Looks good! Just need some weathering on it. Have you tried it on yet? I made sure it fit and wearable before I did the finishing touch's. Your getting there! Great job.

OK, so my pack has been "rejected" locally. Main reasoning based on BF screwnshots are: tube tops too large and wide, bottom left box has visible joints, rough paint work, looks too "handmade", ventilation vent and buttons on top left are too large.

 

Taking all of these comments and valuable suggestions into account, I have changed all of it, what do you think now?

 

It is pending glueing and painting based on GML feedback

That does look sharper! Why is there only three screws in vent cover? As a tip too I recommend using something like a torx screw or something similar that doesn't look like a Phillips head. Pan head screws also look better then buglehead like you used.

I can't believe how abandoned I had this post.

 

Since receiving my OK to troop as a HWT and many troops later, I made my T21 blaster over the Summer.

Since then I made and got my Tusken and Wampa approved so been busy

I am now looking at taking this to EIB and then Centurion status as my SDS armor is already at EIB approved and is ready for Centurion.

Quick Question: how much battle damage is to be added, I don't want to end up looking like a sandtrooper.

Enough to be seen at the minimum. Check out some Centurion application photos to be sure. If it worked for us that should give you a good visual impression. Glad to see you're out trooping and aiming for EIB!
