Very well done indeed! The mask is so neatly done! Love it!
BTW what is the half moon shaped material? is that playmo?

No, that is Lego. :-X
Which reminds me,
I was going to ask what Lego set you got that from...
and if Lego still sells it?

thanks playmofriends!!

@PrimusPilus: I still have a thing against resins or something non-PM or non-Lego on my customs but like the crescent, sometimes I cant help it  :P but the part has to look PM-like so if I used resins, it wont be as detailed as our Spanish master's  ;)

No, that is Lego. :-X

:-[ :'( :-\ non-PM non-Lego WoT....would you believe its the gold cap from a bottle of Ribena(grape concentrate)?  :P
please dont ask me to perform the seppuku(hara-kiri) for this shame  :-[ :-[ :-[
I still have much to do  ;D true, Lego had many Samurai sets (I thought PM would do much better with a larger scale but the samurai special, I better keep my comments to myself) but have never tried buying parts from them, not as easy as DS I think.

LOL! :D
From a grape soda?
Very creative! :)9
Wish we had some here,
I would so add them to my Samurai. ;D

Just a thought,
but would you like to join the PlaymoFriends world map?

I can post one of these caps to you when I open the next bottle  ;) just give me the mailing address.

Thanks for the invitation but I will be a laggard participant if at all...let me quietly modernise my still primitive samurai army (I'm planning ashigarus with arquebusers next! please dont say 'cant wait to see them' my Katana makers need time to copy your spanish muskets and mass produce them :P)

Wow, cheng, you excel yourself again and again - that custom really hits new heights  :wow: :wow: :wow: :wow: :wow: :wow:  and I think the Ribena bottle top can be excused!    :)

The helmet is familiar - it seems like a fireman's helmet apart from the top, so where does it come from, please?

The mask seemed familiar, too, but I thought you had used the newer breathing mask.  With the picture of the mask turned 180 degrees, it's origin is clearer.

I had to use the old knight helmet without the visor for 2 reasons  :P (1) I dont have to drill the top 'breathing hole'(some think that its for threading their hair through, but its not, its just that they are constructed from radial pieces and will leave a hole at the top, maybe avoid having to shampoo their hair on long campaigns  :lol:
(2) I need the visor pegs to hold the half moon (maybe I'll take a look at the firemen helmets again  ;))

thats another 'view'  :P .(I dont have a newer breathing mask but thanks for the idea, I'll take a look in PlaymoDb and thanks Heather)
