  1. Nice work trooper, a few suggestions before the DO's get here: Looks like one of your forearms has a.gap in the join (lower in image below) Your butt plate appears to be pushed back and slightly overlapping the kidney. Can also see a nylon strap on the sides Corners of your plastic belt appear a little small and are narrower than the fabric belt, you may find your fabric belt is a little wide. Good.luck.with approval
  2. Nice work, you may want to just trim down those inner screws so they don't dig in when rushing to put your helmet on or off
  3. Appears your AB plate is on an angle which may be causing the height difference
  4. Unfortunately that is not the full link, only search result, click on your link from the search results and post that link, or provide your TK ID and it can be looked up for you
  5. Even scrap ABS cover strip offcuts are good for rubbing off excess E6000

  7. HOWTO: Make your FX armor Expert Infantry I get this question asked a lot so figured now was a prime time to write it up. Obviously the helmet has to go in toto, but since that's an all-out replacement and usually taken care of in one fell swoop, and the fact that most already have swapped out their helmet, Id like to focus solely on the armor. Despite what people may say, making your FX armor EIB acceptable actually takes little effort, money, and time. You can pretty much buy everything you need for $60 and an hours worth of work, or if you have time can do it for abo

  14. Nice work, it's a good idea to also add a skirt around the base of the neck as it can move and skin may be seen between the seal and collar of the shirt
