- Konnichiwa all,
Personally, I dont know what all the hullabaloo is about plastic anyways;
I'll admit that on a "european armour", almost any kind of naked plastic
part sticks out like nothing else... ick! So much for historical
recreation... besides, for those people who dont use barrels, a sheet of
plastic is more expensive than a sheet of 16g. steel... well, in Montreal
anyway. :) BUT, having made a few suits of japanese armour and showing it to
people in pictures, the first question is always "what kind of plastic did
you use?" and yet they are always metal... I will give praise to plastic for
the weight though... but I still like it better out of steel... I think the
feel is nicer and it's less bulky. Besides, you need metal parts ANYWAY in
that armour of yours... might as well make it of one medium.
My two zeni`s worth...
