    Here our new figure:

    SQUADRON OF AMHARA GROUP. "PENNE DI FALCO". ASKARI - 1938

    Sculpted by Antonio Zapatero.
    Boxart by José Luis Ruiz and Miguel Jimenez-Bravo
    Material: Resin (*)
    Size 54mm

    NOTE (*) Due to the horse's posture (gallopping), we have decided to produce this figure in resin.

    Lovely addition to the range, Miguel. Terrific little piece...might need a pin in that leg though.

    Hi Adrien,
    I do not want to sound impolite, but I do not usually send photos of the exploded views of my figures. If you are a follower of this forum, you will know that the quality of casting in white metal of my figures is at the highest level. Despite this being my first resin production, the quality level of the brand had to continue to be maintained. It is for this reason alone that I have no problem attaching a photo with the exploded view of the figure.
    I hope the photo meets your expectations.
    Regards.

    Dear Miguel

    Nice to see, I like what you do .
    Please note on your product page, good description of the piece and vey interesting text about who it represent, but, there is no informetion about size ( you have to look first at " about Us" to see it's all 54mm ),
    and no price, you have to go to "add to basket" to see it

    Best

    Hi Michel (Mirofsoft)
    Thank you very much for your words about the indication of the size and price of the figures. At first, on the products page appears the phrase "White metal figures to assemble and paint. Size - 54mm." and when you click to see the details and photos in large the figure appears the price € 65.00, no need to go to the "add to basket".
    On this occasion, being the resin figure, this circumstance has been specified.
    And of course, the first thing we think about is the public that sees the website and who our product is aimed at.

    Hi Neil,
    Thank you for your comments. I will try, briefly, to answer them. The historical review that accompanies each figure is the same as the one that appears in the figure review on the website. In all series we try to ensure that the historical rigor of the figure is at the highest level.
    As for accompanying an exploded view of the figure, since for the price it is worth, it would be very interesting, I do not understand the meaning: I do not know if the comment is that the figures are expensive, or that for that price, what less to accompany more information with a photo of the exploded view.
    As a collector before a manufacturer, I don't remember which brands of the prestige of Pegaso, Andrea Miniatures, Romeo Models or Metal Modeles, etc. nor in forums like this or on their own websites, do they appear photos with their exploded views.
    The experiences I have had in this regard have not served the customer to buy it, not even a simple reply to say thank you.
    I do not know if I have been able to respond to your comments.

    Hi Miguel,

    It seems that translating software is causing some confusion and misunderstanding :(

    Yes, the link is to your site: I was commending the useful information that you give (y)

    Regarding 'for what it's worth': in English it simply means 'this is my opinion but it may be of little value'. Nothing to do with monetary value (y)

    Regarding 'exploded views': I just believe that this is of interest and is useful to potential buyers and cannot see any real problems with including them :unsure:

    As you may have seen, many manufacturers post such views on this site.


    NOW LET'S TRY A GOOGLE TRANSLATION (I assume Spanish):unsure:
    Hola Miguel

    Parece que traducir software está causando confusión y malentendidos :(

    Sí, el enlace es a su sitio: estaba elogiando la información útil que brinda (y)

    Respecto a 'por lo que vale': en inglés simplemente significa 'esta es mi opinión pero puede que tenga poco valor'. Nada que ver con el valor monetario (y)

    Con respecto a las vistas explosionadas': solo creo que esto es de interés y es útil para los compradores potenciales y no veo ningún problema real al incluirlos: no estoy seguro :unsure:

    Como puede haber visto, muchos fabricantes publican estas vistas en este sitio.


    DID THAT WORK OK ? :nailbiting:

    I think it’s reasonable question when resin is used for the first application by Miguel ..while the website may not be perfect, Miguel’s service most certainly is..he’s managing a missing delivery to me well beyond expectations..looks after his customers when others might cease caring once an order is shipped..full marks for care and attention, and for interesting subject. Painting challenges are a huge part of the enjoyment to our pastime..

    Neil, it worked, it worked.
    Thank you very much again for the clarifying comment. I feel that my English is very poor and the computer translators sometimes are not helpful enough. I appreciate the clarifications regarding the price, since I had not understood it correctly.
    P.S. Thank you for your effort to accompany your words in Spanish.
    Best.

    Thanks for your comment. I have to tell you that the horse's supporting leg has a steel rod, ending in the usual pin.

    Nap,
    Thank you very much. We continue trying to make the figures like the general public. It was a challenge, this time, to make a resin figure. We hope we have succeeded.
