  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. TD 1636 Requesting Deployment

  8. TD-89161 Requesting Deployment

    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 !
  9. *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.
  10. 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...).
  11. *DONE* TD-92698 Requesting Deployment

    Hi Scott.. some of the pointers our friends here had given will make you look even better. Wish you had taken the pictures with your 2 mp40 pouches though although not required for PO. Stand by for your review mate. Enjoy...
  12. Sand Trooper pack parts

    too kind @RoCKo thanks for the recommendation sir !
  13. 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.
  14. m4vrick Backpack Build *DONE*

    Only Sandtroopers understand the importance of water jugs in every day life, & for the backpacks. So today is the Tupperware part a.k.a radar dish in backpacks. But which one among the two? Which size? Managed to get two of these for comparison. Exhibit A & B: Some indentations at the bottom. Same for both A & B: 4.4 inch = 11,176 cm 5.25 inch = 13,335 cm To me, A here is the more accurate one. B just seems a little bit too big. A doesn't necessarily be in that brownish color as i've seen them in white too. But please do make sure of the measurements. I am not saying these are the EXACT screen used ones, i don't know how many Tupperware variations they have in the 1970s; but they are "close to screen accurate". So troopers, the next time you get yourself one of these water jugs, do call me and send it to me lol .. OR keep it for your backpack. It's "vintage".
  15. In Memoriam: TD-83314

  20. 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. Weapon: DLT-19 References: 6. Misc: canvas strap, shoes, latex gloves, green lenses: Thank you all... constructive criticisms are always welcomed. Sincerely hope you all enjoyed that. Move along... move along...

  22. PMs not showing up

    Hey @LoveMonkey, same goes to our friend here @dirtydave. He can't seem to PM. Some help please? Thanks
  23. m4vrick Backpack Build *DONE*

    I'll be reverting back to the trapezoid frames. Found a reference that convinced me the other way: Assumption: battle of hoth. NOTE: easy to fool the eyes that it's a rectangular one. Reference: In the battle of Hoth, in some of the references (courtesy of @RoCKo) in at least 3 instances along with this one, i saw that again and again it's the trapezoid ones. Only logical that these were the frames, recycled from ANH. But this is a weak assumption. The 2nd reference though completely convinced that it is indeed the trapezoid one. What do you guys think? Either way, i'm keeping both frames
  24. John, these people are here to help you. This SWAT program is an ever-evolving program and it should be. As you probably know, alley check captain and cantina captain both wear the same armor. For example, I know there’s that recent discovery of that one white tape on alley check captain’s back bicep. Will that be added to a SWAT requirement, that’s the panelists to decide. For me, i know i will add that detail to mine. As what i’ve said before, even your backpack has some details that mine’s missing. For sure John, once you’ve completed this process, i believe you will be the most detailed SWAT trooper around. (Until someone does better )
  25. Just wondering

    2. I believe those are just slings of the Karrimors. 3. Yupe those are rings and the Karrimors come with them:
