    New to Scale Mail

    I'm new to working scale mail & I need to make LARP grade scale armor. My current project is a scale breastplate that I want to back with leather. I'm using Medium scales & need to accommodate for a larger than average bust. What is the best way to attach scales to leather? Should I attach them as I build the section? Or wait until the section is complete? Are there areas I shouldn't back with leather? Is there a certain size the scale sheets should be before assembly? (ex. 5 X 5) Is there a more efficient way of building the sheets than attaching 1 scale at a time?
