    Default One of the last pieces

    I have been working on a fellows suit of armor for a while now. I just finished the left leg with this, the right leg to go and am finished.

    Gustov, would be cool to see a pic of the whole suit when you're done. Nice work.

    Rich I will do that when it is done. When complete I will have built and formed all but the skull of the helm and the breast and back, which I did modify.

    I hope to give it a test run next weekend at a ren fair. I have all except helm.

    That is fantastic. I don't remember if you have told us but is it actually wearable and, if so, how heavy does it feel?

    Absolutely stunning, Gustov.
    Now to find an 'oss and make some armour for that.
