Do you know, it's the only one we really have, and is used by ROTJ as well.  If I can get a clean one to replace, I will for the lot of them that need it.

Best I have for the moment

I think I have some leeway there I can work on without getting a new knee ammo strap. I also found a belt face in the stash, I think it was a spare from TM I ordered.

 

I believe that is the original parts for ROTJ kit that came from Paul. He made me a spare one for my ANH Hero, I think I mixed the two up when I went through the kit parts around the time I am starting the build. The ROTJ one is actually 3/4 inch longer on both end. I will replace the whole belt too to make the cover button a little closer to the edges.

 

Added 2 5-16 snaps on both side of the Ab plate already as Randy suggested earlier. I will start a modification thread inside the Stromtrooper Commmander build section to document these modifications as I work.

It's always great when you see an already approved centurion make changes to fit in with new CRL's, looking forward to seeing the updates :duim:

Do not be alarmed, just a bit of reference from a book published by Chronicle Books.

 

I am sorry I should’ve thought of this earlier and add to the discussion. but it just pop into my mind when someone ask about TKC on IOC Facebook group if he’s a commissioned or non-commissioned officer.

 

This is in a book called “Imperial Handbook” back in 2015:

 

https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars®-Imperial-Handbook-Chronicle/dp/1452145288/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1538973252&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=imperial+handbook&dpPl=1&dpID=61weZtrbH4L&ref=plSrch

 

Inside the book there is a Stormtrooper section, and they have this illustration:

 

oUb3UVvX9VGK6AoUtITAP6qPw2WMo6Jm92yBHbJ1

 

As you can see, the ammo knee belt is in classic OT configuration, the armor parts are in ANH style too without ROTJ trim, and appears to be butt-joined.

 

There is also a small illustration of TFU Incinerator Trooper, but the details was nothing like the video visual references, I guess the Artist took liberties on that too. So ultimately we should stick with the video screen captured references I guess.

Nice find but yes I agree we should only be using the game screen references. That fellow has a button in the middle if the belt too ;)

True.  I was at the library yesterday and it's amazing what people will get in a book.  Remember we are aiming for canonical characters.  For example sometimes they'll take an action figure and just paint it via laziness to simplify manufacturing.

I would like to have some wording changed in the CRL, it was brought to my attention in the recent TKC L3 approval of Daphne that ROTJ armor will not allow the thigh ammo strip to sit on top of the lower ridge and cover the front of the ridge (as seen in screen images). Looking at other makes of armor it appears it won't allow the strip to sit there either. The V in the screen image I believe is a lot lower than most armor available, also the raised sections of the ammo strip stop after the screen image example, so it is impossible to replicate the screen images to position the strip to the V section of the thigh.

An example of someone who tried but it sits on an angle when trying to cover the front of the ridge.

I propose the following change to the CRL

From

The thigh ammo belt shall be positioned on top of the lower ridge as seen in official references and is not rounded off like ANH.

To

The thigh ammo belt may be positioned on or above the lower ridge as seen in official references and is not rounded off like ANH.
