    Looks like a nice clean cast.

    You've re-issued a couple of ex Michael Roberts pieces now. Do you have plans for any more?

    Hi Steve - yes, we have many more items to release but due to the pandemic and various lockdowns, plus Brexit, this has slowed their release. We hope to release them gradually in the coming months.
    Cheers,

    Thanks for the heads-up Matt. There were some lovely figures in the M.R. range, it's good to know that at least some more of them will be seeing the light of day again and have not been lost to the hobby.

    Interesting revived piece Matt. I have it in mind it is based on a picture by a well-known Western artist, possibly Frank McCarthy?

    Bang on Marco!(y) McCarthy, Griffing - two sides of the same coin. Both superb artists.

    Cheers for the memory-jogger!

    Nice to see this one back in production again.
    I got mine from El Greco back in 2017 when it was still a Michael Roberts kit.
    It was fun to put together and paint, and I'd recommend it to anyone other than a beginner.
    Marion and Alan Ball had an article on painting this kit on their website, which I found extremely helpful.
    Unfortunately, I have been unable to find it on their renewed site, so cannot give a link.
    Luckily, I downloaded it and did not delete it, so, for anyone interested, here it is ...

    You can find my effort HERE, together with the original link to the article, which can no longer be found.

    Cheers,
    Andrew
