  3. Bapty from a real Sterling project

    It will come Scott. It’ll pop up in eBay soon enough. Interesting that the M19s suddenly popped up more than the M38s these past few weeks tho... patience my friend
  4. NEW Police Officer Deployed Card Background

    Looks bad *** Luis !
  5. m4vrick Backpack Build *DONE*

    Why.. well, thank you sir. It’s sturdy ..
  6. OK time is ripe for another project, in this case, the backpack. Took some time to assemble everything, especially in this part of the world. But everything is finally in place. I have to thank @Strider a lot because i did bombard him with tons of questions and he has been very patient to provide me all the necessary info. Backpack i will emulate here is the "Move along" #3 trooper's backpack. Warning: Not for the faint of heart: A lot of bondos, not pretty by sight (at least not yet), as this is pure DIYs and DIYs are not always pretty. The Frame (vintage karrimor). Measured it at 0.774 in diameter. I had to source the red canvas as what i got was definitely not red. Pre fitting, accurate seedtrays are i believe thanks to @Strider. Who had shared with the sandy community close-to-screen accurate seedtrays. (pardon the mess, i know) Attached the red fabric onto it, painted the frame black: Gio Style Canteen. Closely followed @Airborne Trooper on the proper way to mod the canteen. Again, a lot of bondos. As for the top, i used a 1/2" hose pipe, inserted a marker (fit nicely) to properly shape it nice and straight. SHORT COMMERCIAL BREAK: if you ever need a close match to the Giostyle canteen, look no further, i introduce to you its brother: Lionstar canteen. Made in Indonesia, and i happen to supply them. (1:1 scale) BACK: Ammo shells (this will be irregular in shape). Coloring the seedtrays: RAL7031 is what i use. I must admit, i didn't expect to find that specific of a color in this part of the world. But here it is: RAL7031, Jotun brand. Sonix Radio, i got from @woodman . Modded a lot of stuff on the inside, as i want it to open and close (yet sturdy). Electronic chatter will be installed in the future. WARNING: ugly image to follow. Bear with me please Siphon, i will use a vintage Shires siphon. It IS a Shires' siphon; not saying this is THE one, it should be very similar to what the screen used (no conclusive evidence & info on how many variations Shires produced their siphons then). But judging from their shape & length, this should be "close to accurate". Left: Shires Siphon UP90, Right: Gordon's Last for now, my favorite, the water bottles. I sourced a lot of bottles but finally managed to settle on one type: 1500ml Loreal Shampoo. width should be +/- 9.5 cm . Mine: 9.6cm The height of the bottles, from end of the plunger, to the bottom of the bottles should be pretty near to +/- 20cm (might be shorter). I will have this cut to see how it'll match screen accurate wise. That's all for now. Constructive feedbacks are always welcomed. I hope i can wrap this up by the end of this week. Will post more. Thanks for watching.
  7. Bought this off a former Legionnaire...

    Value is all about expectations. With a few mods, it would be OK for PO. The canisters for one, like @lovemonkey mentioned. Vitamin or shampoo bottle would do.
  8. Photobucket Nightmare Ends!

    For now, i'm comfortable with picload. I'll see what they'll offer...
  9. Another update to the armor: First, the skull mark on the chest. Wasn't happy how its right eye (left on viewer's point of view) is higher than the left. Eye adjustment it is. The mystery line is now further extended to the center. Might add a little less pronounced dirt onto these lines... Another revision to the right shoulder bell, something i previously wasn't quite happy about. From what i make, you can almost see another skull mark there. Thank you all, constructive criticisms welcomed. Updates to the backpack coming soon. Salute troopers!
  10. Name: Vincent WilliamLegion ID #: TD-17778Call sign: m4vrickGarrison: Garuda Garrison IndonesiaTrooper Emulated: Cantina Captain Hello all, this be my SWAT submission. Please bear with me. 2) Post at least two, nice sized, clear photos of you in your armor at various angles. These photos will be used, in part, to determine if your weathering is satisfactory. Move along... move along Member must currently be deployed as an MEPD Police Officer to be considered. - yes Weathering must be appropriate to screen used armor. Too little or too much weathering will not be allowed. - yes Pack, pauldron, and weapon combinations must match a specific trooper a seen on screen. - yes Pauldron, canvas belt, MP40 pouches: 3. Side pictures & some weathering shots: That's not the middle... i swear... Removed the decals on the Sonix radio Right bell weathering: Back weathering: Left bicep weathering: 4. Chest weathering: Chest weathering reference: 3. Bucket & some references: Side bucket reference: 4. Backpack m4vrick backpack research & build: Additions: Adjusted the shotgun shells on the backpack Revised the weathering on the brexton box. Weathering should be on the bottom, not on the sides. 5.

Move along... move along...
  11. Bapty from a real Sterling project

    Hey man, A real hengstler counter & real M38 just got sold 350€. And this was last week. Are you part of the "Star Wars Blaster Build Group" fb group? Sometimes people post vintage items for sale there. Check it out.
  12. Weathering Feedback Appreciated

    Weathering is a matter of taste. @pandatrooper provided the "how" guide that a lot of us sandies follow. Doesn't mean you have to always follow that; and as to how much... the generally accepted notion here is: "less is more". I say: Keep on doing what you're doing. Looks good!
  13. Bapty from a real Sterling project

    Awesome welding! You did a good job there. Envy you too...i will never be able to bring in a deactivated sterling to this part of the world.
  14. deployment pics

    Hi Warren, did you try to upload pics to the forum? Because it just won’t allow you. All the pics you see here are picture links from online storage sites such as picload.org please check them out. Hope this helps
  15. Finally John... grats ! Another SWAT !
  16. Wook's Docking Bay 94 Captain Build (AP)

    You did very well on these paint drips. I just noticed this thread. And will be following with great interest ! Go on Greg, you have our support!
  17. Dear lord... the muscles

    I feel all of you. I use an insole inside my boots. The center of gravity for me somehow pin down along the insoles, hurting my legs too. My garrison's troops would be in shifts tho. We make sure no one troops more than an hour. In doing marches, i will always tell whoever usually is in front most (usually kylo ren) to SLOW DOWN.
  18. Great application. Should be few easy fixes. Hang in there !
  19. TD-82573 "Airborne Trooper" Tour of Duty, 21 Arrests

    Super awesome... be sure to have it framed
  20. *DONE* TD-92698 Requesting Deployment

    Grats again Scott ! Well done !
  21. Henselmonster Backpack Build

    The one on the right looks closer John. You don’t like shampoo bottles ? Lol
  22. My new RWA seed trays

    I think he meant this Joe:
  23. Shoutout for Urs... you're totally spot on mate. I would've missed the vac-formed faceplate. For Stephen, you got this man... hang in there. Just few easy fixes !
  24. *DONE* TD-92698 Requesting Deployment

    interesting that his came with only one. Any one knows what kind of snaps RS use? I can understand Scott would want a "pretty similar" kind of snaps he has. I have already msged @ross8008 on this.
  25. First build - Weathering my Sandtrooper

    I like it better. Great job. Weathering is always a personal preference; but echoing the boss: “less is more” (echooo... echooo... echooo...).
