Samurai (90 mm)
Sculpted by V. Konnov for Pegaso. Scale is 90 mm.
All done with acrylics.
A few modifications done on the kit. Cast naginata was removed then replaced by a miniature steel one which was then painted completely without any sculpted details except the ball at the end. Naginata was also reversed and animation of the samurai looks much better now in my humble opinion.
Flag was drilled and brass pin inserted.
Since the attachment of the flag at the back was flimsy, I have added another attachment. It is not historically correct but it is much stronger this way.
Base is American Walnut and was also done by me.

Cheers,

Alex

      Thanks John.. Yes freedhand, that’s what took forever, every lace is painted in “trompe l’oeil” in order to suggest the threads. It was a very fun figure to paint.

    Absolutely stunning work Alex! This project alone vindicates the decision to do away with the invite code! GOLD all the way and surely an Editors Choice to boot!
