    Hugo,

    It's a fantastic piece and I cant wait to get on with it, just pinned the large parts so I can get a primer coat on them.
    Make sure you have a rest when you get all the pieces sent off. You and nuno deserve it.
    Take care friend

    Hi Hugo,
    Another fantastic piece. Very nice and clean casting, My only concerns are either the rider looks big or the camel looks too small. The camel legs are short too. Even for a young camel the legs are long. I am using Steve pictures for the comparison hope he wouldn't mind.

    Regards,

    Felix

    Hello Mr. Yellow Cat

    In first place I want to express my gratitude to your message and thank you for your concern. Truly appreciated... But if you allow me I would like to express just a little comment. I will let a few images below...

    Like the humans, the animals have different sizes. If you see in some photos that I take, a person with almost 2 meters will be bigger than a person with 1 meter and a half. The rider has the lower body to the right, as it needs an impetus to pry the spear accompanied by the movement contrary to the camel movement. This position allows to guarantee a greater balance in the mount, guaranteeing force for the use of the spear, and later stocked on the enemy.

    Another thing... There are different type of species of camels... I remember 3 of them... Bikaneri Camels, Jaisalmeri Camels and Gujarati Camels... This species are from India... In North Africa are different types too... Its just another idea that i would like to left...

    Thank you so much for believe in RPmodels. You are the motor for we always try to be better and try to improve. Your strength and believes are the most important thing.

    Again THANK YOU so much.
    With best regards

    Hello my Friend Steve

    Thank you so much for the comparison of the old camel... We are using a new size/numeric software and because of that the sizes of the figure today have more accuracy... Always try to improve... Try to grow up in the hobby...

    Thank you so much.
    Big hug.

    This is a hugely complex and well executed sculpt. Kudos for a job well done.

    Choosing what to include and where to stop when doing a bust or partial figure is a difficult choice. From what I can see, the half-camel choice may be artistically sound. It certainly makes for interesting boundaries and shapes. Very unique.

    Nap, A great review of a super kit from RP. Many thanks also for the photos. They helped me immensely in figuring how to properly assemble this little beauty. I have the 75mm version and your photos also confirmed my suspicions that the saddle had arrived with the front saddle horn was missing. I just have to make a new one and I can start this one.
