    Tartar Miniatures recently released their Blackfoot Indian in 1/20th scale resin. Sculpted by Sergey Savenkov, a rising sculptor I have followed since his first attempts, he has achieved some amazing detail in his Blackfoot Indian.

    The bust arrived in a thin plastic box with the kit parts sealed inside a zip-lok bag. The bottom photograph shows the 3 parts of this kit.

    Above you see various views from all angles showing the attention to detail Sergey has achieved in his sculpting. You can also see pre-drilled holes on each side of the war-bonnet for location of the Buffalo horns.

    The Box Art painter, Sergey Popovichenko took the liberty of adding the horse hair tuffs at the top of the horns. These do not come with the kit. I find the casting to be very clean with no flash or seams to be removed. Excellent kit and highly recommended.
