Mlederer[TK] Posted September 29, 2020 Report Share Posted September 29, 2020 My name is Michael and I am in great anticipation of the RS Propmasters brown box’s showing up at my front Door. I ordered an RS commissioned ANH helmet and armor and I expect them to arrive in the next few days. I know I cheated and most of the armor is assembled and ready to go. I can’t wait. (that is an understatement) Over the past few weeks I scoured the forums and developed the following list of action items to address with the new armor and helmet. My goal is to gain EIB approval and then go on for Centurion approval. The following are the initial tasks I plan on addressing before submitting for the EIB. With everyone’s experience, please let me know if I am missing anything major? Bucket: Paint the inside of the helmet with Plastidip (not required for EIB or Centurion however I like the look) Trim and position the lenses with SUGRU inside helmet leaving a small gap for ventilation Remove original Hovi tips. Drill and replace with new Hovi Mic Tips. (thanks to UKswrath) Install iComm & Mic system (also thanks to UKswrath) Install Cooling bracket Install chatter loop and wiring (again, thanks to UKswrath) Install Power supply and 4 fans including wiring Install interior padding for comfortable fit Install mesh screen over the interior of the frown Trim Brow strap (Exterior of bucket) Belt: Reposition Ammo Boxes to proper location Add a dash of glue to Ammo Box strapping to keep from shifting and hold in place Trim Ammo belt straps to keep from rubbing on screws (inside of belt) Double check the sizing of the cloth belt where it meets the ABS belt section Thermal Detonator: Paint bracket screws black Shoulder Bells: Trim the return edges of the lower section of both bells so they can rest on the bicep smoothly (top and bottom) I will consider trimming the upper edges of the bell for comfort Forearms: Trim all the return edges closest to the wrist Shoulder Strapping: Cut two white elastic straps, tie and secure on the shoulder straps for cannon Thigh tops: Trim the return edges on the tops of the thighs Knee’s: Sniper knee – trim the sniper knee for authentic cannon look Check the rivet for proper placement on the Ammo knee. It may need to be corrected and replaced for Cannon look. Strapping: I might want to add strapping and even replace the strapping to areas that might have additional stress. Blaster: Add decals picked up on Etsy for the sights on my Blaster Please let me know if I missed anything. Once complete, I hope it will be time for pictures and submission for EIB status. Thanks for any feedback, Michael (future TK) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
