    This is a true 77mm figure from Series 77 as opposed to the 90mm American series. I have had it forever and finally decided to get it painted. It is an interesting figure with a relatively plain uniform but wonderful saddle detail.

    The kit was built straight from the box with only the base being enhanced. All painting was done in acrylics.

    A quick but fun project. Thanks for looking.

    Cheers,
    Ken

    Love those Series 77s. Excellent work as always. Just discovered a year or so ago that my great grandfather served in the RA and was posted to India in the mid 1890s and I have been looking for a suitable figure ever since. Hoping to find one in khaki, but will settle for the blue home service uniform.

    Well done and I like the way you have the saddle front and center. I'm a big fan of Series 77 and no matter the age of the figure (or in my case the painter :) the object is to have fun and this looks like it was.
