Hey All,
Starting on my armor build.  I am doing a cardboard mock-up to get a rough spacing and sizing before I move to the PVC Board.  Not sure about the sizing of the plates.
Starting with my concept drawings. Those are still in flux as I try different things to find not only what I like but also what would be approved.





EDIT: 8/3/21

I am adding all the links to the other parts of this build here in this first post both so I can keep track of them and for anyone who is interested in seeing the other aspects that went in to this build.

Spacing looks pretty good to me! My only concern is how wide the neck cut out is, I think if you made the sides thicker (to bring it closer to your neck) then that would help! I hope that makes sense? Lol

Thanks so much for the input.  I brought the sides of the neck in about 1cm.

I'm back at it with the cardboard modeling.   Did some work on my ideas for the shoulders.  I want some raised sections for depth contrast and for color placement.



I also did some work on my shins/knees...not sure I like how they hit my knees when I walk. I may end up with shins and knees as separate pieces.  I also got my PVC board.  Motivation to finish my cardboard designs engaged.

Question: WIP First Armor Kit
« Reply #7 on: Feb 05, 2020, 10:11 AM »
Hey all is an armored skirt acceptable?

I am thinking about something like this.  The 'skirt' would attack to my sash.

An armored loin cloth and kama should be fine :)

Update: WIP First Armor Kit

I got all my pieces for the front of the armor and shoulders traced and rough cut.  I started with the sand paper today.

I'm enjoying your design stage. You've got some great ideas.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Also update:

I got all the pieces sanded and I cut out my hand plates.




I am starting to think about what my paint job is going to look like.  I am currently leaning toward this one for the chest plate. 


And finally a question...can I have a segmented back plate or do I just need to do either a solid one or spaced plates?

You can have segmented, a solid piece, or pieces that are separated (just make sure the spacing is the same as your front plates). Totally up to you!
