  1. Which parts don't meet requirements? I don't see any specifics on the website or in the forums. I'm not talking about SWAT requirements, just basic MEPD.
  2. Hi Guys and Gals, a friend of mine wants to buy my armor, and I rarely troop anymore, so I'm considering it. I want to give him a good deal, but also want to be reasonable. It's been so long since I built my backpack, I wonder if you all can tell me what it would cost to make something similar these days, or what it would cost to buy one pre-made, AND does it meet current MEPD requirements? I made it before accurate replica radios and such were available. It is built on a boy scout backpack frame, and has a real English cistern syphon. The "seed trays" are aluminum cake pans. It's all screwed together and pretty indestructible. Here are photos from last year:
  3. When I click that link, I get an error. Who can I send a photo to so it can be added to my info here: http://www.mepd.net/deployed/td-5122/
  4. This is probably not a deployment issue, but an accuracy one. When the backpack frame gets bent and the upper and lower boxes get moved closer together, the neck of the siphon should (and might have to, in order to fit) get shortened.
  5. "Hey JQ question when you put on your helmet and look in the mirror do you see yourself or a bad *** TD from the SW universe?" Not yet, but it's getting closer. My new RT-Mod helmet made a big difference, and I've been steadily losing weight throughout the last year so it's all fitting better. I re-weathered it again yesterday for the Star Wars concert this weekend, so I'm looking forward to seeing those pictures. I'm trying to go more movie accurate with a painted-on gray look. Even though I prefer the natural sand look I had before, it doesn't show up in photos well. Sometimes when I look at my avatar picture (left) I think - "Wow - just like the movie!"
  6. Gorgeous. If I didn't already have one of your MG34s, I'd get this. Very, very nice! Yes, the stock could be darker, but the texture of it looks very nice. The rest of the gun is fabulous. You could wrap real wire around the barrel's T-tracks and it'll be perfect. A friend of mine just bought one of your E-11s. You guys do great work.
  7. Isn't that what they used on the Special Edition backpacks?
  8. Wow - it DOES look like firehose. I knew it looked familiar, but coldn't figure out what it was I was picturing in my head.
  9. Today, up to 80% of children with cancer can be cured. But cancer still remains the leading disease-related cause of death in children. On June 12, John Q., TD-5122, participated in the Trek 100 "Bicycle Ride for Hope" ride to raise money for cancer research. I rode 66 miles (over 100 kilometers - a "metric century"), on the hilly country roads around Waterloo, Wisconsin, in 4 hours and 15 minutes. Proceeds from this great ride support critical pediatric cancer and related blood disorder research. The Trek 100 is the mainstay of the MACC Fund's athletic fundraisers. It is one of the largest fundraising efforts for childhood cancer and related blood disorder research in the United States. Please help me meet my goal of raising $1,000 in donations before July 12! Every donation, no matter how small ($5 is the minimum allowable online donation), will help fight childhood cancer. Please give whatever you can! Visit my Fundraising Web Page to Make a Donation
