Charles A's Armour complete

This is a long bodied (21 inch from collarbone to navel!) large two piece suit of armour. Very pretty in my not so humble opinion. The tassets and faulds are fairly straightforward...and the sliding rivet works perfectly. The belts "may" have to moved up a bit, right now they are sitting in the second to last hole. That doesn't give a whole lot of wiggle room. OTOH, these fancy holes sort of force it.

From the side, you can see the nice profile. I know it will look much better ON him than it does draped over some random machinery in my shop. The straps are untouched by lacquer, and can be dyed by Charles if he chooses. Otherwise, in the sun, they will sun tan to get a rich hazelnut brown like an old saddle.

So, another two piece down. And Charles wants a gorget with this armour. Well, I didn't have plans for the evening....
