There's a nice little photostory in today's Guardian about the guys producing armour for the Papal Swiss Guards.


The armour is Renaissance-style, of course, though I did wonder if this actually belongs in Ultramodern!

Wonder if they are heat treating it or leaving it as mild steel?

Also curious as to how much of their time is put into the production of the 9 harnesses per year? A fair bit of extra detailing on those helmets.
