    This is a metal kit from New Hope Design. I bought the kit in Atlanta for $2.50, no art work or painting details, it became my new project. This was an old kit from the 1980's? and needed ,as I got into it, massave prep work to get it ready to paint. Had to make a few parts. Once I primed the figure and started to paint I could see there were tiny pin-holes and cracks all over the figure. Made a thin paste of sculpting putty and brushed out the holes. I like learning new things and it was fun to see what I was doing was working to clean it up. This is the first horse I painted. Thanks for looking, Mike

    I like it and a solid buy at $2.50. I think the bear skin could use a little more depth but everything else looks very clean. Nice work sir. I hope to see you in Dallas at the end of the month.

    It's always nice to see old figures revived and yours is not an exception. Nicely done.

    Good work Mike, you´ve painted it very well. I like the horse, leather, shield and ground. I like to see this figure, me too I painted a few of New Hope and the quality changed depending in to modeller, but they had a very extended catalogue.
