  5. Chopper's TD Build Thread

    Hey man, welcome! I don’t know how the trooperbay stuff is but my pauldron is from Trooper 1 and its really nice. Pouches are from blaster8266 which are also really nice. For the neckseal I went with Darman and for the belt Rob Kittel. As for boots I went with TK Boots(heard they weren’t selling them right now but it looks like they are according to their site). As for the undersuit I just bought that from amazon, it was about $30 for shirt and pants. Hope this helps... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. New Users, introduce yourselves here!

    Welcome to the sandbox, there are 2 types of stormtroopers. There are Sandtroopers and TK’s who wish they were... Haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Shoulder pouch issue

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I ended up using E6000 to glue 2 black plastic strips to the back of the pouch. I think it solved the problem. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Shoulder pouch issue

    That’s a good idea, I thought about backing the pouch with cardboard, might try your method instead. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Shoulder pouch issue

    I initially did that based on your thread. The loops on the back of my pouches look bigger than yours so they’re not tight against the pack straps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Armor Harness/belt and boots question

    I glued a strip of nylon into the front of each thigh with a loop in the end, then pass a nylon belt from the army navy store through the loops, works great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Shoulder pouch issue

    Hey guys, this seems to be a chronic issue for me and it shouldn’t be. My canvas shoulder pouch is either getting partially stuck under my chest plate or folding over since it’s segmented. It’s attached to my pack strap by 2 Alice clips. Can’t seem to remedy this! Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

  14. Stormtroopers Beyond the armor

    I actually bought it for my son for Christmas but opened it to read, I couldn’t wait. You guys won’t be disappointed! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Stormtroopers Beyond the armor

    Just thought I’d post and see if anyone else has bought this book. I’d recommend it, it covers everything. There are several pages on sandtroopers with a blurb about the backpacks and some good photos. The canteen and canisters are definitely a battleship grey in the pics. Here’s a cool photo I’d never seen before.Worth picking up! It mentions the tie fighters were painted with a sea blue which has been since discontinued line of color from Pactra...Wonder if they used the same color for the backpacks...?
