Hi Björn

 

Thank you for your interest in joining the elite and submitting your request for SWAT OFFICER activation.

It really looks like you have put a lot of time and effort into getting your chosen trooper as screenaccurate as possible and I really like your attention to detail, especially how you tried to recreate the screen caps, very well done my friend.

Your gear is on spot and your emulated trooper is immediately recognizable. But each new SWAT candidate gets looked at even more so from the previous trooper and the bar gets raised even higher.

You are definitely on the right track.

Still we always emphasize patience during this process as we pay more and more attention  to fine tuning with each new SWAT applicant. 

Both DOs as well as the MEPD´s senior staff will give your armor a full inspection and review.

Some details may definitely be missed and re-checked, but we will try to catch them on every pass given until you are cleared and ready to join the Special Weapons & Tactics Team, mate!

I´ve been very busy lately but I have started the review process, so hang in there!:)

Okay Björn, let´s get this started…

 

MEPD SWAT OFFICER: application review part 1

 

Name: Björn Dapper

Legion ID#0: TD-82112

Forum Name: Doubledx

Garrison: German Garrison

 

ANH Sandtrooper selected: Alley Check Enlisted/private (black pauldron)

 

Helmet:

 

Green lenses: check

Paint color on traps / tears: check

Paint color and number of teeth: check

Mic Tips: check

Vocoder color: check

Rank bar: check

Brow: check

Side Screws (ears): check

Weathering: check

 

**Additional Comments**

Björn, nice helmet, excellent paintjob and it would be good to go but I think that it is sitting just a little too high on your head, it should sit lower. If possible, remove some of the padding inside the helmet to make it look more like what we see on screen.

Armor / Suit Details:

 

Canvas straps shoulder: check

Neck Seal: check

Black Undersuit: check

Shoulder Bells: see comments

Biceps: check

Forearms: check

Pauldron: see comments

Chest / Back Plate: check

Kidney / Butt plate: check

Ab plate / Side Rivets / Cod: check

Strapping: check

Tighs: check

Shins / Calves: check

Sniper Plate: check

Boots: check

Gloves: check

Hand plates / Guards: check

Ammo Belt (waist) w/ correct angled edge: check

Ammo Belt (right knee): check

Canvas Belt: check

Pouches: check

Weathering: The weathering looks really good and matches the emulated trooper quite closely. However, there are certain details that are missing and others will have to be changed.

 

**Additional Comments**

1. Shoulder bell: pull up your right shoulder bell a little so it matches the screen reference

64nqopt4.jpg
2. Pauldron: there should be more creases in your pauldron and it should be positioned differently, this is probably due to the fact that the original worn on screen might have not been completely closed.

u5eimz4v.jpg
3. Weathering:

 - There is too much dirt on the right upper thigh.

y5olwxoa.jpg
 - The dirt in those crevices where the shins close at the back seems too much/too prominent to me.

kfrs82j3.jpg
 - The inside of the right boot seen on screen looks black as if there

   are paint chips or at least the white paint has cracked and is
   showing some black underneath.

- You will have to reposition that spot of dirt on your chest as shown in these pictures:

BACKPACK

Pack#2

Details: see comments

Weathering: check

**Additional Comments**

You also did an amazing job on that backpack of yours, I just love backpacks. However, there are some minor details to be addressed:

1 It looks like your radio has slipped down, in the reference the radio looks to be positioned higher.

2 I do not see the duct tape in the screen references, but removing that will be the easiest fix.

3 The cap at the top of the mortartube should have a wider ridge.

Great job on that Doopy conversion.:duim:

So this was your first review Björn, there are quite some changes as SWAT is a challenging but finally rewarding process and I am absolutely certain that you will successfully overcome these challenges. Some of these changes … well actually most, will be just peanuts to you. As I know you, you will have done these changes in no time. 
It would make my job a little easier if you could upload some higher resolution pics next time as they look very pixelated as soon as I enlarge them in size to point out the important aspects. 

Please be aware that there might be other points to consider as soon as I´ve found the time to rewatch “A new Hope” in 4K.

Cheers mate!

hi and thank you for the review.

the "Duct tape" is not due tape, it is the belt from the frame. see here

okay, I need to order a new cap for the tube and I will make the changes. 

 

thank you

Just use some elastic and roll up the extra webbing from the strap so it doesn't interfere with the look

Hi Björn, I´ve told you that I would be revisiting the 4K version of ANH to check some details and so here I am again with some additions to my first initial review.
Looking at that very high quality version of the movie, I realized how many of those amazing details you were able to capture as for example that little spot of dirt on the backpack´s radardish. Of course I was also able to see a few more things that could be improved.
So I have just added those points to the existing review. Please have a look at them.

The bottom left ear screw seems to be unpainted or at least the paint has chipped, so please remove the paint on yours.

New and additional points:

Your special pouch on the left side looks great as I think but I see some kind of lace coming down behind it, this could be from the backpack´s shoulder straps, however, I rather think that´s unlikely and suppose it´s something that was used to attach the pouch to the belt:

c8xq2n3n.jpg

Also have a look at the overhang of the two halves of the right thigh at the top, there should be this little pointy edge (actually that should be easy to do, I did the same thing on my last build and just added some scrap ABS piece and used sludge to connect the pieces).

You shold also rework your weathering on that right thigh as yours doesn´t match the screen reference.

zo92sp6g.jpg

Same goes for the weathering on your right shin, you will have to slightly move the spots as yours are positioned too low and different in shape, please also add some earth wash or weathering in general to the duct tape (I would suggest doing that on all of the tape on both shins) and also do not forget to add the little spot of dirt below the tape very close to the lower end of the shin next to the boot. 

bzpviiy5.jpg

There are also three quite characteristic spots of dirt at the back of the left shoulderbell which are there on yours but I think they look very different, you will have to adjust them in size, shape and position:

hi Urs, thank you for the second review. for all pictures, please click on it for full high resolution !

IMG-4634.png

 

next is the Backpack:
i See no gaffer tape or something on the box

back1.jpg

 

but there is a little gaffer tape on the lower seed tray, so I will add it

backpack2-3.jpg
backpack2-4.jpg

 

last point: the belt on the left pouch. I see it so, the belt is from the backpack, when you look the movie you can see it.
here is a picture.

Hey Björn, as far as the boots are concerned, your plan sounds good. The lower screw on the helmet's ear looks good too. I'm completely with bigwam about the tape. That's an easy fix. 

Thank you for providing that pic showing the strap from the shoulder straps curving down above the pouch. I completely agree with you on that and consequently you will have to try to emulate that with your pack as well. 

Cheers mate, looking forward to seeing your improvements. :salute:
