Good luck Trooper !! one of us will be with you shortly.  

 

Btw @TheRascalKing  that fence looks familiar B) 

You know it - Dwight is in my Squad, one of my mentees, and a good friend, so I worked very closely with him to finish this suit on a very tight schedule after we got his Shadowtrooper L2 Specialist approved!

Hi Dwight!  Thanks so much for your patience, and awesome job on this armor!  After looking things over we have one small item we need you to jump on before we can finish up your review, sir.  As per the CRL for Basic approval:  Frown is painted gray and does not leave the teeth area.

 

As seen below, the paint on some of the teeth will need to be dialed back a bit to where it doesn't reach into the "gum" area.  I call it the "Anovos overspray", and everyone (myself included) who has one of their buckets had the same exact issue.  It should take you all of 10 minutes with some Q-tips, a toothpick and some (non acetone) paint remover, and I'm sure Justin will be happy to help if you need it!

As soon as you get this done please post a few pics so that we can "move along", get that badge under your name and add another EI to the SCG!  :salute:

I reeeeeeeally don't get the obsession with this at EIB. Yes, many or even most frowns were pretty restrained but there were plenty that look just like his in my opinion...

Still, potentially an easy fix... "¯\(ツ)/¯"

As you know, in many (if not most) cases there are always exceptions to the "norm", especially in OT armor (i.e. Mr. No Stripes).  The teeth paint issue is one we have addressed for as long as I have been a D.O (almost 5 years) and since it is listed as a requirement for Basic approval we have to enforce it for EI.   Frown is painted gray and does not leave the teeth area.

 

Unlike the MEPD we don't choose a particular Trooper to copy for higher levels of approval, but rather the "ideal" look.

I concur with Joseph...the Anovos frown paint is very thin...so thin that I just wet my fingernails and drag in the direction I want the paint removed...might take me 

30 mins to clean up the "fog" around the frown paint..
