If you will use it for SWAT? No.

I´m not happy with the frame. Absolutely not with this corner pieces:

I miss this endcapes (pic), and: it is no karrimor.

Before you invest a lot of time and money, look for better parts. Karrimor are not expensive and you get them easily. Above all: they are original. I hope you understand me.  I just want you to not do any unnecessary work.

ahh I see, the only thing I did to the frame was to shorten it so the ends are how the pack came to me. Totally understand so thanks for clearing that up :salute:

The best is, use an original karrimor frame and put your parts on it. So you can modify all for your "look sir droids" pack. :salute:

@TheSwede I will see what I can come up with for the frame.  It is custom aluminum and the only way to connect the pieces is with the elbows.  I have used CPVC in the past, the only issue is it tends to break over time.

 

I will search for more Karrimor frames, but I have had little to no luck finding them in the last 6 months.  If you know of anyone that sells them or a good place to get them, please let me know.  I usually try to use Ebay.Uk.  I will gladly send you a CPVC or Karrimor frame (If I can find one) at no charge to use for your SWAT application.

I did not mean that I demanded anything, I just wanted to let you know the SWAT requirements for your SWAT level field packs:duim: If you find a karimor please let me know and we can work something out, there´s no hurry as I will turn my attention to the FOTK build for the time beeing.:) Thanks for awesome customer service:salute:

I think I have found a karrimor frame.  If I do get it, I will send it to you at no cost.

 

I know you are not demanding it, but it is the right thing to do.

You are welcome.

I can't wait to finally submit for my initial approval as a TD.  Just finishing my new armor, now.

This (or the deployed artwork) will be made into a nice wall poster, thanks  Greg (Wook1138) for putting me in such nice surroundings:duim:

Well...the Sandtrooper already has alot of accessories with the pauldron, field pack, extended arsenal etc but I figured having some more wouldn`t hurt:)

 

And...I´m pretty sure this is a droid we are looking for!!

I need a net bag to finish this of so I can carry it in my hand or strapped to the pack on those non-formal troops or when I´m attending as Joe-public:)

As a nice change of pace I won`t say anything, just show how I did - feel free to ask if some thing is unclear though:salute:
