Kabuto (兜, 冑) or Japanese War helmet worn by samurai

Elements of the helmet that I will try to incorporate into my model.

Hachi (helmet bowl)

Shikoro (neck guard)

Tatemono or datemono (helmet crests)

Fukigaeshi (wing- or ear-like projections on both sides of the kabuto)

Mabizashi (brim or visor)

Shinobi-no-o: Kabuto would be secured to the head by a chin cord (shinobi-no-o)

Ukebari (hachi lining
