  1. Well, I figured it was about time that I officially become a part of MEPD. I have always wanted to be a Sandtrooper and since I now have the packs down, I think I am ready to go for it. I am going to post my progress on here so people can review and let me know how I am doing. While I have built over 75 packs in 1 year, I have only done a few armor sets. Of course, I will have to build as if I am going for SWAT, so accuracy and detail are going to be very important to me. This will not be a rushed build. I figured since many build threads have been lost, I could make this one very informative so it could possibly assists others with their first builds. I just received my armor today from Jason Hill. He makes excellent armor and he also provides many of the pieces for the packs that I build. Armor: Jason Hill Pack: Crookknight's Imperial Trooper Packs Boots: Crow Props - Giovanni Rodriguez Pouches - Crow Props - Giovanni Rodriguez Pauldron - Crow Props - Giovanni Rodriguez Replica Sonic 75 Radio - SandieComms - Ian Havenhand DLT-19 - Hyperfirm T-21 - Custom Build (not by me) Here is the package I received today:
  2. Hello all! I recently bought a TD armor from Walt's (WTF) as he had a kit available to ship last Friday. I got it today and I'm excited about it. As this is my very first kit, I am also very intimidated as I need to do everything from scratch without a diagram or labels on the parts. Also, I need to buy all the tools and fasteners. I am aiming for SWAT approval but may settle for a Police Officer as I do not want to be tied to one character. I ordered the orange and white pauldrons and will be ordering different pouches. I also plan to get a E-11 and DLT-19 blasters. I'm leaving the backpack for the very last. First thing I will be doing is buying the tools to start trimming the excess stuff and order some brackets and the masking decal for the helmet. Anything else I need to do or buy especially before the build process? I need all the help I can get!
  3. So today marks the beginning of a new TD build thread. From what I've been informed the kit I have is a TE kit with an hdpe helmet. This is a whole new ball park for me after working on a fiberglass clone. I have read many threads and gotten advice from a few members, however I will still look here and the fisd for guidance. With that being said here is day one's progress. Unboxed Stared at for a very long time Back to forums to make sense of which pieces are which I have a firm idea of what parts go with what and how they attach. However the thighs are throwing me for a loop.
  4. Hey all, New to the forum, wanting to get an armor build going. What are your thoughts on this Airsoft E-11 replica? http://www.evike.com/products/61969/ This is not entirely new as the sterling has been around for some time. I know some dimensions (grip) are off as well. Just curious if this would work for trooping & approval. Thanks!
  5. So I found this supply list on the FISD page; Elastic- 1 inch wide black for shoulder bells, etc. (4 ft.) 2 inch wide white for ab/back plate shoulder connection (1 ft.), 1 inch wide white for drop boxes, (1 ft.) 1/4 inch wide white (1 ft.) for shoulder straps. Nylon strapping- 1 inch wide black, at least 6 to 8 ft. long. 2 inch wide black (48 inches) for high tension areas if you are using the double snap method. (NP) Before I go out and buy all this nylon and elastic. I wanted to know how these supplies might vary for a sand trooper build since our belts and shoulder straps are both different from a white armor build.
  6. Hey folk's i am still rather new. But i have got my very first kit! Partially,i am paying for part's separately and i got so far my armour for my Sand-trooper armour. (All that is missing is pauldren,helmet,boots etc i just got the basic armour) So want i need help for is assembling. I am finding it great trouble getting over the fear of making a mistake,measuring wrong on my armour,How do you folk's get over the fear of this? Also i am finding it hard to get any sort of proper tutorials on armour assembly of the sand-trooper armour,as i want to be as accurate as possible (Gagues from piano wire,rivets,measurments etc) And the last problem i am facing is that i do have a rather big body type,And want to close off the sides of my armour,When i test-fitted it (uncut) I found out i have a large gap on the side's. I found out from the forms i can close these off with attaching the same kinda plastic under the armour,and making it flush on top with possible putty or some sorts to fill in the small gap. So dose anyone know where i can find extra ABS plastic for this enough so i just have to deal with the gaps on the armour insted of making multiple gaps. I am just finding it hard really to jump into it all. Any sorta tips would help,As time is of the essance for me as i am trying to organise to buy some of the essential parts so i can attend "For the Love of the force" Convention in manchester (as i study away as well i only have some weekends to at least assemble the armour) Thanks.
