  2. Hi Sam, 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. Note that we consider both text (CRL) and pictures (screen caps/reference images) when reviewing submissions. Excellent armor Sam, And as I always say, keep in mind that most things are just minor dressing issues. -Well, let's start from the top. This is a very common problem. In a perfect world, the ear screws should go aligned with the rear edge of the Traps(it is mentioned just for your consideration). Reference images -The brow trim is too low(and slightly angled). We are suggesting to rise it up a bit. Your brow trim is sitting lower than ideal for a Stunt TK, and looks more like those worn by Hero TKs. Raising it a bit would give you a much more screen accurate appearance. Stunt reference images Hero reference images -Another very common detail is the next one. The brow trim, should be a bit shorter. The one on the right side is perfect, the left one should be a bit shorter. We recommend you do it little by little so as not to cut too much. Reference images -As seen below, it looks like there is quite a bit of paint on the sides of your right Hovi-tip screen(the left one is perfect!) A few minutes with a razor knife, and fixed!!! Reference images - The paint details on the vocoder could use some definition with a few touch-ups(some non-acetone paint remover, some toothpicks and a few cotton swabs)... Reference images -It looks like you have too much padding on the top of the helmet. For a better overall look should sit a bit lower. This will improve your field of vision as well. Reference images -It looks like your shoulder bridges are too long in the back. You can trim them a little to be more screen accurate. Reference images -Maybe you can raise your biceps a little. It's not that they're misplaced, it's simply to keep them from hitting the edge of the shoulder bells when you extend your arms. -The TD must be centered(a simple dressing issue). Also, it looks like the end of the canvas belt is sticking out a bit. If it's too long, you can trim it a bit (easy fix). Reference images -Button plates should have straight corners, not rounded. Maybe you can sand the edges a little so that the edges are not so rounded. Reference images -We think this rivets are too close to the corner of the ammo belt. This is not affecting you for level 3 but for a more screen accuracy we notice and let you know it for future adjustments. Reference images -The Hengslter counter on the blaster is a bit on an angle compared to screen-used examples. Maybe you can rotate it a little. That would be great! 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. -Your tears lines seem to need a bit more black paint in some areas. Just a few seconds with a permanent marker can do the trick. Reference images -Your forearms appear to be too large (should be reduced by about 1.5 to 2 cm at the top for a sleeker look)...We think that you can adjust their size a bit and this will improve your overall look. Reference images Reference image -We think that the look of the buttons needs to be improved. You can use a toothpick with some (NON ACETONE) paint remover. The buttons do not need to be perfect, but we need them to be a little more rounded. I would suggest using a small "Filbert" style (round end) brush. We are sure you will do a great job. Reference images -L3-The top of the ABS ammo belt should sit at or just above the bottom of the central and vertical abdomen button panels. The belt is almost in place. You just need to raise it a little bit. You can put some velcro behind the AB belt, to prevent it from moving. Reference images -Ab plate is overlapping the kidney armor on both sides. As we see that you are a "thin trooper", maybe you can place some foam inside the armor(if needed), and so, align the sides correctly. Maybe it's just a dressing issue, since we see that in some photos, there is no overlapping(in this case, it is enough to be careful when dressing). Reference images -We have several problems with the TD...Don't worry, they are all easy to fix. First of all, raised "buttons" should ideally face toward the rear (Image 1). Also, your end caps appear to be too wide(image 2).It will be necessary to trim them a little. You will need to move the clips outward too. It also appears that the clips are sitting above the control panel(Image 3). Image 1 Image 2 Image 3 To solve all these issues, this is what we would suggest: 1. Remove the clips and trim off the ends (you can use a hacksaw). 2. Trim end caps. 3. Move the clips to where the ends meet the bottom of the control pad and next to the end caps. . 4. Drill holes in the clips for the new screw position. 5. Re-attach the screws. If you have any doubts, you can see the reference images below(or you can contact the DO's team too). Reference images -Your butt plate is riding out and should be brought in to where it aligns with the kidney plate. I would suggest doing a strapping adjustment to get it closer. You can also add a pair of "V tabs" to the end of the plate and this should make the fix. Reference images - The gaps at the bottom of the rear ridges should be filled or backed with a small square of ABS. Very easy fix . Reference images And that's all Sam. We are sure we will see your application for Centurion soon. If you have any questions, you can contact the DO's team, we will be more than happy to help you... Congratulations!!!

    FISD Memes

    . I love this one especially(obviously)! I think the sense of humor is the best of all our senses...And believe me when I tell you that we DO's feel this way when a review contains many issues to be pointed out(yes, there are moments we do not enjoy, especially when we have to request complicated fixes). I hope that people in general do not see us as the villains in the movie. Thank you for these memes. A little sense of humor after all that we are living, never hurts....
  9. Hello Paul. You are doing a great job!!! As Glen says, lowering your forearms a little will improve your overall look a lot. You could also try to reduce the gap between the tops of the shoulder bells and the shoulder bridges. Reference images Again, congratulations , your armor looks great !!!!
