Nice work trooper, one thing you could improve, add a little white paint to the hovi tip rims



Good luck with approval

Actually, that was pretty easy, since I had originally painted the outer edges white when I did the helmet (the helmet was the second thing I did in my build ages ago), but was told later that those edges should be black, so I painted over the white.  A few seconds with some sandpaper not only brought out the original white underneath, but it looks more naturally weathered.

Are the T strips on the blaster weathered?  Could just be a trick of the light but they should be flat black with no weathering.    That's all my amateur eye sees.



Nice job and good luck!

Great job, AJ. As with your build thread, this EI app is beautifully presented.


Just a little thing I’d add for future upgrades. Your black pin-striping on your traps and tears is a little thick compared with screen used. You could consider adding a little more grey to thin out the black a little. Here’s an example of what I mean;








Also, looks like your sniper knee has got stuck under your thigh in one of the pics. Common issue. You could consider a little padding at the front of the shin and/or a little padding at the back of the lower thigh. Or, raise the thigh a little if it will go.


See you at EI soon, I’m sure. :-)

Hi A.J and thank you for your EIB application!


I just need you to include two more photos and then we can proceed:salute:

#showing both sides of thigh ammo pack fixing (only see one inside/one outside)

#Other side of sniper knee.

Hi Daniel...


Easy ones first. 


Here's both sides of the Sniper Knee.



And here's both sides of the outer Thigh Ammo Pack rivets.



Now the problematic one.  Since completing my build and taking that single photo of the inner right side Thigh Ammo Pack split rivet I posted up-thread, I've covered up both rivets with caps.  (These are the same caps I used to cover the split rivets joining the Ab/Kidney, described in my build thread.)  These eliminate sharp edges and undersuit snags.  Plus, I think they look spiffy.



Both rivets are the same, and they match the ones at the Ab/Kidney join (they're the ones JustJoseph supplies).  I can pry off that cap on the left side, clean off the E6000 and take a photo, but honestly would rather not since they're the same.  Still, just say the word and I'll pry that sucker off and shoot another photo.

I´m really sorry but I will need you to do that, I just finished looking over your build to try and find a photo of it, you only taking the one explains why I didn´t seem to find one. Again sorry and thank you for your understanding:salute:

  • TheSwede changed the title to TK-51351 requesting ANH Stunt EIB status [AM] (In review)


Hi again A.J. and thank you for your EIB application!

In this review I will ensure that your armor follows the requriments set out in the CRL L2 Expert Infantry Badge and also point out what I can to prepare you for Centurion, should you choose to apply. I hope you do!


Let´s get started shall we!


CRL and EIB Application Requirements:

All required submission photos have been posted and I am very pleased to announce your armor displays all the necessary elements to qualify for ANH Stunt Expert Infantry. On behalf of myself and the entire D.O.Team, Congratulations!


Other-Armor Fit/Assembly:

In this section we review observations made by your fellow troopers and ourselves. Some observations may lead to suggestions to improve the overall look of your armor. 

As we navigate through this review we are going to start with the helmet and work our way down.


You have a very nice and clean-looking kit and an equally clean build-thread to go along with it so the following is just a few things to consider if deciding to go for even higher screen-accuracy - if that is your cup of blue milk:salute:


As mentioned by a fellow Trooper, the black outlines are a bit thick compared to most Movie-helmets. We suggest making them a bit thinner and as they appear to be decals you have a great option to go all in and hand paint:duim:



Moving on to the ears. Though there are variations, most of them had an angle to them as seen in the reference image of our "set for stun -Trooper". 



Looking at the tube stripes and comparing with screen helmets the "end" stripe should have a bit of a lean forward. Just another one of those small details to look into and consider for some extra ANH-magic so we felt it was worth mentioning :)



Turning to the back and the belt we suggest shorten it so it stays hidden behind the TD.



That´s it for this EIB Review - moving along!


Centurion Requirements:

In this section we prepare you for Centurion.  More photos may be requested in the future that allow us to make better decisions on possible adjustment etc. If there are any areas of concern they will be discussed here.


Because Centurion photos show much more detail than EIB, items pertaining to Centurion might be seen there and not here. We try to point out all we can from what is seen but the final accuracy is the responsibility of the trooper.

Below you will find areas that will need to be adressed for a future succesfull Centurion Application.


The CRL states there should be minimal gap between the shoulder armor and chest/back plate. Looking att your gaps we want you to try and get them as close to that blue line as possible. Suggested ways to achieve this would be to trim more of the lower return egde of the bells, more ridgid strapping and if possible triming the bells with a curve as seen in the reference image of an original bell from Lucas archives.




For the back plate the CRL states it shall have no, or minimal overlap of the kidney plate. Raising the back plate or lowering the ab-chest/kidney should sort this. Looking at your strapping you could however first try to move them closer to the ends of the back plate to see if that helps and we also suggest you look into what´s causing that uneven overlap. 



All done - head on out as the Empire´s newest Expert Infantry Man:salute:

Thanks guys!  To top everything off, I'm doing my first Troop this weekend.  Can't wait.


I also can't wait to submit for Centurion.  Got those couple things to work on that Daniel noted, and I'll be ready to go.  Got some work assignment stuff to take care of first, but I should have that wrapped up in a week or so and then it's (hopefully) on to Centurion.
