  1. I tried on my armor and helmet with the Pauldron with the new mag pouch riveted to the side. I don’t really have much more limitation that I didn’t already have without it. Mainly just more sticky around the chin area because it rubs on the Pauldron instead of the armor, but no big deal. I’ll know more after my first Troop next week. I’ll be taking full body pics for my EIB submission! More weathering incoming! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Well I DIDNT think of that when I did those rivets so I’ll have to check it when I get home [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Started some battle weathering tonight on some accessories... I also figured out the shoulder mag pouch. Took some pointers from some other posts and riveted it to the Pauldron. Seems to work really nice! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Approved! Just a quick question: how are folks attaching their shoulder mag pouch to themselves? The shoulder strap on the pack? If someone has any pics, please share! Thanks!
  5. For sure! Battle weathering to come for EIB and for trooping. I just had some help come to get pics for approval done while they were available. Couple more minor tweaks and It'll be ready for trooping! Thanks for everyones help!

  10. Some pics after the glue has dried. I hit the pack with a light black and cream color spray for a battle weathered touch and sprayed an enamel paint sealer. Now this is done, I gotta figure out how I’m going to attach the shoulder mag pouch to the strap. [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Home Stretch: Nylon straps and foam liner: Don’t ask me how because I fought with this thing and broke out a sweat and had to take a break and come back to it... I got the pipe secured with machine screws, washers and lock nuts: I have the wipes container secured with machine screws, washers and lock nuts and the siphon riveted to the oil pan base. Pain in the an impolite person but I finally got it and it looks like it’ll hold up well: The remainder of the boxes I’m just E6000-omg to the base, weights holding them down: All that’s left for this is a wash to weather it a touch and the enamel spray sealer.

  12. No I haven’t, was going to work on that tonight. Great advice, thank you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I had a few beers tonight and was just not happy stopping for the night so I got to “battle weathering” the parts to this pack a little. Used metallic silver testors with a dry-ish brush technique... let me know [emoji2371] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This thing is looking like it’s almost ready to be assembled. I’d like to get a few more paint touch ups, some matte spray enamel to protect the paint surfaces, and figure out the straps. I’m looking at possibly just gluing the boxes to the base, riveting the siphon and wipes container, and screws for the tube... definitely more research or advice will help. Thanks all! Also planning on adding some padding to the back of the base where it’ll rest against the TK back armor. We’ll see. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I’m thinking about using a spray satin or “varnish” on all the painted surfaces on the backpack to help improve durability. Anyone have any thought on this? Or other variant? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Got my funnel siphon assembled, riveted, and painted: Got the vent box “vented”: Screws installed on the other boxes and the backs glued and clamped: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  18. Welcome to the FISD! Don't let your size get in the way of a potential build! There are plenty or resournces and threads here on the forums to help you work through any challenges you might face. There are plenty of armor makers that supply armor specifically for bigger/taller troopers. Good luck!
  19. Hit em with more WIP pics! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. I finally got my box tupper ware in from Amazon... prepped the oil pan for its new real estate: Drop siphon: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
