  1. Feel free to check out the modified code that I did for my blaster (link to my build thread is in my sig). That should cover what you are looking for.
  2. I don't think so. I checked their twitter feed and they haven't posted to it in over 12 months.
  3. Is the Rom/FX available any more? I went to their site and it is down.
  4. Great work Steve, I have a feeling this will be the go to thread for Anovos conversion to qualify for Centurion.
  5. A small flat head screwdriver will also work. Just shim it under the edge and work around the ouece until it comes loose. That is what I had to do with mine to fix that same issue.
  6. My suggestion would be to reach out to the GML to have a conversation, via phone if not in person. Try to get a feel for what is really going to nees to be corrected for basic approval versus what are suggestions for just a better looking kit.<br><br><br> My guess is that something has been lost in translation <br><br><br> Keep your chin up, the standards at the MEPD are high, but the group will help you get there.
  7. It will depend on what level of achievement you are going for, so Andrew has some solid advice. Posting this exact same question in the Hurt Locker should get you a lot more feedback.<br><br> With that said...her are some thoughts from me...<br><br> The left thigh is missing the notch.<br><br> Cover strips should not be sqaured off, the corners should be clipped, creating 45 degree edges, by about 1.5mm.<br><br> Bucket is missing the mic tips and s-trim.<br><br> Back plate should not overlap the kidney plate.<br><br> The rivets on the left side of your kidney/ab junction appear to be too big.<br><br> The largest box on the ab plate should have the "washer" in the lower right corner.<br><br> Your compression top is bunching at the elbows. Could just be how you put it on, or the size may be too big.<br><br> Good luck with your journey!
  8. Taken directly from the belt section of the CRL for the ANH Stunt:<br> "The holster is affixed with only two fasteners at the bottom (one per strap)."<br> In the current form, a belt with four fasteners would need some type of modification to meet the basic approval.
  9. I'm with Germain on this one. I am sure as the Anovos kits get rolled out there will be several inconsistencies that will have to be addressed and the owner will have to make their own decision on if they want to go down the path of making the required alterations to not only meet with the current CRL's, but to also achieve any higher certifications. So much going out there about these kits, but unless I am mistaken, no one has received one yet to start documenting what will be shipped to the consumer (re: those of us in the costuming community).
  10. The last pass of a damp cloth before painting can be done with rubbing alcohol instead of water. Will achieve the same results, but much faster drying time as the alcoh will evaporate faster than water.
  11. Don't forget to drill a small vent hole in the center of the pipe that can be covered with the control panel. Otherwise you have the neat TD pop gun with the first end clap you put on. KABAAM!
  12. N40's should be fine. The only difference is the 42's have more pulling force. That shouldn't be a big deal for armor assembly.
  13. Thanks Tony. The ab is an easy fix. If any one has suggestions on the belt I am all ears, I don't even have a thought on how to fix that.<br> Excited to be EIB...now on to centurion after a couple of tweaks....
  14. Build Log – 11/6/15 – EIB Repair#1 During the review of my EIB application it was discovered that I had incorrectly attached the ammo pack to the inside of my thigh. I have no idea what I was thinking when I did that, but it is wrong so it is time to get it fixed. First up was to gather the tools for the repair. The speed rivet (or cap rivet if you prefer) must be removed so I can move the pack attachment down onto the ridge of the inner thigh. To do this, I will use a flat head screwdriver, end nipper pliers and a shop rag. I used the screwdriver to loosen the rivet from the inside of the thigh. This way any surface damage would be on the inside and I won’t scratch the ammo pack. Once it was loose enough to get the pliers under the cap, I used the shop rag to protect the surface and snipped off the head of the rivet. It should now be loose enough to push through the armor and release the ammo pack. Now it was time to repair the hole. I will use scrap ABS to patch the inside of the armor, glued on with 2 part epoxy. ABS paste will then be used to patch up the hole. I used a small paint mixing vial to create the paste, layering on just enough pure acetone with a syringe. Stirring with the craft stick to get a nice even consistency. Add acetone as needed until all the ABS chips are dissolved. Do not over stir as this will introduce air bubbles, which will not make for a clean repair. I went for the consistency of maple syrup. Apply the paste to the area with the craft stick. As the ABS will shrink slightly as the acetone evaporates, layer up the mixture. Then wait patiently for it to dry. If you want to accelerate that process, wait at least an hour for a primary skin to form on the repair and then you can use a hair dryer on low from a distance of at least a foot to blow warm air over the repair. This will speed up the drying time. Once dry, I used a file to sand down the repair to the surface, then progressing grits of sandpaper from 220 to 320 and finally 1000 to sand to the surface. Novus 2 and then Novus 1 was then applied to finish it off. It looks like I introduced some impurities into my paste, which are showing up as dark flecks. From a distance of a couple of feet though it is not noticeable, and since this is the inside of my thigh, it is highly unlikely that this little dot will ever be seen. All that was left was to drill the position properly for the pack, attach a new speed rivet and then paint it. Repair completed, hopefully this will get me over the hump for EIB.
  15. Yep....I screwed up. Going to have to fix it, but that will not be fun as most of the pack is glued down.
  16. ok...I think that fixes it...sorry for the issues the first time around.
  17. Thanks...thought I had done that. I will go back tonight and check all the images. I appreciate the heads up from you both.
  18. Which link is broken for you? I tested all three and they work from my side.
