Medieval Children (at Play)

Possibly my Favourite set in 1/72nd...Alex has really brought the expression of happiness and joy of children at play!!!!


I don´t know if the girl is intended for walking on a log..but she fits and wether the the little girl with her doll and the teenager are meant as a pair, but again, they just go together really well.
The one picking his nose....a medieval Peter pan? and I love the idea of giving the boy a cooking pot for a helmet!

Father and son.


The pair playing leapfrog come as seperate pieces....and it took a bit of "supporting scaffolding" around the jumping  one while he was glueing


Why is it that I find Alex´s sets so good? THE FACES!!!! :-D

  2. Good thing macro lenses were invented! Most viewers would miss this wonderful detail just on the table.

  3. What a tremendous talent that Alex is; and my word you've presented them beautifully. The sense of sheer delight on the young lad allowed to wear his father's helmet is my favourite.

  5. Yes the faces really finish them off, though this would be nothing if not for realistic poses and the great paint job.

    You mention glueing, what glue do you use for plastics?
