    English Civil War Royalist Cavalier, Sculpted by Pete Morton.

    All the kit parts are supplied in a sturdy box folded between layers of bubble wrap.

    The kit is 75mm in scale and comes as eight buff coloured resin parts. Each part has small casting blocks that can be easily removed and sanded. A close inspection of the parts shows and excellent level of detail and good quality casting.

    Three views of the head shows the precision of detail that Pete has sculpted into this piece, also again we can see the quality of the casting process. The mould plug can be removed very easily.

    Front and rear views of the one piece casting of the body, small plugs to be removed at the feet and a very minimal mould line between the legs, very clean casting.

    Test fitting of the head shows off the pose of the figure, very nice fit.

    The arms and right hand holding the pistol will need to have the blocks removed to locate into the torso and wrist recesses.


    ecw7.jpg


    A close up of the sword and scabbard show some careful work is needed to remove it from the casting spru.


    ecw8.jpg


    A close up of the right arm and hand and pistol detail.

    The supplied base is in two pieces, the base and a mile stone which is the location of the left foot.

    Conclusion:
    A very nice offering from Maurice Corry Miniatures. Nice sculpting from Pete Morton, good level of detail and very clean casting. The figure has a nice pose and easy to assemble. Clean up and removal of resin blocks is minimal. Highly recommended for anyone interested in this era of history.

    Great revieuw Tommi,
    Thanks, seems a pretty crispy cast. I find (but that's my opinion ) the mouldblox large. And as i have always problems with removing mouldblox without damaging the figure this is gonna pass my door.
    But still find it a attractive figure.

    Hi Steve
    Your figure should be with you by now as it was posted on March 3rd-I have the receipt here in front of me!
    I've pm'd you also and I will scan your receipt in and send it to you via your email.
    It's obviously got caught up in the postal system somewhere and if you haven't received it by Monday I'll organize a replacement for you.
    Best wishes
    Pete
