Hi Tim, thanks for your app.

Like Mario says, one of us will be with you shortly.:salute:

Meanwhile, could you please add  a close photo of your thigh ammo belt (both sides, inside) to see the rivet type?:duim:

Hi Tim. Thanks you for your patience(and thanks for the comments about the check list;)).

I am doing your review, and I think I need your help. I need a more clear picture of the 6 rivets on the left side. Something like this:

Thanks again Tim.

Hi Tim, 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.




Tim, You have an excellent armor, and keep in mind that most things are just dressing issues. :jc_doublethumbup:



-We think that the brow trim of your helmet (as you can see in the photos below), should be a little shorter, this is a quick fix, just be careful to do it little by little so as not to cut too much.                                                                                                                                                                                                  

                                                                                                                           Reference Images

-Vocoder should ideally be painted black using a gloss or satin finish. The paint on yours looks a little matte.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

                                                                                                                                                                 Reference Images

-It looks like you may have too much padding in the top of the helmet.  It is quite high and for a better overall look should sit a lot lower. In addition, it will surely improve your field of vision as well.;)


                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Reference Images

of9Qno0.jpg    7me2qNs.jpg      ukjmkYE.jpg?1    gsajeyu.jpg    6j0xHFI.jpg?1


- Just a dressing issue here. On the right side, your forearm is a little high (the left one is perfect:duim:). Probably because your glove is wrinkled... Surely, placing the glove properly would decrease the space between the wrist opening and the hand guard.


                                                                                                                                                        Reference Images

- Although not specifically listed in the CRLAB button plates should ideally be squared at the corners and be trimmed to where the actual plate is inside the ridge area it is mounted to as seen below. 


                                                                                                                                                                          Reference Images

skKi9wl.jpg                    LSuei4K.jpg?1   JViLwBX.jpg?1


- Another dressing issue (we don't want to see Vader get angry :laugh1:). Your TD should be more "horizontal". Pushing it down  (until the clips meet the belt) will solve the problem.

                                                                                                                                                                                          Reference Images

0nx5u5p.jpg    DGgfWB3.jpg                 dEAMXJS.png    HFL1FPa.jpg


- The angle on the top of the sniper knee plate.  It's close, but for a better look we are recommending that you trim it down (to closer match the reference images). 


                                                                                                                                                                                              Reference Images

- This is a dressing issue that you may want to take care every time you put on your armor. It is a noticeable misalignment in the top section of the ridges of your calves closure.;)


                                                                                                                                                                                       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.



- The screw of this ear is located too low. It will be necessary to raise it a little. You may have to cover the old hole with some ABS and make a new one.


                                                                                                                                                 Reference Images

L3-Ideally there no gap between the abdomen and kidney armor. Abdominal and Kidney Plate align horizontally at top. A small adjustment in the straps(or tighten the belt a little more),  will close that gap.


                                                                                                                                                                              Reference Images

LzsyIbL.jpg    eQ2Qibv.jpg                            6m3BAqh.jpg?1   0y5NexF.jpg?1   lA0qpzp.jpg?1


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


                                                                                                                                     Reference Images

c7fs7sU.jpg                           GrJ3mhS.png    4Le4CZc.png


-We have a challenging issue here, but we have confidence that you can do it.  Unfortunately, the kidney rivets are too far from the edge (and misaligned) and will need to be moved closer to the edge, as seen below.  The ones on the ab plate appear to be better positioned. After moving them, you can fill the holes with ABS paste and then sand/polish them.  A bit of a task, I know, but it seems more difficult than it is in reality...

                                                                                                                                                                   Reference Images

   V3VMLnp.jpg?1    d4D10Ww.jpg                        xW5eSAC.jpg      FPGFZaP.jpg


- The corners of the plastic ammo belt shall be trimmed at a 45 degree angle that meets the outer edge of the cloth belt. The right side seems to need just a little trimming to be ok (the edge of the belt is covered by one of the drop boxes) . However, on the left side it is necessary to raise the ABS belt a little and trim it a little as well. It will also be necessary to move the square button. 


                                         Right side                                                                  Left side                                                           Reference image

5YYL8aF.jpg       DxM8GJq.jpg                           MS8w2fB.png   


-It would be necessary to raise your AB belt a bit. One popular fix to this is to add a piece of Velcro to the belt and AB plate to keep it in place.:duim:


                                                                                                                                                                                          Reference Images

GyH36S4.jpg                    Q2X9NlL.jpg    xxczAhe.jpg



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

Yours are very close to their perfect position. You only need to lower them a little and move them closer to the edge of the ammo belt (very little). Applying a little E-6000 (or similar) to the back of the strap can prevent them from moving.


                                                                                                                                                                   Reference Images

-The Belt is too dirty in some areas. Remember that Centurion is more "attention to detail". ;)


                                                                                                                                     Reference Images

127lM6A.jpg                                          ICtQbll.png    HFL1FPa.jpg




-The gap in the bottom rear ridge needs to either be filled or have a white ABS shim behind it. 

                                                                                                                                                                     Reference Images

And that's all Tim. I know all these pictures can be scary, but most of the fixes, have quick and easy solutions. You have a great armor, and we have complete faith that you can address all the issues. After that, I look forward to seeing your submission for Centurion!!!  :th_AnimatedBravoSmiley:

  • Chemi changed the title to TK-24881 Requesting ANH Hero EIB Status (RS) (1029)

Congratulations Tim, and welcome to the EIB ranks!
I knew you'd do it.

Maybe some of the changes needed for Centurion seem scary, but if I can help at all please let me know. Everyone here at FISD will give you all the help you need to achieve Centurion, no problem.
