    Nearly forgot....

    Just a quick few notes from the OP. I know my ammo belt is sitting low in front below the ab button plate in the pics. Sometimes it's right sometimes it's not. I failed to adjust it prior to the photos. At any rate I'm going to use velcro sewn to the belt to fix that reliably. Hopefully that doesn't distract from my horribly painted ab buttons and the slightly rounded corners.  Otherwise I hope to throw myself on the mercy of the FISD court and hopefully the thread turns out ok with the required pics.

Hi Ed, and thank you for your EIB application.  One of us will be with you shortly.

 

Meanwhile, there are some additional photos that we need you to add:

 

1-  close photo of your Ab to kidney connection  *left side to see the 3  rivets.

 

2- Close photo of your thigh ammo belt  inside and outside , left and right to see the rivets attachment

 

CRL L2 :  Thigh ammo belt is attached to thigh with a solid head rivet, painted white, in the upper corner and fastened to the lower thigh ridge.
The rivets used shall be single cap, double cap or split rivets. No pop rivets allowed.
Rivet should be approximately 5/16" (8mm) in diameter (exterior).

 

3- Close photo of your Snipper knee  (both sides) to see the alignment.  

 

CRL L2 : Sniper knee plate must be aligned with the ridges on the shin.
Sniper knee plate must not have visible rivets or fasteners attaching it to the shin.

 

Note: Could you please post (remove)  just only  one  of the Blasters you want to apply for EIB ?

 

Any additional photo or fix will be requested by the assigned D.O.

 

Thanks Trooper  :salute:

Nice work trooper, a couple of things you may want to address before the DO's get to work.

 

Your butt plate is overlapping your kidney and belt, belt boxes are not aligned with the end of the belt, ab plate is also overlapping your kidney plate

w2f1PzP.jpg&key=76337fa264dc45332b1d3392

 

You may want to drop your thighs a little as they are hitting on the rear. Your backplate is also overlapping the kidney.

vbWadp4.jpg&key=c8984e676b7e07107a571aa2

 

You may have a small amount of paint on your gums which you might want to remove. Using a toothpick is an easy way of removing excess paint.

You don't seem to have much gap between the caps and control plate. Caps should be @3/4" (19mm)

PxX1ikh.jpg&key=21bc1b6fa3f20aa852da74d5TD%2520measurements.jpg&key=14576a89d060

 

Ab plates should not have rounded corners

 LSuei4K.jpg?1   JViLwBX.jpg?1

 

Ideally your thigh ammo strip top edge should align with the top of the lower ridge and does not have a rounded top corners

Good luck with approval

Thanks for the feed back. The thighs sitting high was apparently pushing everything else up. Which is no big deal because I can change my thigh height pretty easily because the strapping holding them up is completely adjustable. I was worried about the frown teeth having too much grey after I looked at a couple over submissions, but I'm hoping it will be tolerable if not I'll try scraping some off, which sounds easier than adding white.  I still want to add velcro to the ab and belt to keep it in place. Unfortunately my camera man doesn't know any of the finer details and seemed to think I looked good after looking me over.  I'm not sure what I'll do about the thermal detonator and will just wait till the DO's advise.

Hi Ed,

 

Before we can proceed with your app, Additional to the requested photos in my last message, It would be necessary to make a small fix to the frown paint of your helmet.

 

This is a Basic level requirement and an easy fix. you can use a toothpick and some paint remover (No Acetone) or a cutter,  or with more precision hands,   a pointed or sharp tool. 

 

Crl:  Frown is painted gray and does not leave the teeth area...

                                                                                                                                      Reference  Images

Hi Ed , and thank you for your EIB application! 

 

CRL and EIB Application Requirements:

All required photos have been submitted, and on behalf of the entire D.O. staff we are pleased to welcome you to the rank of Expert Infantry.  Congratulations!  :salute:

 

Other-Armor Fit/Assembly;

In this area we review observations made by your fellow troopers and the DO team. Some observations may lead to suggestions to improve the overall look of your armour. 

                                                                                   

                                                                                 ***************************************************

 

Let's start from top:

 

 

The "Brow trim" of your helmet is a little low, it is more of the "Hero" type than ANH as you can see in the reference images. If you would like to have that "Stunt " looking helmet, we suggest to bring it up a bit.

 

                                                                                                                                                                  Reference Images

 

ft6Fzb3.jpg                 iu7Ibyv.jpg?1 

 

 

For L2, the fall of tube strips tops ideally lean toward the front as you can see in the reference photos. We mention this here for you to consider a future fix.

                

 

                                                                                                                                                                                      Reference Images

 

    HACuo2I.jpg?1                                                                     5wKJrsD.jpg?1

 

   pTQMDq2.jpg?3                                     nH0GmII.png?1                                                                    

 

 

 

 

It seems like the cover strips of your forearms are a bit larger and exceeds your forearms edges. Just a couple of minute of trimming will make the deal. 

 

   

                                                                                                                                                                                         Reference Images

This looks like just a dressing issue, take a look to your Chest/Abdomen strapping to aligning them better. easy fix.!  

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                                                                                 Reference Images

 

cfSniBB.jpg?1                     ozm6t2D.jpg

 

 

 

Your Ab buttons plate are almost perfect, but you may want to trim them a bit, just to remove the rounded corners .

 

                                                                                                                                                                    Reference Images

Even though it's not mentioned directly in the crl , according to the references,  the squares on each end of the plastic ammo belt should be placed more to the end of it leaving a small space in the edges.

 

                                                                                                                                                                                 Reference Images

Your lower armor section is tending to raise and due to your thighs are a bit high, they're overlapping each other and you could be suffering some "armor bite" . You may want to check the strapping that attaches the butt plate to the kidney plate, looks like that could be readjusted and tightened up a bit to allow the armor to sit better and we suggest to lower your thighs down to release the overlapping and have more confort when walking.

 

 

                                                                                                                                                                  Reference Images

 

 

jBxBeMV.jpg?1   63YiCbm.jpg?1            y59FPaY.jpg    M3hBxKj.jpg?1

 

 

 

Your thigh ammo belt is attached  a quite over the thigh's lower ridge and the rivets should be closer to the corners as you can see in the references. This is a more challenging fix but not imposible to do.

Centurion Requirements;

In this section we prepare you for Centurion.  Because Centurion photos show more detail than EIB, items pertaining to Centurion might be seen there and not here and additional photos may be required. We try to point out all that we can from what we see, but the final accuracy is the responsibility of the trooper.

 

We are going to start from Shoulders.:

 

 

CRL L3: There should be a minimal gap between the shoulder armor and the chest/back plates.

 

 (Although not specifically mentioned), the tops of the shoulder bells should touch (or be very close to) the shoulder bridges.  In your case it seems that it is a matter of shortening the elastics of the connection between these.  Also, you can trim all the return edges from the bottoms of the Shoulder Bells to have more room.

 

 

HpYXjk8.jpg?1     0oOzCto.jpg?1  FOiMnMj.jpg?1  

 

 

Crl L3: Back plate shall have no, or minimal overlap of the kidney plate

The overlap between your back and kidney  plate is quite noticeable, in this case you could possibly have to make several adjustments, including trimming  the lower part of the back plate a bit  . At FISD you can find help and feedback for all these aspects.

 

 

                                                                                                                                                  Reference Images

 

Q7RV2aX.jpg       3MQdN4S.jpg?1   QaZfLnq.jpg?1

 

 

 

CRL L3: No return edge on the inside of the front of the forearm is allowed

 

If you decide to go for Centurion Level, (As we hope you will), you will need to remove the return edge from your wrist. not a big deal for you.

 

 

                                                                                                                                                        Reference Images

 

EDiVfg1.jpg?1      DjVHPJ9.jpg

 

 

 

 

Crl L3: The top of the ABS ammo belt should sit at or just above the bottom of the central and vertical abdomen button panels.
 

Your ABS belt is just a bit  low, so you'll need to raise it . If you look at the reference photos, you'll see that many TKs actually had the belts overlapping the lower ab buttons. A good fix is to add two small strips of velcro to the  belt to keep the front from sagging.

 

 

                                                                                                                                                                   Reference Images

 

 

PweVrmf.jpg?1           10Xqwf3.jpg?2     8DGr9Tm.jpg?1   

 

 

 

 

CRL L3: Drop boxes are vertically aligned with the end of the ammo belt with minimal gap between belt and box.

 

Yours are almost right but angled inwards. Many of us add a bit of glue to the drop box elastic to keep them in place.

 

                                                                                                                                                                     Reference Images

 

ezH7dh6.jpg?1bZaHWLV.jpg?1                      AvON8cl.jpg                dP9JY2w.png

 

 

 

 

It could be a visual effect but Your TD's Caps seems to be a little wide , you may want to check the measures according to the references.

 

                                                                                                                                                        Reference Images

 

tmvf7Nk.jpg?2   hAHPhmd.jpg?1     vuyshrT.jpg?2

 

 

 

And that is Ed, welcome to the EIB  ranks and we are confident that you can make the changes needed to reach the next level.  Centurion. 

 

Congratulations !!!  :salute:
