    The kit was ordered from El Greco for an amazing 7 days international delivery (always provide great customer service). It consists of 23 grey resin parts packed in six zip lock bags and sandwiched between two pieces of foam inside a cardboard box. A mounted figure kit superbly sculpted by Alexander Deryabin and excellent casting in 75mm.

    Final thoughts: Congratulations to the sculptor for a superb kit which is well sculpted and well researched. Despise of one broken part, casting is excellent but not sure if there are metal rods inset in the rear legs for a rearing horse. An amazing kit. Highly recommended.
    Cheers,

    Felix
