    OK, finally got everything put on to a mannequin, and about 99% complete.
    First of all, I know there are some issues with armour placement- this is due to the mannequin being super skinny (need to bulk it out), the armour actually 'spreads out' correctly when I am wearing the vest.
    Everything (apart from the boots)- hard and soft, is made and finished by BM- unbelievable painting on the helmet and armour, but we know that already!

    I am aware that the BM armour is smaller, and comparing to screen used, this becomes apparent. I am 6'2" with medium to heavy build. The question is, will this work for me or do I need to go bigger? I am aware of the different vendors' armour, but can anyone point me in the right direction as to who's armour would fit me better?

    Sorry about the lousy pictures, I have seriously run out of space and had to find a corner so I could get some half decent shots.

    Any feedback would be appreciated (I know the girth belt should be less brown and more red!).

    I think the armor plate sizing is fine. Guess we'd be better able to tell if you were wearing the vest yourself instead of the mannequin, but really it shouldn't be bad at all.

    Yeah, it's strange but looking at the photos, the armour doesn't seem to look too undersized.
    I do feel, however, that I need something maybe 25% bigger.
    Don't get me wrong, the armour is a work of art, as anyone who has BM's stuff will testify. I think the problem is that no vendor can really do a 'one size fits all', especially when you are selling to a variety of body sizes.

    I do make larger sized armor for guys your build Yorkie. Check out my sale thread (link in my signature) and see if it's something you might be interested in. It's based off the WOF large sized templates.

    I've seen your gear and it's one that's been on my radar for some time- wasn't sure if you were still offering full sets at this time.
    I'm desperately trying to sell some bits on various forums (which unfortunately aren't shifting) so I can look in to getting some different armour
