Review Too little known brand MINIATURAS ARCABUZ Madrid

Discussion in 'Reviews , Video Reviews and Open Book' started by Zastrow.cuirassier, Jul 17, 2019.

  1. Zastrow.cuirassier A Fixture

    Led by the sculptor, designer, painter, finally the handyman RAFA CEBRIAN.
    3D bust and figurines
    I really cracked and bought all the range concerning the Spanish civil war is 4 busts 1/16 and 2 figurines 54mm
    All this in resin.
    a brand to discover or rediscover, Rafa is a member of Planetfigure and we have already had posts from him.

    One of the bust of the brand (my favorite actually), 1/16 °, small, but beautiful ... As for the scale I do not know what our bust specialists (Nap?) Think. Me it does not really bother me!

    My notes as usual:
    choice of subject: A +
    Sculpture: A +
    Molding: A +
    Packing: A
    Brand (communication, delivery time, price, etc ...): A ++

    The 3D version by computer and the version painted by Rafa

    For the documentation, I think that our Spanish friends can make us a better list than me!
    However, for the history of this terrible war I recommend the book of Antony BEEVOR:
    The Battle for Spain: The Spanish Civil War 1936-1939
    (Also available in French, Spanish, German....)

    A last word on the seriousness of this brand.(y)
    I contacted Rafa, a Sunday afternoon, I got his answer under less than two hours. I paid Sunday night, the figures were shipped on Monday morning and I received them on Thursday of the same week. Amazon is not better!;)(n)
    For more information contact Rafa via FB but the best is by mail:

    I forgot, very important you can already pre-order its future news (me it's done) :

    54mm resin

    I totally agree I have the earlier bust releases and once we have settled again after moving I will be buying these

    Rafa is a real skilled artist and a pleasure to deal with

    I have been corresponding with Rafa for several years and although 20th century is not a period of interest l have all of his Napoleonic work in both round and flat figures. He is indeed a pleasure to deal with and the quality of casting of his products is first rate.
