24 JUNE Update:

After multiple different paint schemes and weathering I think I got something I like.  I also weathered the vest.  I used velcro to attach the plates for now but if the plates are 100 percent OK I want to use rivets or snaps as well to make a more seemless transition between plate and vest without velcro showing.  Anywho here it is.  Thanks!

You may have mentioned earlier, but what method are you using to attach the plates?

Velcro for now.  If these look good "position wise" Im going to place snaps.

Catastrophic failure on my armor..  time to take it back a few steps.  Good thing about that is now I can make my armor even better!

Top point of the ab and bottom point of the fangs are still floating just a hair, but that can probably be fixed with more velcro, or a little bit of heatgun. In general, if you're careful and gentle, you can make minor tweaks to shaping after paint, but best if you don't have to.

Thats exactly what I noticed after I looked at the pics more.  I tweaked those points and they look gooooooood!  Ill update soon with some pics of the armor on.  I added snaps and also finished the cod piece.

Update.  I painted the armor and also formed the back piece..  I realized after the pics were taken I should have taken a back pic.  When I get the time ill do a back pic.  I placed the shoulder bells as well this time and also have the cod piece shown. If you havnt already guessed I am literally trying to focus on 1 or 2 things at a time, getting the OK and then moving on.  Sorry about my posture, it almost makes things look crooked..  Things to work on for sure though :D Have a great one!
