Managed to get some picks of the Hoth pack whilst I was at galaxy's edge. Shouldn't be too much of an issue. Also the long sleeve t-shirt. I'm assuming it's stone/grey in colour?ImageImageImage

We normally say tan for the shirt but stone, desert or beige should do as long as it's not too brown or yellow. Primark used to do great cheap ones but I've not seen them for a while.

Cool, I've bought 2 white ones super cheap and will dye them stone once that arrive.

Dylon Sandy Beige is the best colour I've used, bung a pod of it in the machine and dye all the whites at once. Pebble Beige looks to brown to me.

So I've amassed this much so far. I have the spray paint (All 5 colours) ready to go onto the trousers (which have had buttons removed). I also have the dye for my long sleeve T-shirt (stone) and will need to remove the branding on the glove back (plus weather). The vest, rank greeblies, ribbed hat top/peak and gators all in the postal system at various stages so those will also arrive any day now. Just waiting on donut from Ross at RWA and sorting bandolier and greeblies too. Getting there :)Image

Hose, etc for the pack in hand? There are a couple of greebs that can go on the pack that I think I've 3d models to print from. Same for the wrist comm and bandolier amusements.

All looks good so far. Then the spraying fun starts. Always bear in mind little steps at a time doing that. That duster pic from earlier shows a nice example of the basil being the main colour, then moss in slightly less area, then an occasional splatter of hunter and holiday (strange colour) green with the odd bit of lime here and there.

Cool, thanks mate. I'm going to try and spray them this weekend but will have a go on an old bed sheet first. I'll keep you updated ASAP.

Some updates. Shirt dyed stone beige, gloves weathered and makers mark removed. Bandolier with greeblies but they need more sanding and repainting. Belt with 2 side pouches weathered (pouches US WW2). Boots weathered. Backpack now has some greeblies and side pipe that I got from some dodgy bloke online ;). Once the rest arrives I'll add more. Trousers will be done over the weekend.ImageImageImageImage

All looking within mission parameters so far. The greebs appear a little silver and I like more stealthy colours, makes us harder to spot in the trees.

I like trees.

The greeblies are still in sanding primer phase and will look very different once I've finished :). Vest and gators are now being sorted, I've started on the vest but had to nip into work so post and update on progress. Also spray cans are here so I can finish the trousers off over the weekend. Donut should be on its way from Ross anytime now and have ridges and peak ready to attach. All I need is some pleather for the flaps and that'll be done (paint/sort donut first).ImageImageImage

Admit it, the second pic isn't you.

Looking good so far, as you've said there are bits still be attended to.

Picky eye details -

The backpack shoulder straps look a more modern version of the really basic design I'm used to, but the rings and stuff could be removed if needed so we'll hold off on that. Hey, soft pack is only an option anyway but if it's two pocket and canvas the standard wording says that.

The only thing of note about the vest and not likely to be an issue is the ref pic shows the applique shoulder section having a V angle from the front, not parallel to the floor. I don't see there being a fuss about it but i did notice it. I don't expect it to be an issue.

I thought that but in other pics it seems to be parallel but difficult to tell from the way they are wearing the vest. If it isn't it only slightly off. These are actually from set not a show piece. It's difficult to find a really good ref pic. Also I've reach upload limit for the month Image.Image

Hanging like that can help to support a debate over reference. It's not as clear cut as the other one where it's more obvious. I wonder what the Leia standards require?

Look at the geezer on the right in that pic for an "unusual" ERT accessory - the one with the saber hilt in his hand.

As if we don't have enough stuff of our to carry already. Space wizards, typical.
