    This the Almond 90 mm. Mounted winged Hussar,a very rare and classic kit.
    The kit was produced by Almond miniatures many years ago, a fine company no longer in business.
    Many thanks to Steve, a fellow Planet member for providing the kit.
    Hope you enjoy this step by step.

    Roc, Can't tell you how pleased I am to see you painting up these old kits with your high level of quality and offering up the photos here for us to ponder. It is great to see these old gems and bring back some memories. This fellow is indeed a rare one, although last week one just went unsold on eBay (reserve set at $200 I think).
    Keep up the fine work. Missed you at Long Island this past week end.

    Walt and Pat, I love these old classic figures, in my opinion ,as good or better than any of the kits in today's market, pity these companies no longer exsist.
    I missed you guys too, something just got in the way,but I'll definitely be at MFCA.

    Interesting. May be it's the pic but the scale of the horse looks larger than the figure... :eek: ?

    Hey Keith, glad you checked in.
    As far as the scale being off, it's the pictures.

    Cheers
