German suit 1480
This armour was made for Rod Walker from Australia. It was based on a original suit from a private colection from Germany. Suit is dated from 1480 Germany.
It is combined from three diferent gauges of mild steel: 1.3, 1.5 and 2mm.
Breast plate is made complete from 2mm, the elbows and knees are from 1,5mm.
The sallet is made from 2mm and the visor was raised from one piece. The rest is from 1,3 mm.
It took me almost 9 month to build and you can see production images here.
Greaves still have to be replaced with new ones, that will fit closer to the calf.
