Well, I reckoned this excellent little white metal kit from Latorre Models had languished in my stash cupboard for long enough.

So I un-boxed him, cleaned up the parts, then drilled and added some locating pins from straightened paperclips. Gave the parts a wash with soapy water, let them air-dry overnight, then slapped a coat of primer onto them.

Straps for his scabbard weren't supplied, so I poked some silk thread through the tiny holes in the scabbard, twisted them together and held them in place with a dab of PVA glue

Almost finished

Fast painter? Tell that to my wife. She's been waiting for me to re-paint the walls in our themed "Japanese Tea Room" upstairs, for months now.
