    I'm sure that the end result will justify all the hard graft and frustration that lies ahead Ron!

    It was the horse that sold it :) Gonna need a lot of putty though , not that it's a bad fit but does need a fair bit of reinforcing , just the inevitable stuff with centrifugal casting with large pieces .
    But it's only been over the threshold about an hour or so and I can't put it down :D

    Might try a strawberry Roan on this :facepalm:

    The strawberry roan sounds good and with all that hair will look really classy.

    Done this myself a few years ago Ron .
    Fit is a lot better than than the crusader I found.Just lots of sub assemblies for painting.
    Also doesn't collapse over time like most rearing horses.

    Got to agree it's going together well at the moment and dry fits all seem good and don't see any real problems . May pin a couple of points here and there ie cloak to the body and rider to the horse , shield and helmet .
