This is Phil's armour last week. I kept looking at the back plate. Just did not like its lines.
Oh sure, it would "work" but I was not happy with it.
So I took it apart and started hammering again.
Both the back plate and the back placquart were just not "right".
And I hated that buckle. No keeper, and just too plain.
This is what the back plate looks like now. The small of the back actually comes in closer to his body, and the side is a full two inches longer now.
The whole armour looks a lot nicer now.
I moved the top strap to the placquart...I can add a third if it is needed.
