LEGO® Minifigures 47: Knight

Odd though it may seem, this is the first of my own childhood LEGO figures that I have painted. I'm not saying that I didn't buy any new ones just to paint them, but most of the figures featured previously belong either to my husband or to my children. I was particularly keen to paint this little fellow, as he was one of my favourites, albeit one of my later acquisitions (and my only knight). I distinctly recall buying him from a wonderful toy shop in Tavistock, Devon  (where we were on a family holiday) that sold LEGO by the piece. A rare occurrence, back then!

But all of my LEGO was still at my mother's house, mixed up with my sister's - where it served as a useful diversion for visiting children, mostly my own. So I "borrowed" a few figures, including this one.
