  1. @MaskedVengeance Yeah, when I saw this pics, I just noticed that the clip will show white. So I will paint black in the crack.
  2. I somehow missed this thread. I was approved October 28th, 2020. I was approved EIB #1007 November 9th, and Centurion #485 on December 2nd. I look forward to trooping!
  3. I added this adjustment to my Centurion thread, but it should go here too: Just an update, I made the couple of finishing touches that were recommended in my Centurion approval as "nice to have" additions after it was approved. First up was trimming the thigh and cod area to give it a bit more black, and probably a bit less chafing on a parade troop: Updated. I can always trim more, but trying this for now: And then the classic "trooper butt" issue: @gmrhodes13 had a simple solution, and I decided to ma

I can always trim more, but trying this for now: And then the classic "trooper butt" issue: @gmrhodes13 had a simple solution, and I decided to make it. He suggested they go out on the sides, but for how my armor was popping straight back, I found the ideal location was more toward the 1/3 points. I took some card stock to figure out
  5. Oh, and feel free to PM me if you have questions, I just got my AM 4.5 to Centurion. The kit is good. The main things to adjust now are the Thermal Detonator (the clips are a bit long, and the holes are not as close to the ends, the included screws are a bit too big, and the caps are a bit wide). It was way harder to fix after, but not impossible. For Centurion, the helmet decals that come with it have a bit thick or off-center black outlines, and I wish I had painted the traps and tears from the start. A.J.'s build was really good to follow for a lot of nice solutions from a very precise buil
  6. I use Imgur from my Mac and iPhone for all of my builds (it's a free site for both). Use the phone app to upload to Imgur right from your phone (set it to private and you can post them here, but they won't be searchable in their feed, and you don't have to title them). Then for whatever reason, I can't get the BBCode on the phone, but on each image on the Imgur in your images, click it, and copy the BBCode and paste it into your post. It won't show while writing your post, but will show after you hit "Submit Reply". Super easy. And if people want to see a bigger version, clicking on it takes t
  7. Forgot to update. The final thing I had to change was to remove the wrist return to totally flat, which I did: Before: After: And I was approved for Centurion, number 485! And one final thing, I took some extra action pics, and some in the same light of a Black Series 6" K-2SO droid, to photo edit into this pic:
  8. @justjoseph63 I believe this may be the wrong link pasted in.
  9. @gmrhodes13 Wow, thanks, that is exactly what I was looking for. So as it stands, with: 5,649 total, and 1,011 EIB and 485 Centurion, that makes (rounding) about: 18% of troopers go on to reach Expert Infantry 8.5% attain Centurion. (real numbers 17.8969% for EIB, and 8.5856% for Centurion with today's count). Thanks for helping me put my achievement in context, and also amazing to see how popular the TK category is Legion-wide!
  10. Thanks @justjoseph63, I was glad to make it in time. I had a question for you or anyone else, how many standard approved troopers are there. To put in another way, once we reach 500, is there a percentage we can calculate of troopers that make it to Centurion? Same question for EIB. I just can't find a place where those sorts of statistics are (especially because I believe this includes all of the FISD costumes).

  12. Wow, thanks everyone! I am so excited to have reached this milestone. A lot of great help along the way, and I look forward to helping out in turn, especially once local armor parties start up again. @gmrhodes13 I think I understand that clip, and that it is attached just on the posterior plate, that makes sense. Is there a forum post about it more (like material, size, and how many mounts) you can point me to?
  13. It was pointed out that the wrist openings had still a little curve of the return remaining: They should be totally flat, so I brought out the Dremel and sand paper and removed the last residual return:
  14. I realized I had taken a few other photos during construction that my be pertinent to this application: Filled lower thigh gaps ( I actually liked it so much for strength and aesthetics, I filled all of my edge gaps on the tops and bottoms of the thighs, biceps, etc): Inside ab split rivets (coated the sharper edges with white E6000 to prevent snags): Let me know if there are any other pics needed
