It is approximately 2.68″ x 1.97 x 5.83″ high when assembled and this one features the armor of a Templar Knight. During the crusades of the middle ages, these knights were well recognized with their distinctive white mantles emblazoned with a red cross. Though their original purpose was to protect pilgrims from danger eventually they became defenders of the Crusader states in the Holy Land and were known as brave and highly skilled warriors. The sheets contain detailed laser etching for easy removal. Complete instructions are included to show you how to pop out the pieces, bend the tabs, and connect them at the attachment points with an average assembly time of 30-45 minutes.
