*ATTENTION* -- NEW PO CRL´s for TD -- valid from 1/17/2019

Recommended Posts

In addition to the CRLs, the following rules apply to Level 2 (deployed Police Officer).
Moreover, it is up to the DOs to make additional decisions for or against acceptance.

We also expect a PO candidate to be well informed about level 2,  we suggest to read the threads here and ask questions if guidance is necessary.

Helmet:

  • is made out of fiberglass, ABS or HIPS
  • It is white, with appropriate weathering and does not contain excessive stylization.
  • It must match proportionally to what was seen on screen
  • No FX Helemts are allowed!
  • All visible screws have to be off the correct countersunk flathead type with a diameter of 7 mm and no washers are to be used.
  • Flat green helmet lenses, made from lighting gel material, green welder´s mask face shield, acetate, or similiar product.

  • Three or four teeth on either side of the helmet frown may be cut out
  • a mesh behind the frown is not allowed

  • they consist of two main boxes (aka Seed Trays), that are the approximate width of the backplate
  • correct bend on frame
  • Vacu-formed radio faceplates are not allowed
  • Strict screen accuracy is required!
  • While not every Sandtrooper in the film had a backpack, we feel that this level of commitment and overall design of the character should be attained. This also means taking no personal liberties such as LED lights, etc.
  • For the color of the backpack parts, a greyish-blue color is recommended to meet the requirements of screen accuracy.

Pauldron:

  • Pauldron has no decals or patches and matches.
  • The overally dimensions and look as seen on screen (not to thin)

Chest Armor:

  • Hardware from screen accurate bracket and strapping system must be visible in the bottom return edge of the chest plate. They may be functional or emulate the existence of the brackets.

Other acceptable names/designs include Stolla Wien and the once common "Norwegian" green MP-40 pouches (shown - only aceptable for the shoulder pouch), made in leather. If using a green pouch for the shoulder, they should be dyed or painted black.
