Field Packs Only....No BLASTERS Allowed

Recommended Posts

Hey Rick, (Dirty Boy)

I was interested in purchasing one of your packs or pack kits. I can't get onto your website or message you. I'm looking to join the 501st by the end of the year or early next year as a HWT. Dumb question but is there a difference in pack from a sandtrooper and HWT? Other then the cleanliness. Can you please message me back with some prices/ options?

Thanks in advance,

Paul

Hi Paul, in the olden days, you could qualify as a HWT trooper with a Sandtrooper backpack. Then Quartermaster came along and created a backpack based on the Battlefront videogame and set the standard very high. Here's some discussion about the HWT backpack versus sandtrooper backpack:

Check out the FISD forum for some of the build ups:

Quartermaster (the first)

UKSWrath (known for his very thorough build threads)

http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/30034-hwt-backpack-build-part-1/

If you are truly going for HWT designation, then be sure to check out the sordid details in the 501st CRL:

Or, you could have fun with us in the sandbox! thumbsup.gif

Here's my updated one; now all that's missing is a Sonix with the accurate dimensions:

What is the best way to rig the pack for wearing without damaging your backplate?

Thanks

Here is my own pack #5 made from a mix of dirtyboy and crashmann parts, real tuppercraft sto-n-go and radar dish. Paint is "moon blue"...

The overly large filter, which I made out of a wet-wipes bottle and draught seal will be soon replaced with a 3D printed model that I designed...

I shall also soon be adding some 3D printed "mystery" box greeblies, again that I modelled from scratch...

That looks great, nice job! How did you like that as a kit? I recently got in contact with him and would like to get one when I have the funds.
