You're welcome. This is exactly what these diagrams are for! :)

Rolf started the process with some hand drawn diagrams, I just organized and made the look pretty.

OK, I just need some clarification. The Captain (orange pauldron) TD's are accepted in the 501st? For example if I were to construct the Docking Bay 94 V1 (Garinden), Docking Bay 94 V2 (Tuck & Roll), or a Roadblock V2 TD, those are acceptable forms of the sandtrooper armor into the 501st?

Can the TD costume have a holster for the T11 blaster and does it matter what side the the pouch goes on your waist.

they can not have holsters for MEPD....check with you GML for local approval. My suggestion would be to take it off for your submission pics and use it if desired for NON cannon events

Hey I was checking out the TD's walking down the alley http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/1/1c/Sandtroopers2-hd.jpg right? and the one in front looks like he has no backpack and one small spanish pouch on the left. Is tis true? since this is the TD I am modeling my armor after until I can get a backpack set up. THANKS BROTHERS

Got my armor yesterday, and have been working on it all night tonight. Got most of the pieces cut out and ready to sand. Will post pics in a different thread, but so far so good.

Every time I think I have my cantina captain build figured out I come up with another question or two...so here goes.

I read that cantina captain used the hero lid. Does this mean I couldn't make SWAT with a stunt bucket?

Also, I know RS is geared more towards a TD build, but my budget calls for AP. Outside of tracking down a knee plate the transition to TD should go rather smoothly shouldnt it?

Hey Jason...

that's not a hero lid, look at the reference pics--->

http://www.looksirdr...oper_hd_074.htm

http://www.looksirdr...oper_hd_075.htm

It's a stunt helmet with only cut out three holes each side...you see, everything will be fine. And an AP lid is also ok for this build.

Hope this helps....

Thanks DarthChridan...as I do further research I am considering ATA. While I realize you guys do not endorse any particular brand of rig, the difference in price could basically cover the cost of my DLT-19 or a pack from Dirty Boy or QM. It may also enable me to do a second build for the GF. Any thoughts? Thank you.

Terry.

My SWAT cleared armour is ATA so go for it. In my opinion other armours may have sharper detailing but you can cover alot up with dirt as a Sandy anyway. We will never discriminate at MEPD other than against FX helmets (which is something the 501st is generally against nowadays)

Thanks...got on the ATA waiting list last week...will be sending payment for my lid tomorrow and start piecing together my rig over the next few months. I may post pics of my bucket build but there will be a lot of time between that and my armor build. Lol
