Notes on this Centurion submission
Some pictures were from my EIB submission, I am providing the correct images of relevant changes. For those who commented on the images I incorrectly included, please accept my apologies.
Items requiring correction or suggested changes based on DO and expert feedback from EIB submission are titled in green.
Many thanks to the DOs and others for your patience with the changes!
It was requested that I submit new full body shots with the modifications made.
The shoulder bells were brought closer to the torso as shown in the front and back shots.
The difference in the appearance of the belt height is due to the angle of the photograph compared to the photo showing the correction.
Corrected Shoulder Bells
Shoulder bells were too far out as non-snapped end was glued-in-place. The reference image was provided for illustration.
Installed Velcro in bells for adjustment as needed, see results in full body shots, above.
Corrected Ab Plates
Requirement for the large ab plate was that it have an obvious border edge, unrounded at the corners, that did not extend past the protruding base. The reference image below was provided. I prepared a new large button plate rather than try to correct the old one.
It was suggested that the small ab button plate be trimmed as in the reference image. I did so.
Corrected Belt Position
The ammo belt needed to be brought up in the center as per the reference image.
I utilized the recommended Velcro strategy to prevent sag in the center of the belt as shown below.
Correction of the Sniper Plate
The sniper plate had excess material at the top edge, which is not screen accurate; the following images provided suggested reference.
I cut the sniper plate as indicated to conform to the suggested trim lines and reference images.
Correction of the Thigh Ammo Belt
The top edges were rounded, which is not screen accurate.
The curved edge at the bottom was shown to not be screen accurate as the curve was too pronounced.
Reference images were provided as below.
Proportional analysis of the photo was done and a new ammo thigh belt was fashioned to conform to those ratios. The angle is moderately rounded and is not a straight cut.
Correction of the Helmet
For Centurion, it was suggested that I raise the brow on the helmet as shown below with the yellow markings.
I have redone this part of the helmet as shown below. This suggestion made a significant impact on the look of the armor!

Thanks to everyone who provided valuable feedback on the changes to make to achieve EIB and the improvements I would need to make to apply for Centurion. Thank you for the patience with me as I got photos ready in the time of COVID-19. It was not the easiest to do.
Thank you to the DOs for your consideration with this application!
