Sandtrooper, '76 style all the way

I've been dedicated to build my Sandtrooper for the last, I don't know, 5 or 6 years. Have gone through 2 different kits, and dozens of upgrades in equipment, build, gear, tools, painting and detailing. Putting literaly hundreds and hundreds of hours working and a fair amount of money on it. All with one goal in mind: build the most accurate Sandtrooper ANH Armor I could. Without saying this is 100% accurate, I can tell that this armor has most if not all the datails, that were seen on the ANH Sandtroopers on screen, shot in in 1976. A lot has been done to make sure that all details have been taken in consideration and I have gone really out of my way to ensure all the parts and detailing was done as close as possible to the real props and costume. This for me brings somehow some closure in this process. There will always be something new to add or modify to any armor, but, I feel pretty confident that this armor is now in its ultimate shape and fashion. This is MY 76 STYLE STORMTROOPER ARMOR and I feel very proud of it. So, just a bit of showoff here... and most of all, a bit of sharing the love for Sandtrooper armor:
Thx everyone who has shared the road with me, for those who have read or followed my posts, for those who inspired my search and for those who tough me how to get here. I will keep building armor, and posting of course even if not very often... but today, I feel like achieving something. GRACIAS. Juan
