Hi Daniel,

First of all welcome and thank you for your interest in joining the MEPD´s finest and becoming a deployed officer.

 
Thank you for providing such a tidy application, your armor fits and suits you well, you look great and your pack is really nice, I have followed your build and the details are great, you have done an amazing job in building your pack yourself! :duim: (I am not completely sure if the Sonix shouldn´t be sitting in the box as it is with most other shots of this pack where it has already come apart, but I see your point in doubting this).

Although this isn´t SWAT yet, I like it that you have already chosen a trooper to emulate and your chosen trooper is immediately recognizable.

 

Okay, enough of the small talk and pleasantries, let´s get your review going.

 

Application Review: Part 1

Helmet

a. Green lenses: check

b. Paint color of traps / tears: check

c. Correct number of teeth: check

d. Mic tips: check

e. Vocoder color: check

f. Tube stripes: check

g. Rank bar on ears: check

h. Brow: check

i. Side screws (ears): see comments

j. Weathering: check

k. no mesh behind teeth: check

 

*additional comments*
Nice helmet, I like the weathering and the fact that you have added the paint chips showing the olive HDPE underneath. Brow´s a little low for my liking but that of course is personal preference (should you later on decide to really go all the way for SWAT, it would have to be a little higher).

However, the screws should be painted white. I think yours have been previously painted white but as it seems, too much of that paint has come off, so please repaint them and give them another wash with weathering. (The same actually goes for the split rivets on the abdomen and the cod piece too, I think as these aren´t too prominent, it´s a pass)

*additional comments*

As I have said before, your armor really suits you well but there are some points to address:

Personally I think you look a little too clean. On the other hand you have provided the pics of your chosen trooper on screen and this guy is rather clean too, so that´s okay.

Shoulder straps: I appreciate that you have already updated your picture showing the snaps and you have added the correct sew-on snaps, but now the elastic shoulder straps look too clean and brand new and should be more in line with your canvas ammo belt, so add some dirt/weathering.

Thighs: I can´t really tell for sure from the pictures but does the AP armor use the but-joint-and-coverstrip-method to close the thighs at the back or is it the overlap-method? Are they actually closed at the back?

New
After studying your present pics a little closer, I can most definitely tell that the AP armor uses the overlap method at the back of both, the tighs and the shins.
You have added coverstrips at the front which is fine:duim: but please shorten/cut down the front coverstrip for your left thigh, bigwam has already shown how it should look like in his post below. 
For the back of the thighs and shins, you will also have to add the coverstrips which should be an easy enough job. While doing so, please also try to allign the bottom of the left thigh. While it´s not really important for the top of the thigh to line up perfectly, the bottom should line up. 

Undersuit: you are of a rather slim build and your undersuit looks slightly too wrinkled, especially at the back of the knees, is it possible to get a smaller undersuit?

Daniel, this was your first review!
Your gear looks great and you will be a worthy addition to the ranks of the MEPD´s finest.
So please provide some detailed pics/close-ups of the thighs, all the rest are easy fixes, so go for it!

I am looking forward to seeing some new pics of your improved gear soon.

Cheers mate!

Daniel, I have added a section on your overlap-construction thighs and shins in my previous/earlier review, it´s written in italics so you can easily identify the new part.
