Introduction:

ASM-008 Ancient Fountaine is another base kit from the very useful PegasObjects range from Pegaso Models. The magnificent resin kits, at the time of writing only available in 54mm, save the modeler time and effort while providing them with a great presentation for their figure. This particular item, Ancient Fountaine, is masterfully sculpted by talented sculptor Luca Piergentili.

Boxing:

The kit comes in the usual Pegaso figures box but in a brown – yellow color combination. The box-art, painted by Luca Piergentili, shows a painted kit, which serves as a painting guide. The box is filled with paper stripes as protection to the 2 resin pieces, which are inside a zip locker plastic bag.

The Kit:

The joy of the modeler. Only 2 parts create this beautiful fountain. A stone made floor piece and the back part with a highly detailed centerpiece. The dimensions of the built kit are 5 x 5 cm for the base and 7,5 cm of height.

Quality:

The kit is beautifully sculpted, with nice texturing on the surfaces and a complex decoration scheme in the center of the back plate.

The casting (done from the Greek company YS Castings - Masterpieces) is perfect, with no air holes or anything that has to be corrected.

Fit:

The kit is simple to assemble and with some CA glue you would finish the assembly in just few seconds time. I would suggest though, to ensure the perfect right angle, to use two metal pins, so the assembly will be stronger and more secure.

Conclusion:

This is a nice small, neat scenic base kit. Be you novice or master, you will have the possibility to enhance the display of your figure. Suggested for all modelers. Just take some care in painting, and you will be “Pegaso Satisfied”!

SUMMARY
It’s always nice to have a scenic base that compliments your figure. Something that is easy to assemble, high in quality and, most importantly, good looking. Pegaso's Ancient Fountaine is just the ticket!

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...
