TK-2918 Requesting ESB EIB status[AM][APPROVED] 2nd


Recommended Posts

Finished my new kit in time for C5 - time to see if all the work paid off.

 

The kit is mostly AM but assembled in a non-standard way (used butt-joins with overlay strips versus the standard overlapping seams), and with RT Mod chest/back/straps, and TM helmet & handplates.

The country I'm deployed to has blocked the pics. Lame...

I have the AM armor and was considering doing something like that. How is the color matching? Pretty close? My VT helmet is a similar shade of white so I was thinking of getting some of his parts.

The color match is pretty close, but what's most noticeable between AM and RT Mod is the difference in gloss. AM is extremely glossy, RT not so much. When I get some time, I plan to polish up the RT parts to try to bring them up to a similar gloss level. I know it doesn't help now, but if you refer to my build thread I compare the two side-by-side.

 

I think replacing the chest and back plate makes a real difference in the overall look, and were really the only AM parts I was unhappy about.

I think you look awesome Brian - I don't really notice the color issue really in the photos. The RT chest/back go very well indeed with the AM kit. You look lean, mean, and ready to rumble * :Laser:
