This breastplate is a little different in that I put all the deep compound curving into the breasplate, and made the belly nice and flat. There is a 10 foot radius in the belly (plackart) and a 4 foot radius in parts of the upper breatplate. Should make the client look good.
Other details, double sliding rivets in back and picadills attached to the outside plates...those are the little bits of leather which keep the armour from scratching itself....they are held on by the copper rivets you can see in the above picture. The holes to lace the fauld into place are eyeletted....and should last a long time.
Not bad for what amounts to my "bottom of the line" armour.
