    looks awesome! Sandtrooper is going to be my next suit I make. Was this a kit or is this from scratch?

    No, the pack I am doing is the "#4" pack
    it has no filter, but does have the tubes



    I have 6 tubes on mine, it's "believed' that some fell off before the scene above was filmed

    I can't wait to see it after it's weathered. So other than Lewis' help, where did you get the plans/list of found parts that you need to build it? Or did you come up with the some of it on your own.

    Awesome pack. Don't sweat the weathering mate. It took a few goes till I was happy with mine (9 goes at it). Just remember it has to match your td weathering!

    It looks very comfortable.....is it?
