    I agree BJ, I vote that they be referred to as Senior NCOs, since I'm old and am would do this costume if it gets it's own CRL.

    I came up with "hall walkers". lol. The working title I had in mind for a while was Death Star Officer. 
    Maybe we could just call them Senior NCOs since most of them looked a bit on the older side. 
     
    btw, I love this diagram.
     
    I do have one small concern. I don't know if i'm 100% convinced this uniform had princess seams. Most of the movie stills make the back appear pretty blank. What looks like a seam could possibly be a wrinkle. I could be wrong though.
    I'm hoping for at least, a strong consensus on that before I take my material to the seamstress next week.  
     
    I'll have to share a pic of the headphones I found that somewhat match the clunky air crew phones, the one guy wears under his helmet.

    CRL photos are being worked on, and we hope to have them added to the 501st Roster in a Month or so.

    I'm doing the photos tomorrow - weather permitting - and that should be it. I've finished off the details for the CRL about the specific parts. I even had my artist do some swag for the Imperial Army to drum up interest. You can find them here at the Walt's Trooper Factory website. Walt has been especially helpful with molding and sourcing the various parts.

    The CRL for Reserve pilot allows 3 stripes on the gloves as an option, but it's not listed as an option for the Bridge Crew. On the plus side, gloves are an option for Bridge Crew, so you don't need them for approval.

    You've received some great advice, Jon, and it's nice to see members stepping up to help. When you figure which costume to go for, we're all here to help.

    Veers to ACD made sense.  From a pure military point of view, ACD (Armored CAVALRY Detachment - emphasis on the second word) Veers was commanding the Empire's "Cavalry" - AT-AT and AT-ST walkers.

    Thrawn, Price and Tarkin are not commanding Cavalry.  They are effectively Generals on the field.  And a General is a commanding OFFICER.
     
    Tarkin is an Officer if he's in armor for field work or bunny slippers because he doesn't like the feel of his boots.  Sorry, but I'll ride and die on that hill, "feelings" be damned.

    I checked the thread over on the ACD Forums, and the last reply was back in April. It seems that the ACD was just as split as to where the "Armored Officers" should ultimately belong.

    Right now there's a small team working with one of the 501st LMOs on the CRLs. We're focusing on the basic Army Trooper and Army Engineer (Sapper) as seen in the Dark Horse comics that came out in the mid 2000s. If all goes well there will be additional costumes in the future.

    The gears and cogs of the Empire can sometimes move very slowly. Waiting to hear back on some soft parts right now.

    vonmoen reacted to afnav in Approved Jack Boot Options?   
    My German engineer boots arrived from Sportsman's Guide, and I am very pleased.  They say they are 'used', but mine were in great shape.  They split the difference between the top of my foot and my knee, and looking at some scenes in ANH, look to be perfect for trooper or Tie pilot.  I ordered size 13D, and even with my narrow foot, they fit well with athletic socks.  They have a great, thick (not too thick) rubber sole, which will be very comfortable during a long troop on concrete.  The leather is relatively smooth on the 'shoe' portion, and the shafts are pebbled.
     
    If you can get them in your size, I highly recommend them.

    The LMOs can figure out where this costume belongs, I'd be happy with an official CRL no matter where they decide to put it.

    Here's a group of images that should be what the costumes will be based on. I'm liking the black Engineers uniforms.

    Hey all, I'm finally starting to get my life back together, after getting it thoroughly out of kilter due to the birth of my son.
     
    I'm finally catching up on the boards I've been neglecting, and hope to keep more current, going forward.  The hard part isn't over yet (we're only a month in), but at least it's starting to be more routine.
     
    I haven't neglected the IOC entirely, however... it's been very much in my thoughts.  So much so that I made sure my son had his own uniform.  Meet CID-3013, one of the youngest members of the Galactic Academy:

    As a side note, since my wife posted this on the Ladies of the Legions group I have been inundated with requests to make imperial hats for their wee ones... LOL
     
    I'm too busy making him other costumes, though.
     
    Anyway, that's what I've been up to, in case anyone was wondering why it got so quiet around here without this loudmouth constantly piping up.  See you around the boards!
