Jankes IAT WIP


Recommended Posts

Hi!
My name is Krzysztof, I'm from Poland. I'm in the process of building the character of IAT. I made contact with the Polish Garrison group, but in our country no one has taken up this topic yet, I'm first.

I have already taken a few steps. Together with my son, we took part in the Pyrkon fantasy convention in our city.

I tried very carefully to read the information available here. I am very grateful for your sharing of knowledge.

I've noticed that character standards have changed over the years. This is currently visible, for example, in the case of shoes. In the past, high boots were accepted, now short ones must be worn.
There used to be black gloves, now green.
I will follow these recommendations.

In the next posts, I will present my achievements in character building so far.

My character actually looks like this. I added IAT patches on the shoulders. Two pouches on the back.
Due to the lack of a hat, I simply used a bandana. At the moment I have an ordered helmet.

My coverall front. 

It's a conversion of a dutch army military coverall. I modified the collar and cuffs, added pockets on chest and cargo on thighs. 

On shoulders we can see IAT patches made in Poland.

Hello Krysztof   welcome to the Army part of the forums. 

You have a good start here! 

Originally we allowed standard Jackboots, however there was an internal push for more accuracy, hence the shorter, more correct boots.    Here is the link to the art used for the CRL creation process.  You may be able to blouse the legs of the coveralls down for basic approval, the way Rebel Fleet Troopers blouse their boots down over the top of their jackboots. In the end the appearance of the boot should be no more than 23CM visible. 

Im liking what I see, so far; is there a way to get rid of the button below the collar? That is not present in the comic art or the CRL. Otherwise, once you have the correct boots and gloves ( I painted my French Army gloves green) you will be very close to approval!

Thank you for welcoming me here, for your reply and kind words.
Of course, I will adjust my shoes and gloves to the applicable standard. The final character appearance as presented by user Kessel is the one I am aiming for.
As for the button case. In this regard, I am constantly thinking about how to make it not needed, but above all not visible. I don't have an idea for it yet, but I'm working on it. I will consult my seamstress in the near future. Maybe she will come up with something?
The presence of this button results from the design assumptions of the Dutch military suit. Originally the button was brown, I changed it to green to make it less visible.

I would also like to present my goggles here.
These are goggles by Uvex. I removed the logos of this company from them, changed the carrying strap.
In the next part, I plan to replace this strap with an olive version and install plastic regulators also in olive green color.
I wonder if I should paint the goggles frame green? Please give me your opinion.

How you wish to proceed on the goggles is up to you as long as they meet basic approval requirements.  If you want to go Specialist, which I highly recommend that you do, you will need to meet the CRL requirements in blue text.

Ok, thank you. I'll paint them green. I think they'll look much better.

I'm back.

Yesterday I finished DIY work with my helmet components. Meanwhile I bought boots and painted them.

Now I introduce you my character almost done. I'm just waiting for french green gloves.

2) Painting:

3) Inside liner and chinstrap mounting:

4) And one Easter egg - this helmet is very similar to german ww1 and ww2 helmets, so I decided to mark it in the same style like german soldiers during wars ;)

I don't know how you view it, but during the last presentation of my character, I didn't like the visible difference in the colors of the equipment. The main belt and harness were of a different color than the pouches mounted on them. Therefore, I decided to paint everything the same. I like it a lot more now. The same painting makes it look much more authentic, "as if it were meant to be", at least that's what I think.

I started working with gloves. I found one pair made of leather which I also painted green, and I also added three stripes.
Unfortunately, in the middle of painting the second glove, I ran out of paint. Therefore, I only show my right hand. I'm waiting for delivery.

I must admit that I was inspired by Kessel's idea, but I chose a slightly different material, sackcloth tape.

Painted glove and straps ready to be mounted:

And this is what happened after the first painting. When I have the paint, I will try to apply additional layers only to the strips:

Finish!

I would like to inform you that I have completed the character creation process. I am currently waiting for admission to Legion 501st - Polish Garrison :)

 

EDIT: I'm TX-21371, hello everybody!

Congratulatioins on your approval @Jankes

Make sure to request full spec ops detachment access, which will give you further access to other parts of the forum [merch etc].

 

Thank you! I think I did what you ask for :)

Congratulations on approval, now lets get you set up as a Specialist!

After my Level One certification, it's time to become a specialist, reaching Level Two.
In the case of my character, to achieve this I need to modify my goggles among other things.
Below I would like to present you a new pair of goggles that I have prepared for the second level.

 

As a basis, I chose the Polish army goggles, model CG1. Which at the factory looked like below:

I removed from them the original rubber strap with a cover for glasses, a sponge around the eyes and nose. The whole thing has been painted in Montana Olive Green.
In place of the black rubber strip, I installed a new, olive-green one.

Ultimately it looks like this:

In the photos the rubber strap appears to be brown, in fact it is a classic military olive green / khaki rubber. Below is a daylight photo:

What do you think about it? Are the goggles now eligible for Level 2 certification? @Blackwatch
