Introduction

Once again, inspired by a war-time photo, Vladimir Demchenko sculpted a nice kit to create interesting World War II dioramas or vignettes.


B6-35136 Cross of Wood is a two-figure kit including German soldiers in standard uniforms getting ready for a burial.
Packing & Casting

Kit comes in standard light brown cardboard box labeled with a photo of the figures painted by Vladi. Inside the box; figure bodies and heads, arms and other parts are inserted into seperate transparent zip-lock bags and all lumped together into a larger one.
Parts are cast in medium gray resin and represented with easy to remove casting blocks. Resin quality is good, details are crisp and clean. There is no casting mistakes, air bubbles, flesh resin. Just a few slightly visible seamlines to clean.
Review

Figures come as bodies with seperate heads and arms.

He wears standard Germany Army M36 field uniform of Tunic Feldbluse in grey-green color with five front buttons, four pleated pockets-two breast and two waist -all with flap covers and secured with metal buttons and Trousers Feldhose in stone gray color. Wrinkles and cloth folds, pockets, buttons, collar and collar tabs, shoulder boards and wowen breat eagle over the right breast pocket are all well sculpted. As for footgear, they have Long boots.
