This is a really good example of the South Tower "Two Piece" design of armour. Its not a standard two piece suit since of course, the back is three piece and the fauld is three piece.
This was Tom's second armour.... It is a two piece chest, three piece back plate with sliding rivets on the front and the faulds.
It is very rough and ready...sort of like he is....
I used commecial tool belts for over the shoulders. He is a big fellow, those tool belts look like skinny little one inchers in this photograph...my hand shows the scale. You realize after a bit that this is a honkin' big back plate.
I don't know that I really like the leather attachment straps on the tassets...it is a bit of a departure from the usual laces. But hey...such straps were used a lot in real life. I didn't think that the tasset buckles were appropriate for the violence Mr. Bourland is planning to put is armour through. But straps like this are okay.
