FORUM NAME:   hoakypoaky

GARRISON:   Central California Garrison

ARMOR/HELMET:   RS Propmasters commission

BOOTS:   TK Boots

PAULDRON:  RS Propmasters

POUCHES:  RS Promasters (shoulder) / Trooperbay (belt)

BLASTER:  Etsy seller (can't remember)

BACKPACK:  RS Propmasters

 

Well I figured it's about time to get the ball rolling on this.   Just looking for PO approval at the moment, not "Move Along" SWAT at this time.   This was a custom build from RS Propmasters, but it took me awhile to get it modded & adjusted to fit my body.   Hoping this will be a fairly simple process, as the parts came from the original ANH molds.   I modded the inside of helmet & welders lenses myself.    I know my trooping resin E-11 needs to be weathered, so I'm working on that right now.   Disregard the  electronic 1996 Hasbro blaster that is also pictured.    Hopefully I can get these images posted properly from Imgur :)  Looking forward to getting approved!

This was also I thing I was woundered.
And I think the colour of your seed trays and bottles is to “blue”.
I think it should be a little bit darker/gray.
Don’t know the RAL code at the moment but I can sort it out.

That's a black nylon loop attached to the top of the thigh armor.  The belt passes through it.   That's how it came from RS Propmasters.

Normally you use a single belt für the loops and you wear it under the armor.

Hello Ben, welcome and thank you for your interest in becoming an MEPD deployed officer. 

I will be taking care of your application doing the review but before I can do so, please request Sandtrooper access and status here:

You have done a good job in making your armor fit, I think it looks good and suits you well.

However, Bigwam and DerGummo are right, first of all, you should be wearing a belt under your armor to which the elastics holding the thighs in place should be fixed. They definitely shouldn´t  be fastened to your ammobelt mate.:sweat: Please sort that out. 

I can already tell you that you will have to adjust a few things on your pack: the color should be bluish grey/battleship grey with a satin finish, the RAL code is 7031 but I suppose you guys in the US can´t use this, so please roam the other threads to find the correct color, e.g. this one in which the color used is called "lake blue":

The bottles on your pack are too thin, I would suggest getting some with a larger diameter.

Finally: Rubies or Hasbro toy blasters aren´t allowed anymore, your other (ETSY) blaster will be fine, just make it look used by drybrushing and/or weathering.

Keep up the good work and keep those new pics coming.

Cheers mate.

Ah I see.  Wasn't aware about the extra belt under the armor. I'll have to change that & take another pic

Here in Holland the RAL 7031 is called Battleship Grey.

It all looks super already Ben.

Good luck and hope you get deployed soon bro :peace:

Just curious what kind of belt most of you use underneath your armor to attach the thighs.    Like a simple nylon belt?  I'm just worried it will slide down under the armor & I wont be able to pull it up when trooping.   

EDIT:  You know now that I'm thinking, I think I did receive a nylon belt with the armor, but I had no idea what to do with it.  I'll have to go back though my case & see if it's still in there.   Sorry for the dumb questions.  My first official troop was last weekend & I'm just learning as I go here.   No one pointed out the belt to me.  

So address the belt, weather the blaster, then deal with the backpack last.

I wear a nylon belt and hold it up with some braces (I hope google translate did a good job with this word/ in Germany it’s Hosenträger). So they can’t slide down.

It depends on the shape of your body, I wear only a regular leather belt but many add suspenders to keep it in place.

I made the nylon belt myself. It just sits above my hips so it won't slide down.

In one of the troopermaster armor build video's it shows how to make one.

I use a leather belt and created a new hole to make it super tight. I also pull the back side as high as I can so it does not slide down. I have completed over 10 troops and lots of walking in it with no problems.

Best of luck on your deployment.
