What you get
The bust is sculpted by Pete Morton
, and is a variation on the already available paratrooper Bren Gunner Figure.
The kit comes as nine pieces of cream coloured resin as follows:
1.The body. This is dressed in the series one Denison smock, with webbing, neckerchief and webbing.
2. Right arm. This is a separate part, positioned in a resting pose held across the body, the hand being pre drilled for the insertion of a cigarette. A small length of plastic rod is included for the cigarette. The sculpting of the knitted cuff of the smock is especially good.
3.Head. This is a new sculpt, featuring the a beret rather than the helmet of the full size figure. The facial expression is wonderfully caught, a tribute to both Peter's original and Ian's casting.
5. Right-hand Ammo Pouch
6. Left-hand Ammo Pouch - this has a separate flap, and two magazines of ammo to be placed inside.
The casting blocks all look to be in easy to remove positions and this should build into a very nice addition to anyone's collection.
