    Is this the correct size?

    I'm starting my first armor build. I finally got WoF's templates printed out so just to size them I put them on one of my T-shirts. I'm 6 ft with average build, so I printed out WoF's large templates that were the correct size and placed them on one of my new fairly average Large size T-shirt and they look rather small. But this is also my first set of armor so I don't know if thats just my untrained eye.

    Are you talking about the gap at the bottom of the armor?
    If so keep in mind that you belly/waist area will have the the girth belt,ammo belt and side pouches.
    Add to that the cod armor comes up to meet the belts.

    Think it looks fine. You need a gap to fit in all that stuff listed above.

    Also keep in mind that a t-shirt is not a taylored as the flack vest will be.

    Hi, I'm working on my first set of armour as well and I'm only a few steps passed you. Here's what I did. I stuck the templates onto a t-shirt that I was wearing over a flight suit then took photos of my self in similar poses as pictures of Boba, then compared photos. bobs-chest-2-jpg

    Thanks guys... I was a little worried for a sec. sorry for being late on the "thank you" once someone said it was ok, I gunned it and went straight to building. I'll probably make a WIP thread to show for it.
