In-Box Review
54mm
Balustrade XVI-XIX Century

by: Costas Rodopoulos [ MAJOR_GOOSE ]

..a few words..


Since Pegaso started releasing , "Objects" for interior "home decoration" or "exterior" elements, figures bases started to like 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 u ll 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 ur hands in a safe and perffect condition.

Quality - Detail


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

Just the 3 pieces that u see in the pictures make this nice item.

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 ur knife.

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


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

The boxart as painting scheme is the one i would choose , and Andreas work is really inspirational


Conclusion


Not many words to say in these kits, but the pictures speak for themselves
U just get it and use it on a figure base and u ll be pretty happy

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...
