Thanks!

Couple of updates, some muddying up applied on the plate, added some scrapes and scratches etc. Looks well. Also below is a sizing image. Cut 1/2" off and tested. Thoughts please.











And the sizing:



Also scores are tied. Still keeping poll open. At least til i find a foamex supplier.

You'll want to move all of them up just a bit but it looks like the sizing is good.

Thanks. Thought they were low. Think t-shirt sunk a little after I'd taped them on.

I'd actually say the collars a tiny bit too wide. It will work as it is, as Vanlande said, however I'd take half an inch from the centre of the collar so it's closer to your neck on both sides and angle the top of the chest plates inwards to match it. It's more of a personal preference that I'd rather protect close to my neck than my shoulder :P

Kris has a good point! I'd say give it a shot on the template. Easier to do on paper than the actual plate.

Thanks I'll do that. If taking another 1/2" on the neck do I need to do the same again on the plates?

I'd fold the collar in half, then measure say a cm from the fold line and cut both sides at that mark. I'd then use some ever helpful tape to rejoin the collar plate into one.
The collar will then be a little thinner than the chest plates. Lay them out and match them up and trim the chest plates to match the collar. I'd just trim the top section, from the collar to the sticky out bit at the arm pit. Sort of taking a long triangle off it rather than taking that amount off all the way down, as the width is fine at the bottom.

It's my first build too. It'd be like the blind leading the blind. I'll put tips in here if you keep looking back.

^This. My plates didn't even come from a template. I just kinda drew what I thought looked good and followed the general lines of the dozens of armor sets I looked at.

Slow progress due to finances and school. Still lurking though.
