A good review as always Alan, but the picture on the box is very poor for an advertisment of the product.

Hey Al,
Another detailed review as usual !!
Got to agree with Darren, Resicast's presentation and artwork is very poor and might deter purchases.
Cheers

Hi guys,

Yes, the insert was a bit crinkled, but I didn't really feel like ironing it as this is an In Box review!!! . WYSIWYG

Still it generated a couple of comments which is more than sometimes happens so perhaps that will put a positive spin on it?

Thanks for the comments, this is quite a neat figure and log, I got him as a defender for my 3 inch mortar dio I'm hoping to complete for the Op Market Garden Campaign.

He'll be joining these folks but on a different base:





Cheers

That was good review Al.

Thanks

The artwork on the packaging is not doing any favours for the very nicely sculptured figure.

Nice action dio with the morter crew as well.

Cheers

Hi Michael,

Thanks for you're kind comments.

As above the paper insert seems to have drawn attention to the figure, where-as normally folks don't comment much on reviews.

We do like a bit of the negative to focus on, I can't recall anyone every saying 'Oh, that's a great box they come in." Although box art for some is quite important and I've read the odd comment on that before."

Still never judge a book by its cover

Glad you enjoyed the read.

Cheers

Al
