    Thanks Chris, I hope their gear is made of stainless steal.

    Thanks Oldfireguy, I think so :)

    Thanks Trung.

    Thanks Arthur.
     
  7. Great work! Those are good looking costumes. It appears only the yellowish bright ones are stainless, the later shots appear to be the regular rustable steel. The brimmed hat is a wonder of rivet work. Too bad the first blow across the brim would render the wearer blind and.......dead. :rolleyes: Fascinating series. Thanks.
