Hi John.

Amazing job on making the required centurion changes.  You are so close but before approving you, I just need a few couple tweaks and 1 more photo.

 

There is still a bit of return edge on the forearms.

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

 

                                                      References

The right drop box is not aligned with the back edge of the belt.  This likely just needs a bit of adjusting to the hook and loop you added.

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

                                                                               References

Could you please provide a photo of the back of the left thigh bottom? I am unable to ensure that the gap at the bottom is filled correctly as the holster is covering it.

Just as an aside note, your kidney plate looks a bit crooked and is causing the right side of the back plate to overlap.  As this is just a dressing issue, it does not affect your approval.  Just something to watch for when getting kitted up.

Centurion take two:

 

First thing with a rotary tool I sanded down the full circumference of the forearm wrist area. I extra made sure to flatten the areas where the divots are with a metal file

The drop boxes were an easy fix but moving the webbing over slightly where the velcro is

Here's an uncovered shot of my left thigh with the filled gap

I also realized I had some forehead foam that I could remove to help the helmet sit a bit lower on my shoulders

Hi John, and thank you for your Centurion application.

 

CRL and Centurion 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 Centurion.  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, and please keep in mind that  we consider both text (CRL) and pictures (screen caps/reference images) when reviewing submissions.

 

John, you have done a great job on this kit and are well deserving of the Centurion rank.  Great work on making all of the required modifications. 

The only recommendation that we would make is watch the slight overlap of the back plate on the kidney plate on the right side.  This is likely just a dressing issue or may need some slight strapping adjustments.

 

Congratulations again.  Well done.

Thank you! I had an absolute blast building this starting in April. I’m already getting some battle damage from trooping so i’m glad I submitted when I could.

Had to improvise with a pauldron ^
 


Big thanks to everyone who helped and my DO @Doggydoc for taking the time to critique. I’m happy to tweak this costume further but even more excited to pass on this knowledge to future troopers.

 

Thank you @Cybergrunt and @starsaber25 at my local garrison for all your tips as well as @revlimiter and @MaskedVengeance on Discord with your amazing reference build too
