You certainly have a lot on the go at the moment Andy, don't know how you can fit it all in. So far your Armour is looking great, Im still waiting for pack 11 to arrive, never been this late before. Still it gives me time to do some work on one of the additions to the Armour... Keep up the good work.. Bob.

Hi Andy, Cool

I`m loving this kit and your build diary.

My grandson would actually be able to wear that to a fancy dress party, now wouldn`t that be cool, but I think he would have to be super glued to a seat so it didn`t get damaged. LOL LOL

ooops, hang on a minute, that may be classed as child abuse !!

Wonder if you`d get away with sellotape.

LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

Keep up the good work it`s FAB.

BigGrin Hi Derek
Your right it would easily fit a small child and i have already been asked but i think its like you say not for the rough and tumble of kids but the super glue may get you arrested.
Thanks for looking in and your comments

Fantastic work Andy, I'm not much good with sewing - is it fairly simple work with this kit or not? Also, I wonder if there are any suppliers of half size movable mannequins to use with this?

BigGrin Hi Steve
No idea on the mannequins but its just simple sewing along plates or using the chain on the mail and some edge work, its the lacing that can be a pain as the laces all have to be prepared with points and sealed ends and the laced in the correct manner for the tassets, although all the processes are quite simple after the 1 st tasset is compleated.
Thanks for looking in and your comments
