Review

Figure comes in company’s light brown cardboard box labeled with a photo of the painted figure. Inside the box, parts are served with casting blocks and inserted into transparent zip-lock bags. Sculpting and casting quality are nice in clean and crisp details. No casting mistakes and no need to clean on the sample, another prime and paint figure.

  • Body ; He wears traditional Russian Army cotton-wool padded / quilted winter jacket - Telogreika and baggy look trousers - Sharovari with reinforcement patches on the knees. Body proportions, pose balance, folds , wrinkles and details on uniform like collar, padded texture with vertical sewing lines, side pockets, pistol belt over the jacket are nicely sculpted. As for the footgear; he has knee high black leather or kirza / artificial leather Jackboot.

  • Head ; Facial features and tanker helmet details are well defined. He has a WW II canvas Soviet Tanker helmet with horizontal pad to the forehead , three padded ridges to the crown running front to back, pocket pouches to the ears for fitting the integral earphones and rear neck flap folded upwards.

  • Left arm is posed to lean on the tank or somewhere else.

  • Right arm holds a dagger.
