Looks like your collar plate is gonna need some trimming on the outside. Including your chest pieces. If we can get a better picture up close well be able to help you out with the trimming.....

Nice colors!  8)

Yeah, your chestplates are too big. The belly plate should end at about your belly button, give or take an inch or so. Your collar should fit between the balls of your shoulders, and the chestplates should follow roughly the curve of your pectorals. If you lift your arms straight in front of you, or cross your arms, and the plates bonk together badly or stab you in the arms, they're still too big.

As for the gauntlets, with your arm out straight, about four fingers' room at the crook of your elbow will give you enough space to wear them comfortably.

So now that classes and finals are done, I hope to finish this over the summer. On the subject of the armor plates, would it be recommended to start over, or cut down the plates I already have? And if I am cutting down the existing plates, I should flatten them out again, yes?

I'd recommend trimming what you have, rather than starting over.  But that's up to you.  Whichever way works best for you, go for it!

So I printed out some new templates, and before I get to far again, how does this look for size/placement?

Something about the angle of that photo makes your melon look elongated, like you're part Muun. 

In my eyes, the collar is sitting a little low and may be a little wide.

As far as I know, I'm full human, so I'll blame the mirror for the noggin shenanigans. So if the template is too big, if I printed them out at say, 90-95%, that would be good?

Yep.  Give that a try.  And when you place the template for a pic, make sure the collar is almost choking you.

I'm back with another template! This one is definitely better, but is it right?

Added some more templates to the set, the end of the belly plate is about 5 cm above the ol' belly button. Earlier in the thread, it was said that it should end about 3 cm lower. Is this just spacing, or is my torso oddly proportioned?

EDIT:

How about some pictures?


and with belly button reference

Your plates look a bit bunched up. Ideally, you want about an inch between the collar and chest pieces, and the chest pieces and ab plate.  No more than half an inch for the diamond.  So if you space out the torso plates a bit using - literally - the rule of thumb, that should just about take care of it.

And everybody's torsos are different.  Some have long torsos, some have shorter.  You'll get the perfect size, vod.  Keep up the great work.

I reflattened the plates, and it looks like I'll be able to just cut with no problem... except for the collar plate. If I use the existing plate, I'll lose about 1 cm on each side of the neck. That shouldn't be a problem, right?




And I guess I'll have to sand the stripe off too before repainting.

EDIT:

I got the back plate template cut out too:

Your plates could stand to come down maybe an inch or two. I think that is what is causing the bunching issue. My ab plates end just above my belly button.

Back plate looks ok size wize. You just have to be careful about how it sits around your shoulder joints. That's more of an issue with shaping that we can cover once you cut everything out.
