The spacing looks like it might be a little wide between the collar, chest and ab. But other wise it's looks great! I love the shape of your plates :)

I designed my own vest template and now I'm sewing it out of duck cloth. Before I finish stitching the sides, I want to make sure my plates will fit on the vest, so I'm going to start cutting plates soon.

I cut out my back plate and just realized that I might have a problem and I need your help. My design does not include the neck armor, will this be an issue?

Looks fine to me. It covers the required 2/3rds of your back and it's not sitting around your kidneys :P

If anything I'd shave off a tad to open up the neck hole. Other than that it is good to go.

I've been making tons of progress. I finished sewing my vest. I cut, formed, sanded, and painted the base metal on most of my plates (except my back and collar plates and my gauntlets). I decided to have thigh and cod plates in addition to the other required plates. Below is a picture of my cut upper body plates laid out on my mostly finished vest along with my bucket. Next is my finished vest, front and back. Finally, my plates laid out for their base metal painting.

We're working on it. Weather and life are trying to conspire against us. Goal is still OM by Orlando.

Ok I know it looks like I have been stagnant, not true! I had paint issues, had to strip all of my plates and my bucket and start painting all over again. Tip for everyone, DO NOT USE RUSTOLEUM AMERICAN ACCENTS AS A BASE METAL!! So I switched paints and they are working fine (When I finish a few pieces I'll post them). For now, I'll just show you my gauntlets
