54mm
Landsknecht Estandar Bearer 1505

by: Martin Wasiak [ MARTY ]

Landsknecht Estandar Bearer (1505) figure from Andrea is one of the best and most colorful figures I had the pleasure of building.

 

The Kit
This kit comes in eleven metal pieces. They are all well cast with crisp details with no obvious tarnishes. Everything is scaled accordingly.Most parts fit together nicely with two exceptions:

a) The neck needed to be filed a little bit in order to make a seamless connection with the torso
b) Openings in the base had to be adjusted to make this guy’s feet fit in correctly.

I haven’t seen any gaps and there were only few seams that needed to be cleaned off.

Painting the kit:

This is not the easiest figure to paint but if done right can be quite impressive. It was primed with an Armory primer and painted using exclusively Vellejo acrylic paints.
Just like most Andrea kits this one too is very well made. It was a blast to assemble and paint and I would highly recommend it.

I have been building models since I was about ten years old. My uncle, who a the time lived in Holland, introduced me to model-building by giving me some of his unbuilt kits. They were mostly Tamiya's German Armor and figures. I immediately caught the bug so to speak. Like many others, I put my ...
