Hi Mark,

 

Hopefully a moderator can move your thread over to the correct sub-forum under Request TK Pre-Approval.

 

Moving on, here is some feedback.

 

Regarding getting your basic approval:

  • From what I can see here the only thing that will be an issue with basic approval is the rivets on the holster. Four rivets for Hero, two for Stunt. Your helmet is a Stunt so removing the upper rivets is the easiest way to address this. Depending on how the belt looks after you remove them, it is possible you may need a new canvas belt. Getting a sturdy one will help avoid those folds you can see in some Anovos canvas belts too.

General suggestions to improve your overall look:

  • Your thighs could definitely come up quite a bit. If you are able to wear them higher definitely do so. This not only looks better, but will give you greater mobility.
  • I think that your biceps could be worn a little higher and your shoulder bells could come in a little closer to the biceps. There's some difference in how much black is showing between parts for both your arms.
  • Your drop boxes could be secured to stay at the ends of the ABS belt (this is a higher level requirement but is easy to do). Your belt could also be worn just a little higher, overlapping the large button plate slightly.
  • Your rivets on the left side of the ab and kidney are not aligning. Can't see how you've secured these with the shim, but ideally they should be lined up and not be staggered.
  • Your right side closure of the ab and kdiney are not lining up in your photo of the side. Typically the top of the kidney and ab will line up though the shim may be making this difficult.
  • You could remove some of the flashing from the eyes (Anovos is known for leaving a bit too much in there) and extend the frown a bit past the undrilled holes.

I know these look like a lot of criticisms, but they are meant to be constructive and in a lot of cases, they are fairly easy. Great job on getting your shoulder bells touching the shoulder bridges and pretty minimal gap between the back plate and kidney plate. If you need more detailed suggestions on how to address something, let us know! We're here to help you look your best. Basic is just a small step away and then if you want to shoot for higher accuracy, we are ready to help you with that as well!

They were a little sharp and digging below my belt line. Perhaps I could've trimmed them a little differently.

On the helmet. I thought that it would be a fun project to fix it up and go for EIB. In some pictures you can really see that extra flashing. I feel pretty comfortable in trying to trim those now. This is my first build so I was nervous during the whole process.
