They look a little big but the lighting is throwing me off, try to get a light source in front of you and not towards the side at an angle. A good test is to try crossing your arms and if the plates shift a lot or dig into your biceps they need to be trimmed.

Yeah, I think it could use a trim. 1/4 in and start from the collar and match it when going down to the chest plates, then match those for trimming the ab.

Aye, mainly at the armpit area that looks a little wider than it could be. Make sure you straighten the chest plates us too - that may mean trimming around the ab so that the spacing is even. But it's looking good so far.

Go smaller still. When I look at anyone's armor, I compare it to the pp2 Fett armor. Look at the proportions here.
Pay attention to the position if the ab plate, and the rest will fall in line.
Better?

I'd say you're good there, but you ab plate seems to favor your right (pic left). Adjust that a smidgen to the left (pic right) and you look good. Where's the diamond though?

That does indeed look much better, few tweaks and a rogue diamond to find and that'll be perfect.

update : now armour WIP heavy sniper
« Reply #13 on: Jan 08, 2016, 02:31 PM »
so now the plates are sized instead of starting a new thread I've decided to keep using this one! for those interested im building a heavy anti materiel sniper. he spends months in the field crawling around on his belly, laying in the mud,sleeping rough and living in his armour. so i wanted it to be pretty beat up and weathered. so thats the concept. heres the plates ive painted up so far.....

Knees:

shoulders:

and bucket....

next stop back plate!!
im having some issues shaping it and getting it to line up with my collar plate. I have quite uneven and sloped shoulders after an accident. will have another nudge at reshaping it today(6th time?) with some darts to get a more compound curve gong. more updates soon!!

Weathering looks great and back plates are a pain.
