    • Hello everyone.
    • A samurai, the size of 90 mm, if he stood in full growth. The actual size is 60 mm. Three head options to choose from.
    • The samurai corresponds to the end of the 13th century, the period of the Mongol invasion. At this time, the samurai fought defensive battles from hiding. He is dressed in o-yoroi armor, corresponding to this period. Sudji-kabuto helmet with horizontally positioned sikoro. Weapons - long bow, long sword tati, short sword tanto.
    • This figure was made in January, unfortunately the photo of the master model has not been preserved. Photos of metal copies have been preserved. I hope you like this samurai!

    Fantastic sculpts!
    I like all things Samurai especially Samurai in O-Yoroi armour in 90mm and larger.
    I have been studying Samurai, collecting and building Samurai kits since the early eighties. I also restore antique Samurai dolls.

    Keep up the excellent work.

    Received a copy of this Samurai archer sculpt. Again, just like the Samurai with hand cannon the detail is incredible. It also comes with three heads. All three heads are full of Japanese character and have good eyes. What really amaze me is the sculpt and casting for the O-yoroi kabuto. Who said you can only achieve fine casting from resin. Just take a look at the kabuto in white metal. Apparently Vladimir also does his own casting too.

    Again, I will back Felix up on this one. Exceptional work all around. Highly artistic and incredibly accurate. I received it along with the Momoyama samurai with the hand Canon.
    Vladimir Vasilenko is a true revelation. Hope he goes on to produce more samurai.
