Ever heard of a Sickle Gyro-Cav? I hadn’t either.

In this post, I review the Sickle Gyro-Cav for the Enlightened Faction of Wild West Exodus. Throughout you will see pictures of the mini being built, some scale comparison images and some pictures of the sprues. There is even a video review of this product here too.

The Written Review of the Sickle Gyro-Cav

As you can see from the earlier picture, the Sickle Gyro-Cav comes in an appealing looking box. Here is the back.

Inside are a number of resin sprues.

Building the Model

I clipped out all of the parts and began assembly.

Here are all of the parts cut off of the sprues.

Assembly was straight forward, but I did consult the Wild West Exodus Website to see how to attach the claw. Mine I attached differently then they did, but it all worked out.

Building a Wild West Exodus Enlightened Sickle Gyro-Cav
Being that this is a resin model, you need to use Super Glue to put it together.

As a note, I had to use a lot of glue to get the turbines to stay in place and I had some difficulties with the guns and their holder being attached backwards. At the time of my build, the online instructions had that piece going on the model in the wrong direction.

No big deal, I split the pieces apart and redid them the correct way.

The Finished Model

Below are pictures of the model once I constructed it.

Overall, it is certainly a very interesting miniature.
