It could be the paper templates poking up at the corners in the photo, but the outer top edges of the chest piece need to align with the outer lower edge of the collar plate...other than that, those look pretty nice on you. They are definitely heavy!

I think the tips of the chest that stick out past the collar is because the collar and back plate are scaled differently than the chest and abs. I had to scale down I think to 88 percent in order to get it right.

However, that is an easy enough fix to just trim them down.

Looks good though

Cut the plates and did a lot of the shaping


Taped together and hanging loose from my shoulders


From the back


Tomorrow I'm going to work on the harness and riveting the plates to it.

It looks like the back is too wide for your body...you may have to shape and  tuck it up tighter to your ribs.

Otherwise, it's looking good. ;)

Nice cutting and molding there! That back plate is still huuuuugge though. You'll want to bring it up so that neck curve sits right about where your shirt collar is, and it shouldn't go down too far past your lower back.
Does the front have a separate collar plate? Hard to see in the Pic, but you'll need that. How's the arm movement? You might be able to trim a little off around the armpit still, but you've come a long way from the start. Does the bottom belly plate end about at your navel? That's the goal there.
You've done great crafting those pieces, great clean symmetry. If possible you might want to add a little bevel to your plate edges, it'll help give them more of a natural edge.
