Nice work, looks like your cod is a little low, the ab appears to be coming out under your chest plate, I would try lifting the ab/cod higher, would give you more room at the top of the thighs

Shoulder bells at the bottom are sitting outwards a little, you could try tightening the strapping to see if they will pull in a little more.

You could probably cut the paint down a little on your ab buttons too, look a little large

No major issues I think you will be fine

Hi Anthony, looking good.  

 

I would like to make some suggestions for  better look and if you're planning to go for higher levels , as we would like to see you into the EIB 1000.

 

1- You can reduce the shoulder gap by shortening the straps.

2-  your Chest armor should overlap the Ab section, You can move the ab section upwards an inch to solve this issue.

3- Your Ab belt should  go up a little to be perfect, a widely used trick is to place a couple of small strips of Velcro behind  belt to ensure it doesn't sag in the front

4- This is just a dressing issue , the thigh's cover strips must align with the shins ones.

Cheers.

Hello Anthony, Nice looking set of armor you've got there.  One thing I noticed in addition what @gmrhodes13 and @TKSpartan recommended is that you've got your hand plates on the wrong hands. Make sure you swap those when you take your official approval photos!

Ok, hows this for the abdominal section overlap? I had to scrap the bracket system, it wasn't working. I'm using Velcro for now

Looks much better and you have clearance at the top of the thighs :duim:

Ok, I updated what was suggested, let me know what you guys think.

 

Personally, I think I need to trim the shoulder bells. Unless they are supposed to jut out like that, but I legitimately cannot get them any closer to the chest, and I may just have to trim the sides so they come in more. Sound like a good idea?

Left side fits well

Right side fits well until I lift my arms, then this happens. I think I'll just add support straps to help keep it together.

I remembered the Thermal Detonator this time LOL

I submitted my 501st application today, so wish me luck! Thanks all for the suggestions.

Good look Anthony, great work with the fixes.   and for the shoulder bells, shortening the internal elastic  may help.

 

Cheers and looking forward for your TK ID  soon.!! :salute:

Looking good, just remember to line up the thighs and shins and don’t forget the TD!
