    Recently Sergey Zlobov, owner of AuthorSculpt Miniatures released two 75mm Native American figures. The first I will review is the "Sacred Pipe" depicting a Native American holding up the Sacred Pipe in prayer to the sky. Cast in 9 gray resin parts.

    Arriving in Sergey's traditional sturdy brown cardboard box with all the parts to the kit sandwiched between two layers of foam with the parts sealed inside a plastic zip-lok bag.

    Above you see the main torso casting showing the amazing attention to detail Sergey has sculpted into this figure. A slight seam needs to be removed down the left side.

    Above you see the front and back of each arm and hand. A small casting block needs to be removed at the upper shoulder of each arm.

    Above you see the separate casting block with the decorative feathers for the pipe, the pipe itself as well as the head feathers and decoration that fits into a locater hole at the back of the head. One feather was loose in the bag upon arrival.

    Above are several photographs from AuthorSculpt showing the assembled figure and skull fastened to the base.

    An exceptional kit depicting a Native American Indian. Some slight seam lines need to be removed as well as casting blocks from the arms. Highly recommended.

    Not really my main interest but since I just started painting my first indian and am having a magnificent time painting him I may have to give this one a try. Also, the 75mm scale is now my favorite. Excellent review Guy.
