Another photo of one of the Gothic armours I have made. The suit is made from 20 to 14 gauge mild steel and brass.
This armour was made over a period of about 10 years, working on between other orders. I lost count of the time involved but I assume it was probably in the thousands of hours.
This suit was sold to the UK Royal Armouries where it is now being used for educational programs and demonstrations.
While I am moderately happy with how the suit turned out I know I could have done a lot better. A couple of years ago a customer ordered another suit like this from me and has given me the OK to go all out on it
Now that I am caught up on most of my previous orders I have started on the new suit. Because I will be making this new armour much more detailed, but will be working on it full time, I expect it to take 18 months or so to complete. I will try to post pictures of the new harness as it progresses.
