I had this great little cowboy from an old Lifelike kit, so I added him to a horse from Thunderbird Miniatures and this is what I have so far.

Doug, beautiful model. It must do well at the expo. Your painting should inspire others.

What is in the original kit?

Magnificent. I always knew those old Life-like figures painted up well, but this... wow, could bring back the company!

Nice job getting him to sit on the horse so well. Your usual great paint job too. I have Thunderbird's 1/48 mounted trapper leading a pack horse down an incline. They have some very nice figures.

Nice work Doug--as usual. Is it just me, or does he look an awful lot like Jimmy Stewart?
