Date took a dive this evening......



Damage isn't as bad as it might have been, still some extra work to do. Just about every glued joint on the cuirass has come apart (slow cure epoxy), plus the crest holder has come off the helmet. I also spotted one yellow tasset lace has pulled out. Otherwise seems OK.

Hope all repairs go well for you. I worry anytime someone starts trying to touch mine! Didn't you say you wanted to try some modifications? BigGrin

Thanks for the kind thoughts.

I've started sticking the cuirass parts back together, I'll do a bit each day. If I don't it might get left altogether..
