Introduction:

This is one of the first scenery kits released in the range. These kits definitely help the modeler to make a nicer presentation to his figure with less effort than trying to scratch it. Pegaso sceneries are highly detailed resin kits in 54mm scale (so far). This Wood Gate House (XVII – XX Century) is sculpted by talented Russian sculptor Victor Konnov.

Boxing:

The kit comes in the classic size and shape Pegaso figures hard carton box, but in a brown – yellow color scheme, so it’s evident that belongs to another product range. The box art shows a painted kit that serves as a painting guide. The box is filled with paper strips as protection to the 4 resin pieces, which are inside a zip lock plastic bag.

The Kit:

These scenery kits are relatively simple in construction, and this one is no exception. The kit consists of only 4 pieces: a stone “dirt” ground part; a piece of a wooden gate; a stone pole; and the main part of the wall with the column that the gate hangs from.

Quality:

The kit is sculpted really nicely, with good detail on the textures and realistic recreation of the scene. The casting (done from the Greek company YS Castings - Masterpieces) is absolutely flawless with no air holes or anything else that has to be corrected.

Fit:

The kit is pretty easy to assemble. It comes together even easier, with some glue between the 4 pieces and the result is a nice setting for your figure.

Conclusion:

The Wood Gate House creates a classically scenic image. A useful kit for many different figures, that doesn’t need any addition other than a careful painting.

Suggested for all modelers. Take care in painting and you will be “Pegaso Satisfied”!

SUMMARY
This is a very useful base, which will compliment many different figures. This is a great product that serves to make selecting a base a lot easier.

About Costas Rodopoulos (Major_Goose)
FROM: KIKLADHES, GREECE / Ελλάδα

I started modelling 27 years ago with some 1/72 planes and military vehicles. Soon the diorama bug got into me and with Sheperd Paynes books I dug in. I loved to build dioramas and military vehicles till the Vietnam Era. I don't like modern stuff so much. 4 years ago I had a crush on figure painti...
