Nice work trooper, just a couple of suggestions before the DO's review:

 

Watch the gaps match on both sides, you can see one arm the forearm is touching the handplate the other has a gap. Also different gaps between the thighs and cod.

You also have quite a bit of black showing between your shoulder bells and chest, the original shoulder bells had a curve to them, you could also bring the bells in closer at the top, they appear to have a gap under them to the top of the shoulders as well.

k85ELoM.jpg?1gallery_12157_15_48577.jpg

 

You may want to bring your thighs down a little or try move the whole back armor upwards to give you some clearance at the top of the thighs. Detonator not quite centered on the rear.

Your ab and kindney plates are not quite lining up. Also your drop boxes need to be in line with the end of the plastic belt.

Ideally the large tab is removed (or trimmed to match to the other tabs)

Some paint missing from the top front ab rivet

Thigh ammo strip rivets are very close to the corners. Could you also supply image of the inside rivets connectors. Also rivet heads are quite big.

Plastic belt corners should meet with the width of the fabric belt, also the button covers should not be placed on the end of the belt.

Detonator clips should be closer to the detonator panel

A few tweaks would really make this application stand our. Good luck with approval.

Hi John, 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.

 

RS is a great set of armor John, but there's always something that can be improved to get the best look you can. So let start your review brother.

                                                                                  

Starting from top.

Your helmet looks a little  higher than references, you may want to check if you can remove some padding from top to allow it to go lower. In may case I made the same and it worked well.

 

 

                                                                                                                                                                         Reference Image

xSaxSBH.jpg   f8xED05.jpg  iu7Ibyv.jpg?1

 

In most of the ANH Stunts seeing on screen, the Brow trim goes a bit high than yours. If you want to keep this Ep4 look, we are suggesting to rise it up a bit.

 

                                                                                                                                                 Reference Images

 

yYoSlrI.jpg         ptXpRY0.jpg?1      nFEO0e3.jpg?2

 

 

The brow trim usually ends near the end of the trap, we suggest to trim a bit.

 

                                                                                                                                                                 Reference Images

 

I06HP14.jpg  vuZPYIC.jpg             Zv2GgW5.jpg      3AEYmqw.jpg   PWRuwha.jpg

 

 

 

Following, this is something we suggest only for trooping reasons , not for screen accuracy. Most troopers add some sort of black cloth or mesh behind the helmet teeth in order to prevent people at troops from seeing our faces as stated in the CRL . This is a suggestion to preserve that movie magic everybody loves.

 

                                                                                                                                                  Reference Images

 

    qmDn5CU.jpg                                                   nFEO0e3.jpg?2

 

 

It looks like your E11 blaster has a bit excess of wire  , most blaster seen on screen doesn't have them at all, but when present  it's less in amount.

 

                                                                                                                      Reference Images

yA1PPKR.jpg?1            uACUcDe.jpg    MoB8tt6.jpg?1

 

 

Finally in this section.

 

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).

 

The rivets holding on your ammo knee pack are quite close to the corner and looks like they are bigger than the "ideal" diameter of 5/16".  Not the biggest of deals, but something to be aware of.

 

                                                                                                                                                                   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.

 

Centurion level is all about details Trooper, and we consider not only the CRL but also the screen reference images to reach the highest level of accuracy.

 

 

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

 

In your case, the left side is perfect, but for the right one shortening  the shoulder strap a bit could reduce the gap.

 

                                                                                                                                                        Reference Images

 

hAIFDCh.jpg?1          qjjhL1B.png?1 pMU3r05.jpg?1

 

 

 

CRL L3: A single male snap on the top right corner of the ab plate is present.

 

Your 'Han' snap is present, but also positioned farther away from the edge than the reference images .  You will  need to drill out the snap, reposition it, and fill the old hole.

 

                                                                                                                                     Reference Images

 

BONEyIC.jpg                               7G1PtrC.jpg?2     u36hTk3.jpg?1

 

 

CRL L3: Three rivets, approximately 5/16"(8mm) diameter, are present on the left side of the abdomen armor.
              Rivets are equally spaced along the depth of the armor and about 10mm from the edge

 

Eve though yours are present, the positioning is off compared to the screen-used suits in references.  You'll need to remove the rivets, drill new holes, and fill the old ones with ABS Paste. It looks like a lot of work , but it can definitely be done. 

 

                                                                                                             Reference Images

     YreqGxo.jpg?1                  IWbG4OS.jpg?1      sr2V6f6.jpg?1

 

 

 

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.

 

One popular and easy  fix to this is to add a piece of Velcro to the belt and AB plate to keep it in place  .  

 

                                                                                                                                     Reference Images

 

XgrAYTf.jpg        oSsuucN.jpg?1    TqNDcWK.jpg?1

 

 

CRL L3: The corners of the plastic ammo belt shall be trimmed at a 45 degree angle that that meets the outer edge of the cloth belt.

 

This is going to be a real challenging one.  As required in the CRL for Centurion level , the 45 degree corners on the ends of the ABS ammo belt must meet up with the edges of the cloth belt.  In yours, the lower section of the canvas is riding lower and doesn't meet the plastic edge correctly and as you can see the square buttons should go a bit far from the edge too. A possible solution that comes to my mind, If it was my case, would be to do some sewing work, trim the bottom edge of the canvas and make a new edge that match the plastic corner.  For the Squared buttons, I would reposition them a bit mm far from the edge .

 

                                                                                                                                   Reference Images

 

TaJhhd7.jpg         Y25xTua.jpg?1     U73rIOj.jpg?1

 

 

 

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

 

This is a common issue and an easy one to fix.  Moving them outward and then applying a dab of E-6000 on the rear of the strap will take care of this and keep it from wandering.

 

                                                                                                                                                                    Reference Images

eAUMBg7.jpg?3          ISwbJoz.jpg?2                   fDc1Lwx.png?1    7H607mN.jpg?3

 

 

Moving on to your thighs back, You have a small gap in the ridges where the back of the thighs meet. You could fill that gap with ABS paste, or as alternate solution,  you can also just back it with a small square of ABS so that the black doesn't show through.

 

                                                                                                                                                            Reference Images                                                                                       

z91B3nZ.jpg         PdzZZYA.jpg     Qd7DDoO.jpg?1

 

 

CRL L3: Sniper knee plate must be aligned with the ridges on the shin.

 

As you can see , the sniper knee is a bit lower (red lines) and should go aligned with the shin (blue lines).  To fix that, It would be necessary to take it off and re-glue it  higher to match the ridges correctly.

                                                                                                                                                     

                                                                                                                                                               Reference Images

Certainly, we have a challenge here but we are  confident that you can do it John and here in the FISD you can find all the support and guidance you need to achieve this next goal.  We are here to help. 

 

Congratulations again Trooper!!  :salute:
