  1. Glad I could help. And can't wait to see it on your pack!
  2. By the way, this was the snow speeder image that got be searching for a canteen. You can see in the lower right hand corner, two canteen looking jugs. They looked allot like the bee stinger. And, I know that the packs were poached for the rebel trooper packs, so, why not scalp the bee stingers for the inside of the snow speeder. I know, allot of assumptions, but, what if?
  3. Also, have a look at this too http://www.ebay.it/itm/BORRACCIA-TERMICA-TERMOS-cc-600-8-ORE-GIOSTYLE-/150854668208?pt=Campeggio_Attrezzature&hash=item231fa38fb0 The BORRACCIA thermos.
  4. Also found this, looks like a longer version of the one in the picture above. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rare-Giostyle-1L-Safari-Expedition-Water-Bottle-Festivals-70s-Retro-Mod-Indie-/331004030915?nma=true&si=niN2O1qF9p0Og8vgb7OznLMEaSY%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 This one is called the Girostyle 1L Safari Expedition Water Bottle. I am guessing the L in 1L is for long. Whereas the other is the short version of this line of bottles.
  5. I noticed on a picture of the inside of the Snow Speeder two canisters that looked very much like the bee stinger that hangs below the pack. They look allot like canteens. So, I did some google image searching on old canteens. And I found this: http://img0.etsystatic.com/000/0/5427515/il_570xN.333554894.jpg Take a look, Doesn't it look like the perfect match for the bee stinger? http://mepd.net/photo_gallery/Photo_Albums/Pages/Back_Packs.html#8 I found this on Etsy, looks like it is a Canteen from the 70s. Produced by an Italian company. http://www.etsy.com/listing/98852517/vintage-orange-italian-giostyle-canteen Sorry if this has already been found/discussed. I did a search and couldn't find any posts about this. Thoughts?
  6. New Cistern: Now, just need that drop bottle on the bottom, and getting close to complete. Also, added fabric instead of plastic ribs, (Apologies if off topic, just didn't think it was worthy of its own thread)
  7. Thanks for all the help with this. I found a great source for the t-tracks... Garage Door insulation. If you cut the ends off, it works beautifully! I found this stuff at Lowes. And here they are installed:
  8. After almost 3 years of start/stopping, I have almost finished my pack. I still have to put the bottom faucet cover on. But, whew, it has been a long time coming. Plus, need to upgrade the toilet part with one of those great found parts.
  9. Where did you find the t-tracks? Yes, it is something that I have been wanting to do, but don't know where to get them. Paul
  10. A couple of years ago i built my scratch built MG-34. Since then, I have not had time to mess around with the hobby. But, to get ready for C5, I decided to update the barrel section. Whatcha think? Here is a comparison of my old and new barrel: Here is it with the old stock and body section: And, here is the new barrel all painted and ready for action: Paul

    Yep, its on the list. I sewed the belt. Next is the straps. Have to do this a bit at a time with a needy 4 year old running around. But all in due time. Paul

    Will do on the pic. Nol, I took your feedback and tried to change up the technique a bit for the chest, back, shoulders and ab plate. i think that this is looking really close. Of course, I then went back and stripped away the arms and legs so that I could provide this same technique to them. What do you guys think?

    Well, my armor weathering was looking a bit old (been 4 years since last painting). So, I stripped all the paint away and started from scratch. What do you think so far? Figured I would start on the legs and arms and work my way in. Paul
  14. Ok, help me out, What is PVC foam plates and where can it be purchased? Thanks, Paul
