I was wondering if there were any armourers out there doing kastenbrust reproductions. I thought Mac and Gillaspie did some work with the style, but that seems to be the limit of it.

I'm working on a harness myself and was hoping to see others interpretations of the limited pieces and artwork from the time period.

Hi,

I think that Peter Müller in Germany did quite a bit of work regarding research and reproducing the kastenbrust a few years ago.
I also seem to recall seeing some pictures of one that Peter Fuller made a while back. I certainly have never made one , or even been asked about making one.
Probably James Gillaspie is your best bet to ask, it is a period that he seems to specialise in.
Please share some pictures of the harness you are working on, it is always nice to see what others are making Happy

Regards,

Russ

I appreciate the info. Any chance that you know if Müller has a website?

Here is a link to the progress thread I have up on the armour archive.

It is still in a very rough stage, but progress has been good the last week or so. I'm hoping to get to the cleaning up stage within two weeks.

Mr. Hinton,

Unfortunately I do not know if Peter Müller has a website, but you could contact him via the Armour Forum.

www.armsandarmourforum.com

Nice work, it is coming along nicely ! It is really nice to see someone making some thing different. I will look forward to seeing some more pictures of the completed project. Happy

Regards,

Russ

Peter Mullers site is http://www.plattnerwerkstatt.de/ don't think he's updated in a while as he's done some seriously tasty german armour that's not on there.

Christian Wiedner, another very good german armourer has just made a replica of a kastenbrust, though the armour is aimed for stage combat: http://www.plattnerei-wiedner.de/produkt_details.php?prodid=18

Well, that´s a great link, didn´t know him yet, thanks. He has some nice pieces and the lines/shapes look promising in the pictures.
