  2. Haha, the username ought to have given that away Waiting on your PM.
  3. Well one Irishman to another, how could I resist? How much do you want for it? Got any pics? If it's easier for you, you could send it to my parents in N Ireland.
  4. I need one more measurement. The box in the top left (not the tube circled in the image). Does anyone know the size of it? Better yet, if you have a 3D file for it then I can get one printed up Thx
  5. It was this reference that I think shows all the angles being 90 degrees: At the bottom of each pack (admittedly you can only see one side on each), you can see that it is a right-angle. The two frames I have are both plastic so not sure which one you thought looked better but here is my interpretation. I know the homemade frame has no bend in the upright pipe. I'll do that later I'd love to hear what you guys think. Thx AW
  6. Thanks for the feedback. The biggest problem with the frame that I bought is the bottom part. It should be four 90 degree angles according to the reference pics but it's actually more like 90, 120, 120 and 90 again.
  7. Due to our good friend Mr Corona, not much has been happening with my kit but I am now trying to get back in action. The backpack frame that I bought off the web was all wrong But the good thing is that it's encouraged me to try and build my own. I looked at the Scootch guide and it's great but when I followed his measurements, things got a little weird. The sizes I used were 438mm (17-1/4"), 254mm (10") and 89mm (3-1/2"). I cut the pieces and roughly put them together... But when I placed my seed trays (bought from Trooperbay) inside the frame (just to get a rough idea), it looked wrong... It feels like the whole thing is a just a bit too wide. It might be because my corners are not as sharp as Scootch's... So, the question is, how wide should the whole backpack frame be? This is the one I bought of the web. I think it's a better width... What do you guys think? While I'm asking questions, the angle for teh bend in teh frame should bea round 30 degrees, right? Thx
  8. Could you perhaps post measure,ents of the height, width and depth? Preferably in cm/mm rather than inches. Thx
  9. Not according to this SWAT requirements page: http://www.mepd.net/?page_id=910/ I don't know which is correct but if the SWAT reqs ar wrong then they really ought to be updated. Does anybody know which is right?
  10. I couldn't find any direct comparisons of the different types of backgrounds so I decided to make this image. It's been useful for me so maybe it'll help some of you too As far as I can see from teh CRL, thes are the only approvable variants. If anyone knows of more, fore up a pic and I'll add them Cheers AW
  11. @Sn4k3, using fullers earth powder and hairspray.
  12. There seem to be two main groups when it comes to weathering. There’s the people who use fuller’s earth and then there’s the paint and clean off brigade. I don’t want a bunch if ”this way is right” answers but what are the advantages and disadvantages of the two?
  13. How did you attach the straps? Glue? Note: I haven’t opened the straps yet (the king of losing things) so it might be totally obvious once I’ve done that.
