I think it was here I recently saw a link to a place that has DIY breastplate/fauld kits, but after searching I can't seem to find it again. Anyone remember where that was?

Thanks!

are you reffering to a plastic breastplate and fauld kit-appropriate to the a mid to late 14th cnetury kit? if so Chuck Davis (Cad) and Global effects sells them (or used to). then you cut to shape/style, and cover in velvet or brocade.

www.globaleffects.com

not sure of cads' site. on google look up chuck davis armourer.

hope this helps,

Aaron

GE is owned by Gaston AKA Chris Gilman.

I was refering to another kit altogether made by Chuck Davis AKA master cadwallen.

if I'm not mistaken there is another company that offers these as well can't remember the name. if I do I'll post it.

or are you looking for steel kits? if so I highly reccomend David Rylak AKA Cet. he offers RFH (rough from the hammer) as well as finished pieces. if you decide ot go the route of his RFH then it means you do the finishing work-planishing, edge rolling, fluting (if applicable), decoration, polishing...also depending on the metal you order he can heat treat and temper it too.

then there is also Zweihammer armoury who offers Valsgarde SCA helm kits, as well as gauntlet and crusader era helm kits.


hope this helps,

Aaron

Glad i could help.

do not hesitate to order from Dave. he is an honest man, and does great work, and always delivers.of all the people I know that have ordered from him are very happy with the customer satisfaction, and the final product.

I have an order with him now, so I highly recomend him.
