Looking between the ref pic and the photos, it's like playing a rock hard game of spot the difference ;) Seriously well done, a very good likeness too! Looking forward to seeing this at Expo.

To-Do List

Knife and SheathHighComplete
Mossenburg M500MediumComplete
Shirt and PatchMediumComplete
S.T.A.R.S Beretta M9MediumPlanned
Knee PadsLowComplete


Holster (Posted 5th February 2010)

Holster arrived, its based on the Safariland 6004, given it a matt finish coat of paint and removed one of the leg straps to better replicate the one used in the game.

Headset (Posted 5th February 2010)

Headset was a Bluetooth unit that had the wires stripped and filed off. It was then given a coat of paint with details added.

Knife and Sheath (Posted 23rd January 2010)

Soft brown pleather was used, the main part is backed on to card to strengthen it. Seam detail and a press stud was added and two loops were added to the back to help fix it onto the black strap that will be worn over the one shoulder. The training knife was covered in latex and spray painted.

Vest Detail 2 (Posted 10th January 2010)

Lettering added to the back of the vest: 'S.T.A.R.S. Special Tactics and Rescue Service'

Vest Detail 1 (Posted 10th January 2010)

Two short strips of olive green webbing that matches the colour of the vest were added above either of the front pockets.

Grab Handle (Posted 7th December 2009)

After the foam padding was added to the back and front panels, excess fabric was taken from an unseen section inside to make the grab handle. The handle was padded out with a little wadding and fixed into place on the back.

Collar (Posted 1st December 2009)

The collar section was opened up and the seam where it is attached to the rest of the vest was sewn up first so that the padding didn't move about inside. Quilt wadding was used to pad it out and the ends were sewn closed again.

Side webbing (Posted 1st December 2009)

The vest comes with olive green webbing. Instead of removing the side webbing completely, black strips were sewn ontop and silver eyelets (to match the combat belt) were added. A space was left between the black and green webbing so that the combat belt (for the sheath) fits under and through it. Black cord replaced the olive green that came with the vest and the sides were laced up so that the belt for the sheath could slip through easily.
