  1. The suit is perfectly fine. Myself and many members have NE. I was just approved with my 2nd EIB award with it.
  2. Thanks guys! The drop box, gap on right side and calf were all minor things when I suited up that my wife and I didn’t catch. I will tweak the belt, forearm and ab button plate and suit up again soon!
  3. Yeah that’s just not aligned properly with that Velcro closure in the back.
  4. Yes it is. It would be my 2nd one and I am thinking of doing ESB too since I already have another blaster. I will never be able to catch Glenn with his 6 and counting but I can try.

  6. I’m not a blaster specialist, but do I see a couple of things that are not super accurate. It certainly is not the only kit with a foldable stock and I would be a little concerned that it is 3-D printed and how durable it is. I do like all the moveable parts, (hengstler, trigger, selector switch, d-ring, folding stock and magazine comes out. And the icing on the cake is sound effects. Based on my knowledge and experience, it seems to me that it would pass centurion. However, before “pulling the trigger” lets let some of the experts chime in.
  7. My assumption is your last sentence is spot on with what should happen at the Garrison level.
  8. Well I troop now with the NE armor and Anovos bucket so I have seen how dark Anovos is. The difference is mostly noticeable (just barely) in photos. Yeah I think Pauls answer is the best otherwise we would have to get all different combinations of armor pre-approved and that just isn’t going to happen. It would have to be looked at on an individual basis.
  9. I was approved as Centurion back in 2014 with an ATA lid and NE armor. The bucket is a more milkier white than the armor, but there wasn’t a question raised about it. Now that was going on 4 years ago.
  10. Slightly rounded looks good. Colors and all look great. Fantastic work! I will also echo the half/half helmet.
  11. FWIW, you guys (Paul and staff) are doing a hell of a job. I, for one, did not like the FOTK initially. But it has grown on me and I love it and like the TLJ version even better. Though I don’t even have a FO costume and will always be OT TK at heart, I would be down for the new patches/coins and like the emphasis on the new suits. Awesome job!
  12. No need to paint white first. The black doesn’t show at all.
  13. I've used a flathead screwdriver to get under it and a little twist to push up ends of rivet. Certainly you can cut the straps because the inside doesn't matter anyways.
  14. Definitely need to trim more off. Only should have 1/2 inch gap between your body and armor. You should also trim more off the return edges. About 1/8 inch is all that's needed.
  15. I think it looks better---more in line with the tapered frowns from Ep 2-6. Now if only they would completely eliminate the "duck-bill" look by extending the sides of the faceplate to have little to no black showing just above the side vents.
  16. There are many things I don't like about the RO TKs, but the helmet is not one of them. I like the sharp lines, a vocoder that looks like a separate piece, and indented tube stripes. Definitely a bucket I would want to add to collection. Couldn't care less for the rest of the suit, personally.
  17. I do the entire way down to avoid them popping open while walking.
  18. Doesn't get much cleaner than that! Easy pass and on to Centurion....
  19. Taylor, awesome job on the build! EIB worthy for sure and with a few tweaks, you will be on your way to Centurion. A couple things to make it look even better is to bring your shoulder bells in more. They should be almost touching the shoulder straps. Secondly, the belt looks a little crooked. I noticed in one of your close-up photos that another snap was added to ab piece on left side (right when looking at it) and so perhaps you have already fixed it and just need to update the pic. That sucks--You might have to suit up again! Lastly, the sniper knee plate could be tighter on shin. The bottom center of plate should be touching cover strip. These are nit picky things. Helmet looks superb with changing out ear screw, fixing frown, and even accurate hovi screens. Plus, I can tell you shined it up real good. Great job!
