Nice, looks very well fitted to you. Reminds me a lot of the shape of my Legacy kit.

Thanks. I tried the other two templates and always ended up a little wide. Only reason I didn't try this one is because the template was annoying to cutout and tape together.

Got my sintra in today, gonna start transferring the templates over to it after dinner. Also ordered my helmet which should be on the way soon, as well as my gauntlets and some grenades. While building, I might start the progression into brigades, trying for demo. Not too worried bout it at the moment though.

Looks good. How is it with bending at the waist?

Those look like my templates, yeah sorry I keep meaning to go back and make the easier to put together.  One issue you will have, That I have discovered is that they will snap above the shoulder.  I would suggest reinforcing it or adding a hinge.  There is just too much pressure on the section.

I actually separated the collar piece in half and attached hinges where I separated. I couldn't quite get my ginormous head in the hole. Plus hinges with removable pins make things easy. I've got it mostly put together and primed with te first coat of aluminum paint. I'll post up what I have.

alright got an update here. just trying out everything i have so far. still need my boot plates, knees, gauntlets and shoulders.
im unsure how i will be doing my shoulders at this point, but here is a photo of the armor as it stands right now.

Like i said i still have alot of work to do at this point, but it was a test fit to get feedback
