    Packaged in Young's traditional black box with all the parts sandwiched between layers of foam. The small parts are sealed inside a clear zip-lok bag. A full color photo is on the box lid for reference in painting.

    Another classic bust produced by the Young team. Loaded with detail and character I am sure we will see many of these at the future shows. Highly recommended.

    Thank You for showing those pics, Guy!

    I will buy it - and I'm very glad, that all the parts I will change, are individual ones!

    I've ordered this piece and expect it next week... this will be my first bust and I'm very excited to get dug in. Not only is this a beautiful sculpt but it holds personal interest for me and my family history, being a descendant of these proud Ukrainian warriors, right up to my grandfather, who was in a Kuban Cossack unit in WW II. Not only will I be trying to do right by this fantastic sculpt but also to pay hommage to my own heritage.

    Guy, thank you for posting a well done review of this piece, giving me a good idea of what I have to look forward to. And hats off to Young Miniatures and Greeny Ahn for producing such a lively and detailed sculpt... a piece like this makes painting an absolute joy.

    Hope I can do it justice

    Thanks for the review, Guy! Zamechatelnіy bust. I already ordered the Polish Hussars. Cossack on the queue.

    I want to show the fragment from the film "With Fire and Sword" This movie can be a wonderful inspiration for the artist at work on a bust.
