RP Models 75mm Parthia Cataphract Catafratari

    Finally finished this stunning resin kit from RP Models, no build issues at all, hands on the lance were tricky though as i could have done with a 3rd arm (!) to hold it all in place, in the end I used some slow setting super glue to get things lined up, but then the problem was it took 30 seconds to set, which seemed like a lifetime!
    The whole model has been painted in various acrylics with paints from the usual suspects - Vallejo, Tamiya & Ammo.
    Thoroughly enjoyed building and painting this one. And just in time for Scale Model World in Telford this weekend (9th & 10th Nov)

    Thanks for looking.

    Well chuffed.
    Walked around the competition area, collecting my entries and looked over towards the table where this model was and spotted a little plastic card, so tried to act all nonchalant and wondered round. Only gone and got a Bronze!, Maybe if i had glued the rider to the camel, so it could be picked up might have been higher lol !! :LOL::LOL:

    Hi Steve

    CONGRATULATIONS on the award should have been higher IMO

    Nice note from " judges" ...perhaps it's easier to transport separately for you ?

    Look forward to the next from you

    Happy benchtime

    Thanks very much for the kind words.

    To be fair, so did I, but then I would as its mine ! :), maybe if he was glued to the camel, they would have felt safer picking him up to get a closer look and it may have been placed higher, who knows.
    Anyway Hugo was impressed so thats good enough for me.
    Maybe I will try and get to Euro next September and take it with me plus Kuthulun. I thought the silver winner was better than the Gold Winner, but as it was the same painter who scooped both doubt he was that concerned so good on him.
    Next up is a little figure from Scale Bro's - Leon then i will do Anubis I think.
