    when are your various samurai's ready for shipping ? I'm interested in three of your figures: the 90mm Ashigaru from the Nanboku-te period with no-dachi, your kneeling Samurai Archer and this Samurai with cannon !

    Received a copy of the sculpt. The level of detail is incredible. You need to view it under a magnifying glass to appreciate for all the fine detail. The quality of the white metal and casting is also first rate. There is also an extra casting of a sashimono to customize your figure. I have not seen such a fine Samurai kit for quite some time.

    Thank you, Felix, for your feedback!Such reviews give me the strength to make new figures.
    It's time to show progress on the Gorobei theme:)

    I have also received mine and I can add my impression of it which is identical to Felix's. It is one of the most historically accurate samurai kits I have ever come across. Vladimir is not only a master sculptor but also a samurai armor specialist. This is a true gem. Highly recommended.

    Thank you, Aris!
    I'm not a very good armor expert yet, but I'm trying to learn all the information I can find.In addition, I always consult with people who are competent in this matter and I am very grateful to them for their help.It helps a lot in my work.Other nuances are also important - clothing, appearance, proportions of the Japanese figure, features of the face.It is important for me to recreate all this on the figure, otherwise I will lose interest in it and I will not finish sculpting it.
