Thanks vod! I'm finally at  the point where everything's in the pack except the batteries. Eventually, each switch will turn on its own green LED, and the switch on the left side will turn on the blue LED next to it.



The green LED bar is actually a name badge that is rechargeable. Here's a pic with the lights dimmed, showing that LED bar a bit better.



But now it all comes back out so I can paint and weather it. I also still need to attach buckles to hang it from the harness I'm making.

Okay, so I finally got up off my shebs and got some more comms pack work done.



She's all painted, weathered, and has the machete sheath attached.





If things go my way, I'll have pics with ALL of the LEDs wired up and working tomorrow. In other news' my new flight suit is almost done. I'm getting close to being ready to submit my brigades app!   ;D

Greetings all. I feel like I've been working almost nonstop for the past few weeks, but in the midst of all that I've finally managed to 100% complete my comms pack. Please disregard the view of the kitchen sink in the background.



The LEDs on the front panel look white in the photo, but they're actually green. Each switch is meant to access a different common radio frequency (Rebel, Imperial, Mandalorian, & Hutt).



This second shot shows the power indicator light. It was originally going o be blue, but I tried out this amber light and liked it better.



Lastly, this is a shot of the bedroll that I attached to the bottom. I'm extremely pleased with my final result on this thing!

Hello all, I'm still here and still working on my upgrades. I had a nice hefty piece of aluminum that I did some grinding on, and came up with a decent belt buckle. I then drilled holes in it, and used Chicago screws to attach it to a belt.



I drilled the outer sides of the holes big enough to create a counter sink effect, causing the Chicago screws to drop down below the top surface of the buckle.



I then put in the backs of the screws. You'll notice that I set a snap in the belt, right at center of the back of the buckle. This will eventually snap into my (in progress) girth belt, to keep the gun belt from moving around when I walk/move.



Anyway, I'll be filling the countersinks in with weld, then I'll grind them, sand them, then I'll have a belt that "appears" to buckle in the front, but that will actually snap closed in the back.

Excellent detail on the comm pack, and nicely done on the belt :D.

Thanks vod! I'm actually doing a bit of fine tuning to the comm pack, pics of the FINAL final results are coming soon. Same for the belt, once all the pouches are done.

I got started making a set of aluminum knees.







They still need a bit of work, but I should have them completed by the end of the week. My soft parts are nearing completion as well. I'll have pics of the flightsuit and girth belt soon.

I spent the last few days fine tuning the shape of my armor plates, as well as weathering and sealing them.







Also, I recently posted pics of my completed comms backpack. However, the more I looked at it, the less I cared for the "boxy" look of it, so I went back to the drawing board and redesigned it....



painted it....



and added Mando'a lettering and weathering.



Currently, all of the lights I'm adding are installed and wired. I have just a few other things to install tomorrow, then I'll add pics of the completed pack. Things are starting to move along much quicker now!



The revised comms pack is complete.





I had some leftover Warnammer 40K decals that I thought would look cool on my kit, so I used a few around the dial.



I can't state enough how much happier I am with this pack than I was with my first one. More to come soon!
