Greek Hoplite Pt2

Wow, didn't realize it's been so long since my last post, sooooory, been a bad blogger! Too busy reading all your guyseses blogs.

 As I said before, there are some huge gaps in the legs and arms that would need to be filled in:





 Took all my time just to fill and sand these and I still might need to go back and do more, but here is what everything looks like now:






  While there is supposed to be a small seam on each side of the breast plate, since they were actually two pieces that the soldier tied and clamped over his torso, the gaps were to gnarled to leave as they were.



  I left the gap in the back of the greaves, these things sort of snapped on so there was a natural gap there. Will also have to to something about the toes.


 Having a hard time with the skirt and the leather strips that hang over it. They don't fit around tightly, there is a gap that I will have to fill by creating two more leather strips.


 And this is how tall it is, it's not glued or anything, just a dry fit.
