  1. Hi Shawn, 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. -"Ideally" the corners of the small button panel, should be square and not rounded. Reference images -The hand guards are pretty far from the forearm opening. We believe this is due to the gloves sliding down and bunching at the wrists, pushing the hand guards down and the forearm pieces up. Reference images -We noticed that your thighs are hitting the butt plate. You can check your straps and lower them a little. Reference images -Ideally, the screws of the thermal detonator sit closer to the end of the clips and end closest to the control panel are not rounded. 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. -The vocoder paint could be improved a little for more accuracy. Any NON-ACETONE paint remover, a few Q-tips and tooth picks will help you to fix it. A filbert style brush will help with the top parts. It's easier than you think . Reference images L3- Ideally there no gap between the abdomen and kidney armor. Abdominal and Kidney Plate align horizontally at top. It's really not much of a gap, so, tightening your canvas belt a little will solve the problem. Reference images L3- Three rivets, approximately 5/16"(8mm) diameter, are present on the left side of the abdomen armor. One of the rivets appears to be larger than the others, but a replacement is on it's way to you! Reference images -The outside edges of the large button panel are too wide and will need to be reduced, and squared off for L3. If you need help with this, feel free to contact any of us on the D.O. staff and we will be happy to give you some advice on how to correct it. 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. It will be necessary to raise your ABS belt a bit. One popular fix to this is to add a piece of Velcro to the belt and AB plate to keep it in place. Reference images - The butt plate is too away from your kidney. Some strapping adjustments would help... Reference images Perhaps you can add a "V-tab" to the end of the plate and this may help as well. L3- 3D printed blasters can not contain visible print lines, and must be sanded smooth for a more realistic appearance. We have a challenging issue here but we have confidence that you can do it!. Some parts of the Blaster will definitely need to be sanded down and repainted for Centurion. You can use a Primer/Filler" like this (below). It will still need some sanding, but it really helps! Reference images And that's it, trooper. Thanks you for your patience Shawn. You have a great armor. I look forward to seeing your centurion application soon. Any questions you have, we are here to help!!!! ***************************************************************************************************************************************************
  2. Hello Richard!!! Thanks for your EIB app!!! .Your armor looks awesome. One of us will be with you shortly. Thanks.
  3. Hello Alexander!!! Welcome to the First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment.
  4. Hi Shawn...Could you please post a close photo of your thigh ammo belt (both sides, inside, to see the rivet type) and one photo of the rivets(6, left side of your Ab/Kidney) ?. Like This: By the way, excellent armor Shawn!!!
  5. Hi Cody, 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. -The brow trim is too low. 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 -Also, the brow trim, should be a bit shorter, (do it little by little so as not to cut too much). Reference images -Looking to the right side of Ab section, Ab plate is overlapping the kidney armor. (Adjusting the strapping may solve this issue). Reference images -We suggest you to lower your fore arms so the gaps are a little more even between the wrist and hand plate and the bicep and top of fore arms. -The TD must be centered. If not positioned correctly, the thermal detonator can explode !!! Reference images -Some new paint on the ab/kidney rivets is an easy fix and should take you about 5 minutes. Reference image -Moving down to the belt, we suggest you cut all those hanging threads. The armor will shine more with that haircut. Reference images -We think this rivets are too close to the corner of the ammo belt (too big too). 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 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. -All the recess area should be painted, in both sides of the helmet. Reference images -We have a challenging issue here, but we have confidence that you can do it!. The tube stripes are too far away from the cheek. As per the CRL, the tube stripes should be "approximately a pencil width" from the cheek. As seen below, yours are bit too far away. Reference images -The plastic shoulder straps need to be held down in the back via a white elastic band to the white fabric that connects/bridges the chest and back piece. Reference images -For Centurion level, the tops of the shoulder bells need to be a lot closer to the shoulder bridges. This is a fairly easy fix by shortening the straps that hold the shoulder bell on. Reference Images -The top of the ABS ammo belt should sit at or just above the bottom of the central and vertical abdomen button panels. Add a piece of Velcro to the belt and AB plate to keep it in place(Easy fix ). Reference images -The buttons on the canvas belt are too close to the edge, and the corners of the plastic ammo belt shall be trimmed at a 45 degree angle that meets the outer edge of the cloth belt. Reference images -Drop boxes are vertically aligned with the end of the ammo belt with minimal gap between belt and box.(see reference images in the previous point). -The belt should be turned a little to the left. Reference images -For L3, the gaps at the bottom of the thighs should be filled or backed with a small square of ABS. Reference images -The Hengslter counter on the blaster is a bit far back compared to screen-used examples. Reference images And that's it, trooper. Congratulations!!! You have a great armor, and we have complete faith that you can address the above issues. After that, I look forward to seeing your submission for Centurion!!! And remember, we are here to help!
  6. Hello Cody and thanks for your patience!!! Before we can move you along we need an easy fix... -Frown is painted gray and does not leave the teeth area It appears that your frown paint needs a little cleanup. Using an acetone-free remover on a toothpick could be a good solution for the teeth. You're almost there Cody!!!
  7. Hi Mark, thanks for your EIB app!!! Meanwhile one of us is assigned to your review , can you add one additional photo? -Back-lit shot showing lens color(helmet).
  8. Congratulations Natalie!!!. Welcome to FISD
  9. I am very impressed with the quality of your armor. I am happy to hear that you are going to request EIB and Centurion as soon as you get basic approval . Congratulations Luke!!! .

  11. Hi Cody. Thank you for your EIB app. One of us will be with you shortly.
  12. Hello, and welcome to FISD, Yamagat !!! This thread maybe can help you: If you have any question, we are here to help!!!
  13. Great work again Richard!!! Only as a suggestion(and as Mario commented.....), those little rotations, will make everything look better from the back as well.
  14. Hello Scott. Welcome to FISD!!! If you have any question, we are here to help ,
  15. Hi Gretchen!!! Normally a white elastic helps a lot to keep the shoulder straps down(100% accurate).
  16. Hi Yiyo. Viewing all the costumes you have made (SL TLJ Kylo Ren / DZ Wampa / TX First Order Flametrooper / SL Palpatine, and your WIPS: ANH Darth Vader / Cad Bane / Imperial Transport Officer / TK Shocktrooper / TK Mandalorian Incinerator / Imperial combat assault transport driver), I am looking forward to seeing your WIP of this Remnant Incinerator. And maybe one day troop next to you !!!
  17. Great news Caleb!!! Although, I think your submission will be of the easy ones. You work hard and well ... Taking care of the details... It will be a pleasure to see the Centurion badge under your "location".
  18. Thanks!!!! A pleasure to work with you and Mario. A lot of work ahead, I know. But I will do my best to make the detachment much bigger (if possible). I know that you will support me, and if I need help, you will be there (as it has been since the day I registered at the Detachment ), so I am not worried. Thank you brothers.
  19. Very good work. I love to see how well organized you have your workshop.. A lot of work ahead, but I see you are very excited, and for you, it will not be a problem. Keep us updated
  20. Hello Thomas. This thread may be helpful.
  21. Hello Gracie!!! Well, I use the discs that you can see in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUkRtw_xqcw&t=30s I have used the plastic ones and the metal ones to cut ABS, both work fine and never broke. I only use them to remove the excess. For delicate areas, it is better to use round-tipped scissors or similar. This thread can help you too (Supply list for your OT TK build ....):
  22. Excellent work and excellent attitude Richard... That's the way...
  23. Love it!!!. Cutout design, glitter, the colours... Thank you all for making this possible. !!!!!!!!
