Hi Merlin!  Thank you for your submission, but you will need to post up the photos here in this thread before we can get started on your approval.  If you need help, I have a thread here which will guide you through the process.  If you have any trouble, please feel free to contact one of us in the D.O. department using this link.


A link to the required photos can be found here.


Looking forward to seeing your pics!  :popcorn:

Looks like you have figured it out FAST, lol.  While we are awaiting the rest of the images, you will need to remove the paint from your cod rivet.  It can probably be scraped off and should take you no more than a few minutes!  After that, please post up a new pic of that area.  THANKS!  :salute:

As per the CRL for Level 2:

  • Rivet on must be brass or silver in color, approximately 5/16" (8mm) in diameter and is not painted.

Hi Merlin.


I'm the D.O. making your review, sorry for delaying but  I had some issues with my pc.


In order to continue I will need you to do a couple of small fixes and add a some additional photos  please.



1- As the Crl states for L2, Any gap between the abdomen and kidney armor is no more than 1/2" (12.5mm) wide.


Your left  (ab/kidney) section is perfect with no gap, but looking at the left one, It will be a bit tedious , but we need you to suit up and take some new pics (both sides) with your belt or strapping  tightened a bit to close that gap some.  It doesn't have to be EXACTLY half an inch (or less)  THANKS!


                                                                                      Reference Image

2-  Required for L2 is the ABS belt button covers- they should be square, not rounded off on the corners.  It looks like you  used E-6000 to attach them so I think this should be a pretty easy fix for you brother. 




0k9B01m.jpg?1  Wti8Ca9.jpg?1            HnWXvin.jpg?1     YOAOw0w.jpg?1



Last easy fix brother . Looking at your nice looking E-11  blaster, specially that  real Sterling magazine (nice touch) , we noticed some printing lines and as the Crl states for level 2  "3-D printed blasters can not contain visible print lines, and must be sanded smooth for a more realistic appearance."  So we'll need you to take some minutes to give another touch with some Bondo glazing putty and a bit of sanding. 







Finally,  please add the following photos:


A-   Photo of your Thigh ammo pack inner sides to check the rivets type. (both sides)






B-   Photo of your Left side AB/Kidney connection without canvas belt to check the 6 rivets position.




C-   Photo of your TD showing the metal clips and screws.






Thank you .

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



You have made an awesome work with the requested adjustments Trooper and here a couple of suggestions to improve your great looking armor.



Your vocoder paint could be re touched a bit to looks more accurate, just a few minutes painting session can do the trick.


                                                                                                                          Reference Images


tHpCMUo.jpg?1                    xSY3FDW.jpg?3        ebxjEWJ.jpg?1




The posterior (butt) plate is  over-riding the bottom of the kidney.  I would highly suggest using  the V-tabs method  (shown below) to correct this.  It really does work !.


                                                                                                                                       Reference Images

6LQMY0P.jpg?1                      tm7wE8T.jpg?1   JCAh6jr.jpg   


A suggested and practical  solution is to add a couple of "V tabs" made from ABS .With a heat gun you bend strips of ABS plastic into the shape of a V, only glue one side and the other remains free to allow movement when you bend. Just helps stop the butt plate from pushing back from the back plate.


        6xL9RSA.jpg?1   pbpgLek.jpg?1      Jax72Gx.jpg?1




Finally in this section, we have the ammo counter  of your E11 Blaster. It looks like it is sitting a little back  and as the references, it should, ideally ,be moved forward a bit


                                                                                                                                      Reference Images


Abj5BkM.jpg?1            L5zKnxU.png      AeGCIit.jpg





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.



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


This looks like a simple strapping issue.  shortening  the shoulder strap and  a bit could reduce the gap. Another trick here is to remove the Shoulder Bell's  return edge to allow them to sit close the chest armor.


                                                                                                                                          Reference Images

Iivd6UN.jpg?1       qjjhL1B.png?1      74r31tu.jpg?2


                                                                                                                                 Reference Images


XgTSORk.jpg?1                                  93Dycf2.jpg?1       Z9A0vMl.jpg?2



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


xMMa9is.jpg?1                        B07T1UP.jpg?2     DgfBEzK.jpg?1 



CRL L3. No return edge on the inside of the front of the forearm is allowed.


Most probably It could be light effect or my tired eyes but, when applying for Centurion (we are sure you will), please, be sure that the forearms have no return edge in the front.


                                                                                                                             Reference Images


  I0b2SbG.jpg?1                  1YKX8TH.jpg   







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


2em1bBQ.jpg?1             sr2V6f6.jpg?1        XySjFIQ.jpg?1



A suggested method for fixing the old hole , (I have used it) is to glue a small piece of abs back and fill the front with abs paste, sand and polish.



gXaNKRc.jpg?1     35jXK7m.jpg    arV6uhq.jpg?1 



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


                                                                                                                                                         Reference Images


Aw0pSWS.jpg?1   WjaTisH.jpg?1        X0BKf53.jpg?1   mDcCMxg.jpg?3



A suggested solutions we have seen in similar cases is to glue a flat piece behind the Ab buttons plate and fill the gap with ABS paste, sand and polish.


                                                                         P2OALMx.jpg?1   G45DIai.jpg?2




CRL L3: Ab button paint shall not extend beyond the bottom of the actual raised button.


Looking at our small ab buttons panel, the two lower looks perfect in shape and finish, but for the two on top a bit more detail would be required. Just a few minutes of paint session would do the job.


                                                                                                                    Reference Images


IVMYvoo.jpg              wFB6j8I.jpg?1           Ys7tljV.jpg





CRL: The top of the ABS ammo belt should sit at or just above the bottom of the central and vertical abdomen button panels.


Yours is sitting a little down the line and will need to be relocated . A common solution you may want to try for this is to add a piece of velcro behind de AB belt to ensure it stay on site 



                                                                                                                              Reference Images


TebQhws.jpg?1        TqNDcWK.jpg?1        oSsuucN.jpg?1



CRL Basic: The soft belt proper is made of canvas... The color is be white to off-white.

CRL L3: Canvas belt must be firm / sturdy in appearance. No creasing or sagging 


As per the CRL, the canvas belt must be white or off-white.  However, there are a few issues that we will need to see corrected to get you to Level 3.

1.  "Off white" is perfectly acceptable, but yours has dark stains on both sides (blue areas) and is quite discolored.  Some "battle damage" is fine, but not quite this

      much for level 3.

2.  A few stray threads here and there is no big deal, but some trimming will be necessary.

We highly suggest giving it a good cleaning and a haircut, or invest in a new one that better matches the white of your armor.


                                                                                                                                                         Reference Images

IgE1TcK.jpg  RfAiRXd.jpg          kClQwcV.jpg  DhNJOwu.jpg  






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


aipPUup.jpg?1  CXfFQLA.jpg              tm7wE8T.jpg?1   fDc1Lwx.png?1




Moving on,  we have your thermal detonator belt clips. there is a noticeable gaps between the clips and the end caps and they will need to be relocated ,  as you can see in the reference images, in screen used suits, there's no gap present.


                                                                                                                                                                              Reference Images

mmIUtTQ.jpg?1    vuyshrT.jpg?2  xVKbWHb.jpg?1





Also related to your TD. We noticed some that the paint is cracked in most of it and a sanding, premiering and paint job will be necessary. 


                                                                                                                                        Reference Images


N00sMNT.jpg?1         Ns2tm5d.jpg?1            vh1OLV3.jpg 




Although it might seem like a lot of work ahead for Centurion level, we are sure with patience and little by little you can achieve it Merlin.

at the end of the day, you will be rewarded not only with the Centurion Badge  and certificate, but the pride of looking great on your armor as it came off the movie.


Congratulations again and we are here to help every step in your way to Centurion.  :th_AnimatedBravoSmiley:
