Wow it looks great! Some light sanding (like 200 or 300 grit) should get the edges nice and smooth. But I recommend heat forming the plates before you sand.

This part can be super exciting, just remember to take it a piece at a time.  As far as sanding goes, I always hit my plates with an 80-100 grit before I heat form it to make sure that there are no sharp edges or burls that will catch on either myself or the person I am forming the armor to.  Then I hit it again with a higher grit before painting.

I don't think I was following your build. But I am now! Beautiful clean cuts on your armor!

I can also easily pop into your clan boards since you're in my region too!

The "scary" part is over.  You made the cuts!  And I agree with Vercopaanir: 

... As far as sanding goes, I always hit my plates with an 80-100 grit before I heat form it to make sure that there are no sharp edges or burls that will catch on either myself or the person I am forming the armor to.  Then I hit it again with a higher grit before painting.

Smooth the edges first, then heat form.  This also makes getting a uniform edge on all the plates a bit easier.  Go easy at first.  Then sand the first pieces again at the end to look like the last pieces.  Good luck!

I saw that vibroknife and got real excited! :porg2: I intend to make one of that model too, so seeing it pop up on your thread is a treat! Looking forward to seeing your spin on it.

Plates look good, you should try them on to see how they fit.
