  5. Congratulations on your approval David, that's an excellent looking suit of armor! You do The Empire proud!

  7. Thank you so much! I’ve learned quite a lot, gotten some hands on experience with new techniques, and really enjoyed this whole application process from beginning to end. There are many more hoops to jump through on my path to Centurion, and I’m looking forward to each and every one of them. Watching the final positions filled by my fellow Troopers on our march to 1000, my perspective changed from worrying that I wouldn’t make it in time, to accepting that I’d get approved when I got approved, and that the important thing was having a suit of armor I was proud of, and enjoying the journey as well as the destination. That said, I am of a mind with Firedog, I’m overjoyed to be one of the first thousand Expert Infantry! I have a lot of work ahead of me, but rest assured, my Centurion application is on it’s way. Thank you again to the DO staff, and to everyone for your guidance and support along the way. Next stop: Centurion. For The Empire! Cam Blair TK 22020
  8. This countdown to 1000 was a great Idea! Watching that number get higher, reading everyone's excited responses, getting clues of what's to come once we reach 1000, it's all been a lot of fun! Not to mention it has provided some healthy pressure for us to get our applications submitted. Whoever was behind this, well done!
  9. Thank you very much for the quick response, here are the requested photos: Thank you again for the quick reply, let me know if there’s anything else you need, and thank you and everyone following along for all the encouragement! I’m looking forward to joining the lofty ranks of the Expert Infantry! Cam Blair TK 22020
  10. Update: Just wanted to add a couple more photos before the DO’s take a look. First here’s a look at the completed inside of the kidney armor shim. And because I noticed it on a recent submission from a Trooper who also obtained their armor through RS, here’s a look at all four of my thermal detonator screws, painted black.
  11. Thank you! I’ve applied ABS paste to the seam on my kidney armor and I’m gonna go ahead and take this opportunity to move my Han snap outward, as advised. I do need to pull those gaps in between the thighs, the shoulders, and the torso armor. For now I think shortening the elastic loops will help, and losing a little of my extra bulk aught to help with that in the future as well. As for the thighs, the strips are straight, but that photo certainly makes it appear that they are at an angle, it must be the way I’m standing in the photo or the way they fit. I’ll have to see what I can do to adjust that. Thank you for the advice, I fully intend to eventually reach level 3 after I reach level 2 and as staggering as that may seem, each small adjustment is a stepping stone along the way. Thanks Again Troopers, Cam Blair, TK 22020
  12. Update: Alright, so I went ahead and attached a shim to my kidney armor to close the gap on my right side. Also, Goo-Gone was an excellent recommendation for removing the paint from my metal snaps. I scraped the paint off and then cleaned up the snaps so they’d be shiny. If there’s anything else I need to take care of to get me to that EIB, please don’t hesitate to let me know, looking forward to earning that badge! Thank you all in advance for your invaluable help.

  13. Greetings Troopers, So if I'm not mistaken, the requirements for EIB state that as long as the gap between the ab armor and the kidney armor is less that 1/2"(or was it 1/4") than you're good to go. Also it states that a shim may be used to accomplish this effect. For EIB a seam may be visible where the shim meets the kidney armor, but for Centurion there can be no visible seam. I've successfully attached a shim and the gap between my ab and kidney is closed, all I have left is to create some ABS and conceal the seam, but for the sake of getting my EIB approval, would my shim be acceptable in it's current state?
  14. Excellent question, my armor is made by RS Prop Masters in the UK. I was very much concerned with making sure the additional ABS was the right color and the right thickness, so I went directly to the source, contacted RS, explained my situation, and asked if they would sell me a couple cards of ABS. They were kind enough to send them to me free of charge, their customer service is excellent.
  15. Moving forward, Once the E6000 had fully dried, I went ahead and did a test wear to ensure that the gap was closed and the lines were correctly, well, aligned. There are different requirements for shims depending on whether you are seeking EIB (Level 2) or Centurion (Level 3) approval, but moving forward, what remains is to create return edges on the top and bottom of the shim to match the kidney armor, and to conceal with ABS paste the line where the working edge of the kidney armor meets the shim. (And that canvas belt could use a little love too.)
