About my action Shot: unfortunately I forgot my blaster, when we were taking photos of me in armor. While we still had to do an action shot, I was lent the Blaster of TK-51337. The Blaster in the single shots is my own (this single photos we taken a few days later). Of course, if required I can jump into full armor again and take a new action shot with my own blaster.


Here is a picture with all of our F-11D's at once :) (mine is in the middle)

Forearms (Guideline Points 16-18):



Abdomen (Guideline Points 19-21):

To prevent confusion:


We (Richard TK-40193, Daniela TK-72216 and Sebastian TK-51337) built our stormtroopers together last year - the local Rise of Skywalker premiere was our first troop as FOTKs. In January we submitted our armors for basic approval and passed it.


We then decided to update the few parts that we hadn't initially built to the Level 2 and Level 3 standards and are now appliying for the next levels of approvement. Since we built the armors together almost every mechanism, closure method and solution to strapping problems is the same - there are small individual differences but nothing major.


We took our new approvement photos before a green screen in our living room with a set up to lights over a couple of days so lighting and background should be consistent in all three of our applications.


Thank you very much for your time!

Hi Richard, 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. Note that we consider both text (CRL) and pictures (screen caps/reference images) when reviewing submissions.



Starting from top:


Your helmet seems to be riding a bit high in comparison with most seen onscreen.  Not a deal breaker for Level 3 by any means, I had this same issue with my Anh Tk due to have excess padding in the top, removing or reducing it will help it ride a bit lower and looks more accurate . 



                                                                                                                                                                                    Reference Images



EQFokba.jpg?1  4UBEhlk.jpg?1             0wI3GKX.jpg?1       pa16rUl.png



Your neck seal looks great mate and although you have the correct number of ribs and shiny finish as required, It should ideally have the zipper closure in the front.


                                                                                                                                                                       Reference Images

 If you raise your biceps a little more, you will free your elbows for greater mobility and more accuracy


                                                                                                                                                                Reference Images

 It could be a light effect, but one of the three "dots" on each of the ridged area of the forearms looks more in the range of black color , and should not be. 

The crl for L2 states "On the ridged rail the third retaining button head closest to elbow is to be painted grey or is a grey decal."


                                                                                                             Reference images            

     WJTJjDV.jpg                           qkxnLPw.png?1     ZRUxTaU.png?1    7WK5cia.png?1           




Moving on  your TD from the side, there's a noticeable gap between your TD and the backplate  that you  may want to make some adjustment to reduce it.


                                                                                                                                                                   Reference Images


oXPz467.jpg?1                                                              IqGNR5U.jpg          aQyUBP7.jpg?1  




Looking closely to the right side of the TD, we suggest to smooth the edges  a bit to get a better look. A few minutes of sanding could make the deal.


                                                                                                                                       Reference Images


7HaYpP6.jpg?1                                                  o76IlCC.jpg





We are suggesting trimming your cod and posterior plate to better reflect the angle as seen in TLJ.  Note in the reference images that the bottom part is thinner and actually curves underneath.


                                                                                                                                                                             Reference Images

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.



Something to be aware of is that the tops of your forearms have a curve (as seen in TFA) rather than a slight angle as seen in TLJ


                                                                                                                                                                  Reference Images


PmahPVk.jpg?2                                                                             FYqqWCJ.jpg       9IRTrFG.jpg             




It looks like your TD mount and TD plate are one piece, and although not specifically mentioned in the CRLs (not yet) they must be 2 separate components.


                                                                                                                                                                         Reference Images


THnX9FF.jpg                                                  grzgzRo.png        rx3HhJd.png





This is just a small detail that is missing from your weapon, it's the presence of a light mount on the barrel also known as  Picatinny (Pic) rail .  You can find it online on several types and sizes                            


                                                                                                                                                                        Reference Images


vCs96hK.jpg?1              bRstgMB.png?1    8f7tmzE.png?1







Those FOTK  fantastic looking blasters, sharp lines, working lights are really amazing. unfortunately yours has some details  seen in TFA not in TLJ.  A rectangular "D-ring" must be present, and both it and the mount need to be white.


                                                                                                                                                                     Reference Images


9hBSdAI.jpg                                                   3GvMrcG.png        mwDTVmH.png




And  That's all Richard, you and your friends did a great work on those 3 TLJ  Armors.  Congratulations again and looking forward for your Centurion app in a nearest future.    :th_AnimatedBravoSmiley:

thank you very much for your time and that very fast answer.


I'm honored to be in the ranks of EI now :wub:


It's really amazing to get so much tips and input to improve the armor! I will go through that information really thoroughly and i hope we can start to work on the requirements to try conquer Centurion soon.
