Another clean application Ardeshir 

Thank you Glen, appreciate it brother.  This one made me nervous and I sat on it for a year hahaha.  But I learned a lot.  Already started my Anovos kit.  That one is going to be insane.  So pretty excited about it.  I'm super happy with this one and excited to be part of the First Order.  The Anovos Kit that I got is a never released version and super super nice.  Gonna take my time with it.  Thanks for the encouragement brother.

Hi Ardeshir, 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.

                                                                                   

 

Another Ardeshir's great set of armor !!  Well done sir.  :jc_doublethumbup:  and let see your EIB review.

 

 

Starting from your belt, We noticed that your black pouch is a bit angled downwards, could use some stiffening and straightening...  easy fix!

 

                                                                                                                                          Reference images

zdwYbye.jpg                   x2UgCoS.jpg?1        4YQSSmi.jpg?1  

 

 

 

Moving on your TD, the right cap should have  a secondary edge inside the inner end. This could be accomplish gluing an ABS ring piece  , some ABS paste and paint session.

 

                                                                                                                                  Reference images

U5XguG4.jpg                 GBTsLdZ.jpg?1              ZqTjGUq.jpg

 

 

and for more screen accuracy it should have a separation between mount and plate of the TD.

 

                                                                                                                                             Reference images

 

YkT2xyu.jpg                 DA1q6qc.png?1              7stOQl9.jpg?1  

 

 

Also in your TD, There's a noticeable gap between your TD and the backplate  that you  may want to make some adjustment to reduce it.

 

                                                                                                                                                       Reference images

 

6hqNDyd.jpg                                         ji4MuEI.png?1              6mop6dT.png?1       

 

 

 

Just a  dressing issue here,  we noticed  that your right knee plate is a little misaligned, as per the reference images below. Easy to deal with it. 

 

                                                                                                                                  Reference Images

 

ycHUZOa.jpg                  i7FYHJM.jpg       1ofhfo1.png?1       

 

 

 

 

 

One detail to give your Blaster a very great look is to add some Texture to your grip and de front handle. One possible solution would be using some Rubber Textured Gun Grips Material Sheet .

 

                                                                                                                                              Reference Images

 

1AjHq5b.jpg?1  OrHDIUK.jpg         KLbgqHn.png?1          Ji8OEJI.png    

 

 

 

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

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.

 

 

CRL L3:   Forearm wrist box should be separate pieces, affixed to forearms.
               Forearm top plate is not attached at front of wrists.

 

This is a more challenging fix that would include some trimming, re glue and perhaps some ABS paste and paint job , but you have show us you have great capacity to deal with this kind of mission !  

                                                                                                                                                Reference Images

 

2EmaArY.jpg                    DOgZHiD.jpg?1    gZ7D2Y9.png?1

 

 

 

Finally Trooper.

 

CRL L3: Gaskets shall be made of rubber. Fabric gaskets are not acceptable.

 

Yours appear to be fabric gaskets, so they will need to be replaced for the next level ones.

 

                                                                                                                                                   Reference images

 

aXbPEEU.jpg?1                  6bx9Edy.jpg?1           RpRS132.jpg?1    

 

 

That's all Ardeshir, Congratulations for that great build and fantastic set of photos, welcome to EIB !!   :th_AnimatedBravoSmiley:

thank you very much Mario.  Noted on the changes.  Some of them will for sure be a challenge.  I will see what I can do if I decide to take this to centurion.  I’m building an elite Anovos kit now so I may reserve centurion for that one.  But we will see.   And I already have my rubber gaskets that are a screen made set.  So we will see. 
 

The only thing on this one is that my photo mistake is that the blaster has rubberized grips that you can’t see in the photo.  So I will make sure it’s clear on the next batch.  I will see what I can address on changes for this and see about submitting for centurion.  Thank you for the time and guidance and encouragement.  Appreciate all of your input as always.
