Hey Commando's,

need help sourcing parts for the Rucksack Build.
Purchased one of the Czech M60 rucks and i am now looking for info on who makes Greeblies for it as well as any info on how the Hose feature is supposed to attach etc.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Tanner

If you have any ref photos, I can make them. I've designed greeblies for the endor commando bandolier so can do that too..

Dr8072 makes the greeblies. PM him and I'm sure he'll help you out.

I bought two pipe fittings that screwed into each other. After painting them, I glued one fitting to the end of the hose then cut the hole in the pocket. I stuck hose and fitting in the hole, and screwed on the second fitting inside the pocket. It stays in place nicely. To attach the other end of the hose, I drilled a small hole in the back of the pack, near the flap and one in the top of the hose. I placed a bolt through the hose and hole in the pack and tightened it down with a nut.

Here's a picture before I got the greeblies.

Here's mine:



The top greeblie is a Bikerscout helmet snout upside down. The lower greeblie I made myself based on this photo of it in the Star Wars Costumes book.



The hose I attached inside the top to a loop of fabric with a cable tie. The bottom I attached to the pocket with a magnet.
