The foiling took a wee while as I recall and not
always without incident but the finish
looks a whole lot better than
it did so on with the build.

Most of the rest of the kit was ok plating wise,
after going through the parts
I discarded the gratuitously offending helm and
sword blade and hunted down a replacement.
I can't recall where I got them from now,
out of some other incomplete kit I know that much for certain.

Also I felt any self-respecting king wears a cape,
so with the help of some tissue paper, a short length of string,
two small brass discs and some blue paint,
the deed was done.
