5 years after Big Brown Box(es) Day, 'Ere we Go!


Recommended Posts

I actually started about 2 weeks ago, and have been making some good progress on my ATA Armor.  I'm hoping for at least EIB and possibly Centurion, but we'll see how it goes.

That's it so far, I'm working on the shins right now.  Next is the Torso and then all the greebles that I haven't put on yet, ammo boxes, sniper knee, the belt and so on.

Hi Scott, welcome to FISD and congrats for your BBB day and great advances with your ESB TK and your plan to go for higher levels !! :jc_doublethumbup:.

 

The initial stage is the best time to view the finish line and to plan how to achieve it. With this in mind I would like to make a couple of suggestion to your helmet build.

 

 

1- CRL states :  Frown is painted black and does not leave the teeth area. 

 

In yours, there is a little excess of blac paint that can be removed easily with a toothpick and non acetone remover.

 

2- CRL States for L2:    Ideally, the tube stripes are positioned approximately a pencil width from the side of the cheek.
                                    Fall of tube stripe tops ideally lean toward the front.

 

As you can see your Tube Strips a a bit far from the cheeks and the fall of them is on the contrary. Fortunately, for ESB the tube strips are decals, so it's easier to just to take it off and relocate it in the correct position and fall.

 

3- Finally: Your rigth Hovi Mic tip  is a little lower than the left one. In my experience it's just a simple turn the tip a little more to adjust.

A second set of eyes helps everything!

 

I'll get right on these, Thanks!
