  1. Sonix Radio Dial & text

    I recently had one of my garrison member & fellow Sandtrooper 3d print me the Sonix radio faceplate for the pack I am building. I am currently building the enclosure for the Sonix but I am on the hunt for a good quality dial transfer/decal, Sonix label and a source for the lettering on the components. I have searched fleabay and I am aware of trooperbay's option but wondering if anyone else produces them here on MEPD
  2. My backpack frame is breaking

    I agree, I would disassemble and insert a wooden dowl for strength, countersink some screws either side to keep it in place, Bondo, paint and rebuild. I would advise RS but I don’t know what their response would be though.

    Well done, congrats on the approval
  4. Dirty techniques

    I also used the liquatex acrylics and followed Pandatrooopers technique and was really happy with the result But I ran into trouble when this was knocked back for being to dark and not enough orange tones. So I cleaned it off and tried another technique the second time around. I made 2 washs from the liquatex acrylics, a red brown and a darker black brown. I dabbed the Red Brown on with different size brushes and then dabbed off again with a clean rag, then built this up over a number of passes. Once dry I did the same with the Black Brown and then finally added some pigments on my chest/ab piece

  8. Measurements for pack build

    Would anyone have the exact measurements for the seed trays? Just trying to source them locally

    Nice! I wear a Darman neck seal as well for my Sandy & my Tie and I love them.
  10. Measurements for pack build

    Now I am approved I am looking to build my pack so I can apply for Police Officer. As I have a black pauldron I am looking to build pack #4 and have approached a garrison member, and fellow Sandy, to 3D print some of the harder parts like the radio and cistern. I am really keen to build this myself but the problem I am having at the moment is measurements. I have been following and reading some builds have seen measurements for the frame and have been converting everything to metric but I am having trouble getting a proper size for the seed trays, bottles and the radar dish etc. Is there anywhere where I can find some of these measurements? Also while I am thinking about it Is there a required size for Say the frame or the seed trays for Police Officer?
  11. First TD Build

    Thanks everyone, really happy to be a Sandtrooper and part of the MEPD. I am talking to a garrison member about 3D printing some of the parts for the pack (syphon, radio faceplate etc) and I will build the rest. I am going though build threads and trying to get sizes.

  14. First TD Build

    Been a busy week getting the weathering changed and doing a few minor upgrades. Before I started the torso again I installed the small screws on the return edge of my chest piece to simulate the bracket strapping system When I went for my first approval I was also told the ab piece sat a little high. I did feel this was happening so I decided to create a bracket & pin system on my kidney & ab pieces to keep them inline and help keep the ab down. Seems to work well and also keeps them together to keep the gap down I also took the oppertunity to cut down the thickness of my diamond knee plate as well. To weather my pouches & pauldron I used hairspray and some dirt I had which gave a little bit more to the pauldron/pouches but nothing overboard. So time to send in approval pics again
