    I have in my hands the second release from the new company of the well known Master Painter Man-Jin Kim, Man-Jin Miniatures. It is a bust of a knight, Draco bearer from the Battle of Hastings in 1/10 scale. It is casted in High Quality Resin (17 pieces). Also included one metal rod to represent the wooden pole of the Dragon’s head (Draco Standard) and one plastic pipe. Almost ready to paint. The only thing that you need to do is to remove the tiny molding blocks with a small razor or sharp knife. There are no molding lines or air bubbles!!! It is very impressive! I like very much the surface of this grey resin and the sculpting of Ju-Won, Jung!!! The fragile sideburns are carefully packed in a small piece of sponge to avoid any damage in transportation. Take a look at the following photos for more information and personal evaluation. For orders or inquiries please visit the site:

    Title: The Battle of Hastings
    Code: MJ10-002

    Hi Stelios,

    This is a lovely piece ..I have it in my GA....working its way to the front ...love the rather rotund body shape ..really nice pose as well , the standard is also a really nice sculpt as well and fits together well ..a real good casting as well ..as can be seen in your pictures

    I've got one of these and it's a beaut, well cast and very little clean up, the only bit of a niggle I have with it is the pole for the Draco isn't included which is a bit naughty, I know most have us have 2mm brass or similar rod/tube so can fabricate one, but it was stated that it was included and also it appears some do have it. It is a pretty important part but as I say don't let it stop you if you're thinking of getting just be aware of it

    Steve. Please contact Man Jin. I am sure he will send the missing part to you.

    It's no biggie Stelios it would cost him more to post it to me than it's worth in all honesty, just a heads up to other folks that it might be missing but it's worth what little work it is to make one as the rest of the bust makes up for it (y)
