A bright and well printed manual is inside.

And due to the large amount of white space inside, it doesn’t seem like the build will be that complicated.

If you want to go the extra step, of course there’s a paint color guide inside.

For some final thoughts, the Frame Arms line has always been popular, with a lot of variations, and some quite exclusive ones. With this one, I was especially impressed with the knight look, and can’t wait to see it put together in 3d. With the frame already put together, it shouldn’t take too much time to build. How will it look unpainted though?  Let’s find out in Part 2!
