  1. Very cool, at a hefty cost lol. Hope you get the armor all cleaned up.
  2. lol, yea don't stress too hard
  3. He's a legion FOTK approved in an Anovos Alpha kit, this is his 2nd kit. Guess I should have been more clear on this
  4. Well it's August in So Cal, be prepared for anything lol
  5. Awesome looking forward to meeting so many of you
  6. Javier completed his over a month ago. He built it to the Anovos design with no changes. He's already a legion FOTK
  7. Snap mounts are pretty easy to be honest. I know all this may seam daunting however, there are many build threads on the subject as well as countless Centurions with interior photos illustrating placements, not to mention folks here to help. If you don't feel up to making your own there are kits you can buy, just glue in place and go. Hope this helps
  8. Much better though I personally would trim the smaller plate even further. Any edge or corner that sticks further than the armor is in danger of getting caught on something, not to mention a smaller plate would look more screen accurate, as per the reference photo.
  9. The measurements are not a requirement and so will not effect any level of approval if not followed. This does not to discredit wherever they were acquired from. The point is armors will differ slightly between suppliers so naturally what may work with some armor may not work with others. The key here is that the plates do not extended further than the Ab mounting surfaces as seen in the reference photo.
  10. The buttons look great, the return edge (flat section) should not extend out farther the raised Ab section. Should look more like this
  11. Lol, it's all good, just a slight difference of opinion. Like many here we're just passionate about armor , Paul's focus on the elbow gap is correct and I don't dispute that, my concern was the overall length of your arms and armor placement. Again, coming from someone who has long arms if my armor was built to his specs my forearm armor would be at the middle of my forearm. So, placement is relevant so it doesn't look odd. That said, dropping the biceps as low as they can go without popping out the bottom of the bells and minimizing the gap between biceps and forearms is key. If for some reason you find yourself with unusual amount of space between the forearms and hand guards I suggest consulting one of the DOs here as well your garrison's GML for advice as those will be the folks ultimately approving your armor. Keep up the great work
  12. Wow Shawn you're making so quick work with your build. Excellent!
  13. Not going to argue with you on a build page Paul but simply look at the photo I provided. It's not rocket science. Florian I apologies for the slight disruption. This is your armor build it as you wish, according to the CRL of course
  14. I always understood it meant the lower corner of the return edge. And that's how I approved applicants. Yes the top section needed to be trimmed a certain way but it wasn't the main focus.
  15. Incorrect. It is relevant. Also, once you put your arms down (and eventually you will) your forearms will hike half up 2" inches. Coming from experience as someone who 6' tall with long arms it makes a world of difference where the forearms are placed. I agree there should be minimal gap between the forearm and bicep but if you have exceptionally long arms this theory doesn't always apply. Florian I suggest you take a look at some taller RS Centurion applicants as see how their placement is set.
  16. Then look for a "thin" walled plumbing tube roughly with the same outer diameter specs as Daniel mentioned.
  17. Hey Derek, thanks for the kudos brother. You can suspend your thighs a few different ways. 1. Take 2" or 3" wide Velcro and sew a loop at one end for a waist belt. On the other sew on some Velcro, then add Velcro to the inner thighs. There you have an adjustable suspension system that's supported by your waist. 2. Take 2" or 3" wide Velcro and sew on some Velcro on both ends. One side connects behind your Ab the other to the thighs. Again, adjustable suspension system. 3. Glue, or add snaps to each end of 1" nylon webbing (length is up to the wearer). Then glue webbing or snap mounts to the thighs and Ab. Split the webbing somewhere in the middle/upper and add an 1" adjustable buckle for dis assembly and adjustment. 4. Buy an already completed suspension system that's not only used for the things but for the torso as well. Hope this helps
  18. Actually it's very easy, just slide your hand between the Velcro sections at the top then push towards the bottom, kinda like a zipper lol. I like it because it give me room for expansion, if you know what I mean , not to mention it's screen accurate
  19. It does work well but I do suggest using less Velcro than I did. My was a bit overkill
