TK-98695 Requesting ANH Hero Centurion Status (SDS) [473]

Recommended Posts

Hi Dave,


Thanks for your application and for the fixes with your belt and forearms.

 

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

 

Starting from the top, the vocoder paint is nice and clean, but it looks like it could be extended some to better match the shape of the plastic:

Moving on, your right shoulder strap seems to want to sit higher than the left. A hot water bath to curve it more should help it stay in place.

Next, you appear to have a very slight overlap between the back and kidney plates. Not enough to block you from Centurion, but worth double checking the strapping in that area. It could also just be that your back piece sits away from your body a bit, causing it to look like there's an overlap.

Similarly, you appear to have a possible slight overlap between the right side ab and kidney. Ideally these would meet but not overlap.

Next, your butt plate could use some adjustment as well. As pointed out, it's sticking out a bit on the right side, something that could be resolved with some heat bending. Next, the back of your right thigh and the butt plate are running into each other some, so you could consider dropping the thighs just a touch to resolve it. 

 

ACtC-3exvegI5WmVYCbiA3Jt7halCavALSoGhbfQmq8kRwt0OUkcosHnCxbq5so_O2tzjQ4H5dpyMhaVMT1csfzGiw4LxMlaAUB6WwNOQLAR0kRkRenmlYRh8AauGcAnc8fpE9q-d-cNJxRcKx5bxeJ5yjkm5A=w940-h918-no?authuser=1

Moving along, ideally the gap where the lower rear ridge of your thigh armor meets would be filled, or you could simply back it with a small square of ABS so that the black of your undersuit doesn't show through.

 

ACtC-3cxWaXIj9CpxL2wX-q6OYlvohUb7Iqp0h1IFNSlGKHEDjLE-HLudh2cz9mBd87rXRnvch_8QchQo5wFvjJUz3cMtrOwd3AzVvcbvJVtOZId_tq52kRusy6sH6hQhWxC90DZgd__fMSnA1BZ9QUHApql7w=w881-h547-no?authuser=1

Finally, a minor dressing issue. It looks best when your cover strips are aligned, so next time you're getting suited up, just double check the rotation of your shins. Some troopers also add velcro to the front of their boots to keep the shins from rotating or otherwise shifting around.

And that's it! Congratulations again from the entire DO team on reaching Centurion!

OMFG!!!!

YAY!!!!! :dancing-trooper::cantinabandf:

 

I see I already have my tab!

 

Thank you so much for your time and patience Sha. I truly appreciate your help. And thanks to Glen again. He rocks as usual.

 

I will address all the final corrections you mentioned to make Mannie (my TK mannequin nickname) be as close to 100% as possible. Thankfully most of the fixes are easy.

 

As an aside note. Does anyone know?:

a) How many Centurion TK's  there are

b) Where we can get high res Centurion and EI banner pics. My wife wants to make some decals for my case.

 

Thanks again.

 

You made my week!!

 

Cheers

 

Dave

Congratulations Dave, and welcome to centurion.

All you need do is look at your Centurion approval number and that will tell you how many centurions we have FYI it's you are number 473 :)

Trooperbay had some EI and centurion decals but we keep the images in a repository in the IPM section.

Umm, hate to be a pest, and I'm feeling  a bit dense at the moment, but I don't see where my Centurion and EI approval numbers are located.

And where is the IPM? Searched the forums and can't find it.

My wife purchased a Cricket vinyl cutter for hobbies and I get all the decals I need :)

 

Thanks.

In your application thread titles, centurion is 473.

 

Unfortunately you won't have access to the IPM section. PM sent

Feels great. Still continuing with the minor adjustments recommended to make things better. Repainting the vocoder as I type.
