The casting blocks are easily removed with fine razor saw or sharp model knife with only a couple of very small air holes exposed which can easily be dealt with.
Assembly of the figure was straightforward and helped with small pins on the full body casting for the two boots, one arm and head with corresponding holes in the parts while the other arm has the casting block where the pin would be but still fits okay.
The fabric folds on the priests robes are well done as are the facial features and the whole figure looks very authentic.
The box top can be used as painting guide and the figure will be a very useful addition to any diorama in a European, Russian or Mediterranean setting and just the thing to add a bit of variety.
The figure set is available in the US from VLS and in Australia from Firestorm Models.Thanks to VLS/ModelMecca for the review figure.
