The mannequin is going to be dressed in what the samurai wore under his armour, Kimono Hakama etc. That means that the armour can be displayed in either mode.. I'm not advocating that others should do as I do. Its just what I do...

Hi Andy, BigGrin

I love watching this build come together (even though it`s not my cup of tea, so to speak), it`s using different skills to the normal modelling ones and is an inspiration.

Looking good and will keep watching with interest Cool

Oh by the way does the skill set include darning socks Laugh Laugh

"ONLY JOKING HONEST" Blushing

Just had another thought could get the good lady to do this one, then get the best of both world`s Love Love

Keep up the good work

Regards

BigGrin Hi Del
Thanks for looking in and your comments as for darning socks I think that just might send me running for the hills screaming. Its certainly a tottaly different way of doing a kit but in the same way enjoyable just because it is different

BigGrin Hi Steve
Thanks for the comments and looking in as for a blade of any description that is not on my list as I feel the Armour as it stands is more than imposing enough with out its box to stand on its 80cm tall and the box will take it over a metre tall. More than enough to be noticed there without any additions as im sure you will agree

BigGrin Hi All
Today I compleated the Thigh Guards by stiching the two together at the top and adding the waist tie/belt to the top edge. The next thing was to add the leather patch and leather hook with flower motif, then the cord was attached here. The tags and buttons were added to the two straps to finish off this part. More on the leg armour shortly

BigGrin Hi All
The backing has now been added to the leg guard and the tie straps added, finally the cardboard centre from a toilet roll was used to act as a leg was added [ I still need to paint this black ]. Just some lacing left on the other leg guard . More soon
