HWT build with pack and T-21


Recommended Posts

I do have a question about strapping.  I understand how the brackets will work, but I'm still a little fuzzy on the double snaps single snap thing.  Looks like the thighs need a garter system that will use webbing and snaps hung of a belt.  I've decided to build my own garter system with black belt and build my own white canvas belt.  So here's the question....

 

Shoulder / bicep / forearms can webbing be used instead of elastic?  If webbing can't or shouldn't be used, what about using elastic with snaps, gluing webbing in with snaps and then affixing the elastic with snaps.  This way I don't ever have to un-glue anything but I can replace the elastic as needed.  Also could I double the thickness of the elastic?  Say I need six inches from bicep to forearm, could I make it 12 and double it over to 6 and put a few line tacks in with the sewing machine so I have double thickness on the elastic.

Hi All,

 

  My 2 kits are ordered and on the way am going for ANH HWT and Cantina Captain Sandtrooper, while waiting for the box to arrive i am going to get all the bits i need for the build anyone have a list of straps, clips, studs etc needed to reach level 3? if i am going to build might as well go highest from the start.

 

Also does anyone have a detailed build how to on the packs? or a list of what is used parts wise, have looked at all the pics and references most looks simple but want to be right. Again going for highest level for this so want to ensure parts are right

 

Thanks

A good supply list is provided by JustJoseph63 can be found here:

UKSWRATH Avonos build is pretty much the go to thread around here.

And if you're like me and need something more than just pictures, thankfully trooperbay put together some Tutorials on youtube found here:

And to give credit where credit is due, I've been following Jaltroopers build thread here which he has some vendors he purchased through on there.  I ended up using the same vendors and everything arrived as ordered!

I have yet to start building but all the above should get you pointed in the right direction.  Also if you're doing a Sandy then you might want to check out http://forum.mepd.net/ as they are the experts on Sandtroopers.

So I'm going through my parts and labeling the Right side parts so I don't accidentally mix things up.

I have more than enough fabric for making my canvas belt so I cut a bit off for magnets.  I have enough fabric to build two canvas belts with some ribbing so they don't flop around.  i'll build one to the HWT standard and the other to an ANH standard.  And here's some easy to pull apart magnets:

And I found Navajo bro's build thread with AM2 kit, so I'll follow it as well as some of the others.  I think I'm fairly ready to start assembly but I've got some reading to do before I start my first cut.....

Well life got in the way, but a recent purchase has spurred my interest in getting things from box to built.

Got a very cool Skull Trooper Helmet.

Anyways I found my old thread here.

Courage is lacking on my part to start but I need to just start.
