The brown came out much lighter than I was hoping for (I went off the can lid) and I might redo it later on. It'll mean masking off parts of the vest I want to keep as they are but that is still less hassle than unpicking and re-sewing to the kevlar vest which is an older pattern and does not have a detachable cover.

After failed attempts to find a darker spray I'm trying Citadel Rhinox Hide. There is no spray of this currently so I've trialed painting the front by hand. At least this means I don't need to mask off anything, I just need to be careful as I go round the straps and yellow shoulder patch.

That looks better. You can vary the shade a bit with dark and light weathering.
Happiness is a warm A280. Or A300. Even a Glie-44 at a pinch.

Not sure what happened to my post with my unpainted blaster, but here is the finished thing (with unpainted views as well that give a clue to how I built it). Ideally I'd like to add an A-300 later, but this was easier to begin with since I already had experience making DH-17s.

Nice. I like the little differences you can have when you choose from the Rogue One trooper menu.

Love the blaster, I've wanted a R1 DH17 for a while so may take some pointers from this!

A lot of the blaster is the same as the RFT version I created plans and instructions for. The most complicated change was probably the detailing of the main body that went from two separate pieces to one long one. Pretty much all the other changes consisted of gluing different things to the pipe.

I am finally getting close to having all the bits I need (hopefully). One thing I want to check is a pouch that I have bought. It is a 58 pattern binoculars case and I was wondering whether this is close enough to the field ration pouch to be worth putting the emblem on. Of course I can just leave it blank if not.

A picture of the pouch:

Maybe it's possible. The mess kit pouch looks longer and less broad. I've got one in the garage I can get the measurements off.

I made the same mistake using the Bino case instead of the Yugo mess kit. I stuck the markings on and it cleared, dunno if that helps? ( Still get the mess kit though, dirt cheap on eBay.)

I've ordered a mess kit pouch. The binocular case can just be a regular pouch now. I also have the French grenade pouch and an S6 respirator bag so I've plenty of room to carry things around.

Putting things together now with the Corporal Kasrich helmet:

Alternatively there's the M1 style helmet:

Then for reference an image that shows the jacket and belt more clearly.

Yes, I see what you mean. That is not a perfect rectangle, it follows the collar of the flak vest. A bit more yellow paint will fix that.
