    WOW! Nice work! I would dare say as nice as the new Pegaso kit. You can certainly see the influence. Keep us posted on this one!

    What an exquisite piece! I only wish that it was commercially available as I'd buy it in a second.

    Amen to that...would buy a few of those...Kostas should, in my humble opinion, gotten Best in Show in Boston...and he is a very nice man.
    Just got my copy of M. Roberts new Pathan...beautiful piece with lots of possiblities.
    Anyone know where I can get a Soviet light machine gun in 90mm?

    A very nice smaller version of a much larger figure. I especially like the drapery effects he has done and the true scale thickness he has achieved. Maybe it's angle of the photos but the torso from the waist up looks a little long. again this is based on viewing the photos which can sometimes be misleading.~Gary

    hello
    I just have this practical-historical question, while admiring this splendid figure:
    namely, why in both Pegaso and Kostas piece the naked sword is rested point first on some sort of a very hard ground?
    after all this was a stabbing weapon (mainly, at this point of medieval sword development, although slashing was still the equally good option) and such handling could have blunted the point thus affecting the effectivness of the weapon. Just wondering, because artistically speaking - after seeing this pose in countless Hollywood movies or 19th-20th century art, including comix, - it is very appealing :)

    Stunning work. :eek:

    Great example of the sculptors art - the detail is so clear & precise.

    This is further proof that Kostas is one of the very best sculptors in the hobby. His ability to portray the delicacy and flow of cloth with putty is nothing short of astonishing.

    He got my vote for best of Show at Boston as well.

    What more needs to be said?

    Awesome!

    Not generally at this date (although possibly for the sword depicted). In the 13th c. slashing was still the primary method of fencing as the design of blades shows. As far as this sort of abuse of a fine sword goes, even the Japanese didn't avoid doing this it would seem.

    What's much more important historically is how either man would get the shield off his back with the belt being so tight!
