Hey all, I'm new here and I'm hoping to join the MEPD; & Southern Cross Garrison here in Australia! I'm a few Grand into saving for a RS Propmasters Kit (ANH Sandtroopers) I had a question in regards to mixing medias, I know that this inst Legal to my knowledge, but i saw the Kyber Patrol Pack a while ago and love the look it gives and was wondering if it is allowed to mix the pack with ANH armour (instead of the Classic pack)? Same for my DLT Blaster rifle, although i love this rifle as it is, i'm considering adding a Black sling to it as seen in R1 for ease of use and extra style, is this allowed or no I'm not quite sure about the extent of the rule to not mix? (I will also post this on the MEPD facebook) Cheers in advance!
Hey guys my name is Hunter. I joined MEPD in February of 2011 with the hopes of finishing a TD. I had bought an old fx kit and attempted to convert it to a TD. I was 17 at the time and pretty new to building i got defeated very fast. I also didnt have a steady job. i was pretty much a dumb kid haha. Anyways i ended up trading off the Stormtrooper and always regretted giving up. Now as a 22 year old with a couple jobs and way more build experience under my belt. I have returned and im finishing this time. My roommate had recently talked about selling his TD as he had a Tie Pilot he was in love with. We made a deal and i ended up with an AM suit. Ive been currently re weathering it. I have some trimming to do as we are different heights. I have all the pieces i need just need to do some mods. I sewed a new belt with the help of my friend. I am looking forward to joining the ranks. Progress pics incoming lets get dirty. My roommate in the TD Backpack Working on a new canvas belt. Scrubbing for 2 hours.

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.
