Looking great, Ryan!!

Just a tiny dressing issue that might get flagged - the rear closure of your right leg;

If you have another rear photo with this aligned it might avoid delays. ;-)

Also, I believe you’ll need a picture showing the inside of your thigh ammo pack fixings.

Best of luck - can’t see you having many issues for Centurion!! :-)

Hi again Ryan - you have a great looking kit but we do have some requests before we can issue that Centurion Award. 

 

1# The shoulders need to be closer to the chest and there could be several things preventing that as they look to be rotated towards the back and the undersuit seem to be interfering as well. Some tweeking and a new pic should have this sorted.

2# A simple fix but an important one for the highest level - keeping the shoulder bridges at equal lenght.

Those shoulder gaps have been bothering me for quite a while. I believe you are correct about the undersuit, it is a lycra material and does bunch up in that area. AND I HATE IT! I'll try to get something thinner. And the shoulder bridge is an easy fix as well.

 

I'll get working on those changes asap! Thank you!

ALRIGHT FOLKS! Took me a hot second but found some nice Nike "under armor" and it really helped bring those shoulder bells closer to my chest. Also took care of the major oversight of those shoulder bridges.

Hey Ryan

Almost there, but could you post a straight on shot on the left side ammo belt? It could be the angle or you need to do some trimming on the plastic portion as the angled 45 cut should meet the ends of the cloth belt - thanks:salute:

I´m afraid so, based on that pic, cutting just the plastic would make it worse. If you used E-6000 for the button it should be fairly easy, CA glue a bit more work involved. Sorry for not picking this up earlier.

Its all good! Theres a lot to look over. I did use CA glue, but only used little dabs in the corners, so gently sliding a utility blade under there and using a little patience i was able to pop it off. 

 

This looks a bit better. Would afixing the belt in this position pass me for centurion? Just want to make sure before I commit to it.

Hi again Ryan and thank you for your Centurion application - let’s get you approved shall we! 

 

CRL and Centurion Application Requirements

All required photos are now in and, after review, we are pleased to welcome you to Centurion! On behalf of the DO team and myself, many congratulations! :duim: 

 

Other-Armor Fit/Assembly

In this area we discuss areas that could benefit from additional improvement. Note that we consider both text (CRL) and pictures (screen caps/reference images) when reviewing submissions. The suggestions to follow are  what we feel would make your armor shine to it’s absolute best - let’s get to it! 

 

Starting with the helmet and just pushing up the brow trim for a cleaner look. Really nice angle on your ear btw:duim:

As you went for the screen accurate strapping method we just want to point out that the screws used were slotted as seen in the reference image.

Here we suggest to be mindfull when putting on the belt so you can walk away in style.

Last on our list is to lower the left thigh to even out the gap.

There we have it - again congratulations and head on out as a Centurion of the Empire:salute:
