Nice work trooper, just a couple of suggestions.

 

You have a gap to your shoulder bell on your right side, you want to match the left side. I would also advise to angle cut your cover strips at the tops on the forearms, you may find these catch and cause armor bites

zy1DmsN.jpg

 

Belt is covering half the bottom button, should be just under 

8XAwYOf.jpg?1  Nvimd6R.jpg?1  N8trEfM.jpg?1

 

Ideally there should be no large tab on the back of the shoulder straps

Your ab button paint is a little larger, you could also trim the smaller plate a little more

piQI9ER.jpg&key=129f41934b4542e4f88ea1edLSuei4K.jpg?1&key=0c9c5dfc8959a6e5b45e7e

 

There should be ideally be a small amount of plastic on the end of the belt next to the cover button, bit hard to fix that one ;)

For screen accuracy the cod rivet should be brass

biEsg0G.jpgwmUQv99.jpg&key=f866e3ed2361630c90991bbc

 

You have a couple of bits of paint that is just on the gum, also a little wobbly in spots

qRYNQVs.jpgs4AllTr.jpg?1&key=5da7225df89a0f4e9ec12c

 

Vocoder paint is normally a little higher on the second steps

h43ib2h.jpg&key=d0b42a92ab5c24adcbd375b9rmMCj1s.jpg?1&key=bce89d1d10504c36fd3077yjHcKIA.jpg?1&key=12a6cd4cd112e5ebd614bf

 

Looks like you may have some weathering on your T tracks, as these were plastic there shouldn't be any weathering, same for the grip

zEAGS26.jpg&key=821b7200227d47eae96aa30f

 

ATA TD's are very small, you could increase the size of the pipe if you could find some bigger end plates for closer screen accuarcy

Could you also provide the following images:

Both insides connectors thigh ammo strip rivets

Close up side ab/kidney rivets

Front sniper plate

Left side connector thigh ammo strip rivet

 

Once again the  above are just suggestions before the DO's get to work ;) 

 

Good luck with approval

Hi Bryan,

 

Thanks for your patience; we were a bit busy with the hullabaloo around EIB #1000. I'll get back to you soon.

Hi Bryan,

 

Nice work on the fixes from your EIB application. After discussing with the DO team, we'd like you to make a few corrections before we move forward with your application.

 

First, you've improved the shoulder bell gap a lot since your EIB app, but the right one is still a bit larger than we'd like to see. It looks like there's room to bring in the strapping, or it could be a simple dressing issue.

Reference:

Next, a bit of paint cleanup. As mentioned above, your frown paint shouldn't be on the 'gums' of the frown at all. I've indicated the areas I can see, but definitely take a look at the reference photos to see that slightly underpainting the teeth is acceptable. Also, this is something that was visible in your EIB application but I missed it; so I apologize for the oversight.

Finally, we'd still liked you to clean up the ab button paint. Similarly to the frown paint, you can err on the side of underpainting the buttons.

Both of the paint cleanups should be relatively straightforward - just a bit of careful work with some paint thinner or mineral spirits.


Please reach out if we can be of assistance. Have a great weekend!

Hi Bryan,

 

Happy Monday! Taking a closer look at your new photos, I do think you might have overcorrected the belt position from your EIB pics. As Glen stated, it can be a *slight* overlap of the bottom buttons, but your bottom button of the smaller button panel is completely covered, making it look like there are only 3 buttons.


Do you think you could submit a new photo with the belt position slightly adjusted down? You don't need to get completely suited up, just the torso and belt is fine.


This is what we're aiming for:

Thank you!

The shoulder straps are way too long that big tab on the rear shouldnt be present should be small like the rest, the 3 belt cover caps are way oversized I see  

much emphasize on the ab buttons being too big that should equally apply for the belt cover caps and I see no notches on the side of the Kidney plate isn't it required for centurion?

Hi Mark, according to the crl for L3 they're optional.

 

Cut-out notches at the bottom of right and left sides of the Kidney Armor are optional.
If present, each notch is approximately 22 mm tall and the back of the notch ideally is aligned with the front edges of the Posterior Armor plate..

 

Cheers :salute:

Hey trooper,

Looks like you are nearly there - good work. :-)

As you’re going for Centurion, I can’t help but mention another couple of points above and beyond what has been mentioned.

Starting from the top, it looks like you could afford to trim at least 2-3mm out of the eyes. This will aid vision as well as being more screen accurate.
If you chose to do this, note the nice square lines and corners of the originals, rather than the rounded corners you have now.

Also, your tubestripes appear to be on the opposite sides, meaning that the front few stripes point up towards the eyes, not across towards the nose/frown. Here’s more details on that; https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/44755-tube-stripes-anh-stunt-dave-m/

Moving down the the chest, you currently have very thick sides and lower edge. As below in the reference photos, both could be significantly trimmed for a more sleek and screen accurate appearance:

d0ba62aa4c6c9ddee8b3ba672a838dde.png


Your drop boxes are currently very thick. As below, I’d suggest reducing them quite significantly.
Many find that between 12-15mm is good.

Also, the inner part is currently protruding beyond the outer part, exacerbating the thickness.

Best of luck with your application, trooper. :-)

Those belt cap covers are huge and eye soring!  the middle cap cover shouldnt touch the boxes there should actually be space on each side, the cap seems the same size as the belt boxes but I guess its approvable if it wasn't mentioned:(

Look how small the belt cover caps should be, there's actually space on each side of the cap,  IMHO this should be adressed like the AB buttons,  I see many details less obvious than this being scrutanized :(
