Legionaires… Madata Captate!

We now need to design our legionnaire so that he has all the correct equipment using cardboard and paper so the children visiting the museum can see how the armour was worn and carried.

What pieces of equipment will you need to design?

How will you make sure they are the right size for the model?

Which pieces will the model “put on” first?
