    Hello PF,
    I'll show person of my country to everyone. This guy was tougher than I expected. I spent a lot of time. But finally he was finished so I am relieved.
    I used polymer clay(super sculpey FIRM+Premo) and epoxy putty.

    Thanks Pierre. Commercialization is my goal. But I do not know yet whether or not to realize it.

    Great sculpt. The helmet bowl will looks better if it is a bit shorter, wider and more round at the top.

    Thank you Ometz. I also hope for it.
    Thanks again for the comment Yellowcat.
    I made urinari kabuto by referring to Masataka Sato's photo book. He is Japanese Armor repairer.
    In his book urinari is displayed as armament of the Azuchi Momoyama period end.
    Thanks for the nice words, Djoubri M.

    You’re a gifted artist. This is excellent work. I’m not into samurai etc, but this could almost convert me. My compliments.

    Great... and I speak as someone who is just now reviving a 45 year-old mounted samurai scratchbuild.

    The lacing has been driving me mad (coming around to a method of mass producing individual 'lames' which I can then build into the gessan and sode).
