Dance Hall Girls

This kit represents two working girls from a dance hall in the Old West. There are a total of 6 soft, cream colored parts to create the two figures. The heads appear to be interchangeable with attachments at the same level. Both faces appear to have attractive features. Attaching them to a base will be a challenge since the feet are quite small, leaving little surface for glue or requiring very careful drilling to insert a pin/rod.

One figure is strangely barefoot in bloomers and a corset with her legs crossed and arms posed as if she were leaning on a bar, piano or table. Fit here was good after cleaning up the excessively large pour plugs on her arms. Placed next to a couple other 54 mm figures, she appears a bit petite but not overly so.

The second figure might be dancing or just showing off a lot of leg. Shes wearing a corset, skirt, garter, stockings and boots. The sample I received had a major over pouring of resin eliminating the supporting leg completely. Since this is inside the skirt, repair would be almost impossible. As it is, the figure is useless.

Presuming the figure is an aberration, this kit would be a decent addition to a Western scene, Id recommend it to someone who has had some experience in removing small parts from large pour plugs.

The kit was courtesy of VLS.
