Was working on a different  armor then decided to scrap that idea. That WIP is in my signature, but seeing as I'm now working on a Legacy armor, updating there and here makes sense.

So here's my progress so far. Sanding and cutouts are done, I should be shaping them tomorrow, then on hold till the Chicago screws come in. I'm keeping most from what I've done originally, but changing chest and back plate to legacy.

looking nice, loving the ideas coming forward. little advice as I am helping my brother build the similar kit, the plates need to sit a bit higher up about 2 to 3 inches on your chest. keep us updated!

Yeah, I was having trouble with the tape. Here's some updated photos. I know I have some more shaping to fine tune.

I think heating the ends of the collar and bowing it slightly in the middle, repeating the process with the chest and finally curling the ends and tucking them inwards would help a ton with shaping here and alignment. have you reached out to your local ruus'alor to help with getting things shaped a little easier? It is always a pain trying to do it all yourself. 
nice work so far!

Redraynos has good advice here vod.  That center crease will help everything sit on you better even though it means the very middle of the plates arent touching you, then bend the ends in around a piece of like 4 or 6 inch pvc pipe, and that should eliminate the air gaps.  You're making good progress, following with interest!

I have my original WIP on clan page, I just decided to scrap the torso armor idea and switch to legacy, but yeah, the clan mates have been great help as well.

I love your work, and the strapping guide! I've smoothed some of it last night, once I get a chance I'll post updated pics.  Thanks for the advice and encouragement!

ok, updates. Still some smoothing and then slight trimming on parts

Thanks vod! Clan has an AP this weekend so I'm hoping to get straps and paint done or close to done.

Thanks vod!

Question for anyone that can, I have the Pauldron patterns assembled from the Drake Legacy templates....is there a tutorial in terms of shaping and mounting?

based on the pics of them on Drake, I think crease at the center, right angle bends where the edge of the arc starts.  Bolt on to the top of the collars/first chest plate.  I never really liked the style of them, so I went a custom route, that I still wound up not liking that will get fully resolved on my upgrades.  Should be doing assembly work Wednesday if all goes to plan, so I'll post updated pics on my WIP here in the legacy sub forum if it does.  If not, I'll post pics later lol.
