just wanted to share my second repurposed clone trooper pack build..

My first was my repurposed clone pack for my medic kit (that i have yet to finish or get approved ) which can be seen in a few pics here and a thread of its own somewhere here on the forum..

I started this pack about two months ago and did a bit here and there since.. last week i got into a rhythm and got it finished the way I like.. the intention is to be used with a second Mandalorian kit (once i get my first finished (need soft goods altered for size since losing weight) i have an idea for..

below you can see pictures of it from cut out pieces of sintra to it beginning to take shape, being painted , weathered ,blackwashed etc..

Like my first pack, i wasnt happy with just little colored recesses on the front edges of the pack, so i turned those spots into safety/beacon lights.. on my medic pack they are red.. on this pack they are orange. Since the pictures were taken the actual brighter lights i ordered for this pack came and now installed.. Currently unable to add the video showing the lights blinking..

in these photos the front tube is not pictured as I had to finish that still... currently need to pick up the end caps from hope depot,paint them and install on the tube and install tube on pack... should take all of 30 minutes to sand and paint..then dry and install...

or those of you NOT sick of my pack build yet. ..
Tonight I attempted to sew the interior pockets.. failed.. I had sewn the wrong length and had to rip the seam so I can redo it another day as to not run the sewing machine at night and p.o the drunk neighbor..
Finished the lower tube for the bottom front and finished the straps and buckles instead.. straps have day glo threading that react to bright lights/flashes ,seen in second photo
Both the buckles and the straps act as "safety " features for the pack.. in ems any red handles/buttons etc o
n equipment mark a release.. either to collapse a stretcher, a stair chair etc.. in this case, quick release of the pack straps if it becomes, lodged, tangled ,hung up etc..push the button and strap pops open..
The day glo straps, easy enough... in dark/Smokey situations if the wearer goes down a sweeping flash light will catch the glo and make it stand out, same would/could apply if someone is looking for help the wearer can be seen more easily from the front as the beacon lights are on the back side..
Aside from interior pockets being sewn.. its done now...lol











and on my medic pack I have a phrase in Mandalorian/mandoa :? and i debated putting one on this pack... well, i did and threw a little humor in it as bored field scribble  ..
