The black nylon is an internal tab I use to reach up and pull open the snaps. It is NOT visible on the outside. I created this after straining dozens of times to open those snaps.

The shotgun shell mount was replicated from the RS Propmaster's pack. I found the exact auto clips on Amazon and cut the base out of ABS to match the RS pack.

Hi Peter,

First of all welcome to the MEPD and thank you for your interest in joining the MEPD´s finest.
 

Thank you for providing such a tidy application, your armor fits like a glove and suits you well, you look great and your pack is brilliant. I don´t know why – as plainly spoken, it´s actually just a frame with rubbish attached to it:lol: - but I just love a well-built pack and yours looks great .

                               

That´s a cool story about your mother in law helping out with that red canvas, what a nice lady!

 

Okay, let´s get your review going.

Nice helmet, I like the weathering. Brow´s a little low for my liking but that of course is personal preference… some dirty dudes in the movie had an even lower brow.

Backpack

a. details: check

As stated above, great build and kudos for building your own pack. Piece of advice though, get some cheap black backpack, take of the padded shoulderstraps and add them to you pack, it will probably be more comfy.

Weapon: E-11

a. details: see comments

b. weathering: see comments

*additional comments*

I am not completely happy with that E-11, first of all because it looks too factory fresh, so please add some dirt, e.g. a wash with some sandcoloured watered down acrylics and you may also make it look more worn, by drybrushing the prominent parts, secondly as it has a solid scope rail. I am going to let this pass once but the next trooper trying to apply with one of these blasters will have a harder time. The RotJ E11s had a solid rail, that much might be true, but not on the ANH E-11s.
And of course I still have to leave this here every time I see a sandtrooper with a regular E-11: “Bapty for the win!”... go and build yourself one, mate, you can do it, it´s fun and way more accurate!

Peter, this was your first review!
Your gear looks great and you will be a worthy addition to the ranks of the MEPD´s finest, just one easy fix, so go for it!

I am looking forward to seeing some new pics of your improved and dirty blaster soon.

Cheers mate!
