Product in Depth

The classic suits of armour worn by Japan's famed samurai warriors evolved over more than a thousand years to reach a peak of artistry and sophistication. Constructed from small steel plates laced together with silk to allow for free movement, the samurai's lightweight, flexible 'lamellar armour' was equally adapted for fighting on foot or on horseback. Later, after the invention of firearms, larger plates were used to provide extra protection for the chest, back and other vulnerable areas.

This 1:2-scale replica of Masamune's armour stands 80cm high and is modelled in amazing detail. Each separate plate of the lamellar armour is an authentic miniature replica made in metal, laced together in the same way as the real thing, using the traditional methods employed in feudal Japan. It includes the chest armour, shoulder protection, thigh and shin guards and gauntlets, topped by the iconic helmet with its neck guard and fearsome faceplate.

Including a display stand, this Samurai Armour is a fascinating project, suitable for beginners as well as more experienced modellers, that will also appeal to anyone interested in the history of Japan and its legendary samurai warriors.Your concise build guide is sent with each shipment, along with your high-quality parts.
