Thanks for the feedback Naran!  Was having a mini-armor party today, and your feedback came in just in time for us to be able to cut and shape the back.  Got a lot of plates cut and shaped today, will be posting progress picts pretty soon.  Need to go re-read the assembly tutorials for legacy.

Back -- center strap done, 2 straps down sides to go


Chest --center strap done, 2 straps down sides to go


I realize they aren't sitting quite right on me, (like the collar is about 3 inches too low)but that's because of the tape job being done from inside the armor, and not wanting to bother my phtographer for longer to get it fixed.  I'm going to do adjustable leather straps at shoulders and bottom plate to bottom plate when I do full assembly.

Other than the fact that things are sitting way to low :), looks pretty good to me.

All plates cut out.  Gauntlet's not cut yet, following Ku's PVC vambraces tutorial when I get there.

Thanks!

Initial shaping work:


Chicago screws should arrive tomorrow, and I can continue assembly work so that I'll be ready to refine the shape.  It's too hard to place things consistently when plates are held together just with tape.

Thanks again everyone!
New Progress pics- chest and back assembled.  I can tell the backplates need a bit more shaping, and 2nd plate is cocked, going to have to wait till I can get together with a friend to fix those.  How does the shape on the chest plates look? Diamond is still a WIP-- going to go with a diamond larger than the hole currently there, placed over the hole.   Also, my vest fits better than it looks if I have someone to help dress me... I need more yoga in my life evidently.

The nylon webbing at the shoulders and sides is currently a stand in-- will be getting black leather and buckles for final assembly.



How's the shaping/placement on the front plates?

Shnees flight suit and boots.  Boot armor not pictured. Hope to have pics with all plates and softparts on by the end of the weekend.

Got a lot of work done with a fellow future Murraan Mando today. This isn�t pre-app, but it�s Pre-Paint pics.  So I need solid feedback on what needs additional trimming (and how much)  and shaping before paint.  Also going to bevel every edge of every plate when I disassemble for paint.

Full front: I can tell I have the plates shifted to one side a bit, but that�s just a matter of adjusting the sidestraps more evenly. Girthbelt is only tacked, but is being sewn the rest of the way. together.  Also already took another half inch off the the bits of the chest plates for my arms.  Other than that, what needs adjusting on this view?



Left side: Have the shnkees marked to trim them so there�s an even arc vertically.


Right side:


Back: After taking this pic, realized I had some things misalligned.


Revised/Reshaped backplates:  Nylon webbing and duct-tape between chest and back plates is getting replaced with black leather straps and buckles.


Hand plates:



Alright, so there�s the update.  Need as much detailed feedback as possible so I can make revisions before paint.

The only thing I see is that your backplate is sitting a bit low and needs to come up a touch. In the outside pictures it is at the right level so I think in the close up picture things might have shifted. But it is something to just be aware of.

As for everything else, looks solid all around!

Awesome! Thanks, I'll knock the corners off the tips of the backplate so it can sit a little closer to the collar, make the mounts for the shoulders bolts instead of duct tape, and then start disassembling for paint.

I might suggest trimming the cod. Cods are hard enough to kneel in, yours looks a little wide like it might interfere or even fall/snap off
