Ok, another shot.  I removed all that I added to the gut plate (getting back to the original template).  Interestingly enough, it is 12" at its widest point, and 7" high, so starts off just on the edge of the 50% rule.  I added 1/2" to the collar plate, and attempted to space things out a little more.  I can add a little more space between plates, after I cut the sintra.  The paper is starting to get a bit flimsy.

How does this look?

I think that looks good, too.

I think that's about spot on.

Thanks, Tek and Kris.  I will start on the sintra using these templates.

"has not been posted in for at least 30 days." - that's an understatement.

After having the templates sit "forever", I finally got plates cut, shaped, and painted.  This kit is starting to come together.

I still have a pretty long to-do list:
-weather soft parts
-fix girth and loin cloth belt
-gloves
-boots
-paint shiny bits on gauntlets
-shift front plates to the right (hopefully that doesn't mean re-positioning the velcro)
-shape the back plates a bit more
-finish painting the blaster

What else am I missing?  Feedback and advice, please. Apologies for the messy background.

You've got a good list there.

Only other thing I can see: Both chest and ab look like they need a little further shaping. They've been bent horizontally, they need some vertical shaping too. The top edge of the chest needs flattening down, it should match the collar plate and the fang needs a little tweaking. Top of the ab could do with a small touch inward.

Nice to see you back.

Your plates seem to be shifted over to your left.  They also look too small to my eyes now.  Maybe once they're centered on your vest they'll more in proper proportion.  Great job, so far.  Keep it up.

Thanks to you both.  Recentering the plates is on my to-do list.

I've reshaped and shifted my plates.  How are things looking now?  Thank you.

My wife said my flight suit and plated didn't match color, so we pivoted to a grey flight suit.

Am I ready for pre-app?

Very close indeed, just a few bits to tweak that I can see.

- A tiny bit more weathering on the vest would help - it's lighter so would show up more than on the darker soft parts.
- The chest plates need further shaping, they're only bent horizontally round the chest at the moment, they need bending vertically. If you look at the side picture they need flattening a little at the top so they aren't lifting off the body, and then the bottom fang needs shaping in to curve with the body.
- Make sure the balaclava is pulled up to hide chin when the helmet is on, and it will need removing for the helmet off shot.
