Thanks, all. I'm thinking I may have to trim the collar plate a little...
I trimmed my mine. I couldn't move my arms up very far due to the width of the collar plate. But because I trimmed the collar plate I also took off some of the chest plates too so they match up still.
Your concept pics look great! Keep up the good work.
all righty, I thought up another question. I've been reading through the various threads regarding helmet sizing and buying, and I've been trying to figure out the sizing ratio. I'm still scratching my head about the '1:1' or the '2:1' ratios. Is there a specific mathematical formula to this, or is just a relative thing? Also, I was thinking I'd need to be absolutely positive that the helmet was the right size before I spent all this money. I've been tossing around the idea getting of the Jango 2 piece ('cause I'm small [like, 5 foot nothing]) and I was wondering if you can only buy it online, or if there's a place to go and try on different helmets. (That may just be wishful thinking on my part)
so, with all the helmet info in mind I had my wonderful buir (mother) measure my shoulders, and we came up with an ~18 shoulder span. This seems like it will make my helmet kind of small if I go with the 2:1 ratio...*raises eyebrow* 9 inches at the base? Seriously? So, am I looking at a 1:1 helmet? Like I said before, the Jango 2 piece is looking (to me, at least) to my most viable option as of right now.
