Painting 1/72 scale figures made easy...
on 1 June 2011
I got this product to use for my hobby of painting little figures of 1/72 scale. After reading the reviews i was not too sure whether to take the plunge or not, but i am very glad i did... This product offers very good angle poise, lighting without overheating, magnification, and does not take up loads of space on my work table. I do have to say that the clip provided for holding this lamp is not as steady as it could be, and i have ended up useing the larger stand for stability. But all-in-all it does the job very well, and has made my hobby much easier to engage in. I would recomend this product to others who paint figures etc, especially when we get to an age where the eyes are not what they used to be. It has won me over from the magnifying headset i got last year simply because it offers much better light, and you don't have to have it stuck to your head!!!!!!! Hope this helps you choose wisely if you are considering this product, i am very pleased with it.
One year on, i have found that two of the bulbs have begun to fail/flicker. You can not replace these as they are on a soldered sealed loop. I contacted Pandora Upholstry who supplied this product asking if they could point me in the right direction to get this sorted, and without question they offered to replace the whole thing if i returned the failing one. This level of customer care seems very rare these days, so "all praise" to Pandora Upholstry for their prompt and first class customer care response. Really can't ask for any more than that from them, and i am still happy with the product. Can not recommend either the product or Pandoras' enough!!!!! both it, and they are well worth investing in. Thank you Pandora Uphostry
