    Casting is variable: from excellent to slightly crude.
    But given how inexpensive these sets are, they're fantastic value for money. And you just put a bit of effort into construction.

    Lead Alloy Foil?
    Is that the posh name for wine bottle tops ;)
    You will be melting sprues down to make liquid plastic next......

    Horrible photo, but straps are underway.
    Audio entertainment is 3 July 160 anniversary episode of Addressing Gettysburg.

    You can't have too much of a good thing.

    Left hand in place.
    Shall I give him a rifled musket or leave him playing air guitar?

    Indeed.
    No luck with 1/35 electric guitars, so it's a Springfield rifled musket after all.
    Once it's all trimmed and built, the painting can commence

    Ahem…
    The shoulder strap will need a bit of attention to make it “hang” better.

    Hi David

    Springfield looks better rather than a guitar !

    Straps a easy fix and then it's the primer and painting

    Have fun

    Current bedtime reading.
    Both highly recommended. And indispensible together.
