The warrior is sculpted clinging to the side of the horse to cover himself while aiming his carbine with one hand. The figure is made up from 18 parts including separate parts for feathers, weapons, the shield and additional details. The carbine is cast with the hand to make assembly easier.

The horse comes in five white metal parts: two body halves, head, tail and ears. The galloping pose, head and muscle details are excellent .Casting is very good but some cleaning and filling are needed during assembly.
A 7 x 3 cm. oval base with mounting holes is also included with the kit. The ground texture is well cast with small rocks
This figure can be an amazing single figure in your display case with a careful paintwork. It can also be a good part of a vignette or diorama with some other Golden West figures.
