Thanks for the review Engin.

The bust certainly looks very cleanly cast. Apart from the casting blocks I didn't see many lines or much flash - although I will admit to looking rather quickly through the pics and will look again tonight.

I take it since an extra set of goggles are supplied it will be possible to place these on the head of the "cigar head"? Is anything supplied to make the head band for the extra goggles?

I must say I disagree with you on one point. I don't see the lack of a painting guide as a major negative. I believe it makes people research their figure a bit more prior to assembly and painting, and thus reinforces the *historical* aspect of our hobby Just my most humble opinion, dear Doctor

Thanks again for the great review bro!!
