WIP - Valkyrie's First Kit
« on: Feb 14, 2018, 10:10 AM »
Hello everyone, Just wanting to post this here for some tips.
I'm making my first ever kit out of 3mm sintra in black - I've darted the breastplates to make them fit better but I'm worried about placement.

What do you think?

Thanks in advance!

from what I can see your chest plates look a little bit too wide, your placement of the chest diamond should really be centered on the flat of the inside of the plates, and your collar plate looks like it needs to be cut slightly more angled to follow the profile of your upper chest plates but i cant tell from the photo. your maximum plate gap is 1/2" and it appears to be more than that in this photo. I always suggest tightening up your gaps to less than 1/2" just to make things easier on yourself in the long run.

I would recommend taking a full picture from further back so we can assess scale better. It'll make seeing what needs to be done a little bit easier  :D
