We have some patterns here:  http://mandalorianmercs.org/get-involved/costume-templates/

They aren't pep, but a similar enough "match edge A to edge A" style and they work well.

Plenty :D    What are you cutting the plates out of?   That'l make a difference.     But the short version is that some people use velcro, others use snaps, most seem to eventually upgrade to chicago screws in the end.  Post up some pictures of your plates taped up on you so we can check the scale, curves, and spacing before you do anything you'd regret having to cut up and undo.

to post an image you'll need to upload them to an image hosting site like photobucket, flickr, imagehost, etc then copy their [img] link and paste it here

Welcome to the BC boards! 8)

Good to see someone so eager to get a kit going! My best advice is to take it slow and read the armour boards as much as you can! Read, read, read, and read some more, use the search function, ask questions, and you'll learn everything you will need to know! One of the first big mistakes we often see is people get excited and cut out all their plates before getting some of us to check if the templates are the right size for them, then they usually have to go back and trim them smaller (which is more of a pain than you'd first imagine) or, even worse, have to go out and buy more material because the plates are too small and unusable.
So that's why we usually ask new guys to post a picture with some of the paper templates taped to your shirt. We really just don't want you to waste your time or money!

Looking forward to following along with your build and troopin' with ya someday! :)
