    Hi, I happen to have two Taisho kits and have not the courage to start painting either of them. How would I go about selling one of them please?

    Hello everyone! I painted a few more of my figures. They are without stands, because they will be on two different dioramas. 90 mm. Painted with acrylics Polуcolor and AK.

    Good luck to all,
    Olga Zernina.

    Fantastic work... though I'd still like to see one in the stark white make-up, shaven eyebrows etc as per my previous post (some of the photos show this, but its not reflected in the figs).

    I painted the next two Japanese in an attempt to restrain my excessive love of patterns, but a customer asked for a patterns on a shirts and a tattoos on a backs.

    Great work - but the tattoo on a samurai is against etiquette and a marker of the yakuza and underworld figures. your customer got it wrong !!!

    Well, that means I have a Japanese criminal who took away the clothes and bow from the samurai (criminals do even worse things) and he runs away from the crime scene, shooting arrows at the police.

    Intersting subject good comments.

    Late Pat Bird. I have one in my own primer! I will get a photo posted ASAP! Original bought before from him he died. More anon. {in UK!}
    I have my own painted TAISHO by early Ray Lamb, out of Hinchliffe!
    Ray preduced some very good ones! in 90mm as did his son Julian.

    How long before these and other excellent collector figures appear on Antiques Road Show. Who will be the BBC selected experts! Young blood?

    I agree with you!
    As examlpe - Several month ago I've seen one Samurai girl with katana. I asked the price of kit.
    The price offered for me was 2500 euro after discount (painted figure). I explained that is't a reason to sell so high price.
    After negociation I paid 600 euro to my best friend Ruslan Vorobiov and he created similar master model in 2 weeks.))
    Now you know that it is possible to buy the kit 90mm in resin or metal from legionminiatures.org for 50 euro.)
    I think that is a fairy price, if you like to ask top quality painting you can ask my friend Alex Buriak and 400 -500 euro.
    Everuthing are sipmple.)

    I had this idea too, to approach Ruslan for a custom made sculpture of a Samurai rider, as the Arsenyev 54mm figures (not talking about their 120mm range prices which are stratospheric) are ridiculously expensive.But my collection of Samurai's, mostly custom painted and some lucky picks (see above), consist of 60+ figures, displayed in single acryl boxes, already occupy too much shelf place in my reasonaly sized flat. I'm now very picky to add new figures to my collection. The quality must be superior and the price right,and not to forget about historical accuracy ! And for the latter reason I have a love/hate relationship towards these Russian figures. Especially the overpriced "museum" quality ones. But as one can see on Zerninas newest figures our critique is not totally ignored, when she explicitly states she "restrained" her pattern work :) I wonder when the first female samurai appears painted in the style suggested by NeilW above, which was quite common among the Edo aristocratic class.

    I've just discovered these and I have to say I am totally blown away by your sculpting and painting. I don't care about accuracy , your artistry is astonishing!
