preface


Since Pegaso started releasing, "objects" for interior "home decoration" or "exterior" elements, figures bases started to look more appealing.

A series of products from the Figure leading Italian Brand based in Sienna, that will ease and speed up a lot, figure painters, since you will have a ready scenery just paint and not to build from scratch.

The Kit


Nicely boxed in Pegaso's, well known, hard carton boxes and with internal protective material, this piece will get in your hands in a safe and perfect condition.

Quality - Detail


Viktor Konnov's sculpting work is pretty good on this one (as usual with anything he does).

Just the 3 pieces that you see in the pictures make this nice corner.

The cream colored resin casting is pretty good and there is absolutely not even one air hole (I really hate them).

There are the molding lines that will be shaved off pretty easily with your knife.

The fit of the parts is perfect and the total looks pretty nice.

I would suggest you prime the whole item, so paint gets better in place, since it has a lot of curves and the perfection of surface wouldnít be very helping for the paint to grip on.

The box-art as the painting scheme is the one I would choose, and Andreas work is really inspirational. Itís not pretty easy to paint it so beautifully, but if you donít try you will never know!


Conclusion


Not many words to say in these kits, but the pictures speak for themselves.
If you just get it and use it on a figure base and youíll be pretty happy I think.

About Costas Rodopoulos (Major_Goose)
FROM: KIKLADHES, GREECE / Ελλάδα

I started modelling 27 years ago with some 1/72 planes and military vehicles. Soon the diorama bug got into me and with Sheperd Paynes books I dug in. I loved to build dioramas and military vehicles till the Vietnam Era. I don't like modern stuff so much. 4 years ago I had a crush on figure painti...
