I have just been able to complete the first prototype for the combined display stand.
I chose a heavy Kabuto that was missing its ukebari, as they are the most difficult to display with a mask. Here is the result. The mask sits okay as I was able to drop the cord. But it is also sitting too far inside the helmet space.
This photo shows the new stand, as you can see I was able to adjust the mask independently from the Kabuto. For this example, I pushed the menpo forward to the ridge of the mabezashi.
In this photo, you can see that the mask is pushed forward and is sitting in a better position than a normal stand. We are just making a tiny tweak that will hide the internal bars, this will make the stand suitable for hanpo. Also, you will be able to convert a full armour stand to use the mask adaptor.
If this goes to plan expect these stands to be under £40.00 each.
