[MOC] Lifesize Chain Mail

Recommended Posts

Mail or maille (also chain mail(le) or chainmail(le)) is a type of armour consisting of small metal rings linked together in a pattern to form a mesh.

Mixel hinges used instead of rings contains 3,820 pieces and around 5 hours build time. Fits 36" chest and unsuccessfully tried to wear it as the hinges kept popping out. Could be layered outside to keep them together but it would make it much heavier. So it's done for now...

Looks great! Shame you couldn't wear it, I would have liked to see it in use.

Might try some mods later to make it more stable.

Then I want to see a video of you being attacked with a lego sword or axe!

Nice idea, I wonder if it is worth having it "open back" so it is easier to put on without breaking.

Actually one of the mods I was going to try and see if it works or at least with minimal damage.

The closest way to show the size/scale of the chain mail armor without actually wearing it and I've tried a couple of times with disastrous results. Small size hoodie, 36" chest...
