    Hello all,
    Finally finished this awesome kit from Frank Miniatures, I was trying to have it done for the Cheif Competition but work got in the way. It is a great kit, that goes together well but needs a bit of clean up, but then again I'm used to Pegaso and Andrea.
    I slightly changed the kit by locating the horse and rider away from the cows and replacing the tail with fibers from a rope. The kit is generally painted in Oils but I'm starting to use some Vallejo Acylics for some areas. The base and groundwork are scratch built.
    Thanks for looking, and feel free to comment

    Jason, Cheers mate, the horse just seamed to paint perfectly, first go, which is unusual, the Longhorns were a bit harder.
    Guy, Thanks, I know you like your early American stuff
    Nick, I'm glad you like the finished product, I think it all came together nicely

    Hi Ben,

    Superb work mate. The whole scene really comes together perfectly. Seperating the horse from the cattle was an inspired choice. Bravo.

    Ben, excellent finish and superb painting of the horse and longhorns (y)
    Am I right in thinking it's a Carl Reid sculpt.

    Hi Tony, thanks for your comments, now to get onto that Pirate again...Hehe
    Stralis and Ngai, Glad you like it, I enjoyed putting this one together and painting it.
    Mike, here's a salute to your home town, cheers mate.
    Ken, to be perfectly honest, I'm not sure who sculpted it as I have thrown the box out, but whoever did deserves credit for a superbly rendered piece. I originally saw this here on PF, and had to have it, something different and I love it
