Just picked this suite of Armour up at my local charity shop and now intend to bash it into a full set of plate Armour for one of the Guy's Camoflarge is looking pretty impressed and hope's he get's the old kit made for him Twisted Evil

Real Knight's metal Armour New Project IMGP8664_zpsoeaky24r

It's a bit bigger than Camoflarge but maybe the legs were made too long as the chest proportion seems to be good size and the helmet may fit

Real Knight's metal Armour New Project IMGP8665_zpsxwr34wh9

I'm sure with a few adaptions I will make this fit or use a slightly bigger trooper scratch

Let Battle Commence......... Suspect king lol!

Yes mate, I have started taking it to bits and it was made of old food cans proberbly in Spain or somewhere like.

its really crudely put together on the inside and will need a lot of trimmimg, but yes I will have to cut it into sections and joint it, just like the real armour would be fitted scratch
