  1. I have been working on getting my armor ready for my Centurion application and I'm just about there! I think... Here's what I've been working on: Removed the return edges from the shoulder bells. (Photo shows the one on the right with the edge removed) Removed the Anovos paint and completely repainted the vocoder: Replaced the ear screws (Thanks @justjoseph63): Removed the male snaps for the belt, filled the holes with ABS paste, re-positioned the belt, and put in new snaps: (It was too tight for velcro to keep it in position, it kept falling beneath the lowest button) I also adjusted the strapping on the left forearm up to even the gap between the elbows. I am planning on fixing the angles of the sniper knee later today. Hopefully I'll be able to get some pictures wearing the armor later this week.
  2. Hello Carlos, Greetings from a member of your local Dune Sea Garrison. The next steps to join the 501st Legion and the Dune Sea Garrison would be to sign up on the forums over at https://duneseagarrison.com/, if you haven't done so yet. Our local Garrison Academy Instructors (GAI) are Christopher Gilb, Jeff Seager. They are tasked with assisting new members with costumes, questions, and onboarding. Over on our forum Chris "Big Gulp" is TK-BigGulp Jeff is RapierOne. Our local Garrison armorer is Michael Culp @TK1636, and he is extremely knowledgeable as well. Also, I'm willing to help you out with any questions you have. We look forward to having another "Shiny" amongst our ranks!
  3. I received the ear screws today. Thanks again! I have a question about their placement. If you look at the helmet pictures the left screw is slightly above the trim but the right screw is underneath the trim (not visible unless you pull the trim down a bit). What is the correct position for these screws. Thank you!

  5. Wow! Thank you everyone for your kind words and support! I'm very excited to be part of the effort to reach 1000 EIB members by the end of the year! I'm going to start working on the adjustments I need to make for my Centurion application tonight!
  6. Thank you for the kind words, I very much appreciate it! Here are the photos of the corrected teeth. Please let me me know if this works or if I need to remove any more paint. When 15 minutes turns into an hour ...

  8. Just bought a Husky 22 inch Connect Rolling System Tool Box and the wheels are the same size as Husky 37 inch Mobile Job Box and the 35 inch mobile job box. Great idea and THANKS!!  Definitely will need 2 sets in near future.

  9. Thank you! As of right now I have to work on the 2nd and I haven't been able to find someone to cover my shift. I'm still working on it and hoping I can make it to the MS walk.
  10. Thank you! I took a look at your thread, thank you for the tips. I'm not signed up for any troops yet but I hope to find one soon that fits my hectic schedule. In the mean time I'll get to work on my EI application!
  11. Hello! My Anovos ANH Stunt Trooper armor was approved on 10/23/2019 and it's my first costume for the 501st! I'm very excited to join the ranks of the 501st Legion and my local Dune Sea Garrison in Arizona. I ordered my Anovos kit on 12/27/2016 and my BB Day was 01/11/2018. I was slow going on getting my armor put together and it spent months at a time sitting on the back burner to life. I was finally able to get my armor completed September of this year and submit my application to the 501st. It is my intention to apply for EIB and Centurion status. A few thank yous: Thank you @TK1636for inviting me into your home and helping me build my armor. Thank you @ukswrath for your amazingly detailed build thread which I tried to follow closely as possible. Thank you @justjoseph63for the flexible hand plates. Thank you @T-Jayfor the E-11 Completion kit. (I still haven't finished my Doopy Doo's blaster kit however) Thank you @TKittellfor the canvas belt. Thank you @Darman for the neck seal and holster. Thank you @FISD E-11 Reference Teamfor the fantastic E-11 build guide. Thank you @gmrhodes13for the suggestions on how to get my armor up to EIB and Centurion standards. Before: After:

  13. Well I hope the ab/kidney rivets are okay with my GML, he's the one who installed them! However, I am hoping for EIB and Centurion approval. In order to re-position the snaps on the belt I will have to punch new holes in the canvas belt, correct? Or do I use the same method you mentioned for the ab/kidney rivets and fill in the male snaps on the ab plate and drill new holes slightly higher? Tony's build thread was my bible while building my armor. I used it almost exclusively other than the help from my GML. As for the arms, which gap looks correct? I know they are off but I'm not sure which one I need to move. Thank you for the help!
  14. Thank you for the input gmrhodes13. I didn't realize I had that much more work to do! Yikes! I have a question about the belt and side rivets. How do I make adjustments to those pieces since they're already set in place via holes drilled in the armor and belt and set with rivets, snaps etc. Would I just have to get a new belt and start over? I'm not sure how else I could move it up and over.
