  2. Thanks for all the feedback and advice, gents. I'll sort out the darker parts of the weathering and soften any 'wiped' areas. I also think lighter tone wash will make it look more organic and natural. As for the original question, I will certainly be going for PO, but will need another chest plate and make sure there's more of a return to allow for the screws. Thanks guys.

  3. Thanks for the feedback mate. Hopefully going in for UKG clearence next week so should be trooping as a Sandie by end of the month. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  4. Yeah sure. Bearing in mind this is my first attempt at something like this so any suggestions or constructive criticism is welcome. I used RAW UMBER acrylic paint, slightly watered down, and applied with a sponge, then used a damp rag to 'roll' the paint off. I tried to think of where the dirt would naturally build up and where it would be removed. I went for a mid/heavy effect and keep an even loon all over. Thoughts and suggestions or advice greatly received.
  5. Cheers bud. It won't be a problem getting a other chest plate, but would rather wait til I've got it sorted BEFORE applying for PO, rather than getting 99% through only to then wait til it's been sorted. And yeah, I agree it IS worth the work. EIB certainly was, in the end. Almost ready for basic clearence, just need the pouches and pauldron, and one part for my pack. Weathering has been done on the kit too. Cheers for the help mate. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  6. Having looked at the CRL fir both TK and TD I have a question about the screws in the chest plate. Are they REALLY essential? I attained EIB level for my TK and it's my understanding that EIB runs parallel to PO level and as you may have guessed, my chest plate doesn't have the screws in place. Reason being, there's not enough return for them. So my question is, as I want to go for PO (not SWAT) so would it be worth it or not? Seems it'd be a waste of everyone's time to through the whole process only to have this halt my progress. Only option is to get another chest plate which obviously takes time. Opinions greatly appreciated. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
