  1. Working on your submission now, sir. Thanks for your patience!!
  2. Hi Fred, welcome and thank you for your EIB application. Let's have a look, bruder! CRL and EIB Application Requirements: All the required submission photos have been posted., your armour displays all necessary element as set out in the level 2 CRL, Congratulations on a job well done!. Other-Armor Fit/Assembly: In this section we review observations made by your fellow troopers and ourselves. Some observations may lead to suggestions to improve the overall look of your armor. If any suggestions affects any application, it will be listed below. Nice job on this RS armor, Fred! Just a few notes for you to get you looking your best and hopefully get you to level 3.. I also want to mention that your TD plate positioning is perfect, and awesome job on that E-11! 1. There are a couple of issues on your bucket... The first is that the bottoms of the ears are a little too far forward. Note how the screws are in a line that follows the angle of the trap above them in the reference below. Doing this would give you a more screen accurate look. Reference image 2. The second is that your tube stripes are a little farther out than they should be, especially the ones on the right. The tops of the stripes should be about a pencil width from the cheek. Reference image 3. The clips on your TD should be tightened up a bit to where they are closer to the raised section on the back. Doing this will also help you keep it secure so it doesn't fall off! (I've seen it happen..) \ Reference image 4. SUPER nice job on those side ab/kidney connections, but I would suggest tightening up the strapping between the kidney and back plates to eliminate the small gap. Reference image 5. The size of your large ab button plate is absolute textbook, but the small one could use some trimming. The edges should be inside the perimeter of the raised area. Reference image 6. Tightening up the strapping between your posterior/back plates would reduce or eliminate the problem highlighted below, and line them up a lot better: Reference image Centurion Suggestions:In this section we prepare you the best we can for Centurion. If there are any areas of concern they will be discussed here. 1. As mentioned your shoulder bells will need to come in closer to the shoulder bridges, (touching or very nearly touching them). Doing this will also help eliminate the gap between the bells and your chest/back plates. I see that you removed all the return edges on the bottoms (smart move) so this should be easy. Reference image 2. The drop box on your right side will actually need to come in a bit. The outer edge should align with the outer edge of the ABS belt: Reference image 3. As you are aware, the screws on your TD will need to be replaced with the "pan-head" style. Reference image Overall a very impressive build, Fred. Looking forward to seeing your Centurion submission in the near future. Zeit, um die deutsche stolze Garnison zu machen!
  3. Hi D'Angelo, welcome and thank you for your EIB application. Let's have a look, shall we? CRL and EIB Application Requirements: All the required submission photos have been posted., your armour displays all necessary element as set out in the level 2 CRL, Congratulations on a job well done!. Other-Armor Fit/Assembly: In this section we review observations made by your fellow troopers and ourselves. Some observations may lead to suggestions to improve the overall look of your armor. If any suggestions affects any application, it will be listed below. One of the best overall builds I've seen in a while, sir. Your attention to detail is obvious, and I just have a few notes for ya' to tighten up your overall look. 1. The brow on your bucket could stand to be dropped a bit. Yes, there were higher ones on some ANH Troopers, but the vast majority had lower ones as seen blow in the reference image. Reference image 2. The bottoms of your ears could use a little trimming. Reference image 3. As mentioned in your post above, eliminating the extra tube stripes would make for a much better look. Reference image 4. Not a deal breaker by any means, but if you have some time on your hands and feel up to it, the ab button plates could be squared off and the small one reduced in size a bit, (AWESOME paint job, by the way)! Reference image 5. Not sure if you noticed, but your shoulder bells are on the wrong sides. In some kits they are interchangeable, but ATA's does have the distinctive screen accurate "swoop" at the bottoms, which should be facing forward. Reference image Centurion Suggestions:In this section we prepare you the best we can for Centurion. If there are any areas of concern they will be discussed here. Your right drop box needs to be moved out about half an inch to align with the outside edge of the ABS belt. A dab of CA glue or E-6000 on the back of the strap to hold it in place would make this perfect! Reference image As mentioned, a great build, brother, and I look forward to seeing your Centurion application soon!
  4. Hi Giles! Could you do me a quick favor and post up a pic of your gloves? Thanks!
  5. NICE JOB on those tube stripes, sir! I will have some news for you by tomorrow morning, D'Angelo!
  6. Hi Patrick, welcome and thank you for your TFA EIB application and your patience. Let's have a look, brother.. CRL and EIB Application Requirements: All the required submission photos have been posted., your armour displays all necessary element as set out in the level 2 CRL, Congratulations on a job well done!. Other-Armor Fit/Assembly: In this section we review observations made by your fellow troopers and ourselves. Some observations may lead to suggestions to improve the overall look of your armor. If any suggestions affects any application, it will be listed below. Overall an EXCELLENT build with this TFA armor, sir! Just a few notes for you... 1. Your spats should be lowered a bit to expose the small black rectangle at the bottoms. The one on your left is barely seen, and the one on the right cannot be seen at all. Just a small item, but these are the things that make the difference Reference image 2. Tightening the strapping on your posterior armor would help eliminate of the gap you have between it and the belt and give you a better look. Reference image 4. You have a double return edge on your wrist openings, which could use about 2 mm trimmed off and then cleaned up with some fine grit sandpaper for a cleaner look. (Easy fix)!! Be sure to leave a small amount of return edge, though! Reference images Centurion Suggestions:In this section we prepare you the best we can for Centurion. If there are any areas of concern they will be discussed here. 1. Your shoulder bells look a bit low, and should sit right at the level with the yoke. You have the required shoulder bell supports (tabs) but they are installed incorrectly. It looks as if you are using ABS for the tabs, and changing them out for metal ones may help with support issues. The tops could also be a bit closer to the yoke itself. Reference image 2. Hopefully you will be aiming for level 3 next, and if so you will need to replace all the fabric gaskets with ones made from rubber. Again, a simply awesome job on this armor, Patrick, and one you should certainly be proud to wear! Congratulations!
  7. Thank you for your application, Miguel, and we will be with you shortly sir!
  8. Glad to see you are back at it, Jake, and congrats on the weight loss! The snaps should go where the green dots are, and I would definitely trim off all those return edges as marked. You can trim even trim them down more if you like and still be fine: Reference image NOTE: When cutting any sharp angled areas/corners, (like on the posterior plate above) be absolutely sure not to make the angle perfect, By that I mean give it a very slight curve to the corner by using a round needle file. If you make the curve too sharp it can (and will) crack in that area.
