I used to have templates for Lorica Segmenta and a few other patterns as well, they are pretty easy to remake. If I can be of help let me know.

I have worked with it a few times and you can dish and planish it but it will tend to split and of course it would completely ruin the paint. It's also a real pain in the ass! As for bending it, you can use a piece of iron pipe 6"- 8" in diameter and bend it by hand then use a mallet to even it out.
Also, it looks to me like you are using brass rivets, copper rivet are much better and eaiser to work with. You can get rivets and spurs at most leather supply houses. Skora Leather up on Ft. Lowell Rd. is a good place. Are you using a rivet tool or are you just hammer-closing them?
