Hi Jim,

 

Thank you for your patience Trooper.

 

You have made a great improvement with your armor fixes, it looks much better.

 

As you may know, Centurion Level is all about details and after discussing with the D.O. team, sadly there are some details that need to be addressed before we can get the Centurion Badge under your name. let see:

 

 

The vocoder looks almost perfect, but it is necessary to refine some areas, indicated in yellow . This is an easy fix with a short painting session.

 

                                                                                                                                        Reference images

NHesFOZ.jpg                            VW9l6sB.jpg?1           t6ljeu5.jpg?2

 

 

 

As you can see. your neck seal rides passing  the shoulder straps, one possible solution could be to trim it down as shown bellow: 

 

 

8TZuvZ8.jpg     cq1ZfbT.jpg

 

 

 

When present,  Sweep on the sides of the shoulder bells is normally forward not backwards

 

Jo50ogr.jpg  7eSHlmz.jpg   3p3XHFh.jpg?1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your right bicep seems to be lower than the left one, looks like a simple strapping adjustment . 

 

 

                                                                                                                                                   Reference Images

Nz8VRkv.jpg     XPzHQWK.jpg   pMU3r05.jpg?1

 

 

 

 

Your right forearm looks like being upside down, curve is at the top . You may want to check both forearms to confirm the correct position.

 

                                                                                                                                         Reference Images

 

                    bYPU3K5.jpg                       psLGxB8.jpg    7ALSxJ9.jpg?1

 

 

 

Unfortunately you over trimmed the sides of your large ab-button plate.  It must have a flat area surrounding it so will need to be fixed or  replaced for Level 3.

 

                                                                                                                     Reference Images

 

gZWkt8O.jpg?1                                mDcCMxg.jpg?3          ET34PuR.jpg?1 

 

 

 

A possible fix for this issue could be to add a piece of ABS plastic behind the plate and seal with abs paste and make some sanding.

 

                                                            DAylugo.jpg?1              G45DIai.jpg?2

 

 

 

It seems like your back plate is overlapping the kidney armor. Strapping between the chest plate and backplate could be tighter, appears loose in the second image, this would help bring the backplate in and up off of his kidney plate.

 

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

 

                                                                                                                                                                                  

 

cWI4mqI.jpg          R6Wp2xc.jpg        

 

                                                                                     Reference Images

 

                          3MQdN4S.jpg?1    QaZfLnq.jpg?1

 

 

by the other hand, you may want to check out the Ab/Kidney rivets to assure that they're into the correct position.

 

Crl L3: Ideally there no gap between the abdomen and kidney armor. Abdominal and Kidney Plate align horizontally at top.
A single visible seam line is present.
Three rivets, approximately 5/16"(8mm) diameter, are present on the left side of the abdomen armor.
Note: The original rivets used for the TK armor were bifurcated rivets or split rivets.
Rivets are equally spaced along the depth of the armor and about 10mm from the edge
.

 

 

             fopdluz.jpg                    7R4bYpE.jpg?1   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also, You may want to cut down the shoulder strap rear large tabs , for more accuracy . 

 

                                                                                                                                                             Reference Images

 ryvV34J.jpg?2      qb4YVKO.jpg?1   B3vL4VO.jpg?1

 

 

 

Looking to the right side of your Ab section, Ab plate is overlapping the  kidney armor.  Adjusting the straping may solve this issue. 

 

sacf4hs.jpg    0AQUDcB.jpg?1                  9Ktw7FD.jpg?1   A862FHm.jpg?1

 

 

Moving down to your TD, the  clips are sticking out under belt, also the control panel  should be rotated to see the O detail, and sit central (or higher) on the belt, it's sitting quite low and too much clip showing at top

 

 

 

z7NMYJr.jpg    krmT7WM.jpg

 

                                                                                     Reference Images

 

 

               66W22Oe.jpg?1          ENBGgGW.jpg?1                  eXtIssr.jpg?2   

 

 

 

Also with your TD, you may want to check the dimensions, it does appear quite long,  the gaps between the panel and end caps differ a bit. 

 

UHWqCMv.jpg    HvEYSRQ.jpg?1

 

 

 

Finally, looking at your E11 Blaster , a little weather looks nice, The T-tracks and grips on must not contain any "weathering" (silver color) as the screen used ones .  A few shots of black spray paint will fix it. Easy !

tCcnhWU.jpg                                      BBWDxkC.jpg         RA9RuhT.jpg  

 

 

 

 

Following detail is not a L3 blocker but all the D.O. team is curious about the Shoulder Bells additional horizontal straps on the fronts and backs of the shoulder bell interiors you have. We wondered if you could need some help with this particular armor section? . 

 

 

 

                                    jDsMbmU.jpg            gnMwKk7.jpg            xktz6aT.jpg            

 

 

 

 

Certainly , it looks like a lot of work ahead but we are confident you can deal skillfully with all of them. Let us know if you need some assistance.

The story goes like this, there were a series of Disney events to promote The Last Jedi back then, and we were asked to perform some moves on stage  (dancing), the straps were added to minimize the shifting of the shoulder bells. I think about 8 - 10 troopers in our Garrison received the modification.

9) right-side Ab plate overlapping issue addressed.

iKQdJnxyL8qhqQlMwxE2E7dMnZcjZydIkcJqp22-

 

 

10) TD re-worked. Length cut down to 180mm / metal clips trimmed on both ends so the control face-plate now rolled to face the outside more

JH7ud9EekYClQdW2BTud5qiEo_RrHyn-uMKF0N8l

 

 

11) I think the "weathering" on the E-11 Blaster in the last set of photos are actually high-lights from the surrounding. Anyway I went back and re-touched the areas with a new coat of semi-gloss black,

Please let me know if additional issue arises.

Hi Jim, and thank you for your Centurion application! 

 

CRL and Centurion 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 CENTURION.  Congratulations!  :salute:

 

Jim, you have made and awesome work with the requested fixes, well done !

 

 

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

 

 

 

Just a few suggestions that we are sure you can go the extra mile to get the best look to your armor.

 

 

 

 

The male snap on the top right corner could be moved a bit to the top.

 

                                                                                                            Reference Images

 

459nKCP.jpg             bGFMBG9.jpg?1             CCSkqFm.jpg?1        

 

 

 

The small ab buttons panel could look better with a small reshape as the references. 

 

                                                                                                                                   Reference Images

 

              eSxU3Vy.jpg?1                                                   UzU1W3j.jpg?5       wFB6j8I.jpg?1

 

 

 

Even though  you have trimmed your TD clips and it looks much better, there's still lot of clip at the top showing on the belt. 

 

                                                                                                                                           Reference Images

XJOWQUa.jpg?1        w2v9PKo.jpg    VeXjroO.jpg     

 

 

 

A suggested fix for this could be that you  carefully bend the tops of the clips as seen below.  That would raise it to the level of the belt as well as eliminate the excess that can be seen on top.

 

me939DZ.jpg             pvBkMOr.jpg

 

 

Following there's an almost imperceptible detail on your canvas belt, and it looks to us like a piece of thread sticking out? or some stain may be?

 

          Q2Ci2kZ.jpg?1     pfDwlQe.jpg?2

 

 

Finally, sometimes when one fix is made in some section, there's some new  issue that pops up from other side. :56pullhair:. It looks like there's a gap between your Butt plate /Kidney connection.  Perhaps with just a strapping adjustment makes the deal.

 

                                                                                                                                       Reference Images

 

d9vo3rS.jpg                 H0oWKfi.jpg     8ITZnkr.jpg       

 

 

 

                                                                                    

Congratulations again Jim, welcome to Centurion ranks  !!  :th_AnimatedBravoSmiley:
