  1. Thx Paul. That sounds perfect. I guess Justus will be in a similar place as you are. And so should all of us. This was a great conversation indeed. Saludos.
  2. Very Interesting read. There is not much I think I can add, since I am one of those older TDs who didn't wanted the HWT or the SE TD on the MEPD... But things have changed. It is not 2005 anymore. We need to evolve as Justus has stated! Just one thing here that might make it easier for all of us to come together: The MEPD was born before detachments existed. It was later made into the structure of a detachment. Thats why the name and nature of it is not welcoming for other costumes. Just as the SWAT program. It was not meant to be part of the CRL. Levels of CRL did not existed when the program was designed. So neither the Police Offcier or the SWAT badge were intended but forced to be part of the CRL. Again, that is why its nature does not meets so easily with the idea of a CRL. The Sandtroopers Detachment is different in many ways... but that is history. We need to see to the future. No SE CRL, no HWT on the MEPD... thats the past. Lets not find anwsers for today's challenges there, but here and looking to the future. As I said, I voted no for SE and for HWT... but I also wrote the very first proto-draft for the SE TD CRL and even tried to build it. We need to look to the future. All together. Justus and Paul and their teams are trying to lead us there... lets catch up, and go there! Its not about packs or dirt, its about the character and how we can use it to make our club stronger to benefit all of us, the members. After all, as GL requested, Sandtroopers are just "stormtroopers with special weapons and lots of things on the back" (or something like that). Saludos.
  3. Update. Sounds ridiculous this far... It's been 5 years since I started this build. ANOVOS armor is still boxed, and my TM replica armor is still awaiting for weathering and aging. Hope to have it finish by the end of the summer. This summer. Its been too long already. But now I need to build my daughter's WTF's sandtrooper... Hope I can manage to finish all this year. Saludos.
  4. Tony, This is just amazing! I guess you have no idea (or might have), what this pictures mean to me and many many other Sandtroopers over here. This has to be the most relevant post about the radio ever posted, going tip tip with that awesome moment when the brand and model was discovered. We have literally spent thousands and thousands of hours working, researching and just wishing to someday find one of these radios and then share the info, references, measurements and excitment with the comunity. In the past, AFIK, only two other radios like this had surfaced: one I still think was not real, and the other was destined to business and private collecting, so even if info was shared and we were (and still are) super thankfull, nothing like this. Other than that, one North Star brand radio similar to almost the last detail was found too... but info was never really shared, dont really know why. But this is just a great day for us sandtrooper and prop replicating enthusiasts. I am sure you know how valuabe the radio is and how amazing your found is too. Just, wanted to share a bit of my feelings and our community's, cause this is magic, this is amazing, this is just a great day for us!! I have personally spend years and years after this... wishing for one to appear so we can all share what you just gave us! And for that, I thank you brother! Muchas gracias! I still hope to find one myself. But till that day, this is close enough for me. Saludos Juan
  5. Ciao Tony! That is just a beautiful radio! Great find!!! Probably one of the most coveted found parts in SW! And it is without a doubt, the Holly Grail for Sandtroopers! I cant help but ask, did you find it online? I have spent thousands of hours, literally, and I am sure many others have too, searching for that radio online and offline. It is too much for my OCD to think that I have not search in the right places or times... But, on the other hand, makes me happy that it ends up in the hands of someone who appreciates it. As other have said, If you ever decide to sell it, for a fair price, put me down on the list! Big congrats!!! This gives the rest of us hope, cause they are out there, awaiting for us to find them. Saludos.
  6. It's true you learn something new everyday! This is awesome! Thx for sharing Paul! Ill take this in consideration for every future build! Saludos.
  7. Thx a lot! I actually don't now for sure... It was the thinnest foam they've got on the craft store. About 2 mm thick, maybe even 1mm. Armor was quiet flexible, but also it's a bit thin. I think it would need some repairs have she wore it just one or two hours more. Thx a lot you all for the kind words!! In about 3 weeks we will be attending another Con... I guess she will be wearing it. I will post some pictures. Saludos.
  8. Thx everyone for your kind words!! I told Vale, my daughter, about all your comments and she is very happy and says thx too!! She just asked me to get her new boots for the next con. To have better pictures. Next time. LOL!! Saludos.
  9. THX Everyone for your comments and nice word!! Then the time of the Con came and went...but I finished her armor just in time and in full Sandtrooper fashion!! I added weathering and made the final adjustmente, and even tried to add a voice amp, but didnt worked due to bad wiring... But we had a blast on the con... So finally, here she is... She was in armor for a solid hour. LOL... considering she is 5yo and that the place was super crowded and hot, I consider it a real achievement! At the end, she asked me NOW we were both Sandtroopers and we both worked for Darth Vader, when was she ever going to wear her Princess Darth Vader Costume? Since she could not be a trooper and the boss at the same time! I just told her she could be whoever she wanted, regardless of the costume! I was a GREAT troop! SALUDOS
  10. Well, She just wore here white adidas superstars... I know I will be after a pair of chelsea's on ebay for her real armor... But not for this one. Saludos
  11. LOL!!! Thx everyone. This project has been lots of fun and also, it is very fulfilling working in something i know my little girl will enjoy, if only for one single con due to well... Outgrowing the costume. lol. I will post some new Picts in a moment. Costume is all done, and on the work bench just waiting for the dirt!!!!! Saludos.
  12. Thx for your kind comments! I am now looking for a good looking undersuit. Most likely will settle for ballet tights and long sleeve top. Also looking for gloves and think we will opt for all white sneakers. I'll post more Picts of the next suit up soon. Saludos.
