    Need guidance on my first build

    Hi Connor. Welcome to the MEPD. Yes, you have come to the right place. To get started here, check out this section: http://forum.mepd.net/index.php?/forum/1-the-barracks/ And check out the CRL (costume reference library): http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TD_sandtrooper And check out this thread for help in selecting a kit: http://forum.mepd.net/index.php?/topic/10053-where-what-and-whom-to-avoid-when-buying/ This hobby is really about the research. Take your time, do some reading, and ask questions. There a number of options for buying armour - all depends on your budget and body size. The do-it-yourself kits are very rewarding and will save you a few bucks. Try to stick with vetted sellers - and remember, if a deal looks too good to be true... well, you know. Also, since the sandtrooper armour is almost the same as an A New Hope stormtrooper, you might want to also check out FISD (www.whitearmor.net) for additional information and general tips for building armour. Of course, once you get into the sandtrooper details such as backpacks, pouches, and BFGs - nothing beats MEPD. Good luck with your journey!

  7. Hi there... for your review. Let me know if I missed something. I apologize for the green screen - it is casting weird shades on some of the weathering in the close up pictures.

    Trooper Z's TD Build...WIP

    If I’m not mistaken, those look like the “sandtrooper style” stripe templates from trooperbay. One side is more sparse than the other if I remember correctly. All I know is that this is not based on the “stop that ship” helmet. I think the “ move along” helmet had more stripes on the left side, so maybe the stencil was trying to emulate that.

    Found a pic from day 2 of the expo. I’m practicing my Garindan walk. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sounds awesome! People seem to really respond to the TDs. I fine tuned the kit a bit and wore it much more the second day. Trooped with the T-21. Nice! Here is the only pic I have right now - I was in kit about 6 hours each day but didn’t manage to give my phone to anyone for pictures so I’ll wait for others to send me copies. I had to copy this one from the expo’s twitter feed. I’m on the left. The other sandy is another Badlands trooper, Jon, who is SWAT. It is from day one so no T-21. I don’t believe the one in the middle is from the Star Wars universe Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I donated it to the props display. The Armor needs some fine tuning. Going back to the TK for the rest of the day. How was the troop? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Have my first troop with my TD this weekend. I tried on my backpack tonight. I’m not to sure about trooping with it since there will be some thick crowds. Of course that means attaching the shoulder pouch to... what? I’ve decided to use a small elastic strap to wrap around my arm and magnets to hold it in place. Drilled 3/4 hole in wood “ammo clip”. Inserted a couple of magnets. Duct tape another magnet to inside of chest. It holds its position without any other support - sort of. Still need the strap around the arm. Two sets of magnets might hold it in place without any other support. Might. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Had a small troop today, so that was good. My voice electronics failed again, so that sucked. But I think i conditionally finished my t21, so that is good. Added the tubing greeblie with some blue wire (sacrificed some cat5 wire). Added sling. Added coil wire. Just need weathering and one other thing. I put a couple of elastic bands around the barrel shroud. I’ve seen other builds where people use tubing. I think it is a bracket for a bipod. The elastic bands are temporary. Screen shot Actual Lewis gun. I will shape a piece of plastic to wrap around the barrel some time in the future. I also picked up some fuel line to test if I can fit it on the corrugated surface without looking ridiculous. My weapons locker is expanding. New member of the family.

    T21 is painted and assembled save a few greeblies and sling. Also made some minor modifications to the pack. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
