    Im not having much luck getting info on this in the costuming section so I thought id give it a go here. Hope someone can help.

    I need some information on vaders armour. I have a set which is rather large, im not sure what type it is or if its the corrects size, but its far too big for me, im only 6ft and dont have very broad shoulders so its too big in both length and width. Ive heard a lot about different versions for sale that are 'Prowse' size or smaller versions. So... what im after is mesurements of different sets of armour so I can firstly tell if mine is more prowse size or not and secondly so that I can see which set would fit me best. Thanks in advance for any information you can give.

    Can you post some pics or measurements of your set?

    Here you go. Let me know if you need any other measurements. Just to let you know the armour still needs some work before painting.

    Check out this earlier thread which has measurements of the accurate GH armour.

    You make it sound like an old style GT would fit perfectly. I have a set of this. The bottom measurement you posted as 47.5cm on yours, is 38cm on mine. At it's widest point at the top, mine appears to stop at 51cm as opposed to your 55cm.

    well my armour seems to be somewhere between the Gino and GH armour. Does anyone know what type of armour it is? And what versions are smaller? Can anyone who owns a smaller version take some measurements?

    sounds interesting Qui-Gonzalez. What is the width of your old Gt armour? The measurments from my first picture would be helpful.

    I know that the now defunct GT did do a few sets of "larger" armor. I personally test fitted a few.
