  1. Congratulations gents and fantastic seeing 501st on set!! Was this filmed on set in LA?
  2. Definitely add the white paint to the hovi tips as well be looking at that. Thx.
  3. Hi Brendan and thank you for your EIB application - In this review I will ensure that your armor follows the requirements set out in the CRL L2 Expert Infantry and also point out what I can to prepare you for Centurion, should you choose to apply. I hope you do! Let´s get started shall we! CRL and EIB Application Requirements: All required submission photos have been posted and I am very pleased to announce your armor displays all the necessary elements to qualify for ANH Stunt Expert Infantry. On behalf of myself and the entire D.O. Staff, congratulations! 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. You have a great looking set of armor and you should be proud! Although at first glance it may seem like a lot, most of my suggestions that follow below are minor. Starting from the helmet and working our way down. Frown - The Paint looks great, however I did notice one tooth has a bit extra paint past the ideal line. If you can kindly clean that one up. thanks Reference: Ears - In this adjustment request, and it might be more of the angle the helmet picture was taken in, were looking for the ear screws to be within a straight line following the edge of the Trap, I have drawn this green line and a reference picture. Really the bottom screw is off a bit. See what you can achieve to get the lower screw closer to the green line. thanks Reference For the Right side, see if you can move the ear back a bit getting it closer to the green line. This will also improve the distance between the Tear Drop and Ear. Reference: The Tube stripes appear to be a bit low. The distance of the tube stripes should be a bit closer to the cheeks. Reference Photo: The Traps on both the Left and Right side of the helmet look a bit small. If possible fill in more area closer to the Green reference lines. Reference Picture Easy amendment. Looks like your forearms are twisted a bit off axis, but that's easy, just twist them back Reference: The 4 button ab plate could definitely use some trimming, and the paint on the buttons is much wider than we like to see. It should ideally be within the edges of the button itself and not extend past the edges. Reference image  For the Belt, see if you can kindly trim off a bit more from the top. On the screen they had little return edge to none. Ive included green reference lines to achieve too. Reference photo: Blaster D Ring - Looks a bit wide. See if you can squeeze it a bit so the overall width matches the reference picture below Reference Picture: The Henglester appears too low and needs to be raised. See about raising it to be within the blue box. Reference Centurion Suggestions:In this section we prepare you for Centurion. More photos may be requested in the future that allow us to make better decisions on possible adjustment etc. If there are any areas of concern they will be discussed here. Because Centurion photos show much more detail than EIB, items pertaining to Centurion might be seen there and not here. We try to point out all we can from what is seen but the final accuracy is the responsibility of the trooper. Although the wire screen mesh is the correct size, the white area underneath will have to be removed for level 3. This should be fairly easy by removing the wire mesh, using a Dremel or razor knife to remove the plastic mesh and then adding the wire one back in. Reference images Shoulder Bells - Look to tighten up the space on the bells distance to the chest. Ideally we would like to see minimal to no space. You may achieve this easily by tightening the strap which holds the bell to the shoulder strap. Reference Pic Looks like the Right and Left belt boxes are off alignment, the left looking better. You may have to re-affix the strap on the rear for that one drop box. The drop boxes are vertically aligned with the end of the ammo belt with minimal gap between belt and box. Reference Photo Besides that all looks Fantastic and Congratulations once more!!! Let us know if you have any questions and or concerns on these. Thanks again Andy
  4. Hey Glen and thanks. So we thinking Commander Prye is going to be a WhiteArmor CRL or some other Detach going to get him?
  5. Hi Brendan, Wont be much longer now and thanks for hanging in there. Andy
  6. Hi @Lars. Thanks for your patience and hold in there. Well be with you very shortly on your submission
  7. Hi Brendan, Time permitting, can you include the following pics: 1) Gloves and handplates 2) Closer pic of the Front Shoulder Straps 3) TD pic with measurement. thx
  8. Hi Brendan. Thanks for your patience. I’ll be doing your review and will take me a few days but just wanted to say you did a great job and should be proud. Hold tight Trooper.
  9. I’ve got a tight fitting / not much room Acolyte Helmet that I’d like to try this fan system in. Only space I have is in the lower neck area so your duct style may work to deliver air comfortably to the front. Hit me up via PM. Will buy one
  10. That thing looks crazy! I like the individual Duct work and can see your fan working well for tight fitting helmets where theres no room. Whats the specs on the fan, voltage and CFM? How much you thinking?
  11. Have a concept pic of your kit? It’s safe to share what you made for yourself
  12. Hi @Galactic Grunt just wondering how your build is coming along or stuck. Let us know as we have plenty of FOs here, myself included that can assist with questions / tips.
