  1. Ok awesome, I was just fixing to go look at it. Its one of those "over the top accurate" things then. No worries. Your looking good so far. cant wait to see the bucket finished. it was the first thing I did to get the "hard part" out of the way. and it was the most scary. I like you was "pooping" myself during the teeth. Luckily for me AM cuts the eyes for you, so I didn't have to worry about too much.
  2. If you are shooting for L3, you may want to look at your ear placement. They should be slanted to the back, and not straight up and down. Cant remember if this is a specific requirement of L3, but I know it has been mentioned before in other submissions
  3. I would definitely recommend a bolt that holds the lens in. This way if anything ever happens and you need to replace them, you can just remove the bolt and replace them. Also, you don't want the lens to completely seal around the eyes, but "float" so to speak. This way there is a way for the eyes to vent and not fog so easily
  4. Wise choice. This way if something is wrong the vendor is also more willing to be able to help you out. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. All your points are good except the last. AM comes pre trimmed from the vendor and is a major selling point. So if this is in fact actual AM armor then weather you buy it here on Ebay or from AM it's going to come trimmed Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks! Been super busy lately with life and the Vader build, but they will get done within a week or so! I'll post the updates here Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. Actually I ended up going with Nylon everywhere but the shoulders and the right side of the torso and the chest to ab plate. it gives me the movement I need. I also built the kit with a little room on the inside.
  8. Unfortunately I'm not sure your timeline is going to work if you want something that is ready to wear. I might be wrong but I think there is only 2 company that make ready to wear and they have years of wait time. You should buy a kit and build it yourself. You could have that done in a few months. Just my advice Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  9. Post some pics!!! stop being so secretive lol. just kidding, if you have a WIP can you link it? would love to see some "NEVER GONNA BE A CRL" work.
  10. The Black series helmet is way more trouble than its work for anything but the R1 (even for R1 I think its too much trouble). Keep your eyes out for a used bucket, or contact the venders, their prices really aren't that bad compared to the BS helmet
  11. I dont think so. But Joseph and the staff are really awesome dealing with these. If there is something missing you will know asap. But from what I know, you should be good to go. It's a busy month for the staff, so it may take some time Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. Sorry could you be a little more clear for me on what your asking? would you be talking about a strap like on a bicycle helmet or something? if so, generally its just a strap of elastic with some type of cup on it, to hold your chin. But if you get a good amount of padding in the helmet, you shouldn't need a strap, unless your head is really small. Do you have a build thread currently? for padding some people use the bicycle helmet padding, some use tactical helmet padding, some use any foam padding they can find lying around. If im not on the right track, maybe post some pics to show what your talking about, that would help a lot!
  13. Good work mark, But we both know your not stopping here at EIB, so the things I am pointing out are more an issue for L3. Need to take the return edge off the wrist side of your forearms, I would pull your arms up more, your biceps seem to be sitting really low. and then the seams of your sides will need to be taken care of. but I don't really see anything that will keep you from EIB. I would also like to add, if you get the chance in the future, get AM armor, man it would fit you so well in the mid section, along with everywhere else, you wont need shims or anything of the sort. then you take that Anovos armor and put it on a mannequin or turn it into a TD. Looks good bud, good luck!
  14. I think you could pull the chest up a little. I almost had both my bridges touching. but yes you will need to trim. Everything else is looking pretty good so far.
  15. Yep, this Velcro is the way to go.
  16. Welcome! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  17. These photos are the same from my EIB submission. I have not gotten to the suggestions yet as I have been busy working on other costumes, and life got in the way. but everything for Centurion should be here. I will say that I will be doing the "extra push" to the things suggested in the EIB submission, but don't feel they will keep me from L3. Name: Jordan Garrison/Squad: Star/Imperial Rough Riders TK-21523 Armor = AM Helmet= AM Blaster= E-11 Hyperfirm Optional Height = 6'1" Weight = 215 Boots = TK Boots Canvas belt = unknown (Second hand) Hand Plates = Justjoseph63 Electronics= Voice Electronics Maker Neck Seal = Darman's Props Holster = Unknown (second hand) Here we go!
  18. Go with AM all the way, I have AM armor and am a bigger trooper, it was nice having to trim the kit down, and not wonder how I was going to shim everything. the armor looks amazing, and is tough! its the way to go with a bigger guy
  19. Also, this should be flat and should come off. That's too much material at the bottom. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  20. Dont. Your gonna end up messing up the ears. Just my two cents. But if you really must, you need to take some off the top circle part to get it to sit closer to the helmet. It's a slippery slop your on. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  21. really? was that part of the original kits? learn something new every day
  22. did you ever get your shins figured out? most times this is something people get wrong, and think they have 2 of the same shin, but they don't. there should be 4 parts, and 2 similar, and the other 2 similar, on of each to each leg if that makes since. one side of the shin will have more curve to it than the other side (same leg)(inside will have more of a curve than the outside of the leg). Posting a pic of what you have exactly would help to pin point better what goes where.
