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!
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
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
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.
The Tube stripes appear to be a bit low. The distance of the tube stripes should be a bit closer to the cheeks.
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.
Easy amendment. Looks like your forearms are twisted a bit off axis, but that's easy, just twist them back
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.
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.
Blaster D Ring - Looks a bit wide. See if you can squeeze it a bit so the overall width matches the reference picture below
The Henglester appears too low and needs to be raised. See about raising it to be within the blue box.
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.
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.
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.
Besides that all looks Fantastic and Congratulations once more!!! Let us know if you have any questions and or concerns on these.
