happy for you! I don't want to know how many of them were actually just thrown away, now it seems people start to realize what this actually is. On the other hand they also realize that it's valuable to some and that they can ask for a serious amount of money, which is pretty sad.

    *DONE* TD-16473 Requesting Deployment

    Hey Darren, don't worry, I'm pretty sure he has received the message and will get back to you very soon, guess he's busy, keep in mind that we all work regulary jobs. And trust me, those pics are worth a little wait!
  16. Hi everyone, as some of you might have already suspected, I am following in the footsteps of my friend Bigwam/Thomas and have built my own Sterling-based Bapty E-11 with the back end and grip that Thomas has casted and believe me, he and his son Martin have done such an awesome job. Those parts just feel right ! I will not cover the building process as Thomas has already done that in his own thread... I am just going to show you the final product, here it is: The scope is a real vintage 1943 M38 scope, the Hengstler counter is also a real vintage counter with a genuine metal box. Those powercylinders are Fieldmarshall parts. Also: real wood in the mag. I also added a wash with some watered down Vallejo game colour Earth to emulate some sandy dust. And finally the picture of the holy trinity From top to bottom: Doopymod Bapty with real Henstler and real mag Imperial Warfighters´ rubber foam Bapty and the real deal Bapty at the bottom Cheers mates
  17. Congrats Bro! Your gear looks awesome, love the weathering, great job!

    Thrasher helmet

    Thank you! You are right, skating since 95 and still going. Well get that board and get out there before winter hits us hard mate! "Ban this" is great but I prefer "Future Primitive".
  19. Awesome, way to go mate!
  20. Eric, I am amazed how quickly you get those changes done, that´s the spirit, appreciate your attitude mate, here we go with the final round: Application Review: Part 3 Name: Eric H o Legion ID: TD-77520 Forum Name: Hoda Garrison: Star Garrison Helmet a.

Really cool DLT, a pity it is so hard getting these over here in Europe. Should you decide to go über-accurate, there is always the Bapty-DLT. RESULT ON WEAPON Checked & Cleared Eric, this was your final review! I really appreciate your enthusiasm and your attitude to get things done... and it was worth it, I think your gear looks stunning now, be proud of yourself! Time to celebrate with some blue milk …or beer or whatever you like! You have successfully followed the guidelines in regards to the MEPD CRL and have met all requirements. 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!

  21. Hi Eric, Thanks for hanging in there and doing those improvements so quickly, well done mate! Here we go with the next round: Application Review: Part 2 Name: Eric H o Legion ID: TD-77520 Forum Name: Hoda Garrison: Star 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: check g. Rank bar on ears: check h. Brow: check i.

RESULT ON ARMOR pending Backpack a. details: check b. weathering: check *additional comments* Looks much better and keeping the electronics hidden is a good idea. Keeping my fingers crossed for you that your plans for the sound system work out. RESULT ON BACKPACK Checked & Cleared Weapon a. details: see comments b. weathering: check *additional comments* As already mentioned, I am glad that you have a weapon mate and it looks good! The wire placement is spot on, the only thing I´m asking for is to see a picture of the charging handle. RESULT ON WEAPONS pending Eric, this was your second review! The changes are getting fewer and Not much left to do! I´m looking forward to seeing some new pics of your improved gear soon. Cheers mate Hausi - MEPD Deployment Officer
  22. Hey Eric, all is fine with your boots, no need to replace them. As far as the DLT is concerned, you are right, you will need the wire around the T-tracks. Everything else on that blaster is good to go. Man, am I glad to see that you are armed! So I´ll be waiting for you to finish the rest. Cheers mate
  23. Hi Eric, welcome and thank you for your interest in becoming an MEPD deployed officer! Man you are one dirty trooper, I like it! I am sorry that the forum security software won´t let you write your last name. Thanks for your tidy application, I have (almost) all the pictures I need. So let´s get your review started mate. Application Review: Part 1 Name: Eric H o Legion ID: TD-77520 Forum Name: Hoda Garrison: Star 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: check *additional comments* I cannot tell if your tubestripes are handpainted, please provide a close-up picture. Nice helmet, I appreciate that you´ve kept it screenaccurate leaving away the mesh behind the teeth, good work. 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: check f. forearms: check g. pauldron: check h. chest / back plate: check 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): see comments t. canvas belt: check u. pouches: check v. weathering: check *additional comments* Your armor suits you very well. The issue with the shoes addressed by Tiny seems to be part of the lighting playing tricks on our eyes and making it look like you are wearing some plateau soles. I do have to admit that the soles look quite thick but going through my reference pics I think that they used different shoes on set in Tunisia and Elstree Studios, thinner soles in Tunisia and thicker soles in London. To me it seems that the screws in the bottom return edge of your chest are a little too far apart but I´m going to let this pass. Shoulderstraps: please dirty them up, they seem to be completely white and form a stark contrast to the rest of your pretty dirty armor. Codpiece: instead of a snap, you use a rivet here: Knee ammo belt: the shape seems to be wrong, there shouldn´t be a curved shape at the top where the rivet is but a clean 90 degree angle: RESULT ON ARMOR pending Backpack a. details: see comments b. weathering: check *additional comments* A very cool pack! But as was pointed out before, the Tupperware Stow n Go box looks strange with that cable (just being curious: what kind of electronics do you have in there?) so please turn it around so it is less visible. I don´t like the bottle so much that is supposed to look like the Gio´Style bottle. As it isn´t that hard to find a better replacement and there is even someone who offers them on the forum, I would suggest getting a new one. But this is just a recommendation, the present one will work for PO. RESULT ON BACKPACK pending Weapon a. details: see comments b. weathering: see comments *additional comments* Seriously mate? No weapon??? Get a weapon quickly the Jawas are after you... to sell you one! RESULT ON WEAPONS pending Eric, this was your first review! Keep up the good work, those are some easy changes… and for god´s sake, get a weapon! I´m looking forward to seeing some new pics of your improved gear soon.
