I love the look of this, any idea of a distributor in the UK? or if some one will ship one to the UK?

Cheers

Andy

Thanks for the review, Andy. The period is not one that interests me, but the figure looks good. Nice stuff from Vlad.

There seems to be a fair amount of fine flash and pitting - were there many seamlines to clean?

Again, good review - thanks!

Rudi, sorry for the delay in posting!
there was only a little flash, and minimal pitting (maybe 2 or 3 bubbles on the whole figure?). If you see a lot of "pitting" around the scarf, i believe that is texture as it is very uniform and looks the part after painting.
