  1. You have a TON of return edges you can take off. if you can post pics with your arms up, so we can see whats going on
  2. you will, no problem. Be sure to upload photos as much as possible. weather its showing off, or needing help, ask, and upload! give us something to look at!!!
  3. ok STOP!!! before trimming anything. Please go and look at the EIB and Centurion approved post. These kits have already met basic approval and are now in the upper approval levels. This will allow you to see where trimming can be done. And great job with Imgur, photos came up perfect.
  4. As far as pre approval goes, you should have no problem. You have a few tiny issues with your cover strip length on your forearms, but that's for higher level clearance. You shouldn't have a problem with basic approval I am curious though, do you have any issues with walking? seems like your legs are built really close together. might have some mobility issues. and just make sure when you send in your approval photos, that the backs of your legs line up at the tops and bottoms of each armor piece
  5. yep, If you search "how to upload photos" I think it will take you to the tutorial page, but I use Imgur which is a host sight for photos, super easy to use, and you copy and paste the links to your photos. this allows you to upload as many photos as needed.
  6. I don't think you need to paint at all for hydro dipping do you? I have seen people put all kinds of stuff through hydro dip and nothing looked "prepped" other than cleaned.
  7. It really comes down to price with people. I don't see a reason why they wouldn't, as I see it all the time where people "Kit bash" lol. Have helmets from one maker and the armor of another. You should have no problem selling it like that. Put it out to as many people as possible and you should do fine
  8. I don't think they need to be remade. I am thinking that if you straighten the clips, then roll the TD out the right location it might help. then just cut the excess off the end. Again, this is probably more of a Centurion issue, but might as well fix it now, that way when your approved EIB, you can just turn around and submit for Centurion *side note, I keep pushing people to apply Centurion when I haven't yet lol. My costume is ready, just been so busy with other projects HAHA! maybe ill kit up tonight and submit!!!
  9. This has been a correction requested of MANY of other centurion applications. But Ill let @justjoseph63 or @ukswrath correct you. They have denied applications (or requested fixes on) for the paint on the helmet being too thick, too thin, or not matching all around, none of which are in the CRL. I was only trying to help and speed up your approval. Good luck to you and I expect you will be notified soon of any findings.
  10. Im curious to know, did you make the clips yourself or buy them? The reason I ask is its still too far "rolled" forward. Again this may be a centurion issue, but where you "button" is, is too far back, it should be located where the raised areas are. if you google "Stormtrooper Thermal Detonator" one of the first pictures of stormtroopers will show you what im talking about. You should really be able to see the clips when its mounted to your belt, and the round "button" should sit at the "top" of the TD and the ridge area pointing outward towards the person taken the photo, or parallel to the ground, if that makes sense.
  11. Your mic tips need to be painted white You need a bucket off photo and your link doesn't lead back to your EIB submission but the submission page itself
  12. so I have Snaps on my holster. really just looked at photos to see where to place it. If ANH its on the left, ESB its on the right. Chicago screws are the way to go as they are the most accurate, and I will be switching mine. I went with a Hyperfirm from HFx and LOVE it. light weight for trooping and can take a beating. No lights and sound as its not really needed. I just always tell people I left my "real" one at home for safety reasons. For fans and earing assist, you can check out Ukswrath, he makes kits and they work awesome!
  13. Oh man that looks great! and you should notice that when you kit up, you have some more "comfort" down there and it will pull your butt just a little tighter. Great job on rounding those corners too, some forget to do that but are quickly reminded when the kit up lol
  14. Gonna need a little help from you here, what do you mean "straight side" as far as return edges go, (and this goes for your entire build), the only return edge that has a REQUIREMENT is the wrist side of the forearm, it CAN NOT be there. Everything else will be determined by fitment and personal comfort. I took most my return edges off of everything but most of the torso parts and upper shins. One thing to think about please before you are done with the fitment of your wrist, remember or think about how your going to suit up: 1) are you going to put your gloves on before or after the arms? 2) how are you going to secure your hand plates, secure to the glove or worn with an elastic strap if your going for Centurion, the latex hand plates must be secured directly to the glove, will you be able to fit that on after you get your forearms on, or do you want to put that on then slide the forearms over them, you will need to account for that with fitment. some have made theirs a little bigger to account for this, and place foam on the inside to keep them tight once the are one. you will have an elastic band the runs from the bicep to the forearm that will prevent it from rotation, so that's not an issue.
  15. Something I would suggest, is to look over the other EIB and Centurion post, The ones that got approved, and make sure yours follows what they have. your doing great, its just little things that can go unnoticed but will be spotted by a 3rd party here. its great, because we as the builder think we have everything, and someone else will spot something that was overlooked. Kind of like reading your own material. you know what its supposed to look like so you may miss something. but someone with "fresh eyes" will find out the issues and help
  16. Ok. so where the red circle is, that all should come off and the snaps moved to where the green dots are. Hope this helps. Also, if you need some room or comfort you can take the return edge off the butt plate completely if you want. if its not causing an issue then you can leave it. Hope this helps
  17. Give me a minute. Let me see if I can move the pic into paint on draw on it
  18. Glad to see some have gotten their Anogross kits. (sorry that company just gets to me). I cant wait to see you on the front lines fighting along side us! we will get you through this and you will be a shiny before you know it. As far as pictures go, I used Imgur, it works great
  19. Are you a 501st member? if so, go request 501st and stormtrooper access to the forum, will open up some more doors for you
  20. Only thing I can see that might be a pain, is that you painted before you cut out the eyes. May end up pulling a lot of the paint off when you cut, unless you use an exacto and cut through that way. As far as trimming the helmet goes, if you look really close, you can see there is a "valley" where you can cut. look at reference photos will help to know exactly where to take it off. should be right at the Vocoder and straight across with quick curves. Again, check reference photos though, the hole shouldn't be big enough to put straight on your head, unless your head is really tiny. But should be able to go on side ways, and "twist" into place. As far as the look of that helmet, looks normal for ATA. A buddy of mine that is currently working on an ATA bucket looks like that. I don't like it, but I believe that is kinda how the originals looked. (ATA might be pulled from the original, but don't quote me on that)
