Greetings trooper. Overall a nicely fitting build. Good job.

 

The one EiB specific item I see, I could be wrong as I am looking from my iPhone, is the decals on the bucket do not appears to be ESB style for the tears and tube stripe.

 

I hope I wrong.

 

Here is my esb decal cu for reference

Also. Something seems off with the ear screws, are the Philips head?

 

Good luck sir!

Hell's Bells! You're right, :0Lighten: I'd never once noticed a physical difference between the decals of ANH vs. ESB. I thought the only difference was hand-painted versus ideal! And yeah, the screws are a flathead/philips combo, an Improv I made on the spot when I found the provided screws were not long enough to make it through the helmet. White paint will make the difference less noticeable.

 

As for the decals, I'm going to have to fix those when the money comes up to do so. Man! I'm so close, too.

Keep at it! You're going to feel really proud when you earn that EIB. I know I did!

Alright! I've been out to a few troops, and while I've really had a good time doing these events I still have a desire to go EIB. In a week or two I'm going to order a set of ESB decals from Trooperbay, as well as a few proper flathead screws to replace the current screws in the ears. Looking forward to earning that title!

I've replaced the original screws with flathead screws, I painted the heads white. These look much better and the white paint helps them to not stick out as badly. Next I will order the appropriate decals from Trooperbay, should take place here in a week or so when I get the money.
