  1. M38 scope is ordered. I hope it gets here sooner rather than later. I'm really looking forward to having that deployment status. Looks like I have a few options for paint. I just wanted to make sure, is this still one of the most 'up to date' solutions for RAL 7031? Thanks!
  2. Thank you sir! I really appreciate the kind words and encouragement!
  3. I made inserts out of EVA foam. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. If anyone has tips on weathering and let me know. I've got a few extra if anyone needs one.
  4. I got 4 of them. I plan to use the bottom one as its a less green as the others. Looks like the front has noticeable printing on it. I assume everyone is putting the font to there chest to hide the printing, unless there is a technical for removing it. I understand now that the light stitching on the bottom is for different magazine types and is designs for easy removal.

  6. What about this line? I'm assuming it's a simple stitching that you remove on yours, or is it only on the back and the front is plain?
  7. Weathering: This is what I had in mind to create the mud effect. The one in the middle looks like a good match, then here and there a small amount of brown (on the left) to make it less uniform. At first I was thinking I should try to thicken it but to be honest now I'm not so sure. I found this technique online of boiling cornstarch in water and adding it to acrylic paint to thicken it. Let me know what you guy think.
  8. So has this been confirmed as the bandoliers from the film? I was going to make mine from scratch then I saw that they a pretty cheap, if its the correct ones. To be honest I would only wear it for the approval.
  9. Agreed Lol, its the trekkies that aren't allowed to have wrinkles. I just don't want too may wrinkles ya know.
  10. First attempt. They're much more wrinkles now which I'm not really sure how to get out, maybe I'll just leave them in As you can see, one side took the bye better than the other The leather circles shrink a little bit and got hard from the boiling water which I should have expected because I've dyef ammo pouches before and had the same issue. I don't think it's a big deal though as long as they don't fall apart.
  11. Oh, I see it now. Thank you very much! Is that after dying it four time? It still looks green. You used the dye for natural fabrics though right? Thank you for the info. I would have tried it once and thought it wouldn't work or that I did something wrong. Now I know to just keep at it.
  12. I just put some water on it and it seems to be water repellent. I also saturated a small area and it did soak up the water. Ill give it a try with the RIT Black hopefully this weekend. Or do you think I should try to pretreat it with something?

  14. So it took a little less than a month for shipping from Russia to get this. I would like to make this trooper eventually and have many questions. First off, this thing is much bigger (and heavier) than I thought it would be. Its about 65" x 65". When I first tried it on I noticed it drags the ground. Then I thought, there must be a way to make it shorter and noticed that I can attach the bottom to the middle like so. Which makes me believe thats the inside so its hidden away. Leaving the top to hang down like a hood. Second, how is this thing supposed to sit? I'm pretty sure I figured out how it attaches, tied to my sholder straps. The reference photos I have dont really show too may details/ stitching etc. Its hard to tell what side to wear it on. Anyone have any reference photos from the back without a backpack on? My assumption is that it's made of wool so I'm not exactly sure how I want to dye it. This is what I have on hand at the moment so I may have to go out and buy another black RIT for natural Fabrics. Let me know what you use to dye yours. My next question is, what are we using for weathering/mud? Acrylic paints, spray paints or maybe something thicker?
  15. Yes! Everything has been submitted, just waiting for it to go live any day now.
