  1. Welcome aboard, good luck with your project !!
  2. Hi Kevin, welcome to FISD. Take a look to the Getting Start section Here you will find so useful info there. cheers
  3. Hi Dylan, I have see it on Ebay and you may want to check this site out. https://www.atthefront.com/
  4. We are Here to Help mate. Ask all questions you need. Remember "Measure twice, cut once"
  5. According to the references, the back of thighs cut should be like this
  6. Hi Shawn, Have you made a Fit test for your torso and thighs ? Why I'm asking is because it would be good to see how everything fits before any cut. For level 3, You can have the best cut but show the black clothes in excess . "more white less black."
  7. 16 spots today !!!!! and counting down . Last approved EIB #984 Martyn Mar2D2 TK17210
  8. Hi Martyn, and thank you for your EIB application! CRL and EIB Application Requirements: All required photos have been submitted, and on behalf of the entire D.O. staff we are pleased to welcome you to the rank of Expert Infantry. Congratulations! Other-Armor Fit/Assembly; In this area we review observations made by your fellow troopers and the DO team. Some observations may lead to suggestions to improve the overall look of your armour. *************************************************** First , let me say you did an outstanding work with your armor, There are always a few details that could use some tweaking, but in looking at the rest of your build all the D.O team is sure that you can deal with and take the next step. So let's start. CRL for Basic level : Mesh may be used behind the frown to obscure the face of the wearer. Something that characterizes Stormtroopers is that we are anonymous. Children and their parents in Trooping see their characters with emotion and do not imagine or think that within that armor there is a fanatic like them. For this reason, we try, by adding a mesh behind the "teeth" of the helmet, to prevent our face from being seen through the holes in them. We are suggesting to add the mesh to your helmet. Reference Images It appears that your left shoulder bridge's rear section is a bit misaligned , a hot water bath could help to bend it to the correct position. Reference Images The fit on the ab-plate is awesome on the right side, but for some reason the left side wants to stick out. It looks like Just a strapping thing , we suggest to check it out. Reference Images Going ahead, this looks like just a dressing issue to take care of, your Thermal Detonator is a bit high, It's supposed to be aligned with your canvas belt. You may want to take a look to your belt clips to sit correctly when putting it on. Reference Images *************************************************** Centurion Requirements; In this section we prepare you for Centurion. Because Centurion photos show more detail than EIB, items pertaining to Centurion might be seen there and not here and additional photos may be required. We try to point out all that we can from what we see, but the final accuracy is the responsibility of the trooper. *************************************************** CRL L3: There should be a minimal gap between the shoulder armor and the chest/back plates. Yours are almost in place , we recommend tightening up the elastic that hold the bells to the shoulder bridges and removing all of the return edges on the bottoms of the bells to reduce those spaces. Reference Images CRL L3 : Ideally there no gap between the abdomen and kidney armor. Your Ab/Kidney left side is almost perfect, not the right that shows a noticeable gap, we think It could be solved simply by shortening the elastic straps. Reference Images CRL L3: A single male snap on the top right corner of the ab plate is present. Moving on we have the Han-snap. Even though It's present, as you can see on the reference photos It should be ideally in the top corner, currently yours is to far in and it's suggested to be moved. Reference Images CRl L3: The top of the ABS ammo belt should sit at or just above the bottom of the central and vertical abdomen button panels. Your ABS Ab belt needs to go up a little to be perfectly, a widely used trick is to place a couple of small strips of Velcro behind belt to ensure it doesn't sag in the front Reference Images CRL L3 : Canvas belt must be firm / sturdy in appearance. No creasing or sagging We suggest to check is a fabric reinforce is needed to avoid the creasing or just a simple stretching it out. Reference Images Congratulations Martyn and hope to see your Centurion application soon !!
  9. Hi Alvin, Welcome to FISD. Good luck with your project !
  10. 17 spots and counting down . Last approved EIB #983 Nora (TK26590) Spain Ole Ole !!
  11. Hi Nora, and thank you for your EIB application! CRL and EIB Application Requirements: Todas la fotos solicitadas han sido aportadas, y en nombre de todo el D.O. Team, nos complace darte la bienvenida al rango de Experto de Infantería. Felicitaciones!! All required photos have been submitted, and on behalf of the entire D.O. staff we are pleased to welcome you to the rank of Expert Infantry. Congratulations! Other-Armor Fit/Assembly; En esta área revisamos los aspectos observados por otros Troopers y el D.O. team. Algunas observaciones serán sugerencias para mejorar la apariencia de tu armadura. In this area we review observations made by your fellow troopers and the DO team. Some observations may lead to suggestions to improve the overall look of your armour. Empecemos por el casco. 1- La "Ceja" de tu casco está un poco baja, es más del tipo "Hero " que ANH como puedes ver en las imágenes de referencia . Es un ajuste que requiere recortar un poco el frente para que la ceja pueda subir. The "Brow trim" of your helmet is a little low, it is more of the "Hero" type than ANH as you can see in the reference images. It is an adjustment that requires a short cut in the front so that the eyebrow can rise. Reference Images 2-El recorte del contorno del ojo derecho está perfecto, el izquierdo tiene una pequeña saliente que le hace ver como entrecerrado, es un ajuste fácil de hacer con un Dremmel o un cutter. Your right eye cut looks perfect, but the left one has a small edge that make it looks like sleepy, this is an easy fix with a Dremmel or cutting tool. Reference Images 3-CRL for Basic level : Mesh may be used behind the frown to obscure the face of the wearer. Algo que caracteriza a los Stormtroopers es que somos anónimos , los niños y adultos en los Trooping ven con emoción a sus personajes y no se imaginan que dentro de esa armadura hay un fanático como ellos. Por esa razón es que procuramos, agregando una malla detrás de los "dientes" del casco, evitar que nuestro rostro sea visto a través de los orificios de los mismos. Por lo anterior sugerimos que agregues una malla a tu casco. Something that characterizes Stormtroopers is that we are anonymous. Children and adults in Trooping see their characters with emotion and do not imagine that within that armor there is a fanatic like them. For this reason, we try, by adding a mesh behind the "teeth" of the helmet, to prevent our face from being seen through the holes in them. We are suggesting to add the mesh to your helmet. Reference Images 4-Idealmente los tornillos de las orejas van alineados con la orilla trasera de los Traps de las sienes. Se menciona acá para tu consideración ya que es un ajuste mas elaborado. Ideally , the ear screws should go aligned with the rear edge of the Traps. It is mentioned here for your consideration as it is a more elaborate setting. Reference Images 5-En tu cuadro de botones de abdomen, en los dos botones inferiores la pintura sobrepasa e borde de estos, un aplicador o mondadientes con algún removedor de pintura, ( que no sea Acetona), resuelven el problema. Looking at your ab buttons panel, on the two lower buttons, the paint goes beyond the edge of these, an applicator or toothpick with some paint remover (other than Acetone), can solve the problem. Reference Images 6-Finalmente, los Rivet de la faja de munición de la pierna , conforme a las referencias deberían ir más centrados, no es algo que te afecte para nivel Centurión pero se hace notar para tu conocimiento y un futuro ajuste Your Thigh ammo pack rivet is a little off according to the references, This is not affecting you for level 3 but for a more screen accuracy we notice and let you know it and for future adjustments Reference Images *************************************************** Centurion Requirements; In this section we prepare you for Centurion. Because Centurion photos show more detail than EIB, items pertaining to Centurion might be seen there and not here and additional photos may be required. We try to point out all that we can from what we see, but the final accuracy is the responsibility of the trooper. Esta sección te preparamos para el nivel Centurión, debido al nivel de detalle requerido, mayor que EIB, hay otros aspectos que se verán luego de manera que podríamos requerir fotos adicionales. Procuramos señalar la mayor cantidad de elementos posible, pero el grado de precisión final es responsabilidad del Trooper. ***************************************************** 1-Parece que la campana del hombro izquierdo es más larga que la del derecho y es más notorio cuando se comparan lado a lado. Para nivel 3 deben ser de la misma medida. It appears that the left shoulder bell is longer than the right one, and this is more apparent as seen in the side by side comparison. For level 3 these should be the same length. Reference Images 2-CRL: Rivets are equally spaced along the depth of the armor and about 10mm from the edge. Los Rivets del costado izquierdo deben estar espaciados tomando en cuenta aprox. 20mm desde el borde superior y 10 mm del borde de retorno de la placa abdominal y lumbar como ves en la imagen de referencia. Este punto parece el más complicado , pero por experiencia te aseguro que se puede hacer. Tendrías que remover los Rivets superiores en ambas placas , rellenar los orificios con pasta ABS, lijar bien y hacer los nuevos a la distancia correcta. de la misma forma, en el FISD podemos ayudarte. The Ab/Kidney rivets must be spaced taking into account approx. 20mm from the upper edge and 10 mm from de return edge of the abdominal and kidney plate as you see in the reference image. This point seems the most difficult , but from my own experience I assure you that it can be done. You would have to remove the upper Rivets on both plates, fill the holes with ABS paste, sand well and make the new ones at the correct distance. As I told you before, we are here to help you. Reference Images 3-CRL: Back plate shall have no, or minimal overlap of the kidney plate. El traslape entre tu placa de espalda y la placa lumbar es bastante notorio, en este caso posiblemente tendrías hacer varios ajustes , entre ellos recortar un poco la parte inferior de la placa de espalda. En el FISD puedes encontrar ayuda y retroalimentación para todos estos aspectos. The overlap between your back and kidney plate is quite noticeable, in this case you could possibly have to make several adjustments, including trimming the lower part of the back plate a bit . At FISD you can find help and feedback for all these aspects. Reference Images 4-CRL: Abdominal and Kidney Plate align horizontally at top. Las placas abdominal y lumbar de tu armadura parecen estar un poco desalineadas, en ocasiones podría tratarse de un simple ajuste de correas elásticas. The Ab and kidney plates of your armor looks a bit misaligned , sometimes it's just a strapping issue that you may want to verify. Reference Images 5-CRL: The top of the ABS ammo belt should sit at or just above the bottom of the central and vertical abdomen button panels Tu cinturón debe subir un poquito para estar perfecto, un truco muy utilizado es poner un par de piezas de velcro detrás y de esta forma evitar que se baje al frente. Your belt needs to go up a little to be perfectly, a widely used trick is to place a couple of small strips of Velcro behind belt to ensure it doesn't sag in the front Reference Images 6-CRL: Drop boxes are vertically aligned with the end of the ammo belt with minimal gap between belt and box Este es uno de los problemas más comunes que vemos, pero es bastante simple de abordar. Los bordes exteriores de los Drop Boxes deben alinearse con el borde exterior del cinturón de ABS. Un poco de E-6000 en la correa interior puede resolver este punto. This is one of the most common issues we see, but is quite simple to address. The outer edges of the drop boxes must align with the outer edge of the ABS belt. Some E-6000 on the inside strap will take care of this. Reference Images 7-Finalmente, las tiras de cubierta de tus pantorrillas deben cerrar justo e el centro, parece que habría que despegarlas y colocarlas correctamente. Finally, the cover strips of your calves should close right in the center, it seems that they would have to be detached and placed correctly. Reference Images Felicitaciones nuevamente Nora, tienes algunos retos por delante pero confiamos en que puedes lograr el siguiente nivel. Centurión.
  12. Don't worry mate, we are here to help and give ideas. I would like to suggest to make the following, (No trimming ) Try overlapping the Ab plate over the Kidney at least 1 or 2 inch each side, tape it and put it on and let see how things fit. This will let you figure out what should happen if you trim the Ab plate. hope my explanation is clear. Cheers
  13. Hi Wolf, welcome to FISD. Great to read you're going to make a dream come true. Good Luck with your armor and looking forward for your photos soon.
