First Consept
« on: Jan 09, 2018, 12:39 PM »
I am working on drawings at the moment. However I have some sticking points that I would like answered prior to moving forward with my drawings. My over all build is going to be Light till I can get OM then try for Recon(Amphibious in specialty).
 How ever where one of my sticking points is on the bucket can I go internal re breather or would I need to have hoses running to the external closed circuit re breather?  I would like not to have to make many mods once complete to move from Light armor to Recon

There are a few Mercs with integral rebreathers and no hoses.  Take a look at Raestin's helmet.  I think that's a good example of a rebreather.  It certainly appears to be, at any rate.  Now, as to whether or not that would be acceptable for an Aquatic Environment Specialist, I'm not sure, but you can send a PM to Krie Taakur, and she should be able to tell you.

Has any one used kydex before I was thinking of making the armor out of if?

Also checking the CRL's it mentions off the shelf camo as a no go and list a few brands/types. I was thinking of using the atacs fg as it very closely resembles the pattern used by the Rebels in ROTJ.

Kydex is on the acceptable materials list.  I have no experience working with it, but I know a lot of people make knife sheathes out of it IRL, so googling that may yield some tutorials.  I do no Sintra is super cheap and easy to work with. By no means discouraging Kydex, esp if you already have some on hand.

You will probably need to submit the camo pattern name along with picture sample to the App Team Q&A forum for official ruling.  Would be careful with it as you're already drawing inspiration from real world military.  Mercs have a 80/20 rule on cross over -- 20% not-mando stuff to 80% mando stuff.  Again, not saying no, just saying get feedback before you get too committed to it, which you're trying to do :)

As usual, Sep offers good advice.   :)

You can post the camo pattern - and an RotJ camo pattern for reference if you'd like - here in your concept thread.  Or you're welcome to use the Question Form that Sep suggested.  Using the question form might take a little longer for a response, but more App Team members will see it.  Either way, you'll get an answer.   :)

I rather ask questions first and do this right so it is not as time consuming or costly.

Just seeing if there any update to this, as it will direct my decision process.

Typically, if it's a real world, off the shelf camo, it'll be a no-go.  Sometimes obscure and old camo patterns are acceptable.  If that's a current camo pattern, I'm afraid you won't be able to use it.
