Krisko720’s TLJ FOTK Officer Build

Recommended Posts

No big updates as I’m still waiting on a few items. But my boots finally arrived from Gio!

Only took a month total. I ordered Saturday 10/26, he emailed me on Monday 10/28 asking my measurements. And then emailed me on 11/21 asking to confirm my shipping info.

You can definitely tell they’re handmade. There is a little wiggle room, but seeing how they’re pretty flat and stiff, I’ll probably add some comfy insoles.

In other news.. KB Props seems to be holding up to their promises and are shipping out BBBs starting next week! Should be arriving second week of December or so.

Haven’t heard anything from 3-D Props yet on my blasters, but I know he’s super slammed with orders.

Also need to talk with Geeky Pink about her gaskets.. she’s probably busy catching up on orders as well. Do you guys recommend Armor first and then order gaskets to fit? Or order the gaskets first? I know she has measurement forms for both.

Most importantly the gaskets need to fit you so you can move ahead with getting them produced.

Neck Seal: Recessed or Straight Across?

 

Gaskets: Semi-Sheen or Latex?

 

Gaskets: Velcro or No Velcro?

 

Should I get the under harness she makes? It says it’s just for attaching the gaskets to vest.

 

I guess I’m lost on how it’s different from how the harnesses work for the armor. Are there two different harnesses? I was planning on using a tactical vest that I’ve seen a few of the guys wear.

I made my own H harness purely to suspend thighs as I didn’t want the weight of the thighs pulling down the ab.

I’m dumb.. I’m not even following CRL. Centurion requires rubber. Any leads on who has rubber? I’m guessing Imperial Gaskets?

 

My searches are only pulling up stuff from 2016 and 2017 for his gaskets. And then there’s a link to a page I can’t view on FISD. Can’t find anything in terms of anyone selling rubber..

 

I can see why not many go that route, kinda looks like a pain and I’m sure they’re hot and hinder movement.

 

Question: Are you required to stay in Centurion approved gear to troop if you are going for that level? If not, when would you actually, if ever, need to gear up in appropriate level items?

Yeah, seems like the only one that made them. I suppose I can go with cloth until I find some.

To quote Yoda...”No... there is another”

I’ll find the info and share, if they’re still doing them.

So I’ve been digging around looking at riot shields.. is it me or are there two different versions?

One like what KB Props sells which is more square and one like what 850 Armor Works sells which is more rectangle. I see both of these on toys and in reference photos.. what’s the difference?

The CRL seems to have been photographed using the more square one.

Is either acceptable since it’s still rectangular per CRL specifications?

When the CRL was implemented there was only one vendor for the riot shield, then when more screen accurate images became available more suppliers came up with the rectangle design, I don't think you would have any issues with approval even with the CRL image but even if you did you could supply references to your GML or direct them to FISD's Detachment Leader ;)

The CRL for the officer’s MP40 ammo pouch says no angled corners on flaps..

 

The ones I’m seeing online quite a bit have a massive angle taken off the flaps. Which is what I think is being referenced here.

I found this pouch from Imperial Boots. It’s almost perfect. Is that slightly rounded corner of the flap acceptable? I’ve emailed them to ask if they can make these in a totally flat bottomed flap. Not sure if these are made in-house or not. Worst case scenario I can trim the flap and have the strap resewn a bit higher.

Really up to your GML for basic approval.

 

I made mine as accurate to screen references as I could, it is quite a bit different from other styles available.

 

Made mine myself, not too hard, I've got to update my thread once I dig out the photos 

This is mine
