Nice start on the CRL.  I think it is also a good idea to start with ANH armor for TD approval but then for PO and SWAT, the ROTJ it has to be. 

On the CRL, couple of comments.

"The standard configuration calls for a minimum of one pouch on the left shoulder" - Clearly not the case (See the pic at the top of this page - only 1 out of three).  Do  we say it is there for basic but then removed for Level 2 or 3?

Shoulder straps - We have the bust pic showing ribbed straps (see CrookKnights back build thread) so do we dictate white elastic waistband same as original?

Back pack frame - Do we have good pics showing the frame? 

 

I went looking for the HD Ref pics showing the SE Trooper but couldn't find them so some of the comments are from memory.

Thanks for chiming in here bro. Yeah, there is only one trooper that can be seen wearing a pouch, the dewbackrider. We could make that a #2 requirement or only #3 now that I have read your suggestion.

HeyHo. Good work on the CRL so far!
But: Level 2 for the helmet says 'details must be hand painted'. RotJ-helmets were not hand-painted, they used Decals for everything. So this should be changed.

Here are final pictures of the pack.  I will take pictures wearing it, tonight (USA-EST).

 

Keep in mind.  This is the level 1 pack.  The level 2 pack will be identical to the toy this is being modeled after.

Here you go.  I tried to go with what would be level 1 for the pictures.  Since we will need ROTJ armor, a new pack, and some other changes for the higher level.  I am actually going to look into ROTJ armor, since it is being used so much in the Battlefront Games.

 

Here are the pictures:

Cool. Let me know what I need to do. Next I'm going to get the rotj armor so I can work on the higher levels.

Give me then next 2 or 3 days to get the CRL wording fixed and added your pictures.  Then we can get it submitted for Legion approval and get you that TD designation.  You may not want to go back :peace:

Looking forward to it. After I do the rotj armor then I want to do the Rogue one armor for the other two packs.

So I've got the wording pretty much done. I'm having a Garrison mate help me get the pictures ready for the CRL since I'm not good with photoshop. Once he's done I'll post up the final version. Hopefully later today or tomorrow.

Thanks for everyone's patience.

Okay, here it is. The final version. If anyone sees anything off or if you have suggestions, please let me know so we can get this right.

Thanks again for everyone's patience.

The CRL looks good, but I've found a few things that bug me:

- Handguards: If LvL2/3 is accurate RotJ-armor, they shouldn't be made of latex or similar material. ABS shells are the way to go.

- Chest-armor: Original Strapping in RotJ didn't use brackets and screws, so they shouldn't be present for LvL2/3.

- Backpack: There is no SE Trooper without a pack, so why is it optional?

I'm still not happy with the ANH-Armor being used for basic approval. We are one of the most accurate detatchments and we're proud of it. Why lower our standards by accepting ANH-Armor for the SE-Trooper when it clearly is RotJ?

But I don't want to make a fuss, just my 2 cents
