    I got sent this from Pegaso models several weeks ago and thought it time to open the box and take a look at this fine kit.

    Teutonic Knight XIV cent

    On first inspection the kit looks to be in good order after its journey with all 18 parts well protected between two layers of high density foam.

    Laying out all the pieces for inspection you can see the usual high quality of casting and detail the we expect from this company. Mould seam lines are very minimal on all parts.

    The lower part of the body/legs is made up of two separate parts which lock into each other quite nicely, any exposed joins will be covered once the other parts of the kit are attached, it slots into the supplied base quite nicely and is a good tight fit.

    The upper torso is a one piece casting and interlocks into the lower section without a problem, the dry run shows no filling needed at this stage.

    The arms are nicely cast and are a snug fit against the locating lumps on the upper torso, leaves the way clear to painting the heraldry then glue the arms on afterwards although I think they will cover most of the lower stomach and chest area.

    The Head/Helm drops nicely into place with ho gap visible, there is a removable chin guard which can be fitted in the open position if desired so to expose the mouth and chin, there is also a hint of eyeballs in the eye slits of the helm. The fur of the cloak is in one piece and drops on to the top of the shoulders and round the neck a real treat, really start looking the part once the helm is attached with this.

    The remaining parts of the cloak is made from two sections which fit together with three locator pins, it has been cleverly sculpted so that the joint is hidden in one of the folds of the cloak, the whole thing is then fixed under the large fur collar.

    Both hands are attached to the sword that is drawn, there is also another sword and scabbard that fits to the belt of the figure, still not figured out why this is yet?

    The last few pieces of this kit are the belt end, dagger and spurs all cast with the same level of detail and quality as the rest of the kit.


    Conclusion:

    Another fine sculpture/casting from Pegaso models, well cast and good fitting of all parts with minimum clean up, lots of painting possibilities of German knights of the this period, highly recommended for anyone interested in this era of history especially if you like 90mm figures.

    Thanks for the review! It's beautifully sculpted.

    Is it just me or does the figure look a bit too much Hollywoodish? It would be easily adressed with a change of heads though. Maybe they wore those huge winged helmets though.

    Thanks Tommi,
    90 mm is a big one (also the money) but i think it is worth to buy it
