Well, it looks like we have come to the end of this project. The shin guards are now a pair, the standard carrier is fitted to the rear plate, all that remains now is to polish and display, Oh yes and wait to see if a storage box is going to be forthcoming.

Even the DATE Mon is depicted on the Kimono.. The lower leg wraps are in the process of being made, the he will be dressed in his armour as one of the display methods, the second is as seen on the extended stand and the third is the traditional way on the storage box. but saying that, I was at the Pitt Rivers in Oxford last week, and there are several suits of armour on display both standing and sitting on the box.

I think a euoropean medieval armour would go well with this suit, maybe something for the future........Bob.
