  2. Hello! Requesting access https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=33143 TK-131933
  3. Hi Alex, glad to see your Centurion App. Could you please add your EIB submission link to the headpost ? Thanks.
  4. Well deserved. 1000 posts is pretty good. 10,000 means you have been very active on the boards. Yes, some people try to run up their count with a lot of "me too" and "yeah" type posts, but what makes Glen's achievement so special is not only has he hit 20,000 (the 10 tonner), but that his posts are so helpful to everyone all over the board. Glen, we couldn't be more proud of you and also thankful for all you have given to the community. A hearty THANK YOU! for all you've done and continue to do. Daetrin
  5. Thanks for the quick feedback guys and I'll get with my Dad as soon as we can to work on the adjustments. A couple of comments/questions in the meantime: 1. Regarding the spacing, apologies on the wrist/forearm, that was just a suiting issue as I had to take off and put my right glove on before we got to taking the pics and I did that one myself instead of with my Dad helping get the glove properly under the forearm. As for my legs, apologies from my DNA LOL. My legs and feet naturally point outward so only so much I can do there. 2. I'll work on getting the additional TD pics. 3. Regarding the E11 weathering, this is a rubber Hyperfirm blaster and is as it was purchased. Do I need to paint the handle/grip? My Dad was wondering if this was a new requirement as he has the same blaster and was Centurion approved (about 2 years ago). 4. I'll work on the helmet adjustments you noted. 5. Looks like when I was making the glove adjustment before the pics one of the shoulder straps shifted on me (the elastic strip sometimes tends to slip). Just a suit up issue I'll make sure is addressed 6. Another suit up issue, but good point about switching out to black velcro. Seems that the strip on that side loosened up and my Dad didn't catch it when taking the pictures (you can see the setup on the interior armor pics). 7. I'll work on gluing the box straps.
  6. Today
  7. NICE JOB on those updates, Alex! Glen has a few points to think seriously about, and I will echo him on those... at Level 3 it's all about the details, brother. One thing I noted is that your drop boxes are wandering inward a bit. A few dabs of E-6000 behind the rear of the straps (once they are in the correct position) will eliminate this.
  8. Hi Josh. and thank you for your submission for Centurion! Our apologies for the delay, but there are several items that will need to be addressed before we can get that badge under you name, trooper. While some items below may not be specifically mentioned in the CRL, it does state that we "....must consider both text and pictures (CRL and reference) when reviewing" a set of armor. First up, we need you to remove some of the paint on the lower "teeth". As per Basic requirement: "Paint shall not leave the teeth area". Easy fix!' Reference images Since this RT MOD kit was made before 2018 when they updated the bucks (molds), the ab button plates are integrated into the actual ab. This is one of the reasons they updated them, as the plates must be separate pieces. (Super nice pint job on the buttons, by the way)! Reference images Not to worry, this is not only possible to fix, but has been done before as seen in the first image below. You should be able to get a set of replacement plates from RT MOD, so it would just be a matter of carefully cutting out the centers, trimming the new ones and gluing them on. RT MOD Centurion from 2016 showing fix The next few concern your ABS/canvas belt. As per the CRL for level 3, "The corners of the plastic ammo belt shall be trimmed at a 45 degree angle that meets the outer edge of the cloth belt". It looks like the corners were trimmed a bit too much, sad to say. Reference images At this point you have a 2 options.. you may be able to trim off the ends of the ABS belt a bit, as long as they don't come too close to the edge(s) of the button squares. Alternatively, you could purchase a new belt. Last up in this area we have 2 concerns. The CRL for Centurion states that the "Canvas belt must be firm/sturdy in appearance. No creasing or sagging". A large crease can be seen on the lower part that extends around the back (red arrow). The second issue is the staining (blue arrow). A few marks/scuffs are to be expected, but the color of the stains on each side are pretty prominent and a big contrast to the bright white above them. Reference images Finally, I gotta' say that is one of the sharpest looking blasters I have seen come through in a long time, but the Hengstler counter will need to be moved forward to where the rear lines up nearer the rear bolt of the folding stock. Removing the scope rail and re-positioning the mounting screws forward should do the trick. We realize you have some work ahead of you, but none of these items are insurmountable and we feel confident that you can address these issues in fine style. Know that we are here to help or if you have any questions on your way to Centurion!

  16. Round two. Plugging away at the painting. My plan is to tighten up the edges with a toothpick and mineral spirits when I’m done. Stripes for tears and vents up next. I’m going to see if my wife can use her Cricut machine to make a stencil out of the decals I have. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
